Comparison of boreal ecosystem model sensitivity to variability in climate and forest site parametersDownload
Ecosystem models are useful tools for evaluating environmental controls on carbon and water cycles under past or future conditions. In this paper we compare annual carbon and water fluxes from nine boreal spruce forest ecosystem models in a series of sensitivity simulations. For each comparison,...
Pyranopterin Coordination Controls Molybdenum Electrochemistry in Escherichia coli Nitrate ReductaseDownload
Molybdenum is an essential trace element for most species on the earth. Molybdoenzymes (enzymes containing Molybdenum) play diverse roles in human health, global geochemical cycles, and bacterial metabolism. Interestingly, nitrate reductase (NarGHI) isolated from the common gut bacterium...
Respiration, Acid/Base, Ammonia and Ionoregulatory Strategies in the Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus stoutii)Download
Hagfish feed on putrefied carrion, which poses several environmental challenges to the scavenger including hypoxia (Low PO2), hypercapnia (high PCO2) and high environmental ammonia (HEA). To any other organism, these conditions would be physiologically challenging; however, hagfish seem to have...
Respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory adjustments to changes in vocal loudness in typically developing children and children with spastic-type cerebral palsyDownload
This study explored the physiological adjustments made by the speech mechanism when sustained maximum phonations and sentences differing in vocal loudness were produced by typically developing children and children with cerebral palsy (CP). Respiratory adjustments (lung volume initiation,...
The Roles of the Respiratory Oscillators: Effects of Optogenetics and Cholinergic Perturbations on the Respiratory FunctionsDownload
Previous data have revealed the important and fundamental role in respiratory control of two groups of brainstem neurons: the preBötzinger Complex (preBötC) and the retrotrapezoid / parafacial respiratory group (RTN/pFRG). The preBötC which functions as the inspiratory oscillator, essential for...
The use of a volitional airway protection technique by a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cognitive impairment
The use of a volitional airway protection technique by a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cognitive impairmentDownload
The purpose of this pilot study is to determine if an individual with ALS and frontotemporal lobar dementia can learn a volitional airway protection technique and, if so, does this treatment have a beneficial effect on respiration and swallowing?
