There is significant interest amongst neuroscientists in sharing neuroscience data and analytical tools. The exchange of neuroscience data and tools between groups affords the opportunity to differently re-analyze previously collected data, encourage new neuroscience interpretations and foster otherwise uninitiated collaborations, and provide a framework(More)
Rendering kittens strabismic by surgical section of the medial rectus muscles results in disruption of binocular convergence in the nucleus of the optic tract. Visual input through the ipsilateral eye of strabismic cats does not influence cells in this nucleus although nearly one half of the cells encountered in normal cats receive inputs from both eyes.(More)
This paper presents a low power wireless acquisition module for use within wearable health monitoring systems and Ambient Assisted Living applications. The acquisition module provides continuous monitoring of the user's electrocardiogram (ECG) and activity, as well as the local temperature at the module. The module is placed on the chest of the user, and(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the results of two-dimensional intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) with the postoperative urinary and anorectal function of rectal cancer patients. A consecutive series of 35 patients undergoing low anterior resection were investigated prospectively. IONM was performed with electric stimulations of the pelvic(More)
Visual acuity of single cells in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of normal cats is significantly higher in lamina A than in lamina A(1). After early deprivation, visual acuity is impaired in both deprived laminae [5]. Reverse closure and forced usage of the early deprived eye leads to a partial recovery of visual acuity. Recovery is more obvious in the(More)
The requirements for neuroinformatics to make a significant impact on neuroscience are not simply technical--the hardware, software, and protocols for collaborative research--they also include the legal and policy frameworks within which projects operate. This is not least because the creation of large collaborative scientific databases amplifies the(More)
Cats can locate objects with their monocularly deprived eye best in the monocular segment of their visual field. In contrast they show a marked deficit towards the midline and an almost total failure in the binocular segment contralateral to the deprived eye. This correlates well with the relative frequency of units in the superior colliculus activated by(More)
