Gunshot injuries to the spine and spinal cord were covered adequately in the literature shortly after World War II. Similar injuries in the civilian population have been reported in the literature with regard to surgical and nonsurgical treatment. However, the two cases reported here concern intraspinally retained foreign bodies (one bullet and one glass(More)
The avian circadian and visual systems are integrally related and together influence many aspects of birds' behavior and physiology. Certainly, light cycles and their visual perception are the major zeitgebers for circadian rhythms, but do circadian rhythms affect vision? To assess whether visual function is regulated on a circadian basis, flash-evoked(More)
A cerebral collision tumor in which a convexity meningioma was invaded by a metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix uteri is described. This is the first time such a lesion has been reported to invade a cerebral meningioma. The patient lived three active years postoperatively until the lesion recurred. Her status then deteriorated, and she died(More)
Subluxation of the cervical spine either with or without neurologic involvement as a result of epileptic seizure is a rare occurrence. Most of the literature reviewed deals with compression fractures of the spine effected by metrazol-induced convulsions or electroshock therapy for major psychosis. Of further interest in this case is the presumptive(More)
All six isoforms of the microtubule-associated protein tau are present in hyperphosphorylated states in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). It is presently unclear how such hyperphosphorylation of tau is controlled. In a previous study (Singh et al. Arch Biochem Biophys 328: 43-50, 1996) we have shown that three-repeat taus containing two(More)
The nail-gun has been used in the construction industry world-wide. An increasing number of injuries to the cranium and other parts of the body has been reported due to its careless use or mishandling. Some of these are reviewed with emphasis on craniocerebral and spinal cord involvement. Two cases are reported here. Both of these patients survived and have(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the cross-links between stereocilia on guinea pig utricle hair cells. METHOD Twenty-four utricles from pigmented guinea pigs were examined using high resolution scanning (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). RESULT An extensive network of cross-links occurs between stereocilia of utricle hair cells. These links fall into(More)
