In monkeys, neurons in the hand representation of the primary motor cortex (M1) are often tuned to the direction of hand movement, and there is evidence that these neurons are clustered according to their "preferred" direction of movement. However, this organizational principle has yet to be demonstrated in M1 of humans. We conducted a functional magnetic(More)
The human primary motor cortex (M1) is robustly activated during visually guided hand movements. M1 multivoxel patterns of functional MRI activation are more correlated during repeated hand movements to the same targets than to greatly differing ones, and therefore potentially contain information about movement direction. It is unclear, however, whether(More)
We studied exposure-induced sensitivity changes in an identified taste cell from Manduca sexta, a herbivorous caterpillar. This taste cell occurs within the lateral styloconic sensillum and responds selectively to compounds that humans characterize as bitter (e.g. caffeine, salicin and aristolochic acid). We made extracellular recordings from several(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of vital capacity (VC) and a proposed ventilator requirement index (VRI) for justifying ventilator prescription and use for patients with neuromuscular/chest wall diseases (NMD). DESIGN Prospective observational study in which 319 patients with NMD, including 187 ventilator users, were separated into four groups: (1)(More)
