Synchronized low-frequency spontaneous fluctuations of the functional MRI (fMRI) signal have recently been applied to investigate large-scale neuronal networks of the brain in the absence of specific task instructions. However, the underlying neural mechanisms of these fluctuations remain largely unknown. To this end, electrophysiological recordings and(More)
In cerebral blood volume (CBV)-weighted functional MRI (fMRI) employing superparamagnetic contrast agent, iron dose and blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) contamination are two important issues for experimental design and CBV quantification. Both BOLD and CBV-weighted fMRI are based upon the susceptibility effect, to which spin-echo and gradient-echo(More)
The value of analyzing neuroimaging data on a group level has been well established in human studies. However, there is no standard procedure for registering and analyzing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data into common space in rodent fMRI studies. An approach for performing rat imaging data analysis in the stereotaxic framework is presented.(More)
A hallmark of human cognition is the ability to rapidly assign meaning to sensory stimuli. It has been suggested that this fast visual object categorization ability is accomplished by a feedforward processing hierarchy consisting of shape-selective neurons in occipito-temporal cortex that feed into task circuits in frontal cortex computing conceptual(More)
The impact of the major interferents (hemolysis, bilirubin, turbidity), on the quality of biochemical tests, was evaluated on multiparametric analysers (CL 7200 Shimadzu, Japan/Ciba-Corning, France; AU 5231 and AU 5223 Olympus, Japan/bioMérieux, France), according to the SFBC instructions. Interferences were detected in 33 cases upon 165 tests realized,(More)
The functionally elastic, I-band part of the myofibrillar protein titin (connectin) contains differentially expressed arrays of serially linked immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains, the length and composition of which vary among the titin isoforms. The biological rationale of the differential expression as well as the contribution of the Ig domain mechanical(More)
It is shown that strong 0(+)(2)-->0(+)(1) E0 transitions provide a clear signature of phase transitional behavior in finite nuclei. Calculations using the interacting-boson approximation (IBA) show that these transition strengths exhibit a dramatic and robust increase in spherical-deformed shape transition regions, that this rise matches well the existing(More)
A β-decaying high-spin isomer in (96)Cd, with a half-life T(1/2)=0.29(-0.10)(+0.11) s, has been established in a stopped beam rare isotope spectroscopic investigations at GSI (RISING) experiment. The nuclei were produced using the fragmentation of a primary beam of (124)Xe on a (9)Be target. From the half-life and the observed γ decays in the daughter(More)
Gamow-Teller (GT) transitions in atomic nuclei are sensitive to both nuclear shell structure and effective residual interactions. The nuclear GT excitations were studied for the mass number A = 42, 46, 50, and 54 "f-shell" nuclei in ((3)He, t) charge-exchange reactions. In the (42)Ca → (42)Sc reaction, most of the GT strength is concentrated in the lowest(More)
In the doubly magic nucleus Pb, five states are observed at 5648, 5658, 5686, 5694, 5836 keV by Pb(p, p′) via isobaric analog resonances in Bi. The 5686, 5694, 5836 states with spins 6−, 7−, 8− are shown to contain almost the full strength of the particle-hole configuration g9/2f7/2. The 5658 5 − state contains a major g9/2f7/2 fragment with admixtures of(More)
