BACKGROUND Surveys have generally found that individuals more likely to use complementary and alternative medicine are female, live in the western United States, are likely to have a health complaint, and have a higher socioeconomic status than do nonusers. What is not known is the extent to which those who use complementary and alternative medicine also(More)
To patients who have lost the functionality of their hands as a result of a severe spinal cord injury or brain stroke, the development of new techniques for grasping is indispensable for reintegration and independency in daily life. Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) of residual muscles can reproduce the most dominant grasping tasks and can be(More)
As more applications migrate to the cloud, and as "big data" edges into even more production environments, the performance and simplicity of exchanging data between compute nodes/devices is increasing in importance. An issue central to distributed programming, yet often under-considered, is serialization or pickling, <i>i.e.</i>, persisting runtime objects(More)
This study combined parent and observational measures to examine the association between aberrant sensory features and restricted, repetitive behaviors in children with autism (N=67) and those with developmental delays (N=42). Confirmatory factor analysis was used to empirically validate three sensory constructs of interest: hyperresponsiveness,(More)
Functional programming (FP) is regularly touted as the way forward for bringing parallel, concurrent, and distributed programming to the mainstream. The popularity of the rationale behind this viewpoint has even led to a number of object-oriented (OO) programming languages outside the Smalltalk tradition adopting functional features such as lambdas and(More)

Rapid repair of plasma membrane wounds is critical for cellular survival. Muscle fibers are particularly susceptible to injury, and defective sarcolemma resealing causes muscular dystrophy. Caveolae accumulate in dystrophic muscle fibers and caveolin and cavin mutations cause muscle pathology, but the underlying mechanism is unknown. Here we show that(More)
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have launched a scale shift in higher education, with several individual MOOCs now boasting tens or hundreds of thousands of participants worldwide. Our MOOC on the principles of functional programming has more than 100,000 registered students to date, and boasts one of the highest rates of completion (19.2%) for its(More)
The excitatory amino acid glutamate plays an important role in the development of neuronal sensitization and the ionotropic N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) is one of the major receptors involved. The objective of this study was to use a cat model of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) to investigate the expression of the NR1 and NR2A subunits of(More)
1 Overview Spores are designed to avoid problems of closures. This is done using two mechanisms: the spore shape and context bounds for the spore's environment. A spore is a closure with a specific shape that dictates how the environment of a spore is declared. In general, a spore has the following shape: spore { val y1: S1 = <expr1> ... A spore consists of(More)
