The central and intertropical parts of the Atlantic swarm with Pteropoda, Crustacea, and Radiata, and with their devourers the flying- fish, and again with their devourers the bonitos and albicores; I presume that the numerous lower pelagic animals feed on the Infusoria, which are now known, from the researches of Ehrenberg, to abound in the open ocean: but on what, in the clear blue water, do these Infusoria subsist?
One such system of interest pertains to the pestiferous Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Liviidae), and its primary parasitoids, Diaphorencyrtus aligarhensis (Shafee, Alam & Agarwal) (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) and Tamarixia radiata (Waterston) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) (Vankosky & Hoddle 2016).
There was an association between higher cortisol level and multiple areas of microstructural changes (decreased regional fractional anisotropy), especially in the splenium of corpus callosum and the posterior corona radiata. There was variance by sex for the association of cortisol level with total cerebral brain volume (P for interaction = 0.048).
In this article, our aim was to present a patient who was admitted with hyperglycemia and hemichorea and who had hyperdense appearance on cranial computed tomography (CT) scan and ipsilateral acute infarction of the corona radiata. We discuss the relationship between hyperglycemia, ischemic stroke, and hemichorea in light of the literature.
(2013) reported that the presence of the ants Pheidole megacephala Fabricius, 1793, Brachymyrmex patagonicus Mayr, 1868, and Solenopsis invicta Buren, 1972, correlated positively with high rates of parasitization by the wasp Tamarixia radiata (Waterston) (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae).
Brain CT scan showed a hypodensity in the left corona radiata. Angiographic sequences found a left M2 segment subocclusive stenosis.
