Vatagins for excellent research assistance. We are also indebted to […] and participants of […]. Abstract This paper measures disputes between governments and private international creditors during sovereign debt crises. We develop an index of government coerciveness consisting of 9 objective sub-indicators. Each of these sub-indicators captures unilateral(More)
Since the first description of a systematic mis-reaching by Bálint in 1909, a reasonable number of patients showing a similar phenomenology, later termed optic ataxia (OA), has been described. However, there is surprising inconsistency regarding the behavioral measures that are used to detect OA in experimental and clinical reports, if the respective(More)
Selective processing of environmental stimuli improves processing capacity and allows adaptive modulation of behavior. The thalamus provides an effective filter of central sensory information processing. As olfactory projections, however, largely bypass the thalamus, other filter mechanisms must consequently have evolved for the sense of smell. We(More)
This article aims to identify which political and economic factors explain aggressive government behaviour towards international investors in times of financial distress.

The European Board of Neurology has established Open Facilities for Training in European Neurology (OFTEN) by creating a databank of excellent or good neurological departments from 14 European countries willing to receive trainees from abroad (http://www.uems.be/neuro.htm). Further expansion of this databank with an increased number of participating(More)
Detection and tracking algorithms for a Hemispherical Optical Sensor Tracker (HOST) are described. The HOST unit provides simultaneous and continuous viewing of a region spanning 360° of azimuth and-7° to zenith in elevation. Maximum likelihood derived, multi-frame detection algorithms are described for use with a stationary HOST surveillance sensor. A(More)
