A study was made of the fluorescence induction curves from gently-broken spinach chloroplasts inhibited with DCMU. It was found that there were four kinetically different phases associated with such curves of which only the fastest did not appear to follow exponential kinetics. A comparison of the effects of various concentrations of DCMU on the rate of(More)
Distributions of neurons located in the central rostral mesencephalon and caudal diencephalon that project to the upper cervical spinal cord, vestibular nuclei, or inferior olive were studied in the cat by using retrograde axonal transport of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP). Afferent sources to all of these targets were(More)
Intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS) was obtained from 3 areas of anteromedial cortex: the prelimbic area (Brodman's area 32), the anterior cingulate area and the posterior cingulate area. Electrical stimulation in the prelimbic and anterior cingulate areas also produces a behavioral inhibition which is most pronounced at anterior sites (i.e. prelimbic) and(More)
There are numerous discrepancies within the literature concerning the sources of spinovestibular fibers and their distribution in the vestibular complex. Sources of afferents from all spinal levels were sought using the retrograde transport of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase. Following injections of this tracer in all portions of(More)
In view of the recognized role of the superior colliculus (SC) in eye and head movement, and following recent physiological studies, the presence of afferents to the SC from the vestibular complex and adjacent cellular groups were sought using axonal transport techniques. Injections of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP)(More)

This study was designed to determine the effects of two teaching methods on children's ability to demonstrate and recall their mastery of proper lifting techniques. Seventy-six third and fifth grade public school children were divided by grade into three groups. Two of the groups (experimental) were taught the correct method for lifting a heavy object,(More)
This study presents a new Database-Enabled Design Model for High-Rise buildings driven by Pressure datasets, DEDM-HRP, which seamlessly combines synchronous pressure measurement databases with a rigorous computational framework to offer convenient estimation of wind load effects on high-rise buildings for their preliminary design. To respond to the need for(More)
The distribution of cells in the rostral medial mesencephalon and caudal diencephalon which project to the vestibular complex was mapped in the cat by using retrograde axonal transport of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP). Subsequent experiments using anterograde transport of WGA-HRP clarified the position of the(More)
Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA-L) immunohistochemistry was used to describe the corticofugal projections of the anteromedial cortex (AMC) of rats. PHA-L was injected iontophoretically into an area of the AMC which, when stimulated electrically, is known to induce contraversive head and body movements. It was found that the AMC innervates the(More)
