Is content addressable in the representation that subserves performance in multiple-object-tracking (MOT) experiments? We devised an MOT variant that featured unique, nameable objects (cartoon animals) as stimuli. There were two possible response modes: standard, in which observers were asked to report the locations of all target items, and specific, in(More)
Most animals have two centrioles in spermatids (the distal and proximal centrioles), but insect spermatids seem to contain only one centriole (Fuller 1993), which functionally resembles the distal centriole. Using fluorescent centriolar markers, we identified a structure near the fly distal centriole that is reminiscent of a proximal centriole (i.e.,(More)
Brain neurons and tissues respond to sublethal injury by activating endogenous protective pathways. Recently, following the failure of a large number of clinical trials for protective strategies against stroke that aim to inhibit a specific ischemia response pathway, endogenous neuroprotection has emerged as a more promising and hopeful strategy for(More)
The MidSouth eHealth Alliances health information exchange in Memphis, Tennessee provides access to data on almost 1 million individuals. The effort is the product of a comprehensive, integrated approach to technology and policy that emphasizes patient-centered use, low-cost, flexibility, and rigorous privacy and confidentiality policies and practices It is(More)
The membrane occupation and recognition nexus protein 1 (MORN1) is highly conserved among apicomplexan parasites and is associated with several structures that have a role in cell division. Here we dissected the role of MORN1 using the relatively simple budding process of Toxoplasma gondii as a model. Ablation of MORN1 in a conditional null mutant resulted(More)
The MidSouth e-Health Alliance is a health information exchange that has been in use in the Memphis, Tennessee region since May, 2006. This health information exchange took two years to develop from the time it was initially conceived. Following on the work done by the Indianapolis project, the MidSouth e-Health Alliance focused initially on implementations(More)
The design of a fully differential CMOS transconductance operational amplifier is presented. Topology selection, compensation, biasing, and common mode feedback are discussed. Design analysis and simulations are presented demonstrating that the amplifier exceeds the specifications for application in the first stage of a 13-bit pipelined A/D converter, while(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was to develop a cGMP grade of [(18)F]fluoropropoxytryptophan ((18)F-FTP) to assess tryptophan transporters using an automated synthesizer. METHODS Tosylpropoxytryptophan (Ts-TP) was reacted with K(18)F/kryptofix complex. After column purification, solvent evaporation, and hydrolysis, the identity and purity of the product were(More)
