The motivational and cognitive processes of behavior change in the area of screening mammography were investigated. A total of 676 women, 40 to 79 years old, were recruited for telephone interview through random selection from designated census tracts and were asked questions that assessed mammography stage-of-adoption and decisional balance constructs from(More)
in younger adults (Kohrt et al. 1991). The interrelationships of age, \i02max, and training status are evident when the loss inVO,max with age is compared for active and sedentary individuals (Figure 3-5). When the cardiorespiratory responses of an older adult are coinpared with those of a young or middle-aged adult at the same absolute submaximal rate of(More)
Mesopontine cholinergic neurons activate dopamine neurons important for reward-seeking and locomotor activity. The present studies tested whether cholinergic receptor blockade in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) altered locomotion induced by scopolamine (3 mg/kg i.p.) or by oxotremorine-M (0.1 microg bilaterally in the VTA). It was predicted that(More)
The rarest and least understood of the muscarinic receptors is the M5 subtype. Recombinant methods were used to create mutant mice with a deletion in the third intracellular loop of the M5 receptor gene. Salivation induced by the nonselective muscarinic agonist pilocarpine (1 mg/kg s.c.) was reduced in homozygous mutants from 15 to 60 min after injection as(More)
INTRODUCTION The effective assessment of the integrity of welds is a complicated NDE problem that continues to be a challenge. To be able to completely characterize a weld, detailed knowledge of its tensile strength, ductility, hardness, microstructure, macrostructure, and chemical composition is needed. NDE techniques which can provide information on any(More)
Our recent study has proved a strong correlation between the low-frequency AC applied magnetic field amplitude dependence of the asymmetry of the magnetoacoustic emission (MAE) burst and the strength of the domain wall-defect interaction in iron-base ferromagnets. For the present study the AC magnetic field frequency dependence of the asymmetry has been(More)
