Four experiments are reported which attempt to externalize subjects' mental representation of conditional sentences, using novel research methods. In Experiment 1, subjects were shown arrays of coloured shapes and asked to rate the degree to which they appeared to be true of conditional statements such as "If the figure is green then it is a triangle".

1. The functional profile of the long form of the human cloned 5-HT7 receptor (designated h5-HT7(a)) was investigated using a number of 5-HT receptor agonists and antagonists and compared with its binding profile. Receptor function was measured using adenylyl cyclase activity in washed membranes from HEK293 cells stably expressing the recombinant h5-HT7(a)(More)
Since the development of the Edmonton protocol, islet transplantation is increasingly encouraging as a treatment for type 1 diabetes. Strategies to ameliorate problems with the intraportal site include macroencapsulating the islets in diverse biomaterials. Characterization of these biomaterials is important to optimally tune the properties to support islets(More)
