Sleep is believed to participate in memory consolidation, possibly through off-line processing of recent memory traces. In this paper, we summarize functional neuroimaging data testing this hypothesis. First, sleep deprivation disrupts the processing of recent memory traces and hampers the changes in functional segregation and connectivity which underpin the gain in performance usually observed in subjects allowed to sleep on the first post-training night. Second, experience-dependent changes in regional brain activity occur during post-training sleep. These changes are shown to be related to the processing of high-level material and to be modulated by the amount of learning achieved during the training session. These changes do not involve isolated brain areas but entire macroscopic cerebral networks. These data suggest a role for sleep in the processing of recent memory traces. [less ▲]

This paper addresses the problem of computing an exact and effective representation of the set of reachable configurations of a linear hybrid automaton. Our solution is based on accelerating the state-space exploration by computing symbolically the repeated effect of control cycles. The computed sets of configurations are represented by Real Vector Automata (RVA), the expressive power of which is beyond that of the first-order additive theory of reals and integers. This approach makes it possible to compute in finite time sets of configurations that cannot be expressed as finite unions of convex sets. The main technical contributions of the paper consist in a powerful sufficient criterion for checking whether a hybrid transformation (i.e., with both discrete and continuous features) can be accelerated, as well as an algorithm for applying such an accelerated transformation on RVA. Our results have been implemented and successfully applied to several case studies, including the well-known leaking gas burner, and a simple communication protocol with timers. [less ▲]

The aim of the project was to perform a feasibility study for possible development of freight intermodal transport links between Belgium and Bulgaria, between North and Black sea and vice versa, taking inland waterways (iww) transport mode as basic one. The key focus is assessment of benefits in adopting an intermodal manner for transferring cargo instead of the single transport mode currently in use. The paper comprises short description of trans-continental infrastructure between Belgium and Bulgaria and its abilities to serve for different transport alternatives, definitions and choice of appropriate scenarios for realising predicted cargo flows, as well as cost calculations. Comparative analysis of the considered transport alternatives has been made. The most important results obtained are transport cost evaluation and benefit assessment for investigated transport scenarios [less ▲]

High-resolution (R 60,000) spectra of the Halley-type comet 122P/1995 S1 de Vico (Period 74 years) and the ``intermediate-period" comet 153P/2002 C1 Ikeya-Zhang (P 370 yr) were obtained with the 2DCoude spectrograph at the 2.7-m Harlan J. Smith telescope of the McDonald Observatory. These comets were within 1 AU from the Sun (0.66 and 0.92 AU, respectively). The spectra display CN (0,0) bands indicating an anomalous [SUP]14[/SUP]N/[SUP]15[/SUP]N isotope ratio, in the sense that it is close to half the value in Earth's atmosphere (the so-called ``Solar system value") and about half that obtained in comet Hale-Bopp from sub-millimeter measurements on HCN, generally believed to be the main parent of CN. Similar conclusions had been reached for C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp), an ``old long-period", and for C/2000 WM1 (LINEAR), a ``young long-period" comet. As suggested by Arpigny et al. (2003), this apparent abundance anomaly points towards the existence of other unknown parent(s) of CN, with an even higher [SUP]15[/SUP]N excess. Organic compounds like those found in interplanetary dust particles (IDPs) are good candidates. The similarity between comets of different dynamical ages is pointed out. 1 Research Director FNRS (Belgium) 2 Research Associate FNRS (Belgium) [less ▲]

Within the context of the EU INCO-COPERNICUS program "Desertification in the Aral Sea Region: A study of the Natural and Anthropogenic Impacts" (Contract IAC2-CT-2000-10023), a large-scale 3D hydrodynamic model was adapted to address specifically the macroscale processes affecting the Aral Sea water circulation and ventilation. The particular goal of this research is to simulate the effect of lasting negative water balance on the 3D seasonal circulation, temperature, salinity and water-mixing fields of the Aral Sea. The original Aral Sea seasonal hydrodynamism is simulated with the average seasonal forcings corresponding to the period from 1956 to 1960. This first investigation concerns a period of relative stability of the water balance, before the beginning of the drying process. The consequences of the drying process on the hydrodynamic of the Sea will be studied by comparing this first results with the simulation representing the average situation for the years 1981 to 1985, a very low river flow period. For both simulation periods, the forcing considered are the seasonal fluctuations of wind fields, precipitation, evaporation, river discharge and salinity, cloud cover, air temperature and humidity. The meteorological forcings were adapted to the common optimum one-month temporal resolution of the available data sets. Monthly mean kinetic energy flux and surface tensions were calculated from daily ECMWF wind data. Monthly in situ precipitation, surface air temperature and humidity fields were interpolated from data obtained from the Russian Hydrological and Meteorological Institute. Monthly water discharge and average salinity of the river water were considered for both Amu Darya and Syr Darya river over each simulation periods. The water mass conservation routines allowed the simulation of a changing coastline by taking into account local drying and flooding events of particular grid points. Preliminary barotropic runs were realised (for the 1951-1960 situation, before drying up began) in order to get a first experience of the behaviour of the hydrodynamic model. These first runs provide results about the evolution of the following state variables: elevation of the sea surface, 3D fields of vertical and horizontal flows, 2D fields of average horizontal flows and finally the 3D fields of turbulent kinetic energy. The mean seasonal salinity and temperature fields (in-situ data gathered by the Russian Hydrological and Meteorological Institute) are available for the two simulated periods and will allow a first validation of the hydrodynamic model. Various satellites products were identified, collected and processed in the frame of this research project and will be used for the validation of the model outputs. Seasonal level changes measurements derived from water table change will serve for water balance validation and sea surface temperature for hydrodynamics validation. [less ▲]

Our goal is to fuse multimodality imagery to enhance image-guided neurosurgery. Images that need to be fused must be registered. Registration becomes a challenge when the imaged object deforms between the times the images to be fused are taken. This is the case when “brain-shift” occurs. We begin by describing our strategy for nonrigid registration via finite-element methods. Then, we independently discuss an image fusion strategy based on a model of the human visual system. We illustrate the operation of many components of the registration system and the operation of the fusion system. [less ▲]

The paper analyses the ability of thin-film tactile sensors in providing information during static compression tests of ‘Jonagold’ apples (Malus pumila) of different ripeness stages. Such sensors are able to measure the contact surface and the interfacial pressure distribution during compression of fruits, this latter being characterised by suitable mathematical parameters. Results of compression tests between two flat steel plates are presented. The differentiated evolution of the pressure distribution according to the fruit maturity is pointed out. Ability of the sensor in evaluating the firmness is also discussed. [less ▲]

It has been postulated that a number of central effects of ethanol are mediated through the action of its first metabolite, acetaldehyde. In particular, acetaldehyde might be involved in the anxiolytic and hedonic effects of ethanol and is therefore believed to play an important role in alcohol abuse. In agreement with this assumption, previous studies indicated that acetaldehyde is mainly reinforcing in rats, which have been shown to readily self-administer acetaldehyde both peripherally and centrally. However, the hedonic effects of acetaldehyde have never been tested in mice, and the possible amnesic and anxiolytic effects of acetaldehyde remain to be elucidated. Therefore, the present studies were aimed at characterizing the anxiolytic, hedonic and amnesic effects of acetaldehyde after its acute peripheral administration to C57BL/6J mice. The effects of intraperitoneal acetaldehyde (0-300 mg/kg) injections were assessed in several classical behavioral tests. The anxiolytic effects were tested with the elevated plus maze, the hedonic effects with the place conditioning procedure and the amnesic effects with the passive avoidance apparatus. Our results show that acetaldehyde dose-dependently altered memory consolidation as evidenced by a reduced performance in the passive avoidance test when acetaldehyde was injected immediately after training at doses between 100 and 300 mg/kg. The elevated plus-maze showed that acetaldehyde, in contrast to ethanol, does not possess anxiolytic properties. Finally, the results of the place conditioning experiment confirmed that acetaldehyde displays significant hedonic properties. The present results add further support to the role of acetaldehyde in ethanol amnesic and hedonic effects but interestingly suggest that acetaldehyde is not involved in ethanol anxiolytic effects.

Acetaldehyde, the first ethanol metabolite, was recently suggested to play a major role in many behavioral effects of ethanol. However, no studies have directly investigated the behavioral effects of acetaldehyde after acute administration. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to characterize the locomotor, hypnotic and ataxic effects of acetaldehyde in C57BL/6J mice. Various acetaldehyde doses (0-300 mg/kg) were injected intraperitoneally and their effects were investigated with several classical behavioral tests. The locomotor effects of acetaldehyde were measured in standard activity boxes. In addition, the loss of righting reflex was used to assess the hypnotic effects of acetaldehyde. Finally, the ataxic effects of acetaldehyde were studied with the horizontal wire test. The results show that acetaldehyde induced a significant hypolocomotor effect at 170 mg/kg and higher doses. In addition, the hypnotic effects of acetaldehyde were evidenced by a loss of righting reflex in doses between 170 and 300 mg/kg. However, the locomotor and hypnotic effects of acetaldehyde were very brief relative to what is observed after ethanol administration. After 170 mg/kg acetaldehyde, normal activity was recovered in less than 30 minutes and the loss of righting reflex lasted only an average of 6.14 ± 1.29 minutes after the administration of 300 mg/kg acetaldehyde, the highest testable dose before lethality. Ataxic effects were observed with lower doses that did not significantly affect locomotor activity. These results show that acetaldehyde, like ethanol, possesses sedative, hypnotic and ataxic properties and therefore indicate that the first product of ethanol metabolism might be involved in these ethanol effects.

We propose TCP-L, an improved version of TCP, equipped with a learning algorithm whose purpose is to avoid probing for additional bandwidth when the network conditions are known to be unfavourable. TCP-L learns the relationship between its current (average) one-trip delay and its current window size when congestion occurs, leading to packet loss. After the learning phase, TCP-L will only probe for bandwidth by increasing its window if, under the current network conditions (measured by the one-trip delay), this inflated window has not previously created congestion. Simulations show that after the learning phase, TCP-L reaches a much more stable throughput, while remaining TCP-friendly, which makes it usable for a larger class of applications, including some multimedia applications that will benefit from that stability. TCP-L is a simple backward compatible extension of TCP which can thus be deployed progressively. We show that there is a benefit for the Internet to deploy TCP-L, because the overall traffic becomes smoother when the proportion of TCP-L flows increases. Finally, our learning component can also be easily embedded in other unicast or multicast transport protocols. [less ▲]
