  • 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, ...
  • Ebert, Margaret S.; Sharp, Phillip A. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-10)
    Recently, a non-coding RNA expressed from a human pseudogene was reported to regulate the corresponding protein-coding mRNA by acting as a decoy for microRNAs (miRNAs) that bind to common sites in the 3′ untranslated regions ...
  • 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, ...
  • Artemiadis, Panagiotis; Kyriakopoulos, Kostas J. (2010-02)

  • Zhao, Nan; Dublon, Gershon; Gillian, Nicholas; Dementyev, Artem; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-06)
    We present a wearable system that uses ambient electromagnetic interference (EMI) as a signature to identify electronic devices and support proxemic interaction. We designed a low cost tool, called EMI Spy, and a software ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bruneau, Emile Gabriel; Jacoby, Nir; Saxe, Rebecca R. (Elsevier, 2015-04)
    Brain regions in the “pain matrix”, can be activated by observing or reading about others in physical pain. In previous research, we found that reading stories about others' emotional suffering, by contrast, recruits a ...
  • Golub, Todd R.; Schreiber, Stuart L.; Gould, Robert J.; Schenone, Monica; Ong, Shao-En; Margolin, Adam A.; Carr, Steven A. (Public Library of Science, 2009-10)
    Background: Advances in mass spectrometry-based proteomics have enabled the incorporation of proteomic data into systems approaches to biology. However, development of analytical methods has lagged behind. Here we describe ...
  • Thies, William; Amarasinghe, Saman P. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-09)
    Stream programs represent an important class of high-performance computations. Defined by their regular processing of sequences of data, stream programs appear most commonly in the context of audio, video, and digital ...
  • Carter, Joshua Adam; Winn, Joshua Nathan (American Astronomical Society, 2010-02)
    We show that the gas giant exoplanet HD 189733b is less oblate than Saturn, based on Spitzer Space Telescope photometry of seven transits. The observablemanifestations of oblatenesswould have been slight anomalies during ...
  • Madhusudhan, Nikku; Winn, Joshua Nathan (American Astronomical Society, 2009-03)
    We present a search for Trojan companions to 25 transiting exoplanets. We use the technique of Ford & Gaudi, in which a difference is sought between the observed transit time and the transit time that is calculated by ...
  • Hewitt, Jacqueline N.; Barry, N.; Beardsley, A. P.; Bowman, Judd D.; Briggs, Frank H.; Carroll, P.; Greenhill, Lincoln J.; Hazelton, B. J.; Hernquist, L.; Hurley-Walker, N.; Jacobs, Daniel C.; Kim, H. S.; Kittiwisit, P.; Lenc, Emil; Line, J.; Loeb, Abraham; McKinley, B.; Mitchell, Daniel A.; Morales, Miguel F.; Offringa, A. R.; Paul, S.; Pindor, B.; Pober, J. C.; Procopio, P.; Riding, J.; Sethi, S.; Shankar, N. Udaya; Subrahmanyan, R.; Sullivan, I.; Thyagarajan, Nithyanandan; Tingay, S. J.; Trott, C.; Wayth, R. B.; Webster, R. L.; Wyithe, S.; Bernardi, G.; Cappallo, Roger J.; Deshpande, Ajay A.; Johnston-Hollitt, M.; Kaplan, David L.; Oberoi, Divya; Ord, S. M.; Prabu, T.; Srivani, K. S.; Williams, A.; Dillon, Joshua Shane; Neben, Abraham Richard; Tegmark, Max Erik; de Oliveira-Costa, Angelica; Ewall-Wice, Aaron Michael; Feng, Lu; Lonsdale, Colin John; McWhirter, Stephen R.; Morgan, Edward H.; Williams, Christopher Leigh (American Physical Society, 2015-06)
    The separation of the faint cosmological background signal from bright astrophysical foregrounds remains one of the most daunting challenges of mapping the high-redshift intergalactic medium with the redshifted 21 cm line ...
  • Seneff, Stephanie; Davidson, Robert M.; Liu, Jingjing (MDPI AG, 2012-11)
    Autism is a condition characterized by impaired cognitive and social skills, associated with compromised immune function. The incidence is alarmingly on the rise, and environmental factors are increasingly suspected to ...
  • Mohtashemi, Mojdeh (Public Library of Science, 2010-01)
    The re-emergence of tuberculosis (TB) in the mid-1980s in many parts of the world, including the United States, is often attributed to the emergence and rapid spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired ...
  • Beesemyer, J. Clark; Rhodes, Donna H.; Ross, Adam Michael (Elsevier, 2012-03)
    Maintaining system performance in the presence of uncertainties in design and operating environments is both challenging and increasingly essential as system lifetimes grow longer. In response to perturbations brought on ...
  • Grinberg, Victoria; Steiner, James F.; McClintock, Jeffrey E.; Pottschmidt, Katja; Rothschild, Richard E.; Garcia, Javier A. (IOP Publishing, 2016-02)
    We have developed a correction tool to improve the quality of Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) High Energy X-ray Timing Experiment (HEXTE) spectra by employing the same method we used earlier to improve the quality of ...
  • McClintock, Jeffrey E.; Steiner, James F.; Grinberg, Victoria; Garcia, Javier A.; Remillard, Ronald Alan (IOP Publishing, 2014-09)
    We fitted all of the several hundred RXTE PCA spectra of the Crab individually to a simple power-law model; the total number of counts in the composite spectrum is >10[superscript 9]. We then used the spectrum of residuals ...
