This study compared rats with dorsal striatal, ventrolateral prefrontal cortical, and combined lesions of the hippocampus and amygdala to sham controls on a conditional discrimination task in which contextual cues modulated a taste aversion. All groups were able to acquire this occasion setting task. The 2nd experiment functionally minimized the(More)
We introduce MAD7, a tool that rapidly simulates many-core memory architectures at a functional level. MAD7 focuses on tracking access patterns and data spatial localities rather than enforcing any precise on-chip arbitration protocols. Although not cycle accurate by nature, it provides useful insights when comparing different memory architectures under(More)
Increasing the number of processing cores on chip multiprocessors has become a mainstream strategy to boost their capabilities. At the same time, there is a need for tools to help design on-chip memory architectures supporting these newly added cores. Such tools are usually fully implemented in software which are unfortunately difficult to scale, partly(More)
This paper introduces PASTIS, a novel photonic arbitration protocol based on a scalable token injection scheme, and ring-based nanophotonic technology. It aims at connecting together processors and memories in many-core computer systems by means of a ring topology. The main strength of PASTIS lays in the fact that it uses photonic components exclusively,(More)
Shorter interconnects and higher integration are among the benefits that 3D die-stacking is expected to bring to future integrated circuits. However, when stacking power-dissipating dies one on top of the other, the total power density increases accordingly. As a result, temperatures in 3DICs are exacerbated. TSVs are regarded as a solution since they are(More)
