This study examines the attitudes of 176 Israel Defense Forces officers toward combat stress reaction (CSR) in four areas: (1) the degree of personal responsibility the officer accepts for the treatment of the CSR casualty; (2) the type of treatment the officer views as most effective for CSR; (3) the officer's willingness to accept the CSR casualty's(More)
It is widely accepted that learning first involves generating new memories and then consolidating them into long-term memory. Thus learning is generally viewed as a single continuous process with two sequential stages; acquisition and consolidation. Here, we tested an alternative hypothesis proposing that acquisition and consolidation take place, at least(More)
Neurons in the motor areas of cortex play a key role in associating sensory instructions with movements. However, their ability to acquire and maintain representations of novel stimulus features, especially when these features are behaviorally relevant, remains unknown. We investigated neuronal changes in these areas during and after associative learning,(More)
Some motor tasks, if learned together, interfere with each other's consolidation and subsequent retention, whereas other tasks do not. Interfering tasks are said to employ the same internal model whereas noninterfering tasks use different models. The division of function among internal models, as well as their possible neural substrates, are not well(More)
Correct localization of epileptic foci can improve surgical outcome in patients with drug-resistant seizures. Our aim was to demonstrate that systemically injected nanoparticles identify activated immune cells, which have been reported to accumulate in epileptogenic brain tissue. Fluorescent and magnetite-labeled nanoparticles were injected intravenously to(More)
Simple, convenient radioimmunoassays for total triiodothyronine and total thyroxine in human serum are discribed. Ascending dry column chromatography is used to separate the free and antibody-bound hormone. The method allows for separation by absorption, without centrifugation. The use of test tubes containing pre-measured quantities of lyophilized(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the association between hyperglycemia and electrical brain activity in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). METHODS Nine youths with T1DM were monitored simultaneously and continuously by EEG and continuous glucose monitor system, for 40 h. EEG powers of 0.5-80 Hz frequency bands in all the different brain regions were analyzed according(More)
