Thalamic and cortical V1 layer 4 neurons are capable of firing highly reliably and precisely upon repeated presentations of the same visual stimulus to the retina. To compare candidate causal mechanisms of spike-time reliability, a reconstructed multicompartment spiny stel-late cell model with dynamic stochastic synapses was given varying synaptic inputs.(More)
Composite materials are increasingly used in rotorcraft structures to reduce weight and improve efficiency. The rotorcraft industry is constantly in need of higherperformance materials that offer improved mechanical strength and stiffness at a lower weight. In polymer-matrix composite structures, matrix-dominated failures impose severe limitations on(More)
Many instructors have thought of some day writing a textbook but do not know how to go about it. A number of considerations become important at different stages of the authoring and publishing process. Of particular importance to beginning and experienced authors alike are: how to get started, the reasons and motivations for writing a textbook, the special(More)
