Marr's proposal for the functioning of the neocortex (Marr, 1970) is the least known of his various theories for specific neural circuitries. He suggested that the neocortex learns by self-organization to extract the structure from the patterns of activity incident upon it. He proposed a feedforward neural network in which the connections to the output(More)
A number of reliable techniques have been described that can parcellate temporal neo-cortex from MRI images to preserve topographical characteristics of individual brains, but these tend to use in-house software. We describe here an adaptation of the methods previously described by Kim et al. [Kim, J.J., Crespo-Facorro, B., Andreasen, N.C., O'Leary, D.S.,(More)
1. The contribution of Li+ reabsorption in the loop of Henle to lithium clearance (CLi) and the possible mechanism(s) involved were assessed in healthy volunteers. Four mechanisms were considered: (a) passive reabsorption in the thin ascending limb, (b) solvent drag in the thin descending limb, (c) the Na+, K+, 2Cl- transporter in the thick ascending limb(More)
