Bounded Complete Embedding Graphs 

Aust, Jennifer Katherine (2015-07-21)
In the study of graph embeddings, there is particular interest in small embeddings and in bounds on the minimum number of vertices that must be added in order to achieve an embedding of a particular design. We introduce ...

A bout analysis reveals age-dependent methylmercury neurotoxicity and nimodipine neuroprotection: Implications for the role of calcium homeostasis in aging 

Shen, Andrew (2016-07-20)
Learning and sensorimotor function decline in normal aging and these deficits may be related to elevations in intracellular calcium (Ca2+) levels [Ca2+]i. The neurotoxicity of methylmercury (MeHg), a ubiquitous environmental ...
