Fetal rat brain cell suspensions prepared from either the locus coeruleus region or hippocampus were implanted bilaterally into the subcortically denervated seizure-prone hippocampus of adult rats. Animals with locus coeruleus grafts were protected against picrotoxin-induced behavioral seizures and had significantly fewer interictal spikes. In contrast, in(More)
Two potent and highly selective nonpeptide antagonists, L-365,031 [1-methyl-3-(4-bromobenzoyl)amino-5-phenyl-3H-1,4 benzodiazepin-2-one] and 3H-L-364,718 [1-methyl-3-(2-indoloyl)amino-5-phenyl-3H-1,4 benzodiazepin-2-one] were used to localize "peripheral" CCK receptors in rat brain. In autoradiographic experiments, L-365,031 displaced 125I-Bolton Hunter(More)

Barium strontium titanate thin films are being developed as capacitors in dynamic random access memories. These films, grown on silicon substrates, are under tensile residual stress. By a converse electrostrictive effect, the in-plane tensile stress reduces the capacitance in the thickness direction of the film. We measured the substrate curvature change(More)
Although recent studies demonstrate that tobacco cigarette smoke substantially inhibits both central nervous system and blood platelet monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity, little is known about the time course of MAO increases after smoking cessation. Therefore, changes in platelet MAO-B activity and mood were assessed before and at multiple times after(More)
In vitro autoradiography was performed in order to visualize cholecystokinin-A (CCK-A) receptors in sections of Cynomolgus monkey brain. CCK-A receptors were defined as those which displayed high affinity for the selective non-peptide antagonist MK-329 (L-364,718) and were detected in several regions by selective inhibition of 125I-Bolton Hunter CCK using(More)
A comparison of cholecystokinin (CCK) receptor binding to sections of rat, mouse and guinea pig brain has been performed using 125I-Bolton Hunter CCK and the selective peripheral CCK receptor antagonist L-365,031. In both rat and mouse, 125I-Bolton Hunter CCK binding in the region of the interpeduncular nucleus (IPN) was inhibited by L-365,031 indicating(More)

Ultra low-k (ULK, k=2.4) dielectric has weaker mechanical properties than first generation low-k films (k=3.0). The introduction of ULK into advanced back end of lines (BEOL) presents a significant challenge due to chip package interaction (CPI) where the packaged die is cycled over a temperature range and the resulting stress can cause ULK BEOL(More)
Cholecystokinin (CCK) receptor binding was measured in sections of human, monkey and rat spinal cord using autoradiographical techniques. In each species, high levels of specific 125I-Bolton-Hunter CCK binding were detected in the superficial layers of the dorsal horn (the substantia gelatinosa). In monkey and human but not rat spinal cord, 125I-CCK binding(More)
Universal relaxation with, values of n close to 1, has been observed in thin film barium strontium titanate (BST) from 1 mHz to 20 GHz [1]. Although it is not an intrinsic loss mechanism, it is generally dominant at frequencies below 100 GHz [2]. In addition to BST, we have also observed this behavior in strontium titanate and bismuth zinc niobate. Because(More)
A combination of chemical vapor deposition and scanning tunneling microscopy techniques have been used to produce nanometer-scale, iron-containing deposits with high aspect ratios from an iron pentacarbonyl precursor both on a substrate and on the tunneling tip itself. The structure and composition of the resulting nanodeposits were determined by(More)
