The present study used microdialysis techniques to compare acetylcholine release in the frontoparietal cortex of rats performing in a task requiring sustained attention with that of rats performing in two control procedures. The two control procedures were a fixed-interval 9-s schedule of reinforcement assessing primarily the effects of operant responding(More)
Hamilton Sundstrand Space Systems International (HSSSI) participated with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute and Simon Fraser University in the 2001 field season of NASA's Haughton-Mars Project (HMP) to study information technologies concepts and hardware systems for(More)
Nordic cooperation is one of the world's most extensive forms Nordic cooperation has firm traditions in politics, the economy, and culture. It plays an important role in European and international collaboration, and aims at creating a strong Nordic community in a strong Europe. Nordic cooperation seeks to safeguard Nordic and regional interests and(More)
Biochar application to soil is widely claimed to increase plant productivity. However, the underlying mechanisms are still not conclusively described. Here, we aim to elucidate these mechanisms using stable isotope probing. We conducted two experiments with uniquely double-labelled (15N and 13C) biochar and its feedstock (residue), applied separately at 15(More)
Willow, a leading bioenergy feedstock, may be planted for bioremediation and has been used, more recently, as the biomass feedstock in the manufacture of biochar for agricultural applications. Here, we present a detailed study of the physical and chemical factors affecting willow char properties, where the feedstock is a by-product of bioremediation,(More)
We describe the design of an experimental rig, which was developed to allow reactor testing at relevant conditions, i.e. vacuum and ∼400°C temperature, of prototype resistive bolometers, which will be used in ITER to acquire information on the radiated power distribution from the main plasma and in the diverter region. The main feature of the(More)
