Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder, starting in early childhood and persisting into adulthood in the majority of cases. Family and twin studies have demonstrated the importance of genetic factors and candidate gene association studies have identified several loci that exert small but significant effects(More)
genetic factors underlying common disease are largely unknown. Discovery of disease-causing genes will transform our knowledge of the genetic contribution to human disease, lead to new genetic screens, and underpin research into new cures and improved lifestyles. The se-quencing of the human genome has catalyzed efforts to search for disease genes by the(More)
This paper discusses the need for informed decision making with respect to the management of the risks Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) operations present to people and property on the ground. In the absence of a wealth of experience in the hazards of UAS operations, an understanding of the risks can be gained through a formal risk analysis. This paper proposes(More)
A computationally intelligent framework has been developed for the forced landing problem for uninhabited airborne vehicles (UAVs). This framework locates landing areas within an image that are of the appropriate geometrical size and free of obstacles. The surface-type of the candidate landing areas are classified into categories such as grass, trees and(More)
Anorexia nervosa (AN) is an enigmatic syndrome affecting approximately 0.1% of the at risk population in the UK which equates to approximately 70000 sufferers. Data from a number of studies have demonstrated the heritability of this disorder, however it is only in the last few years that studies have begun to determine the involvement of particular(More)
Plasmon-resonant gold nanorods are demonstrated as low back-scattering albedo contrast agents for optical coherence tomography (OCT). We define the backscattering albedo, a , as the ratio of the backscattering to extinction coefficient. Contrast agents which modify a within the host tissue phantoms are detected with greater sensitivity by the differential(More)
