Axonal projections from the retina to the brain are regulated by molecules including the Slit family of ligands [Thompson, H., Barker, D., Camand, O., Erskine, L., 2006a. Slits contribute to the guidance of retinal ganglion cell axons in the mammalian optic tract. Dev. Biol. 296, 476-484, Thompson, H., Camand, O., Barker, D., Erskine, L., 2006b. Slit(More)
The Robo family of molecules is important for axon guidance across the midline during central nervous system (CNS) development in invertebrates and vertebrates. Here we describe the patterns of Robo protein expression in the developing mouse CNS from embryonic day (E) 9.5 to postnatal day (P) 4, as determined by immunohistochemical labeling with an antibody(More)
The ventral midline of the central nervous system is an important intermediate target where growing commissural axons either cross and project contralaterally or remain on the same side of the body. New studies on mice and humans show that this decision by commissural axons is largely dependent on Slits, extracellular matrix proteins that are widely(More)
We discuss our experiences in integrating a commercial off-the-shelf ground-penetrating radar unit with an all-terrain rover. Straight-line subsurface surveys were generated in a fully autonomous manner using odometry and a simple visual servoing technique. Survey results for various terrains are presented. We discuss the configuration of the integrated(More)
The "Spanish Flu" killed over 40 million people worldwide in 1918. Archival records helped us identify seven men who died of influenza in 1918 and were interred in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway, 1,300 km from the North Pole. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) was used successfully, in a high-resolution field survey mode, to locate a large excavation with seven(More)
Evidence for the presence of 11 intestinal parasites in pre-school children from 4 rural villages in Ghana was obtained from an examination of stool samples. Striking differences were detected between the prevalence of some of the 6 common infections in the 4 villages. The prevalence of Ascaris lumbricoides varied from about 76% in one village (Oshiyie,(More)
A screen of cell surface markers differentially expressed during peripheral B cell differentiation identified that the CD45RB epitope detected by the mAb MEM-55 was highly expressed on CD27(+) memory B cells and absent on CD27(-) naïve B cells. IgG(+)CD27(-) memory and a previously unacknowledged CD27(-) population in blood also expressed high levels of(More)
Epidemiological differences between tropical and temperate regions regarding viruses causing acute respiratory infection are poorly understood. This is in part because methodological differences limit the comparability of data from these two regions. Using identical molecular detection methods, we tested 1174 Ghanaian and 539 German children with acute(More)
Continuous profiles of the frost table for a series of traverses in unconsolidated sediments in the Leaf Bay area, Ungava, were obtained using an all terrain vehicle borne impulse radar system. The results correlate extremely well with data obtained by the insertion of rigid temperature probes at frequent intervals along the traverses. Each of the two(More)
