Apomorphine, a dopamine receptor agonist (given in a dose of 0.75 mg s.c.), was administered to 8 healthy volunteers; electroencephalograph (EEG) and event-related potential (ERP) mapping were performed before dosing and 0.5, 1.5 and 2.5 h after dosing. Apomorphine caused an overall increase in beta activity at time 0.5 h in both absolute and relative(More)
Pregnant rats were treated orally with aluminum lactate (400 mg Al/kg/day) during three periods of gestation to determine the treatment's influence on mortality, weight gain, neuromotor maturation, and learning abilities of their pups. No effect of treatment on litter size, mortality rate, and weight gain of pups was detected. In the negative geotaxis test,(More)
INTRODUCTION The central nervous system involvement has been reported in 20% of cases of primary Sjogrën's syndrome (SS), a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by a disorder of the exocrine glands secondary to progressive lymphocyte infiltration. Classically described neurological manifestations include sensorimotor deficits, aseptic meningitis or(More)
N-Acetyltransferase activity (NAT) in the pineal gland has a circadian rhythm which is responsive to environmental light-dark cycles. The rhythm entrains to (synchronizes with or is phased by) light-dark cycles. To assess the means by which phase resetting is accomplished, the phase response of the pineal NAT rhythm to light pulses was examined using chicks(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that the nocturnal oscillations of plasma renin activity (PRA) exactly reflect rapid eye movement (REM) non-REM (NREM) sleep alternation with levels of PRA that increase during NREM sleep and decrease during REM sleep. These studies were based exclusively on conventional scoring of sleep stages. In the present study, we(More)
Plantar fracture-dislocation of the tarso-metatarsal joint (Lisfranc plantar fracture-dislocation) is rather unusual. The authors described a case sustained in a 39 years old man injured in a motorcycle road traffic accident. Mechanism was recognized as plantar hyperflexion combined with an axial foot compression. Open reduction, and K-wires fixation were(More)

The author of this article reviews various techniques in the auditory assessment of infants and young children. The success of these tests depends on the overall functioning of the child, and not on chronological age alone. Any significant deviation from the normal auditory behaviour should raise suspicion of possible auditory impairment. Diagnostic(More)
BACKGROUND In low hepatitis B virus (HBV)-prevalent countries, most HBV-infected persons are unaware of their status. We aimed to evaluate whether (i) previous HBV-testing, (ii) physicians decision to screen, and (iii) CDC's recommendations identified infected individuals and which risk-factor groups needing testing. METHODS During a mass, multi-center(More)
