This five-layered model consisting of 180 neurons is aimed at simulating some elementary functions of primary visual cortex of mammals in form detection. Its main achievements are: 1. Detection of points, lines, simple geometric figures in the V1 2. Abstraction of 19 different qualities of geometric figures 3. Simulation and rational explanation of processing of peripheral stimuli in the V1, explanation of mechanism of origin of visual ERPs, including P300 wave 4. Simulation and explanation of the nature and build up of the cognitive function within V1 and its possible relation to long-term memory 5. The model is based partly on Hebb-type synapses, illustrates the role of neuronal assemblies, sheds light on the functional relationship of excitatory and inhibitory neurons, in their conformity with special tasks of different cortical layers.
We determined a new one-dimensional P-wave velocity model for the territory of Hungary based on the first arrival times of local earthquakes. During the computations 910 P-wave arrival data of 86 events from the time period between 1985 and 2010 have been used. The applied methodology is a combination of a genetic algorithm based procedure and an iterative linearized joint inversion technique. The preferred velocity profile has been chosen from the best models based on the data of a series of controlled explosions.The resulting flat-layered model consists of three crustal layers and a half-space representing the uppermost mantle. The crustal compressional velocities vary in the range of 5.3-6.3 km/s, while the uppermost mantle velocity was found to be 7.9 km/s. The Moho is located at an average depth of 26 km.Additionally, the Vp/Vs ratio was calculated by the Wadati-method, which gave a value of 1.74±0.05.

The prediction of the adsorption behavior of natural composite materials was studied by a single mineral approach. The adsorption
of U(VI) on single minerals such as goethite, hematite, kaolinite and quartz was fully modeled using the diffuse-layer model
in various experimental conditions. A quasi-thermodynamic database of surface complexation constants for single minerals was
established in a consistent manner. In a preliminary work, the adsorption of a synthetic mixture of goethite and kaolinite
was simulated using the model established for a single mineral system. The competitive adsorption of U(VI) between goethite
and kaolinite can be well explained by the model. The adsorption behavior of natural composite materials taken from the Koongarra
uranium deposit (Australia) was predicted in a similar manner. In comparison with the synthetic mixture, the prediction was
less successful in the acidic pH range. However, the model predicted well the adsorption behavior in the neutral to alkaline
pH range. Furthermore, the model reasonably explained the role of iron oxide minerals in the adsorption of U(VI) on natural
U(VI) sorption on kaolinite was studied as functions of contact time, pH, U(VI) concentration, solid-to-liquid ratio (m/V) by using a batch experimental method. The effects of sulfate and phosphate on U(VI) sorption were also investigated. It
was found that the sorption kinetics of U(VI) can be described by a pseudo-second-order model. Potentiometric titrations at
variable ionic strengths indicated that the titration curves of kaolinite were not sensitive to ionic strength, and that the
pH of the zero net proton charge (pHPZNPC) was at 6.9. The sorption of U(VI) on kaolinite increased with pH up to 6.5 and reached a plateau at pH >6.5. The presence
of phosphate strongly increased U(VI) sorption especially at pH <5.5, which may be due to formation of ternary surface complexes
involving phosphate. In contrast, the presence of sulfate did not cause any apparent effect on U(VI) sorption. A double layer
model was used to interpret both results of potentiometric titrations and U(VI) sorption on kaolinite.

MX-80 bentonite was characterized by XRD and FTIR in detail. The sorption of Th(IV) on MX-80 bentonite was studied as a function
of pH and ionic strength in the presence and absence of humic acid/fulvic acid. The results indicate that the sorption of
Th(IV) on MX-80 bentonite increases from 0 to 95% at pH range of 0–4, and then maintains high level with increasing pH values.
The sorption of Th(IV) on bentonite decreases with increasing ionic strength. The diffusion layer model (DLM) is applied to
simulate the sorption of Th(IV) with the aid of FITEQL 3.1 mode. The species of Th(IV) adsorbed on bare MX-80 bentonite are
consisted of “strong” species
at pH > 4. Similar species of Th(IV) adsorbed on FA bound MX-80 bentonite are observed as on FA bound MX-80 bentonite. The
sorption isotherm is simulated by Langmuir, Freundlich and Dubinin–Radushkevich (D–R) models, respectively. The sorption mechanism
of Th(IV) on MX-80 bentonite is discussed in detail.
