Involvement of hippocampus in short-delay eye blink conditioning was reexamined during conditioned response (CR) consolidation. Rabbits received bilateral hippocampectomy, removal of overlying neocortex, or sham lesions and were trained with tone/puff pairings to early acquisition (consolidation) or well trained (overtraining); retention was tested. Two(More)
Microcomputer software was designed and used to control the timing and delivery of sensory stimuli and to acquire and analyze behavioral data during classical conditioning experiments. The software package runs under DOS 4.x through 6.x (earlier versions run under DOS 3.x) on PC AT-compatible microcomputers coupled with appropriate interface hardware (see(More)
This paper describes a reliable, durable, and readily calibrated hardware interface system designed to present sensory stimuli at precise time intervals and to transduce and digitize behavioral data in classical conditioning experiments. It has been extensively tested in a 'model'-associative learning task, conditioning of eyeblink or nictitating membrane(More)
BACKGROUND Tetanus, a disease that is largely preventable, is still a major public health problem in the developing world and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. There is a paucity of published literature on adult (non-neonatal) tetanus in this study area in Nigeria. METHODS This was a study describing the clinical characteristics of patients(More)
