4.1 Proteins are a family of multifunctional cytoskeletal components (4.1R, 4.1G, 4.1N and 4.1B) derived from four related genes, each of which is expressed in the nervous system. Using subcellular fractionation, we have investigated the possibility that 4.1 proteins are components of forebrain postsynaptic densities, cellular compartments enriched in(More)
An important aspect of the function of the membrane-associated cytoskeleton has been suggested to be to trap and retain selected transmembrane proteins at points on the cell surface specified by cell adhesion molecules. In the process, cell adhesion molecules are cross-linked to each other, and so junctional complexes are strengthened. In this short review,(More)
We discuss our outreach efforts to introduce school students to network science and explain why networks researchers should be involved in such outreach activities. We provide overviews of modules that we have designed for these efforts, comment on our successes and failures, and illustrate the potentially enormous impact of such outreach efforts.

This thesis is dedicated to my family. To my parents, Lynn and John, for their unconditional love and support. Acknowledgements This thesis is the product of the combined effort of several people. Firstly, a world of thanks to my supervisor, Mason Porter, for his excellent guidance. Many thanks as well to David Jacoby, David Sims, and the Marine Biological(More)
