      Neurons in the inhibitory network of the striatum display cell assembly firing patterns which recent results suggest may consist of spatially compact neural clusters. Previous computational modeling of striatal neural ...
    • Spatially-Implicit Modelling Of Disease-Behaviour Interactions In The Context Of Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions 

      Ringa, Notice; Bauch, Chris T. (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2018-04-01)
      Pair approximation models have been used to study the spread of infectious diseases in spatially distributed host populations, and to explore disease control strategies such as vaccination and case isolation. Here we ...
    • Speciation dynamics of oxyanion contaminants (As, Sb, Cr) in argillaceous suspensions during oxic-anoxic cycles

      Argillaceous geological formations are considered promising repositories for waste containing inorganic contaminants. However, the sequestration capacity of an argillaceous natural barrier may change as a result of dynamic ...
    • Species sensitivity of early face and eye processing 

      Itier, Roxane J.; Van Roon, Patricia; Alain, Claude (Elsevier, 2011-02-25)
      Humans are better at recognizing human faces than faces of other species. However, it is unclear whether this species sensitivity can be seen at early perceptual stages of face processing and whether it involves species ...
    • Spectral energy balance in dry convective boundary layers 

      Sandham, James; Waite, Michael L (Taylor and Francis, 2015-04)
      Three-dimensional large-eddy simulations (LES) of the convective boundary layer over a domain of approximately 6 km are performed with the UCLA LES model. Simulations are forced with a constant surface heat flux and ...
    • Spectral properties of tensor products of channels 

      Jaques, Samuel; Rahaman, Mizanur (Elsevier, 2018-09-15)
      We investigate spectral properties of the tensor products of two completely positive and trace preserving linear maps (also known as quantum channels) acting on matrix algebras. This leads to an important question of when ...
    • Spectrophotometric method for simultaneous measurement of zinc and copper in metalloproteins using 4-(2-pyridylazo)resorcinol
