  • Peltonen, Leena (Public Library of Science, 2010-05)
    Accelerated leukocyte telomere shortening has been previously associated to self-perceived stress and psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia and mood disorders. We set out to investigate whether telomere length is ...
  • Blazquez, Carola; Lee, Jae Seung; Zegras, P. Christopher (Taylor & Francis, 2015-06)
    Objective: We examine and compare pedestrian-vehicle collisions and injury outcomes involving school-age children between 5 and 18 years of age in the capital cities of Santiago, Chile and Seoul, South Korea. Methods: We ...
  • Bonawitz, Elizabeth Baraff; van Schijndel, Tessa J.P.; Friel, Daniel; Schulz, Laura E. (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    We look at the effect of evidence and prior beliefs on exploration, explanation and learning. In Experiment 1, we tested children both with and without differential prior beliefs about balance relationships (Center Theorists, ...
  • Piantadosi, Steven Thomas; Jara-Ettinger, Julian; Gibson, Edward A. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2014-04)
    We show that children in the Tsimane', a farming-foraging group in the Bolivian rain-forest, learn number words along a similar developmental trajectory to children from industrialized countries. Tsimane' children successively ...
  • Hughes, Jennifer F.; Skaletsky, Helen; Pyntikova, Tatyana; Graves, Tina; van Daalen, Saskia K. M.; Minx, Patrick J.; Fulton, Robert S.; McGrath, Sean D.; Locke, Devin P.; Friedman, Cynthia; Trask, Barbara J.; Mardis, Elaine R.; Warren, Wesley C.; Repping, Sjoerd; Rozen, Steve; Wilson, Richard K.; Page, David C. (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-01)
    The human Y chromosome began to evolve from an autosome hundreds of millions of years ago, acquiring a sex-determining function and undergoing a series of inversions that suppressed crossing over with the X chromosome[1, ...
  • Smentek, Kristel R (2016-03)
    One of the more remarkable aspects of eighteenth-century European art is the proliferation of vases, both as physical objects and design ideas. From the illustrated volume dedicated to them in Johann Bernhard Fischer ...
  • Swaine, Michael D.; Fravel, M. Taylor (Hoover Institution, 2011-09)
    In CLM 32, we examined how both Chinese and outside observers look at China’s growing assertiveness on the international stage, that is, the purely perceptual dimensions of the issue. In CLM 34, we assessed whether, ...
  • Autor, David H.; Dorn, David; Hanson, Gordon H. (Annual Reviews, 2016-08)
    China’s emergence as a great economic power has brought an epochal shift in patterns of world trade. This shift has toppled much of the received empirical wisdom about how labor markets adjust to trade shocks. Alongside ...
  • Fravel, M. Taylor; Medeiros, Evan S. (MIT Press for the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University, 2010-09)
    After exploding its first nuclear device in 1964, China did not develop sufficient forces or doctrine to overcome its vulnerability to a first strike by the United States or the Soviet Union for more than three decades. ...
  • Dorn, David; Autor, David H.; Hanson, Gordon H. (American Economic Association, 2013-10)
    We analyze the effect of rising Chinese import competition between 1990 and 2007 on US local labor markets, exploiting cross- market variation in import exposure stemming from initial differences in industry specialization ...
  • Bosques, Carlos J.; Collins, Brian E.; Meador, James W.; Sarvaiya, Hetal; Murphy, Jennifer L.; DelloRusso, Guy; Bulik, Dorota A.; Hsu, I-Hsuan; Washburn, Nathaniel; Sipsey, Sandra F.; Myette, James R.; Raman, Rahul; Sasisekharan, Ram; Venkataraman, Ganesh; Shriver, Zachary H. (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-11)
    Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are widely used for the manufacture of biotherapeutics, in part because of their ability to produce proteins with desirable properties, including 'human-like' glycosylation profiles. For ...
  • Park, Sang-Hyug; Sim, Woo Young; Min, Byoung-Hyun; Yang, Sang Sik; Khademhosseini, Ali; Kaplan, David L. (Public Library of Science, 2012-09)
    Adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ASCs) are considered as an attractive stem cell source for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. We compared human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and hASCs ...
  • Cheung, Kerry; Velasquez-Heller, Luis Fernand; Akinwande, Akintunde Ibitayo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-06)
    We report the design, fabrication, and characterization of a new class of chip-scale quadrupole mass filter (QMF). The devices are completely batch fabricated using a wafer-scale process that integrates the quadrupole ...
  • Kheradpour, Pouya; Kellis, Manolis (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2012-09)
    Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed by high-throughput DNA sequencing (ChIP-seq) has become a valuable and widely used approach for mapping the genomic location of transcription-factor binding and histone ...
  • Hsieh, Ya-Ping; Hofmann, Mario; Farhat, Hootan; Barros, Eduardo B.; Kalbac, Martin; Kong, Jing; Liang, Chi-Te; Chen, Yang-Fang; Dresselhaus, Mildred (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-03)
    Raman spectra of isolated single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were obtained for a wide range of laser excitation energies to study the resonance excitation window of the radial breathing mode feature for members of ...
  • Waalewijn, Wouter Jonathan (American Physical Society, 2009-02)
    Anomalies have infrared and ultraviolet ingredients, and are often realized in effective theories in a nontrivial way. We study the chiral anomaly in soft collinear effective theory (SCET), where the anomaly equation has ...
  • Rajagopal, Krishna; Sadofyev, Andrey (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-10)
    We provide a holographic evaluation of novel contributions to the drag force acting on a heavy quark moving through strongly interacting plasma. The new contributions are chiral in the sense that they act in opposite ...
  • Gu, Nan; Levitov, Leonid; Rudner, Mark (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-10)
    We show that the strong coupling of pseudospin orientation and charge carrier motion in bilayer graphene has a drastic effect on transport properties of ballistic p-n-p junctions. Electronic states with zero momentum ...
  • Dresselhaus, Mildred; Nugraha, Ahmad R. T.; Sanders, G. D.; Sato, K.; Stanton, C. J. (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-11)
    We simulate the ultrafast dynamics of laser-induced coherent phonons in single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). In particular, we examine the coherent phonon amplitude of the radial breathing mode (RBM) as a function of ...
  • Perez, N.; Martinez, E.; Torres, L.; Emori, Satoru; Woo, Seong hoon; Beach, Geoffrey Stephen (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-03)
    We study the effect of the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) on current-induced magnetic switching of a perpendicularly magnetized heavy-metal/ferromagnet/oxide trilayer both experimentally and through micromagnetic ...
