Oxytocin (OT) and the oxytocin receptor (OTR) seem to be less important for uterine contractility-associated disorders of the non-pregnant uterus compared to the pregnant uterus. In the present study, we investigated the mutual dependence of OTR, OT and 17beta-estradiol (E(2)) with regard to the localization of OTR in the non-pregnant uterus. Utilizing our(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate in vertigo patients in routine practice to what extent a rapid and straightforward triple bedside test (spontaneous nystagmus, head-shaking nystagmus, and the head impulse test) can predict a normal result on caloric testing. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, single-blind, diagnostic study. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS(More)
Population-level effects of global warming result from concurrent direct and indirect processes. They are typically described by physiologically structured population models (PSPMs). Therefore, inverse modelling offers a tool to identify parameters of individual physiological processes through population-level data analysis, e.g. the temperature dependence(More)
Due to human migration and climate change invasion of alien species has been observed in Europe. Recently, the mosquito Aedes albopictus has invaded the south of France. The spatial-temporal dynamics of invasion is studied in dependence of temperature and predation pressure of the resident ecosystem. The main elements population dynamics, predation and(More)
EXTENDED ABSTRACT Seasonal cycles of temperature, water regime and day length act as " Zeitgeber " (timer) triggering stage transitions in the life cycle of organisms provoking temporal patterns of communities at different levels of organization. Climate change is both affecting temperature forcings and water regime. Mathematical models are set up to(More)
