    • Attenuation of inflammatory events in human intervertebral disc cells with a tumor necrosis factor antagonist. 

      Sinclair, SM; Shamji, MF; Chen, J; Jing, L; Richardson, WJ; Brown, CR; Fitch, RD; ... (8 authors) (Spine (Phila Pa 1976), 2011-07-01)
      STUDY DESIGN: The inflammatory responses of primary human intervertebral disc (IVD) cells to tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) and an antagonist were evaluated in vitro. OBJECTIVE: To investigate an ability for soluble TNF ...
    • Bayesian Spatial Quantile Regression. 

      Reich, BJ; Fuentes, M; Dunson, DB (J Am Stat Assoc, 2011-03)
      Tropospheric ozone is one of the six criteria pollutants regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act and has been linked with several adverse health effects, including mortality. ...
    • Functional evolution of mammalian odorant receptors. 

      Adipietro, KA; Mainland, JD; Matsunami, H (PLoS Genet, 2012)
      The mammalian odorant receptor (OR) repertoire is an attractive model to study evolution, because ORs have been subjected to rapid evolution between species, presumably caused by changes of the olfactory system to adapt ...
    • Functional neuroimaging of autobiographical memory. 

      Cabeza, R; St Jacques, P (Trends Cogn Sci, 2007-05)
      Functional neuroimaging studies of autobiographical memory have grown dramatically in recent years. These studies are important because they can investigate the neural correlates of processes that are difficult to study ...
    • Mechanisms of specificity in neuronal activity-regulated gene transcription. 

      Lyons, MR; West, AE (Prog Neurobiol, 2011-08)
      The brain is a highly adaptable organ that is capable of converting sensory information into changes in neuronal function. This plasticity allows behavior to be accommodated to the environment, providing an important evolutionary ...
    • Musculoskeletal symptoms among female garment factory workers in Sri Lanka. 

      Lombardo, SR; Vijitha de Silva, P; Lipscomb, HJ; Ostbye, T (Int J Occup Environ Health, 2012-07)
      OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of musculoskeletal symptoms and their association with sociodemographic risk factors among female garment factory workers in Sri Lanka. METHODS: 1058 randomly selected female garment ...
    • Stream segregation on a single electrode as a function of pulse rate in cochlear implant listeners. 

      Duran, SI; Collins, LM; Throckmorton, CS (J Acoust Soc Am, 2012-12)
      While cochlear implants (CIs) usually provide high levels of speech recognition in quiet, speech recognition in noise remains challenging. To overcome these difficulties, it is important to understand how implanted listeners ...
    • Unfolded protein response genes regulated by CED-1 are required for Caenorhabditis elegans innate immunity. 

      Haskins, KA; Russell, JF; Gaddis, N; Dressman, HK; Aballay, A (Dev Cell, 2008-07)
      The endoplasmic reticulum stress response, also known as the unfolded protein response (UPR), has been implicated in the normal physiology of immune defense and in several disorders, including diabetes, cancer, ...
