The ANTARES Collaboration proposes to construct a large area water Cherenkov detector in the deep Mediterranean Sea, optimised for the detection of muons from high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. This paper presents the scientific motivation for building such a device, along with a review of the technical issues involved in its design and construction. The(More)
The ANTARES collaboration is building a deep sea neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. This detector will cover a sensitive area of typically 0:1 km 2 and will be equipped with about 1000 optical modules. Each of these optical modules consists of a large area photomultiplier and its associated electronics housed in a pressure resistant glass sphere.(More)
Paraplegia caused by irreversible lesions of the spinal cord is one of the major possible complications after scoliosis surgery. Several monitoring methods have been proposed but none are completely satisfactory. Since 1986 the authors assessed motor pathways during scoliosis surgery, using electrical stimulation of the motor cortex and lower limb muscle(More)
BACKGROUND Antiamphiphysin antibodies react with a 128-kd protein found in synaptic vesicles. They were first described in patients with paraneoplastic stiff-man syndrome and breast cancer, but studies suggest that they can also occur in patients with other tumors and neurological disorders. OBJECTIVE To determine if antiamphiphysin antibodies are(More)
The ANTARES neutrino telescope is a large photomultiplier array designed to detect neutrino-induced upward-going muons by their Cherenkov radiation. Understanding the absorption and scattering of light in the deep Mediterranean is fundamental to optimising the design and performance of the detector. This paper presents measurements of blue and UV light(More)
Motor evoked potentials (MEP) were recorded in 23 patients with definite relapsing multiple sclerosis before and after treatment with a short course of high dose of methylprednisolone. MEP were performed together with clinical examination just before treatment, and 6 and 60 days later. The following results were observed: (1) a statistically significant(More)

We report on high spectral and spatial resolution kinematic observations of Hα emission from the Cartwheel system obtained with a scanning Fabry–Perot interferometer. Velocity fields for two galaxies were measured, for the main galaxy of the system, the Cartwheel galaxy, and for a spiral companion ∼ 25 h −1 kpc to the north. The velocity field and the(More)
2 Abstract The ANTARES collaboration has performed a series of in situ measurements to study the background light for a planned undersea neutrino telescope. Such background can be caused by 40 K decays or by biological activity. We report on measurements at two sites in the Mediterranean Sea at depths of 2400 m and 2700 m, respectively. Three(More)
The ANTARES neutrino telescope, to be immersed depth in the Mediterranean Sea, will consist of a three-dimensional matrix of 900 large area photomultiplier tubes housed in pressure-resistant glass spheres. The selection of the optimal photomultiplier was a critical step for the project and required an intensive phase of tests and developments carried out in(More)
A catalog of ionized gas velocity fields for a sample of 30 spiral and irregular galaxies of the Virgo cluster has been obtained by using three-dimensional optical data. The aim of this survey is to study the influence of high density environments on the gaseous kinematics of local cluster galaxies. Observations of the Hα line by means of Fabry-Perot(More)
