We have reinvestigated receptive-field structure of ganglion cells of the macaque parafovea using counterphase modulation of a bipartite field. Receptive fields were mapped with luminance, chromatic, and cone-isolating stimuli. Center sizes of middle (M) and long (L) wavelength cone opponent cells of the parvocellular (PC) pathway were consistent with(More)
New-world primates such as the marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) show polymorphism for the middle- to long-wavelength sensitive cone pigments. Each X-chromosome carries a gene for only one of three possible pigments. All males are thus dichromats, but some females will be trichromats. We have investigated the responses of cells of the parvocellular (PC) and(More)
The temporal response of cone inputs to macaque retinal ganglion cells were compared with cone-specific sinusoidal modulation used to isolate each cone type. For all cell types of the parvocellular (PC) pathway, temporal responsivity was similar for short (S)-, middle (M)-, and long (L)-wavelength-sensitive cone inputs, apart from small latency differences(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effectiveness of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) with particular reference to morbidity. DESIGN Open study. SETTING Two city general hospitals. SUBJECTS 104 Adults and 11 children with end stage renal failure. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Morbidity. RESULTS There were 29 complications (25%), the most common being(More)
Technical measurements of the Sony Multiscan 17se were made and are reported in the belief that they would be useful to visual scientists who consider employing this device as a display unit. Luminance, spatial uniformity, luminance additivity between the output of the guns, CIE1931 chromaticity coordinates, and gamma correction parameters were measured.(More)
In a series of 584 patients undergoing coronary bypass, 425 patients received Y-grafts, sequential grafts, or a combination of the two. The saphenous veins from the legs frequently had Y- or double Y-branches suitable for bypasses. As many as 5 grafts have been served satisfactorily by a single proximal anastomosis. Simultaneous procedures included 45 left(More)
