Studies on the involvement of the rat hippocampus in classical fear conditioning have focused mainly on the dorsal hippocampus and conditioning to a context. However, the ventral hippocampus has intimate connections with the amygdala and the nucleus accumbens, which are involved in classical fear conditioning to explicit and contextual cues. Consistently, a(More)
RATIONALE Functional imaging studies have revealed overactivity of the hippocampus in schizophrenic patients. Neuropathological data indicate that hyperactivity of excitatory hippocampal afferents and decreased hippocampal GABA transmission contribute to this overactivity. In rats, excitation of the ventral hippocampus, e.g. by NMDA, results in(More)
In this paper, frequency-domain relay processing in a two-hop transmission system is investigated. The relay is constrained to be " non-regenerative " ; that is, the relay is only allowed to perform symbol-by-symbol memoryless transformation of its received signals. Multicarrier modulation, e.g., orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), is(More)
Previous studies on hippocampal involvement in classical fear conditioning mainly focused on the dorsal hippocampus and conditioning to a context. However, in line with the strong interconnectivity of the ventral hippocampus with amygdala and nucleus accumbens, more recent studies indicated an even more global role for the ventral hippocampus in fear(More)
To determine the role of the migrant population in the transmission of tuberculosis (TB), we investigated the distribution and magnitude of TB in permanent residents and migrant populations of Beijing, People's Republic of China, from 2000 through 2006. An exploratory spatial data analysis was applied to detect the "hot spots" of TB among the 2 populations.(More)
— This paper studies a variant of the classical problem of " writing on dirty paper " in which the sum of the input and the interference, or dirt, is multiplied by a random variable that models resizing, known to the decoder but not to the encoder. The achievable rate of Costa's dirty paper coding (DPC) scheme is calculated and compared to the case of the(More)
—In this paper, a multihop underwater acoustic line network, which consists of a series of equal-distance hops connected by relay transceivers in a tandem, is considered. Messages are originated as coded packets from a source node at one end, relayed sequentially hop by hop (decoded and re-encoded), and finally received by a destination node at the other(More)
