The present study evaluated the correlation between the behavior of mice in the forced swimming test (FST) and in the elevated plus-maze (PM). The effect of the order of the experiments, i.e., the influence of the first test (FST or PM) on mouse behavior in the second test (PM or FST, respectively) was compared to handled animals (HAND). The execution of(More)
1. The use of animal models in certain types of psychobiological studies (for instance, the relationship between anxiety and depression) requires that the behavior measured is stable over time. 2. The test-retest reliability of the elevated plus-maze indexes of anxiety and the immobility time in the behavioral despair were evaluated. 3. The behavior of two(More)
An essential building-block for construction of future real-time computer systems (RTCS’s) is a timeliness-guaranteed operating system. The first co-author recently formulated a model of an operating system kernel which can support both real-time processes and new-style real-time objects with guaranteed timely services. The model has been named the DREAM(More)
The distributed recovery block (DRB) scheme is an approach for realizing both hardware and software fault tolerance in real-time distributed and parallel computer systems. In this paper, we point out that in order for the DRB scheme to yield a high fault coverage and a low recovery time bound, some important consistency requirements must be satisfied by the(More)
In the past few years the massive deployment of realtime multimedia services has motivated the research community to investigate new quality of service (QoS) mechanisms to overcome the limitations of IP networks. Since assured levels of service must be provided, these mechanisms should interact flexibly with network performance management systems. When such(More)
