The rise of the computer and the increasing importance of intellectual assets have compelled executives to examine the knowledge underlying their businesses and how it is used. Because knowledge management as a conscious practice is so young, however, executives have lacked models to use as guides. To help fill that gap, the authors recently studied(More)
To investigate the ability of developing cochlear nucleus (CN) neurons to survive in the absence of afferent input, left cochlear removals were performed on gerbils at 2 day intervals from postnatal (P)3 to P11, and at P18 and P93. After a 3 month postsurgical survival period, Nissl-stained frontal sections through the brainstem were analyzed under the(More)
The localization of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) in the gerbil auditory brainstem was studied during normal postnatal development. The principal objective of this paper was to compare the developmental distribution of BDNF and NT-3 proteins to the known developmental distribution of their cognate, high-affinity tyrosine(More)
Postnatal development of the gerbil ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN) was studied quantitatively under the light microscope in Nissl-stained serial sections at postnatal day 0 (P0), P5, P7, P10, P12, P15, and P140. VCN boundaries were unambiguous at all ages, and nucleus volume was calculated planimetrically for all groups. Measurements of neuron soma(More)
1. The primary focus of psychiatric rehabilitation is on improving the competencies of persons with psychiatric disabilities. 2. Both patients and staff must change their ideas about themselves and each other before the work of rehabilitation could move forward. 3. Institutional rigidity works against psychiatric rehabilitation, with its value on individual(More)
