Optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) is a reflexive eye movement with a characteristic pattern of alternating fast and slow phases (resembling a noisy sawtooth), but with significant variation in the timing and amplitude of its components. We attempt to predict the sequence of OKN fast and slow phases by embedding them in state space and forming local approximations(More)
By conventional criteria, an apneic patient's PaCO2 must be greater than 60 mm Hg before apnea can be attributed to brain death. The rate of a PaCO2 increase in the apneic patient traditionally has been thought to be in the range of 3 mm Hg/min. In order to assess the validity of these data and the validity of the "apnea test" for determination of brain(More)
BACKGROUND There is considerable research examining differences in adolescent and adult sensitivity and tolerance to ethanol related behavioral phenotypes. However, the available published data has almost exclusively assessed these behaviors in outbred rats. The present study was conducted using the alcohol preferring inbred mouse strain C57BL/6J (B6) and(More)
Animal models of prenatal ethanol exposure are necessary to more fully understand the effects of ethanol on the developing embryo/fetus. However, most models employ procedures that may produce additional maternal stress beyond that produced by ethanol alone. We employed a daily limited-access ethanol intake model called Drinking in the Dark (DID) to assess(More)
