    Abstract: Superior Colliculus (SC) plays a vital role in visual target selection and attention shifting; it also an important structure in studying the central nervous system. However, the cytoarchitecture and connectivity of the SC in mouse brain have not been explicitly explored. In this paper, to investigate the structural delineations and of connectivity... Show More

    Abstract: In this study, the application of ground coconut husk GCH for removal of Cr (VI) from its aqueous solution was investigated. Several batch experiments were carried out with different values of test conditions including sorbent concentration, contact time, temperature and pH. The results obtained showed that adsorption of Cr (VI) followed Freundlich... Show More
