The ITS Research Center is supported by fees from industrial members and contracts from government agencies. Toyota was the primary sponsor for this project. 16. Abstract This report concerns the second of four experiments examining the time to read electronic maps while driving. Twenty subjects (ages 18-30 and 65+, equal numbers of men and women) drove the(More)
Age-specific mortality rates in isogenic populations of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans increase exponentially throughout life. In genetically heterogeneous populations, age-specific mortality increases exponentially until about 17 days and then remains constant until the last death occurs at about 60 days. This period of constant age-specific mortality(More)
with less significance, suggesting that the association is frontally focused. One imputed synonymous SNP in exon four, highly correlated with our top three SNPs, was significantly associated with the frontal theta ERO phenotype. These results suggest KCNJ6 or its product GIRK2 account for some of the variations in frontal theta band oscillations. GIRK2(More)
We have identified chromosomal regions containing quantitative trait loci (QTLs) specifying life history traits in recombinant-inbred strains of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. This approach also allows us to examine epistatic interactions between loci and pleiotropic effects on different traits at specific loci. QTLs for mean life span were identified(More)
A methodology was developed for evaluating enhanced powered two wheeler (PTW) conspicuity in a driving simulator environment. In order to evaluate the methodology, a driving simulator experiment was conducted involving n = 10 European car drivers. Testing involved full-task, "blind" experiments in which the driver subjects did not know the true purpose of(More)
The NERC Earth Observation Data Acquisition and Analysis Service (NEODAAS a partnership between the Dundee Satellite Receiving Station and Plymouth Marine Laboratory) is funded by NERC to provide satellite data and products for the UK research community. Capabilities include the reception, archiving, processing and analysis of satellite data, along with(More)
We present a procedure whereby the confocal laser scanning ophthalmoscope can be used to extract information about the three-dimensional structure of the central excavated area or the cup of the optic nerve head of the eye. The data are analyzed in terms of spherical harmonics. It is hypothesized that the shape of the cup of the optic nerve head for a(More)
Limitation of the action of the medial rectus muscle will cause limitation of adduction of the eye just as limitation of the lateral rectus will cause limitation of abduction. Factors limiting the action of the medial rectus are: (i) loss of ability of the muscle to contract beyond a certain proportion of its length; (ii) limitation of relaxation of the(More)
