We consider the psychological and neurological mechanisms involved in timed behaviors, motor or perceptual tasks that emphasize the temporal relationship between successive events. Two general models for representing temporal information are described. In one model, temporal information is based on the oscillatory activity of an endogenous pacemaker; in the(More)
Wood formation was investigated at five heights along the bole for two unrelated trees of Pinus radiata. Both trees showed clear gradients in wood properties from the base to the crown. Cambial cells at the base of the tree were dividing 3.3-fold slower than those at the crown, while the average thickness of cell walls in wood was highest at the base. Cell(More)
Four experiments compared the temporal stability of actions involving either one or more effectors. A reduction in within-effector temporal variability was observed during two-effector tapping compared to when either moved alone. This phenomenon was observed for various limb combinations, regardless of whether the two effectors were on the same or different(More)
Sixty-five primary malignant skin tumours have been stained for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) using rabbit polyclonal affinity-purified antibodies and an indirect immunoperoxidase technique. The tumours consisted of 15 invasive squamous carcinomas, 23 basal cell carcinomas, 16 malignant eccrine poromas(More)
Many amphibian species, in widely scattered locations, currently show population declines and/or reductions in range, but other amphibian species show no such declines. There is no known single cause for these declines. Differential sensitivity to UVB radiation among species might be one contributing factor. We have focused on amphibian eggs, potentially(More)
Two polyclonal rabbit antibodies to epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), two mouse monoclonal antibodies (E29 and HMFG-2), and a "cocktail" of these two monoclonals have been compared using an indirect immunoperoxidase technique. Sections from 25 tissues (17 malignant and 8 benign), were examined. The distribution of staining with each of these reagents was(More)
Two monoclonal murine antibodies have been raised against a delipidated extract of human cream. These antibodies were detected by immunohistological screening of hybridoma culture supernatants on sections of human breast tissue. One of those antibodies (E29) was subsequently screened against a range of normal and neoplastic human tissues and shown to react(More)
The immunoperoxidase localization of the alpha and beta subunits of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and of human placental lactogen (hPL) was studied in ten extragonadal nontrophoblastic tumors associated with raised serum levels of one or more of these placental proteins. Three of the tumors were bronchial carcinomas, one was a gastric carcinoma, two(More)
A reliable method for radioiodinating antibodies is described. The reaction is initiated by the addition of a fine suspension in buffer of iodogen particles formed in a novel way. The addition of an acetone solution of Iodogen to phosphate-buffered saline yields a uniform suspension of 3.0 micron diameter particles. This preparation has been used to label(More)
Cytoplasmic granules in fibroblasts, visualized without stains, or labelled with Nile red, Filipin, or anti-LAMP-1 (lysosome-associated membrane protein 1), were imaged using the real-time microscope (RTM). New advances in light microscope technology were applied to detect cytoplasmic granules (RTM-visible granules) and characterize them by imaging(More)
