A framework for integrating the songbird brain.
(J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol, 2002-12)
Biological systems by default involve complex components with complex relationships. To decipher how biological systems work, we assume that one needs to integrate information over multiple levels of complexity. The songbird ...
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 ...
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" ...
A brief history of research synthesis.
(Eval Health Prof, 2002-03)
Science is supposed to be cumulative, but scientists only rarely cumulate evidence scientifically. This means that users of research evidence have to cope with a plethora of reports of individual studies with no systematic ...
ARFGAP1 promotes the formation of COPI vesicles, suggesting function as a component of the coat.
(J Cell Biol, 2002-10-14)
The role of GTPase-activating protein (GAP) that deactivates ADP-ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1) during the formation of coat protein I (COPI) vesicles has been unclear. GAP is originally thought to antagonize vesicle formation ...
Scd5p and Clathrin Function Are Important for Cortical Actin Organization, Endocytosis, and Localization of Sla2p in Yeast
(Molecular Biology of the Cell, 2002-08-01)
A pathway in primate brain for internal monitoring of movements.
It is essential to keep track of the movements we make, and one way to do that is to monitor correlates, or corollary discharges, of neuronal movement commands. We hypothesized that a previously identified pathway from brainstem ...
Hospital Ownership Conversions: Defining the Appropriate Public Oversight Role
(Forum for Health Economics & Policy, 2002-01)
This paper reviews recent empirical evidence on the effects of hospital ownership conversions on quality of care and provision of public goods, such as uncompensated care, and presents new results on these topics based on ...
Analysis of the mouse transcriptome based on functional annotation of 60,770 full-length cDNAs.
Only a small proportion of the mouse genome is transcribed into mature messenger RNA transcripts. There is an international collaborative effort to identify all full-length mRNA transcripts from the mouse, and to ensure ...
Activation in mesolimbic and visuospatial neural circuits elicited by smoking cues: evidence from functional magnetic resonance imaging.
(Am J Psychiatry, 2002-06)
OBJECTIVE: The authors sought to increase understanding of the brain mechanisms involved in cigarette addiction by identifying neural substrates modulated by visual smoking cues in nicotine-deprived smokers. METHOD: Event-related ...
