A screw microdrive for adjustable chronic unit recording in monkeys.
(J Neurosci Methods, 1998-06-01)
A screw microdrive is described that attaches to the grid system used for recording single neurons from brains of awake behaving monkeys. Multiple screwdrives can be mounted on a grid over a single cranial opening. This ...
Memory and learning for a novel written style.
(Mem Cognit, 1998-07)
Subjects read and recalled a series of five short stories in one of four plot and style combinations. The stories were written in one of two styles that consisted of opposing clause orders (i.e., independent-dependent vs. ...
For whom the bird sings: context-dependent gene expression.
Male zebra finches display two song behaviors: directed and undirected singing. The two differ little in the vocalizations produced but greatly in how song is delivered. "Directed" song is usually accompanied by a courtship ...
Visual memory-deficit amnesia: a distinct amnesic presentation and etiology.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1998-04-28)
We describe a form of amnesia, which we have called visual memory-deficit amnesia, that is caused by damage to areas of the visual system that store visual information. Because it is caused by a deficit in access to stored ...
Classification and genetic characterization of pattern-forming Bacilli.
(Mol Microbiol, 1998-02)
One of the more natural but less commonly studied forms of colonial bacterial growth is pattern formation. This type of growth is characterized by bacterial populations behaving in an organized manner to generate readily ...
Toxicity to neuroblastoma cells and spheroids of benzylguanidine conjugated to radionuclides with short-range emissions.
(Br J Cancer, 1998-06)
Radiolabelled meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) is selectively taken up by tumours of neuroendocrine origin, where its cellular localization is believed to be cytoplasmic. The radiopharmaceutical [131I]MIBG is now widely used ...
The objective function of simulation estimators near the boundary of the unstable region of the parameter space
(Review of Economics and Statistics, 1998)
The paper examines the role of stability constraints in estimation by dynamic simulation. In particular, it analyzes the behavior of the objective function on either side of the boundary of the stability region of the parameter ...
Memory and learning for a novel style
(Memory & Cognition, 1998)
Superexogeneity and the dynamic linkages among international equity markets
(Journal of International Money and Finance, 1998-06-01)
In this article, we combine the Johansen procedure for cointegration testing with tests of weak exogeneity and invariance in order to ascertain whether a system of equity markets is characterized by superexogeneity. ...
Things learned in early adulthood are remembered best.
(Mem Cognit, 1998-01)
Evidence is reviewed that for older adults the period from 10 to 30 years of age produces recall of the most autobiographical memories, the most vivid memories, and the most important memories. It is the period from which ...
