Current techniques for reinnervation of the larynx following recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury are limited by synkinesis, which prevents functional recovery. Treatment with neurotrophins (NT) may enhance nerve regeneration and encourage more accurate reinnervation. This study presents the results of using the phrenic nerve transfer method, combined(More)
Context. Previous Spitzer and IRAS observations of the LMC suggest an excess of FIR emission with respect to the gas surface density traced by 12 CO rotational emission lines and H i 21 cm emission. This so-called " FIR excess " is especially noticeable near molecular clouds in the LMC, and has usually been interpreted as indicating the presence of a(More)
We investigate the local correlation betwen the 1.4 GHz radio continuum and 60 µm far-infrared (FIR) emission within the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) on spatial scales between 0.05 and 1.5 kpc. On scales below ∼1 kpc, the radio-FIR correlation is clearly better than the correlation of the cold gas tracers with either the radio or the FIR emission. For the(More)
In human and ovine fetuses, glucocorticoids stimulate leptin secretion, although the extent to which leptin mediates the maturational effects of glucocorticoids on pulmonary development is unclear. This study investigated the effects of leptin administration on indices of lung structure and function before birth. Chronically catheterized singleton sheep(More)
In recent years there has been a growing interest in using antenna arrays at both ends of a wireless communication link. Such multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems are beneficial both in terms of providing greatly improved data rates, as well as in terms of robustness in combating errors compared to systems which use only one antenna. These benefits(More)

A simple method is presented for the quantification of reconstructed image non-uniformity which is both reproducible and sensitive to changes in system response. Each reconstructed transaxial slice is converted into a polar image by stacking together radial profiles measured from the image centre at 15 degree intervals. Calculating the intensity variations(More)
