factor,

in arithmetic, any number that divides a given number evenly, i.e., without any remainder. The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. Similarly in algebra, any one of the algebraic expressions multiplied by another to form a product is a factor of that product, e.g., a+b and ab are factors of a2b 2, since (a+b)(ab)=a2b2. In general, if r is a rootroot,
in mathematics, number or quantity r for which an equation f(r)=0 holds true, where f is some function. If f is a polynomial, r is called a root of f; for example, r=3 and r

mathematical expression which is a finite sum, each term being a constant times a product of one or more variables raised to powers. With only one variable the general form of a polynomial is a0xn+a1x

It is unlikely that anisomycin itself was transported retrogradely from synapse to soma, where it inhibited somatic protein synthesis and thereby blocked LTF. First and most convincingly, application of protein synthesis inhibitors to one branch of a given Aplysia SN does not block LTF at another branch treated with 5-HT (Martin et al., 1997a).
10 of 14 PD patients (71%) with pathological SVV but none with normal SVV reported LTF to have occurred after PD symptom onset.

While a previous study demonstrated unilateral peripheral vestibular hypofunction, ipsilateral to the LTF side [13], we observed a higher prevalence of bilateral alterations in PDPS patients here.
