With the addition of external dead space in normoxia, PCO2-ventilation response and CO2 production were determined in 10 healthy male subjects. Overall "gain" (G) of the respiratory control system was calculated from the slope of the CO2-response curve (S) and that of the metabolic hyperbola (SL) at alveolar partial pressure of CO2 (PACO2) of the respective(More)
The effect of total asphyxia on dendritic development of the pyramidal cells in the mouse cerebrum was investigated using the Golgi-Cox method. Although neonatal asphyxia did not alter the number of basal dendrites arising from the cell bodies, the dendrites in the 20-day-old treated animals were significantly shorter than those in the controls. Even at 60(More)
The cerebellar granule cell continues to proliferate after birth in the mouse as well as in the human being. Total asphyxia in the neonatal period in 40 mice resulted in a 13% reduction in the granule cell number and a 7% reduction in the Purkinje cell number. Differential effects on granule cell and Purkinje cell populations were noted when particular(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS l-Menthol (LM), sprayed on the distal gastric mucosa, is a safe antispasmodic agent used during esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). However, it seems to affect gastric mucosal endoscopic findings. Therefore, we evaluated whether LM causes specific changes and impacts the endoscopic morphology of gastric lesions.

We recorded ABR in 65 infants and children with developmental retardation and analyzed the relationship between the incidence of abnormal findings and the degree of mental retardation, which was confirmed by follow-up observation and formal intelligence tests. There were 3 cases for whom no response could be obtained. In the 21 retardates with specific(More)
