  • Ofen, Noa; Chai, Xiaoqian; Schuil, Karen D. I.; Whitfield-Gabrieli, Susan; Gabrieli, John D. E. (Society for Neuroscience, 2012-07)
    Neuroanatomical and psychological evidence suggests prolonged maturation of declarative memory systems in the human brain from childhood into young adulthood. Here, we examine functional brain development during successful ...
  • Hu, Juejun; Musgraves, J. David; Carlie, Nathan; Zdyrko, Bogdan; Luzinov, Igor; Richardson, Kathleen; Agrawal, Anuradha Murthy; Kimerling, Lionel C. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2011-01)
    In this paper, we review the design, processing, and characterization of novel planar infrared chemical sensors. Chalcogenide glasses are identified as the material of choice for sensing given their wide infrared transparency ...
  • Gabrieli, John D. E.; McRae, Kateri; Gross, James J.; Weber, Jochen; Robertson, Elaine R.; Sokol-Hessner, Peter; Ray, Rebecca D.; Ochsner, Kevin N. (Oxford University Press, 2012-01)
    The ability to use cognitive reappraisal to regulate emotions is an adaptive skill in adulthood, but little is known about its development. Because reappraisal is thought to be supported by linearly developing prefrontal ...
  • Morten, Christopher J.; Byers, Jeffery A.; Van Dyke, Aaron R.; Vilotijevic, Ivan; Jamison, Timothy F. (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2009-09)
    This tutorial review traces the development of endo-regioselective epoxide-opening reactions in water. Templated, water-promoted epoxide-opening cyclization reactions can offer rapid access to subunits of the ladder ...
  • Kleiman, Steven L. (American Society for Microbiology, 2008-06)
    This historical introduction is in two parts. The first is reprinted with permission from "A century of mathematics in America, Part II," Hist. Math., 2, Amer. Math. Soc., 1989, pp.543-585. Virtually no change has been ...

    SiGe based Focal Plane Arrays offer a low cost alternative for developing visible- NIR focal plane arrays that will cover the spectral band from 0.4 to 1.6 microns. The attractive features of SiGe based IRFPA's will take ...
  • Bower, Diana Morgan; Prather, Kristala L. Jones (BioMed Central Ltd, 2012-08)
    Background: There has been renewed interest in biopharmaceuticals based on plasmid DNA (pDNA) in recent years due to the approval of several veterinary DNA vaccines, on-going clinical trials of human pDNA-based therapies, ...
  • Kalia, Amy Ashwin; Lesmes, Luis Andres; Dorr, Michael; Gandhi, Tapan Kumar; Chatterjee, Garga; Ganesh, Suma; Bex, Peter J.; Sinha, Pawan (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-01)
    Visual plasticity peaks during early critical periods of normal visual development. Studies in animals and humans provide converging evidence that gains in visual function are minimal and deficits are most severe when ...
  • Dragoi, George; Tonegawa, Susumu (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2013-12)
    Prior experience accelerates acquisition of novel, related information through processes like assimilation into mental schemas, but the underlying neuronal mechanisms are poorly understood. We investigated the roles that ...
  • Sood, Ashok K.; Richwine, Robert A.; Puri, Yash R.; DiLello, Nicole Ann; Hoyt, Judy L.; Dhar, Nibir; Balcerak, Raymond S.; Bramhall, Thomas G. (SPIE, 2010-08)
    SiGe based focal plane arrays offer a low cost alternative for developing visible- near-infrared focal plane arrays that will cover the spectral band from 0.4 to 1.6 microns. The attractive features of SiGe based foal plane ...
  • Alabi, Christopher A.; Sahay, Gaurav; Langer, Robert; Anderson, Daniel Griffith (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-08)
    One important barrier facing the delivery of short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) via synthetic nanoparticles is the rate of nanoparticle disassembly. However, our ability to optimize the release kinetics of siRNAs from ...
  • Thomason, Moriah E.; Race, Elizabeth; Burrows, Brittany; Glover, Gary H.; Gabrieli, John D. E.; Gabrieli, Susan (MIT Press Journals, 2010-05)
    A core aspect of working memory (WM) is the capacity to maintain goal-relevant information in mind, but little is known about how this capacity develops in the human brain. We compared brain activation, via fMRI, between ...
  • Coppi, Bruno; Roveta, G.; Fehling, D.; Meitner, S.; Foust, C. R.; Combs, S. K.; Baylor, L. R.; Ronci, G.; Capobianchi, M.; Migliori, S.; Bombarda, F.; Frattolillo, A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    ENEA and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are collaborating on the development of a four barrel, two-stage pneumatic injector for the Ignitor experiment, featuring two innovative concepts: (i) the proper shaping of the ...

Robin (Public Library of Science, 2012-12)
    The natural diversity of plant metabolism has long been a source for human medicines. One group of plant-derived compounds, the monoterpene indole alkaloids (MIAs), includes well-documented therapeutic agents used in the ...
  • Hu, Qing; Kumar, Sushil; Qin, Qi; Williams, Benjamin S.; Reno, John L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
