There is evidence of the central regulation of intraocular pressure, and it has been suggested that vagal tone might be increased in glaucoma simplex. The nasal cycle, the simultaneous congestion-decongestion response in the nasal cavities, reflects the dynamic lateralisation of the autonomic nervous system. Since this lateralisation presents with(More)

Our objectives were to assess the efficacy and toxicity of gemcitabine plus cisplatin as first-line therapy in metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Patients with stage IV MBC and no prior chemotherapy for metastatic disease were treated with gemcitabine 1200 mg/m on days 1 and 8, and cisplatin 75 mg/m on day 1 every 21 days. Up to 6 cycles were given. A total of(More)
Using a microcomputer system, 36 patients were continuously monitored with somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) following closed head injury. The mean duration of monitoring was five days. The patients' GCS scores at the start of monitoring ranged from 3-10. Mortality was 44%. Of 14 patients who had initial absence of SSEP activity after the N20 wave or(More)
INTRODUCTION Numerous reports show that lesions to hippocampus afferents, such as the entorhinal cortex (EC) and the fimbria fornix (FF), exert an effect on memory in rodents. There are, however, no long term comparative studies that show which of these lesions could be most useful as a model for studies into neuroplasticity. MATERIAL AND METHODS Young(More)
