Dopamine and the dopamine-derived tetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloids salsolinol and norsalsolinol were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection in 15 regions of the human brain. The regional distribution of dopamine in 32 brains was similar to previous reports with highest concentrations in the basal ganglia,(More)
We report the case of a female patient, who died at the age of 66 years. Besides an insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) she had developed the clinical symptoms of stiff-man-syndrome (SMS) and harbored autoantibodies against glutamate-decarboxylase (GAD) in blood and liquor. GAD catalyzes the biosynthesis of the inhibitory neurotransmitter(More)
OBJECT The availability of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging data obtained in comatose patients after head injury is scarce, because MR imaging is somewhat cumbersome to perform in patients requiring ventilation and because, in the first hours after injury, its relevance is clearly inferior to computerized tomography (CT) scanning. The authors assessed the(More)
Continuous media such as audio and video require a certain quality of service (QoS) when transferred through computer networks. The selection of a network route for a particular media stream should hence take into account which route is best-suited for providing this QoS. QoSFinder is a method for QoS-based routing of multimedia streams. It is based on a(More)
Multimedia systems must be able to support a certain quality of service (QoS) to satisfy the stringent real-time performance requirements of their applications. HeiRAT, the Heidelberg Resource Administration Technique , is a comprehensive QoS management system that was designed and implemented in connection with a distributed multimedia platform for(More)
Digital and interactive TV systems will bring hundreds of TV program channels to the people. Then, the use of existing strategies for channel selection will fail: It is neither possible to select the program by " surfing " through the channels, nor by using printed program guides. This paper describes a new approach towards creation of a Personal Electronic(More)
