A computer-aided method for the determination of colour fusion time (CFT) was developed. CFT indicates the acuity of the perception of monochromatic contours. CFT was determined in 36 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and compared with a group of 36 age- and sex-matched controls. Patients with PD generally had a shortened fusion time, especially for(More)
Levels of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) were measured in rat CSF following occlusion of the four major arteries to the brain for 10, 20, or 30 min. In the CSF of rats submitted to 30 min of total ischemia, an up to nine-fold increase of NSE level occurred within the first few hours and then slowly diminished. Significant levels were seen for as long as 8(More)
It is known that the discharges of the posterior red nucleus (RN) cells are modulated during locomation (Orlovsky, 1972). The aims of the present investigation were to look for a possible relationship between the unitary activity of RN cells and movements as well as postural reactions of the forelimbs. In the experimental arrangement used, the cat stood on(More)
The detection of neuron-specific enolase in biological fluids has been investigated as an indirect marker of neuronal damage in man. This protein was measured by a sandwich enzymoimmunoassay in serums and cerebrospinal fluids from patients with consciousness disorders of various aetiologies. Neuron-specific enolase level was significantly increased in sera(More)
Following cerebral ischemia a tendency to increased coagulation can be detected. Vascular occlusion may develop either as a result of local thrombus formation or from emboli caused by circulating platelet aggregates. We studied the localization of microthrombi and their effects on tissue in double-hemisphere sections. Fresh brain infarcts showed a large(More)
Island endemic species are of particular conservation concern as they exhibit a range of vulnerable traits that greatly increases their risk of extinction (McKinney 1997). The wideband anemonefish, Amphiprion latezonatus, is endemic to a range of 4° of latitude (Rushworth et al. 2011) in the subtropical waters off the Eastern Australian coast, with(More)
The presence of the neuron specific enolase (NSE) has been tested by sandwich enzyme immunoassay in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of rats after intrastriatal injection of various amounts of kainic acid (KA). Incremental release of NSE was observed in CSF for increasing concentrations of injected KA. Still, a significant decrease of NSE striatal content was(More)
Globally, marine species are under increasing pressure from human activities, including ocean warming, acidification, pollution, and overfishing. Species most vulnerable to these pressures tend to be ecological specialists that have low abundance and small distribution ranges (endemics). Marine endemics often exist as meta-populations distributed among few(More)
Neuron-specific enolase (NSE) levels were measured by sandwich enzymo-immunoassay as well as by enzymatic assay in rat cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), following mechanical lesions of the brain tissue. Significant increases of NSE were observed in CSF, with a peak 2 h following lesions located near the lateral ventricle. Values returned to normal around 48 h(More)
