Agrammatic, Broca's aphasic patients, Wernicke's aphasic patients, and neurologically intact control subjects were asked to detect target letters in prose passages and in a scrambled word passage. The targets were embedded, in some instances, in content words (open-class vocabulary items), and in other instances, in function words (closed-class vocabulary(More)
The frequency of elicited optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) in both directions was studied in subjects instructed to perform mental tasks thought to be asociated primarily with either the right or left hemisphere or a combination of both. A negative relationship between OKN frequency and right-hemisphere activity was more strongly confirmed than the alternative(More)
BACKGROUND Gelsolin is an actin-binding protein found in the cytoplasm and in extracellular fluids including blood plasma. Plasma gelsolin concentration decreases after a wide range of injuries. We hypothesized that the repletion of gelsolin would limit inflammation and tissue injury in a rat model of sepsis using cecal ligation and double puncture (2CLP).(More)
Developmental changes of two mitochondrial enzymes, succinate- and menadione-dependent alpha-glycerophosphate dehydrogenases (SDH, M alpha GPDH) have been studied by histochemical techniques in early autopsy material in the following areas of human neocortex: area 4 (motor cortex), area 17 (visual cortex) and area 40 (associative cortex). Each area studied(More)
This study evaluated the EEG spectral content and the components of the cognitive ERPs evoked by a visual sustained-selective attention task from adolescents diagnosed as having an affective disorder and those who did not (nonreferred controls, CON) to determine if there were different electrophysiological profiles associated with major subtypes of(More)
The effects of protein malnutrition, both in utero and prior to weaning, on formation of the first mandibular molars were evaluated by phase-contrast and electron microscopy in rats. The nourished group (GI) received a diet that included 20% casein, while the malnourished group (GII) received 5% casein. The first mandibular molars from GII exhibited low(More)
It was hypothesized that if eye-position-dependent facilitation of information retrieval underlies the phenomenon of lateral eye movements (LEMs), then subjects whose visual fixation points were assigned during both encoding and retrieval would have better recall when the points for encoding and retrieval were the same than when they were different. Sixty(More)
Conformity to the lateral eye movement patterns of (1) a preferred direction in a face-to-face situation and (2) direction contralateral to the cerebral hemisphere tapped by a question in a nonface-to-face situation was studied in forty right-handed male college students in four groups: (1) Normal vision (N = 10), (2) Nearsighted wearing glasses full-time(More)
Deviations from the true vertical on the Rod and Frame Test were studied in relation to optokinetic nystagmus response during varied mental activities in 14 right-handed male college students. Judgment of the vertical was more accurate for 7 subjects whose frequency of optokinetic nystagmus was high or low in both directions than for those 7 whose(More)
Histochemical studies of muscle specimens from human fetuses showed: (a) a uniform fiber type population having the properties of Type IIC fibres up to 19 weeks of development; (b) a progressive appearance of Type I fibres after that age; (c) a decrease in number of Type IIC fibres during the last 3 months of pregnancy, accompanied by the appearance of Type(More)
