Life-narrative and word-cued autobiographical memories in centenarians: comparisons with 80-year-old control, depressed, and dementia groups.
Centenarians provided autobiographical memories to either a request for a life narrative or a request to produce autobiographical memories to cue words. Both methods produced distributions with childhood-amnesia, ...
Imaging of musculoskeletal bacterial infections by [124I]FIAU-PET/CT.
(PLoS One, 2007-10-10)
BACKGROUND: Traditional imaging techniques for the localization and monitoring of bacterial infections, although reasonably sensitive, suffer from a lack of specificity. This is particularly true for musculoskeletal infections. ...
Production and recognition bias of stylistic sentences using a story reading task.
(J Psycholinguist Res, 2002-03)
Four experiments examined participants' ability to produce surface characteristics of sentences using an on-line story reading task. Participants read a series of stories in which either all, or the majority of sentences ...
Social and physical environments and disparities in risk for cardiovascular disease: the healthy environments partnership conceptual model.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2005-12)
The Healthy Environments Partnership (HEP) is a community-based participatory research effort investigating variations in cardiovascular disease risk, and the contributions of social and physical environments to those variations, ...
Inner speech and bilingual autobiographical memory: a Polish-Danish cross-cultural study.
Thirty years after fleeing from Poland to Denmark, 20 immigrants were enlisted in a study of bilingual autobiographical memory. Ten "early immigrators" averaged 24 years old at the time of immigration, and ten "late immigrators" ...

(Psychol Rev, 2008-10)
In the mnemonic model of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the current memory of a negative event, not the event itself, determines symptoms. The model is an alternative to the current event-based etiology of PTSD represented ...
Influence of network topology and data collection on network inference.
(Pac Symp Biocomput, 2003)
We recently developed an approach for testing the accuracy of network inference algorithms by applying them to biologically realistic simulations with known network topology. Here, we seek to determine the degree to which ...
