Does calculation or word-problem instruction provide a stronger route to pre-algebraic knowledge?
(Journal of Educational Psychology, 2014-12)
The focus of this study was connections among 3 aspects of mathematical cognition at 2nd grade: calculations, word problems, and prealgebraic knowledge. We extended the literature, which is dominated by correlational work, ...
Large crowding zones in peripheral vision for briefly presented stimuli
(Journal of Vision, 2014-12)
When a target is flanked by distractors, it becomes more difficult to identify. In the periphery, this crowding effect extends over a wide range of target-flanker separations, called the spatial extent of interaction (EoI). ...
Effect of velocity boundary conditions on the heat transfer and flow topology in two-dimensional Rayleigh-Bénard convection
(Physical Review E, 2014-07)
The effect of various velocity boundary condition is studied in two-dimensional Rayleigh-Bénard convection. Combinations of no-slip, stress-free, and periodic boundary conditions are used on both the sidewalls and the ...
Effects of normative feedback for drinkers who consume less than the norm: Dodging the boomerang
(Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, 2014-06)
A number of alcohol interventions designed for college students attempt to correct exaggerated perceptions of alcohol use on college campuses through the use of personalized normative feedback. Personalized normative ...
Secondary Structures of rRNAs from All Three Domains of Life
(PLoS One, 2/5/2014)
Accurate secondary structures are important for understanding ribosomes, which are extremely large and highly complex. Using 3D structures of ribosomes as input, we have revised and corrected traditional secondary (2°) ...
Structure determination of noncanonical RNA motifs guided by 1H NMR chemical shifts
(Nature Methods, 3/2/2014)
Structured noncoding RNAs underlie fundamental cellular processes, but determining their three-dimensional structures remains challenging. We demonstrate that integrating 1H NMR chemical shift data with Rosetta de novo ...
Draft Genome Sequence of Deinococcus phoenicis, a Novel Strain Isolated during the Phoenix Lander Spacecraft Assembly
(Genome Announcements, 4/24/2014)
Deinococcus phoenicis strain 1P10MET is a radiation- and desiccation-resistant bacterium isolated from a cleanroom facility where the Phoenix Lander spacecraft was assembled. In order to facilitate investigations of the ...
Physical Growth and Nonverbal Intelligence: Associations in Zambia
(Journal of Pediatrics, 11/1/2014)
Objective: To investigate normative developmental body mass index (BMI) trajectories and associations of physical growth indicators—height, weight, head circumference (HC), and BMI—with nonverbal intelligence in an ...
How to Maximize the Value of Evidence-Based Decision Making and Minimize the Cost
(WorldatWork Journal, 2014)
The use of protective behaviors in relation to gambling among college students
(Journal of Gambling Studies, 2014-03)
The purpose of the current study was to evaluate a measure of gambling protective behaviors and examine the relationship between indices of gambling behavior, including frequency, quantity and problem severity, and the use ...
