A "same-different" letter pair choice reaction time task was used to compare reaction time, performance accuracy, and P3 amplitude and latency at three levels of task difficulty. Stimulus set was held constant across tasks, and task difficulty was manipulated by instructions to the subject. Subjects delivered a button-press response to designate whether(More)
BACKGROUND Air pollution has been associated with adverse neurological and behavioral health effects in children and adults. Recent studies link air pollutant exposure to adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes, including increased risk for autism, cognitive decline, ischemic stroke, schizophrenia, and depression. OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate the(More)
Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) degradation has been noted in the stunned myocardium of rodents after ischemia and reperfusion and is one proposed mechanism for the decreased left ventricular (LV) contractility in postischemic hearts. cTnI degradation has been best described after reperfusion of the ischemic myocardium. The effect of ischemia, independent of(More)
Advances in protein crystallography and homology modeling techniques are producing vast amounts of high resolution protein structure data at ever increasing rates. As such, the ability to quickly and easily extract structural similarities is a key tool in discovering important functional relationships. We report on an approach for creating and maintaining a(More)
Abuse on a large-scale website such as YouTube comes in various forms — scraping, email spam, hate speech, or " black-hat " search engine optimization to name a few — and must be fought accordingly. The detection of abusive behaviors uses supervised (machine learning) as well as unsupervised algorithms to mine billions of requests and predict the likelihood(More)
