Dissociations between noun and verb processing are not uncommon after brain injury; yet, precise psycholinguistic comparisons of nouns and verbs are hampered by the underrepresentation of verbs in published semantic word norms and by the absence of contemporary estimates for part-of-speech usage. We report herein imageability ratings and rating response(More)
Traditional robots rely for their function on computing, to store internal representations of their goals and environment and to coordinate sensing and any actuation of components required in response. Moving robotics to the single-molecule level is possible in principle, but requires facing the limited ability of individual molecules to store complex(More)
We present the development of a new graphical user interface driven molecular modeling, editing and visualization tool called Tiamat. Tiamat addresses the challenge of how to efficiently model large and complex DNA nanostructures. We describe the three major components of our system. First, we discuss design guidelines and data structures that form the(More)
This paper reports a new approach to estimating the extent to which words have predominant noun and verb usages which do not require human judgments about parts of speech. The Hyperspace Analog to Language model (HAL, Lund & Burgess, 1996) was used to computationally estimate noun vs verb usage based on the statistical regularities present in a large-scale(More)
Introduction Consider a scheduling scenario in a furniture factory where two robotic agents work together to apply finish to custom table pieces. Robot A is set up to paint, while Robot B must apply varnish. Both actions take an uncertain amount of time due to physical variation in the size and shape of the table components. Painting takes around six(More)
Mesenchymal stromal cells are multipotent cells found in a large number of adult tissues. Their ability to participate in the repair of these damaged tissues is the origin of the enthusiasm that they elicit in the field of cell therapy. It gradually became apparent that their ability to change a pathological environment is more related to their ability to(More)
