  • Mulgaonkar, Yash; Araki, Brandon; Koh, Je-sung; Guerrero-Bonilla, Luis; Aukes, Daniel M.; Makineni, Anurag; Tolley, Michael T.; Rus, Daniela L.; Wood, Robert J.; Kumar, Vijay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-05)
    The agility and ease of control make a quadrotor aircraft an attractive platform for studying swarm behavior, modeling, and control. The energetics of sustained flight for small aircraft, however, limit typical applications ...
  • Saxe, Rebecca R.; Young, Liane (MIT Press, 2009-04)
    Human moral judgment depends critically on “theory of mind,” the capacity to represent the mental states of agents. Recent studies suggest that the right TPJ (RTPJ) and, to lesser extent, the left TPJ (LTPJ), the precuneus ...
  • Cloutier, J.; Ambady, N.; Gabrieli, John D. E.; O'Young, Daniel (Elsevier, 2011-05)
    The current study examines the effect of violations of social expectancies on the neural substrates of person perception. In an event-related fMRI experiment, participants were presented with the photographs of either ...
  • Ghosh, Satrajit S.; Guenther, Frank H.; Perkell, Joseph S.; Cai, Shanqing (Society for Neuroscience, 2011-11)
    Within the human motor repertoire, speech production has a uniquely high level of spatiotemporal complexity. The production of running speech comprises the traversing of spatial positions with precisely coordinated articulator ...
  • Li, Junlun; Kuleli, Huseyin Sadi; Zhang, Haijiang; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2011-12)
    A new, relatively high frequency, full waveform matching method was used to study the focal mechanisms of small, local earthquakes induced in an oil field, which are monitored by a sparse near-surface network and a deep ...
  • Tian, Yuan; Ning, Jieyuan; Yu, Chunquan; Cai, Chen; Tao, Kai (Seismological Society of China, 2014-01)
    The 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, a major intraplate earthquake with Mw 7.9, occurred on the slowly deforming Longmenshan fault. To better understand the causes of this devastating earthquake, we need knowledge of the regional ...
  • Bautz, Marshall W.; Foster, Richard F.; Murray, Stephen S.; WFXT Team (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-06)
    The three X-ray imaging focal planes of the Wide-Field X-ray Telescope (WFXT) Mission will each have a field of view up to 1 degree square, pixel pitch smaller than 1 arcsec, excellent X-ray detection efficiency and spectral ...
  • Yao, Lining; DeVincenzi, Anthony; Pereira, Anna; Ishii, Hiroshi (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-07)
    We introduce FocalSpace, a video conferencing system that dynamically recognizes relevant activities and objects through depth sensing and hybrid tracking of multimodal cues, such as voice, gesture, and proximity to surfaces. ...
  • Maimone, Andrew; Wetzstein, Gordon; Hirsch, Matthew Waggener; Lanman, Douglas R.; Raskar, Ramesh; Fuchs, Henry (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013-09)
    We present a glasses-free 3D display design with the potential to provide viewers with nearly correct accommodative depth cues, as well as motion parallax and binocular cues. Building on multilayer attenuator and directional ...
  • Dooley, William C.; Vargas, Hernan I.; Fenn, Alan J.; Tomaselli, Mary Beth; Harness, Jay K. (Springer New York, 2009-12)
    Background: Preoperative focused microwave thermotherapy (FMT) is a promising method for targeted treatment of breast cancer cells. Results of four multi-institutional clinical studies of preoperative FMT for treating ...
  • Leitenstorfer, Alfred; Nelson, Keith Adam; Reimann, Klaus; Tanaka, Koichiro (Institute of Physics Publishing and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, 2014-04)
    Resulting from the availability of improved sources, research in the terahertz (THz) spectral range has increased dramatically over the last decade, leading essentially to the disappearance of the so-called 'THz gap'. While ...
  • Lecuyer, Sigolene; Stocker, Roman; Rusconi, Roberto (IOP Publishing, 2015-03)
    Bacteria are the smallest and most abundant form of life. They have traditionally been considered as primarily planktonic organisms, swimming or floating in a liquid medium, and this view has shaped many of the approaches ...
  • Li, Lan; Zhang, Ping; Wang, Wei-Ming; Lin, Hongtao; Zerdoum, Aidan B.; Geiger, Sarah J.; Liu, Yangchen; Xiao, Nicholas; Zou, Yi; Ogbuu, Okechukwu; Du, Qingyang; Jia, Xinqiao; Li, Jingjing; Hu, Juejun (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-09)
    Integrated photonics provides a miniaturized and potentially implantable platform to manipulate and enhance the interactions between light and biological molecules or tissues in in-vitro and in-vivo settings, and is thus ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Konjevod, Goran; Demaine, Martin L.; Lang, Robert J. (Springer, 2009-01)
    Folding an n ×n checkerboard pattern from a square of paper that is white on one side and black on the other has been thought for several years to require a paper square of semiperimeter n 2 [superscript 2]. Indeed, within ...
  • Abel, Zachary Ryan; Demaine, Erik D.; Demaine, Martin L.; Eisenstat, Sarah Charmian; Lynch, Jayson R.; Schardl, Tao Benjamin; Shapiro-Ellowitz, Isaac (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2011-12)
    We consider two types of folding applied to equilateral plane graph linkages. First, under continuous folding motions, we show how to reconfigure any linear equilateral tree (lying on a line) into a canonical configuration. ...
  • Jones, Kevin C.; Peng, C. S.; Tokmakoff, A. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-02)
    We provide a time- and structure-resolved characterization of the folding of the heterogeneous β-hairpin peptide Tryptophan Zipper 2 (Trpzip2) using 2D IR spectroscopy. The amide I′ vibrations of three Trpzip2 isotopologues ...
  • Hemachandra, Sachithra Madhaw; Kollar, Thomas Fleming; Roy, Nicholas; Teller, Seth (IEEE Robotics & Automation Society, 2011-05)
    We describe a robotic tour-taking capability enabling a robot to acquire local knowledge of a human-occupied environment. A tour-taking robot autonomously follows a human guide through an environment, interpreting the ...
  • Ackerman, Joshua; Shapiro, Jenessa R.; Neuberg, Steven L.; Maner, Jon K.; Becker, D. Vaughn; Kenrick, Douglas T. (Sage Publications, 2009-07)
    Does seeing a scowling face change your impression of the next person you see? Does this depend on the race of the two people? Across four studies, White participants evaluated neutrally expressive White males as less ...
  • Ypodimatopoulos, Polychronis; Lippman, Andrew B. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-04)
    We leverage the ubiquity of bluetooth-enabled devices and propose a decentralized, web-based architecture that allows users to share their location by following each other in the style of Twitter. We demonstrate a prototype ...
  • Tian, Hanqin; Lu, Chaoqun; Melillo, Jerry M.; Ren, Wei; Huang, Yao; Xu, Xiaofeng; Liu, Mingliang; Zhang, Chi; Chen, Guangsheng; Pan, Shufen; Liu, Jiyuan; Reilly, John M. (IOP Publishing, 2012-10)
