    Marr’s main prediction was that parallel fiber-to-Purkinje cell synapses were strengthened during learning; in contrast, Albus postulated that the parallel fiber-to-Purkinje cell synapses would weaken (he also thought they could strengthen and that the parallel fiber-to-stellate cell synapses were also modifiable.) Albus defended his synaptic weakening argument by pointing out that the parallel fibers should be trained to emulate the post-complex spike pause and not the excitatory phase of the climbing fiber-induced complex spike, as Marr suggested. In order to emulate the post-complex spike pause, the parallel fiber synapses should weaken, and so the crucial mechanism for Albus’ theory was a weakening of the parallel fiber synapse. Thus, although they agreed that the parallel fiber-to-Purkinje cell synapse was modifiable, they disagreed over the direction of change most relevant for storing motor memories in cerebellar…

    I used the parallel format to restate and summarize these same points in the conclusion. For example, I started my speech asking how many people had heard of the quote and ended the presentation by bringing that same idea back into the conclusion.

    Spinning of Nylon Fiber: The turning of the nylon filaments is completed with dissolve turning. There are two strategies for liquefy turning: 1. Grid turning 2. Extruder turning. Lattice turning is utilized for the generation of better fibers. The nylon chips are made to fall on a hot matrix that melts the nylon pieces. The liquid nylon is pumped through a sand channel to the spinneret. The sort of fiber created relies on the quantity of gaps on the spinneret, the size and the state of the…

    Trusses are composed of straight members connected at their ends by hinged connections to form a stable configuration. When loads are applied to a truss only at the joints, forces are transmitted only in the direction of each of its members. That is, the members experience tension or compression forces, but not bending forces. Trusses have a high strength to weight ratio and consequently are used in many structures, from bridges, to roof supports, to space stations.The Pros of a Truss Bridge 1.…

    with other masking tapes from other countries, the washi-made masking tape is easier to tear off without any trace. However, its power and adhesiveness are as excellent as usual. Washi, a kind of Japanese paper, is traditionally made from inner bark of plants like paper mulberry trees because of its flexibility and length of the fibres. Nevertheless, the major fibres did not exist in Europe when paper making technology was introduced there from Asia in 12th century. Until the beginning of 18th…

    Bamboo sheets are smoother because Egyptian cotton sheets still have some fiber ends woven into the fabric. In contrast, the long strands in bamboo sheets are stretched across the entire length of the sheet. As a result, bamboo sheets don’t have any rough ends woven into the fabric making them smooth as silk. Luxurious Lastly, both Egyptian cotton and bamboo sheets are unbelievably luxurious. After learning about their soft and smooth textures, it’s easy to see why Egyptian cotton and bamboo…
