Effects of ammonium perchlorate on thyroid function in developing fathead minnows, Pimephales promelas.
Perchlorate is a known environmental contaminant, largely due to widespread military use as a propellant. Perchlorate acts pharmacologically as a competitive inhibitor of thyroidal iodide uptake in mammals, but the impacts ...
Quantifying drug-induced dyskinesias in the arms using digitised spiral-drawing tasks.
In this study, we quantify the severity of drug-induced dyskinesias in the arms of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients using digitised spiral-drawing tasks. Two spiral drawings, namely a circular and a square spiral, are ...
Histopathological changes in the human larynx following expanded polytetrafluroethylene (Gore-Tex(R)) implantation.
BACKGROUND: Expanded polytetrafluroethelyne (e PTFE, Gore-Tex(R)) has been advocated as an implant material for medialization of the vocal fold. Animal studies involving rabbits and a porcine model have demonstrated host ...
The correlation grid: analysis of synchronous spiking in multi-dimensional spike train data and identification of feasible connection architectures.
This paper presents a visualization technique specifically designed to support the analysis of synchronous firings in multiple, simultaneously recorded, spike trains. This technique, called the correlation grid, enables ...
Generation of secondary internal waves by the interaction of an internal solitary wave with an underwater bank
The generation of secondary internal waves by the interaction of a large-amplitude internal solitary wave with the Dreadnought Bank in the Andaman Sea (6°40′N, 95° 47′E) is shown by analyzing a synthetic aperture radar ...
