The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) represents a phylogenetically ancient region of the mammalian brain that has undergone recent adaptive changes in humans. It contains a large spindle-shaped cell type, referred to as von Economo neuron (VEN) that has been shown to be involved in the pathophysiology of various neuropsychiatric disorders. Schizophrenia is a(More)
Suicide is the most important incident in psychiatric disorders. Psychological pain and empathy to pain involves a neural network that involves the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) and the anterior insula (AI). At the neuronal level, little is known about how complex emotions such as shame, guilt, self-derogation and social isolation, all of which feature(More)
The design of new railway infrastructure is a complex planning process today in most Eu-ropean countries due to several requirements. From an operational point of view new infrastructure basically has to fulfil the requirements defined by the later customers who are the railway undertakings.

This paper evaluates the effectiveness of reducing scheduled station dwell time to save energy on commuter rail lines. Most commuter rail schedules include a fixed amount of dwell time (e.g. 30-seconds) at each station. For stations with higher demand the station dwell time may be up to 1 minute. Generally the station dwell time is set high enough to meet(More)
The design of new railway infrastructure is a complex planning process in most countries today due to a multitude of requirements. From an operational point of view new infrastructure basically has to fulfill the needs defined by customers. To this end passenger traffic is often organized in an integrated timetable with well defined arrival and departure(More)
