  • We were surprised to find that amygdala neurons not only learn the value of objects from social observation but actually use this information to simulate a partner's decisions. (cam.ac.uk)
  • Until now, however, it was unknown whether amygdala neurons also contribute to advanced social cognition, such as simulating others' decisions. (cam.ac.uk)
  • These neurons first compared the reward values of the partner's choice options before signalling the partner's likely choice, consistent with a simulated decision process. (cam.ac.uk)
  • Authors believe that these changes were consistent with pathological alterations in locus coeruleus neurons in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease, demonstrating that this animal model can simulate closely this pathological process observed clinically. (medindia.net)
  • behavior
  • If it's a demonstration of awareness in terms of outward behavior or understanding and responding to processed information, then that's already been 'simulated' in at least basic / minor ways by programs and robotics. (sciforums.com)
  • closely
  • We recognise that this is a very broad concept since virtually any activity set up to provide a learning experience for our students simulates some aspects of reality as closely as possible, but also simplifies reality by cutting out aspects which would otherwise be distracting. (edu.au)
  • oxygen
  • The Altipower Pro kit has you hold a mask to your face and rebreath your exhaled gas, thus progressively reducing your inspired fraction of oxygen to simulate altitude. (summitpost.org)
  • study
  • In this study we analyze the effect of a simulated microgravity and a hypergravity environment during the process of planarian regeneration and embryogenesis. (hindawi.com)
  • Microbes behave and evolve in response to their environment and to properly study them it's important to simulate common places where microbes gather in great variety. (medgadget.com)
  • Ian Marcus, a recent PhD graduate from the University of California, Riverside, built a replica human colon, along with a septic tank and simulated groundwater, to study how microbes interact at the macro level. (medgadget.com)
  • The findings in this study clearly suggest that to gain insight into the fate of pathogens, cells should be grown and analyzed under conditions simulating those of the environment in which the pathogens are present. (medgadget.com)
  • In their study, De Simone and Arroyo simulated euglenid species with different shapes and locomotion methods, based chiefly on cell body deformation and swelling, to describe in detail the mechanics and characteristics of the movements. (kurzweilai.net)
  • human
  • A new device developed at University of Huddersfield in England replicates some aspects of the human gut in order to simulate how a proposed medication will absorb into the body. (medgadget.com)
  • process
  • Simulating others' decisions is a sophisticated cognitive process that is rooted in social learning. (cam.ac.uk)
  • So the operator of the power plant agreed with the Department of Structural Integrity at Bay Zoltan Institute for Logistics and Production Engineering (BAY-LOGI) to simulate the manufacturing process to better understand the characteristics of the welded joint. (mscsoftware.com)
  • By simulating a diffusion process in discrete form, the end point of semi-contours suggests the boundary nodes of a WSN. (hindawi.com)

  • The introduction of E. coli O157:H7 into the simulated systems elicited a shift in the structures and phenotypic cell characteristics of the microbial communities. (medgadget.com)
  • Linking microbial community structure to function in representative simulated systems. (medgadget.com)
  • Electro 6.2 for 2D Electric Field Analysis lets users simulate devices such as high-voltage shielding, transformers, insulators and bushings, transmission lines, lightning arrestors, and pulsed-power systems. (machinedesign.com)
  • We believe the correct approach is to use simulated ground truth data with models as close as possible to the systems being studied and including the models of measurement. (springer.com)
  • complex
  • IIa-inhibitor simulated by setting parameter k43 to zero as this parameter encodes IIa-Inhibitor complex dissocation rate. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • means
  • We demonstrate that simulated microgravity by means of the random positioning machine (RPM) set at a speed of 60 °/s but not at 10 °/s produces the dead of planarians. (hindawi.com)
  • For the ASLAV simulator, that means a "motion platform" that simulates working in a moving vehicle is not necessary. (theregister.co.uk)
  • data
  • By saying ground truth data we imply that we have access to the complete state of the system for any simulated moment, that is, we can access any variable, such as membrane potential, transmembrane current passing through any channel type, complete set of spike times, etc. (springer.com)
  • devices
  • It s a unique, interactive workshop that gives participants the opportunity to perform everyday tasks while outfitted with devices that simulate the physical and mental difficulties caused by dementia. (constantcontact.com)
  • actually
  • The game doesn't actually simulate very much traffic, and it cheats like crazy to keep the number of simulated cars to a minimum As a programmer, I can totally understand this. (shamusyoung.com)
  • uses
  • An art installation in Coney Island that uses robots to simulate waterboarding, a torturous interrogation tactic that's been used on detainees at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay detention center, is creating a national stir as it raises public awareness about the controversial practice. (techworld.com.au)
  • accuracy
  • This simulates with great accuracy the perception of being in the cockpit of a real aeroplane, but the trainee-pilot does not get killed by 'crashing' the aircraft. (edu.au)
  • common
  • Then such requires either relational structure and activity alone to be responsible for yielding those experiences (IOW, type of substrate is irrelevant, whether biological or technological) or the systematic manipulation of electrical properties in that context (as that's what actual brains and the simulated brains riding on electronic circuitry would have in common).
