Application of frequentist and Bayesian models with extensive but low-resolution data to assess status of endangered Athabasca River rainbow trout.

Conserv Biol 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Zoology, Biodiversity Research Centre and Beaty Biodiversity Museum, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Boulevard, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6T 1Z4, Canada.

Use of extensive but low-resolution abundance data is common in the assessment of species at-risk status using quantitative decline criteria under IUCN and national endangered species legislation. Such data can be problematic for three reasons. First, statistical power to reject the null hypothesis of no change is often low because of small sample size and high sampling uncertainty leading to a high frequency of type II errors. Read More

Study on the file management method of data storage system for airborne radar.

R Soc Open Sci 2021 Jun 9;8(6):210221. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

School of Physics and Electronics, Hunan Normal University, Changsha 410081, People's Republic of China.

In order to solve the problem that the air-to-ground data transfer rate is much lower than the radar data rate, the onboard system is commonly used for storing the airborne radar data. However, there are two main problems in the data storage using the traditional file management method. The first is that the frequent data updating of the file allocation table (FAT) and the file directory table (FDT) cause a high frequency of address jumps among the discontinuous areas, which leads to a long response time.

Prediction of Successful Memory Encoding Based on Lateral Temporal Cortical Gamma Power.

Front Neurosci 2021 25;15:517316. Epub 2021 May 25.

Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Seoul National University, Seoul, South Korea.

Prediction of successful memory encoding is important for learning. High-frequency activity (HFA), such as gamma frequency activity (30-150 Hz) of cortical oscillations, is induced during memory tasks and is thought to reflect underlying neuronal processes. Previous studies have demonstrated that medio-temporal electrophysiological characteristics are related to memory formation, but the effects of neocortical neural activity remain underexplored.

Updated Review on the Diagnosis and Primary Management of Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizure Disorders.

Neuropsychiatr Dis Treat 2021 4;17:1825-1838. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Buenos Aires University, Ramos Mejía Hospital, Epilepsy Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) are paroxystic and episodic events associated with motor, sensory, mental or autonomic manifestations, which resemble epileptic seizures (ES), but are not caused by epileptogenic activity. PNES affect between 20% and 30% of patients attending at epilepsy centers and constitute a serious mental health problem. PNES are often underdiagnosed, undertreated and mistaken with epilepsy.

Commun Biol 2021 Jun 10;4(1):709. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology, Martinsried, Germany.

Diversity of cell-types that collectively shape the cortical microcircuit ensures the necessary computational richness to orchestrate a wide variety of behaviors. The information content embedded in spiking activity of identified cell-types remain unclear to a large extent. Here, we recorded spike responses upon whisker touch of anatomically identified excitatory cell-types in primary somatosensory cortex in naive, untrained rats. Read More

Observation of a prethermal discrete time crystal.

Science 2021 06;372(6547):1192-1196

Joint Quantum Institute, Department of Physics, and Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742, USA.

Extending the framework of statistical physics to the nonequilibrium setting has led to the discovery of previously unidentified phases of matter, often catalyzed by periodic driving. However, preventing the runaway heating that is associated with driving a strongly interacting quantum system remains a challenge in the investigation of these newly discovered phases. In this work, we utilize a trapped-ion quantum simulator to observe the signatures of a nonequilibrium driven phase without disorder-the prethermal discrete time crystal. Read More

Euglobulin clot lysis time reveals a high frequency of fibrinolytic activation in trauma.

Thromb Res 2021 May 31;204:22-28. Epub 2021 May 31.

Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine and Blood Research Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Activation of the fibrinolytic system plays a central role in the host response to trauma.

Specific activation of GluN1-N2B NMDA receptors underlies facilitation of cortical spreading depression in a genetic mouse model of migraine with reduced astrocytic glutamate clearance.

Neurobiol Dis 2021 Jun 7:105419. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Padova, 35131 Padova, Italy; Padova Neuroscience Center, University of Padova, CNR Institute of Neuroscience, 35131 Padova, Italy. Electronic address:

Migraine is a common but poorly understood sensory circuit disorder. Mouse models of familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM, a rare monogenic form of migraine with aura) show increased susceptibility to cortical spreading depression (CSD, the phenomenon that underlies migraine aura and can activate migraine headache mechanisms), allowing an opportunity to investigate the mechanisms of CSD and migraine onset. In FHM type 2 (FHM2) knock-in mice with reduced expression of astrocytic Na, K-ATPases, the reduced rate of glutamate uptake into astrocytes can account for the facilitation of CSD initiation.
