With support from the Institutes and Centers forming the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, we have designed and implemented a new initiative for integrating access to and use of Web-based neuroscience resources: the Neuroscience Information Framework. The Framework arises from the expressed need of the neuroscience community for neuroinformatic tools(More)
Dietary supplementation with oligofructose (OFS; 100 g/kg), a non-digestible oligomer of beta-D-fructose, decreases serum triacylglycerols in serum and VLDL of rats. In order to investigate the role of hepatic metabolism in the hypolipidaemic effect of OFS, male Wistar rats were fed on a standard diet with or without 100 g Raftilose P95/kg as OFS source for(More)
The Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF), developed for the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research and available at http://nif.nih.gov and http://neurogateway.org , is built upon a set of coordinated terminology components enabling data and web-resource description and selection. Core NIF terminologies use a straightforward syntax designed for ease of(More)
Two new monoclonal antibodies--BNH9 and BNF13--were generated by using a human lung adenocarcinoma cell line and standard hybridoma techniques. Both were found to react with epithelial and endothelial cells in routinely fixed and embedded tissues. Unexpected membrane labelling of some large cell lymphomas while non-reacting with normal lymphoid cells,(More)
Most clinical studies of the insulin receptor in man have been carried out in circulating cells, mainly monocytes. It is important to establish whether the function of the insulin receptor in blood cells reflects that of the major target tissues. Since peripheral monocytes do not divide, they cannot be studied under continuous cell culture conditions. We,(More)
The Gestalt approach to psychology represents an early but comprehensive and systematic attempt to relate psychological and neural functioning. When the approach was rst formulated and actively researched, however, too little was known about brain function to forge a precise and direct connection. As a result, the approach never fullled its initial promise(More)
