  • Desloge, Joseph G.; Reed, Charlotte M.; Braida, Louis D.; Delhorne, Lorraine A.; Villabona, Timothy J.; Perez, Zach (Acoustical Society of America (ASA), 2014-02)
    Temporal processing ability for the senses of hearing and touch was examined through the measurement of gap-duration discrimination thresholds (GDDTs) employing the same low-frequency sinusoidal stimuli in both modalities. ...
  • Bharadwaj, Hari M.; Verhulst, Sarah; Mehraei, Golbarg; Hickox, Ann E.; Goldberg, Hannah Rae; Liberman, M Charles; Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara G. (Society for Neuroscience, 2016-03)
    Evidence from animal and human studies suggests that moderate acoustic exposure, causing only transient threshold elevation, can nonetheless cause “hidden hearing loss” that interferes with coding of suprathreshold sound. ...
  • Huang, Samantha; Rossi, Stephanie; Ahveninen, Jyrki; Hamalainen, Matti S. (Public Library of Science, 2014-10)
    When multiple persons speak simultaneously, it may be difficult for the listener to direct attention to correct sound objects among conflicting ones. This could occur, for example, in an emergency situation in which one ...
  • Geiser, Eveline; Cyr, Abigail; Gabrieli, John D. E.; Kjelgaard, Margaret McCaughin; Christodoulou, Joanna (Springer US, 2013-12)
    Reading disability in children with dyslexia has been proposed to reflect impairment in auditory timing perception. We investigated one aspect of timing perception—temporal grouping—as present in prosodic phrase boundaries ...
  • Shazly, Tarek M.; Baker, Aaron B.; Naber, John R.; Bon, Adriana; Van Vliet, Krystyn J.; Edelman, Elazer R. (Wiley Blackwell, 2010-11)
  • Shilkrot, Roy; Maes, Patricia; Paradiso, Joseph A.; Zoran, Amit (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015-02)
    We present an augmented airbrush that allows novices to experience the art of spray painting. Inspired by the thriving field of smart tools, our handheld device uses 6DOF tracking, augmentation of the airbrush trigger, and ...
  • Fox, James G.; Xie, Meimin; Kotecha, Vijay R.; Andrade, Jon David P.; Carey, Martin C. (Wiley Blackwell (Blackwell Publishing -The Physiological Society), 2012-02)
    Cholesterol gallstones are associated with slow intestinal transit in humans as well as in animal models, but the molecular mechanism is unknown. We investigated in C57L/J mice whether the components of a lithogenic diet ...
  • Chen, Yu Fan; Liu, Miao; How, Jonathan P (2016-05)
    Developing accurate models and efficient representations of multivariate trajectories is important for understanding the behavior patterns of mobile agents. This work presents a dictionary learning algorithm for developing ...
  • Chatzizisis, Yiannis S.; Baker, Aaron B.; Sukhova, Galina K.; Koskinas, Konstantinos C.; Papafaklis, Michail I.; Beigel, Roy; Jonas, Michael; Coskun, Ahmet U.; Stone, Benjamin V.; Maynard, Charles; Shi, Guo-Ping; Libby, Peter; Feldman, Charles L.; Edelman, Elazer R.; Stone, Peter H. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer) -American Heart Association, 2011-01)
    Background—The molecular mechanisms that determine the localized formation of thin-capped atheromata in the coronary arteries remain unknown. This study tested the hypothesis that low endothelial shear stress augments the ...
  • Olberding, Simon; Yeo, Kian Peen; Nanayakkara, Suranga; Steimle, Jurgen (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-03)
    Recent technical advances allow traditional wristwatches to be equipped with high processing power. Not only do they allow for glancing at the time, but they also allow users to interact with digital information. However, ...
  • Petra, Cosmin G.; Schenk, Olaf; Lubin, Miles C.; Gäertner, Klaus (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2014-01)
    We present a scalable approach and implementation for solving stochastic optimization problems on high-performance computers. In this work we revisit the sparse linear algebra computations of the parallel solver PIPS with ...
  • Maes, Patricia; Mistry, Pranav K. (Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2009)
    The design and implementation of systems that combine both the utilities of the digital world as well as intrinsic affordances of traditional artifacts are challenging. In this paper, we present ‘Quickies’, an attempt to ...
  • Yang, W.; Akey, A. J.; Smillie, L. A.; Johnson, B. C.; McCallum, J. C.; Macdonald, D.; Aziz, M. J.; Williams, J. S.; Mailoa, Jonathan P; Buonassisi, T. (American Physical Society, 2017-12)
    Au-hyperdoped Si, synthesized by ion implantation and pulsed laser melting, is known to exhibit a strong sub-band gap photoresponse that scales monotonically with the Au concentration. However, there is thought to be a ...
  • Yang, W.; Akey, A. J.; Smillie, L. A.; McCallum, J. C.; Macdonald, D.; Aziz, M. J.; Williams, J. S.; Mailoa, Jonathan P; Johnson, Benjamin C; Buonassisi, Anthony (American Physical Society (APS), 2017-12)
    Au-hyperdoped Si, synthesized by ion implantation and pulsed laser melting, is known to exhibit a strong sub-band gap photoresponse that scales monotonically with the Au concentration. However, there is thought to be a ...
  • Schmidt, Jens Christopher; Kiyomitsu, Tomomi; Hori, Tetsuya; Backer, Chelsea B.; Fukagawa, Tatsuo; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (Rockefeller University Press, 2010-10)
    During mitosis, kinetochores play multiple roles to generate interactions with microtubules, and direct chromosome congression, biorientation, error correction, and anaphase segregation. However, it is unclear what changes ...
  • Welburn, Julie P. I.; Vleugel, Mathijs; Liu, Dan; Yates, John R., III; Lampson, Michael A.; Fukagawa, Tatsuo; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (Elsevier, 2010-05)
    Accurate chromosome segregation requires carefully regulated interactions between kinetochores and microtubules, but how plasticity is achieved to correct diverse attachment defects remains unclear. Here we demonstrate ...
  • Khoo, Justin Donald (Oxford University Press, 2015)
    In this interesting and wide-ranging book, Horgan and Potrč (hereafter, H&P) offer a case study of how to navigate the border between philosophy of language and metaphysics. On the metaphysics side, they argue for an austere ...
  • Yang, Hsin-Jung; Zeldovich, Nickolai; Devadas, Srinivas; Costan, Victor Marius (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-11)
    A major security concern with outsourcing data storage to third-party providers is authenticating the integrity and freshness of data. State-of-the-art software-based approaches require clients to maintain state and cannot ...
  • Kuldell, Natalie (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-12)
    Synthetic biology is an emerging engineering discipline that, if successful, will allow well-characterized biological components to be predictably and reliably built into robust organisms that achieve specific functions. ...
  • Sinha, Pawan; Kjelgaard, Margaret McCaughin; Gandhi, Tapan Kumar; Tsourides, Kleovoulos; Cardinaux, Annie; Pantazis, Dimitrios; Diamond, Sidney; Held, Richard M. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-10)
