Subcortical and corticothalamic inputs excite thalamic neurons via a diversity of glutamate receptor subtypes. Differential expression of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid (AMPA), kainate, and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor subunits (GluR1-4; GluR5-7; NR1, NR2A-D) on a nucleus- and cell type-specific basis was examined by(More)
The relative abundance of alternatively spliced long (gamma2L) and short (gamma2S) mRNAs of the gamma2 subunit of the gamma-amino butyrate type A (GABAA) receptor was examined in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of schizophrenics and matched controls by using in situ hybridization histochemistry and semiquantitative reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR)(More)
This paper studies the impact of the repeal of the Retirement Earnings Test (RET) for 65-69-year olds on the labor supply of older workers. Under the RET, Social Security Benefits are taxed if labor earnings exceed a stipulated amount. Using life tables from the National Vital Statistics Report, I first demonstrate that for white males, in expected value,(More)
Latent Markov modeling is used as an alternative to the Current Population Survey (Census, 2002) reinterviewing methodology for estimating the measurement error in the recorded employment status. This alternative methodology, which is implemented in the syntax version the Latent GOLD program, turns out to be a promising new approach for estimating(More)
In the past three years, we developed decision-based estimation to estimate survey totals for the Annual Survey of Public Employment and Payroll (ASPEP). Recently, we developed a step-wise ratio method to estimate the Annual Finance Survey (AFS) characteristics of interest: Revenue, Expenditure, Debt, and Asset. In this paper, we discuss some small area(More)
This dissertation investigates the impact of Social Security on the retirement decision. In the first half of the dissertation, I investigate the impact of the repeal of the Retirement Earnings Test (RET) for 65-to-69-year olds on the labor supply of older men. Under the RET, Social Security benefits are taxed if earnings exceed a stipulated amount. white(More)
