Recent advances in high-throughput technology facilitate massive data collection and sharing, enabling neuroscientists to explore the brain across a large range of spatial scales. One such form of high-throughput data collection is the construction of large-scale mosaic volumes using light microscopy (Chow et al., 2006; Price et al., 2006). With this(More)
A great deal of understanding into the behaviour of composite steel-concrete structures in fire has been developed since the Cardington frame fire tests (UK) 1990s. This has now been broadened so that structures in fire design has a real engineering basis and is not reliant on results from single element testing in the standard furnace. Several projects(More)

Resource-intensive parallel applications are typically developed to target either workstation clusters or parallel supercomputers. In this paper, we describe a strategy that leverages the advantages of both types of platforms to improve the performance of a parallel tomography application. We demonstrate that this strategy promotes superior application(More)
The effects of adrenaline on kinetically-distinct compartments of exchangeable calcium in the spontaneously-beating perfused rat heart were investigated under steady-state conditions using a 45Ca2+ outflow technique together with a nonlinear least-squares curve fitting procedure and 51Cr-EDTA to monitor the loss of freely-diffusible Ca2+ from the(More)
For more than 20 years, countries and their agencies which monitor radionuclide discharge sites and storage facilities have relied on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Standard Reference Material (SRM) 4355 Peruvian Soil. Its low fallout contamination makes it an ideal soil blank for measurements associated with(More)
The kinetic properties of exchangeable Ca2+ in isolated guinea-pig heart mitochondria were studied at 25 degrees C in the presence of 0.9 mM free Mg2+, ATP, phosphate ions and 0.4 - 0.5 microM free Ca2+ using a 45Ca2+ exchange technique. The simplest system which was found to be consistent with the data was one in which two kinetically-distinct compartments(More)
