Immunotoxic lesions of the diagonal band of Broca (VDB) in monkeys disrupted cholinergic input to the hippocampus, producing impaired learning of visuospatial conditional discriminations but not simple visual discriminations. Immunotoxic lesions of the basal nucleus of Meynert (NBM) deprived the cortex of most of its cholinergic input, producing impaired(More)
Monkeys with immunotoxic lesions of both the basal nucleus of Meynert and the vertical limb of the diagonal band of Broca (NBM+VDB) lost cholinergic innervation throughout the cortex and hippocampus. They were impaired at learning discriminations between objects differing in either few, or many, attributes and at learning visuospatial conditional(More)
1. 2,4-dinitrophenol, 2,4-dinitrophenetole, 2,4-dinitronaphthol, 4,6-dinitro-o-cresol, and to a lesser extent picric acid, produced an increase in bile flow and a rise in body temperature in the anaesthetized dog. The total biliary bromsulphalein (BSP) excretion in unit time was either slightly reduced, increased or remained at its pre-injection level.2.(More)
Feeding through a gastrostomy button (GB) provides benefits to the families of children on chronic dialysis. But data on the transition to oral feeding following renal transplantation--especially in children under 2--is scarce. Here, we report our experience of more than 14 years in 22 children who were GB fed at under 5 years of age (median age: 1.66(More)
