Daily human energy requirements calculated from separate components of energy expenditure are inaccurate and usually in poor agreement with measured energy intakes. Measurement of energy expenditure over periods of 24 h or longer is needed to determine more accurately rates of daily energy expenditure in humans. We provide a detailed description of a human(More)
The fluid-percussion technique produces experimental brain injury by rapid injection of a fluid volume into the closed cranial cavity. The experiments reported here characterize a new, more controlled technique for fluid-percussion brain injury in the rat and systematically examine systemic physiologic, histopathologic, and electroencephalographic responses(More)
General categories of experimental brain injury models are reviewed regarding their clinical significance, and two new models are presented that use different methodology to produce injury. This report describes and characterizes the pathophysiologic changes produced by a novel fluid percussion (FP) method and a controlled cortical impact (CI) technique,(More)
Previously reported experimental models for spinal cord contusion injury do not allow the independent control of compression and contact velocity required for interpretation of experimental data relating kinematics of vertebral injury to spinal cord injury. Therefore, controlled dynamic compression of the spinal cord was used to study compression and(More)
Rate, depth, and duration of compression are the principal determinants of experimental spinal cord injury (SCI) severity. Since existing models do not allow independent control of these variables, the interaction of these factors has not been fully elucidated. The purpose of this study was to define the interactive relation of velocity (V) and compression(More)
The effect of endurance training on 24-h energy expenditure (EE), basal metabolic rate (BMR), sleeping metabolic rate (SMR), and the thermic effect of food (TEF) was assessed in a respiratory chamber where only spontaneous physical activity (SPA) was allowed. Results from 20 highly trained male endurance athletes (25 +/- 5 yr, 178 +/- 7 cm, 70 +/- 8 kg body(More)
A spectroreflectometer/transmissometer is described that permits determination of absolute optical characteristics in the 300-2600-nm wavelength region (which is essentially the complete solar spectrum). The uniqueness of the instrument derives from use of three rapidly interchangeable 20-cm (8-in.) integrating spheres to measure (1) absolute hemispherical(More)
A new class of insecticidal and antiparasitic agents, 4″-amino-4′-deoxy avermectins, has been developed by chemical modification of avermectin B1. The most effective of these compounds are 1500-fold more potent than avermectin B1 (abamectin) against the beet armywormSpodoptera exigua and show similar potency against other lepidopteran larvae.
Small field plots of Katahdin potatoes on Long Island, NY were treated 6 times in 1980 for control of Colorado potato beetle (CPB)Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae, using either the entomogenous fungusBeauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuill. (Bb) at 5x 1013 colony forming units/ha or fenvalerate at 0.227 kg active ingredient/ha. No(More)
The effect of ethanol on recovery of neural conduction after spinal cord compression was evaluated in an isolated rat spinal cord preparation. Controlled compression of 50 to 75 percent of the cord cross-section was delivered using a piezoelectric translator. Postcompression compound action potential (CAP) amplitude, latency, and refractory periods were(More)
