How do independent and interdependent self-construals affect cognition? The authors proposed the semantic-procedural interface model, which distinguishes 2 such mechanisms. In addition to semantic differences, different procedural modes of thinking are associated with independent and interdependent self-construals. Independent self-definitions coincide with(More)
The signaling pathways by which beta-adrenergic agonists modulate voltage-dependent cardiac sodium currents are unknown, although it is likely that adenosine 3'5'-monophosphate (cAMP) is involved. Single-channel and whole-cell sodium currents were measured in cardiac myocytes and the signal transducing G protein Gs was found to couple beta-adrenergic(More)
The mechanism by which the beta-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol (ISO) modulates voltage-dependent cardiac Na+ currents (INa) was studied in single ventricular myocytes of neonatal rat using the gigaseal patch-clamp technique. ISO inhibited INa reversibly, making the effect readily distinguishable from the monotonic decrease of INa caused by the shift in(More)
We present a new algorithm for best-effort simplification of polygonal meshes based on principles of visual perception. Building on previous work, we use a simple model of low-level human vision to estimate the perceptibility of local simplification operations in a view-dependent Multi-Triangulation structure. Our algorithm improves on prior perceptual(More)
Figure 1: Two scenes from the CG movie 'Monsters University'. Top row: direct illumination. Bottom row: global illumination — images such as these render more than 30 times faster with radiosity caching. c Disney/Pixar. Abstract We present a multiresolution radiosity caching method that allows global illumination to be computed efficiently in a single pass(More)
