139 Judd, David PaulTelomere proteins of Drosophila melanogaster: HipHop and MSK81DNA molecules encoding two proteins, HipHop and MSK81, were cloned into bacteria so as to make large amounts of these proteins that bind to telomeres of Drosophila (fruit fly) chromosomes. The goal was to determine whether known DNA binding motifs are present in HipHop and MSK81. Understanding how t...Biology2012-05

146 Matyi, Joshua MatthewIntelligence and neural activation : a test of the relationship between the neural efficiency hypothesis and repetition suppressionThe Neural Efficiency Hypothesis (NEH) states that individuals with higher measured intelligence exhibit less neural activation on relatively simple tasks compared to those with lower intelligence (Haier et al., 1988). Furthermore, this phenomenon may interact with repetition suppression, or the red...Intelligence levels - Physiological aspects; Neural networks (Neurobiology)2014-05
