The Grid2003 Project has deployed a multivirtual organization, application-driven grid laboratory ("Grid3") that has sustained for several months the production-level services required by physics experiments of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (ATLAS and CMS), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey project, the gravitational wave search experiment LIGO, the BTeV(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury complicates myocardial infarction and stroke by exacerbating tissue damage and increasing risk of mortality. We have recently identified C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) as an endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor in the mesenteric resistance vasculature and described a novel signaling pathway involving(More)
In developing countries with limited no or access to standard audiometric methods a 'voice test' is a potential non-technological alternative method of assessing hearing. A three level 'voice test' was developed, refined and standardised-accurate response to a whispered voice equating with normal hearing, to a conversational voice with mild hearing loss and(More)
This essay examines two possible mechanisms whereby a neuropathy affecting the efferent vestibular innervation may cause incoordination of vestibular afferent input to the Vestibular Integrating Centres: firstly, by loss of the normal fine control of afferent impulses; secondly, by a disruption of the sodium-potassium pump mechanism that maintains the ionic(More)
