Here we present auditory stimuli for the Multi-Dimensional Battery of Prosody Perception (MBOPP), a novel tool for the assessment of prosody perception. It consists of two subtests-- Linguistic Focus, which measures the ability to hear emphasis or sentential stress, and Phrase Boundaries, which measures the ability to hear where in a compound sentence one phrase ends, and another begins. Perception of individual acoustic dimensions (Pitch and Time) can be examined separately, and test difficulty can...

We present data from three experiments using a sequential binary choice task that explore the relationship between two proposed cognitive control functions: set-shifting and place-keeping (i.e., keeping track of one’s place within a sequential task). The task involves switching from one stimulus-response mapping to another across trials, according to a predefined sequence and in the face of occasional brief interruptions. Response-stimulus interval, interruption length and interrupting task were varied. In each study, response time, sequential...

Recognising how difficult it is to find cheap and suitable rehearsal spaces in London, and the effect that may have on the viability and finances of many unfunded fringe productions, on behalf of the Centre for Contemporary Theatre I successfully applied to the Higher Education Investment Fund (HEIF) to fund the theatre director Tom Mansfield to undertake the research and to compile the first survey of rehearsal and audition rooms in London in May 2013....
Data for a cross-modal task-switching experiment published with the title: 'Information processes of task-switching and modality-shifting across development'. Mean reaction time and accuracy scores were recorded while participants took part in a novel computerised audio-visual task-switching and modality-switching task. Participants were 4-year-old, 6-year-olds and adults.
This dataset was collected for the Open Research Survey of 2017. The data supports the linked report in BIROn.
flexiMAP: A regression-based method for discovering differential alternative polyadenylation events in standard RNA-seq dataKrzysztof J. Szkop, David S. Moss & Irene Nobeli
An “idealized” dataset of RNA-seq reads was created using the polyester R package (Frazee et al., 2015). This simulated dataset is clean of technical biases and fold changes between isoforms are known, allowing testing of the sensitivity limits of the method in the absence of external factors. The simulation experiment comprises 20 samples, 10 in each of two conditions. For the "main" dataset, polyadenylation sites splitting each transcript into two isoforms (short and long) were...
