Previous studies of the early development of the neural tube have shown the existence of an intraneural fluid, which causes a positive pressure inside this primordium, and seems to play a key role in the early development of the central nervous system. In the present study we investigated the composition and synthesis of this intraneural fluid. By using a(More)

Formation of the otocyst from the otic placode appears to differ from invagination of other cup-shaped organ primordia. It is known that the cellular cytoskeleton plays a limited role in otic placode invagination, whilst the extracellular matrix underlying the otic primordium intervenes in the folding process. In this study we have analysed the role of the(More)
Current trends in high-performance parallel computers show that fat-tree interconnection networks are one of the most popular topologies. The particular characteristics of this topology, that provide multiple alternative paths for each source/destination pair, make it an excellent candidate for applying power consumption reduction techniques. Such(More)
Closed microwave digestion and a high-pressure asher have been evaluated for wet-oxidation and extraction of lead, cadmium, chromium, and mercury from a range of typical packaging materials used for food products. For the high-pressure asher a combination of nitric and sulfuric acids was efficient for destruction of a range of packaging materials; for(More)
Nowadays, high-degree switches are available as building blocks of the interconnection network of clusters of PCs. An alternative to take advantage of the high number of switch ports is to connect every pair of switches through not only one but also several links (this is known as link trunking in other environments). This extra connectivity can be(More)
We have studied the epitaxial growth of self-assembled Ge quantum dots when a submonolayer of carbon is deposited on a Ge wetting layer (WL) prior to the growth of the dots. Using atomic-force microscopy combined with optical techniques like Raman and ellipsometry, we performed a systematic study of the role played by thermally activated Si interdiffusion(More)
