  • Redcay, Elizabeth; Kleiner, Mario; Saxe, Rebecca R. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-05)
    When engaging in joint attention, one person directs another person's attention to an object (Initiating Joint Attention, IJA), and the second person's attention follows (Responding to Joint Attention, RJA). As such, joint ...
  • Lawson, J. Chappell H.; Lenz, Gabriel Salman; Baker, Andy; Myers, Michael (Cambridge University Press, 2010-10)
    A flurry of recent studies indicates that candidates who simply look more capable or attractive are more likely to win elections. In this article, the authors investigate whether voters' snap judgments of appearance travel ...
  • Allais, Andrea; Todadri, Senthil (American Physical Society, 2012-07)
    Loop current order has been reported in the pseudogap regime of a few cuprate systems in polarized neutron scattering experiments. Here we study several observable consequences of such order in the d-wave superconducting ...
  • Qazi, Masood; Tikeka, Mehul; Dolecek, Lara; Shah, Devavrat; Chandrakasan, Anantha P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-04)
    The impact of process variation in deep-submicron technologies is especially pronounced for SRAM architectures which must meet demands for higher density and higher performance at increased levels of integration. Due to ...
  • Jia, Xiaoting; Campos-Delgado, Jessica; Gracia-Espino, Edgar Eduardo; Hofmann, Mario; Muramatsu, Hiroyuki; Kim, Yoong Ahm; Hayashi, Takuya; Endo, Morinobu; Kong, Jing; Terrones, Mauricio; Dresselhaus, Mildred (American Vacuum Society (AVS), 2009-07)
    Here the authors report the use of either furnace heating or Joule heating to pacify the exposed graphene edges by loop formation in a novel graphitic nanoribbonmaterial, grown by chemical vapor deposition. The edge energy ...
  • Ivanov, Vsevolod; Qi, Yang; Fu, Liang (American Physical Society, 2014-02)
    We introduce and study three-dimensional quantum dimer models with positive resonance terms. We demonstrate that their ground state wave functions exhibit a nonlocal sign structure that can be exactly formulated in terms ...
  • Chen, Hongsheng; Zhang, Baile; Luo, Yu; Kemp, Brandon A.; Zhang, Jingjing; Ran, Lixin; Wu, Bae-Ian (American Physical Society, 2009-05)
    The mechanical behavior of a transformation based spherical cloak under wave illumination is derived. We show that the equatorial region of the cloak is subject to much higher stress than the polar regions, where the polar ...
  • Amendt, P. A.; Ross, J. S.; Seguin, Fredrick Hampton; Town, R. P. J.; Bettie, R.; Li, Chikang; Knauer, J. P.; Frenje, Johan A.; Rygg, J. R.; Meyerhofer, D. D.; Patel, P. K.; Landen, O. L.; Froula, O.; Petrasso, Richard D. (American Physical Society, 2009-08)
    Unique detection of electromagnetic fields and identification of field type and strength as a function of position were used to determine the nature of self-generated fields in a novel experiment with laser-generated plasma ...
  • Diop-Frimpong, Benjamin; Chauhan, Vikash P.; Krane, Stephen; Boucher, Yves; Jain, Rakesh K. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-02)
    The dense collagen network in tumors significantly reduces the penetration and efficacy of nanotherapeutics. We tested whether losartan—a clinically approved angiotensin II receptor antagonist with noted antifibrotic ...
  • Stewart, Charles H., III (New York University School of Law, 2010-09)
    Introduction: The 2000 election was a wake-up call for America, demonstrating the vulnerability of the democratic process to breakdowns of voting technology, election law, and election administration. It shamed states and ...
  • Bokhari, Sheharyar; Geltner, David M. (Wiley Blackwell, 2011-06)
    Loss aversion behavior plays a major role in the pricing of commercial properties, and it varies both across the type of market participants and across the cycle. We find that sophisticated and more experienced investors ...
  • Jaillet, Patrick; Mastin, Dana Andrew (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-12)
    We analyze losses resulting from uncertain transition probabilities in Markov decision processes with bounded nonnegative rewards. We assume that policies are precomputed using exact dynamic programming with the estimated ...
  • Christiano, Paul F.; Demaine, Erik D.; Kishore, Shaunak (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2011-08)
    We develop the first dynamic data structures that tolerate δ memory faults, lose no data, and incur only an O(δ ) additive overhead in overall space and time per operation. We obtain such data structures for arrays, linked ...
  • Roslaniec, Lukasz; Perreault, David J.; Jurkov, Alexander (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-04)
    A lossless multi-way power combining and outphasing system have recently been proposed for high-frequency inverters and power amplifiers that offers major performance advantages over traditional approaches. This paper ...
  • Zinshteyn, Boris; Gilbert, Wendy (Public Library of Science, 2013-08)
    Transfer RNA (tRNA) modifications enhance the efficiency, specificity and fidelity of translation in all organisms. The anticodon modification mcm[superscript 5]s[superscript 2]U[superscript 34] is required for normal ...
  • McCurry, Cortina L.; Shepherd, Jason Dennis; Tropea, Daniela; Wang, Kuan H.; Bear, Mark; Sur, Mriganka (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-04)
    A myriad of mechanisms have been suggested to account for the full richness of visual cortical plasticity. We found that visual cortex lacking Arc is impervious to the effects of deprivation or experience. Using intrinsic ...
  • Rao, Prakash K.; Toyama, Yumiko; Chiang, H. Rosaria; Gupta, Sumeet; Bauer, Michael; Medvid, Rostislav; Reinhardt, Ferenc; Liao, Ronglih; Krieger, Monty; Jaenisch, Rudolf; Lodish, Harvey F.; Blelloch, Robert (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer) -American Heart Association, 2009-08)
    Rationale: Heart failure is a deadly and devastating disease that places immense costs on an aging society. To develop therapies aimed at rescuing the failing heart, it is important to understand the molecular mechanisms ...
  • Lindquist, Susan; Steele, Andrew D.; Wacker, Jennifer L.; Huang, Shao-Yi; Aron, Rebecca; Lotz, Gregor P.; Nguyen, QuangVu; Giorgini, Flaviano; Roberson, Erik D.; Masliah, Eliezer; Muchowski, Paul J. (Society for Neuroscience, 2009-07)
    Endogenous protein quality control machinery has long been suspected of influencing the onset and progression of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of misfolded proteins. Huntington's disease (HD) ...
  • Krieger, Monty; Yesilaltay, Ayce; Kocher, Olivier; Pal, Rinku; Daniels, Kathleen (Public Library of Science, 2009-12)
    Background: PDZK1 is a four PDZ-domain containing protein that binds to the carboxy terminus of the HDL receptor, scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI), and regulates its expression, localization and function in a ...
