  • Bressloff, Neil W; Kolachalama, Vijaya Bhasker; Nair, Prasanth B. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-12)
    Background: Arterial geometry variability is inevitable both within and across individuals. To ensure realistic prediction of cardiovascular flows, there is a need for efficient numerical methods that can systematically ...
  • Sinha, Subarna; Tsang, Emily K.; Zeng, Haoyang; Meister, Michela; Dill, David L. (Public Library of Science, 2014-07)
    Boolean implications (if-then rules) provide a conceptually simple, uniform and highly scalable way to find associations between pairs of random variables. In this paper, we propose to use Boolean implications to find ...
  • Hussain, Natasha K.; Hsin, Honor; Huganir, Richard L.; Sheng, Morgan Hwa-Tze (Society for Neuroscience, 2010-09)
    Misshapen/NIKs (Nck-interacting kinases)-related kinase (MINK) and closely related TRAF2/Nck-interacting kinase (TNIK) are proteins that specifically bind to activated Rap2 and are thus hypothesized to relay its downstream ...
  • Fjell, Anders M.; Westlye, Lars T.; Amlien, Inge; Espeseth, Thomas; Reinvang, Ivar; Raz, Naftali; Agartz, Ingrid; Dale, Anders M.; Walhovd, Kristine B.; Salat, David; Greve, Doug N.; Fischl, Bruce (Society for Neuroscience, 2009-07)
    Age is associated with substantial macrostructural brain changes. While some recent magnetic resonance imaging studies have reported larger age effects in men than women, others find no sex differences. As brain morphometry ...
  • Sun, Lei; Xie, Huangming; Mori, Marcelo A.; Alexander, Ryan; Yuan, Bingbing B.; Hattangadi, Shilpa M.; Liu, Qingqing; Kahn, C. Ronald; Lodish, Harvey F. (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-07)
    Mammals have two principal types of fat. White adipose tissue primarily serves to store extra energy as triglycerides, whereas brown adipose tissue is specialized to burn lipids for heat generation and energy expenditure ...
  • Juan, Aster H.; Kumar, Roshan M.; Marx, Joseph G.; Young, Richard A.; Sartorelli, Vittorio (Elsevier, 2009-10)
    Polycomb group (PcG) proteins exert essential functions in the most disparate biological processes. The contribution of PcG proteins to cell commitment and differentiation relates to their ability to repress transcription ...
  • Medeiros, Lea Ann; Dennis, Lucas M.; Gill, Mark E.; Houbaviy, Hristo; Markoulaki, Styliani; Fu, Dongdong; White, Amy C.; Kirak, Oktay; Sharp, Phillip A.; Page, David C.; Jaenisch, Rudolf (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-08)
    Mir-290 through mir-295 (mir-290–295) is a mammalian-specific microRNA (miRNA) cluster that, in mice, is expressed specifically in early embryos and embryonic germ cells. Here, we show that mir-290–295 plays important roles ...
  • Ginzburg, Victor; Travkin, Roman; Finkelberg, Michael (Birkhäuser Basel, 2009-03)
    We compute the Frobenius trace functions of mirabolic character sheaves defined over a finite field. The answer is given in terms of the character values of general linear groups over the finite field, and the structure ...
  • Travkin, Roman (Birkhäuser Basel, 2009-04)
    The set of orbits of GL(V) in Fl(V) × Fl(V) × V is finite, and is parametrized by the set of certain decorated permutations in a work of Magyar, Weyman, and Zelevinsky. We describe a mirabolic RSK correspondence (bijective) ...
  • Artzi, Shay; Kiezun, Adam; Shomron, Noam (BioMed Central Ltd, 2008-01)
    Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs), present in most metazoans, are small non-coding RNAs that control gene expression by negatively regulating translation through binding to the 3'UTR of mRNA transcripts. Previously, experimental ...
  • Dilks, Daniel D.; Julian, Joshua B.; Kubilius, Jonas; Spelke, Elizabeth S.; Kanwisher, Nancy (Society for Neuroscience, 2011-06)
    Electrophysiological and behavioral studies in many species have demonstrated mirror-image confusion for objects, perhaps because many objects are vertically symmetric (e.g., a cup is the same cup when seen in left or right ...
  • Albrecht, Simon H.; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Reffert, Sabine; Snellen, Ignas A.G. (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-09)
    The orbits of binary stars precess as a result of general relativistic effects, forces arising from the asphericity of the stars, and forces from additional stars or planets in the system. For most binaries, the theoretical ...
  • Chen, Jacqueline; Lee, Samuel K.; Castander, Francisco-Javier; Schechter, Paul L.; Maza, Jose (IOP Publishing, 2013-05)
    The CXOCY J220132.8-320144 system consists of an edge-on spiral galaxy lensing a background quasar into two bright images. Previous efforts to constrain the mass distribution in the galaxy have suggested that at least one ...
  • Galuske, Ralf; Williams, Ziv; Pipa, Gordon; Haslinger, Robert Heinz; Ba, Demba E. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013-07)
    Ising models are routinely used to quantify the second order, functional structure of neural populations. With some recent exceptions, they generally do not include the influence of time varying stimulus drive. Yet if the ...
  • Hummel, Robert; Poduri, Sameera; Hover, Franz; Mitra, Urbashi; Sukhatme, Guarav (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    This paper considers mission design strategies for mobile robots whose task is to perform spatial sampling of a static environmental field, in the framework of compressive sensing. According to this theory, we can reconstruct ...
  • Lippard, Stephen J.; Dhara, Shanta (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-12)
    The unique glycolytic metabolism of most solid tumors, known as the Warburg effect, is associated with resistance to apoptosis that enables cancer cells to survive. Dichloroacetate (DCA) is an anticancer agent that can ...
  • Fletcher, Luke Sebastian; Teller, Seth; Olson, Edwin B.; Moore, David; Kuwata, Yoshiaki; How, Jonathan P.; Leonard, John Joseph; Miller, Isaac; Campbell, Mark; Huttenlocher, Dan; Nathan, Aaron; Kline, Frank-Robert (Springer Berlin / Heidleberg, 2009-11)
    Mid-way through the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge, MIT’s autonomous Land Rover LR3 ‘Talos’ and Team Cornell’s autonomous Chevrolet Tahoe ‘Skynet’ collided in a low-speed accident, one of the first well-documented collisions ...
  • Nabian, Nashid; Ratti, Carlo; Biderman, Assaf; Grise, Gabriel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    This paper focuses on guidelines in designing platforms for collective, location-sensitive user generated content, built upon a system that allows for locating mobile subjects within the space. The process of conceptual ...
  • Masters, Barry R.; So, Peter T. C.; Buehler, Christof; Barry, Nicholas; Sutin, Jason D.; Mantulin, William W.; Gratton, Enrico (SPIE, 2004-10)
    Two-photon excitation fluorescence microscopy allows in vivo high-resolution imaging of human skin structure and biochemistry with a penetration depth over 100 μm. The major damage mechanism during two-photon skin imaging ...
  • Graves, William S.; Brown, W.; Kaertner, Franz X.; Moncton, David E. (Elsevier, 2009-09)
    A compact X-ray source based on inverse Compton scattering of a high-power laser on a high-brightness linac beam is described. The facility can operate in two modes: at high (MHz) repetition rate with flux and brilliance ...
