The IPSE 2.5 project is concerned with the problem of how computer systems can be used in the development of information systems. The project is being carried out under the UK Alvey Programme Software Engineering Strategy by a consortium comprising STC Technology Limited, International Computers Limited, University of Manchester, Dowty Defense and Air(More)
Hagfishes (Myxinidae), a family of jawless marine pre-vertebrates, hold a unique evolutionary position, sharing a joint ancestor with the entire vertebrate lineage. They are thought to fulfil primarily the ecological niche of scavengers in the deep ocean. However, we present new footage from baited video cameras that captured images of hagfishes actively(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effects of non-nutritional factors alone on the growth of children with cerebral palsy (CP). 20 children with hemiplegic CP, normal stature and normal triceps skinfold measurements had 16 different anthropometric measures performed on each side of the body (affected vs unaffected). All measures of breadth,(More)
—Improved fuel consumption and lower emissions are two of the key objectives for future transportation. Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), in which two or more power systems are combined, are able to meet these objectives through the capture and reuse of regenerated braking energy, and through optimised use of the prime mover. However, more complicated power(More)
Gustation is a multisensory process allowing for the selection of nutrients and the rejection of irritating and/or toxic compounds. Since obesity is a highly prevalent condition that is critically dependent on food intake and energy expenditure, a deeper understanding of gustatory processing is an important objective in biomedical research. Recent findings(More)
BACKGROUND Continental slopes are among the steepest environmental gradients on earth. However, they still lack finer quantification and characterisation of their faunal diversity patterns for many parts of the world. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Changes in fish community structure and diversity along a depth gradient from 50 to 1200 m were studied from(More)
