===================== Abstract. We have generated surface-based atlases for cerebral and cerebellar cortex in primates (human and macaque) and rodents (rat and mouse). These can be used as substrates for representing and comparing neuroimaging data, cortical partitioning schemes, and many other types of experimental data. Surface-based registration between… (More)
We have determined the concentration and chemical composition of arsenic in the blood of pregnant hamsters between 0.2 and 6 hr after an intraperitoneal injection of a teratogenic dose of radiolabeled sodium arsenate on the morning of the eighth day of gestation. Arsenic was present in plasma and red cells 0.20 hr postinjection. The plasma arsenic… (More)
We have determined the concentration, availability, and chemical status of radiolabeled arsenic in the blood of pregnant hamsters at the beginning (morning of Day 8) and the end (morning of Day 9) of the critical period of embryogenesis. Hamster dams were exposed to teratogenic doses of arsenate by means of osmotic minipumps implanted on the morning of Day… (More)
The authors describe and illustrate an integrated trio of software programs for carrying out surface-based analyses of cerebral cortex. The first component of this trio, SureFit (Surface Reconstruction by Filtering and Intensity Transformations), is used primarily for cortical segmentation, volume visualization, surface generation, and the mapping of… (More)
The antithyroid drug, methimazole (1-methyl-2-thiolimidazole), is a powerful chelator of cupric ion. This is reflected in its ability to selectively inhibit certain copper oxidases. Uricase, ascorbic oxidase and monoamine oxidase are not affected. Ceruloplasmin oxidase is slightly inhibited and tyrosinase is markedly inhibited by methimazole.
We have examined the teratogenic and embryotoxic effects of constant-rate exposure of pregnant hamsters to arsenate by means of subcutaneous implants of osmotic minipumps. Different total exposure regimens were established by varying the duration of minipump implants and by varying the concentration of arsenate in the minipumps. Dams were killed on Day 13… (More)
