Recent work has considered corpus-based or statistical approaches to the problem of prepositional phrase a t tachment ambiguity. Typically, ambiguous verb phrases of the form v rip1 p rip2 are resolved through a model which considers values of the four head words (v, n l , p and 77,2). This paper shows that the problem is analogous to n-gram language models(More)
Human memory B cells comprise isotype-switched and nonswitched cells with both subsets displaying somatic hypermutation. In addition to somatic hypermutation, CD27 expression has also been considered a universal memory B cell marker. We describe a new population of memory B cells containing isotype-switched (IgG and IgA) and IgM-only cells and lacking(More)
Recent work has considered corpus-based or statistical approaches to the problem of prepositional phrase attachment ambiguity. Typically, ambiguous verb phrases of the form v np1 p np2 are resolved through a model which considers values of the four head words (v, n1, p and n2). This paper shows that the problem is analogous to n-gram language models in(More)
p120-catenin (p120) regulates cadherin turnover and is required for cadherin stability. This role is probably regulated by signaling events that induce p120 phosphorylation, but monitoring individual phosphorylation events and their consequences is technically challenging. Previously, we used phospho-tryptic peptide mapping to identify eight major sites of(More)
A diverse flora has been discovered in a dark clay lens in upland gravel in southern Maryland near Brandywine. More than 49 taxa have been identified in the assemblage, which includes leaves, seeds, fruits, pollen, and a Taxodium (bald cypress) trunk. The vegetation is dominated by deciduous trees and vines. Four taxa are now absent from North America but(More)
Ankle foot orthoses (AFO) are often used for patients who cannot generate a strong enough extension moment at the knee to allow functional gait. Orthotists often cut out portions of the AFO around the malleoli in order to improve comfort. There has been some question as to how this affects the stress distribution around the orthosis, the fatigue performance(More)
We have previously shown that tripolar concentric ring electrode (TCRE) Laplacian electroencephalography (tEEG) has significantly better signal-to-noise ratio, spatial resolution, and mutual information than disc electrode electroencephalography (EEG). This paper compares the EEG signals acquired simultaneously from the outer ring of the TCRE (oTCRE),(More)
This paper summarises the fourth year of software development by the UNSW team competing in the RoboCup 2002 Sony legged league. The team won the RoboCup 2002 Challenge and was placed second in the soccer tournament. We describe new developments in vision and localisation procedures for robot soccer, as well as innovations in locomotion and the design of(More)
This special article seeks to provide balance and clarity to the confusion brought about by the conclusions resulting from a recent study published in Archives of Internal Medicine by Mursu et al. (2011). An examination of three key limitations of the study provides context to why additional research is needed: (a) Nonusers were poorly defined; (b)(More)
