Human subjects were exposed to pictures of potentially phobic (snakes) and supposedly neutral (houses) objects as conditioned stimuli (CSs) in a Pavlovian conditioning experiment with shock as unconditioned stimulus (US), and skin conductance and finger pulse volume as dependent variables. The skin conductance responses conditioned to phobic stimuli were(More)
High nuclear spin polarization of (13)C was reached in organic molecules. Enhancements of up to 10(4), compared to thermal polarization at 1.5 T, were achieved using the parahydrogen-induced polarization technique in combination with a field cycling method. While parahydrogen has no net polarization, it has a high spin order, which is retained when hydrogen(More)
This Special Issue constitutes an edited selection from the papers of a conference Financing SMEs, sponsored by Sweden's NUTEK and held in Brussels in September 1995. The conference program was structured to include a significant proportion of the papers by policy-makers from both the public and the private sectors, the remainder to be contributed by the(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Long-term exposure to NEFAs leads to inhibition of glucose-induced insulin secretion. We tested whether the release of somatostatin and glucagon, the two other major islet hormones, is also affected. METHODS Mouse pancreatic islets were cultured for 72 h at 4.5 or 15 mmol/l glucose with or without 0.5 mmol/l oleate or palmitate. The(More)
This report covers a first implementation of a general Monte Carlo engine, within Front ARENA (PRIME client). The engine was developed to be powerful enough to price the derivatives Asian, Barrier, Asian basket, Barrier basket and Altiplano. The engine ended up powerful enough to define a valuation function for a coplex derivative issued by one of the major(More)
