A family of shock capturing schemes for the approximate solution of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws is presented. The schemes are based on a modified ENO reconstruction of pointwise values from cell averages and on approximate computation of the flux on cell boundaries. The use of a staggered grid avoids the need of a Riemann solver. The integral of(More)
Excitotoxicity following cerebral ischemia elicits a molecular cascade, which leads to neuronal death. c-Jun-N-terminal kinase (JNK) has a key role in excitotoxic cell death. We have previously shown that JNK inhibition by a specific cell-permeable peptide significantly reduces infarct size and neuronal death in an in vivo model of cerebral ischemia.(More)
