Previous work (Willingham, 1999) has indicated that implicit motor sequence learning is not primarily perceptual; that is, what is learned is not a sequence of stimuli. Still other work has indicated that implicit motor sequence learning is not specific to particular muscle groups or effectors. In the present work, we tested whether implicit motor sequence… (More)
A controlled study in patients with bulimia demonstrated a significant benefit from desipramine hydrochloride treatment (91% decrease in binge frequency) in contrast to the results from a placebo (19% increase in frequency). When patients originally taking the placebo crossed over to desipramine therapy, their frequency of binges decreased 84%, so that the… (More)
We report the fabrication of a scaffold (hereafter referred to as AngioChip) that supports the assembly of parenchymal cells on a mechanically tunable matrix surrounding a perfusable, branched, three-dimensional microchannel network coated with endothelial cells. The design of AngioChip decouples the material choices for the engineered vessel network and… (More)
BV (RI) KC light curves are presented for 27 Type Ia supernovae discovered during the course of the Calán/Tololo Survey and for two other SNe Ia observed during the same period. Estimates of the maximum light magnitudes in the B, V , and I bands and the initial decline rate parameter ∆m 15 (B) are also given.
Four adolescent student populations (totalling 686 girls and 705 boys) completed confidential questionnaires (98.6% response rate) concerning bulimia nervosa and alcohol abuse. All of the DSM-III-R criteria for bulimia nervosa were met by 2.0% of the girls and 0.1% of the boys. On the basis of score greater than or equal to 42 on the Adolescent Alcohol… (More)
Recent reports have suggested that normal-weight bulimic patients without clinical evidence of major depressive disorder will have an abnormal response to dexamethasone. Of 23 normal-weight bulimic patients without clinical evidence of major depressive disorder, 11 had abnormal results on their dexamethasone suppression tests (DSTs). This finding closely… (More)
The authors review some features of the neuroendocrine regulation and neuropharmacologic manipulation of human growth hormone and then discuss some of the data that suggest that this hormone system might be involved in various psychiatric disorders. While emphasis is put on alcoholism and the affective disorders, the effects of stress, psychosocial… (More)
