Do the Parietal Cells Respond in All-or-none Manner?
This paper reports a study designed to investigate whether the all-or-none conception of the learning process can be extended to a learning task more complex than conditioning or simple verbal association. The experimental task is to learn numerical sequences by anticipating each new member of the sequences. Although the obtained sequence learning appears very complex, it proves to be analyzabl...متن کامل
What are the true functional underpinnings of perception, emotion, consciousness, and subconscious processes remains an unsolved question (Alivisatos et al., 2012). For example, it seems somewhat mysterious how one and the same structure of neural circuits—the human brain—sometimes allows conscious experience and sometimes does not allow it. We even do not know whether this owes to the alternat...متن کامل
THE PURSUIT OF EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE IS NOW AT the core of the agenda for improving health care in the United States. All major quality measurement systems use science-based indicators of proper processes of care, such as the ORYX measures of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the Health Employer Data and Information Sets measures of the National Committee on Q...متن کامل
In the history of SLA research, the relationship between explicit and implicit knowledge has incited heated debate, culminating in, broadly, three disparate positions: (a) the non-interface; (b) the weak-interface; and (c) the stronginterface. In this paper, we re-engage the theoretical debate. Unlike the previous discussions, however, which typically find researchers espousing one position aga...متن کامل
JNK proteins are ubiquitously expressed, evolutionarily conserved MAP kinases that are involved in stress responses. Recently, it was shown that the JNK cascade in Xenopus oocytes exhibits sustained, all-or-none responses to graded, transient stimuli. Here, we have examined the character of the JNK cascade's response in mammalian cells. The steady-state responses of JNK to sorbitol and anisomyc...متن کامل
