In this essay I revisit some anti-causalist arguments relating to reason-giving explanations of action put forth by numerous philosophers writing in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s in what Donald Davidson dismissively described ...
Disc-shaped polyoxyethylene glycol glycerides gel nanoparticles as novel protein delivery vehicles
Disc-shaped nanoparticles with high aspect ratios have been reported to show preferential cellular uptake in vitro by mammalian cells. However, engineering and producing such disc-shaped nanoparticles are often complex. ...
The role of natriuretic peptides in volume assessment and mortality prediction in Haemodialysis patients
BACKGROUND: Maintaining optimal fluid balance is essential in haemodialysis (HD) patients but clinical evaluation remains problematic. Other technologies such as bioimpedance are emerging as valuable adjuncts. This study ...
S-process production in rotating massive stars at solar and low metallicities
Rotation was shown to have a strong impact on the structure and light element nucleosynthesis in massive stars. In particular, models including rotation can reproduce the primary nitrogen observed in halo extremely metal ...
Fitting equations to data with the perfect correlation relationship
(University of Hertfordshire, 2015-12-23)
We present a simple method for estimating a single relationship between multiple variables, which are all treated symmetrically i.e. there is no distinction between dependent and independent variables. This is of interest ...
Cross-sector surveys assessing perceptions of key stakeholders towards barriers, concerns and facilitators to the appropriate use of adaptive designs in confirmatory trials
Background Appropriately conducted adaptive designs (ADs) offer many potential advantages over conventional trials. They make better use of accruing data, potentially saving time, trial participants, and limited resources ...
Development of the mini-BCIBS: A brief bi-directional measure of posttraumatic growth
We describe the development of a brief version of the Bi-Directional Changes in Being Scale (BCIBS; Hiskey, Troop, & Joseph, 2006), a measure of phenomenological change following stressful and traumatic life events. The ...
What has happened today? Memory visualisation of a robot companion to assist user’s memory
Purpose – Memory deterioration is one of the most common cognitive issues associated with ageing. Not being able to remember daily routines (e.g. taking medicine) poses a serious threat to personal independence. Smart homes ...
