Electrical stimulation of the olfactory bulb (OB) produces an evoked potential in the pyriform cortex (PC) characterized by an initial surface-negative wave (period 1) representing activation of PC pyramidal cells via the lateral olfactory tract, followed by a surface-positive wave (period 2) which is temporally associated with recurrent and feed-forward(More)
High-frequency stimulation of the granule cell layer of the olfactory bulb (OB) has previously been shown to result in a form of long-term potentiation in the piriform cortex (PC) that is selective to late components of the potential evoked in the PC58. This phenomenon was explored in male Long-Evans rats with chronically implanted electrodes by recording(More)
The effect of a subconvulsive dose of cocaine or lidocaine on the development of kindling was studied in male Long-Evans rats. Animals were divided into three groups and kindled by daily electrical stimulation of the pyriform cortex. Fifteen minutes before each stimulation each animal received an intraperitoneal injection of either saline, 20 mg/kg cocaine(More)
THIS article describes a new technique for compressing linear-prediction (LP) coefficients by reducing both the redundancy of the coefficients of individual frames and the sequential redundancy of the coefficients in time, using interpolation and quantization of pseudo-formant parameters. In sections I and 2 of the article, the analysis procedure and(More)
MiniMISS is a speech synthesis system designed to produce high quality synthesized speech at a number of remote locations under control from a single central computer. The core of the MiniMISS system is a new speech synthesis machine, inexpensive enough to be produced in quantity, which is placed at the remote location. It decodes a speech signal(More)
Male Long-Evans rats experienced three convulsions induced by intravenously administered pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) and were then kindled by electrical stimulation of the olfactory bulb or amygdala. Pretreatment with PTZ did not alter the rate of kindling in either site but did enhance the expression of kindled seizures once generalization had occurred(More)
COMPUTER-CONTROLLED voice response systems can provide an important medium of communications from computer to student in computer-assisted instruction (CAl) applications. The Institute for Mathematical Studies in the Social Sciences (IMSSS) has, over the last several years, utilized a linear predictive voice response system for its CAl demonstration project(More)
