However, cases with severe malocclusion were treated by a Le Fort I and/or(More)
SINCLAIR, WILLIAM J. Initiation of rejlex swallowing from the nasoand oropharynx. Am. J. Physiol. 218(4) : 956-960. 1970.~In 15 electrolytically decerebrated cats, the pharynx was exposed surgically from the ventral aspect and divided in the midline. The pharynx was mechanically stimulated with light pressure using a wooden applicator 4 mm in diameter.(More)
SINCLAIR, k%J.JAM J. Role of the pharyngeal pbxus in initiation of swallowing. Am. J. Physiol. 221(5) : 1260-1263. 1971.-In preparation for stimulation studies, 22 cats were electrolytically decerebrated. The intact cephalic branch of the pharyngeal branch of the vagus nerve (Za) was electrically stimulated to determine its role in the initiation of the(More)
1. Studies have been made with solvent-extracted chicken muscle, bovine plasma albumin (BPA) and other proteins, all severely heated in the absence of carbohydrates so as to cause a large decrease in their fluorodinitrobenzene (FDNB)-reactive lysine contents. 2. epsilon-N-(beta-L-aspartyl)-L-lysine and epsilon-N-(gamma-L-glutamyl)-L-lysine isopeptides were(More)
This paper explores some of the difficulties, challenges and rewards for student nurses and nurse academics when harnessing social media (SoMe) as part of the overall learning experience. The paper draws upon data in the form of student voices, captured through an online planned Twitter chat. This data analysis provides the basis of a case study on the(More)

Remoxipride, a D2-dopamine receptor antagonist, is well tolerated and completely absorbed after oral administration. Because of its extremely bitter taste, an oral palatable suspension was developed by using a taste-masking microencapsulation. The bioavailability of remoxipride was investigated in two studies in healthy volunteers after administration of a(More)
