Variations in seed characteristics observed in heteromorphic species may affect various stages of their life cycles, e.g. seed dormancy, germination characteristics or even adult plant performance. Highly specialised seed morphs - described as colonisers and maintainers - exhibit a trade-off between colonisation capacity and competitive traits. The(More)
We present a coarse-grained two dimensional mechanical model for the microtubule-tau bundles in neuronal axons in which we remove taus, as can happen in various neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimers disease, tauopathies, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Our simplified model includes (i) taus modeled as entropic springs between microtubules,(More)
We also implement locally weighted least squares linear regression with the following cost function: We search for the optimal model by performing leaveone-out cross validation over all models • Solid state lithium ion batteries show great promise as high performance energy storage devices; however, designing high ionic conductivity solid electrolytes(More)
​Hardy and Higgins first proposed the amyloid cascade hypothesis in 1992, stating that the decrease in neuronal function observed in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is due to a process initiated by the oligomerization of amyloid beta peptide. One hypothesis states that toxicity arises from the aggregation of amyloid beta into a pore structure, which can then(More)
