1 Mitchell, Joyce A.Nanoinformatics: a new area of research in nanomedicineAbstract: Over a decade ago, nanotechnologists began research on applications of nanomaterials for medicine. This research has revealed a wide range of different challenges, as well as many opportunities. Some of these challenges are strongly related to informatics issues, dealing, for instance, wit...2012-01-01
2 Jaskowski, Troy D.Neuronal uptake of anti-Hu antibody, but not anti-Ri antibody, leads to cell death in brain slice culturesBackground: Anti-Hu and anti-Ri antibodies are paraneoplastic immunoglobulin (Ig)G autoantibodies which recognize cytoplasmic and nuclear antigens present in all neurons. Although both antibodies produce similar immunohistological labeling, they recognize different neuronal proteins. Both antibodies...2014-01-01
3 Wen, MingNeighborhood socioeconomic status and BMI differences by immigrant and legal status: Evidence from UtahWe build on recent work examining the BMI patterns of immigrants in the US by distinguishing between legal and undocumented immigrants. We find that undocumented women have relative odds of obesity that are about 10 percentage points higher than for legal immigrant women, and their relative odds of ...2014-01-01
4 Balasubramonian, RajeevNDC: Analyzing the impact of 3D-stacked memory+logic devices on MapReduce workloadsWhile Processing-in-Memory has been investigated for decades, it has not been embraced commercially. A number of emerging technologies have renewed interest in this topic. In particular, the emergence of 3D stacking and the imminent release of Micron's Hybrid Memory Cube device have made it more pra...2014-01-01
5 Minteer, Shelley D.Nickel cysteine complexes as anodic electrocatalysts for fuel cellsCompared to platinum, nickel is an inexpensive catalyst that can oxidize methanol in alkaline media. There is a desire to increase nickel loading during electrodeposition for improved performance. In this paper, a nickel cysteine complex (NiCys) is used as the precursor for electrodeposition on glas...2014-01-01
6 Minteer, Shelley D.Nickel-DNA complexes: bioelectrocatalysis or not?Alkaline fuel cells (AFC) are low temperature, quick-to-start devices that can achieve 50% operating efficiency. Low cost alternatives to platinum group electrocatalysts, which allow for direct reformation are desired. Nickel electrocatalysts are highly active in alkaline for the oxidation of fuels....2013-01-01
7 Cieri, RobertNew insight into the evolution of the vertebrate respiratory system and the discovery of unidirectional airflow in iguana lungsThe generally accepted framework for the evolution of a key feature of the avian respiratory system, unidirectional airflow, is that it is an adaptation for efficiency of gas exchange and expanded aerobic capacities, and therefore it has historically been viewed as important to the ability of birds ...2014-11-17
8 Mathews, V. JohnNeural decoding using a nonlinear generative model for brain-computer interfaceKalman filters have been used to decode neural signals and estimate hand kinematics in many studies. However, most prior work assumes a linear system model, an assumption that is almost certainly violated by neural systems. In this paper, we show that adding nonlinearities to the decoding algorithm ...2014-01-01
9 Gale, Bruce K.New approaches to bridge nerve gaps: Development of a novel drug-delivering nerve conduitContemporary bridging techniques for repairing nerve gaps caused by trauma require autologous nerve grafts, which are difficult to harvest and handle and result in significant donor site deficit. Several nerve conduits with axon growth-enhancing potential have been proposed, developed and tested ove...2012-01-01
10 Garber, SarahNeurosurgical complications of direct thrombin inhibitors - catastrophic hemorrhage after mild traumatic brain injury in a patient receiving dabigatranDabigatran etexilate is an oral anticoagulant that acts as a direct, competitive thrombin inhibitor. Large randomized clinical trials have shown higher doses of dabigatran (150 mg taken twice daily) to be superior to warfarin in terms of stroke and systemic embolism rates in patients with nonvalvula...2012-01-01
11 Maloney, Thomas N.Occupation and fertility on the frontier: Evidence from the state of UtahBACKGROUND Most of what we know about fertility decline in the United States comes from aggregate (often state or county level) data sources. It is difficult to identify variation in fertility change across socio-economic classes in such data, although understanding such variation would provide deep...2014-01-01
12 Regehr, JohnOffline compression for on-chip RAMWe present offline RAM compression, an automated source-to-source transformation that reduces a program's data size. Statically allocated scalars, pointers, structures, and arrays are encoded and packed based on the results of a whole-program analysis in the value set and pointer set domains. We tar...2007-01-01
13 Wunderlich, Adam JamesOn efficient assessment of image-quality metrics based on linear model observersThis paper is motivated by the problem of image-quality assessment using model observers for the purpose of development and optimization of medical imaging systems. Specifically, we present a study regarding the estimation of the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve for the observer and ass...2012-01-01
14 Shetty, Dinesh K.On the effect of birefringence on light transmission in Polycrystalline Magnesium FluorideLight transmission in polycrystalline magnesium fluoride was studied as a function of the mean grain size at different wavelengths. The mean grain size was varied by annealing hot-pressed billets in argon atmosphere at temperatures ranging from 600 to 800°C for 1 hour. The grain-size and grain-orie...2014-01-01
15 Hawkes, KristenOn Human fertility: Individual or group benefit?Caldwell et al. (CA 28:25-43) have pointed to the pervasive influence of Carr-Saunders's (1922) concept of population regulation throughout two-thirds of a century of anthropology and demography.1988-01-01
16 Khan, Faisal HabibOn the design of efficient magnetic coils for the stimulation of peripheral nervesNeural stimulators are the key building blocks of current neuroprosthetic systems, such as cochlear and retinal implants. Due to direct current injections and foreign body reactions, conventional current passing electrodes suffer from reduced performance and reduced lifetimes. However, magnetic fiel...2013-01-01
17 Hawkes, KristenOn life history evolution (a comment on Chisholm)Chisholm (CA 34:I-24) is right that the theory, models, and data of evolutionary biology apply to questions asked by social scientists. Work in life-history theory (Stearns 1992, Roff 1992, Charnov 1993) has especially provocative implications for the understanding of human development (see review i...1994-01-01
18 Hawkes, KristenOn optimal foraging models and subsistence transitionsLayton, Foley, and Williams are right: "progress" doesn't explain transitions from hunting and gathering to agriculture, by theory and models from behavioral ecology might.1992-01-01
19 Hawkes, KristenOn sharing and work (a comment on Bird-David)Bird-David (CA 33:25-47) discusses reasons for the persistent vitality and wide appeal of Sahlins's influential characterization of hunter-gatherers as representatives of 'original affluence."1992-01-01
