The neuropeptide oxytocin has become a subject of great interest in studies investigating human social cognition. Single intranasal administration of the hormone has been reported to have positive behavioral effects, such as increasing trust or facilitating social approach, 45-80 min after administration. However, little is still known about the long-term(More)
iii Abstract In early 2010, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) science collaboration initiated a study to investigate the physics potential of the experiment with a broad set of different beam, near-and far-detector configurations. Nine initial topics were identified as scientific areas that motivate construction of a long-baseline neutrino(More)
The ascending excitatory reflex is an important part of the myenteric reflex. In order to study the ascending neural pathways, isolated segments of rat ileum were stimulated by electrical stimulation of the gut wall (20 V, 3 pulses per second, 1 ms) using platinum electrodes. The excitatory contractile response was recorded using perfused manometric(More)
Hereditary sensory radicular neuropathy exhibits autosomal dominant inheritance with complete penetrance in males and incomplete penetrance in females. Newer tests of small sensory nerve function were used in screening 8 family members aged between 14 and 66 years. All exhibited some frequent features of the disorder with an onset in the 2nd or 3rd decade,(More)
The ascending excitatory reflex is part of the peristaltic reflex, an important participant in intestinal propulsion. The aim of this study was to characterize the role of different opioid receptors in the ascending reflex through exogenous application of non-selective (Met-enkephalin) and selective opioid agonists (mu-PLO17, delta-DPDPE, kappa-U-50, 488)(More)
Plasma immersion ion implantation from a BF 3 plasma into crystalline (100) silicon was performed using the PULSION plasma doping tool. Implanted boron profiles were measured with the SIMS method and simulated using models with different levels of sophistication. The physical implantation model is based on an analytical energy distribution for ions from the(More)
Diierential cross sections for pp elastic scattering have been measured for very small momentum transfers at six diierent incident antiproton momenta in the range 3.7 to 6.2 GeV/c by the detection of recoil protons at scattering angles close to 90. Forward scattering parameters T , b, and have been determined. For the-parameter, up to an order of magnitude(More)
The two-neutrino mode of double-beta decay in Se has been observed in a time-projection chamber at a half-life of (1.1 — +Q) X 1020 yr (68% confidence level). This result from direct counting confirms the earlier geochemical measurements and helps provide a standard by which to test the double-beta-decay matrix elements of nuclear theory. It is the rarest(More)
In the experiment E760 performed in the Antiproton Accumulator at Fermilab we have studied the two photon decay of the c (1 1 S 0) charmonium state formed in pp annihilations. This resulted in a new measurement of the mass, M c = 2987:52:9 M eV =c 2 , of the product of branching ratios, B(c ! pp) B(c !) = (35:4 7:6) 10 ?8 , and of the product B(c ! pp) ?(c(More)
