Although sound-producing (sonic) muscles attached to fish swimbladders are the fastest known vertebrate muscles, the functional requirement for such extreme speed has never been addressed. We measured movement of the swimbladder caused by sonic muscle stimulation in the oyster toadfish Opsanus tau and related it to major features of the sound waveform. The(More)
Recent studies have shown that there is increased production of deleterious free radicals following acute subdural hematoma (ASDH). Scavenging them may therefore be of therapeutic benefit. Nitroxides are new, low molecular weight, cell permeable superoxide dismutase mimics. This study investigated the neuroprotective effect of(More)
Several groups of structurally-related compounds, comprised of either five or six-membered ring structures with attached lipophilic carbon chains and in some cases possessing halogen atoms, have been isolated from various marine algae and filamentous cyanobacteria. The related compounds considered in the present work include the coibacins, laurenciones,(More)
