Cross-cultural variability of component processes in autobiographical remembering: Japan, Turkey, and the USA.
Although the underlying mechanics of autobiographical memory may be identical across cultures, the processing of information differs. Undergraduates from Japan, Turkey, and the USA rated 30 autobiographical memories on 15 ...
Profiling of experience-regulated proteins in the songbird auditory forebrain using quantitative proteomics.
(Eur J Neurosci, 2008-03)
Auditory and perceptual processing of songs are required for a number of behaviors in songbirds such as vocal learning, territorial defense, mate selection and individual recognition. These neural processes are accompanied ...
A molecular neuroethological approach for identifying and characterizing a cascade of behaviorally regulated genes.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2006-10-10)
Songbirds have one of the most accessible neural systems for the study of brain mechanisms of behavior. However, neuroethological studies in songbirds have been limited by the lack of high-throughput molecular resources ...
Common genetic variation and the control of HIV-1 in humans.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-12)
To extend the understanding of host genetic determinants of HIV-1 control, we performed a genome-wide association study in a cohort of 2,554 infected Caucasian subjects. The study was powered to detect common genetic variants ...
The Multiscale Systems Immunology project: software for cell-based immunological simulation.
(Source Code Biol Med, 2008-04-28)
BACKGROUND: Computer simulations are of increasing importance in modeling biological phenomena. Their purpose is to predict behavior and guide future experiments. The aim of this project is to model the early immune response ...
Beyond the Tragedy of the Commons.
(Economia delle fonti di energia e dell'ambiente, 2009)
To move beyond Hardin’s tragedy of the commons, it is fundamental to avoid falling into either of two analytical and policy traps: (1) deriving and recommending “panaceas” or (2) asserting “my case is unique.” We can move ...
The Core Challenges of Moving Beyond Garrett Hardin
(Journal of Natural Resources and Policy Research, 2009)
A partnership framework for geospatial data preservation in North Carolina
(Library Trends, 2009-07-31)
The North Carolina Geospatial Data Archiving Project (NCGDAP) is a joint project of the NC State University Libraries and the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis focusing on collection and preservation of state ...
Eco-evolutionary feedbacks in community and ecosystem ecology: interactions between the ecological theatre and the evolutionary play.
(Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci, 2009-06-12)
Interactions between natural selection and environmental change are well recognized and sit at the core of ecology and evolutionary biology. Reciprocal interactions between ecology and evolution, eco-evolutionary feedbacks, ...
