Iron Porphyrins Embedded into a Supramolecular Porous Organic Cage for Electrochemical CO2 Reduction in Water.

Related Articles Iron Porphyrins Embedded into a Supramolecular Porous Organic Cage for Electrochemical CO2 Reduction in Water. Angew Chem Int Ed Engl. 2018 Jun 19;: Authors: Smith PT, Benke BP, Cao Z, Kim Y, Nichols EM, Kim K, Chang CJ Abstract We report the use of a porous organic cage composed of six iron tetraphenylporphyrins […]

Slingshot: cell lineage and pseudotime inference for single-cell transcriptomics.

Related Articles Slingshot: cell lineage and pseudotime inference for single-cell transcriptomics. BMC Genomics. 2018 Jun 19;19(1):477 Authors: Street K, Risso D, Fletcher RB, Das D, Ngai J, Yosef N, Purdom E, Dudoit S Abstract BACKGROUND: Single-cell transcriptomics allows researchers to investigate complex communities of heterogeneous cells. It can be applied to stem cells and their […]

Relationships Between Tau and Glucose Metabolism Reflect Alzheimer’s Disease Pathology in Cognitively Normal Older Adults.

Relationships Between Tau and Glucose Metabolism Reflect Alzheimer’s Disease Pathology in Cognitively Normal Older Adults. Cereb Cortex. 2018 Apr 18;: Authors: Adams JN, Lockhart SN, Li L, Jagust WJ Abstract Tau is associated with hypometabolism in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. In normal aging, the association between tau and glucose metabolism is not fully characterized. We […]

Fluorogenic Targeting of Voltage-Sensitive Dyes to Neurons.

Related Articles Fluorogenic Targeting of Voltage-Sensitive Dyes to Neurons. J Am Chem Soc. 2017 12 06;139(48):17334-17340 Authors: Liu P, Grenier V, Hong W, Muller VR, Miller EW Abstract We present a method to target voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes to specified cells using an enzyme-catalyzed fluorogenic reaction on cell surfaces. The dye/enzyme hybrids are composed of a […]

Cross-Task Contributions of Frontobasal Ganglia Circuitry in Response Inhibition and Conflict-Induced Slowing.

Cross-Task Contributions of Frontobasal Ganglia Circuitry in Response Inhibition and Conflict-Induced Slowing. Cereb Cortex. 2018 Apr 18;: Authors: Jahfari S, Ridderinkhof KR, Collins AGE, Knapen T, Waldorp LJ, Frank MJ Abstract Why are we so slow in choosing the lesser of 2 evils? We considered whether such slowing relates to uncertainty about the value of […]

Mice engineered to mimic a common Val66Met polymorphism in the BDNF gene show greater sensitivity to reversal in environmental contingencies.

Related Articles Mice engineered to mimic a common Val66Met polymorphism in the BDNF gene show greater sensitivity to reversal in environmental contingencies. Dev Cogn Neurosci. 2018 May 30;34:34-41 Authors: Vandenberg A, Lin WC, Tai LH, Ron D, Wilbrecht L PMID: 29909248 [PubMed – as supplied by publisher]

Foveal Crowding Resolved.

Related Articles Foveal Crowding Resolved. Sci Rep. 2018 Jun 15;8(1):9177 Authors: Coates DR, Levi DM, Touch P, Sabesan R Abstract Crowding is the substantial interference of neighboring items on target identification. Crowding with letter stimuli has been studied primarily in the visual periphery, with conflicting results for foveal stimuli. While a cortical locus for peripheral […]

Suboptimal eye movements for seeing fine details.

Related Articles Suboptimal eye movements for seeing fine details. J Vis. 2018 05 01;18(5):8 Authors: Agaoglu MN, Sheehy CK, Tiruveedhula P, Roorda A, Chung STL Abstract Human eyes are never stable, even during attempts of maintaining gaze on a visual target. Considering transient response characteristics of retinal ganglion cells, a certain amount of motion of […]

Treatment of amblyopia as a function of age.

Treatment of amblyopia as a function of age. Vis Neurosci. 2018 Jan;35:E015 Authors: Holmes JM, Levi DM Abstract Although historically, treatment of amblyopia has been recommended prior to closure of a critical window in visual development, the existence and duration of that critical window is currently unclear. Moreover, there is clear evidence, both from animal […]
