(a.) Deficient in color; pale; wan; as, a pallid countenance; pallid blue.
(1) In order to examine the role of the basal ganglia (BG) in the regulation of basic movement parameters, we recorded extracellularly from pallidal neurons in conscious monkeys during the performance of a sequential wrist movement task which was composed of a series of holds and ballistic jumps.
(2) The tasks were designed to dissociate several modes and parameters of movement to see whether pallidal neurons would discharge in relation to one and not the others.
(3) A related growth factor, epidermal growth factor (EGF), has also been reported to be present in pallidal regions of rat brain.
(4) It is concluded that, of the compounds identified, solstitialin A 13-acetate and cynaropicrin have toxic potential in cell cultures, containing cells from the substantia nigra of the rat, the specificity of action to cells of the substantia nigra remains to be shown, and that a toxic action in the midbrain may contribute to the nigro-pallidal encephalomalacia, caused by the ingestion of the yellow star thistle by horses.
(5) This response pattern was present in 39% of the pallidal records, and appeared to be elicited by the auditory components of the CS and US.
(6) SITS was chosen for the pallidal injections because it is not taken up by fibers-of-passage.
(7) The proposed changes in nomenclature are based on the analysis of topographical relationships between nigral, pallidal, and cerebellar projections to the thalamus studied in 13 rhesus monkeys with the use of autoradiography technique.
(8) However, these two pallidal afferents arborize according to a different pattern in GPe and GPi.
(9) The first excitation was assumed to be monosynaptically driven since it was not affected by pallidal lesion or transsection of the internal capsule.
(10) He came within 10 minutes of passing much of that burden on to José Mourinho, whose Chelsea side once again looked pallid and likely to slump to a fourth league defeat, before a remarkable late recovery left the home side hanging on just to earn a point.
(11) In the human ventral nuclear complex there is a very clear histochemical distinction between nuclei which, on the basis of comparison with the monkey, probably form the pallidal, cerebellar and lemniscal relays to premotor, motor and somatic sensory cortex, respectively.
(12) A very high proportion of pallidal and entopeduncular neurons showed changes in firing rate during fluid injection.
(13) Statistical analysis reveals a marked difference between reconstructive surgery and simple thrombectomy, whereas fibrinolysis was found to be a useful but limited method used only in patients with pallid ischemia and in circulatory compensation.
(14) The contradiction which exists between akinesia with an abnormal activity of the medial pallidum and akinesia with bilateral pallidal lesions could only be apparent if akinesia was linked to the ineffective emission or to the interruption of messages to the thalamus.
(15) Neuroleptic administration augmented the responses to cortical stimulation in 12 of 34 pallidal neurons.
(16) A recent neuropathological study has reported decreased levels of dynorphin A immunoreactivity in striato-pallidal fibers in the brain of a patient with severe Gilles de la Tourette's syndrome (TS).
(17) This population was separate from the more numerous population of medium size globus pallidus cells projecting to the subthalamic nucleus and was also separate from the pallidal and especially peripallidal population of large cholinergic cells projecting to the cortex.
(18) We have tested the hypothesis that the basal ganglia initiate some one or several modes of movement by recording the change in discharge frequency of pallidal neurons during visually triggered step and visually paced ramp moves in relation to the visual stimulus onset, the change in the electromyograph (EMG), and the movement onset of trained rhesus monkeys.
(19) The bilateral modulatory effects of striatal stimulation may cancel out the circling behavior seen during pallidal stimulation, and cause only head turning.
(20) Oxidative phosphorylation was studied in isolated liver mitochondria from manganese-deficient mice and in those from a mutant strain, pallid.
(a.) Displaying pomp; stately; showy with grandeur; magnificent; as, a pompous procession.
(1) Leave aside the noxious and pompous view that the views of non-national-security-professionals - whatever that means - should be ignored when it comes to militarism, US foreign policy and war crimes.
(2) On last Friday's Radio 4 Today programme , the historian Robert Service played his part to perfection, pompously advising the BBC to "get some sense of proportion".
(3) He says that the idea of the corrupt, lying, pompous politician has become "the equivalent of the mother-in-law or Irish joke of the 1970s".
(4) As the debate reached its conclusion, Stockwood, dressed grandly in a purple cassock and pompously fondling his crucifix in a way that was devastatingly lampooned by Rowan Atkinson a week later on a Not the Nine O'Clock News sketch, delivered his parting shot of, "You'll get your 30 pieces of silver."
(5) She was terrifying but not pompous, and she could be quite playful, quite cosy in a strange way."
(6) Auda is more of a problem: his character is portrayed as an unreformed savage who cares only for violence, treasure and his own pompous self-image.
(7) Giles Oakley London • In conception and format, it was trite – while being undeservedly pompous and self-esteeming.
(8) About three years ago, he was teasing me about something – being thick probably, or making pompous speeches.
(9) His chairman, Sir Malcolm Rifkind, was more magnificently pompous, as befits an ex-foreign secretary.
(10) Please don't read my pompous views above as referring to the great majority of gallery shows, where dealers display art they hope someone will want to buy for their home, and new collectors are born every week.
(11) When those inside the temple are pompous hypocrites, maybe it is the better place to be.
(12) Those who actively seek out linguistic slip-ups will correct you with such glee that it makes you doubt whether their commitment to "calling out" bigotry matches their commitment to pompous arseholerly.
(13) Chaplin himself wrote about this process: "Sometimes a musician would get pompous with me, and I would cut him short: 'Whatever the melody is, the rest is just a vamp.'
(14) I realised that my goal here really is to represent – it sounds super-pompous – how we think and how we associate.
(15) "Without wishing to sound pompous, I do more research now than ever.
(16) I will leave the public to judge his actions.” Mick Cash, general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union, said it should be no surprise that his black cab members across London were considering “a boycott of the Tory toff David Mellor over his outrageous, pompous and disgraceful tirade against one of their colleagues”.
(17) Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – five reasons we're still slightly worried Read more This caped crusader has had a personality upgrade Facebook Twitter Pinterest Photograph: Warner Bros The Batman we met in The Lego Movie aways seemed an unlikely candidate for his own solo film, a pompous jerk who was more Flash Thompson than Bruce Wayne.
(18) It was as absurd for a Tory MP to demand Abbott's resignation from the shadow cabinet on account of this remark as it was for Ed Miliband to tell her pompously "in no uncertain terms" that it had been "unacceptable".
(19) It's pompous twaddle with no relevance to fucking anything."
(20) This is all the more surprising since Tolstoy seems to speak freely, in his fiction, with the sort of moralistic-prophetic voice – the voice of a teacher of right and wrong – that lesser writers are obliged to use sparingly, unless they want to sound pompous and didactic.
