Stochastic resonance (SR) is a phenomenon in which the response of a non-linear system to a weak input signal is optimized by the presence of noise. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the experimental occurrence of SR in electroencephalographic (EEG) activity elicited by mechanical tactile stimuli. Our experiments show that EEG responses evoked by(More)
Internal stochastic resonance is a phenomenon in which the coherence of a non-linear system is enhanced by the presence of a particular, non-zero level of noise generated by internal or external sources without a periodic input signal. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the experimental occurrence of internal stochastic resonance in the coherence(More)
Simultaneous recordings of cortical evoked potentials in the posterior sigmoid gyrus, and spontaneous negative cord dorsum potentials (CDPs) of the L6 lumbar spinal segment, were made in the anaesthetised cat. The electrodes were positioned in cortical and spinal somatosensory regions where the largest spontaneous and evoked negative potentials were(More)
Stochastic resonance (SR) is commonly understood to be the enhancement, by noise, of the response of a system to a weak input signal. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the occurrence of SR in spinal and cortical evoked field potentials (EFPs) elicited by periodic tactile stimuli in the anesthetized cat. The electrodes were positioned in spinal and(More)
Women with a family history of breast cancer (FHBC) are at increased risk for developing this disease. In this study, we have investigated the differences between two groups of women; those with family history of breast cancer (N=42) and women at population risk (N=42) in a Spanish cohort. Questionnaires assessed distress, perception of breast cancer risk,(More)
The effect of para-fluorophenylalanine (PFP) on the production of trisomic plants of Agave tequilana Weber var. Azul produced through somatic embryogenesis was investigated. Normal diploid plants with 2n = 2x = 60 were obtained in the control treatment and with 4 mg L−1 PFP exposure, while use of 8 and 12 mg L−1 PFP led to production of trisomics with 2n =(More)
UNLABELLED Auditory brainstem responses (ABR) reveals the neurophysiological status of the neural axis. In this study we compared the ABR of healthy children, under 1-year-old, with children who suffered from perinatal encephalopathy (PE). OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to characterize the ABR differences between children with PE and healthy(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to describe if neurological damage, in terms of brain lesions, syndrome and syndrome severity led to abnormalities in the brain-stem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs) in order to provide a profile of children that could be used as an indicator of subsequent neurological sequelae. We analyzed the BAEPs from a group of children having(More)
