Event-related covariance (ERC) patterns were computed from pre-stimulus and feedback intervals of a bimanual, visuomotor judgment task performed by 7 right-handed men. Late contingent negative variation (CNV) ERC patterns that preceded subsequently accurate right- or left-hand responses differed from patterns that preceded subsequently inaccurate responses.(More)
To date, it has been thought that cannabinoid receptors in CNS are primarily of the CB1R subtype, with CB2R expressed only in glia and peripheral tissues. However, evidence for the expression of CB2 type cannabinoid receptors at neuronal sites in the CNS is building through anatomical localization of receptors and mRNA in neurons and behavioural studies of(More)
In seven right-handed adults, the brain electrical patterns before accurate performance differed from the patterns before inaccurate performance. Activity overlying the left frontal cortex and the motor and parietal cortices contralateral to the performing hand preceded accurate left- or right-hand performance. Additional strong activity overlying midline(More)
This study assesses the perforation rate of single and double gloves and thus the extent to which double gloving protects the surgeon from diseases transmissible from the patient. We have also investigated whether double gloving offers the patient extra protection by reducing wound sepsis. Two hundred adult hernia repairs were performed, the first 100(More)
A routine audit revealed that in 25 per cent of patients with proximal femoral fracture, hospital stay was complicated by urinary tract infection (UTI). A prospective study was undertaken to investigate the relationship of UTI to fracture type, timing of surgery and the effect of perioperative antibiotics. Eighty-eight patients were investigated over a(More)
A new method that measures between-channel, event-related covariances (ERCs) from scalp-recorded brain signals has been developed. The method was applied to recordings of 26 EEG channels from 7 right-handed men performing a bimanual visuomotor judgment task that required fine motor control. Covariance and time-delay measures were derived from pairs of(More)
A new method of ERP estimation with minimal statistical assumptions is presented. A mathematical pattern classification procedure is used to select trials with discriminable event-related signals in a time interval of interest. A method of forming a reference 'baseline' is also presented. Stimulus-registered and response-registered 'enhanced' ERP averages(More)
Cannabinoids modulate inhibitory GABAergic neurotransmission in many brain regions. Within the temporal lobe, cannabinoid receptors are highly expressed, and are located presynaptically at inhibitory terminals. Here, we have explored the role of type-1 cannabinoid receptors (CB1Rs) at the level of inhibitory synaptic currents and field-recorded network(More)
