In Praise of Fault Tolerant Systems " Fault attacks have recently become a serious concern in the smart card industry. " Fault Tolerant Systems " provides the reader with a clear exposition of these attacks and the protection strategies that can be used to thwart them. A must read for practitioners and researchers working in the field. " David Naccache,(More)

The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans offers a promising system for the reductionist study of learning and memory. In this article, classical conditioning in C. elegans is demonstrated with a variety of associative learning assays. These assays allowed for the isolation and behavioral characterization of 2 mutant C. elegans lines impaired in associative(More)
The alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA)-type ionotropic glutamate receptor mediates fast excitatory neurotransmission in the vertebrate brain and is important for synaptic plasticity and the initial induction of long-term potentiation (LTP). This study found that the putative Caenorhabditis elegans AMPA receptor gene, glr-1, plays a(More)
The C. elegans mutants, lrn-1 and lrn-2, are impaired in associative learning using conditioned taste cues. Both mutants are defective in associative learning about appetitive and aversive events, indicating that lrn-1 and lrn-2 exert effects across motivational boundaries. In a new olfactory associative learning paradigm, in which wild type worms learn to(More)
The effects of cooling on associative learning and memory processes in Caenorhabditis elegans were investigated by giving the worms cold shock at various times before or after conditioning. A pretraining cold shock in the 30 min immediately before conditioning and a posttraining cold shock in the 30 min immediately after conditioning both disrupted learning(More)
A booklet entitled "Imprint of the Past: Ecological History of New Bedford Harbor" (U.S. EPA, Region 1; 2001; No. 901-R-01-003), was produced in partnership with the New Bedford Whaling Museum and EPA Region 1. This booklet includes many of the things found in this report, but it does not include the results of the sediment cores. The text in the booklet is(More)
