An updated version of the spectral (bin) microphysics cloud model developed at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem [the Hebrew University Cloud Model (HUCM)] is described. The model microphysics is based on the solution of the equation system for size distribution functions of cloud hydrometeors of seven types (water drops, plate-, columnar-, and branch-like(More)
Recent evidence suggests that opioid analgesia and tolerance can be modulated by metabotropic glutamate receptors. Therefore, we studied the functional coupling and desensitization of the micro-opioid receptor (MOR) in human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells which co-express metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5). As demonstrated by the(More)
An integrated tunable microlens, whose focal length may be varied over a range of 3 to 15 mm with total power consumption below 250 mW, is presented. Using thermo-pneumatic actuation, this adaptive optical microsystem is completely integrated and requires no external pressure controllers for operation. The lens system consists of a liquid-filled cavity(More)
In animal and human research, the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT) has been implicated in inhibitory control. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the present study investigated the acute effects of pharmacological modulation of the serotonergic system on brain activation during response inhibition and re-engagement in healthy human(More)
Improved Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging (LSCI) blood flow analyses that incorporate inverse models of the underlying laser-tissue interaction have been used to develop more quantitative implementations of speckle flowmetry such as Multi-Exposure Speckle Imaging (MESI). In this paper, we determine the optimal camera exposure durations required for obtaining(More)
Polymeric structures with integrated, functional microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS) elements are increasingly important in various applications such as biomedical systems or wearable smart devices. These applications require highly flexible and elastic polymers with good conductivity, which can be embedded into a matrix that undergoes large(More)
of photoplethysmographic (PPG) signal is widely used to assess metabolic conditions of monitored tissues. Probes were designed to acquire physiological changes through the spine induced by external stimulation. In vivo results demonstrate that such probes can be deployed to monitor and analyze autonomic functions of the spinal cord. M The Spinal Cord (SC)(More)
Despite of the relevance of psychosomatic-psychotherapeutic outpatient services there is a lack of empirical studies concerning their effectiveness and compliance from the patients' point of view. This study describes the retrospective judgements of a maximum of three outpatient consultations, given by 125 patients after a mean follow-up period of 14(More)
In a detailed analysis of the data from a follow-up study with 125 patients of a psychosomatic outpatient unit, possible determinants of the utilization of therapeutic recommendations (which was seen as an indicator of compliance) have been analysed. The overall compliance-rate in the sample was 49%. Comparisons of the patients who were compliant or(More)
