The 1 : √2 mode interaction and heteroclinic networks in Boussinesq convection
(Elsevier, 2007)Methods of equivariant bifurcation theory are applied to Boussinesq convection in a plane layer with stressfree horizontal boundaries and an imposed square lattice periodicity in the horizontal directions. We consider ... 
The 2012 Madeira dengue outbreak: epidemiological determinants and future epidemic potential
(Public Library of Science, 201408)Dengue, a vectorborne viral disease of increasing global importance, is classically associated with tropical and subtropical regions around the world. Urbanisation, globalisation and climate trends, however, are facilitating ... 
The 21st century decline in damaging European windstorms
(European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 20160829)A decline in damaging European windstorms has led to a reduction in insured losses in the 21st century. This decline is explored by identifying a damaging windstorm characteristic and investigating how and why this ... 
2D and 3D polar plume analysis from the three vantage positions of STEREO/EUVI A, B, and SOHO/EIT
(Springer Verlag, 20111117)Polar plumes are seen as elongated objects starting at the solar polar regions. Here, we analyze these objects from a sequence of images taken simultaneously by the three spacecraft telescopes STEREO/EUVI A and B, and ... 
3D electron density distribution in the solar corona during solar minima: assessment for more realistic solar wind modelling
(American Astronomical Society, 20151117)Knowledge of the electron density distribution in the solar corona put constraints on the magnetic field configurations for coronal modeling and on initial conditions for solar wind modeling. We work with polarized ... 
Accelerated diffusion in the centre of a vortex
(Cambridge University Press, 2001)The spiral windup and diffusive decay of a passive scalar in circular streamlines is considered. An accelerated diffusion mechanism operates to destroy scalar fluctuations on a time scale of order P1/3 times the turnover ... 
Acceleration of onedimensional mixing by discontinuous mappings
(Elsevier, 2002)The paper considers a simple class of models for mixing of a passive tracer into a bulk material that is essentially one dimensional. We examine the relative rates of mixing due to diffusion, stretch and fold operations ... 
Acetylcholine modulates gamma frequency oscillations in the hippocampus by activation of muscarinic M1 receptors
(Wiley, 20170312)Modulation of gamma oscillations is important for the processing of information and the disruption of gamma oscillations is a prominent feature of schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. Gamma oscillations are generated ... 
Achieving populationlevel immunity to rabies in freeroaming dogs in Africa and Asia
(Public Library of Science, 201411)Canine rabies can be effectively controlled by vaccination with readily available, highquality vaccines. These vaccines should provide protection from challenge in healthy dogs, for the claimed period, for duration of ... 
Active diffusion and microtubulebased transport oppose myosin forces to position organelles in cells.
(Nature Publishing Group, 20160602)Even distribution of peroxisomes (POs) and lipid droplets (LDs) is critical to their role in lipid and reactive oxygen species homeostasis. How even distribution is achieved remains elusive, but diffusive motion and directed ... 
Adaptation of fwave finite volume methods to the twolayer shallowwater equations in a moving vessel with a rigidlid
(Elsevier, 20160401)A numerical method is proposed to solve the twolayer inviscid, incompressible and immiscible 1D shallowwater equations in a moving vessel with a rigidlid with different boundary conditions based on the highresolution ... 
Adaptive anchoring model: how static and dynamic presentation of time series influence judgments and predictions
(Wiley, 20160406)When attempting to predict future events, people commonly rely on historical data. One psychological characteristic of judgmental forecasting of time series, established by research, is that when people make forecasts ... 
Adaptive Gain and Order Scheduling of Optimal Fractional Order PIλDμ Controllers with Radial Basis Function NeuralNetwork
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 20110812)Gain and order scheduling of fractional order (FO) PI{\lambda}D{\mu} controllers are studied in this paper considering four different classes of higher order processes. The mapping between the optimum PID/FOPID controller ... 
Adaptive tracking control of a virtual player in the mirror game
(IEEE, 2014)The coordination of interpersonal rhythmic movements is of great significance due to its potential relevance to human motor rehabilitation. In this paper we consider the problem of designing a controller able to drive a ... 
Advectioncondensation code
(University of Exeter, 20170317)Matlab code for the manuscript Advectioncondensation of water vapour in a model of coherent stirring 
Aerosol direct radiative effect of smoke over clouds over the southeast Atlantic Ocean from 2006 to 2009
(American Geophysical Union, 20141116)The aerosol direct radiative effect (DRE) of African smoke was analyzed in cloud scenes over the southeast Atlantic Ocean, using Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography (SCIAMACHY) satellite ... 
Agedependent patterns of bovine tuberculosis in cattle.
(BioMed Central, 20131016)Bovine tuberculosis (BTB) is an important livestock disease, seriously impacting cattle industries in both industrialised and preindustrialised countries. Like TB in other mammals, infection is life long and, if undiagnosed, ... 
Almost sure convergence of maxima for chaotic dynamical systems
(Cornell University Library, 20160321)Suppose (f,X,ν) is a measure preserving dynamical system and ϕ:X→R is an observable with some degree of regularity. We investigate the maximum process M n :=max{X 1 ,…,X n } , where X i =ϕ∘f i is a time series of observations ... 
Altered intrinsic excitability of hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons in aged PDAPP mice
(Frontiers, 20151014)Amyloidopathy involves the accumulation of insoluble amyloid b (Ab) species in the brain’s parenchyma and is a key histopathological hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Work on transgenic mice that overexpress Ab ... 
Altered intrinsic pyramidal neuron properties and pathwayspecific synaptic dysfunction underlie aberrant hippocampal network function in a mouse model of Tauopathy.
(Society for Neuroscience, 20160113)The formation and deposition of tau protein aggregates is proposed to contribute to cognitive impairments in dementia by disrupting neuronal function in brain regions, including the hippocampus. We used a battery of in ...
