We introduce a way to program adaptive reactive systems, using behavioral, scenario-based programming. Extending the semantics of live sequence charts with reinforcements allows the programmer not only to specify what the system should do or must not do, but also what it should try to do, in an intuitive and incremental way. By integrating scenario-based(More)
In this research we investigated the effects of 4 antipsychotic drugs with different anticholinergic components on different memory functions of schizophrenic patients. Drugs were administered in cumulative doses and memory was tested 90 min after each drug was administered. The results show that chlorpromazine and thioridazine impaired short-term verbal(More)
Three cases of leiomyosarcoma of the rectum are reported. The first patient underwent palliative surgery and died 18 months after diagnosis; local radiotherapy was not effective and chemotherapy failed as well. The second patient underwent radical surgical treatment but monetheless the tumor recurred and the patient died 37 months after diagnosis. The third(More)
We address the problem of comprehending cause and effect relationships between relatively independent behavior components of a single application. Our focus is on the paradigm of behavioral, scenario-based, programming, as captured by the language of live sequence charts (LSC) or its Java-based counterpart, BPJ. In this programming paradigm, multi-modal(More)
Twenty-two subjects, six of them obese, five latent diabetics, six overt diabetics, and five control subjects, were given a daily dietary supplement of 16 g guar gum and 10 g pectin for three successive days. Postprandial blood glucose and insulin responses to an initial standard meal and to a fiber-enriched meal given 72 h later were compared. A(More)
