Previous observations have suggested that a reactive astrocytic response to damage does not occur in fetal brain. In this study the time course of the astrocytic response to injury in fetal and neonatal rat brains has been assessed using the immunoperoxidase technique for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). Cold lesions were induced in utero to the(More)
The relationship of perivascular tissues to arteries and veins in normal brain and glial tumors were investigated by light microscopy and by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Vessels and perivascular tissues were separated through various planes by careful tearing of fixed tissue blocks of brain and tumour. Mirror surfaces of torn blocks were(More)
We develop two combinatorial proofs of the fact that certain Young tableaux are counted by the Catalan numbers. The setting is a larger class of tableaux where labels increase along rows without attention to whether labels increase down columns. We define a new operation called tableau cycling. It is used to duplicate the reflection argument attributed to(More)
This paper looks at the construction of a twisted torus and it proves that when putting a Tr,s around a twisted torus a new torus knot Tr,z, results where z is a function of s, r, and n, where n is the number of twists in the torus. This paper shows that the stick representation on a twisted torus is 2ns + 2s which improves the known upper bounds for the(More)
This study builds on research on the power of counter-stereotypical cues, as well as intergroup contact theory, to consider whether interactions with a female teacher and female peers in a high school engineering classroom decrease male students' gender/science, technology, engineering, and math stereotypical beliefs and whether this varies according to the(More)
