Local warming of skin induces vasodilation by unknown mechanisms. To test whether nitric oxide (NO) is involved, we examined effects of NO synthase (NOS) inhibition with NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) on vasodilation induced by local warming of skin in six subjects. Two adjacent sites on the forearm were instrumented with intradermal(More)
In 1984 we made the first observation of a correlation between early age exposure to rural environment (and drinking well water) and development of idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD). These findings were subsequently confirmed elsewhere (Barbeau, 1985;25 Tanner, 1985). Analysis of all early age onset IPD (EPD) cases born and raised in Saskatchewan(More)
We developed an instrument to assess comprehension of informed consent information among 275 adults entering one of four ambulatory trials. At the conclusion of trial enrollment, subjects rated their understanding of the information presented and completed the Deaconess Informed Consent Comprehension Test (DICCT). Subjects completed the vocabulary subtest(More)
BACKGROUND One approach to reduce fatal opioid overdose is by distributing naloxone to law enforcement officers. While several cities have implemented these naloxone programs, little research has investigated officer attitudes about their training. The present research attempts to fill this gap by analyzing survey data from police officers following(More)
Smooth pursuit during prolonged occlusion is improved in the presence of sensorimotor signals when tracking self-generated target motion. The current study investigated whether concurrent arm tracking of externally-generated target motion conveys a similar facilitation to ocular pursuit of transiently occluded constant velocity (Experiment 1) or(More)
When microdialysis (MD) is used to study dermal delivery by iontophoresis, the effects of current may alter MD recovery through an increase in temperature, a change of pH, hyperemia, and dermal hydration. The objective of this work is to assess whether these effects of current may cause a measurable change in the retrodialysis of a model compound (sodium(More)
We hypothesized that maturational changes in both prostaglandin and endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO) activity contribute to developmental changes in endothelium-dependent relaxation of newborn pulmonary arteries. Responses to endothelium-dependent vasodilators acetylcholine, bradykinin, and calcium ionophore A-23187 were determined in(More)
Results from the gamma-ray spectroscopy of {47,48}Ar exemplifying new limits of sensitivity for characterizing neutron-rich nuclei at energies around the Coulomb barrier are presented. The present results, along with interacting shell model calculations, highlight the role of cross-shell excitations and indicate the presence of a nonaxial deformation in(More)
