Pilot studies revealed promising results regarding crushing virtual cigarettes to reduce tobacco addiction. In this study, 91 regular smokers were randomly assigned to two treatment conditions that differ only by the action performed in the virtual environment: crushing virtual cigarettes or grasping virtual balls.

Transethmoid-sphenoid decompression has been performed on 11 patients with indirect optic nerve injury. Visual improvement occurred in 8 patients, including 4 patients with initial total blindness. Optic neuropathy improved even when there was a long interval, up to 92 days, between trauma and decompression. There is still controversy about the treatment of(More)
This paper presents a practical mitigation technique for the ferroresonance induced by the single-phase primary opening of a three-phase 5-legged (wound core) station service transformer. This ferroresonance problem was causing erratic behaviour of the automatic transfer switch between the main and reserve station service transformers. A nonlinear(More)
Optic nerve trauma induces loss of vision and absence of direct pupillary light reflex. Persistence of consensual pupillary light reflex excludes anatomical section. Trans ethmoidal-sphenoidal decompression relieves the optic nerve and allows an improvement of visual function. Ten patients among 15 surgical decompressions recovered visual function. There is(More)
