Parametrized surrogate models are used in alloy modeling to quickly obtain otherwise expensive properties such as quantum mechanical energies, and thereafter used to optimize, or simply compute, some alloy quantity of interest, e.g., a phase transition, subject to given constraints. Once learned on a data set, the surrogate can compute alloy properties(More)
A series of bioisosteric 4-(aminomethyl)-1-hydroxypyrazole (4-AHP) analogues of muscimol, a GABA(A) receptor agonist, has been synthesized and pharmacologically characterized at native and selected recombinant GABA(A) receptors. The unsubstituted 4-AHP analogue (2a) (EC(50) 19 μM, R(max) 69%) was a moderately potent agonist at human α(1)β(2)γ(2) GABA(A)(More)
PURPOSE Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of serotonin 2A (5-HT(2A)) receptors with agonist tracers holds promise for the selective labelling of 5-HT(2A) receptors in their high-affinity state. We have previously validated [(11)C]Cimbi-5 and found that it is a 5-HT(2A) receptor agonist PET tracer. In an attempt to further optimize the(More)
The cluster expansion enables fast alloy property computations especially useful for predicting alloy thermodynamics. It expands configurational alloy properties in basis functions called clusters with associated expansion coefficients called effective cluster interactions (ECI). The number of ECI depends on the symmetries of the system. Therefore, when(More)
Cluster expansions are simplified, Ising-like models for binary alloys in which vibrational and electronic degrees of freedom are coarse grained. The usual practice is to learn the parameters of the cluster expansion by fitting the energy they predict to a finite set of ab initio calculations. In some cases, experiments suggest that such approaches may lead(More)
2-(2',6'-Dimethoxy-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl)-N,N-dimethylethanamine has been identified as a potent ligand for the serotonin 7 (5-HT(7)) receptor. In this study, we describe the synthesis, radiolabeling and in vivo evaluation of [(11)C]2-(2',6'-dimethoxy-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl)-N,N-dimethylethanamine ([(11)C]Cimbi-806) as a radioligand for imaging brain 5-HT(7)(More)
