Spontaneous eyeblink rate as a predictor of dopamine: Individual differences across previous collision sport history

Audrey Hooks, Shannon Collins & Jake Kurczek
Humans and animals identify, pursue and achieve rewards and learn from rewarded experiences through a reward system The mesolimbic reward system is responsible for a number of psychological mechanisms including hedonic response to reward and incentive salience or colloquially liking and wanting Eye-blink rate is a reliable proxy for dopaminergic functioning (Taylor et al., 1999) Altered dysfunction has been detected in a number of clinical populations, including schizophrenia (Chen, Lam, Chen, & Nguyen, 1996), and...

Assessing and validating a 3D motion tracking balance assessment.

Angela Richardson, Thomas Johnson & Jake Kurczek
Previous research has investigated the BESS and found that scores were highly varied across experimenters.
This research reveals a number of potential flaws within the BESS. Beyond the problems of subjective scoring, the BESS only detects dysfunction so that most healthy people and even people affected by mild concussions score perfectly well on the test.
In the present experiment, we look to assess the BESS test and compare subjective assessment of balance ability.
By identifying...

International infectious diseases teaching to undergraduate medical students: A successful European collaborative experience*

Caroline Charlier, Ingólfur Johannessen, Claire L Mackintosh, David Wilks, Roberto Cauda, Federica I Wolf & Claire Le Jeunne
Context: The emerging global-health paradigm requires medical teaching to be continuously redefined and updated; to this end, transnational approaches should be encouraged and medical training harmonized. Infectious diseases (ID) teaching in the current context of emerging infections, fast-increasing bacterial resistance and large-scale human migration, was chosen to develop a common international course. Objective: We report the successful implementation of a joint European undergraduate course aiming to (i) develop a common ID core curriculum among European...

Central immunological position of the human histo (blood) group O(H).

Peter Arend
Prokaryotic "blood group A/B-like" antigenic structures apparently induce basically cross-reactive anti-A/B immunoglobulins, which due to clonal selection neither arise in blood group A nor in B individuals but occur exclusively in blood group O. While bacterial endotoxins non-specifically stimulate the formation of all immunoglobulins, most likely involving the anti-A/B isoagglutinins, a definite, adaptive immunological induction of these agglutinins appears to be restricted to blood group O(H) individuals. In the non-O blood groups, anti-A/B reactivity is...

Degradation of alkali lignin by two ascomycetes and free radical scavenging activity of the products

Anand Barapatre & Harit Jha
Biodegradation and bioconversion of extracted alkali lignin was performed under varying concentrations of carbon and nitrogen sources, by two potential Ascomycetes ligninolytic fungus isolated from soil. Fungus, F10 was identified as Aspergillus flavus, while APF4 as Emericella nidulans based upon closed similarity with their morphology and high homology in 18S rRNA gene sequences. The alkali lignin degradation was checked in term of disappearance of lignin content and colority. Selected fungus, degraded 19–41.6% of alkali lignin...

The graph-tool python library

Tiago P. Peixoto
Graph-tool is an efficient Python module for manipulation and statistical analysis of graphs (a.k.a. networks). Contrary to most other python modules with similar functionality, the core data structures and algorithms are implemented in C++, making extensive use of template metaprogramming, based heavily on the Boost Graph Library. This confers it a level of performance that is comparable (both in memory usage and computation time) to that of a pure C/C++ library.

Why IVC Filters Are Necessary to Prevent Blood Clots

Drug Watcher
Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters are placed in a large vein located in the abdomen. This large vein is responsible for making sure that blood returns from the lower part of the body back to the heart. This is a common procedure for anyone suffering from blood clots, for one reason or another, and who cannot receive (or does not respond) to conventional medicine as part of their treatment plan. However, there are some additional...

Evolutionary spectrum inversion and analysis (Especia)

Ralf Quast
The Evolutionary spectrum inversion and analysis (Especia) file set provides ISO C++ code for the inverse modelling and analysis of intergalactic and interstellar absorption line regions seen in QSO spectra.Due to the use of evolution strategies with covariance matrix adaption, the inverse modelling procedure is highly competitive and capable of calculating the optimal spectral decomposition without requiring any particular initialisation.Additional highlights are the joint modelling and optimisation of the background continuum, and an accurate semi-analytic...
