The organization of the efferent projections from the pontine parabrachial (pPB) area to the amygdala has been studied in the rat by using microinjections of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA-L), a sensitive and selective anterograde axonal marker, into restricted subregions of the pPB area. The results confirmed that the pPB area primarily projected(More)
The organization of efferent projections from the pontine parabrachial (pPB) area to the forebrain rostral to the central nucleus of the amygdala (Ce) was studied in the rat by using microinjections of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA-L), into subregions of the pPB area. The present study is a follow-up of a former study (Bernard et al. [1993] J.(More)
Estimation of Distribution Algorithms (EDAs) combine genetic algorithms with statistical modeling in order to learn and exploit the structure of search domains. Such algorithms work well when the EDA's statistical model matches the structure of the domain. Many EDAs use statistical models that represent domain structure with directed acyclic graphs (DAGs).(More)
In this paper we introduce The Eugenic Algorithm with Modeling (TEAM), an evolutionary search algorithm that employs statistical analysis to promote construction of high-fitness chromosomes. A model of gene/fitness correlations is automatically generated to direct the construction process. When applied to the combinatorial optimization problems of finding a(More)
OBJECTIVE The study evaluated whether the average performance of clubhouses certified by the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD) should be considered valid benchmarks for clubhouse programs. METHODS A representative sample of clubhouses more than three years old that were based on the Fountain House model participated in a 1998 mail(More)

Preface This thesis deals with large eddy simulation of turbulent combustion process in HCCI engines. The thesis is based on the first seven the publications list below [1-7]. The remaining publications are not included in this thesis and deal with large eddy simulation of turbulent non-premixed flames in model gas turbines [8], non-premixed flame in a(More)
The multifaceted complexity of real-time strategy (RTS) games forces AI systems to break down policy computation into smaller subproblems – strategic planning, tactical planning, reactive control , and others. To further simplify planning at the strategic and tactical levels, state-of-the-art automatic techniques for this task, such as case-based planning,(More)
University, for supporting animal experiment. We thank H. Ohishi for expert help in calcium imaging, Y. * Classical fear conditioning investigates how animals learn to associate environmental stimuli with an aversive event. We examined how the mechanisms of fear conditioning apply when humans learn to associate social ingroup and outgroup members with a(More)
