— In this paper we present objectives and strategies of the NAVELEC research project funded by the European Union Galileo Joint Undertaking (GJU/05/2423). The project objective is to assess how the European Global Navigation Satellite System related solutions can enhance the operation and control of the European power system over wide areas. Some basic… (More)
BACKGROUND Motoneurons in the spinal cord are especially vulnerable to ischemic injury and selectively destroyed after transient ischemia. Nitric oxide (NO) has been implicated in both neurodegneration and neuroprotection to ischemic insult. To evaluate the role of NO in pathophysiology to spinal cord ischemia, the expression of neuronal and inducible… (More)
Process monitoring has to consider the problem of measurement uncertainty.A model based approach (data validation) is compared to data driven techniques for an industrial application..
Animal anaesthesia is a wide and varied subject considering the great number of available animal models, each having its characteristic tolerance and reaction to anaesthesia and its behavioural peculiarity. It is more often than not that experimental researchers tend to give scant attention to animal anaesthesia in the preparation of a research protocol as… (More)
OBJECTIVE The ultrastructural changes in the bladder afferent neurons were examined in the guinea pig following acute complete urethral obstruction. MATERIAL AND METHODS Complete urethral ligation was carried out in nine guinea pigs under anaesthesia and the animals were sacrificed at 12, 24 and 48 h postoperatively. Three sham-operated animals were… (More)
This study examined the distribution of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase (NADPH-d) reactivity and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) immunoreactivity in the lumbosacral dorsal root ganglia (DRG) in male guinea pigs. A differential distribution of NADPH-d reactivity and NOS immunoreactivity was detected in neurons of DRG at different… (More)
