1. Frequency and space representation in the auditory cortex of the big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus, were studied by recording responses of 223 neurons to acoustic stimuli presented in the bat's frontal auditory space. 2. The majority of the auditory cortical neurons were recorded at a depth of less than 500 microns with a response latency between 8 and 20(More)
This study demonstrates, for the first time, that prolonged unilateral breathing can be harmful to the adult olfactory epithelium. Mice at least 5 months old had one naris closed by cautery and suture. These were divided into 5 groups of 10 mice which had unilateral naris closure for 1, 3, 6, 8 or 12 weeks. A control group of 10 mice was untreated.(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypothermic circulatory arrest has been widely used in complex cardiac and aortic surgery. Stroke and/or neurologic injury can occur after prolonged hypothermic circulatory arrest, possibly due to apoptosis. Ischemic preconditioning has been widely used as a neuroprotective tool, but its application in neuronal injury under hypothermic circulatory(More)
Traffic grooming is applied to WDM optical networks with the intent of provisioning lower rate connection requests onto lightpaths with higher rate. Traffic grooming problem is an optimization problem which mainly focuses on minimization of network cost through minimizing the devices used in the network. Our work focuses on dynamic traffic grooming with(More)
OBJECTIVE This study tested the hypothesis that cardioplegic solution supplemented with a nitric oxide donor agent attenuates postischemic cardiomyocytic apoptosis by reduction of mitochondrial complex I up-regulation during global cardiac arrest under cardiopulmonary bypass. METHODS Twenty-four anesthetized dogs supported by total vented bypass were(More)
A fracture to the intermediate cuneiform that was not definitively detected on routine radiographs because of the overlap of the cuneiform was presented. Weightbearing x-rays did not provide additional information. The anatomical location of the fracture was identified only after a computed tomography scan was performed. An incidental finding, bilateral(More)
