OBJECTIVE The efficacy of buspirone in controlling self-injurious behavior was examined in five individuals with mental retardation. Buspirone was used alone in two individuals and as an adjunct to thioridazine in the other three. METHOD Standard behavioral observation methods were used to collect data on the number of self-injurious responses of the(More)
Haloperidol (0.1 mg/kg, i.p.) treatment was given from day 12 to 20 of gestation to pregnant rats, this being the critical period for neural development in this species. The pups born were subjected to open-field exploratory behaviour, tunnel-board exploratory behaviour, elevated zero-maze and elevated plus maze behaviour tests at 7-8 weeks of age. The(More)
Dysfunction of the serotonergic system has been implicated in the development and maintenance of self-injury in some persons with mental retardation. Several preliminary reports have suggested that fluoxetine, a drug that blocks the reuptake of serotonin, may decrease self-injury in these individuals. Of the 44 cases of self-injury treated with fluoxetine(More)
Different groups of pregnant rats were treated with diazepam (10 mg/kg), phenobarbital (10 mg/kg), haloperidol (0.1 mg/kg), fluoxetine (10 mg/kg) and vehicle (normal saline) intraperitoneally once a day during gestation days 13 to 21. After birth these pups were culled to 8 pups/dam and foster-nursed by lactating mothers for 3 weeks and were reared in(More)
Diazepam (10 mg/kg, ip) treatment was given from day 13 to 20 of gestation to pregnant rats, this being the critical period for neural development in this species. The pups born were subjected to open-field exploratory behaviour, tunnel-board exploratory behaviour, elevated zero maze behaviour and social interaction tests at 8-9 weeks of age. The results(More)
Abstrtract :-Haze formation is the combination of airlight and attenuation. Attenuation decreases the contrast and airlight increases the whiteness in the scene. Atmospheric conditions created by floting particles such as fog and haze, severely degrade image quality. Removing haze from a single image of a weather-degraded scene found to be a difficult task(More)
Effect of defects on the melting profile of short heterogeneous DNA chains is calculated using the Peyrard-Bishop Hamiltonian. On-site potential on a defect site is represented by a potential that has only a short-range repulsion and a flat part without well of the Morse potential. Stacking energy between two neigbouring pairs involving a defect site is(More)
The histology of the larval and adult brain and changes in the former during pupal period is described. The bilobed larval brain consists of the three neuromeres- proto-, deuto-, and tritocerebrum. The protocerebrum has corpora pedunculata, ponscerebralis, parsintercerebralis, central body, corpora ventralia and three optic lobe anlagen. The lamina and(More)
This paper presents an investigation on incentive based demand response program (DRP) in deregulated power system environment. The major issues which are addressed in this paper, under demand response scenario are (i) demand curve flattening (ii) locational marginal pricing (LMP), and (iii) nodal voltage profile. The various issues mentioned above are(More)
