Island

A major electronic communications network that attempts to match investor orders to buy and sell NYSE, ASE, and Nasdaq National Market System and SmallCap securities. Orders that cannot be immediately matched are displayed as limit orders until matched, cancelled, or expiration. Only limit orders placed by subscribing broker-dealers are accepted by Island.

We observed significant positive correlations in bilateral BA22 (p < 0.006, left;p < 0.04, right), left BA41 (p < 0.04), left BA42 (p < 0.01), left insula (p < 0.05), and left superior temporal gyrus (p < 0.05).
In the Hb group, the Hb was stimulated continuously for at least 30 min at 50 Hz, 120 Hz, 130 Hz, or 280 Hz before and after the insula cortex was stimulated.
The following measurements were taken: (1) the temporal depth was measured as the distance from the temporal end point of the common boundary between the temporal and insular lobes to the outermost border of the temporal lobe cortex; (2) the SF depth was measured as the distance from the same point to the inner cortical table of the parietal bone; (3) the SF width was measured as the distance from the same point to the frontal end point of the common boundary between the frontal and insular lobes; (4) the uncovered insula width was measured as the minimum distance between the temporal lobe prominence and the frontal lobe prominence.
Otros estudios neurofuncionales hallaron hiperactivacion de la corteza de la insula y los cuerpos amigdalinos en pacientes con diagnostico de trastorno por estres postraumatico, pacientes con fobia social y con trastorno de ansiedad generalizada (Lorberbaum et al., 2004; Lindauer et al., 2008).
The other two are the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) and the insula, which are more specifically involved in emotion recognition, especially in more cognitive demanding tasks [16].
The OAB group showed significant increase in rCBF from the low urgency state to the high urgency state in the right and left ACC and the left insula.
The role of the insula in some epilepsies was recently investigated by means of depth electrode recordings made following Talairach's (16) stereoelectroence-phalography (SEEG) methodology.
A partir del segundo capitulo, el libro se centra en el analisis de la plaza publica y sus caracteristicas carnavalescas en el Quijote, y se va descubriendo para el lector los matices, los rostros o las transformaciones que este espacio cobra en la pluma cervantina: el espacio publico festivo de la venta-plaza, el desplazamiento carnavalesco al palacio ducal y el espacio en la insula barataria.
Individuals with multiple episodes had a higher amplitude of low-frequency waves in the left putamen, left middle frontal gyrus, and left insula. In fact, there is a positive correlation between the number of depressive episodes and the amplitude of low-frequency waves in the left brain and in the left putamen (r=0.450 p=0.021; r=0.535 p=0.004, respectively).
Results showed that in lean adolescents, glucose ingestion increased cerebral blood flow in the striatum, insula, anterior cingulate cortex and the prefrontal cortex, all of which are regions of the brain that reside in the cortico striatal-limbic circuitry undergoing significant developmental changes during adolescence, said Dr.
