Caenorhabditis elegans is the only animal for which a detailed neural connectivity diagram has been constructed. However, synaptic polarities in this diagram, and thus, circuit functions are largely unknown. Here, we deciphered the likely polarities of seven pre-motor neurons implicated in the control of worm's locomotion, using a combination of(More)
The Lagrange formalism was implemented to derive the equations of motion for the physics-based united-residue (UNRES) force field developed in our laboratory. The C(alpha)...C(alpha) and C(alpha)...SC (SC denoting a side-chain center) virtual-bond vectors were chosen as variables. The velocity Verlet algorithm was adopted to integrate the equations of(More)
A symplectic multiple-time-step (MTS) algorithm has been developed for the united-residue (UNRES) force field. In this algorithm, the slow-varying forces (which contain most of the long-range interactions and are, therefore, expensive to compute) are integrated with a larger time step, termed the basic time step, and the fast-varying forces are integrated(More)
The influence that atmospheric conditions might have on the efficiency of the spread of influenza virus is important for epidemiological and evolutionary research. However, it has not been satisfactorily recognized and quantified so far. Here we provide a statistical model of influenza transmission between individuals. It has been derived from the results(More)
In this study we describe a simulation platform used to create a virtual society of Poland, with a particular emphasis on contact patterns arising from daily commuting to schools or workplaces. In order to reproduce the map of contacts, we are using a geo-referenced Agent Based Model. Within this framework, we propose a set of different stochastic(More)
A self-consistent charge density-functional based tight binding method (SCC DFT TB) [1] is applied to study the phosphoryl-transfer reaction in the active site of protein kinase A (cAMP-dependent protein kinase). Test SCC-DFTB calculations for a model phosphoester system were compared with more advanced DFT B3LYP/6-31D+(d,p) calculations. It appeared that(More)
OBJECTIVE This exploratory study provided a proof of concept of a new procedure using multivariate electroencephalographic (EEG) topographic markers of cortical connectivity to discriminate normal elderly (Nold) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) individuals. METHOD The new procedure was tested on an existing database formed by resting state eyes-closed EEG(More)
