Calcium action potentials in hair cells pattern auditory neuron activity before hearing onset
We found rat central auditory neurons to fire action potentials in a precise sequence of mini-bursts before the age of hearing onset. This stereotyped pattern was initiated by hair cells in theExpand

Rediscovering black phosphorus as an anisotropic layered material for optoelectronics and electronics.
Graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) are the two major types of layered materials under intensive investigation. However, the zero-bandgap nature of graphene and the relatively lowExpand

Melanopsin Signaling in Mammalian Iris and Retina
Non-mammalian vertebrates have an intrinsically photosensitive iris and thus a local pupillary light reflex (PLR). In contrast, it is thought that the PLR in mammals generally requires neuronalExpand

Outcome of delirium in critically ill patients: systematic review and meta-analysis
Objectives To determine the relation between delirium in critically ill patients and their outcomes in the short term (in the intensive care unit and in hospital) and after discharge from hospital.Expand

Spontaneous Activity of Cochlear Hair Cells Triggered by Fluid Secretion Mechanism in Adjacent Support Cells
Spontaneous electrical activity of neurons in developing sensory systems promotes their maturation and proper connectivity. In the auditory system, spontaneous activity of cochlear inner hair cellsExpand

An Ambipolar Virtual-Source-Based Charge-Current Compact Model for Nanoscale Graphene Transistors
A compact physics-based ambipolar-virtual-source (AVS) model is presented that describes carrier transport in both unipolar and ambipolar regimes in quasi-ballistic graphene field-effect transistorsExpand

US emergency department visits for fireworks injuries, 2006-2010.
BACKGROUND Most literature regarding fireworks injuries are from outside the United States, whereas US-based reports focus primarily on children and are based on datasets which cannot provideExpand

Spontaneous activity in the developing auditory system
Spontaneous electrical activity is a common feature of sensory systems during early development. This sensory-independent neuronal activity has been implicated in promoting their survival andExpand

Grand-canonical-like molecular-dynamics simulations by using an adaptive-resolution technique
In this work, we provide a detailed theoretical analysis, supported by numerical tests, of the reliability of the adaptive resolution simulation (AdResS) technique in sampling the Grand Canonical ensemble. Expand
