Acronym for Programme Français Océan et Climat dans l'Atlantique Equtorial. See Katz (1987) and Richardson and Reverdin (1987).
A deficit is 'focal' if it implies local rather than generalized underlying brain damage. Thus, the focal neurological deficit of right hemiparesis implies damage to the left motor strip or its associated nerve fibres; and the focal neuropsychological deficit of poor verbal memory implies damage to the dominant (usually left) temporal lobe. There are other deficits (eg generalized dementia) which imply generalized brain damage.
