The purpose of this work was to determine the temporal origins of the standard deviation of successive 5-min mean heart period sequences (SDANN) and the power of the ultralow-frequency (ULF) spectral band (< 0.0033 Hz). We hypothesized that SDANN and ULF might have their origins in changes in human activity rather than slow oscillatory rhythms. Heart period(More)
Multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) provides a well-established family of decision tools to aid stakeholder groups in arriving at collective decisions. MCDA can also function as a framework for the social learning process, serving as an educational aid in decision problems characterized by a high level of public participation. In this paper, the(More)
Background: There is currently conflicting evidence surrounding the effects of obesity on postoperative outcomes. Previous studies have found obesity to be associated with adverse events, but others have found no association. The aim of this study was to determine whether increasing body mass index (BMI) is an independent risk factor for development of(More)
We have studied the calcium-binding properties of two high affinity calcium-binding proteins from squid optic lobes: one, squid calmodulin (SCaM), similar to bovine brain calmodulin (BCaM), the other, squid calcium-binding protein (SCaBP), distinct (Head, J.F., Spielberg, S., and Kaminer, B. (1983) Biochem J. 209, 797-802). Equilibrium dialysis measurements(More)
