Local cerebral glucose utilization in non-rapid eye movement sleep
Sleep is accompanied by alterations in neurophysiological activity in many discrete regions in the brain1. Such alterations could be expected to be accompanied by corresponding changes in localExpand

Avoidance of neonatal cortical lesions by developing somatosensory barrels
The barrel-shaped cellular aggregates in layer IV of the rodent somatosensory cortex have been used as landmarks to study the normal and abnormal development of cortical connection. Although much isExpand

Spontaneous helical folding of bis(Ni-salphen) complexes in solution and in the solid state: spectroscopic tracking of the unfolding process induced by Na(+) ions.
Four kinds of bis(Ni-salphen) complexes containing a 2-methylenepropane-1,3-diyl linker were synthesised and characterised. Crystal structural analysis revealed that one of the complexes folded intoExpand
