Saccadic latency and choice in a concurrent random interval reinforcement schedule

Cécile Vullings & Laurent Madelain
Conventional decision models view reaction time as a consequence of the duration of decision-making process. However, some studies have shown that reaction time distributions may be strongly affected by reinforcement contingencies (Madelain et al., 2007). Here, we probe the possibility to control saccadic latencies in a choice paradigm.

Our subjects made saccades toward a target stepping horizontally by 10 deg between two fixed locations. Trials with saccadic latencies greater than 300 ms or shorter than 80...

Mathematical modeling of HIV viral dynamics and immune response during treatment interruptions

, Stanca Ciupe, Stephen Eubank, Josep Bassaganya-Riera, , Margaret O'Dell & Kaja Abbas
The objective of this study is to understand HIV viral dynamics and immune response at the individual level, and analyze the impact of antiretroviral treatment interruptions on HIV prognosis to improve HIV treatment regimens.

ContrastRank: a new tool for ranking gene candidates in complex diseases

Jaume Sastre Tomas, Damia Heine Suñer, Emidio Capriotti & Jairo Rocha Cárdenas
Recent advances in next generation sequencing (NGS) have provided such a huge amount of data that is even beyond the analysis capacity of the scientific community. Therefore, it has become a necessity, the development of new bioinformatic tools for the detection of genetic variants associated with many genetic disorders. An important factor in this analysis is the distinction between mutations that affect functionality and promote the onset of the disease (drivers) and mutations that do...

Epidemiological modeling and economic evaluation for prioritization of limited public health resources

Kaja Abbas, , Jennifer Samuels, Karina Platt, Paige Bordwine, , Thomas Kerkering & Kerry Redican

Economic evaluation of public health interventions: outbreak responses of pertussis, tuberculosis and fungal meningitis in New River Valley, Virginia

Kaja Abbas, , Jennifer Samuels, Karina Platt, Paige Bordwine, , Thomas Kerkering & Kerry Redican
To conduct cost-effectiveness analysis of infectious disease interventions and assist in prioritization of limited public health resources, with a focus on pertussis, tuberculosis and fungal meningitis in New River Valley, Virginia.

Computational epidemiology: Bayesian disease surveillance

Kaja Abbas, Armin Mikler, Amir Ramezani & Sheena Menezes
Disease monitoring plays a crucial role in the implementation of public health measures. The demographic profiles of the people and the disease prevalence in a geographic region are analyzed for inter-causal relationships. Bayesian analysis of the data identifies the pertinent characteristics of the disease under study. The vital components of control and prevention of the disease spread are identified by bayesian learning for the efficient utilization of the limited public health resources. Bayesian computing, layered...

Glomus tympanicum: A case report

Syed Shahmeer Raza, Muhammad Daniyal Nadeem, Amer Kamal Hussain & Halla Saboor
Glomus tympanicum is a benign, most common tumour of the middle ear with relatively good prognosis if detected early. They arise from paraganglionic tissue and are innervated by PANS. They are more common in females. The spread of these tumours is multidirectional and simultaneous. They may be asymptomatic or present with pulsatile tinnitus. On examination, The eardrum shows a rising sun or setting sun appearance. On CT scan, we can see a soft tissue mass...

Physiological noise regression for multiband fMRI residual correlations emphasize the importance

Norman Scheel, & Amir Madany Mamlouk
Recently a new technique called multiband imaging was introduced, it allows extremely low repetition times for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). As these ultra fast imaging scans can increase the Nyquist rate by an order of magnitude, there are many new e ects, that have to be accounted for. As more frequencies can now be sampled directly, we want to analyze especially those that are due to physiological noise, such as cardiac and respiratory signals....

Outreach activities at FlyBase

Alix J. Rey, Laura Ponting, Gary Grumbling, Jim Thurmond, , Gillian Millburn & Nicholas H. Brown
FlyBase has an active and diverse outreach program to engage with our user community. For example, the FlyBase Community Advisory Group (FCAG) comprises over 530 FlyBase users from around the world and provides essential feedback on new features and changes to FlyBase through regular surveys. We have also implemented the online “Fast-Track Your Paper” tool to facilitate community curation, with over 50% of authors routinely associating genes with their publications in FlyBase and highlighting data...
