Selective dissociation between core and extended regions of the face processing network in congenital prosopagnosia.
The distributed face network in human individuals with congenital prosopagnosia is characterized and selective disruptions in neural circuitry in CP are elucidated to offer an explanation for the known differential difficulty in identity versus emotional expression recognition in many individuals with CP.

Amygdala lesions disrupt modulation of functional MRI activity evoked by facial expression in the monkey inferior temporal cortex
It is shown that, in monkeys, damage to the amygdala, a brain structure that is central to the expression of emotion, significantly disrupts the processing of emotional facial expression in high-level visual cortical areas involved in face recognition. Expand
Four distinct types of dehydration stress memory genes in Arabidopsis thaliana
The results reveal the unknown, hitherto, existence of four distinct transcription memory response types in a plant and provide genome-wide characterization of memory and non-memory dehydration stress response genes in A.thaliana. Expand
Down-regulation of AUXIN RESPONSE FACTORS 6 and 8 by microRNA 167 leads to floral development defects and female sterility in tomato
Summary Investigations into the role of tomato ARF6 and ARF8 reveal that they are critical components in floral and gynoecium development before anthesis.
H3K27me3 and H3K4me3 chromatin environment at super-induced dehydration stress memory genes of Arabidopsis thaliana.
The novel aspect of the H3K27me3 function observed at specific dehydration stress memory genes, in contrast to its well-known role as a chromatin repressive mechanism at developmentally regulated genes, did not prevent transcription from the dehydration stress-responding genes. Expand
Seasonal and spatial distribution of 4-tert-octylphenol, 4-nonylphenol and bisphenol A in the Huangpu River and its tributaries, Shanghai, China
Ecological risk assessment indicated that NP was the only one of the three pollutants with the potential to influence local aquatic organisms and the results of this study provide scientific support for control of these pollutants. Expand
Dehydration stress memory genes of Zea mays; comparison with Arabidopsis thaliana
Evidence that monocot and eudicot plants, two lineages that have diverged 140 to 200 M years ago, display similar abilities to ‘remember’ a dehydration stress and to modify their transcriptional responses, accordingly is shown. Expand
Synthesis of cyclopropane fatty acid and its effect on freeze-drying survival of Lactobacillus bulgaricus L2 at different growth conditions
It was concluded that the improved cryotolerance observed during freeze-drying would be associated with an increase in cycC19:0 content and cycSFA:0/SFA ratio and vice versa. Expand
Application of ultrasound-assisted surfactant-enhanced emulsification microextraction for the determination of some organophosphorus pesticides in water samples.
The established UASEME-HPLC-DAD method has been successfully applied for the determination of the OPs in real water samples and high enrichment factors were achieved. Expand
Combustion characteristics of alternative gaseous fuels
Abstract Fundamental flame properties of mixtures of air with hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and C1–C4 saturated hydrocarbons were studied both experimentally and numerically. The fuel mixtures wereExpand
