In this paper we describe the control system of the bending magnet prototype test bench at the Barcelona Synchrotron Laboratory (LLS, formerly LSB). We have implemented the control system of this bench in two architectures: (a) PC based with fully commercial hardware and software, (b) distributed system using EPICS. We present here the advantages of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether there are differences in verbal working memory amongst subjects with schizophrenia, their first degree relatives and controls, and to evaluate the influence of symptoms on these differences, as an initial step to assess whether this cognitive function is an endophenotype. METHODS We examined 197 cases with schizophrenia, 197(More)
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are conservation strategies to preserve the degradation of marine ecosystems by allowing species to naturally recover. Central to MPA design is the assumption of connectivity in marine populations over hundreds of kilometers, but only in a few handful of species the scale of connectivity has been estimated. To facilitate the(More)

sigma-1 Receptors have been identified in numerous brain regions, including areas such as hypothalamus and amygdala, which have long been linked to the regulation of aggression. However, there is no clear information with respect to the possible effects of sigma-1 ligands on aggressive behavior in laboratory animals. Consequently, the present study examined(More)
In the process of making a detailed design for a synchrotron accelerator in Barcelona, we have designed and implemented the control system for a magnetic measurements system [1], conceived as an evaluation for the accelerator control system which is planned to use the EPICS toolkit [2]. In this article, we introduce a new sequencing tool (called Finite(More)
1. Three kinds of antidepressants (clomipramine, sleep deprivation, and electroconvulsive shock) increase the firing rate in the lateral septal neurons of the rat. 2. The acute combination of these treatments, however, did not produce added effects on firing rate of lateral septal neurons in the rat. 3. 24 hours of sleep deprivation blocked the actions of a(More)
