Environmental variability and the initiation of dispersal: turbulence strongly increases seed release. (1/10)

Dispersal is a critical process in ecology. It is an important biological driver of, for example, invasions, metapopulation dynamics, spatial pattern formation and pathogen movement. Much is known about the effect of environmental variability, including turbulence, on dispersal of diaspores. Here, we document experimentally the strong but under-explored influence of turbulence on the initiation of dispersal. Flower heads of two thistle species (Carduus nutans and Carduus acanthoides) with ripe seeds were exposed to series of laminar and turbulent air flows of increasing velocity in a wind tunnel. Seed release increased with wind speeds for both laminar and turbulent flows for both species. However, far more seeds were released, at significantly lower wind speeds, during turbulent flows. These results strongly suggest a need for more quantitative studies of abscission in the field, as well as dispersal models that incorporate variability in the diaspore release phase.  (+info)

Seed release by invasive thistles: the impact of plant and environmental factors. (2/10)

Dispersal is a key process in biological studies of spatial dynamics, but the initiation of dispersal has often been neglected, despite strong indications that differential timing of dispersal can significantly affect dispersal distances. To investigate which plant and environmental factors determine the release of plumed seeds by the invasive thistles Carduus acanthoides and Carduus nutans, we exposed 192 flower heads of each species to increasing wind speeds in a full-factorial wind tunnel experiment with four air flow turbulence, three flower head wetness and two flower head temperature levels. The number of seed releases was highest under dry and turbulent conditions and from heads that had already lost a considerable number of seeds, but was not affected by flower head size, head angle or temperature. Inspection of the trials on video showed that higher wind speeds were needed to meet the seed release threshold in laminar flows and for C. acanthoides heads that had been wet for a longer time. Species differences were minimal, although seed release was more sensitive to lower levels of turbulence in the larger-headed and more open C. nutans heads. Knowledge of seed release biases towards weather conditions favourable for long-distance dispersal improves our understanding of the spread of invaders and allows managers to increase the efficiency of their containment strategies by applying them at crucial times.  (+info)

Protection of apigenin against kainate-induced excitotoxicity by anti-oxidative effects. (8/10)

Apigenin (5,7,4'-trihydroxyflavone) is a principal ingredient of Cirsium japonicum. These experiments were performed to determine whether apigenin has neuroprotective effects against kainic acid (KA)-induced excitotoxicity in vitro and in vivo. Intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of apigenin (25, 50 mg/kg) decreased the seizure scores induced by KA injection (40 mg/kg, i.p.) in mice. In addition, the convulsion onset time was significantly delayed by apigenin administration. Moreover, we found that apigenin blocked KA-induced seizure-form electroencephalogram (EEG) discharge activity in the brain cortex. In hippocampal cells, apigenin inhibited KA-induced excitotoxicity in a dose-dependent manner as measured by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. To study the possible mechanisms underlying the in vitro neuroprotective effects of apigenin against KA-induced cytotoxicity, we also examined the effect of apigenin on intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) elevations in cultured hippocampal neurons and found that apigenin treatment dose-dependently inhibited intracellular ROS elevation. The remarkable reduction of glutathione (GSH) levels induced by KA in hippocampal tissues was reversed by apigenin in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, similar results were obtained after pretreatment with free radical scavengers such as trolox and dimethylthiourea (DMTU). Finally, after confirming the protective effect of apigenin in hippocampal CA3 region, we found apigenin is an active compound in KA-induced neuroprotection. These results collectively indicate that apigenin alleviates KA-induced excitotoxicity by quenching ROS as well as inhibiting GSH depletion in hippocampal neurons.  (+info)

Forms dense stands. Inhibits growth of other plants through possible allelopathy. Formed stands up to 150, 000 plants/ha in Canada (1). Flowering C. nutans strongly inhibited T. repens root growth, nodulation, and acetylene reduction. This appeared to be due to decomposition of rosette leaves. Experiments suggest that decomposing rosette leaves have a strong potential to inhibit T. repens nitrogen fixation (2). Bioassay experiments found that C. nutans inhibited germination of pasture plants, but C. nutans seedlings were not affected by their own species (3). Can colonize burned sites before other species and may prevent reestablishment of native plant community (4 ...

The humble Cnicus benedictus, a plant of waste ground and stony soil native to the Mediterranean, was a medieval panacea whose reputation survived undiminished into the Renaissance. The sixteenth-century English herbalist John Gerard notes that this wild medicinal plant of southern Europe was "diligently cherished in gardens in these Northern parts." Gerard also attests that the herb was known everywhere in Europe by the medieval Latin name Carduus benedictus; the common names by which it is known today preserve this designation: blessed or holy thistle in English, benedikten distel in German; chardon b??nit or chardon santo in French, cardo benedetto in Italian, cardo bendito in Spanish..

Dr Nisanth introduced a revolutionary concept in treating chronic disease, that is, with the use of a homeopathic anti-oxidant in combination with the administration of a deep acting anti-miasmatic remedy. He cited the case of Hepato-Cellular Carcinoma which was treated with Lycopodium ( deep acting anti-psoric) and Cardus Marianus Q [Hepatic anti-oxidant]. Over the years, Carduus Mar Q has been used as a homeopathic hepatic tonic, but only in recent years it has become evident that two of its major components protect the liver from free radical induced oxidative damage. Other remedies that can be used in the same manner as a homeopathic anti-oxidant include : Agaricus[cerebro vascular], Calendula [Local and system anti-oxidant], Capsicum, Fucus, Cuprum Met, Silymarin and Silybin [inhibits lipid peroxidation ...

Animals exhibit an extraordinary diversity of life history strategies. These realized combinations of survival, development and reproduction are predicted to be constrained by physiological limitations and by trade-offs in resource allocation. However, our understanding of these patterns is restricted to a few taxonomic groups. Using demographic data from 121 species, ranging from humans to sponges, we test whether such trade-offs universally shape animal life history strategies. We show that, after accounting for body mass and phylogenetic relatedness, 71% of the variation in animal life history strategies can be explained by life history traits associated with the fast-slow continuum (pace of life) and with a second axis defined by the distribution of age-specific mortality hazards and the spread of reproduction. While we found that life history strategies are associated with metabolic rate and ecological modes of life, surprisingly similar life history strategies can be found across the ...

Normalizing the number of proliferating cells to total granule cell number, we observe an overall exponential decline in proliferation that is chronologically equal between species and orders and independent of early developmental processes and life span. Long- and short-lived mammals differ with regard to major life history stages; at the time points of weaning, age at first reproduction and average life expectancy, long-lived primates and foxes have significantly fewer proliferating cells than rodents. Although the database for neuronal differentiation is limited, we find indications that the extent of neuronal differentiation is subject to species-specific selective adaptations. We conclude that absolute age is the critical factor regulating cell genesis in the adult hippocampus of mammals. Ontogenetic and ecological factors primarily influence the regulation of neuronal differentiation rather than the rate of cell proliferation. ...

Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B. 272:2571-2576. Interpretive Summary: Climate change has the potential to cause sweeping changes in the distribution of parasites and their hosts by altering abiotic conditions and dissolving ecological barriers. However, Determining how long-term climatic changes will affect the distributions of different parasites and pathogens at first seems a daunting task that almost defies quantification29. The U. pallikuukensis model has allowed us to identify and quantify the effects of climate warming on rates of development for critical life history stages in a pathogenic parasite. Additionally, it has indicated critical thresholds of warming (i.e., 1C) where transmission rates are likely to shift in a non-linear manner. Such models and their empirical foundations serve as powerful baselines8;10;30 that will allow ...

In late summer to early fall, stems have a loose panicle of composite flowers on branches near the top of the plant. A few to a half-dozen or so flower heads on scabrous peduncles occur on each branch. Flower heads are 1 to 2 inches across, each with up to 10 reflexed, yellow ray florets (ligules) and several to 30 fertile disk florets. Rays, rather haphazardly arranged, have a notch at the end. Disk florets consist of five-lobed, tubular extended yellow corollas that have sharply reduced green bases. Disk florets, with five stamens with white filaments and purple anthers, are tightly compressed so that they appear to be one. Stamens initially totally enclose the pistil so that, when stamens emerge from the corolla, the pistil is not evident. As a flower further matures, stamens wilt back into the corolla tube, the pistil emerges from the corolla, and the stigma becomes bifurcated (divided). Corolla tubes of matured flowers, with enclosed wilted stamens, quickly drop off the inferior ovary to ...

Long-distance dispersal (LDD) is central to species expansion following climate change, re-colonization of disturbed areas and control of pests. The current paradigm is that the frequency and spatial extent of LDD events are extremely difficult to predict.

Went to craft fair at Rivers Meet yesterday, lots of lovely items, so tempting. Got a flower head band and flower crocheted necklace for Emily, which I am sure will just get added to her collection and not worn. Also got her a little gardening bag from Hobnob and button, with little gardening gloves and a pink spade. Also loved the bags of juggling bean bags and the wigwam, but really could not buy more. Bought chutney from Carr Houses of Methley there was no apricot and amaretto jam this time, very disappointing hopefully next time, its delicious ...

These are annual or perennial herbs or subshrubs, sometimes with rhizomes. The stem is usually branching and erect to a maximum height around 80 cm. The leaves are alternately arranged. Some taxa have only basal leaves. They vary in shape. They are glandular in most species. The inflorescence is a solitary flower head. The head can have 15 or more ray florets, while some taxa lack any ray florets. They can be most any shade of yellow, orange, red, purplish, brown, white, or bicolored. They are sometimes rolled into a funnel shape. There are many tubular disc florets at the centre of the head in a similar range of colours, and usually tipped with hairs. The fruit usually has a pappus of scales ...

The composition and colour has real promise, but it looks like youve shaken the camera after youve pressed the shutter. Looking at the water this was a long exposure image - was it hand held? As a very rough rule of thumb take the focal length used and look to the nearest number as a fraction of the shutter speed needed to give a shake free image when hand held - e.g. 50mm = 1/50th sec, 100mm = 1/100th sec, 200mm = 1/200th etc ...

Long range object identi¯cation needs visual identi¯cation over large distances. However, atmospheric turbulence does hinder long range imaging. Therefore it is crucial to compensate the visual artifacts due to atmospheric turbulence. In this paper we propose a new method to compensate these turbulence e®ects, thus enabling identi¯cation at larger distances. Our method is based on applying phase diversity imaging by a wavefront modulator in free-running mode. As we have no feedback loop, we can simultaneously compensate turbulence for multiple isoplanatic angles. The wavefront modulator generates several images with known additional wave front aberrations. This extra information allows us to locally estimate the optimal wave front aberration and thus the optimal - turbulence free - image can be derived. This paper provides results on simulated data showing that this method performs well under realistic turbulence and noise conditions. Furthermore the robustness of the proposed method is ...

The species exhibits a great variety of life history patterns. It has a genetically diverged life history form called "kokanee" that lives its entire life within freshwater, but this assessment includes only anadromous populations commonly referred to as "sockeye" or "red salmon". Sockeye are born in gravel nests in rivers or lakes and the majority of life history forms rear as juveniles for one to three years in freshwater before migrating to the ocean. Some sockeye assume a river-type life history and rear in a river channel, while others are lake-type and rear in a lake environment. Primary prey during this life history stage include zooplankton and stream invertebrates. Some sea-type populations migrate within one to three months following emergence, and these make extensive use of estuaries. Most populations spend one to three years in offshore feeding areas where they grow to maturity (ca. 50-60 cm total length, 2.5-3.0 kg weight). Diet in the ocean consists primarily of zooplankton ...

Given the threats of greenhouse gas emissions and a changing climate to marine ecosystems, there is an urgent need to better understand the response of not only adult corals, which are particularly sensitive to environmental changes, but also their larvae, whose mechanisms of acclimation to both temperature increases and ocean acidification are not well understood. Brooded larvae from the reef coral Pocillopora damicornis collected from Nanwan Bay, Southern Taiwan, were exposed to ambient or elevated temperature (25 or 29 oC) and pCO2 (415 or 635 matm) in a factorial experiment for 9 days, and a variety of physiological and molecular parameters were measured. Respiration and rubisco protein expression decreased in larvae exposed to elevated temperature, while those incubated at high pCO2 were larger in size. Collectively, these findings highlight the complex metabolic and molecular responses of this life history stage and the need to integrate our understanding across multiple levels of ...

For fish fed to appetite, the two most important parameters governing growth rate are temperature and body size (Jobling, 1983). Growth usually shows a distinct optimum related to the life history stage and thermal tolerance of the species (Weatherley and Gill, 1987). For example, in Atlantic salmon, the growth rate of juveniles increased between 6°C and 15.9°C and then declined as temperature increased to 22.5°C (Elliott and Hurley, 1997). The specific growth rate of the fish decreases with increasing body size (Jobling, 1983). Several growth models have been developed that provide an estimate of instantaneous growth rate independent of the effects of temperature and scale (Ricker, 1979; Elliott and Hurley, 1997; Mooij et al., 1994; Mooij and van Ness, 1998). The multiple regression model described in the present study incorporated effects for treatment and cage, and random factors for individual growth rate (α) and individual variation in the temperature sensitivity of growth (γ). The ...

feathertop: Reproduces by seed and vegetatively by rhizomes. Seed dispersal is similar to that of crimson fountaingrass. In Australia, seedlings establish slowly and mortality is high. back to top of page. MANAGEMENT FAVORING/DISCOURAGING SURVIVAL: Early detection and hand removal of individual plants can help prevent the spread of these species. Discing kikuyugrass can expand infestations by spreading rhizome and stolon fragments. Cleaning agricultural and landscape maintenance equipment after use in infested areas can prevent the introduction of propagules to uninfested sites. Crimson fountaingrass and feathertop recover quickly after fire and may increase in density after a burn.. SIMILAR SPECIES: Unlike kikuyugrass, bermudagrass has conspicuous umbel-like flower heads, stolons typically less than 4 mm wide that are not swollen at the nodes, and blades that lack a pronounced midvein and are typically folded in bud. Crimson fountaingrass and feathertop have distinct flower heads that are ...

ABSTRACT = { Understanding how large herbivores shape plant diversity patterns is an important challenge in community ecology, especially because many ungulate populations in the northern hemisphere have recently expanded. Because species within plant communities can exhibit strong interactions (e.g., competition, facilitation), selective foraging by large herbivores is likely not only to affect the abundance of palatable species, but also to induce cascading effects across entire plant communities. To investigate these possibilities, we first tested the effects of deer browsing and soil disturbance on herbaceous plant diversity patterns in boreal forest, using standard analyses of variance. Second, we evaluated direct and indirect effects of deer browsing and soil disturbance on the small-scale richness of herbaceous taxa using a multilevel path analysis approach. The first set of analyses showed that deer browsing and soil disturbance influenced herb richness. Path analyses revealed that deer ...

Although it is patterned like a sparrow, its shape, actions, and callnotes all reveal that this bird is really a goldfinch in disguise. After nesting in the conifer woods, Pine Siskins move out into semi-open country, where they roam in twittering flocks. They often descend on fields of thistles or wild sunflowers, where they cling to the dried flower heads, eating seeds. In winter they sometimes invade southward in big numbers, with flocks coming to feeders along with American Goldfinches.
Probably the Italian cocklebur originates from North America, but it is widespread today over manifold regions all over the world. It grows preferably along roadsides, low ground, on waste places and stream banks. The flowers are monoecious and are pollinated by insects, they appear in late summer and autumn. The plant is self-fertile. Male flower heads in the upper leaf axes carry numerous flowers; females are located lower on the plant and consist of only tow flowers. Antibacterial and cytotoxic agents were found in extracts of X. italicum leaves ...
Hylotelephium spectabile, commonly known as hylotelephium, showy stonecrop, live-forever, ice plant or orpine, is a succulent herbaceous perennial which typically grows in an upright to semi-upright mound on unbranched stems typically rising to 18-24" tall. It features (a) fleshy, flat, coarsely-toothed, elliptic, opposite (sometimes in whorls of 3-4), dull green to blue-green leaves (to 3" long), (b) fleshy stems and (c) tiny, star-like, pink flowers (to 1/2" across) which bloom from late summer to frost (August-October) in dense rounded flower heads (corymbose cymes to 3-4" across). Flower color fades to burgundy brown as the flowers age. Upper leaves are sessile. This plant is native from eastern Europe to China and Japan, but has been introduced in many other parts of the world including areas of the U.S. where it has escaped gardens and naturalized in some eastern and central States including New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina, Georgia, Wisconsin and Louisiana. ...

Yard and Garden September 24, 2016. Q.. I have been concerned since spring that my yard has almost no annual NM sunflowers. We have lived in this spot for 25 years or so, and always have an abundant number of these volunteers spring up. I encourage them because they are beautiful, and provide winter food for the finches that visit. Last fall, many of them failed to bloom, with their flower heads falling over just prior to their opening. This lack of bloom last year, probably resulted from less seed to sprout this year, but what caused last falls flowers to do this? My hope is this is not related to that salt cedar beetle that was imported to defoliate the salt cedars, but the timing is suspect. Has anyone looked into what is going on? Every late summer our roads and ditches are lined with these plants, and I see almost none.. I normally rely on them to provide food for our winter birds, but it looks like I will be buying bird feeders and seed for my guests this year.. - Nancy E.. Valencia ...

Hylotelephium telephium, commonly known as stonecrop, orpine or live-forever, is a succulent herbaceous perennial which typically grows in an upright to semi-upright mound on unbranched stems rising to 18-24" tall. It is often hybridized with a similar upright species known as Hylotelephium spectabile (e.g., see H. AUTUMN JOY), but is primarily distinguished from H. spectabile by its alternate leaves (H. spectabile leaves are opposite or in whorls of 3-4). It features (a) fleshy, flat, coarsely-toothed, elliptic, alternate (but sometimes opposite on axillary shoots), dull green to blue-green leaves (to 3" long), (b) fleshy stems and (c) tiny, star-like, pink to reddish purple flowers (to 1/2" across) which bloom from late summer to frost (August-October) in dense rounded flower heads (corymbose cymes to 3-4" across). Flower color fades to burgundy brown as the flowers age. Upper leaves are sessile. Foliage and dead inflorescences often persist into winter providing some additional interest. This ...
Chaetorellia acrolophi is a species of tephritid fruit fly known as the knapweed peacock fly. It is used as an agent of biological pest control against noxious knapweeds, especially spotted knapweed (Centaurea maculosa).. The adult fly is light greenish brown with brown-banded wings and iridescent green eyes. It is 3 to 5 millimeters long.external image The female lays about 70 eggs beneath the bracts on immature flower heads. When the larva emerges from the egg a few days later it burrows into the flower head and feeds on the developing florets. As the larva grows it begins to feed on the developing seeds, often consuming the entire contents of the flower head during its two-week larval stage. It pupates inside the empty flower head.. This fly is native to Europe. It was first released as a knapweed biocontrol in the 1990s in Montana, and it is currently established in much of the western United States. It is host-specific to invasive knapweeds, preferring spotted knapweed, and has not been ...

A pseudanthium (Greek for "false flower") or flower head is a special type of inflorescence.[1] Many flowers are grouped together to form a flower-like structure. The real flowers ("florets") are generally small and greatly reduced,[2] but can sometimes be quite large (as in the sunflower flower head).. Pseudanthia are characteristic of the daisy and sunflower family (Asteraceae or Compositae). Their flowers are either ray flowers or disk flowers. The disk flowers in the center of the pseudanthium look like the centre of a normal flower. Flowers on the periphery have one large petal. This sytem is unique to this family. Either ray or disk flowers may be absent in some species: Senecio vulgaris lacks ray flowers[3] and Taraxacum officinale lacks disk flowers.[3][4] The pseudanthium has a whorl of bracts below the flowers.. At a glance, a pseudanthium (inflorescence) looks just like a normal flower, but closer inspection shows it is composed of multiple flowers. Thus, the pseudanthium represents ...
MANAGEMENT FAVORING/DISCOURAGING SURVIVAL:Mowing just before the formation of flower buds discourages survival. Mowing earlier can encourage the re-growth of flowering stems. In plants mowed after flower heads have developed, seed can mature in cut flower heads left on the ground. Heavy grazing can encourage survival because livestock selectively graze plants around distaff thistles, thereby reducing competition with other plants for light and nutrients. Distaff thistles are unlikely to establish in well-managed perennial pastures.. SIMILAR SPECIES:The annual blessed thistle [Cnicus benedictus L.] and biennial golden thistle [Scolymus hispanicus L.] are yellow-flowered thistles that may be confused with smooth or woolly distaff thistle. Unlike distaff thistles, blessed thistle has inner phyllaries with long, spiny, pinnate-lobed tips, unlobed outer phyllaries, ~ 20 pappus bristles in 2 series (inner short, outer long), and cylindrical achenes with ~ 20 prominent ribs and pale crown-like teeth on ...
Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) is a perennial, herbaceous flowering plant of the aster family, native to temperate Europe and Asia. It has been introduced to other parts of the world including North America, and in some areas has become invasive. It is also known as common tansy, bitter buttons, cow bitter, or golden buttons. Tansy is a flowering herbaceous plant with finely divided compound leaves and yellow, button-like flowers. It has a stout, somewhat reddish, erect stem, usually smooth, 50-150 cm (20-59 in) tall, and branching near the top. The leaves are alternate, 10-15 cm (3.9-5.9 in) long and are pinnately lobed, divided almost to the center into about seven pairs of segments, or lobes, which are again divided into smaller lobes having saw-toothed edges, giving the leaf a somewhat fernlike appearance. The roundish, flat-topped, button-like, yellow flower heads are produced in terminal clusters from mid-to-late summer. The scent is similar to that of camphor with hints of rosemary. The leaves ...
Human mediated transfer of non-indigenous species is considered to be a major threat to global biodiversity. The Ponto-Caspian round goby (Neogobius melanostomus), which has established populations in various regions in Eurasia and North-America, was first observed in Gulf of Gdańsk, Baltic Sea, in 1990. In this thesis the round goby is used as case study for assessing the invasion process of an alien species in to the Baltic Sea. Factors governing life history characteristics, traits that have enhanced the invasion, and ecological consequences for the Baltic Sea are assessed. Two diverging life history strategies of the round goby related to habitat were found: one to-wards early maturation and short population turnover time in sheltered areas, the other towards high growth rate and late maturation in exposed areas. Females produced two batches in average during the spawning season. Lengths of spawning season and annual fecundity of round gobies in Gulf of Gdańsk were in the same range as in ...
Grasslands dominated by Stipa tenacissima are important ecosystems in the arid and semiarid climates of western Mediterranean, where they have originated by degradation of open dry forests and shrublands. At present, although the level of exploitation in these ecosystems is very low, succession processes seem to have stopped. In this study, we explore the role of microsite and post-dispersal seed predation on the seedling emergence of two species from advanced successional stages (Rhamnus lycioides, Quercus coccifera), three species from degraded stages (Cistus clusii, Helianthemum violaceum, Anthyllis terniflora), and of the dominant species (Stipa tenacissima). Seeds of these species were sown in plots divided into two microsites: (i) under tussocks of S. tenacissima and (ii) in the bare soil between tussocks. Soil moisture was significantly higher in the tussock microsites. The interaction observed between microsite and time, reflected the slower drying process under tussocks. Seed predation ...

Self-regulation of brain activity in humans based on real-time feedback of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signal is emerging as a potentially powerful, new technique. Here, we assessed whether patients with Parkinsons disease (PD) are able to alter local brain activity to improve motor function. Five patients learned to increase activity in the supplementary motor complex over two fMRI sessions using motor imagery. They attained as much activation in this target brain region as during a localizer procedure with overt movements. Concomitantly, they showed an improvement in motor speed (finger tapping) and clinical ratings of motor symptoms (37% improvement of the motor scale of the Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale). Activation during neurofeedback was also observed in other cortical motor areas and the basal ganglia, including the subthalamic nucleus and globus pallidus, which are connected to the supplementary motor area (SMA) and crucial nodes in the pathophysiology of PD.

Goal-directed movements are characterized by sensory suppression, that is, by decreased sensitivity to tactile stimuli. In the present study, we investigated tactile suppression during movement using a complex motor task: basic 3-ball juggling. It was hypothesized that a decrease in tactile sensitivity would be observed, together with a shift in participants response bias while juggling. In a first experiment, participants had to detect a short gap in an otherwise continuous vibratory stimulus, which was delivered to their wrist under conditions of rest or else while juggling. In a second experiment, participants detected a short time gap in a continuous auditory signal, under the same conditions. In a final control experiment performed at rest, participants detected a short time gap in an auditory or tactile signal. In an additional condition, the detection of a gap in tactile stimulation was required under conditions of intramodal tactile interference. Participants were significantly less sensitive
