in other parts of the hippocampal formation (see below), Department of Physiology but here the term “place cell” is reserved for the principal SUNY cells of CA3 and CA1. Health Sciences Center at Brooklyn Functionally, place cells are characterized by locaBrooklyn, New York 11203 tion-specific firing. A given place cell is intensely active only when the(More)
The deletion plasmids, pRBH1 (1.5 MDa, kanamycin resistance, Kmr) and pUB110dB (1.5 MDa, Kmr), were obtained from pTB913 (2.9 MDa, Kmr, isolated from a thermophilic bacillus) and pUB110 (3.0 MDa, Kmr, from Staphylococcus aureus), respectively. All the nucleotide sequences of these deletion plasmids were determined. Replication origin regions of pRBH1 and(More)
The notion of developing resilience is becoming increasingly important as a way of responding to the social determinants of poor health, particularly in disadvantaged groups. It is hypothesized that resilient individuals and communities are able to 'bounce back' from the adversities they face. This paper explores the processes involved in building(More)
Why people smoke despite the health risks is an important public health question. Equally important is why and how some people resist smoking in spite of circumstances that clearly place them at high risk of becoming smokers. This study used in-depth interviews to explore the narratives of 12 people diagnosed with mental illness, who had made conscious(More)
This study explored stress in relation to smoking and how non-smokers (never-smoked and ex-smokers) are 'resilient' to smoking in a population where there is a high prevalence of smoking (people diagnosed with depression). In-depth oral history interviews were conducted with 34 adult participants from metropolitan Adelaide, and who were medically diagnosed(More)
This is the second in a series of three articles about the risk factors and complications related to chronic kidney disease and their impact on cardiovascular disease. This article focuses on identifying pathophysiologic mechanisms by which two traditional risk factors of cardiovascular disease (hypertension and dyslipidemia), and two nontraditional risk(More)
To ask if the properties of spatial learning supported by the hippocampus are distinct from the properties of conditioning, we conducted a blocking-like experiment in which the measured variable was not a conditioned response but rather the ability of a novel visual stimulus to control the location of place cell firing fields after being briefly combined(More)
We report the improved thermal stability of carbon alloyed Cu0.6Te0.4 for resistive memory applications. Copper-tellurium-based memory cells show enhanced switching behavior, but the complex sequence of phase transformations upon annealing is disadvantageous for integration in a device. We show that addition of about 40 at % carbon to the Cu-telluride layer(More)
We describe a two-frequency diffuse optical tomographic (DOT) imaging and EEG recording system suitable for the study of real-time hemodynamic and neural activities in freely moving rats. The system uses a bundle of 16 optical fibers that both deliver light and capture its reemission. This bundle runs in parallel with a cable carrying EEG signals from 16(More)
