Alveolar regenerative gene expression is unidentified partly because its onset, after a regenerative stimulus, is unknown. Toward addressing this void, we used a mouse model in which calorie restriction produces alveolar loss, and ad libitum access to food after calorie restriction induces alveolar regeneration. We selected four processes (cell replication,(More)
— Robots that engage in social behaviors benefit greatly from possessing tools that allow them to manipulate the course of an interaction. Using a non-anthropomorphic social robot and a simple counting game, we examine the effects that empathy-generating robot dialogue has on participant performance across three conditions. In the self-directed condition,(More)
Testicular germ cell tumors and, in particular, seminomas are exquisitely radiation and chemotherapy-sensitive and most presentations are highly curable. In recent years the management focus has been on reducing late sequelae of treatment. For Stage I disease surveillance and adjuvant carboplatin, chemotherapy has become an option. The efficacy of(More)
This project investigates the effects of gender in a human-robot collaboration interaction. In the experiment, participants completed four Sudoku-like puzzles with a robot from which they could verbally elicit help. The robot was given the gendered characteristics of a gendered computer generated voice and either the name Charlotte (female condition) or(More)
We present an opportunity for the visual sensing of depth and 3D velocity using a passive sensor that has extremely low power requirements. This opportunity comes from a new mathematical constraint, which we derive, that relates depth and velocity to spatial and temporal derivatives of image values captured by a coded-aperture camera that observes a moving(More)
