This study employed the Stroop paradigm to examine comprehension of single words in autistic children. The words of interest varied along a concrete-abstract dimension. In the Stroop paradigm, subjects are asked to name the color of ink in which color words are printed. Comprehension is indexed by the degree to which the automatic processing of words(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a condition frequently associated with esophagitis and motor abnormalities. Recent evidence suggests that proinflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin (IL)-1beta and IL-6, may be implicated because they reduce esophageal muscle contractility, but these results derive from in vitro or animal models of(More)
We describe an O(n 4 h min{log U, n 2 log n}) capacity scaling algorithm for the minimum cost submodular flow problem. Our algorithm modifies and extends the Edmonds–Karp capacity scaling algorithm for minimum cost flow to solve the minimum cost submodular flow problem. The modification entails scaling a relaxation parameter δ. Capacities are relaxed by(More)
The following multiprocessor scheduling problem was motivated by scheduling maintenance periods for aircraft. Each maintenance period is a job, and the maintenance facilities are machines. In this context, there are very few different types of maintenances performed, so it is natural to consider the problem with only a small, fixed number C of different(More)
We present a trajectory-based method with which to learn information about the qualitative role that solvent molecules play in dynamic simulations of reactions that occur in solution. A spatial grid is superimposed on the system being simulated, and average fluxes of solvent molecules between cells on the grid are calculated along reactive trajectories. The(More)
