Last-order interneurones, which were identified by antidromic invasion from the elbow extensor motor nuclei (triceps brachii), were examined for rhythmic activity during fictive locomotion. Last-order neurones with activity modulated were divided into 3 groups: one exhibited flexor-like activity, another extensor-like, and the third activity which had(More)
Activity of C5-C7 last-order interneurones, which were identified by antidromic invasion from the elbow flexor motor nuclei, was examined during fictive locomotion. Three groups of neurones were found: one showing no rhythmic modulation of activity (non-modulated neurones), another rhythmically active mainly in phase with the target motoneurones (modulated(More)
Some major and trace elements in seawaters and related river waters from the Osaka Bay area, Japan were analyzed in order to examine rare earth element (REE) behaviors, especially the relationship between anthropogenic gadolinium (Gd) and nutrient concentrations. The local silicic rock normalized REE patterns for the seawaters show features of light REE(More)
A new experimental method (evaporation method) for calcium carbonate precipitation in aqueous solution was attempted in order to develop a convenient and controllable experimental technique for obtaining precise trace element partition coefficients. Calcite crystals were formed by evaporation of H2O from the aqueous mother solution using a dehumidifier, and(More)
As an alternative to the phantom used for calibrating whole-body counters, in this study the Monte Carlo simulation was used to evaluate peak efficiencies for a whole-body counter installed at the JNC, to examine the validity of using the simulation technique to calibrate the whole-body counter. Prior to simulating a phantom, the sensitive region of the(More)
