  1. Forced swimming is a behavioural stress model increasingly used to investigate the neurocircuitry of stress responses. Although forced swim stress clearly is a psychological stressor (anxiety, panic), its physical aspects are often neglected. There…
  2. A crystal structure suggests four water molecules are present in the binding cavity of thapsigargin in sarco/endoplasmic reticulum calcium ATPase (SERCA). Computational chemistry indicates that three of these water molecules mediate an extensive…
  3. The development of next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms spawned an enormous volume of data. This explosion in data has unearthed new scalability challenges for existing bioinformatics tools. The analysis of metagenomic sequences using…
  4. Land-use changes involve important economic and environmental effects with implications for international trade, global climate change, wildlife, and other policy issues. We use an econometric model to identify factors driving land-use change in the…
  5. We examine the use of arterial spin labeling (ASL) in normal brains of rats and humans to measure perfusion (F) and capillary permeability surface area product (PS) using a previously described two-compartment model. We investigate the experimental…
  6. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the treatment packages (combinations of interventions) used to treat postural control and mobility problems for patients with stroke. METHOD: A convenience sample of 74 physiotherapists from 34…
  7. We use the 2003 Consumer Expenditure Survey and emissions estimates from an input-output model based on the 1997 US economy to estimate the incidence of a price on carbon induced by a cap-and-trade program or carbon tax in the context of the US.We…
  8. Radiation induced bystander effects and adaptive responses are two phenomena that modulate cellular responses to low doses of ionizing radiation. Bystander effects generally exaggerate the effects of low doses of radiation by eliciting detrimental…
  9. Background: Women tend to access medical help for a myocardial infarction later than men and are at a disproportionate risk of dying or of suffering disability as a consequence. Co-morbidity is associated with delay but little is known how this…
  10. In South Africa pressure is increasing to improve the quantity and quality of eucalypt wood being produced from the existing forestry land base, and to identify species that would enable profitable forestry on land currently considered marginal. In…
  11. The present paper finds that shift work is associated with severe sleepiness on the night shift and to some extent on the morning shift. This sleepiness is at least as severe as that seen in hypersomnia and is associated with a strongly increased…
