In a group of 831 participants from the general population in the Human Connectome Project, smokers exhibited low overall functional connectivity, and more specifically of the lateral orbitofrontal cortex which is associated with non-reward mechanisms, the adjacent inferior frontal gyrus, and the precuneus. Participants who drank a high amount had overall increases in resting state functional connectivity, and specific increases in reward-related systems including the medial orbitofrontal cortex and the cingulate cortex. Increased impulsivity was...

Data from: In vivo dynamics of skeletal muscle Dystrophin in zebrafish embryos revealed by improved FRAP analysis

Fernanda Bajanca, Vinicio Gonzalez-Perez, Sean J. Gillespie, Cyriaque Beley, Luis Garcia, Eric Theveneau, Richard P. Sear & Simon M. Hughes
Dystrophin forms an essential link between sarcolemma and cytoskeleton, perturbation of which causes muscular dystrophy. We analysed Dystrophin binding dynamics in vivo for the first time. Within maturing fibres of host zebrafish embryos, our analysis reveals a pool of diffusible Dystrophin and complexes bound at the fibre membrane. Combining modelling, an improved FRAP methodology and direct semi-quantitative analysis of bleaching suggests the existence of two membrane-bound Dystrophin populations with widely differing bound lifetimes: a stable,...

Data from: A case-by-case analysis of four imprinted retrogenes

Ruth B McCole, Noeleen B Loughran, Mandeep Chahal, Luis P Fernandes, Roland G Roberts, Franca Fraternali, Mary J O'Connell & Rebecca J Oakey
Retroposition is a widespread phenomenon resulting in the generation of new genes that are initially related to a parent gene via very high coding sequence similarity. We examine the evolutionary fate of four retrogenes generated by such an event; mouse Inpp5f_v2, Mcts2, Nap1l5, and U2af1-rs1. These genes are all subject to the epigenetic phenomenon of parental imprinting. We first provide new data on the age of these retrogene insertions. Using codon-based models of sequence evolution,...

Data from: Ecosystem services provided by bromeliad plants: a systematic review

Geraldine Ladino, Fabiola Ospina-Bautista, Jaime Estévez Varón, Lucie Jerabkova & Pavel Kratina
The unprecedented loss of biological diversity has negative impacts on ecosystems and the associated benefits which they provide to humans. Bromeliads have high diversity throughout the Neotropics, but they have been negatively affected by habitat loss and fragmentation, climate change, herbivorous species invasions, and they are also being commercialized for ornamental use. These plants provide direct benefits to the human society and they also form micro ecosystems in which accumulated water and nutrients support the...

Data from: Magnetic resonance imaging and tensor-based morphometry in the MPTP non-human primate model of Parkinson’s disease

Michel Modo, William R. Crum, Madeline Gerwig, Anthony C. Vernon, Priya Patel, Michael J. Jackson, Sarah Rose, Peter Jenner & Mahmoud M. Iravani
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder producing a variety of motor and cognitive deficits with the causes remaining largely unknown. The gradual loss of the nigrostriatal pathway is currently considered the pivotal pathological event. To better understand the progression of PD and improve treatment management, defining the disease on a structural basis and expanding brain analysis to extra-nigral structures is indispensable. The anatomical complexity and the presence of neuromelanin, make the...

Data from: Correlations of behavioral deficits with brain pathology assessed through longitudinal MRI and histopathology in the HDHQ150/Q150 mouse model of Huntington's disease

Ivan Rattray, Edward J. Smith, William R. Crum, Thomas J. Walker, Richard Gale, Gillian P. Bates, Mike Modo & Michel Modo
A variety of mouse models have been developed that express mutant huntingtin (mHTT) leading to aggregates and inclusions that model the molecular pathology observed in Huntington’s disease. Here we show that although homozygous HdhQ150 knock-in mice developed motor impairments (rotarod, locomotor activity, grip strength) by 36 weeks of age, cognitive dysfunction (swimming T maze, fear conditioning, odor discrimination, social interaction) was not evident by 94 weeks. Concomitant to behavioral assessments, T2-weighted MRI volume measurements indicated...

Neil J. Ingham, Selina A. Pearson, Valerie E. Vancollie, Victoria Rook, Morag A. Lewis, Jing Chen, Annalisa Buniello, Elisa Martelletti, Lorenzo Preite, Chi C. Lam, Felix D. Weiss, Zoe Powis, Pim Suwannarat, Christopher J. Lelliot, Sally J. Dawson, Jacqueline K. White & Karen P. Steel
Adult-onset hearing loss is very common but we know little about the underlying molecular pathogenesis, impeding development of therapies. We took a genetic approach to identify new molecules involved in hearing loss by screening a large cohort of newly-generated mouse mutants using a sensitive electrophysiological test, the auditory brainstem response. We review here the findings from this screen. Thirty-eight unexpected genes associated with raised thresholds were detected from our unbiased sample of 1,211 genes tested,...

Fragmentation in trader preferences among multiple markets: Market coexistence versus single market dominance

Aleksandra Alorić, Robin Nicole & Peter Sollich
Technological advancement has lead to an increase in number and type of trading venues and diversification of goods traded. These changes have re-emphasized the importance of understanding the effects of market competition: does proliferation of trading venues and increased competition lead to dominance of a single market or coexistence of multiple markets? In this paper, we address these questions in a stylized model of Zero Intelligence traders who make repeated decisions at which of three...
