Observers tend to remember seeing a greater expanse of a scene than was shown (boundary extension [BE]). Is undivided visual attention necessary for BE? In Experiment 1, 108 observers viewed photographs with superimposed numerals (2s and 5s). Each appeared for 750 msec, followed by a masked interval and a test picture (same, closer up, or wider angled).(More)
An improved three-step Percoll density gradient centrifugation technique is described for simultaneous isolation of glial plasmalemmal vesicles (GPV) and synaptosomal vesicles (SYN) from a rat brain homogenate. While electron microscopy revealed that fractions contained intact vesicles with markedly distinct morphological features, measures of high-affinity(More)
High-affinity L-glutamate (GLU) transport is an important regulator of excitatory amino acid (EAA) concentrations in brain extracellular fluid and may play a key role in excitatory synaptic transmission. In view of evidence that EAA transporters (EAAT) are heterogenous and contain consensus sites for phosphorylation, this investigation was undertaken to(More)
Phorbol-12,13-dibutyrate (PDBu), an activator of protein kinase C, was used to evaluate potential age-related changes in phosphorylation-dependent facilitation of high-affinity L-glutamate uptake in the rat central nervous system (CNS). Forebrain homogenates from male Fischer-344/brown Norway F1 hybrid rats were separated into glia-enriched (glial(More)
