Recent anatomical data suggest that the nucleus accumbens can be parcellated into a core region, related to the caudate-putamen, and a shell region, associated with the limbic system. We have used pharmacological methods to characterize the dopamine innervations of the nucleus accumbens core and shell in the rat. Concentrations of both dopamine and(More)

As part of a collaborative EU project, this study examined the impact of lifelike affective facial expressions, in the humanoid robot Zeno, on children's behavior and attitudes towards the(More)

It is possible that positive affect could influence these outcomes by promoting healthful cognitions and behaviours. The present review identified conceptual pathways from positive affect to health cognitions(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Studies have shown that levels of green fluorescent protein (GFP) leaf surface fluorescence are directly proportional to GFP soluble protein concentration in transgenic plants. However, instruments that measure GFP surface fluorescence are expensive. The goal of this investigation was to develop techniques with consumer digital cameras(More)
