Two Distinct Moral Mechanisms for Ascribing and Denying Intentionality.
(Sci Rep, 2015-12-04)
Philosophers and legal scholars have long theorized about how intentionality serves as a critical input for morality and culpability, but the emerging field of experimental philosophy has revealed a puzzling asymmetry. People ...
Examination of Endogenous Rotund Expression and Function in Developing Drosophila Olfactory System Using CRISPR-Cas9-Mediated Protein Tagging.
(G3 (Bethesda), 2015-10-23)
The zinc-finger protein Rotund (Rn) plays a critical role in controlling the development of the fly olfactory system. However, little is known about its molecular function in vivo. Here, we added protein tags to the rn locus ...
Zebra finches communicate with each other in ways that are more complex than previously thought.
Joint eQTL assessment of whole blood and dura mater tissue from individuals with Chiari type I malformation.
(BMC Genomics, 2015-01-22)
BACKGROUND: Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) play an important role in the regulation of gene expression. Gene expression levels and eQTLs are expected to vary from tissue to tissue, and therefore multi-tissue analyses ...
Male mice song syntax depends on social contexts and influences female preferences
(FRONTIERS IN BEHAVIORAL NEUROSCIENCE, 2015-04-01)
Surviving as an underrepresented minority scientist in a majority environment.
(Mol Biol Cell, 2015-11-01)
I believe the evidence will show that the science we conduct and discoveries we make are influenced by our cultural experience, whether they be positive, negative, or neutral. I grew up as a person of color in the United ...
Preschool anxiety disorders predict different patterns of amygdala-prefrontal connectivity at school-age.
(PLoS One, 2015)
OBJECTIVE: In this prospective, longitudinal study of young children, we examined whether a history of preschool generalized anxiety, separation anxiety, and/or social phobia is associated with amygdala-prefrontal dysregulation ...
Localization of Metal Electrodes in the Intact Rat Brain Using Registration of 3D Microcomputed Tomography Images to a Magnetic Resonance Histology Atlas.
Simultaneous neural recordings taken from multiple areas of the rodent brain are garnering growing interest due to the insight they can provide about spatially distributed neural circuitry. The promise of such recordings ...
Avianbase: a community resource for bird genomics.
(Genome Biol, 2015-01-29)
Giving access to sequence and annotation data for genome assemblies is important because, while facilitating research, it places both assembly and annotation quality under scrutiny, resulting in improvements to both. Therefore ...
Response to Comment on "Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds".
Mitchell et al. argue that divergence-time estimates for our avian phylogeny were too young because of an "inappropriate" maximum age constraint for the most recent common ancestor of modern birds and that, as a result, ...
