We investigated the role of cross-modal links in spatial attention in modulating the efficiency of dual-task performance. The difficulty of combining speech shadowing with a simulated driving task was modulated by the spatial location from which the speech was presented. In both single- and dual-task conditions, participants found it significantly easier to(More)
Chemotherapy or radiotherapy often cause mucosal damage in the gut (gut mucositis) in cancer patients. As a step to investigate mechanisms underlying subsequent intestinal repair, we have examined the expression profiles of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and its receptor c-met, two molecules previously implicated in tissue repair, in comparison to the(More)
The effects of insulin, epidermal growth factor, insulin-like growth factor-2 and fetal bovine serum on protein synthesis and protein breakdown have been measured in mid-passage and senescent cultures of human diploid lung fibroblasts. Each of the individual growth factors was a potent inhibitor of protein breakdown with no difference in either the maximum(More)
