The endocannabinoid anandamide [N-arachidonoylethanolamine (AEA)] is thought to function as an endogenous protective factor of the brain against acute neuronal damage. However, this has never been tested in an in vivo model of acute brain injury. Here, we show in a longitudinal pharmacological magnetic resonance imaging study that exogenously administered(More)
The concept of topology-aware grid applications is derived from parallelized computational models of complex systems that are executed on heterogeneous resources, either because they require specialized hardware for certain calculations, or because their parallelization is flexible enough to exploit such resources. Here we describe two such applications, a(More)
Scheduling of large-scale, distributed topology-aware applications requires that not only the properties of the requested machines be considered, but also the properties of the machines' interconnections. This requirement severely complicates the scheduling process, as even a matching between a single multi-processors task and available machines in a single(More)
The authors report on their experience with discal puncture in the bacteriological diagnosis of 48 infectious spondylodiscites. This technique makes it possible to obtain a bacteriological certitude in 31 cases (65 per cent): Pott's disease (40 per cent) and 12 pyogene spondylodiscites (25 per cent), with 17 punctures remaining negative, including 5(More)
