Measles, canine distemper (CDV) and respiratory syncytial (RS) virus nucleocapsids were isolated and purified from infected cell cytoplasm, and virions were processed from the extracellular fluid of infected cell monolayers. Ultrastructurally the nucleocapsids possessed diameters of 17–18 nm with no differences noted between the RS nucleocapsids and other(More)
Cancer clinical trial (CCT) accrual and retention rates remain disproportionately low among African Americans. Awarenesss and access to trials are crucial facilitators of trial participation. Strategies developed within a community-based participatory framework (CBPR) are potential solutions to increase awareness and access to CCTs. In this study, we(More)
This paper describes the use of a unique “Learning and Feedbackˮ approach to customize cancer clinical trials education programs for Community Bridges, a peer training intervention designed for African-American communities in North Carolina. Generic community education modules were demonstrated with key community leaders who were designated as trainers.(More)
Individuals with grapheme-color synesthesia perceive colors, called concurrents, when processing alphanumeric stimuli. Concurrents may arise from cross activation between cortical language and color processing areas. Two experiments used an attentional blink (AB) paradigm to test whether production of concurrents is an automatic or attentiondemanding(More)
The present study investigated the relationship between object-based attention and visual short-term memory (VSTM). Three claims were investigated: (a) spatial attention and spatial STM share similar processing resources; (b) object-based attention and object STM share similar processing resources; and (c) both sets of processing resources are dissociable.(More)
Species of Mind seeks primarily to establish the credentials of cognitive ethology as an exciting and above all respectable branch of scientific inquiry. Difficulties in achieving the aims of cognitive ethology are not downplayed, but it is argued that they can be overcome sufficiently to sustain an empirical research program. An important subgoal is the(More)
