In this issue of Neuron, Han et al. (2014) develop powerful methods to visualize phagocytosis of Drosophila peripheral sensory neuron dendrites. Remarkably, epidermal cells rather than professional phagocytes are the primary mediators of debris clearance, using both familiar and new molecular players.
How organisms sense and respond to noxious temperatures is still poorly understood. Further, the mechanisms underlying sensitization of the sensory machinery, such as in patients experiencing peripheral neuropathy or injury-induced sensitization, are not well characterized. The genetically tractable Drosophila model has been used to study the cells and… (More)
In this paper, we describe the project management systems and workflows of a university research center. Using a feminist approach that values open collaboration, communication, and flattened hierarchies, we generated two distinct project management approaches to address issues of communication and task management.
In this poster, we describe a notation system developed for rapid usability testing. Using an agile development framework, this notation system gives both practitioners and researchers the tools necessary to generate and interpret user feedback in a timely manner to create better, more successful experiences for users.
The basic mechanisms underlying noxious cold perception are not well understood. We developed Drosophila assays for noxious cold responses. Larvae respond to near-freezing temperatures via a mutually exclusive set of singular behaviors-in particular, a full-body contraction (CT). Class III (CIII) multidendritic sensory neurons are specifically activated by… (More)
This poster tracks the ways social media users associate discourse surrounding typeface and cost of ink in order to analyze the circulation of sustainable design on social media and the implications for professional writers, technical communicators, and designers. I will track the circulation of Pixart's Printing "The True Cost of Printing in Comic Sans"… (More)
The ovarian responses of 2 groups of Merino ewes, 63 ewes of high (T) and 67 of low (0) fecundity, to 0, 375, 750, or 1500 intrauterine injections of pregnant mare's serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) on Day 13 or 15 of the estrous cycle were compared. 5 or 12 9 group ewes injected with PMSG failed to show estrous compared with 1 of the T ewes. Untreated T ewes… (More)
