BACKGROUND The cell adhesion molecule pair neuroligin1 (Nlg1) and beta-neurexin (beta-NRX) is a powerful inducer of postsynaptic differentiation of glutamatergic synapses in vitro. Because Nlg1 induces accumulation of two essential components of the postsynaptic density (PSD) - PSD-95 and NMDA receptors (NMDARs) - and can physically bind PSD-95 and NMDARs(More)
Cell adhesion molecules have been implicated as key organizers of synaptic structures, but there is still a need to determine how these molecules facilitate neurotransmitter receptor recruitment to developing synapses. Here, we identify erythrocyte protein band 4.1-like 3 (protein 4.1B) as an intracellular effector molecule of Synaptic Cell Adhesion(More)
Recent observations in the theory of verse and empirical metrics have suggested that constructing a verse line involves a pattern-matching search through a source text, and that the number of found elements (complete words totaling a specified number of syllables) is given by dividing the total number of words by the mean number of syllables per word in the(More)
The course web site has been available since mid August. You will find a great deal of useful information there. We will use Piazza to communicate as a group. Two instructors are listed: Robert Constable, a long term Cornell CS professor, and Michael George, about to graduate with a Cornell PhD in programming languages and security. The large course staff(More)
The mathematical distinction between prose and verse may be detected in writings that are not apparently lineated, for example in T. S. Eliot's Burnt Norton, and Jim Crace's Quarantine. In this paper we offer comments on appropriate statistical methods for such work, and also on the nature of formal innovation in these two texts. Additional remarks are made(More)
In this paper we build on earlier observations and theory regarding word length frequency and sequential distribution to develop a mathematical characterization of some of the language features distinguishing isometrically lineated text from unlineated text, in other words the features distinguishing isometrical verse from prose. It is shown that the(More)
