The greatest suction on the cladding of flat roof low-rise buildings is known to occur beneath the conical vortices that form along the roof edges for cornering winds. In a companion paper, a model of the vortex flow mechanism has been developed which can be used to connect the surface pressure beneath the vortex to adjacent flow conditions. The flow model(More)
participants at the 1999 MSI Trustee's Meeting, the Wharton School, and Duke University for their helpful comments. We also thank Kevin Keller and David Bell for their help in obtaining subjects. Special thanks are due to John Lynch for help with the second manipulation check. ABSTRACT In this research we examine the phenomenon of escalation bias in the(More)
The case is reported of a 45-year-old woman who was being treated for chronic back and right leg pain with intrathecal morphine administered via a subcutaneous continuous-infusion device. She received an accidental 450-mg bolus injection of morphine intrathecally and developed hypertension, status epilepticus, intracerebral hemorrhage, and respiratory(More)
A new technique is described which is suitable for long-term recording of the activity of neurones in the brain of an awake, unrestrained cat. By using telescopic electrodes, neurones up to 39 mm from the cranial surface can be reached with a miniature micromanipulator which is small enough to be left in place between recording sessions. The most stable(More)
The effects of peripheral conditioning stimuli on the thresholds of the jaw opening reflex (JOR) and of trigeminal brain stem neurones to tooth pulp stimulation were examined in chronically prepared, anaesthetized cats. High intensity electrical conditioning stimuli applied to the ipsilateral forepaw produced an increase in the thresholds of both responses,(More)
A method is described which enables single unit recordings to be made from neurones over a wide area of the brain-stem of awake, unrestrained cats. A small headpiece, made from titanium and acrylic, was fixed to the skull over a craniotomy at pre-set stereotaxic co-ordinates. Between recording sessions the craniotomy was sealed. During recording, a(More)
Techniques are described for use in awake, unrestrained cats which enable recordings to be made from the digastric muscle, electrical stimuli to be applied to the teeth, and intravenous injections to be made via an indwelling cannula. A headpiece was fixed to the skull of the animal and leads were passed subcutaneously from it to electrodes in the muscle(More)
