The normal pattern of innervation of the optic tectum has been studied autoradiographically in a series of chick embryos which were injected intraocularly with [3-H]proline at intervals between the 6th and 21st days of incubation. From the distribution of the radioactively labeled proteins transported in the rapid phase of axonal flow, it is evident that(More)
The time of origin of the cells in the isthmo-optic nucleus (ION--the nucleus of origin of centrifugal fibers to the avian retina) has been determined in the chick by a variant of the cumulative labeling method, using 3H-thymidine autoradiography. All the neurons of the ION are generated (i.e., pass through their last phase of DNA synthesis) over a 50-hour(More)
Kepler has found hundreds of Neptune-size (2–6R⊕) planet candidates within 0.5 AU of their stars. The nature of the vast majority of these planets is not known because their masses have not been measured. Using theoretical models of planet formation, evolution, and structure, we explore the range of minimum plausible masses for lowdensity exo-Neptunes. We(More)
The Kepler mission, combined with ground-based radial velocity (RV) follow-up and dynamical analyses of transit timing variations, has revolutionized the observational constraints on sub-Neptune-sized planet compositions. The results of an extensive Kepler follow-up program including multiple Doppler measurements for 22 planet-hosting stars more than(More)
A murine mammary carcinoma, which had a high potential for metastasis to the lungs, was established in culture, and from the parent line several clonally derived variants were isolated, showing different characteristics including metastatic potential. C1, a high metastatic clone, and C2, a low one, were selected for further study. When tumour cells were(More)
It is well-known that the light curve of a transiting planet contains information about the planet’s orbital period and size relative to the host star. More recently, it has been demonstrated that a tight constraint on an individual planet’s eccentricity can sometimes be derived from the light curve via the “photoeccentric effect,” the effect of a planet’s(More)
We characterize the eccentricity distribution of a sample of ∼ 50 short-period planet candidates using transit and occultation measurements from NASA’s Kepler Mission. First, we evaluate the sensitivity of our hierarchical Bayesian modeling and test its robustness to model misspecification using simulated data. When analyzing actual data assuming a Rayleigh(More)
