Conduction velocity, absolute refractory period, and subnormal conduction period measures of the right ulnar motor nerve were obtained during a simple reaction time task. 6 young, healthy, right-arm dominant male subjects were tested following 30 min. exposure in ambient (20 degrees C) and hot (36 degrees C) room air conditions. Motor and premotor(More)
Two studies examined perception of briefly presented (100-msec.) strings of letters. In Study One, 20 subjects were presented horizontal 5-letter strings in the left, central, and right visual fields. These were compared with 5-letter vertical strings presented centrally in the lower, central, and upper visual fields. Similar within-string patterns were(More)

A 32-year-old lady, blood group A negative, had an ultrasound examination at 11 weeks gestation showing a single viable fetus. Routine anomaly scanning at 21+3(More)
