Cerebral auditory areas were delineated in the awake, passively listening, rhesus monkey by comparing the rates of glucose utilization in an intact hemisphere and in an acoustically isolated contralateral hemisphere of the same animal. The auditory system defined in this way occupied large portions of cerebral tissue, an extent probably second only to that(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of absolute quantification of regional cerebral glucose utilization (rCMR(glc)) in mice by use of (18)F-FDG and a small animal PET scanner. rCMR(glc) determined with (18)F-FDG PET was compared with values determined simultaneously by the autoradiographic 2-(14)C-DG method. In addition, we(More)
Neonatal hypothyroidism impairs structural maturation in the brain and results in diminished electrical activities and energy metabolism. We recently found that glucose utilization (CMR(glc)) is markedly depressed throughout the brain in mice with targeted mutations in thyroid hormone receptor alpha1 (TR alpha 1), but not TR beta. Previous studies had shown(More)
This research project investigates the factor structure, reliability, and validity of the Marlowe-Crowne Social Desirability Scale (MCSDS) when used with a sample of convicted, adult male sexual offenders. Results confirm the two-factor structure (Denial and Attribution) originally proposed by the authors (Study 1, n = 247). Results also reveal that the(More)
Local cerebral blood flow (CBF) was determined in 30 cerebral structures, including four structures of the whisker-to-barrel cortex sensory pathway, by the quantitative autoradiographic [(14)C]iodoantipyrine method during unilateral vibrissal stimulation in rats administered 0.1 or 1.0 mg/kg haloperidol or its control vehicle intravenously. The low dose of(More)
Fireflies are a unique part of the natural landscape at a global scale. Urban development and changes in the landscape can negatively affect firefly distribution and abundance. Assessment of firefly abundance through counts of bioluminescence flashes provides an environmental quality indicator that can be easily observed and quantified by citizen(More)
Possible involvement of ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) channels in the cerebral blood flow (CBF) response to neuronal functional activation was investigated in unanesthetized rats. Glibenclamide (1, 2, or 10 micromol/l), a specific inhibitor of K(ATP) channels, was infused intracisternally continuously for 30 min prior to and during the 1-min period of(More)
