Phosphinothricin is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme glutamine synthetase (GS). The resolution of the native structure of GS from Salmonella typhimurium has been extended to 2.5 A resolution, and the improved model is used to determine the structure of phosphinothricin complexed to GS by difference Fourier methods. The structure suggests a noncovalent,(More)
Extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) including parkinsonism, akathisia, dystonia, and tardive dyskinesia have commonly been associated with acute or chronic administration of neuroleptic drugs. A review of the medical literature reveals a substantial number of cases with similar clinical characteristics associated with the tricyclic antidepressants, monoamine(More)
Alpha power (8-12 Hz) was monitored over the frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital lobes of the left and right cerebral hemispheres while participants mentally rotated three-dimensional shapes to match a specified target. By comparing the activational patterns generated during three experimental conditions, each designed to systematically isolate the(More)
O'Boyle and Benbow (1990) have suggested that enhanced involvement of the right hemisphere (RH) during basic information processing is a neuropsychologic characteristic of the gifted brain. To provide converging evidence for this hypothesis, the present study was conducted using a concurrent finger-tapping paradigm. Specifically, 24 mathematically(More)
Fourteen right-handed males were shown slides of common objects (e.g., wristwatch), familiar situations (e.g., two people shaking hands), and inkblots from a popular projective test (Holtzman, 1986) and then asked to name the object, assess the situation, or describe the most salient image emerging from the inkblot. Alpha power suppression was monitored(More)
Alpha wave (8-12 Hz) activity was monitored over the four lobes of the left and right cerebral hemispheres while 12 male and 12 female participants mentally manipulated circles and arcs to determine size matches. Four task conditions were tested, each designed to tap into the visual encoding, image generation, mental rotation, and comparison/decision(More)
This paper highlights the critical role played by the 'life-context' of the dreamer and the 'setting' of dreaming in the formation and interpretation of dreams. It suggests that we dream not to express our repressed childhood wishes, but to experience the repressed (or the ego-dystonic) aspects of currently active developmental conflicts (i.e. the(More)
