An acute inhalation chamber study of 42 college students was performed to investigate the relation between exposure to 0, 75, and 150 ppm of toluene and changes in central nervous system function and symptoms. Paid subjects were exposed for seven hours over three days. Verbal and visual short term memory (Sternberg, digit span, Benton, pattern memory);(More)
A comparison of toluene and ethanol (EtOH) induced changes in central nervous system (CNS) function and symptoms were evaluated in two studies, and when possible the effects of toluene were expressed in EtOH equivalent units. The toluene concentrations were 0, 75, and 150 ppm, bracketing the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists(More)
This paper presents an enhanced 32-bit carry look-ahead (CLA) adder implemented using the multi-output enable /disable CMOS differential logic (MOECDL) style. The MOECDL structure proposed represents a promising technique for iterative networks and self-timed circuits. The recursive property of CLA algorithm has been efficiently exploited to demonstrate the(More)
Neonates that suffer oxygen deprivation during birth can have long lasting cognitive deficits, such as memory and learning impairments. Hippocampus, one of the main structures that participate in memory and learning processes, is a plastic and dynamic structure that conserves during life span the property of generating new cells which can become neurons,(More)
~~ ~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~~ We examined 502 subjects, 247 of whom had occupational elemental mercury exposures 20 to 35 years previously, to identify potential exposure-related neurological abnormalities. Few significant (p < 0.05) differences existed between exposed and unexposed subjects. However, multiple linear regression analysis demonstrated several significant(More)
