Understanding the sense of agency is a key challenge for the psychological and brain sciences. When an individual makes an action that is followed by an effect such as an auditory tone, there is a perceived compression in time of the interval between the action and the effect. Since this only occurs for intentional actions, this compression is termed(More)
Intentional binding is the perceived shortening of the time between a voluntary action and its consequent effect and has been suggested as an implicit measure of agency. This shortening has been linked to processes underlying action preparation and is also affected by post-movement feedback. Intentional binding has been demonstrated in joint action tasks(More)
Several heterosteroids containing a dihydroethisterone skeleton were prepared and shown to displace substance P in a receptor binding assay. Further biochemical (kinetic and Scatchard analyses) and pharmacological evaluation (substance P-induced plasma extravasation and salivation in the rat) of a representative example in this series (5a) established that(More)
The structures and the concentrations of all of the indolylic compounds that occur in the endosperm of the seeds of corn (Zea mays L.) are known. Thus, it should be possible to determine which, if any, of the indolylic compounds of the endosperm can be transported to the seedling in significant amounts and thus help identify the seed-auxin precursor of(More)
The reaction of the water-soluble carbodimide, 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide (EDC), with active papain in the presence of the nucleophile ethyl glycinate results in an irreversible inactivation of the enzyme. This inactivation is accompanied by the derivatization of the catalytically essential thiol group of the enzyme (Cys-25) and by the(More)
