The protective role of religious coping in adolescents' responses to poverty and sexual decision-making in rural Kenya.
(J Res Adolesc, 2012-03-01)
In this study, we explored how adolescents in rural Kenya apply religious coping in sexual decision-making in the context of high rates of poverty and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Semi-structured interviews were conducted ...
Inferring Latent Structure From Mixed Real and Categorical Relational Data
We consider analysis of relational data (a matrix), in which the rows correspond to subjects (e.g., people) and the columns correspond to attributes. The elements of the matrix may be a mix of real and categorical. Each ...
Very long-term memory for prose and verse
(Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 1977-01-01)
Recalls from five passages learned by undergraduates in the course of growing up in America were obtained. Unlike passages learned in the laboratory, the recalls, while partial, were exact with no evidence of constructive ...
Multielectrode evidence for spreading activity across the superior colliculus movement map.
(J Neurophysiol, 2000-07)
The monkey superior colliculus (SC) has maps for both visual input and movement output in the superficial and intermediate layers, respectively, and activity on these maps is generally related to visual stimuli only in one ...
The role of the thalamus in motor control.
(Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2003-12)
Two characteristics of the thalamus--its apparently simple relay function and its daunting multinuclear structure--have been customarily viewed as good reasons to study something else. Yet, now that many other brain regions ...
Exploring the role of the substantia nigra pars reticulata in eye movements.
Experiments that demonstrated a role for the substantia nigra in eye movements have played an important role in our understanding of the function of the basal ganglia in behavior more broadly. In this review we explore more ...
Differentiating sensitivity of post-stimulus undershoot under diffusion weighting: implication of vascular and neuronal hierarchy.
(PLoS One, 2008-08-13)
The widely used blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) signal during brain activation, as measured in typical fMRI methods, is composed of several distinct phases, the last of which, and perhaps the least understood, is ...
Frontal eye field neurons orthodromically activated from the superior colliculus.
(J Neurophysiol, 1998-12)
Frontal eye field neurons orthodromically activated from the superior colliculus. J. Neurophysiol. 80: 3331-3333, 1998. Anatomical studies have shown that the frontal eye field (FEF) and superior colliculus (SC) of monkeys ...
The frontal eye field sends predictively remapped visual signals to the superior colliculus
(Journal of Vision, 2003-12-01)
We perceive a stable visual world even though saccades often move our retinas. One way the brain may achieve a stable visual percept is through predictive remapping of visual receptive fields: just before a saccade, the ...
Association between cell-mediated demyelination and astrocyte stimulation.
