  • Koshimizu, Eriko; Imamura, Shintaro; Qi, Jie; Toure, Jamal; Valdez Jr., Delgado M.; Carr, Christopher E.; Hanai, Jun-ichi; Kishi, Shuji (Public Library of Science, 2010-03)
    Background: Mutations that disrupt the conversion of prelamin A to mature lamin A cause the rare genetic disorder Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome and a group of laminopathies. Our understanding of how A-type lamins ...
  • Mazzoni, Esteban O.; Mahony, Shaun; Iacovino, Michelina; Morrison, Carolyn A.; Mountoufaris, George; Closser, Michael; Whyte, Warren Anthony; Young, Richard A.; Kyba, Michael; Gifford, David K.; Wichterle, Hynek (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-11)
    The study of developmentally regulated transcription factors by chromatin immunoprecipitation and deep sequencing (ChIP-seq) faces two major obstacles: availability of ChIP-grade antibodies and access to sufficient number ...
  • Miyagawa, Shigeru; Berwick, Robert C. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013-02)
    We propose a novel account for the emergence of human language syntax. Like many evolutionary innovations, language arose from the adventitious combination of two pre-existing, simpler systems that had been evolved for ...
  • Kirksey, S. Eben; Helmreich, Stefan (American Anthropological Association, 2010-11)
    Anthropologists have been committed, at least since Franz Boas, to investigating relationships between nature and culture. At the dawn of the 21st century, this enduring interest was inflected with some new twists. An ...
  • Shikano, Yutaka; Chisaki, Kota; Segawa, Etsuo; Konno, Norio (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    Quantum walks are powerful tools not only for constructing the quantum speedup algorithms but also for describing specific models in physical processes. Furthermore, the discrete time quantum walk has been experimentally ...
  • Yankowitz, Matthew; Xue, Jiamin; Cormode, Daniel; Sanchez-Yamagishi, Javier; Watanabe, K.; Taniguchi, T.; Jarillo-Herrero, Pablo; Jacquod, Philippe; LeRoy, Brian J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-03)
    The Schrödinger equation dictates that the propagation of nearly free electrons through a weak periodic potential results in the opening of bandgaps near points of the reciprocal lattice known as Brillouin zone boundaries1. ...
  • Wang, J.; Carvalho, Pedro M. S.; Kirtley Jr., James L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-01)
    Emergency reconfiguration can improve distribution systems' reliability by enabling load transfer among substations. Previous studies, although present its operation strategies, seldom explore emergency reconfiguration's ...
  • Vahey, Michael D.; Voldman, Joel (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2011)
    Colloidal particles placed in an energy landscape interact with each other, giving rise to complex dynamic behavior that affects the ability to process and manipulate suspensions of these particles. Propagating across ...
  • Ouellette, Nicholas T.; Kelley, Douglas (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-01)
    Collective animal behaviour occurs at nearly every biological size scale, from single-celled organisms to the largest animals on earth. It has long been known that models with simple interaction rules can reproduce qualitative ...
  • Flint, Rebecca; Lee, Patrick A. (American Physical Society, 2013-11)
    We introduce the idea of emergent lattices, where a simple lattice decouples into two weakly coupled lattices as a way to stabilize spin liquids. In LiZn[subscript 2]Mo[subscript 3]O[subscript 8], the disappearance of 2/3 ...
  • Faulkner, Thomas; Liu, Hong; McGreevy, John; Vegh, David (American Physical Society, 2011-06)
    Gravity solutions dual to d-dimensional field theories at finite charge density have a near-horizon region, which is AdS2×Rd-1. The scale invariance of the AdS2 region implies that at low energies the dual field theory ...
  • Schnorr, Jan Markus; Swager, Timothy Manning (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-11)
    On the basis of their unique electrical and mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have attracted great attention in recent years. A diverse array of methods has been developed to modify CNTs and to assemble them ...
  • Mahlstein, Irina; Hegerl, Gabriele; Solomon, Susan (American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
    The global average temperature of the Earth has increased, but year-to-year variability in local climates impedes the identification of clear changes in observations and human experience. For a signal to become obvious in ...
  • Mellios, Nikolaos; Sur, Mriganka (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-04)
    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs conserved throughout evolution whose perceived importance for brain development and maturation is increasingly being understood. Although a plethora of new discoveries have ...
  • Laplante, Mathieu; Sabatini, David M. (Elsevier Ltd., 2009-12)
    Lipid biosynthesis is essential for the maintenance of cellular homeostasis. The lipids produced by cells (glycerolipids, fatty acids, phospholipids, cholesterol, and sphingolipids) are used as an energy source/reserve, ...
  • Artemiadis, Panagiotis; Kyriakopoulos, Kostas J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers / IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, 2010-01)
    As robots come closer to humans, an efficient human-robot-control interface is an utmost necessity. In this paper, electromyographic (EMG) signals from muscles of the human upper limb are used as the control interface ...
  • Cesqui, Benedetta; Tropea, Peppino; Micera, Silvestro; Krebs, Hermano Igo (BioMed Central Ltd, 2013-07)
    Background: Several studies investigating the use of electromyographic (EMG) signals in robot-based stroke neuro-rehabilitation to enhance functional recovery. Here we explored whether a classical EMG-based patterns ...
  • Artemiadis, Panagiotis; Kyriakopoulos, Kostas J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    Human-robot control interfaces have received increased attention during the past decades. With the introduction of robots in everyday life, especially in providing services to people with special needs (i.e., elderly, ...

  • Picard, Rosalind W. (SAGE Publications, 2010-06)
    Emotion research will leap forward when its focus changes from comparing averaged statistics of self-report data across people experiencing emotion in laboratories to characterizing patterns of data from individuals and ...
