Neuroanatomical studies have demonstrated that the two major descending pathways from the superior colliculus arise from regionally segregated, distinct, cells of origin. Stimulation and lesion studies have implicated the crossed descending tecto-reticulo-spinal projection in approach movements towards novel stimuli whereas the ipsilateral pathway appears(More)
In order to study the distribution and morphological classes of retinal ganglion cells that can be retrogradely labelled from the pulvinar nucleus, we made two iontophoretic injections of horseradish peroxidase into the pulvinar in each hemisphere of five macaque monkeys. The retrogradely labelled ganglion cells projecting to or through the pulvinar nucleus(More)
The impact on vitamin A deficiency (VAD), wasting malnutrition, and excessive childhood mortality of two alternative approaches-nutrition education and mega-dose capsule distribution (6-12-month-olds: 100,000 IU; 1-5-year-olds: 200,000 IU)-in communities in Nepal are compared. Approximately 40,000 children from 75 locations in seven districts in two(More)

We have reviewed 22 patients at a mean of 30 years (28 to 31) after a whiplash injury. A complete recovery had been made in ten (45.5%) while one continued to describe severe symptoms. Persistent disability was associated with psychological distress but both improved in the period between 15 and 30 years after injury. After 30 years, ten patients (45.5%)(More)
A 32-year-old lady presented to our ENT service with worsening tonsillitis. This was one of multiple attacks; all of which had all followed periods of self-induced vomiting due to the patient suffering with bulimia nervosa. Here we present the first ever case report of such a case of tonsillitis and a review of the literature of otolaryngology(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the metabolic effects of biphasic insulin lispro 50/50 in routine clinical practice. A total of 229 patients who were ≥18 years old with diabetes, newly treated with biphasic insulin lispro 50/50, were sourced from six secondary care services in England. METHODS Detailed clinical parameters were compared at(More)
OBJECTIVE Dedicated otolaryngology high dependency units are uncommon. This paper reports the first experiences of such a facility in the UK, assessing reason for admission, duration of stay, occupancy rate and need for care escalation. The study sought to assess the presence of similar units in the UK. METHODS A retrospective review of high dependency(More)
