Studies of saccadic suppression and induced motion have suggested separate representations of visual space for perception and visually guided behavior. Because these methods required stimulus motion, subjects might have confounded motion and position. We separated cognitive and sensorimotor maps without motion of target, background, or eye, with an "induced(More)
The current study examined the effects of age and gender on emotional and nonemotional expression using an experimental word list generation (WLG) task (also referred to in the literature as verbal fluency) from the New York Emotion Battery (Borod, Welkowitz, & Obler, 1992). Subjects were 28 young ( M = 29.6 years), 28 middle-aged (M = 49.8 years), and 28(More)
Several recent studies reported that Krüppel-like factor (KLF)2 controls trafficking, development, and function of B cells. Conditional B cell KLF2 knockout mice have increased numbers of marginal zone B cells and decreased numbers of B1 phenoytpe cells. However, it was unclear whether KLF2 is required for B1 B cell development, survival, or phenotypic(More)
This report examines the viability of the use of passengers transit infrastructure for freight movement. As a case study, the economic feasibility of the use of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system for FedEx Express cargo movement is examined. A qualitative discussion first introduces the various considerations that must be made to accommodate the(More)
Death receptor 5 (DR5) is an apoptosis-inducing member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, whose activity has been linked to membrane cholesterol content. Upon ligand binding, DR5 forms large clusters within the plasma membrane that have often been assumed to be manifestations of receptor co-localization in cholesterol-rich membrane domains.(More)
This report examines the impact and feasibility of using an urban railway system for freight movement, in particular, the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system for FedEx Express air cargo movement. Based on the framework constructed in the study's last phase, social impact (externalities), reliability, and infrastructure feasibility are considered here. The(More)
Invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells are innate T lymphocytes that promote host defense against a variety of microbial pathogens. Whether microbial ligands are required for their protective effects remains unclear. Here, we show that iNKT cells stimulate human-monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DCs) to produce inflammatory mediators in a manner that does(More)
In vitro biomimetic modeling of physio-logical structures bridges the gap between 2D in vitro culture and animal models. Lumens (tubular structures) are ubiquitous in vivo, being present in blood vessels, mammary ducts, and the lymphatic system. A method 'LumeNEXT' is presented here that allows the fabrication of 3D embedded lumens where size, structure,(More)
