Pasteuria penetrans is an endospore-forming bacterium, which is a hyperparasite of root-knot nematodes Meloidogyne spp. that are economically important pests of a wide range of crops. The life cycle of the bacterium and ...
Imagining the impossible : motor representations in anosognosia for hemiplegia
Anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP) is characterised by poor insight or underestimation of hemiplegia after brain injury. Recent explanations of AHP have used an established ‘forward model’, which proposes that normal motor ...
Consistency of flashbulb memories of September 11 over long delays : implications for consolidation and wrong time slice hypotheses
The consistency of flashbulb memories over long delays provides a test of theories of memory for highly emotional events. This study used September 11, 2001 as the target event, with test–retest delays of 2 and 3 years. ...
Determining frequencies of avirulent alleles in airborne inoculum of Leptosphaeria maculans using molecular assays
Control of blackleg (phoma stem canker) disease relies on crop management, fungicides and breeding for disease resistance. Proteins encoded by these resistance genes recognize avirulence (Avr) gene products in the fungus ...
A novel concept in enteric coating : a double-coating system providing rapid drug release in the proximal small intestine
A novel double-coating enteric system was developed to accelerate drug release in conditions resembling the upper small intestine. The system comprises an inner coat (partially neutralised EUDRAGIT® L 30 D-55 and organic ...
Controlling crop disease contributes to both food security and climate change mitigation
Global food security is threatened by crop diseases that account for average yield losses of 16 per cent, with the greatest losses experienced by subsistence farmers in the developing world. Climate change is exacerbating ...
Assessing the quality of decision support technologies using the International Patient Decision Aid Standards instrument (IPDASi)
To describe the development, validation and inter-rater reliability of an instrument to measure the quality of patient decision support technologies (decision aids).
Differential effects of age on prospective and retrospective memory tasks in young, young-old, and old-old adults
