The National Database for Autism Research (NDAR) is a secure research data repository designed to promote scientific data sharing and collaboration among autism spectrum disorder investigators. The goal of the project is to accelerate scientific discovery through data sharing, data harmonization, and the reporting of research results. Data from over 25,000(More)
The detection of microorganisms in root canals is generally limited to qualitative or semiquantitative methods. We describe a new and nondestructive in vitro method to quantify root-canal bacteria over sequential treatment procedures using real-time imaging in conjunction with the bioluminescent reporter strain Pseudomonas fluorescens 5RL. Induced bacterial(More)
A December 2010 meeting, "Down Syndrome: National Conference on Patient Registries, Research Databases, and Biobanks," was jointly sponsored by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD, and the Global Down Syndrome Foundation (GDSF)/Linda Crnic(More)
We model human learning in a repeated and sequential game context that provides delayed reinforcements. Our context is significantly more complex than previous work in behavioral game theory, which has predominantly focused on repeated single-shot games where the actions of other agent are perfectly observable and provides for an immediate reinforcement. In(More)
In today's busy dental offices, removable partial denture design is often abdicated by dentists, both as a result of a lack of experience and consensus of design and because of educational failure on the part of dental schools. The result is delegation of the clinical design process to the lab technician. The lack of clinical data provided to the dental(More)
Modeling human decision making in strategic problem domains is challenging with normative game theoretic approaches. Behavioral aspects of this type of decision making, such as forgetfulness or misattribution of reward, require additional parameters to capture their effect on decisions. We propose a descriptive model utilizing aspects of behavioral game(More)
