A honeycomb-like tubular array was observed in heavily myelinated axons. It was observed in the cerebellum of an apparently normal rat and a chimpanzee with “Kurulike” symptoms. It was also found in the cerebral cortex of a mouse that had had a intracerebral tumor implant. A common underlying etiology could not be found. It is suggested, however, that this(More)
Fiscal policy restrictions are often criticized for limiting the ability of governments to react to business cycle fluctuations. Therefore, the adoption of quantitative restrictions is viewed as inevitably leading to increased macroeconomic volatility. In this paper we use data from 48 U.S. states to investigate how budget rules affect fiscal policy(More)
We have investigated the factors which contribute to the host specificity of a tumor inducing plasmid of Agrobacterium, pTiAg162, which confers a narrow host range. Determinants both within the T-DNA and virulence regions contribute to host specificity. Within the T-DNA a defective cytokinin biosynthetic gene limits host range. Nucleotide sequence analysis(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, a biomarker panel was developed for use as an aid to major depressive disorder (MDD) diagnosis; it consisted of 9 biomarkers associated with the neurotrophic, metabolic, inflammatory, and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis pathways. This panel and associated algorithm produced good clinical sensitivity and specificity (92% and 81%,(More)
By training, the orthodontist is uniquely qualified to be the primary monitor of facial growth. He should assess the mode of respiration at approximately two years of age and confer with the pediatrician, allergist and otolaryngologist to institute appropriate medical management of any developing problems. He must educate his colleagues in medicine and(More)
In this postmortem, I find that the design, implementation, and maintenance of financial policies during the period from 1996 through 2006 were primary causes of the financial system's demise. The evidence is inconsistent with the view that the collapse of the financial system was caused only by the popping of the housing bubble (" accident ") and the(More)
Communication is vital in order to coordinate rescue and clean up efforts should an event eliminate the most common infrastructure, such a cell tower and phone lines, in a region. One of the most effective ways to set up an alternative communication system without relying on traditional methods would be to attach a temporary system to airships floating(More)
