The circalunidian hypothesis that tidal rhythms in coastal animals are controlled by two lunar-day (c.24.8 h) oscillators coupled in antiphase is challenged. Rhythmic locomotor activity patterns of the shore crab Carcinus maenas, and probably of some other species too, are more economically explained by interacting circadian (c.24 h) and true circatidal(More)
Sense of identity is thought to be closely related to autobiographical memory. Theoretical models of awareness suggest that both may also be related to level of awareness of memory functioning among people with early-stage dementia. This study explores the relationships between autobiographical memory, identity and awareness in early-stage dementia. Thirty(More)
AIM To design and evaluate a clinical decision support system (CDSS) to support cardiovascular risk prevention in type 2 diabetes. METHODS A preliminary requirements specification and three prototype CDSS interface designs were developed. Seven patients and seven clinicians conducted 'usability tests' on five different task scenarios with the CDSS(More)
Noncapsulate Haemophilus influenzae is commonly found in the airways of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), both during stable disease and during exacerbations. Neutrophils are also found in large numbers in sputum from patients with COPD, which also contains released neutrophil products such as elastase. Why H. influenzae colonizes(More)
The best general hypothesis for the control of 'spontaneous' tidal and daily patterns of behaviour in coastal animals postulates an endogenous physiological pacemaker system which generates approximate periodicity, together with environmental adjustment of the clock(s) to local time. Free-running endogenous rhythms of circatidal, circadian, circasemilunar(More)
In response to my advocacy of a circatidal/circadian model to explain behavioral rhythms in Carcinus (1), Palmer (2) raises questions concerning my initial premise, the nature of one of my model parameters, and the form of data analysis that I used. These questions are responded to and it is restated that the circatidal/circadian model of clock control(More)
Individuals of the shore crab Carcinus maenas were exposed to artificial cycles, applied in tidal antiphase, of pairs of the three major environmental variables that entrain circatidal rhythmicity in this species: salinity, temperature, and hydrostatic pressure. During entrainment, the observed locomotor activity patterns were dominated by exogenous(More)
