To evaluate the influence of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) epsilon4 allele on the age at which Alzheimer-like lesions appear in the brain, we analyzed the degree of cerebral beta-amyloidosis and neurofibrillary tangle formation in the hippocampal formation and adjacent cortical areas 28, 27, and 36 of persons who had died between the ages of 50 and 93 years(More)
The influence of varying the muscular afferent fiber input on both the normal firing rate (Fn) and the amount of recurrent inhibition (Fn-Fi) induced by a constant ventral root stimulation was investigated on tonic extensor motoneurons recorded from ventral root filaments in decerebrate cats. The afferent input was varied by graded electrical stimulation of(More)

Retinal functions were studied in 7 patients with snowflake degeneration and correlated with fundus appearance. Despite the presence of vitreous turbidity, scotomatic glare sensitivity was slightly elevated in only one case. Retinal functions were affected more extensively in the late stages of the disease; however, abnormal retinal functions were also(More)
Eleven normal adults each performed a ten minute progressive isocapnic hyperventilation (PIHV) test in which ventilatory levels were increased every two minutes. All subjects exhibited mechanical fatigue by failing to maintain the target of 80% of maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV). The mean ventilation at this level was 67.5 +/- 1.4% MVV. This fatigue was(More)
This study investigated the relationship between field independence and defense clustering as measured by the Defense Mechanisms Inventory and lateral eye movements. Subjects had previously been classified either as hysterical or obsessive style by the Rorschach and WAIS Comprehension subtest. Previous findings indicate that these subjects have a preferred(More)
