Event-related potentials (ERPs) were used to investigate whether processing differences between nouns and verbs can be accounted for by the differential salience of visual-perceptual and motor attributes in their semantic specifications. Three subclasses of nouns and verbs were selected, which differed in their semantic attribute composition (abstract, high(More)
OBJECTIVES Recent studies with event-related brain potentials (ERPs) investigating music processing found (early) negativities with right-hemispheric predominance as a response to inappropriate harmonies within sequences of chords. The stimuli used in those studies were fairly artificial in order to control the experimental factors (e.g. variations in tempo(More)
Wave pipelining is a technique for pipelining digital systems that can increase the clock frequency without increasing the number of storage elements. This is achieved by clocking the system faster than the propagation delay between storage elements. The design of such systems is more difficult because all paths in the combinational logic must have about(More)
Two major limitations concerning the design of cost-effective application-specific architectures are the recurrent costs of system-software development and hardware implementation, in particular VLSI implementation, for each architecture. The SCalable ARChitecture Experiment (SCARCE) aims to provide a framework for application-specific processor design. The(More)
Traditionally microcoded computers have been the ideal machines for implementing scalable architectures. These machines easily implement application-specific functionality in microcode and they allow architecturally transparent variation of cost/performance by trading off application code, microcode, and hardware. In contrast, hardwired machines are(More)
The SCARCE architecture framework allows the cost-effective design of application-specific architectures for a wide variety of embedded applications (controllers, signal processing, graphics). Cost-effective in this context means reduction of recurrent hardware and software development costs while achieving high performance. To aid efficient control over(More)
A connection between preferences for heavy metal, rap, reggae, electronic dance music, and substance use has previously been established. However, evidence as to the gender-specific links between substance use and a wider range of music genres in a nationally representative sample of adolescents has to date been missing. In 2003, the Dutch government funded(More)
Two patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were treated successfully with the anti-epileptic drug topiramate. Nightmares and the re-experiencing of traumatic events were particularly responsive to the treatment. Topiramate acted rapidly at a relatively low dosage and seems to be an important addition to the limited range of drugs availablefor(More)

Both music preferences and the substance use behavior of peers are important elements in explaining adolescent substance use. The extent to which music preference and peer use overlap in explaining adolescent substance use remains to be determined. A nationally representative sample of 7324 Dutch school-going adolescents (aged 12-16) provided data on music(More)
