Political scientists have conducted only limited systematic research on the consequences of war for civilian populations. Here we argue that the civilian suffering caused by civil war extends well beyond the period of active warfare. We examine these longer-term effects in a cross-national (1999) analysis of World Health Organization new fine-grained data(More)
A periodic signal can be perfectly predicted far into the future since it perfectly repeats every period. There is always some variation in the waveform over time for signals which are labeled as periodic but which are not truly deterministic. A formal definition is presented in this paper for such a varying periodic signal and the properties of such a(More)
EEG and field potential rhythms established in the cortex and thalamus may accommodate the propagation of seizures. This article describes the interaction between thalamus and cortex during pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) seizures in rats with and without prior treatment with ethosuximide (ESM), a well-known antiepileptic drug (AED) that raises the threshold for(More)
OBJECTIVE Anterior thalamus (AN) has been shown to mediate seizures in both focal and generalized models. Specific regional increase in AN serotonergic activity was observed following AN-DBS in our pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) rodent model of acute seizures, and this increase may inhibit seizures and contribute to the mechanism of anticonvulsant DBS.
