Publication bias, including prejudice against the null hypothesis, and other biasing filters may operate on researchers as well as journal editors and reviewers. A survey asked 33 psychology researchers to describe the fate ...
Effective spread and timecourse of neural inactivation caused by lidocaine injection in monkey cerebral cortex.
(J Neurosci Methods, 1997-06-06)
We studied the effective spread of lidocaine to inactivate neural tissue in the frontal cortex of the rhesus monkey. Injections of 2% lidocaine at 4 microl/min were made while units were recorded 1 or 2 mm away. To inactivate ...
