Rodent seizure models have significantly contributed to our basic understanding of epilepsy. However, medically intractable forms of epilepsy persist and the fundamental mechanisms underlying this disease remain unclear. Here we show that seizures can be elicited in a simple vertebrate system e.g. zebrafish larvae (Danio rerio). Exposure to a common(More)
– There is a growing demand for systems that support independent living into advanced age. Technologies that monitor changes in the amount of time older adults spend in bed have the potential to detect critical changes in mobility and support earlier health intervention. Although under mattress sensors have been used previously, processing algorithms were(More)
The relationship between self-perception of physical attractiveness and four measures of sexual bullying behavior (victimization, perpetration, having friends who sexually bully, and observation of sexual bullying among peers at school) was examined in a sample of 396 middle school age students. Students who perceived themselves to be more physically(More)
Functional verification is one of the most critical stages of microprocessor design. Its goal is to achieve the maximum level of confidence in the conformance of a processor design to its specification. A powerful methodology is necessary in order to cope with the major technical challenge which is posed by functional verification of a processor, and which(More)
True natural language understanding requires the ability to identify and understand metaphorical utterances, which are ubiquitous in human communication of all kinds. At present, however, even the problem of identifying metaphors in arbitrary text is very much an unsolved problem, let alone analyzing their meaning. Furthermore, no current methods can be(More)
— Getting out of bed is a fundamental activity of daily living and one that supports independent living. Under mattress pressure sensor technology represents a way to monitor changes in this basic but critical mobility task among older adults at risk of institutionalization. However, little is known about normal variations in this ability over time in the(More)
Idiopathic scoliosis occurs in 3% of individuals and has an unknown etiology. The objective of this study was to identify rare variants that contribute to the etiology of idiopathic scoliosis by using exome sequencing in a multigenerational family with idiopathic scoliosis. Exome sequencing was completed for three members of this multigenerational family(More)
