To study the blood-brain barrier in vitro pure cerebral endothelial cell cultures, without contaminating cells have to be obtained. Most other cell types besides endothelial cells can be pericytes, a few astrocytes, some smooth muscle cells, fibroblasts and meningeal cells. Careful removal of large vessels and meninges during the dissection and the optimal(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of subjective and objective probe questions in predicting situation awareness as measured by the Situation Awareness Rating Technique (SART). The data for this evaluation were taken from a previous investigation in which instrumentrated pilots flew automated ILS approaches into the(More)
For monolinguals, the Simon effect is eliminated when Simon task trials are intermixed with ones in which participants respond to the words left and right with incompatibly mapped keypresses. For bilingual Dutch/French speakers, this result has been shown to occur when the words are in Dutch (their first and primary language), but not when they are in(More)
We report on two sibs with partial dup (7q), a retarded 9-month-old boy and an aborted fetus of 17 weeks' gestational age. Besides minor anomalies, the boy had frontal bossing, macrocephaly with hydrocephaly, a high forehead, and a large fontanelle. GTG banded chromosomes showed a 14p+ abnormality. Because his mother carries a balanced, de novo(More)
A procedure is presented for exact, detailed comparison of light and electron microscopic analyses of tissues with complex architecture. Earlier techniques require one to make drawings of tissue pieces to be analyzed by electron microscopy to permit rough localization of the origin of the tissue pieces. Specifically, exact analysis of fetal cartilage and(More)
