Concerns regarding marine plastic pollution and its affinity for chemical pollutants led us to quantify relationships between different types of mass-produced plastic and organic contaminants in an urban bay. At five locations in San Diego Bay, CA, we measured sorption of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)(More)
The brain stem auditory evoked response (BAER) was monitored intraoperatively in 11 patients with tumors of the posterior fossa. A technique for the objective quantitative assessment of the BAER based on the variance of the phase angle between small group averages is described. The resulting component synchrony measure corroborated standard peak latency and(More)
An ensemble of 10 groups of brain stem evoked responses (BAERs), each consisting of 200 sweeps, was collected for different intensity levels and for a no-stimulus condition. A fast Fourier transform was calculated for the separate groups, which permitted a phase variance to be derived. The phase variance was compared to the magnitude value for selected(More)
