It has been suggested that the absence or altered structure of Dp71, a C-terminal dystrophin gene encoded protein, is responsible for mental alterations observed in about 30% of Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients. Most of these patients have premature translational termination or point mutations at the C-terminal domain of this gene. In brain, Dp71 is the(More)
In this paper we examine the issue of selection bias in quasi-experimental (non-randomly controlled) educational studies. We provide background about common sources of selection bias and the issues involved in evaluating the outcomes of quasi-experimental studies. We describe two methods, matched sampling and propensity score matching, that can be used to(More)
The geomagnetic observatory of Juriquilla Mexico, located at longitude –100.45 • and latitude 20.70 • , and 1946 m a.s.l., has been operational since June 2004 compiling geomagnetic field measurements with a three component fluxgate magnetometer. In this paper, the results of the analysis of these measurements in relation to important seismic activity in(More)
