  • Tagnaouti, Nadia; Loebrich, Sven; Heisler, Frank F; Pechmann, Yvonne; Fehr, Susanne; De Arcangelis, Adele; Georges-Labouesse, Elisabeth; Adams, Josephine C; Kneussel, Matthias; Loebrich, Sven (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-05)
    Background: The kelch repeat protein muskelin mediates cytoskeletal responses to the extracellular matrix protein thrombospondin 1, (TSP1), that is known to promote synaptogenesis in the central nervous system (CNS). ...
  • Li, Nuo; DiCarlo, James (Society for Neuroscience, 2012-05)
    Neurons at the top of primate ventral visual stream [inferior temporal cortex (IT)] have selectivity for objects that is highly tolerant to variation in the object's appearance on the retina. Previous nonhuman primate ...
  • van der Sluijs, Peter; Kapitein, Lukas C.; Jaarsma, Dick; Rehmann, Holger; Klumperman, Judith; Heck, Albert J. R.; Monti, Maria; Govers, Roland; Oorschot, Viola; Dortland, Bjorn R.; van Vlijmen, Thijs; Wulf, Phebe S.; Sanchez-Martinez, Emma; Popa, Ioana; Hoogenraad, Casper C.; Futai, Kensuke; Sheng, Morgan Hwa-Tze (Public Library of Science, 2010-01)
    The endosomal pathway in neuronal dendrites is essential for membrane receptor trafficking and proper synaptic function and plasticity. However, the molecular mechanisms that organize specific endocytic trafficking routes ...

    This study employed simultaneous neuroimaging with positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to demonstrate the relationship between changes in receptor occupancy measured by PET ...
  • Seung, E.; Dugast, A.; Dudek, Phebe Helena Melania; Mattoo, H.; Vrbanac, V.; Tivey, T.; Murooka, T.; Cariappa, A.; Luster, A. D.; Pillai, S.; Tager, A. M. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-09)
    Background: In BLT (bone marrow-liver-thymus) humanized mice, human thymocytes are educated by autologous human thymic tissue, resulting in functional human T cells capable of rapidly selecting for CTL escape mutations ...
  • Bernstein, Aron M.; Holstein, Barry R. (American Physical Society, 2013-01)
    A fundamental property of QCD is the presence of the chiral anomaly, which is the dominant component of the π[superscript 0]→γγ decay rate. Based on this anomaly and its small (≃4.5%) chiral correction, a prediction of the ...
  • Walker, M.; van Nieuwenhuizen, Gerrit Jan; Surrow, Bernd; Sakuma, Tai; Redwine, Robert P.; Milner, Richard G.; Leight, William Axel; Kocoloski, Adam Philip; Jones, Christopher LaDon; Hoffman, A. M.; Corliss, Ross Cameron; Betancourt, Michael Joseph; Balewski, Jan T. (American Physical Society, 2009-10)
    The results of midrapidity (0<y<0.8) neutral pion spectra over an extended transverse momentum range (1<p[subscript T]<12 GeV/c) in √(s[subscript NN])=200 GeV Au+Au collisions, measured by the STAR experiment, are presented. ...
  • Monroe, Jocelyn (IOP Publishing, 2008-05)
    Neutrino-nucleus coherent scattering cross sections can be as large as 10[superscript −39] cm[superscript 2], while current dark matter experiments have sensitivities to WIMP coherent scattering cross sections several ...
  • Conrad, Janet (IOP Publishing, 2013-12)
    This paper explores some of the questions that connect the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and neutrino experiments. What is the origin of mass? What is the meaning of flavor? Is there direct evidence of new forces or particles? ...
  • Conrad, Janet (American Institute of Physics, 2010-03)
    The construction of a high energy (~100 GeV), sign-selected neutrino beam opens exciting opportunities to search for beyond-standard-model physics as well as to make valuable QCD measurements. Such a beam can be produced ...
  • Crossfield, Ian J. M.; Hansen, Brad M. S.; Harrington, Joseph; Cho, James Y. -K.; Deming, Drake; Menou, Kristen; Seager, Sara (IOP Publishing, 2010-10)
    We report the detection of 24 μm variations from the planet-hosting υ Andromedae system consistent with the orbital periodicity of the system's innermost planet, υ And b. We find a peak-to-valley phase curve amplitude of ...
  • Hohaus, T.; Trimborn, D.; Kiendler-Scharr, A.; Gensch, I.; Laumer, W.; Kammer, B.; Andres, S.; Boudries, H.; Smith, Kenneth A.; Worsnop, D. R.; Jayne, J. T. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2010-10)
    In many environments organic matter significantly contributes to the composition of atmospheric aerosol particles influencing its properties. Detailed chemical characterization of ambient aerosols is critical in order to ...
  • Koert, Peter; Wukitch, Stephen James; Beck, William K.; Doody, Jeffrey; Lin, Yijun; Mucic, Ned (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We have developed a design for a new rotated 4-strap ICRF antenna. The design is based on a modification of the existing C-Mod antennas with the antenna rotated 10deg such that the entire structure is perpendicular to total ...

  • Allanore, Antoine; Yin, Lan; Sadoway, Donald Robert (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-05)
    Molten oxide electrolysis (MOE) is an electrometallurgical technique that enables the direct production of metal in the liquid state from oxide feedstock and compared with traditional methods of extractive metallurgy offers ...
  • Lazic, P.; Dujmic, Denis; Formaggio, Joseph A; Abraham, H.; Stefancic, H. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-12)
    We demonstrate nearly approximation-free electrostatic calculations of micromesh detectors that can be extended to any other type of micropattern detectors. Using a newly developed Boundary Element Method called Robin Hood ...
  • Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-05)
    We put forward a new approach to mechanism design, and exemplify it via a new mechanism guaranteeing significant revenue in unrestricted combinatorial auctions. Our mechanism (1) succeeds in a new and very adversarial ...
  • Niu, Sidi; Golowich, Steven E.; Ingle, Vinay K.; Manolakis, Dimitris G. (SPIE, 2013-12)
    We propose an algorithm for standoff quantification of chemical vapor plumes from hyperspectral imagery. The approach is based on the observation that the quantification problem can be easily solved in each pixel with the ...
  • Rivas, Juan M.; Shafran, John S.; Perreault, David J.; Wahby, Riad S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2006-03)
    This document proposes two new architectures for switched-mode dc–dc power conversion. The proposed architectures enable dramatic increases in switching frequency to be realized while preserving features critical in practice, ...
