  • Inherent bounds on forecast accuracy due to observation uncertainty caused by temporal sampling 

    Mittermaier, MP; Stephenson, David B. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-10)
    Synoptic observations are often treated as error-free representations of the true state of the real world. For example, when observations are used to verify numerical weather prediction (NWP) forecasts, forecast-observation ...
  • An inherently mass-conserving semi-implicit semi-Lagrangian discretisation of the shallow-water equations on the sphere 

    Zerroukat, M.; Wood, Nigel; Staniforth, A.; White, A.A.; Thuburn, John (Royal Meteorological Society, 2009)
    For the shallow-water equations on the sphere, an inherently mass-conserving semi-Lagrangian discretisation (SLICE) of the continuity equation is coupled with a semi-implicit semi-Lagrangian discretisation of the momentum ...
  • Inheritance, marriage, widowhood and remarriage: a comparative perspective on women and landholding in north-east Norfolk, 1440-1580 

    Whittle, Jane (Cambridge University Press, 1998)
    In medieval and early modern England, men's and women's rights to land were not equal. Sons were preferred over daughters in the inheritance of land. Marriage removed rights of property ownership from women and placed them ...
  • Inhibition of post-synaptic Kv7/KCNQ/M channels facilitates long-term potentiation in the hippocampus 

    Petrovic, MM; Nowacki, J; Olivo, V; Tsaneva-Atanasova, Krasimira; Randall, AD; Mellor, JR (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012)
    Activation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChR) facilitates the induction of synaptic plasticity and enhances cognitive function. In the hippocampus, M(1) mAChR on CA1 pyramidal cells inhibit both small conductance ...
  • Inhibition of the kinase WNK1/HSN2 ameliorates neuropathic pain by restoring GABA inhibition. 

    Kahle, KT; Schmouth, J-F; Lavastre, V; Latremoliere, A; Zhang, J; Andrews, N; Omura, T; Laganière, J; Rochefort, D; Hince, P; Castonguay, G; Gaudet, R; Mapplebeck, JCS; Sotocinal, SG; Duan, J; Ward, C; Khanna, AR; Mogil, JS; Dion, PA; Woolf, CJ; Inquimbert, P; Rouleau, GA (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2016-03-29)
    HSN2 is a nervous system-predominant exon of of the WNK1 kinase (HSN2-containing splice variant referred to as “WNK1/HSN2”) and is mutated in an autosomal recessive, inherited form of congenital pain insensitivity. We ...
  • Inhibitory action of novel hydrogen sulfide donors on bovine isolated posterior ciliary arteries 

    Kulkarni-Chitnis, M; Njie-Mbye, YF; Mitchell, L; Robinson, Jenaye; Whiteman, Matthew; Wood, ME; Opere, CA; Ohia, SE (Elsevier, 2015-04-03)
    In the present study, we investigate the inhibitory effect of novel H2S donors, AP67 and AP72 on isolated bovine posterior ciliary arteries (PCAs) under conditions of tone induced by an adrenoceptor agonist. Furthermore, ...
  • The inhibitory control reflex (article) 

    Verbruggen, Frederick; Best, Maisy; Bowditch, William A.; Stevens, Tobias; McLaren, Ian P.L. (Elsevier, 2014-08-19)
    Response inhibition is typically considered a hallmark of deliberate executive control. In this article, we review work showing that response inhibition can also become a ‘prepared reflex’, readily triggered by information ...
  • The inhibitory control reflex (dataset) 

    Verbruggen, Frederick; Best, Maisy; Bowditch, William A.; Stevens, Tobias; McLaren, Ian P.L. (University of Exeter, 2014-08-11)
    Behavioural data, eye movement data, and R scripts (analyses) for two behavioural experiments. Experiment documentation is included as well.​
  • Inhibitory Control Training and Disruptive Behaviour in Young People 

    Green, Joanna (University of ExeterCollege of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2017-04-25)
    Objective: Adolescence is a period of crucial neuropsychological development. Executive control functions (ECF) develop during adolescence and are constructs involving the planning, initiation, and regula¬tion of goal-directed ...
  • The Initial Distribution of Stars 

    Bressert, Eli Walter (University of ExeterCollege of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical SciencesPhysics and Astronomy, 2012-08-02)

  • Initial evaluation of the effects of aerosolized Florida red tide toxins (brevetoxins) in persons with asthma 

    Fleming, LE; Kirkpatrick, B; Backer, LC; Bean, JA; Wanner, A; Dalpra, D; Tamer, R; Zaias, J; Cheng, YS; Pierce, R; Naar, J; Abraham, W; Clark, R; Zhou, Y; Henry, MS; Johnson, D; Van De Bogart, G; Bossart, GD; Harrington, M; Baden, DG (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), 2005-05)
    Florida red tides annually occur in the Gulf of Mexico, resulting from blooms of the marine dinoflagellate Karenia brevis. K. brevis produces highly potent natural polyether toxins, known as brevetoxins, that activate ...
  • Initial training with difficult items does not facilitate category learning 

    Edmunds, CER; Milton, FN; Wills, AJ (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2017-08-28)
    In the phenomenon of transfer along a continuum (TAC), initial training on easy items facilitates later learning of a harder discrimination. TAC is a widely replicated cross-species phenomenon that is well predicted by ...
