OBJECTIVE To investigate age-related changes in speech perception by measuring event-related potentials (ERPs) elicited by auditory stimuli varying in their linguistic characteristics from pure tones to words. METHODS ERPs were recorded from 64 subjects in three age groups (young, middle age and elderly) to auditory target stimuli, using an oddball(More)
Intracranial pressure (ICP) was monitored to evaluate the therapeutic effect of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO(2)) treatment following traumatic brain injury (TBI). This subject is controversial. The aim of our study was to determine whether HBO(2) treatment has a therapeutic effect on ICP dynamics and survival following severe fluid percussion brain injury (FPBI)(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is known to be accompanied by an increase in intracranial pressure (ICP) and in some cases, by spontaneous generation of cortical spreading depression (CSD) cycles. However, the role of CSD in the pathophysiology of cerebral contusion is still unknown. A multiparametric monitoring assembly was placed on the right hemisphere of(More)
Event related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 20 young subjects to auditory target stimuli while they were performing three different tasks, using an oddball paradigm: 1. Tones: Subjects were instructed to respond to a 1 kHz tone, and ignore a 2 kHz tone; 2. Phonological: Subjects were instructed to respond only to pseudowords that had a specific(More)
The aim of this study was to determine under what hydrodynamic conditions the change in the number of enteric bacteria in the water of the River Jordan--Lake Kinneret contact zone was due to sedimentation and under what conditions the change was due to dilution. The data were then utilized to build a conceptual model explaining the distribution of(More)
The northern Gulf of Aqaba is an oligotrophic water body hosting valuable coral reefs. In the Gulf, phytoplankton dynamics are driven by an annual cycle of stratification and mixing. Superimposed on that fairly regular pattern was the establishment of a shallow-water fish-farm initiative that increased gradually until its activity was terminated in June(More)
