The computer program HYLAS generates from a standard DNA letter sequence a three-dimensional space curve (H curve) which embodies the entire information content of the original nucleotide sequence. The program can display H curves either as two-dimensional (front and side view) projections or as stereo-pair images. The curves can be marked at specific(More)
We analyzed both trigeminal ganglia of eight post-mortem human subjects for their content of neurons and non-neuronal cells using dissociated cell suspension techniques. Neuronal counts in each of the 16 ganglia ranged from 20,000 to 35,400, with an average of 27,400 +/- 4800, and the estimated ratio of non-neuronal to neuronal cells was 100 to 1. Our(More)
PURPOSE Cellular mechanisms activated during seizures may exacerbate epilepsy. gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in brain, and we hypothesized that brief epileptic seizures may reduce GABA function. METHODS We used audiogenic seizures (AGSs) in genetically epilepsy-prone rats (GEPRs) to investigate effects of seizures(More)
