—Anomalous effects of human intention on the output of electronic random event generators (REGs) have been well established at the PEAR laboratory and elsewhere. A simple model of this effect as a change in the binary probability of the REG digits would predict that larger statistical yield can be achieved simply by processing more bits. This hypothesis was(More)
Platelets are relatively short-lived, anucleated cells that are essential for proper hemostasis. The regulation of platelet survival in the circulation remains poorly understood. The process of platelet activation and senescence in vivo is associated with processes similar to those observed during apoptosis in nucleated cells, including loss of(More)
The ability of neutrophils to migrate through three-dimensional (3-D) tissues in response to chemical stimuli is critical to their host defense function. However, studies characterizing stimulated migration in vitro have been largely limited to two-dimensional (2-D) surfaces. In this study, we have employed direct observation methods to quantify human(More)
The 130-kDa bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) glycoprotein GVP 6 was found to cross-react immunologically with the herpes simplex glycoprotein gB. Antibodies in polyclonal serum against gB immunoprecipitated GVP 6 and its cleavage products from a lysate of BHV-1-infected cells. Conversely, polyclonal serum against GVP 6 precipitated gB from HSV-1-infected cell(More)
— Strong correlations between output distribution means of a variety of random binary processes and pre-stated intentions of some 100 individual human operators have been established over a 12-year experimental program. More than 1000 experimental series, employing four different categories of random devices and several distinctive protocols, show(More)
— Effect sizes achieved by human operators in random event generator anomalies experiments show correlations with the ordinal positions of the experimental series in both the collective and individual databases. Specifically, there are statistically significant tendencies for operators to produce better scores over their first series, then to fall off in(More)
— Portable random event generators with software to record and index continuous sequences of binary data in field situations are found to produce anomalous outputs when deployed in various group environments. These "FieldREG" systems have been operated under formal protocols in ten separate venues, all of which subdivide naturally into temporal segments,(More)
—Experiments with a "Random Mechanical Cascade" (RMC) apparatus have yielded anomalous results correlated with pre-stated intentions of human operators. Based upon a common statistical demonstration device, this machine allows 9000 polystyrene balls to drop through a matrix of 330 pegs, scattering them into 19 collecting bins with a population distribution(More)
Voltage-sensitive cation-selective ion channels of the voltage-gated ion channel (VGC) superfamily were examined by a combination of sequence alignment and phylogenetic tree construction procedures. Segments of the alpha-subunits of K+-selective channels homologous to the structurally elucidated KcsA channel of Streptomyces lividans were multiply aligned,(More)
