Although membrane sites from brain, labelled with [3H]glutamate (Glu) under sodium-free conditions, are thought to represent excitatory receptors, certain anomalous characteristics of the kinetics of apparent binding raised the question of whether transport might contribute to this process, prompting a closer examination of it. Hyperosmolar media and low(More)
OBJECTIVE The Concerto Pin is a new cochlear implant system, designed by Med-El to require minimally invasive surgery and to allow greater positional flexibility in its fixation on the skull. The aim of this study was to measure the load needed to displace the implant from a human skull. STUDY DESIGN This was a laboratory investigation under controlled(More)
A simple, inexpensive and reliable microcomputer-assisted method to detect and quantify abnormal EEG spiking is described. High frequency wave forms (20-40 Hz) with high amplitude are discriminated using a beta-2 bandpass filter and a threshold comparater. The spikes are then compiled and reported by an Apple II+ microcomputer. The method was validated by(More)
The dipeptide, L-phenylalanyl-L-glutamate (PG), augments the specific binding of the excitatory amino acid receptor antagonist, [3H]2-amino-7-phosphonoheptanoic acid (APH), to rat forebrain membranes by 5-fold at 100 microM with an EC50 of 4.9 microM. The increase in the specific binding of [3H]AHP induced by PG results exclusively from an increase in Bmax.(More)
