We study, theoretically and quantitatively, the general equilibrium of an economy in which households smooth consumption by means of both a riskless asset and unsecured loans with the option to default. The default option resembles a bankruptcy filing under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Competitive financial intermediaries offer a menu of loan(More)
The standard Mortensen-Pissarides model of search and matching is extended by introducing capital, risk-averse workers, labor-leisure choice and lack of complete markets to insure away unemployment shocks. The business cycle properties of the model with aggregate productivity shocks are explored, with an emphasis on labor market dynamics. In particular, I(More)
I develop a general-equilibrium model of housing and default to jointly analyze the effects of bankruptcy and foreclosure policies. Heterogeneous households have access to mortgages and unsecured credit and can default separately on both types of debt. I show that the interaction between foreclosure and bankruptcy decisions is crucial for explaining the(More)
We present a patient with transient global amnesia (TGA) whose diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) study showed a high-intensity signal in the left retrosplenium of the corpus callosum. In previous studies, lesions in the retrosplenium caused permanent but not transient global amnesia, called retrosplenial amnesia, by involving the thalamocortical portion of(More)

The private market of student loans has become an important source of college financing in the U.S. Unlike government student loans, the terms on private student loans (i.e., credit limits and interest rates) are based on credit scores We quantify the effects of credit scores on college investment in a heterogeneous life-cycle economy that exhibits a(More)
We hypothesized that extensive early ischemic changes increase subsequent intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in patients within 3 h of onset regardless of intravenous tPA (IV-tPA). We have established a modified scoring method, ASPECTS+W, including deep white matter lesions on DWI (DWI-W) in addition to the original ASPECTS regions. We aimed to elucidate whether(More)
BACKGROUND Sialic acid is a deoxy uronic acid with a skeleton of nine carbons which is mostly found on cell surface in animals. This sialic acid on cell surface performs various biological functions by acting as a receptor for microorganisms, viruses, toxins, and hormones; by masking receptors; and by regulating the immune system. In order to synthesize an(More)
