Antimalarial antibodies defined by agglutination, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (data not shown) or surface immunofluorescence (data not shown) were not associated with the presence or absence of infection. Anti-adhesion antibodies against CSAbinding parasites differ from antibodies against parasites with other binding phenotypes.(More)
Brain plasticity is the basis for systems-level functional reorganization that promotes recovery in multiple sclerosis (MS). As inflammation interferes with plasticity, its pharmacological modulation may restore plasticity by promoting desired patterns of functional reorganization. Here, we tested the hypothesis that brain plasticity probed by a visuomotor(More)

We find there are wide individual differences in the ability to detect that a face has been doubled when presented briefly and masked. These differences appear(More)
