The relative contributions of the ipsilateral and contralateral cerebellar cortex and deep nuclei to delay eyeblink conditioning have been debated and are difficult to survey entirely using typical electrophysiological and lesion techniques. To address these issues, we used single-event functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in the conscious rabbit to(More)
The medial surface areas of the cingulate gyrus (CG) and other midline structures (corpus callosum, thalamus, lateral ventricle) were examined in 27 traumatically brain injured (TBI) and 12 age- and gender-matched control subjects from an established TBI data base. Significant atrophy, primarily in the posterior CG, was found in TBI patients. Degree of(More)
Mucus provides protective functions in the gastrointestinal tract and plays an important role in the adhesion of microorganisms to host surfaces. Mucin glycoproteins polymerize, forming a framework to which certain microbial populations can adhere, including probiotic Lactobacillus species. Numerous mechanisms for adhesion to mucus have been discovered in(More)
Reason-based actions plunge the reasoner into temporal considerations from all angles. We see this not only when time enters explicitly into the problem statement, but also in formal robot blocks-world scenarios, in the Yale Shooting Problem and other associated versions of the frame problem (e.g., [Hanks and McDermott, 1986]), in various specialized(More)
In this paper, we present the modeling and estimation aspects of a virtual reality system for plastic and reconstructive breast surgery. Our system has two modes, a model creation mode and a model tting mode. The model creation mode allows a surgeon to interactively adjust the shape of a virtual breast by v arying key shape variables, analogous to the(More)
We examined asymmetry of hippocampal volume as well as other temporal lobe structures (temporal lobe, temporal horn of the lateral ventricular system, parahippocampal and fusiform gyri) in 194 subjects from the Cache County, Utah study, with varying disorders [85 with Alzheimer's disease (AD), 59 with some cognitive or neuropsychiatric disorder-referenced(More)
The natural reproductive ecology of freshwater eels remained a mystery even after some of their offshore spawning areas were discovered approximately 100 years ago. In this study, we investigate the spawning ecology of freshwater eels for the first time using collections of eggs, larvae and spawning-condition adults of two species in their shared spawning(More)
Of more than 800 species of eels of the order Anguilliformes, only freshwater eels (genus Anguilla with 16 species plus three subspecies) spend most of their lives in freshwater during their catadromous life cycle. Nevertheless, because their spawning areas are located offshore in the open ocean, they migrate back to their specific breeding places in the(More)
The aesthetic outcome of breast cancer treatment is an important factor in breast cancer survivors' quality of life. We investigated new quantitative, objective measurements of breast ptosis based on ratios of distances between fiducial points manually identified in oblique and lateral clinical photographs. Ptosis refers to the extent to which the nipple is(More)
