Modulation of inhibitory synaptic potentials in the piriform cortex. Intracellular recordings from pyramidal neurons in brain slice preparations of the piriform cortex were used to test results from a computational model about the effects of cholinergic agonists on inhibitory synaptic potentials induced by stimulation of afferent fibers in layer Ia and(More)
Norepinephrine has been proposed to influence signal-to-noise ratio within cortical structures, but the exact cellular mechanisms underlying this influence have not been described in detail. Here we present data on a cellular effect of norepinephrine that could contribute to the influence on signal-to-noise ratio. In brain slice preparations of the rat(More)
Pyramidal cells in piriform (olfactory) cortex receive afferent input from the olfactory bulb as well as intrinsic association input from piriform cortex and other cortical areas. These two functionally distinct inputs terminate on adjacent apical dendritic segments of the pyramidal cells located in layer Ia and layer Ib of piriform cortex. Studies with(More)
Diabetes is a disease which occurs when the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin or the body is unable to process it properly. This disease affects slowly the circulatory system including that of the retina. As diabetes progresses, the vision of a patient may start to deteriorate and lead to diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is most common(More)
Vibration of a smart beam is being controlled. This smart beam setup is comprised of actuators and sensors placed at the root of a cantilever beam. Vibrations can be caused by various sources including human activity and nearby motorized equipment. In this case, disturbance is produced using a white noise signal to the actuator. The piezoelectric sensors(More)
— The bandwidth of the wireless signals been separated by means of channels and are sent to the base station for Transmission and reception in wireless communications. Each channel is of different frequency and the corresponding transmitter and receiver are able to identify the signals of the respective channel without any noise. To design a basic multiple(More)
