Quantitative analyses of the intracellular responses to peripheral stimuli were made in a 172 neurons recorded in the head of the caudate nucleus (Cd) of cat. Responsiveness of Cd neurons was tested using auditory and somatosensory stimuli which were presented unilaterally. We found that most cells (99%) responded to both auditory and somatosensory stimuli.(More)
The effects of baclofen, a gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) analogue, were studied on the intracellular responses of caudate neurons to cortical and thalamic stimulation. Systemic or intracaudate injections of baclofen did not reduce the initial excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) to these stimuli; however, it did completely block evoked(More)
[1] Human activities exert global‐scale impacts on our environment with significant implications for freshwater‐driven services and hazards for humans and nature. Our approach to the science of hydrology needs to significantly change so that we can understand and predict these implications. Such an adjustment is a necessary prerequisite for the development(More)
BACKGROUND Blood-based immunoglobulins (IgGs) may mark the presence of amyloid plaques characterizing the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Previous studies suggest that anti-RAGE and anti-Abeta IgGs increase proportionately with accumulation of amyloid-beta (Abeta) peptides at receptor sites for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), within(More)
Glucose enhances memory in a variety of species. In humans, glucose administration enhances episodic memory encoding, although little is known regarding the neural mechanisms underlying these effects. Here we examined whether elevating blood glucose would enhance functional MRI (fMRI) activation and connectivity in brain regions associated with episodic(More)
In the normal dog we have found that cholinesterase and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) histochemistry define a mosaic structure of the caudate nucleus that is similar to that described in other species. To determine if nigrostriatal afferents interlocked with this mosaic we injected dogs with 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP), a toxin specific(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study evaluated body image assessment and cue reactivity in women with bulimia and controls in response to neutral, mood, and food cues in isolation, and mood and food cues in combination. METHOD Subjects were 7 women with bulimia nervosa and 8 control women. Food cues were individualized high-risk/favorite foods. Low mood was(More)
There have been several calls made for hydrologic synthesis research: namely activities which unify diverse data sources across sites, scales and disciplines to uncover new connections and to promote a holistic understanding of water science. This paper draws on the NSF-funded Hydrological Synthesis Project (HSP) run by the University of Illinois at(More)
