Neuropsychological assessment of mental deterioration: purpose of a brief battery and a probabilistic definition of “normality” and “non‐normality”
ABSTRACT A brief battery for mental deterioration assessment was obtained by Discriminant Analysis techniques from the Mental Deterioration Battery (MDB) (1) and yielded 98 % correct classificationsExpand

Brain circulation during sleep and its relation to extracerebral hemodynamics
Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured in rabbits during the sleep-waking cycle, using radioactive microspheres. rCBF does not change significantly in the transition from wakefulness (W) toExpand

Interindividual differences in the thermoregulatory response to cool exposure in sleeping neonates
Abstract The responses of the thermoregulatory effectors vary greatly among neonates. Therefore, we assume that a small decrease in air temperature from thermoneutrality induces variousExpand

Ultrastructural study of Euplotidium itoi (Ciliata Hypotrichida).
Details of the cortical, cytoplasmic, and nuclear ultrastructure of Euplotidium itoi are provided here for the first time. When these ultrastructural characteristics are compared with theExpand

Sleep related changes in blood pressure in hypocretin-deficient narcoleptic mice.
STUDY OBJECTIVES Although blood pressure during sleep and the difference in blood pressure between sleep and wakefulness carry prognostic information, little is known on their central neuralExpand

The cerebral circulation during sleep: regulation mechanisms and functional implications.
Cerebral blood flow measurements during sleep are reviewed and discussed in relation to the different techniques utilized (Positron Emission Tomography, functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging,Expand

Habituation of sympathetic sudomotor and vasomotor skin responses: neural and non-neural components in healthy subjects
OBJECTIVE Sympathetic skin response (SSR) and skin vasomotor response (SVR) habituation was thought to be induced by neural mechanisms. Here, we investigate the hypothesis that non-neural mechanismsExpand

Central and baroreflex control of heart period during the wake-sleep cycle in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
We investigated whether the relative contribution of the baroreflex and central commands to the control of heart period differs between spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wistar-KyotoExpand

Effect of continuous heat exposure on sleep during partial sleep deprivation.
This study examined the effects of continuous heat exposure on sleep structure during a partial sleep-deprivation regime. The experimental protocol was divided into three periods. After a baselineExpand

Density of perfused brain capillaries in the aged rat during the wake-sleep cycle
Abstract. Structural and functional age-related changes in brain vasculature might affect the cerebral microcirculation. The present study evaluated the density of perfused brain capillaries and theExpand
