Composition Systematics in the Exoskeleton of the American Lobster, Homarus americanus and Implications for Malacostraca
Studies of biominerals from the exoskeletons of lobsters and other crustaceans report chemical heterogeneities across disparate body parts that have prevented the development of composition-based environmental proxy models. ...
Global expansion and redistribution of Aedes-borne virus transmission risk with climate change
Forecasting the impacts of climate change on Aedes-borne viruses, especially dengue, chikungunya, and Zika is a key component of public health preparedness. We apply an empirically parameterized model of viral transmission ...
Mycobacterium avium in Community and Household Water, Suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, 2010-2012
Attention to environmental sources of Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection is a vital component of disease prevention and control. We investigated MAC colonization of household plumbing in suburban Philadelphia, ...
Neuroimaging, neuromodulation, and population health: the neuroscience of chronic disease prevention
Preventable chronic diseases are the leading cause of death in the majority of countries throughout the world, and this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. The potential to offset the social, economic, and ...
Ruthenium(ii)-polypyridyl zirconium(iv) metal-organic frameworks as a new class of sensitized solar cells
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-10-16)
A series of Ru(II)L2L′ (L = 2,2′-bipyridyl, L′ = 2,2′-bipyridine-5,5′-dicarboxylic acid), RuDCBPY, -containing zirconium(IV) coordination polymer thin films have been prepared as sensitizing materials for solar cell ...
Hormones as “difference makers” in cognitive and socioemotional aging processes
Aging is associated with well-recognized alterations in brain function, some of which are reflected in cognitive decline. While less appreciated, there is also considerable evidence of socioemotional changes later in life, ...
Inferring and validating mechanistic models of neural microcircuits based on spike-train data
(Springer Nature, 2019-10-30)
The interpretation of neuronal spike train recordings often relies on abstract statistical models that allow for principled parameter estimation and model selection but provide only limited insights into underlying ...
Alexithymia as a Transdiagnostic Precursor to Empathy Abnormalities: The Functional Role of the Insula
Distorted empathic processing has been observed across multiple psychiatric disorders. Simulation theory provides a theoretical framework that proposes a mechanism through which empathy difficulties may arise. Specifically, ...
Rural trends in diagnosis and services for autism spectrum disorder
Rural communities face significant challenges regarding the adequate availability of diagnostic-, treatment-, and support-services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Specifically, a variety of factors, ...
