Assessments of the impact of offshore energy developments are constrained because it is not known whether fine-scale behavioural responses to noise lead to broader-scale displacement of protected small cetaceans. We used passive acoustic monitoring and digital aerial surveys to study changes in the occurrence of harbour porpoises across a 2000 km(2) study(More)
We studied the relationship of the administration and dosage of steroids to the development of avascular necrosis of bone in 168 patients who had had a heart transplantation (156 patients) or a heart and lung transplantation (twelve patients). One hundred and forty-one of the patients were male and twenty-seven were female. The average age was forty-five(More)
Previous studies which have examined the effects of lesions of the habenula on active avoidance learning have not provided unambiguous support for response deficits. Moreover, interpretation of early studies is confounded by large lesions which damaged adjacent structures. We report the effects of smaller circumscribed lesions of the habenula complex on a(More)
An interchangeability between the effects of stress and psychostimulants has been reported. The possible common physiological effects of lesions of the habenula, stress and psychostimulant administration of activation of ascending dopamine systems suggested examination of a cross-sensitization between lesions of the habenula and psychostimulant(More)
We present a Geographic Information System (GIS) tool, SeaMaST (Seabird Mapping and Sensitivity Tool), to provide evidence on the use of sea areas by seabirds and inshore waterbirds in English territorial waters, mapping their relative sensitivity to offshore wind farms. SeaMaST is a freely available evidence source for use by all connected to the offshore(More)
The anatomical connections of the habenula complex indicate it provides a relay between limbic forebrain and midbrain. Somewhat paradoxically, consequences of nonspecific lesion of the habenula are ambiguous with little change in basic response evident within simple behavioral paradigms. However, the potential functional importance for this relay has more(More)
The effects of lesions of the habenula on responses during a forced swimming test (FST) were examined. Active behavior, documented by turns on a drum immersed in a water tank, were reduced in lesioned rats. Lesioned rats also demonstrated an inability to escape from the water by climbing onto the drum when it was locked in position at the end of the test.(More)

The pathogenesis of both Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) and avascular necrosis (AVN) remains controversial. Evidence suggests, however, that both conditions are produced by vascular compromise in the femoral head. A patient with a previous history of LCPD at age eight subsequently developed AVN at age 46 after having a cardiac transplant for ischemic(More)
