Two experiments were performed to investigate the organization of spatial information in perception and memory. Participants were confronted with map-like configurations of objects which were grouped by color (Experiment 1) or shape (Experiment 2) so as to induce cognitive clustering. Two tasks were administered: speeded verification of spatial relations(More)
Tannin-binding salivary proteins (TBSP) are considered to be counter-defences acquired in the course of evolution by animals whose natural forage contains such tannins. As tannins mostly occur in browse material but not in grasses, it is assumed that grazers do not have a need for TBSP. Whereas it has been shown in several non-ungulate species that TBSP can(More)
Browsing ruminants have been shown to tolerate a certain amount of tannins in their natural diet, and preference trials with captive roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) have suggested an active selection for a low dose of hydrolysable tannins. In this study, we investigated the preference patterns for tannic acid, a source of hydrolysable tannins, and quebracho,(More)
Recently, a magneto binding assay was conducted. The operational principle is based on a 'sandwich' mode of detection, where the target analyte (Concanavalin A) becomes bound nonselectively by protein adsorption between the solid support (silica carrier particles) and the ferromagnetic label (magneto markers). A magnetic transducer was employed for the(More)
Twenty patients undergoing routine left ventricular single-plane angiography have been investigated by an ultrasonic triggered B-scan technique to provide a two-dimensional cross-sectional image of the left ventricle in end-systole end-diastole. An area-length method has been used to establish the correlation between the angiographic and the(More)
If a clinician is faced with acute intoxications a rapid toxicological test is essential. The toxic substances are identified by a combined use of various systems of analysis such as gas chromatography, thin-layer chromatography or UV-spectroscopy. As the result of the analysis a data pattern is obtained which can be interpreted by comparing it with(More)
M-scan echocardiography had suggested that interventricular septal motion in patients with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is immobile. In this study special attention was paid to this septal motion during Real-time B-scan (RTBS) investigations of 15 patients with proven Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. RTBS recordings have shown that the basal part of the(More)
