Long-term potentiation (LTP) is an experience-dependent form of neural plasticity believed to involve mechanisms that underlie memory formation. LTP has been studied most extensively in the hippocampus, but the relation between hippocampal LTP and memory has been difficult to establish. Here we explore the relation between LTP and memory in fear(More)
Rats treated with the AMPA receptor-facilitating drug 1-(quinoxolin-6-ylcarbonyl)piperidine (BDP-12) during training acquired fear conditioning to a tone faster than vehicle-treated controls. The effect on acquisition was dependent on the dose given. BDP-12-treated rats and vehicle-treated controls reached the same level of conditioned fear and extinguished(More)
In Hobukesar, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, (China), a mass-screening programme for human cystic echinococcosis (CE)was performed during 1995 and 1996. After the survey 51 cases were followed-up using ultrasound scan and serology for 1-8 years(1996-2003). These included 20 CE cases treated by surgery (endocystectomy), four CE cases treated by(More)
AIMS To develop a competitive agglutination inhibition assay (CAIA) for the detection of anti-Toxic Shock Syndrome Toxin-1 (TSST-1) antibody in serum samples using a commercially available reverse passive agglutination assay (RPLA) kit. METHODS AND RESULTS TSST-1 toxin and sera were incubated together, so that anti-toxin IgG would complex with the toxin.(More)
