Quantification of the position and depth of the flexor hallucis longus groove in euarchontans, with implications for the evolution of primate positional behavior.
(American journal of physical anthropology, 2017-06)
On the talus, the position and depth of the groove for the flexor hallucis longus tendon have been used to infer phylogenetic affinities and positional behaviors of fossil primates. This study quantifies aspects of the flexor ...
A new fully automated approach for aligning and comparing shapes.
(Anatomical record (Hoboken, N.J. : 2007), 2015-01)
Three-dimensional geometric morphometric (3DGM) methods for placing landmarks on digitized bones have become increasingly sophisticated in the last 20 years, including greater degrees of automation. One aspect shared by ...
To grow or not to grow: nutritional control of development during Caenorhabditis elegans L1 arrest.
It is widely appreciated that larvae of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans arrest development by forming dauer larvae in response to multiple unfavorable environmental conditions. C. elegans larvae can also reversibly arrest ...
Influence of network topology and data collection on network inference.
(Pac Symp Biocomput, 2003)
We recently developed an approach for testing the accuracy of network inference algorithms by applying them to biologically realistic simulations with known network topology. Here, we seek to determine the degree to which ...
A comparison of temperament in nonhuman apes and human infants.
(Dev Sci, 2011-11)
The adaptive behavior of primates, including humans, is often mediated by temperament. Human behavior likely differs from that of other primates in part due to temperament. In the current study we compared the reaction of ...
Altered diffusion tensor imaging measurements in aged transgenic Huntington disease rats.
(Brain Struct Funct, 2013-05)
Rodent models of Huntington disease (HD) are valuable tools for investigating HD pathophysiology and evaluating new therapeutic approaches. Non-invasive characterization of HD-related phenotype changes is important for monitoring ...
Navigating the devious course of evolution: the importance of mechanistic models for identifying eco-evolutionary dynamics in nature.
(Am Nat, 2013-05)
In proposing his genetic feedback mechanism, David Pimentel was one of the first biologists to argue that the reciprocal interplay of ecological and evolutionary dynamics is an important process regulating population dynamics ...
Evolutionary Divergence of Gene and Protein Expression in the Brains of Humans and Chimpanzees.
(Genome Biol Evol, 2015-07-10)
Although transcriptomic profiling has become the standard approach for exploring molecular differences in the primate brain, very little is known about how the expression levels of gene transcripts relate to downstream protein ...
The PsychENCODE project.
(Nat Neurosci, 2015-12)
Event memory: A theory of memory for laboratory, autobiographical, and fictional events.
(Psychol Rev, 2015-01)
An event memory is a mental construction of a scene recalled as a single occurrence. It therefore requires the hippocampus and ventral visual stream needed for all scene construction. The construction need not come with ...
