Response properties of neurons in the monkey's granular insula (Ig) were examined with somatic, auditory, visual, and gustatory stimuli. Results indicate that a major portion of Ig is a somatic processing area exclusively, with units that have large and often bilateral receptive fields, consistent with the view that this area serves as a higher-order,(More)
We report the seventh case of a self-limiting syndrome of brain, inner ear and retinal microangiopathy which affects adult women producing mild to moderate mental status and personality changes, mild pyramidal and cerebellar dysfunction, patchy and asymmetrical visual loss secondary to non-inflammatory retinal infarctions, and asymmetrical neurosensory(More)
A family had a dominantly inherited amyloid angiopathy that involved the meninges of the brain and spinal cord, retina, vitreous humor, peripheral nerves, and systemic organs. Clinical features included hemiplegic migraine, periodic obtundation, psychosis, seizures, intracerebral hemorrhage, myelopathy, visual impairment, deafness, and peripheral(More)
A 45-year-old man had bilateral complete ptosis attributed to damage to the central caudal nucleus in the nuclear complex of the third cranial nerve, the other subnuclei being spared. Many discrete inflammatory foci were found in the midbrain and brainstem, a picture resembling that seen in subacute encephalitis. The findings are related to Warwick's(More)
Ethynylestradiol (EE2) is one of the most potent endocrine disrupting compounds capable to induce estrogenic effects even at trace level concentrations in the aquatic environment. Methods for detecting EE2 in such concentrations are generally based on GC or HPLC coupled to at least one mass spectrometer. Another approach are immunoassays and sensor systems(More)
This study investigated the possibility that a vibratory stimulus could discriminate the effect of relatively low pressures on nerve function in an acute compartmental syndrome in a primate model. The first phase of the study utilized somatosensory-evoked potentials to determine the outcome of varying pressures in an acute carpal tunnel syndrome in the(More)
A surface-labeled lyophilized lymphocyte (sLL) preparation has been developed using human peripheral blood mononuclear cells prelabeled with a fluorescein isothiocyanate conjugated anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody. The sLL preparation is intended to be used as a reference material for CD4+ cell counting including the development of higher order reference(More)
A competitive ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitation of carbamazepine (CBZ) was developed and validated. A limit of quantitation (LOQ) of ca. 30 ng/L allowed for the quantitation of CBZ in many samples from wastewater, surface water and drinking water. The method was found to be excellently precise, but it displayed slightly higher(More)
Metal microelectrodes were used to record extracellular potentials from single cells in the four cytoarchitectural areas 3a, 3b, 1 and 2 of the representation of the lower body of the postcentral gyrus of Macaca mulatta monkeys. The animals were paralyzed and artificially respirated while remaining awake. Non-noxious natural stimuli were employed to(More)
