Synaptic plasticity may depend not only on the afferent fibers but also on the recipient structure. The medial perforant path (MPP) from the entorhinalcortex projects to both the dentate gyrus (DG) and CA3, resulting in excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) in both areas. In this study, we showed that long-term depression (LTD) following low-frequency(More)
AIM To describe our own experience with pyogenic liver abscesses over the past 10 years and investigate the risk factors associated with failure of initial percutaneous therapy. METHODS A retrospective study of records of 63 PLA patients presenting between 1998 and 2008 to Australian tertiary referral centre, were reviewed. Amoebic and hydatid abscesses(More)
PURPOSE 1) To describe adolescents' responses to a client satisfaction and family-centered care survey; 2) to examine the relationship between satisfaction with health care and health-related quality of life (HRQL) among these adolescents; and 3) to determine if adolescents and their parents differ in their satisfaction with services. METHODS We recruited(More)
Patient satisfaction surveys are often used to measure quality of care. However, patient satisfaction may not be a reliable indicator of service quality because satisfaction can be influenced by clients’ characteristics such as their health status. Parents of children attending a pediatric neurology clinic completed the Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) and(More)
Spike timing-dependent plasticity in the hippocampus has rarely been studied in vivo. Using extracellular potential and current source density analysis in urethane-anesthetized adult rats, we studied synaptic plasticity at the basal dendritic excitatory synapse in CA1 after excitation-spike (ES) pairing; E was a weak basal dendritic excitation evoked by(More)
We consider the Generalised Normal Variance-Mean (GNVM) model in which the mixing random variable is Gamma distributed for financial return data. This model generalises the popular Variance-Gamma (VG) distribution. This GNVM model can be interpreted as the addition of noise to a (skew) VG base. In this presentation, we will not only discuss the parameter(More)
