Three-dimensional modelling of auxetic sandwich panels for localised impact resistance
(SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 2017-05-01)
Sandwich panels with auxetic lattice cores confined between metallic facets are proposed for localised impact resistance applications. Their performance under localised impact is numerically studied, considering the ...
IDH1 mutation is associated with seizures and protoplasmic subtype in patients with low-grade gliomas
OBJECTIVE: The isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) R132H mutation is the most common mutation in World Health Organization (WHO) grade II gliomas, reported to be expressed in 70-80%, but only 5-10% of high grade gliomas. Low ...
Neurons derived from human embryonic stem cells extend long-distance axonal projections through growth along host white matter tracts after intra-cerebral transplantation
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2012-03-22)
Human pluripotent stem cells have the capacity for directed differentiation into a wide variety of neuronal subtypes that may be useful for brain repair. While a substantial body of research has lead to a detailed understanding ...
7T-fMRI: Faster temporal resolution yields optimal BOLD sensitivity for functional network imaging specifically at high spatial resolution.
Recent developments in accelerated imaging methods allow faster acquisition of high spatial resolution images. This could improve the applications of functional magnetic resonance imaging at 7 Tesla (7T-fMRI), such as ...
A detailed, conductance-based computer model of intrinsic sensory neurons of the gastrointestinal tract
(AMER PHYSIOLOGICAL SOC, 2014-09-01)
Intrinsic sensory neurons (ISNs) of the enteric nervous system respond to stimuli such as muscle tension, muscle length, distortion of the mucosa, and the chemical content in the lumen. ISNs form recurrent networks that ...
Two-dimensional diffusion of amphiphiles in phospholipid monolayers at the air-water interface.
Steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy has been used to examine lateral diffusion in dipalmitoyl-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and dimyristoyl-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine (DMPC) monolayers at the ...
