Parasympathetic vasodilatation in the rat submandibular gland is mediated by nitric oxide-dependent and -independent mechanisms (prostacyclin and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF)). The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of gender on the relative contributions of each pathway to nerve-stimulated vasodilatation. Absolute(More)
Although ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) has been shown to promote the survival of magnocellular neurons when applied exogenously to explants of the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei (SON) in vitro, little is known regarding its expression or regulation in the adult magnocellular neurosecretory system (MNS) following injury in vivo. Therefore, we(More)
Lane change is a very demanding maneuver. Therefore, a maneuver-based lane change assistance system has been developed which, by means of a single-task-combining assistance concept, supports the driver from the driver's first lane change intention through the final movement of the vehicle from the initial to the target lane, without automatization of the(More)
Research on computer vision systems for driver assistance resulted in a variety of isolated approaches mainly performing very specialized tasks like, e. g., lane keeping or traffic sign detection. However, for a full understanding of generic traffic situations, integrated and flexible approaches are needed. We here present a highly integrated vision(More)
