Current theories assume that rats use the directional information reflected by head direction (HD) cells when performing spatial tasks. This assumption was assessed by monitoring anterior thalamic HD cell activity and relating it to the subject's behavioral response on 2 spatial memory tasks that tested either reference memory or working memory. In both(More)
The serotonin transporter (SERT) is responsible for reuptake of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) after its exocytotic release from neurons. It is the primary target for antidepressants and stimulants, including "ecstasy" (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine). SERT is regulated by several processes, including a cyclic GMP signaling pathway involving nitric(More)
The zinc finger transcription factor CONSTANS has a well-established central role in the mechanism for photoperiod sensing in Arabidopsis, integrating light and circadian clock signals to upregulate the florigen gene FT under long-day but not short-day conditions. Although CONSTANS-LIKE (COL) genes in other species have also been shown to regulate flowering(More)
Web-based multimedia tutorials are being developed for use in several undergraduate courses in Electrical Engineering and Computer and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer. These interactive learning modules (ILMs) are created with the Director authoring environment and can be deployed using a standard Web browser with Macromedia's Shockwave plug-in as the(More)
This paper introduces nonlinear threshold time series modeling techniques that actuaries can use in pricing insurance products, analyzing the results of experience studies, and forecasting actuarial assumptions. Basic " self-exciting " threshold autoregressive (SETAR) models, as well as heterosce-dastic and multivariate SETAR processes, are discussed.(More)
The board has delegated to the Communication and Public Education Committee the authority to approve all requests for alternate formats or display methodologies of the Notice to Consumers Poster and/or the Notice of Interpreter Availability Poster. Staff has developed a request form that may be used by pharmacies requesting approval of an alternate format(More)
Mpack Systems will present information on its new design for pharmacy prescription packaging. Background: Title 16 California Code of Regulations section 1707.5 specifies requirements for patient-centered labels for prescription drug containers. When the board promulgated these requirements, there was much public comment from numerous stakeholders. As such,(More)
Earlier this year, 200 researchers from across the globe gathered at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, for 3 days of talks from 30 of the leading pioneers in modern cardiovascular medicine. From May 8 to 10, 2014, scientists discussed and dissected topics ranging from the clinical treatment of atherosclerosis to the(More)
This essay presents a method for coupling a level set method with a shallow water model allowing us to track the contact line of the fluid in the shallow water model. A finite volume method is used to conserve the volume of the fluid while semi-Lagrangian advection is used to improve the stability of our model. Additionally, a fast sweeping method is used(More)
