The oxygen consumption rate (VO(2)) of Biomphalaria glabrata populations, using polarometric and manometric methods, when plotted against dried body mass as logarithmic co-ordinates, respectively, fell on a regression line with a slope between 0.933 and 1.02. The slope of the regression line for non-infected Schistosoma mansoni populations was found to be(More)
The immune system is implicated in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia, with elevated proinflammatory cytokine mRNAs found in the brains of ~40% of individuals with the disorder.

A novel computer architecture called Green16 is presented. Green16 is designed with frugal innovation principles, and offers a small but comprehensive instruction set. The design is pedagogically motivated and its instructions can be directly read by students, even if encoded in its hexadecimal form. The orthogonal instruction set is an ideal target for(More)
