Extensive neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, and behavioral evidence demonstrates that GABAergic neurons inhibit endogenous dopamine release in the mammalian corpus striatum. Positron emission tomography (PET) studies in adult female baboons, using the dopamine D2-specific radiotracer 11C-raclopride, were undertaken to assess the utility of this imaging(More)
The psychostimulant drug of abuse, cocaine (benzoylecgonine methyl ester), is rapidly metabolized by cleavage of its two ester groups, to give benzoylecgonine (BE) and ecgonine methyl ester, and by N-demethylation, to give N-norcocaine (NC). The recent use of [N-methyl-11CH3]cocaine to image brain cocaine binding sites with positron emission tomography(More)
Acquired hemophilia A (AHA) is a rare bleeding disorder caused by autoantibodies against factor VIII (FVIII). Treatment with clopidogrel is a cause of AHA, but its clinical course is unknown. Recently, we treated a 65-year-old man who was hospitalized for cerebellar infarction and had a prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) with soft tissue(More)
Hemobilia is a rare gastrointestinal bleeding, usually caused by injury to the bile duct. Hemobilia after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is generally self-limiting and patients will spontaneously recover, but some severe and fatal hemorrhages have been reported. ERCP-related bowel or bile duct perforation should be managed promptly,(More)
Feedforward and feedback control is developed in this work for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell (FC) systems to do fault detection and isolation (FDI). The fault detection is achieved using a radial basis function (RBF) network model, whilst the fault isolation is based on the RBF classification. One actuator fault, one component fault and three(More)
