Dark matter in a simulated dwarf galaxy was replaced with primordial black holes and the resulting radiation is analyzed.
Building a Konstanz Information Miner (KNIME) pipeline to assess the utility of immunofluorescence computational analysis of ALCAM in bladder cancer
A KNIME pipeline for performing single-cell, multiplex immunofluorescence
SPRR3 Regulates the Cooperative Signaling of Integrins and Growth Factor Receptors to Modulate Cardiac Fibrosis
The SPRR3 protein does not affect individual integrin function in fibroblasts, supporting that SPRR3 influences the cooperative signaling of integrins and growth factor receptors.
Four variations of the PTHrP promoter were tested to determine which yielded the highest PTHrP expression in order to discern which region is most important for Gli2 activation of PTHrP in Tumor-Induced Bone Disease.
Simulating and quantifying the effects of visual deficits in virtual reality will help individuals, such as medical professionals, better under-stand those suffering from visual impairments.
Resilience Assessment of Power Distribution Systems: Preliminary Data Analysis of the Impact of Power Outages on Communities
Through linear modeling, impacts of natural disasters can be estimated to give decision makers information on the duration of a power outage.
An examination of the effect of gelatin concentration on Young’s Modulus preformed for future in vitro Blood Brain Barrier studies.
Cement-based materials were designed and printed on a novel extrusion system, then characterized.
Social fear and intrinsic amygdala function were investigated using the amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations (ALFF) and were found to be moderated by a distinct factor – biological sex.
A 2D computational model of an idealized ice sheet was created and validated to understand the relations between ice sheet-ice shelf geometry and mechanical stress.
The effect of SENSE Theatre as a therapy on language delays in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder may develop greater language ability following a novel theatre intervention known as SENSE Theatre.
A Multi-User Collaborative Game Created to Improve Cognitive and Physical Aspects and Socialization Skills of Individuals with Dementia
A multi-user collaborative game was created to improve the socialization skills and cognitive aspects of individuals with dementia.
In this report, we use the transportation problem, a classical optimization problem, to optimize police allocation and survival analysis to predict crime. By doing this, we minimize the overall response time for police officers.
The role of fructose in the expression of extracellular matrix markers and cytokines released by M1 and M2 macrophages that regulate the progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
The role of the sugar fructose on the induction of extracellular matrix proteins and inflammation in polarized macrophages.
Cortical Evoked Potentials Identify Compensatory Effects of Attention on Auditory Processing in Children and Adults
This study examines the effects of noise, attention, and age on neural processing of speech.
A machine learning algorithm was programmed and optimized to predict the activity of enhancer regions of DNA.
This is a prototype low-cost and easily accessible virtual reality calm room designed to help children with autism spectrum disorder in environments with high levels of sensory input.
