Time of conscious intention to act in relation to onset of cerebral activity (readiness-potential). The unconscious initiation of a freely voluntary act.
The recordable cerebral activity (readiness-potential, RP) that precedes a freely voluntary, fully endogenous motor act was directly compared with the reportable time (W) for appearance of theExpand

Time of conscious intention to act in relation to onset of cerebral activity (readiness-potential). The unconscious initiation of a freely voluntary act.
SUMMARY The recordable cerebral activity (readiness-potential, RP) that precedes a freely voluntary, fully endogenous motor act was directly compared with the reportable time (W) for appearance ofExpand

Readiness-potentials preceding unrestricted 'spontaneous' vs. pre-planned voluntary acts.
The nature of readiness-potentials (RPs) that may be associated with fully endogenous, 'freely' voluntary acts was investigated. Restriction on when to act were eliminated and instructions fosteredExpand

Erythropoietin Concentrations in Cerebrospinal Fluid of Nonhuman Primates and Fetal Sheep following High-Dose Recombinant Erythropoietin
Erythropoietin (Epo) decreases neuronal injury and cell death in vitro and in vivo. To lay the groundwork for use of Epo as a potential therapy for brain injury, we tested the hypothesis thatExpand

Fetal cerebral and peripheral circulatory responses to hypoxia after nitric oxide synthase inhibition.
The increase in cerebral blood flow (CBF) during hypoxia in fetal sheep at 0.6 gestation is less than the increase at 0.9 gestation when normalized for differences in baseline CBF and oxygenExpand

Recombinant human erythropoietin stimulates erythropoiesis and reduces erythrocyte transfusions in very low birth weight preterm infants.
DESIGN AND METHODS We hypothesized that treatment with recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO) would stimulate erythropoiesis and would thereby reduce the need for erythrocyte transfusions inExpand

A Phase I/II Trial of High-Dose Erythropoietin in Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants: Pharmacokinetics and Safety
OBJECTIVES. High-dose recombinant erythropoietin is neuroprotective in animal models of neonatal brain injury. Extremely low birth weight infants are at high risk for brain injury andExpand

Preliminary evidence that prenatal alcohol damage may be visible in averaged ultrasound images of the neonatal human corpus callosum.
Brain damage consequent to prenatal alcohol exposure can be detected by measurements of the corpus callosum in the midline magnetic resonance (MR) brain image in adolescents and adults. The presentExpand

Prostaglandins and the developing kidney.
Prostaglandins PGE2, PGD2, PGI2, and PGF2 alpha, as well as thromboxanes and leukotrienes, are synthesized by the fetal and neonatal kidney. The major prostaglandin, PGE2, PGD2, and PGI2, increaseExpand

Cerebral blood flow and metabolism during and after prolonged hypocapnia in newborn lambs.
We studied the effects of prolonged (6 hours) hypocapnia and the abrupt termination thereof on cerebral blood flow and metabolism in six paralyzed, sedated (but not anesthetized) newborn lambs.Expand
