This paper presents results of a voluntary contribution mechanism experiment with partial communication. We found that the trend of mean investments depended on whether a communication network was connected or not and on how fast all subjects could share information. When each subject could communicate with two other subjects and the network was connected,(More)
BACKGROUND Primary endovascular reconstruction with flow diversion represents a fundamental paradigm shift in the technique of endovascular aneurysm treatment. Unlike coil embolization, often there remains residual post-procedural filling within the aneurysm with flow diverters, the curative reconstruction presumably occurring over a period of weeks. Thus,(More)
Threshold changes associated with separating a signal source and a masking white noise source from 0 degree to 90 degrees were determined for 0.5, 1 and 8 kHz pure tones and click trains. No changes occurred for the 0.5 and 1 kHz pure tones. Masked thresholds of 8 kHz pure tones and click trains decreased linearly by 9 and 13 dB respectively as angular(More)
Many seal vocalizations consist of frequency swept tones. The signal detection thresholds of a harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) and of human listeners were measured using ascending and descending frequency swept tones at 1/3- and 1-oct bandwidths. The swept tones increased or decreased exponentially and traversed the same frequency range. The sweeps were(More)
The effects of signal onset/offset envelope on the underwater hearing thresholds of a harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) were measured. Pure-tone, 540-ms pulses at 2, 4, 8, and 16 kHz were presented as test signals. An ANOVA revealed that there were no significant differences between repeated threshold measures for abrupt onset/offset signal envelopes versus slow(More)
