Libet et al. (1983) developed a method to compare the onset time of a readiness potential (RP) with the onset time of the corresponding intention to perform a spontaneous voluntary motor act. In relation to the onset of the RP, the time of conscious intention to move followed 350 msec later. From these results Libet (1985) concluded that the cerebral(More)
There is evidence from neuropsychological and psychophysical measurements that sensory information is processed in discrete time segments. The segmentation process may be described as neuronal oscillation at a frequency of 30-40 Hz. Stimulus-induced neuronal oscillations of this frequency are found in the middle latency range of the auditory evoked(More)
Stage melanoma IV has a poor prognosis, with a median survival time between 3 and 11 months from the diagnosis of distant metastases. Response rates in first-line regimens are around 20%. To date, no second-line treatment has been established. We performed a randomized, multicentre, second-line clinical phase II study of paclitaxel either as monotherapy or(More)
In an open, randomized, six-period crossover study, the pharmacokinetics of ciprofloxacin, gatifloxacin, grepafloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, and trovafloxacin were compared after a single oral dose in 12 healthy volunteers (6 men and 6 women). The volunteers received 250 mg of ciprofloxacin, 400 mg of gatifloxacin, 600 mg of grepafloxacin, 500 mg of(More)
Auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) were recorded in 15 patients scheduled for minor gynecological procedures. The suppression of a middle latency oscillation about 40 Hz was observed during 2 minutes after injection of the anesthetic agent propofol. The decrease in oscillation frequency during anesthetic induction was evaluated with a fast Fourier(More)
Neuropsychological and neurophysiological investigations indicate that the underlying framework of adequate sensory information processing is a 30-40 Hz oscillatory brain mechanism, which also can be observed in mid-latency auditory evoked potentials (MLA-EP). Since high incidence of stimuli perception and wakefulness is a phenomenon during Caesarean(More)
Neuropsychological and neurophysiological investigations indicate that a 30-40 Hz oscillatory brain mechanism is necessary for the adequate uptake and processing of elementary successive sensory events. An oscillatory component of that particular frequency range can be observed in the mid-latency auditory evoked potential (MLAEP). It is suppressed under(More)
Experimental evidence from various neuropsychological and neurophysiological fields indicates that an oscillatory brain mechanism in a frequency range of 30-40 Hz is necessary for adequate sensory information processing. An oscillatory component of that particular frequency range can also be observed in the mid-latency auditory evoked potentials. Thus(More)
Out of 464 laryngoscopies, 23 patients with premalignant and 55 with malignant laryngeal biopsies were followed-up ten years later. Thirteen of the precancerous became malignant, ten within three months, and three after years. All with severe dysplasia later developed a carcinoma. Most male patients (66%) had glottic carcinomas while most female patients(More)
