Ssrn As An Initial Revolution In Academic Knowledge Aggregation And Dissemination, David Bray, Sascha Vitzthum, Benn Konsynski

Sascha Vitzthum

Within this paper we consider our results of using the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) over a period of 18 months to distribute our working papers to the research community. Our experiences have been quite positive, with SSRN serving as a platform both to inform our colleagues about our research as well as inform us about related research (through email and telephoned conversations of colleagues who discovered our paper on SSRN). We then discuss potential future directions for SSRN to consider, and how SSRN might well represent an initial revolution in 21st century academic knowledge aggregation and dissemination. Our paper ...


The Effect Of A Motivational Intervention On Weight Loss Is Moderated By Level Of Baseline Controlled Motivation, Kelly H. Webber, Jeanne M. Gabriele, Deborah F. Tate, Mark B. Dignan 2010 University of Kentucky

The Effect Of A Motivational Intervention On Weight Loss Is Moderated By Level Of Baseline Controlled Motivation, Kelly H. Webber, Jeanne M. Gabriele, Deborah F. Tate, Mark B. Dignan

Dietetics and Human Nutrition Faculty Publications

BACKGROUND: Clinic-based behavioral weight loss programs are effective in producing significant weight loss. A one-size-fits-all approach is often taken with these programs. It may be beneficial to tailor programs based on participants' baseline characteristics. Type and level of motivation may be an important factor to consider. Previous research has found that, in general, higher levels of controlled motivation are detrimental to behavior change while higher levels of autonomous motivation improve the likelihood of behavior modification.

METHODS: This study assessed the outcomes of two internet behavioral weight loss interventions and assessed the effect of baseline motivation levels on program success. Eighty ...

Domains Of Water Molecules Provide Mechanisms Of Potentization In Homeopathy, George Czerlinski, Tjalling Ypma 2010 Western Washington University

Domains Of Water Molecules Provide Mechanisms Of Potentization In Homeopathy, George Czerlinski, Tjalling Ypma

Mathematics

In homeopathy, high potentization means such high dilution that there is no longer even one molecule of the original active agent per gram of the mixture. Nevertheless such high dilutions apparently remain effective. We develop a possible mechanism for homeopathic potentization to explain this phenomenon. This mechanism consists of three consecutive processes: initiation, multiplication, and amplification. Initiation is the mechano-chemical generation, by strong shaking following each dilution step, of radicals which remain in existence by mutual stabilization in simultaneously formed electronic domains. Multiplication transfers electronic excitation level structures from the original homeopathic agent to these radical-containing domains, stabilizing them further ...

Ventricular Function, Myocardial Delayed Enhancement And Patient-Reported Quality Of Life In Adolescents And Adults With Repaired Tetralogy Of Fallot, Jimmy C. Lu, Timothy B. Cotts, Prachi P. Agarwal, Anil K. Attili, Adam L. Dorfman 2010 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

Ventricular Function, Myocardial Delayed Enhancement And Patient-Reported Quality Of Life In Adolescents And Adults With Repaired Tetralogy Of Fallot, Jimmy C. Lu, Timothy B. Cotts, Prachi P. Agarwal, Anil K. Attili, Adam L. Dorfman

Internal Medicine Presentations

INTRODUCTION: In patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), right ventricular myocardial delayed enhancement (MDE) and diastolic dysfunction are common, and have been associated with decreased exercise capacity and increased arrhythmia. Predictors of quality of life (QOL) have not been reported in this population.

PURPOSE: We assessed the hypothesis that a greater degree of MDE in adolescents and adults with repaired TOF would correlate with diastolic dysfunction and decreased QOL.

Bitc Sensitizes Pancreatic Adenocarcinomas To Trail-Induced Apoptosis, Christina A. Wicker, Ravi P. Sahu, Kashmira Kulkarni-Datar, Sanjay K. Srivastava, Thomas L. Brown 2010 Wright State University - Main Campus

Bitc Sensitizes Pancreatic Adenocarcinomas To Trail-Induced Apoptosis, Christina A. Wicker, Ravi P. Sahu, Kashmira Kulkarni-Datar, Sanjay K. Srivastava, Thomas L. Brown

Neuroscience, Cell Biology & Physiology Faculty Publications

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is an aggressive cancer with a greater than 95% mortality rate and short survival after diagnosis. Chemotherapeutic resistance hinders successful treatment. This resistance is often associated with mutations in codon 12 of the K-Ras gene (K-Ras 12), which is present in over 90% of all pancreatic adenocarcinomas. Codon 12 mutations maintain Ras in a constitutively active state leading to continuous cellular proliferation. Our study determined if TRAIL resistance in pancreatic adenocarcinomas with K-Ras 12 mutations could be overcome by first sensitizing the cells with Benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC). BITC is a component of cruciferous vegetables and a cell cycle ...


Spinal Manipulation For Dysmenorrhoea (Review), Michelle Proctor, Wayne Hing, Trina Johnson, Patricia Murphy, Julie Brown 2010 Auckland University of Technology

Spinal Manipulation For Dysmenorrhoea (Review), Michelle Proctor, Wayne Hing, Trina Johnson, Patricia Murphy, Julie Brown

Wayne Hing

Background: Dysmenorrhoea (occurrence of painful menstrual cramps of uterine origin) is a common gynaecological condition. The character of pain from musculoskeletal dysfunction can be very similar to gynaecological pain by presenting cyclicly and being altered by hormonal changes associated with menstruation. Medical treatment for dysmenorrhoea usually comprises anti-inflammatory drugs, oral contraceptives, or surgical intervention. Spinal manipulation is a non-medical intervention. It has been suggested that manipulation of the vertebrae may increase spinal mobility thus improving pelvic blood supply and facilitating pain relief.

Objectives: To determine the safety and efficacy of spinal manipulative interventions for the treatment of dysmenorrhoea when compared ...

Predicting Low Dose Effects For Chemicals In High Through-Put Studies, Edward J. Stanek, E. J. Calabrese 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Predicting Low Dose Effects For Chemicals In High Through-Put Studies, Edward J. Stanek, E. J. Calabrese

Edward J. Stanek

High through-put studies commonly use automated systems with 96-well plates in which multiple chemicals are tested at multiple doses using log-2 dose increments after a suitable incubation period. There are typically multiple (ranging from five to eleven) doses on each chemical, and occasionally plate replications of the dose-response studies. The target endpoint for such studies is typically the LC50, but for some chemicals, there may be multiple doses below a benchmark dose where there is no apparent adverse response relative to control response. We show how an estimation approach can lead to clearly interpretable results about response in the low ...

Aging-In-Place Research At Orcatech: Making Sense Of The Data, Tamara Hayes

Systems Science Friday Noon Seminar Series

The Oregon Center for Aging and Technology (ORCATECH) seeks to facilitate successful aging and reduce the cost of healthcare by establishing the evidence base for technologies supporting aging-in-place research and care. This is done through pilot studies evaluating the role of the technologies, as well as large longitudinal studies in which sensors are placed in the homes of community-dwelling elders to monitor daily patterns of activity, walking speeds, medication adherence, and other behaviors. These sensors collect continuous data that reflect normal variability in behaviors as well as trends that may indicate problematic changes in cognition or mobility. Because data are ...

Two Plant Viral Suppressors Of Silencing Require The Ethylene-Inducible Host Transcription Factor Rav2 To Block Rna Silencing, Matthew W. Endres, Brian D. Gregory, Zhihuan Gao, Amy W. Foreman, Sizolwenkosi Mlotshwa, Xin Ge, Gail J. Pruss, Joseph R. Ecker, Lewis H. Bowman, Vicki Vance

Departmental Papers (Biology)

RNA silencing is a highly conserved pathway in the network of interconnected defense responses that are activated during viral infection. As a counter-defense, many plant viruses encode proteins that block silencing, often also interfering with endogenous small RNA pathways. However, the mechanism of action of viral suppressors is not well understood and the role of host factors in the process is just beginning to emerge. Here we report that the ethylene-inducible transcription factor RAV2 is required for suppression of RNA silencing by two unrelated plant viral proteins, potyvirus HC-Pro and carmovirus P38. Using a hairpin transgene silencing system, we find ...


Maintenance Of Visual Sensitivity In The Drosophila Eye: A Dissertation, Lina Ni 2010 University of Massachusetts Medical School Worcester

Maintenance Of Visual Sensitivity In The Drosophila Eye: A Dissertation, Lina Ni

GSBS Dissertations and Theses

High visual sensitivity is a common but important characteristic of animal eyes. It is especially critical for night vision. In animal eyes, photoreceptors are the first to receive the incoming rays of light and they convert the light signals to electrical signals before passing the information to interneurons in the eye and finally to the brain.

To function in dim light conditions, photoreceptors have developed high sensitivities to light. It is reported that both mammalian rod photoreceptors and Drosophilaphotoreceptors can detect single photons.

The high sensitivities of photoreceptors largely depend on a high content of rhodopsin, a light-stimulated G ...


The Effect Of Implicit Stereotypes On The Physical Performance In Older Adults, Gabriele R. Moriello 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

The Effect Of Implicit Stereotypes On The Physical Performance In Older Adults, Gabriele R. Moriello

Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to explore how stereotypes affect physical performance in older adults. A multigroup pretest post test design was utilized to determine whether implicit activation of positive or negative stereotypes has an effect on physical performance. Ninety six community dwelling older adults 65 years of age or older were included in the sample. Participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups: exposure to positive stereotypes of aging, exposure to negative stereotypes of aging, or a control condition. In order to simulate how older adults are exposed to stereotypes in real world settings, participants were primed ...
