Dynamics of photoexcited carriers and spins in InAsP ternary alloys
(AIP Publishing, 2013-06)
The recent rapid progress in the field of spintronics involves extensive measurements of carrier and spin relaxation dynamics in III-V semiconductors. In addition, as the switching rates in devices are pushed to higher ...
TNF alpha Modulates Cardiac Conduction by Altering Electrical Coupling between Myocytes
Background: Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha) upregulation during acute inflammatory response has been associated with numerous cardiac effects including modulating Connexin43 and vascular permeability. This may in ...
Regret Expression and Social Learning Increases Delay to Sexual Gratification
Objective Modification and prevention of risky sexual behavior is important to individuals’ health and public health policy. This study employed a novel sexual discounting task to elucidate the effects of social learning ...
The adhesion function of the sodium channel beta subunit (beta 1) contributes to cardiac action potential propagation
Computational modeling indicates that cardiac conduction may involve ephaptic coupling - intercellular communication involving electrochemical signaling across narrow extracellular clefts between cardiomyocytes. We ...
EvoCor: a platform for predicting functionally related genes using phylogenetic and expression profiles
The wealth of publicly available gene expression and genomic data provides unique opportunities for computational inference to discover groups of genes that function to control specific cellular processes. Such genes are ...
Stuck in Time: Negative Income Shock Constricts the Temporal Window of Valuation Spanning the Future and the Past
Insufficient resources are associated with negative consequences including decreased valuation of future reinforcers. To determine if these effects result from scarcity, we examined the consequences of acute, abrupt changes ...
