Spread over an area in Western Australia, this telescope is being designed to study the sun and its inner heliosphere, and time-varying astronomical phenomena. ABSTRACT | The Murchison Widefield Array is a dipole-based aperture array synthesis telescope designed to operate in the 80–300 MHz frequency range. It is capable of a wide range of science(More)
PC12 cells are an established model for studying the role of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in excitotoxicity and function as multimeric assemblies of NR1 with at least one NR2(A-D) subunit. We examined NR1 splice variant and NR2 subunit expression in four PC12 cell-lines (ATCC, WEHI, Ordway and Flinders), correlated mRNA expression with protein(More)

Abstract: The Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) is one of three Square Kilometre Array Precursor telescopes and is located at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory in the Murchison Shire of the mid-west of Western Australia, a location(More)
Obesity is a major public health concern and there are increasing calls for policy intervention. As obesity and the related health conditions develop during childhood, schools are being seen as important locations for obesity prevention, including multifaceted interventions incorporating policy elements. The objective of this systematic review was to(More)

We present the first spectroscopic images of solar radio transients from the prototype for the Murchison Widefield Array, observed on 2010 March 27. Our observations span the instantaneous frequency band 170.9– 201.6 MHz. Though our observing period is characterized as a period of " low " to " medium " activity, one broadband emission feature and numerous(More)
Schools are common sites for obesity prevention interventions. Although many theories suggest that the school context influences weight status, there has been little empirical research. The objective of this study was to explore whether features of the school context were consistently and meaningfully associated with pupil weight status (overweight or(More)
Ionization of the Earth's atmosphere by sunlight forms a complex, multi-layered plasma environment within the Earth's magnetosphere, the innermost layers being the ionosphere and plasmasphere. The plasmasphere is believed to be embedded with cylindrical density structures (ducts) aligned along the Earth's magnetic field, but direct evidence for these(More)
