The Bingham porphyry Cu–Au–Mo deposit, Utah, may only be world-class because of substantial contributions of sulfur and metals from mafic alkaline magma to an otherwise unremarkable calc-alkaline system. Volcanic mafic alkaline rocks in the district are enriched in Cr, Ni, and Ba as well as Cu, Au, platinum group elements (PGE), and S. The bulk of the(More)
Thirty-one patients who were in coma or persistent vegetative state two weeks after sustaining a severe head injury were entered into a coma arousal programme. The coma arousal protocol called for a sequence of vigorous multisensory stimulations to be applied to the patient by a relative for up to eight hours a day for seven days a week. An independent(More)
The purposes of the investigation were to determine whether there was significant neuronal loss in dementia, and if so, whether it was general or localised, and to examine the relationship between neuronal counts, senile plaques and neurofibrillary change. Neuronal counts were made in nine cortical areas in the brains of 25 patients with senile dementia of(More)
With the goal to study the physical and chemical evolution of ices in solar-mass systems, a spectral survey is conducted of a sample of 41 low luminosity YSOs (L ∼ 0.1 − 10 L ⊙) using 5–38 µm Spitzer Space Telescope and 3–4 µm ground-based spectra. The sample is complemented with previously published Spitzer spectra of background stars and with ISO spectra(More)
Systems pharmacology modeling and pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) analysis of drug-induced effects on cardiovascular (CV) function plays a crucial role in understanding the safety risk of new drugs. The aim of this review is to outline the current modeling and simulation (M&S) approaches to describe and translate drug-induced CV effects, with an(More)
We have identified four circumstellar disks with a deficit of dust emission from their inner 15-50 AU. All four stars have F-G spectral type, and were uncovered as part of the Spitzer Space Telescope " Cores to Disks " Legacy Program Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) first look survey of ∼100 pre-main sequence stars. Modeling of the spectral energy distributions(More)
Aims. We search for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) features towards young low-mass (T Tauri) stars and compare them with surveys of intermediate mass (Herbig Ae/Be) stars. The presence and strength of the PAH features are interpreted with disk radiative transfer models exploring the PAH feature dependence on the incident UV radiation, PAH abundance(More)
