[GABA.sub.A] Receptor Blockade Affected Sound Frequency Tuning in XMAC More Than in Normal AC.
The thresholds of auditory neurons in XMAC were affected by gabazine application, falling from 58.0 [+ or -] 1.54 to 52.7 [+ or -] 1.69 dB (n = 55, P < 0.001, Wilcoxon rank-sum test, Figure 4(a)).
Gabazine application did not produce a shift in characteristic frequency tuning, either in AC neurons in normal animals or in AC neurons of XMAC animals, but gabazine did significantly broaden the bandwidth of the tuning curves in both normal AC (from 0.7 [+ or -] 0.10 to 1.0 [+ or -] 0.10 octaves at 10 dB above threshold; n = 41, P < 0.001, Wilcoxon rank-sum test, Figure 4(c)) and in XMAC (from 1.2 [+ or -] 0.10 to 1.7 [+ or -] 0.11 octaves; n = 55, P < 0.001,Wilcoxon rank-sum test, Figure 4(c)).
Spontaneous Activity Levels Were Lower in XMAC Than in Normal AC.
[GABA.sub.A] Receptor Blockade Affected Responsiveness to Sound in XMAC More Than in Normal AC.
The proposed scheme uses a short preamble that is similar to XMAC to reduce unnecessary transmission delay and energy consumption caused by a long preamble.
8 compares the average number of short preamble packets of the UDC scheme and XMAC for each sending node.
10 compares the average packet reception rate of the UDC scheme and XMAC. When nodes s2 and s3 start transmission, the network becomes congested, and consequently, the packet reception rate of XMAC is decreased to 600 s.
11 compares the loss rates of the UDC scheme and XMAC for each sending node.
