Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to evaluate the effects of oral d-amphetamine on brain activation elicited by auditory and simple motor tasks in ten normal right-handed subjects. We measured the percent signal change and number of voxels activated by a tone discrimination task and a right hand finger-tapping task after 20 mg of d-amphetamine(More)
Access to the central venous circulation is often necessary in patients who have elevated intracranial pressure. It has been suggested that a disadvantage of the internal jugular vein approach to the central circulation may be an elevated intracranial pressure.
