The precentral extension of area 3 as well as the transition between the frontal operculum and insula (area G) comprises the primary gustatory cortex in the subhuman primate, receiving projections from the thalamic taste relay. However, in contrast to the extensive studies that have been carried out on the latter area, only a few taste units in the former(More)
The effects of mechanical ventilation (MV) on the surfactant system and cytokine secretion were studied in isolated septic rat lungs. At 23 h after sham surgery or induction of sepsis by cecal ligation and perforation (CLP), lungs were excised and randomized to one of three groups: 1) a nonventilated group, 2) a group subjected to 1 h of noninjurious MV(More)
The correlation between different gustatory areas in the frontal operculum, orbitofrontal area, and insula and the representation of different aspects of cues during a salt-water discrimination delayed GO/NOGO task was studied in a Japanese monkey. Four groups were identified among 169 neurons responding to cues before/after task reversal. Group I (n=78)(More)
