ABSTRACT: In this paper we present a short study of the ring of complex-valued arithmetic functions defined on the ring of Gaussian integers. We investigate an absolute value and the corresponding metric structure on this ring.

College students obtain far less sleep than is recommended and often report that environmental factors such as noisy residence halls impair the sleep they do get. Insufficient and poor quality sleep put college students at risk for suboptimal academic performance, poor neurocognitive functioning, and accidents. The purpose of this study was to examine whether increasing participant accountability and salience of personal health behaviors, including sleep, would improve sleep variables....
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by cognitive impairments, which may result from intrusive, traumatic memories. One factor potentially influencing the development and maintenance of intrusive memories is prefrontal cortex development, a phenomenon associated with age. The present studies examined how age influences the effects of emotional memories on rat physiology and behavior. Adolescent and adult rats were exposed to predator stress and given water maze training...
Clinical research suggests that a blunted corticosteroid response to trauma may be associated with increased risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In order to more directly test this hypothesis, we examined the influence of a blunted corticosterone response to stress on the development of PTSD-like behaviors in rats. One-month-old, male Sprague-Dawley rats were injected with metyrapone, an inhibitor or corticosterone synthesis, or vehicle prior to being...
