After pilocarpine-induced status epilepticus, many granule cells born into the postseizure environment migrate aberrantly into the dentate hilus. Hilar ectopic granule cells (HEGCs) are hyperexcitable and may therefore increase circuit excitability. This study determined the distribution of their axons and dendrites. HEGCs and normotopic granule cells were(More)

Whilst the work herein described was mainly concerned with explosives, it illustrates the line of attack which -might be adopted in dealing with one aspect of the prevention of(More)
Women entering the AID programme in Dunedin since 1983 were studied to assess the clinical performance of cryopreservation modifications as well as the early assessment of coexistent infertility factors. The cumulative pregnancy rate for normal pregnancies was 45.5% and 64.7% for three months and six months respectively. The conception rate per cycle was(More)
A 66-year-old man presented with a 1-day history of a mildly pruritic eruption on the face, chest, arms, and upper part of the back. The dermatitis began 3 weeks after receiving an initial infusion of pemetrexed (500 mg/m2) as induction chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer. Physical examination revealed numerous erythematous, scaly papules over the(More)
