Strategic allocation of attention reduces temporally predictable stimulus conflict.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2012-09)
Humans are able to continuously monitor environmental situations and adjust their behavioral strategies to optimize performance. Here we investigate the behavioral and brain adjustments that occur when conflicting stimulus ...
The frequency of involuntary autobiographical memories and future thoughts in relation to daydreaming, emotional distress, and age.
(Conscious Cogn, 2015-11)
We introduce a new scale, the Involuntary Autobiographical Memory Inventory (IAMI), for measuring the frequency of involuntary autobiographical memories and involuntary future thoughts. Using the scale in relation to other ...
Studying human fertility and environmental exposures.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-08)
The time course of segmentation and cue-selectivity in the human visual cortex.
(PLoS One, 2012)
Texture discontinuities are a fundamental cue by which the visual system segments objects from their background. The neural mechanisms supporting texture-based segmentation are therefore critical to visual perception and ...
Visual memory-deficit amnesia: a distinct amnesic presentation and etiology.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1998-04-28)
We describe a form of amnesia, which we have called visual memory-deficit amnesia, that is caused by damage to areas of the visual system that store visual information. Because it is caused by a deficit in access to stored ...
Optimizing linkage and retention to hypertension care in rural Kenya (LARK hypertension study): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.
BACKGROUND: Hypertension is the leading global risk factor for mortality. Hypertension treatment and control rates are low worldwide, and delays in seeking care are associated with increased mortality. Thus, a critical component ...
Do specialty courts achieve better outcomes for children in foster care than general courts?
(Eval Rev, 2013-02)
OBJECTIVE: This study assessed the effects of unified family and drug treatment courts (DTCs) on the resolution of cases involving foster care children and the resulting effects on school performance. METHOD: The first analytic ...
Early hematopoiesis inhibition under chronic radiation exposure in humans.
(Radiat Environ Biophys, 2010-05)
The major goal of this study was to identify and quantitatively describe the association between the characteristics of chronic (low-dose rate) exposure to (low LET) ionizing radiation and cellularity of peripheral blood ...
Renal systems biology of patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome.
(Kidney Int, 2015-10)
A systems biology approach was used to comprehensively examine the impact of renal disease and hemodialysis (HD) on patient response during critical illness. To achieve this, we examined the metabolome, proteome, ...
Effective spread and timecourse of neural inactivation caused by lidocaine injection in monkey cerebral cortex.
(J Neurosci Methods, 1997-06-06)
We studied the effective spread of lidocaine to inactivate neural tissue in the frontal cortex of the rhesus monkey. Injections of 2% lidocaine at 4 microl/min were made while units were recorded 1 or 2 mm away. To inactivate ...
