Life cycle adaptation to latitudinal and seasonal variation in photoperiod and temperature is a major determinant of evolutionary success in flowering plants. Whereas the life cycle of the dicotyledonous model species Arabidopsis thaliana is controlled by two epistatic genes, FLOWERING LOCUS C and FRIGIDA, three unrelated loci (VERNALIZATION) determine the(More)
Grip and pinch strength testing are commonly used to evaluate hand strength for disability ratings and to assess responses to various forms of therapy. This study determined the variations in grip and pinch strength in normal individuals. Ninety-five healthy subjects--61 women and 34 men--were examined prospectively by use of a Jamar dynamometer and a(More)
An experimental model has been developed to measure the effect of retrobulbar hematomas on functional vision in cynomolgus monkeys. In this model, functional vision was quantitated using flashed evoked visual potentials in five monkeys following creation of retrobulbar hematomas. In one monkey used as a control, functional vision remained impaired for 180(More)
