(1) Subarachnoid hemorrhage, when diagnosed, was generally based on firmer gounds.
(2) Ratings of the degree of eye and head following were made as subjects pursued facial targets which varied in terms of the degree fo figure-gound contrast and te degree of contrast internal to the figure as defined by the presence of contrast such that the strongest pursuit occurred to stimuli which had clearly discriminable facial detailing in addition to strong figure-ground contrast.
(3) That provides gounds to admit that hyperprolactinemia plays no essential role as an additional diabetogenic factor in the patients with diabetes mellitus.
(4) A feeding trial was conducted on a total of 96 pigs to investigate the effect of lysine supplements added to rations of wheat+extracted soya bean meal and rations of wheat+extracted gound nut meal.
(5) This approach facilitates the conceptualization of a complex psychiatric illness and makes it more appealing to primary care physicians by demonstrating common gound between medicine and psychiatry.
(6) The bile salt media is shown to increase the sensitivity and dynamic range of fluorescence measurements relative to simple ethanolic solutions, without promoting gound-state and excited-state interactions that occur in the detergent micellar media.
(7) Dried gound potato sprout preparations from seven varieties produced congenital deformities in one strain of hamsters.
(8) R. orientalis can persist subclinically for a certain period in the spleen and liver of chickens placed on the gound endemic of scrub typhus.
(9) The feeding of finely gound straw produced a higher level of FFS production (by 10%) than that of straw pellets.
(10) This pattern of results parallels that found in patients suffering from Hungtington's chorea, thus strengthening the parallels between the kainic acid animal model and the human disease state initially suggested on biochemical gounds.
() imp. of Sleep. Slept.
(v. i.) To take rest by a suspension of the voluntary exercise of the powers of the body and mind, and an apathy of the organs of sense; to slumber.
(v. i.) To be careless, inattentive, or uncouncerned; not to be vigilant; to live thoughtlessly.
(v. i.) To be dead; to lie in the grave.
(v. i.) To be, or appear to be, in repose; to be quiet; to be unemployed, unused, or unagitated; to rest; to lie dormant; as, a question sleeps for the present; the law sleeps.
(v. t.) To be slumbering in; -- followed by a cognate object; as, to sleep a dreamless sleep.
(v. t.) To give sleep to; to furnish with accomodations for sleeping; to lodge.
(v. i.) A natural and healthy, but temporary and periodical, suspension of the functions of the organs of sense, as well as of those of the voluntary and rational soul; that state of the animal in which there is a lessened acuteness of sensory perception, a confusion of ideas, and a loss of mental control, followed by a more or less unconscious state.
(1) AEDs may also have differential effects on nighttime sleep.
(2) It is supposed that delta-sleep peptide along with other oligopeptides is one of the factors determining individual animal resistance to emotional stress, which is supported by significant delta-sleep peptide increase in hypothalamus in stable rats.
(3) For assessment of clinical status, investigators must rely on the use of standardized instruments for patient self-reporting of fatigue, mood disturbance, functional status, sleep disorder, global well-being, and pain.
(4) We investigated whether these peptides also affect the sleep EEG in humans when given intravenously by comparing polysomnographically the effects of four boluses of (1) placebo, (2) 50 micrograms GHRH or (3) 50 micrograms SRIF administered at 22.00, 23.00, 24.00 and 1.00 h to 7 male controls.
(5) Polygraphic recordings during sleep were performed on 18 elderly persons (age range: 64-100 years).
(6) This was carried out on the healthy subjects for a total of 12 nights without medication (control nights asleep), a total of 12 nights following 40 mg of flucortolone the previous morning, and a total of 6 nights with similar blood sampling when sleep was prevented (control nights awake).
(7) Although temazepam was effective for maintaining sleep with short-term use, there was rapid development of tolerance for this effect with intermediate-term use.
(8) The occurrence of episodes of desaturation during sleep in patients suffering from chronic airflow obstruction is well known.
(9) A lower than normal percentage of REM sleep in these patients was consistent with their retarded intellectual development, which supports current thinking that REM sleep may be a sensitive index of brain function integrity.
(10) Amine metabolites, 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5HIAA), and homovanillic acid (HVA) were not substantially affected by sleep deprivation, although there was a significant interaction of clinical response and direction of 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG) change.
(11) Results of sleep sampling under electroencephalographic control of the assessment of GH secretion are comparable to conventional pharmacological studies in terms of efficiency, sensitivity, and percentage false-negatives.
(12) Sleep was defined behaviorally as failure to respond to the faint auditory RT cue.
(13) We have evaluated the action of hypnotics on the sleep-wakefulness cycle in freely implanted rats during their maximally active period because it is easier to estimate the duration of the sedative effect.
(14) However, patients can be taught how to retard the onset of wrinkles by avoiding unprotected sun exposure, unnecessary facial movements, and certain sleeping positions.
(15) The analogy with infant sleep patterns and results of studies of brain function in narcoleptics suggest that forebrain inhibitory processes are more important in narcoleptic symptomology than is brainstem dysfunction.
(16) In short term clinical studies, the beneficial effects of transdermal estradiol on plasma gonadotrophins, maturation of the vaginal epithelium, metabolic parameters of bone resorption and menopausal symptoms (hot flushes, sleep disturbance, genitourinary discomfort and mood alteration) appear to be comparable to those of oral and subcutaneous estrogens, while the undesirable effects of oral estrogens on hepatic metabolism are avoided.
(17) Sleep alterations in addicted newborns could be related to central nervous system (CNS) distress caused by withdrawal.
(18) "Our black, Muslim and Jewish citizens will sleep much less easily now the BBC has legitimised the BNP by treating its racist poison as the views of just another mainstream political party when it is so uniquely evil and dangerous."
(19) Stage REM frequently appeared within 10 min of stage 1 onset and the normal sequence of stages REM and 4 were altered, demonstrating that the organization of sleep within a nap is quite different from that in monophasic nocturnal sleep.
(20) This result is discussed in terms of either a function of time-of-day effect or of prior sleep intensity.
