Resection of the medial temporal lobes in humans produces an anterograde amnesia in which past memories are seemingly intact, but the ability to form new memories is compromised. Efforts to reproduce these symptoms in animals have relied extensively on the delayed non-match-to-sample (DNMS) and the delayed match-to-sample (DMS) tasks. DNMS deficits have(More)
Cryodes were implanted over the prelunate and fusiform gyri in 4 monkeys. The intention was to block the prestriate projection to the inferotemporal cortex (IT). Cooling this cortex produced deficits that were completely reversed by removing the cold. The deficits appeared in the recall of visual discriminations that were learned prior to the application of(More)
Ten patients with small cell lung cancer were treated with high dose human lymphoblastoid interferon (50-100 megaunits m-2) for 5 days, followed by low dose interferon (3 megaunits m-2) for 3 weeks. At the end of treatment, and one month later, there was no evidence of either complete or partial response. The treatment produced fever, anorexia and weight(More)
Two bilateral cooling probes were placed over the parahippocampal gyrus (pg) and the cortex just dorsolateral to it, the posterior inferotemporal gyrus (p.itg) in 4 Macaca fascicularis. Behavioral tests included: delayed match-to-sample (DMS); the acquisition and retention of single visual discriminations; the acquisition and retention of a concurrent(More)
Among the potential candidates for replacement of SiO/sub 2/ or SiO/sub x/N/sub y/ as gate dielectric, HfO/sub 2/ seems to be one of the most promising materials, combining high dielectric permittivity with low leakage current due to a reasonably high barrier height that limits electron tunneling (Peacock and Robertson, 2004). Other requirements on gate(More)
A cross-sectional study was conducted to predict the outcome in patients with subdural empyema, using initial and post-treatment CT scan brain parameters. Data collection was done on those children who were diagnosed to have subdural empyema by CT scan of the brain with contrast, who underwent burrhole evacuation, from February 2000 until April 2002.(More)
This experiment employed reversible cold lesions to assess the possible storage functions of inferotemporal cortex (IT) for visual information. Four Macaca fascicularis were chronically implanted with 4 bilateral sets of cryodes which covered dorsal and ventral IT. Animals learned visual discrimination problems while subsections of IT were cooled. Retention(More)
