High-sensitivity rod photoreceptor input to the blue-yellow color opponent pathway in macaque retina.
(Nat Neurosci, 2009-09)
Small bistratified cells (SBCs) in the primate retina carry a major blue-yellow opponent signal to the brain. We found that SBCs also carry signals from rod photoreceptors, with the same sign as S cone input. SBCs exhibited ...
Response decision processes and externalizing behavior problems in adolescents.
(Dev Psychopathol, 2002)
Externalizing behavior problems of 124 adolescents were assessed across Grades 7-11. In Grade 9, participants were also assessed across social-cognitive domains after imagining themselves as the object of provocations portrayed ...
Parents' campaigns to reduce their children's conduct problems: Interactions with temperamental resistance to control
(European Journal of Developmental Science, 2008)
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 ...
Native Seychelles tortoises or Aldabran imports? The importance of radiocarbon dating for ancient DNA studies
(Amphibia Reptilia, 2005-03-01)
Safety profile of L-arginine infusion in moderately severe falciparum malaria.
(PLoS One, 2008-06-11)
BACKGROUND: L-arginine infusion improves endothelial function in malaria but its safety profile has not been described in detail. We assessed clinical symptoms, hemodynamic status and biochemical parameters before and after ...
Open access in a spatially delineated artisanal fishery: The case of Minahasa, Indonesia
(Environment and Development Economics, 2007-02-01)
The effects of economic development on the exploitation of renewable resources are investigated in settings where property rights are ill defined or not enforced. This paper explores potential conservation implications from ...
Consistency of financial interest disclosures in the biomedical literature: the case of coronary stents.
(PLoS One, 2008-05-07)
BACKGROUND: Disclosure of authors' financial interests has been proposed as a strategy for protecting the integrity of the biomedical literature. We examined whether authors' financial interests were disclosed consistently ...
Working at the interface of phylogenetics and population genetics: a biogeographical analysis of Triaenops spp. (Chiroptera: Hipposideridae).
(Mol Ecol, 2007-02)
New applications of genetic data to questions of historical biogeography have revolutionized our understanding of how organisms have come to occupy their present distributions. Phylogenetic methods in combination with divergence ...
Gene expression signatures of radiation response are specific, durable and accurate in mice and humans.
(PLoS One, 2008-04-02)
BACKGROUND: Previous work has demonstrated the potential for peripheral blood (PB) gene expression profiling for the detection of disease or environmental exposures. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We have sought to determine the ...
