The hypothesis that the basal forebrain population of LHRH perikarya is composed of heterogeneous subgroups was examined in this study. We used three-dimensional computerized reconstruction to examine populations of LHRH-immunopositive neurons detected in noncolchicine treated cycling female rats. Perikarya were detected with two antisera capable of(More)
A research-oriented system for automated microscopy is described from an operational point of view. The system consists of a microscope, a TV camera, an automatic cell finder and a servo-driven computer controlled stage. The system is interfaced to a NOVA 840 computer having 112,000 words of 16-bit core memory and extensive peripherals. It is capable of(More)
The Women's Health Trial was initiated by the National Cancer Institute to study the effects of a low-fat diet on the incidence of breast cancer in women at elevated risk for the disease. The purpose of this article is to examine the specific dietary changes that 173 women made while participating in a feasibility intervention program to reduce their fat(More)
A computer image analysis system was applied to the quantitative study of chromosomal early- and late-replication patterns from the leukocytes of several normal human donors, and these patterns were compared with the chromosomal G-banding patterns. The first and last few hours of replication were discriminated by selective bromodeoxyuridine vs. thymidine(More)
This study compared use of unconventional remedies in two groups of HIV-positive men (N = 63). Employing a multiple-choice questionnaire, the authors assessed the use of and attitudes toward unconventional remedies among two groups of white HIV-positive men similar in age, socioeconomic status, and severity of illness, all of whom lived in Northern(More)
PURPOSE Experience with the University of Wisconsin's stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) accessory system was applied to build a new system, facilitate alignment of linac photon beams with a Brown-Roberts-Wells (BRW) stereotaxy, and increase the versatility and stability of the stereotaxy. METHODS AND MATERIALS High tensile strength stainless steel was used(More)
High-resolution image analysis has the potential to flag subtle changes in white blood cell morphology that may indicate the presence of certain diseases. A study was made of the feasibility of identifying patients with hematologic bacterial infections (sepsis) using measurements on Wright-Giemsa-stained peripheral blood smears. Neutrophils and lymphocytes(More)
