One kind of between-list and two kinds of within-list temporal order memory were examined in a patient with selective bilateral hippocampal lesions. This damage disrupted memory for all three kinds of temporal order memory, but left item and word pair recognition relatively intact. These findings are inconsistent with claims that (1) hippocampal lesions,(More)
Twenty-four amnesics, including patients with Korsakoff's disease, post-encephalitic amnesia and amnesia caused by rupture of an anterior communicating artery aneurysm (ACoAA), were compared with 24 matched control subjects on a task in which words were presented in any one of four positions on a computer screen and subjects were instructed to remember both(More)
Two experiments were used to compare the recognition memory of amnesic and normal subjects for intentionally encoded words (targets) and for incidentally encoded words that were meaningfully related to the targets and presented at the same time (interactive context). In both experiments the target recognition of the two groups was matched at a high level by(More)
Groups of amnesics with aetiologies that included chronic alcoholism, encephalitis and ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm (ACoAA) were examined on the Cognitive Estimation Test (CET), FAS Word Fluency Test (FAS) and the full and Nelson (1976) versions of the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST). The alcoholic amnesics were impaired on all four(More)
Two groups of patients with global amnesia resulting either from Korsakoff's syndrome (KS) or from medial temporal lobe (MTL) damage were compared with groups of matched healthy control subjects on a list discrimination paradigm. Item recognition memory was matched across the amnesic and control groups in order to determine whether KS, but not MTL amnesics(More)
Much attention has been given to financial conflicts of interest (COIs) in bioscience research. Yet to date, surprisingly little attention has focused on other COIs that arise in supervisor-student relations. We examine a spectrum of related situations, ranging from standard graduate supervision through to dual relationships sometimes found in research with(More)
Regulation and specificity of membrane trafficking are required to maintain organelle integrity while performing essential cellular transport. Membrane fusion events in all eukaryotic cells are facilitated by the formation of specific SNARE (soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein-attachment protein receptor) complexes between proteins on opposing(More)
OBJECTIVE To use a novel computational approach to examine the molecular pathways involved in cartilage breakdown and to use computer simulation to test possible interventions for reducing collagen release. METHODS We constructed a computational model of the relevant molecular pathways using the Systems Biology Markup Language, a computer-readable format(More)
High-dose etoposide (2.0-2.4 g m(-2)) with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is an effective strategy to mobilize peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPCs), although in some patients this is associated with significant toxicity. Sixty-three patients with malignancy were enrolled into this non-randomized sequential study. The majority (55/63,(More)
INTRODUCTION Current pharmacological therapies in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) are challenged by lack of sustainability and borderline firm evidence of real long-term health benefits. Accordingly, lifestyle intervention remains the corner stone in the management of T2D. However, there is a lack of knowledge regarding the optimal intervention(More)
