Although blindness alters neocortical processing of non-visual tasks, previous studies do not allow clear conclusions about purely perceptual tasks. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the neural processing underlying tactile microspatial discrimination in the blind. Activity during the tactile microspatial task was contrasted(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether in vitro expanded CD4(+)CD25(+)Foxp3(+) regulatory T cells can suppress immune-mediated ocular surface inflammation in a mouse model of dry eye. METHODS C57BL/6 or BALB/c mice were exposed to a dry, desiccating environment produced by maintaining low humidity (<40%), injections of scopolamine, and air flow produced by a fan.(More)
Sixteen calves approximately 6 months old were each infected with 500 metacercariae of Fasciola hepatica. Thirty-two days later they were weighed and divided into two groups, and on day 35 all calves in one of the groups were injected subcutaneously with an ivermectin/closantel combination. Both groups were sacrificed between days 70 and 72 to enable(More)
The function of suppression of context-inappropriate meanings during lexical ambiguity resolution was examined in 25 adults with prefrontal cortex damage (PFCD) localized to the left (N=8), right (N=6), or bilaterally (N=11); and 21 matched Controls. Results revealed unexpected inverse patterns of suppression between PFCD and Control groups, with measures(More)
