A welding head is under development with integrated sensory systems for robotic laser welding applications. Robotic laser welding requires sensory systems that are capable to accurately guide the welding head over a seam in three-dimensional space and provide information about the welding process as well as the quality of the welding result.

Brain cortex slices from diabetic rats incubated in Krebs-Ringer-bicarbonate (KRB)--glucose medium show, compared to the normals, a 75% higher glutamine content. Branched chain amino acids (BCAA) added, at 0.5mM each, to this medium increase (53%) the glutamine content in the normal slices but have no effect on the glutamine content in the slices from(More)
Glucose is the major fuel of the adult brain under normal conditions. The most abundant free amino acids of the brain are: Glutamate, taurine N-acetylaspartate, glutamine, aspartate and 4-aminobutyrate. Deprivation of glucose from the incubation medium of brain cortex slices decreases mainly glutamate and glutamine content. Substitution of pyruvate for(More)
