This study sought to replicate Herbert et al. (2003a), which found increased overall white matter (WM) volume in subjects with autism, even after controlling for head size differences. To avoid the possibility that greater WM volume in autism is merely an epiphenomena of macrocephaly overrepresentation associated with the disorder, the current study(More)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative syndrome which has no known cause, except for a small proportion of cases which are genetically inherited. The development of ALS likely involves both genetic and environmental risk factors. Environmental risk factors implicated in ALS have included heavy metals, trauma, pesticides, electrical(More)
On June 18, 2001 a powerful (F-3) tornado struck the village of Siren and other parts of Burnett County in northwestern Wisconsin, leaving a multi-million dollar swath of destruction more than 40 km long through a heavily forested area. This storm resulted in three deaths, eight serious injuries, complete destruction of 147 homes and damage to 451 others.(More)
The recent release of version 2.0-8 of the BayesMendel package contains an updated BRCAPRO risk prediction model, which includes revised modeling of contralateral breast cancer (CBC) penetrance, provisions for pedigrees of mixed ethnicity and an adjustment for mastectomies among family members. We estimated penetrance functions for CBC by a combination of(More)
This file was created by scanning the printed publication. Text errors identified by the software have been corrected: however some errors may remain. Abstract: We describe the process by which the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network standardised their metadata through the adoption of the Ecological Metadata Language (EML). We describe the(More)
Models for malaria transmission are usually compared based on the quantities tracked, the form taken by each term in the equations, and the qualitative properties of the systems at equilibrium. Here five models are compared in detail in order to develop a set of performance measures that further illuminate the differences among models. Five models of(More)
Remote sensing, geographic information systems, spatial analysis Satellite-based monitoring of hydrology and lake water quality Environmental applications of synthetic aperture radar and SAR interferometry Facilitating the adoption of geospatial science and technology in the curriculum
For junior/graduate-level courses in Remote Sensing in Geography, Geology, Forestry, and Biology.This text focuses exclusively on the art and science of digital image processing of satellite and aircraft-derived remotely-sensed data for resource management. Extensively illustrated, it explains how to extract biophysical information from remote sensor data(More)
