Haematological and immunological characteristics of eastern hellbenders (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis alleganiensis) infected and co-infected with endo- and ectoparasites
(Oxford University Press, 2016)
Disease is among the leading causes of the global decline in amphibian populations. In North America, parasites and pathogens are among the factors implicated in precipitous population declines of the giant hellbender ...
Moire superlattices at the topological insulator Bi2Te3
(Springer Nature, 2016-02-08)
We report on the observation of complex superlattices at the surface of the topological insulator Bi2Te3. Scanning tunneling microscopy reveals the existence of two different periodic structures in addition to the Bi2Te3 ...
Negative functional coupling between the right fronto-parietal and limbic resting state networks predicts increased self-control and later substance use onset in adolescence
Recent developmental brain imaging studies have demonstrated that negatively coupled prefrontal-limbic circuitry implicates the maturation of brain development in adolescents. Using resting-state functional magnetic resonance ...

(Virginia Tech. Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, 2016-08-08)
This annual report summarizes the activities of LISA, Virginia Tech’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, during the fall and spring semesters of the 2015-16 academic year. It does not include activities ...
Measurement of theta(13) in Double Chooz using neutron captures on hydrogen with novel background rejection techniques
The Double Chooz collaboration presents a measurement of the neutrino mixing angle θ13 using reactor νe observed via the inverse beta decay reaction in which the neutron is captured on hydrogen. This measurement is based ...
LISA: Virginia Tech's Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis Annual Report 2014-15
(Virginia Tech. Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, 2016-08-05)
The 2014-15 academic year was very successful for LISA, Virginia Tech’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis. LISA statistical collaborators helped 1349 researchers around Virginia Tech for the three main ...
Harnessing the Microbiome to Prevent Fungal Infections: Lessons from Amphibians
All multicellular organisms are host to microbial symbionts that constitute the microbiome and can have significant impacts on the host, including altering development, behavior, and health . In turn, aspects of the ...
Disrupting Mosquito Reproduction and Parasite Development for Malaria Control
The control of mosquito populations with insecticide treated bed nets and indoor residual sprays remains the cornerstone of malaria reduction and elimination programs. In light of widespread insecticide resistance in ...
Spatiotemporal dissociation of brain activity underlying threat and reward in social anxiety disorder
(Oxford University Press, 2016-10-19)
Social anxiety disorder (SAD) involves abnormalities in social motivation, which may be independent of well-documented differences in fear and arousal systems. Yet, the neurobiology underlying motivational difficulties in ...
