The present paper re-appraises connectionist attempts to explain how human cognitive development appears to progress through a series of sequential stages. Models of performance on the Piagetian balance scale task are the focus of attention. Limitations of these models are discussed and replications and extensions to the work are provided via the(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate beneficial effects of postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on endothelial function, measured as intraplatelet cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP, mediator of nitric oxide), cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP, mediator of prostacyclin) and plasma endothelin-1 (ET-1), and on monocyte activation, measured as plasma(More)

C-Peptide levels, both basal and glucose-stimulated, were contrasted in diet-controllable vs. nondiet-controllable maturity-onset diabetic patients. Fasting and glucose-stimulated plasma C-peptide values in diet-controlled diabetics were similar to those in normal subjects. Diabetic patients who were not solely diet controllable could be differentiated into(More)
A nonobese patient with maturity-onset diabetes mellitus was hospitalized for treatment of an ulcer on his right foot. During this episode, his diabetic control worsened, and he proved unresponsive to exogenous insulin. Unresponsiveness to insulin persisted after healing of the ulcer. Tolbutamide therapy was then begun and produced a marked reduction in(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate effects of postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on von Willebrand factor, factor (F)VIII, factor (F)VII, fibrinogen, antithrombin (AT) III, prothrombin fragments 1 and 2, protein C, total and free protein S, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and resistance to activated protein C.(More)
The relationships between abdominal and pelvic fat compartments and glucose and lipid metabolism were investigated in early postmenopausal women. Fifty-five healthy, postmenopausal women aged 52-53 yr participated in the study. Fat distribution (intra-abdominal and sc abdominal fat, and intrapelvic and sc pelvic fat) was estimated by computed tomography.(More)
The effects of estrogen replacement therapy on lipid and glucose metabolism as related to abdominal fat distribution were investigated in fifty-one healthy postmenopausal women aged 52-53 years. They were randomized to treatment with either estradiol 2 mg or placebo daily for three months in a double-blind design. Forty-six women continued with estradiol(More)
Leukocyte-derived inflammatory mediators and endothelial production of vasoconstrictive factors, such as endothelin-1, and vasodilatory and platelet anti-aggregatory factors, such as nitric oxide (NO) and prostacyclin (PGI2), may have a role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In this study we evaluated whether insulin affects the monocyte-derived(More)
