, : Mercury contamination of terrestrial vegetation near a caustic soda factory in Thailand. Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 24(3): 463-466

Hg residues in eggplant leaves growing near the factory were 7.4 p.p.m. (on a dry weight basis) compared with 0.04 p.p.m. in leaves of similar plants growing elsewhere.

We propose and evaluate an automatic segmentation method for extracting striatal brain structures (caudate, putamen, and ventral striatum) from parametric (11)C-raclopride positron emission tomography (PET) brain images. We focus on the images acq...

Rats trained to self-administer cocaine (0.75 mg/kg/infusion) on an FR-5 schedule were treated with selective D1 or D2 antagonists. A69045, a D1 antagonist with no appreciable affinity for 5-HT receptors increased cocaine self-administration to 14...

Shotgun lipidomics is a well-suited approach to monitor lipid alterations due to its ability to scan for varying lipid types on a global, class and individual species level. However, the ability to perform high-throughput shotgun lipidomics has re...
