Hierarchical models of auditory processing often posit that optimal stimuli, i.e., those eliciting a maximal neural response, will increase in bandwidth and decrease in modulation rate as one ascends the auditory neuraxis. Here, we tested how bandwidth and modulation rate interact at several loci along the human central auditory pathway using functional MRI(More)
Although it has been proposed that neurons that contain both acetylcholine (ACh) and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are present in the prepositus hypoglossi nucleus (PHN), these neurons have not been characterized because of the difficulty in identifying them. In the present study, PHN neurons that express both choline acetyltransferase and the vesicular GABA(More)
In this paper we discuss a general methodology for estimating the distribution of individual growth rates in a size-structured population using aggregate population data. The method, for which rigorous theoretical formulations have been developed, is presented in the context of an inverse problem methodology and its use is illustrated with application to(More)
Three-port isolated (TPI) bidirectional DC/DC converters have three energy ports and offer advantages of large voltage gain, galvanic isolation ability and high power density. For this reason this kind of converters are suitable to connect different energy sources and loads in electric and hybrid vehicles. The purpose of this paper is to propose chaotic(More)
In this study, we developed a fluorescent immunoassay approach to detect paeoniflorin (PF) using a fluorescently labelled monoclonal antibody. The PF-specific antibody was purified by the caprylic acid-ammonium sulfate method and protein G Sepharose 4 Fast Flow column and then labelled with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC). The FITC-labelled monoclonal(More)
Cholinergic transmission in both the medial vestibular nucleus (MVN) and prepositus hypoglossi nucleus (PHN) plays an important role in horizontal eye movements. We previously demonstrated that the current responses mediated via nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) were larger than those mediated via muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) in(More)
