Brain mechanisms for emotional influences on perception and attention: What is magic and what is not
TLDR
It is suggested that emotion signals may enhance processing efficiency and competitive strength of emotionally significant events through gain control mechanisms similar to those of other attentional systems, but mediated by distinct neural mechanisms in amygdala and interconnected prefrontal areas.
Tectonic history of the western Tethys since the Late Triassic
The tectonic history of the western Tethys since the Late Triassic is illustrated through a set of computer-generated plate reconstructions, which are based on a rigorous plate motions model of this
Plate kinematics of the Western Mediterranean region during the Oligocene and Early Miocene
SUMMARY The tectonic history of the Western Mediterranean region during the Oligocene and Early Miocene is illustrated through a series of plate reconstructions, from chron C13n to chron C6n. The
Apparent polar wander paths for the major continents (200 Ma to the present day): a palaeomagnetic reference frame for global plate tectonic reconstructions
SUMMARY Synthetic apparent polar wander (APW) paths for North America, South America, Eurasia, India, Central Africa, Australia and Antarctica for the last 200 Myr are proposed. Computation of these
Breakup of Pangaea and plate kinematics of the central Atlantic and Atlas regions
SUMMARY A new central Pangaea fit (type A) is proposed for the late Ladinian (230 Ma), together with a plate motions model for the subsequent phases of rifting, continental breakup and initial
Stress and Strain
In this chapter, the fundamentals of continuum mechanics are presented, in particular the concepts of stress and strain, and the general equations of motion for a continuum medium. Finally, it is
Birth of an ocean in the Red Sea: Initial pangs
[1] We obtained areal variations of crustal thickness, magnetic intensity, and degree of melting of the sub-axial upwelling mantle at Thetis and Nereus Deeps, the two northernmost axial segments of
Late Permian-Early Jurassic Paleogeography of Western Tethys and the World
We present revised plate tectonic and paleogeographic reconstructions of the western Tethyan region for the time interval between the late Permian (~ 260 Ma) and the early Jurassic (200 Ma), which
