The human serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) transporter (hSERT, SLC6A4) figures prominently in the etiology and treatment of many prevalent neurobehavioral disorders including anxiety, alcoholism, depression, autism, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Here, we use naturally occurring polymorphisms in recombinant inbred (RI) lines to identify(More)
The glycosaminoglycan of decorin, dermatan sulfate (DS), has been suggested to contribute to the mechanical properties of soft connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons. This study investigated the mechanical function of DS in human medial collateral ligaments (MCL) using nondestructive shear and tensile material tests performed before and after(More)
We propose that a model for early screening of children aged 3-5 years for vulnerability for learning disabilities risk can result in preventive interventions, including collaborative interventions planned through parent-professional partnership. The goals of screening and preventive services would be to mitigate increased risk of learning disabilities in(More)
The knee joint is partially stabilized by the interaction of multiple ligament structures. This study tested the interdependent functions of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the medial collateral ligament (MCL) by evaluating the effects of ACL deficiency on local MCL strain while simultaneously measuring joint kinematics under specific loading(More)
