The most anterior part of area 7 of awake, behaving macaque monkeys was investigated using single cell recording technique. Eighty-five cells from three hemispheres of two monkeys were isolated and studied. These cells showed more complex functional properties than the cells in the primary and secondary cortical fields. Of the cells 61% responded to(More)
The expression of "naming," "commanding," "angry," "frightened," "pleading," "astonished," "satisfied," "admiring," "scornful," and "sad" was with the word [saara] spoken by 12 subjects. Using the same connotations, the 120 utterances were categorized by 73 listeners. Most samples were agreed on by 50%-99% of the judges. Most samples of "astonished,"(More)
The vowel [a:] in a test word, judged normal or dysphonic, was examined with the Self-Organizing Map; the artificial neural network algorithm of Kohonen. The algorithm produces two-dimensional representations (maps) of speech. Input to the acoustic maps consisted of 15-component spectral vectors calculated at 9.83-msec intervals from short-time power(More)
The temporo-parietal association cortex around the caudal end of the Sylvian fissure was studied with the single cell recording technique in three awake behaving Macaca speciosa-monkeys. Of the 197 cells isolated, 5% were active only during the monkey's own movements, mostly during head rotation, and 95% were responsive to sensory stimulation: 54% to(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between the sleep-wake behaviour and neurological impairments among mentally retarded people. The sleep-wake behaviour of 293 mentally retarded subjects living in a rehabilitation center was studied by a standardized observation protocol carried out by trained staff members. The protocol(More)
Copulatory behavior of wild-born individually caged laboratory stumptail monkeys (Macaca arctoides) was investigated. The monkeys were paired daily for 20 min, and altogether 536 pairings were observed. The influence of the female's menstrual cycle and social factors of male sexual activity was determined. The reactions of the other monkeys during a(More)
The self-organizing map, a neural network algorithm of Kohonen, was used for the detection of coarticulatory variation of fricative [s] preceding vowels [a:], [i:], and [u:]. The results were compared with the psychoacoustic classification of the same samples to find out whether the map had extracted perceptually meaningful features of [s]. The map(More)
The lateral part of area 7, area 7b, of alert, behaving macaque monkeys was investigated using transdural microelectrode recording technique. Two hundred twenty-eight cells from five hemispheres of four monkeys were isolated and studied. The functional properties of 2% of the cells isolated remained unidentified. Functions of the identified cells were(More)
The posterolateral part of the parietal association cortex (area 7 of Brodmann) was investigated in three awake, behaving macaque monkeys using transdural microelectrode recording technique. Only one of the 114 cells isolated remained unidentified. Of the cells 79% responded to somesthetic (39%) or visual (23%) or both somesthetic and visual (17%)(More)
Polygraphic (EEG, EOG, EMG) 12-hr recordings were made in 3 adult monkeys (Macaca arctoides) to document their normal sleep pattern and to examine the effects of prazosin, an alpha-1-adrenoceptor antagonist. In comparison to man, REM episodes appeared at shorter intervals (50 min) and they always ended in movement arousal or waking up. As in man the(More)
