Developing a New Search for Randomly Accessible Data

There are only two widely-used searches for randomly accessible data: linear search and binary search. I developed and created a new search and tested it against binary search, linear search, and variations of them.

Digital Health: Tracking Physiomes and Activity Using Wearable Biosensors Reveals Useful Health-Related Information

Physiological parameters such as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and body temperature can provide critical information about the physical health status of a person. Elevation of any of these parameters can be of concern; elevated HR and blood pressure are associated with cardiovascular disease, and elevated body temperature occurs during pathogen infection and inflammation [1–4]. Peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2) is a measure of oxygen saturation of hemoglobin in the blood, and patients with chronic pulmonary disease often have lower resting SpO2 and are required to use supplementary oxygen to attain a more optimal SpO2

Ultrasound for Autonomous Heart Attacks

Every year, half of the 610,000 heart attack deaths in the United States are due to a lack of prompt medical attention. Currently, most technologies fail to fix the problem, as they simply take too long to be able to detect a heart attack in time.

Translational Genomics of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) does not respond to receptor targeted treatments because they do not possess the ligands to bind to these receptors. Thus, more research needs to be explored in terms of the translational modifications that genes undergo during this disease.

Development of rat female genital cortex and control of female puberty by sexual touch

Early analysis of the development of visual cortex by Hubel and Wiesel focused on binocular interactions and showed that both anatomy and physiology of ocular dominance is plastic and shaped in a visually-driven, activity-dependent process [1]. In a similar vein, the development of circuits in the somatosensory cortex (S1) was studied. It was recognized early on that precise topographic (barrel) representation of the whisker pattern in cortical input layer 4 [2] is imposed by peripheral inputs and has an early and brief critical period, after which it can no longer be changed [3].

Decline of Killer Whales

Killer whales are divided into two classes: the residents and the transients. The central differences between these two types involves their general behavior and diet. Transient groups feed mainly on marine mammals, while resident pods eat mainly fish. Unlike resident killer whales, which travel in large, extended family groups, the transients keep their group sizes small.

Improving Status Quo Rationale to Improve Middle Income Households

This study demonstrates correlation between economic trends and changes in markets. They also show that CAPE downside management is effective in combination with a delay and dynamic asset allocation.

Phytoplankton Plastid Proteomics & Biochemistry

The global epidemic of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has brought many researchers together in an attempt to find a solution. One such idea for sequestering CO2 out of the atmosphere is to employ phytoplankton, a dominant oceanic primary producer.

Critical Status of the Brown Bear

Tourists visit Alaska with visions of postcard-perfect wildlife and scenery dancing through their heads. They expect to see brown bears plucking salmon out of the beautiful and majestic Kenai River. The problem with this vision is the possible decline of brown bears on the Kenai Peninsula in the not-to-distant future.

New Renewable Energy Source is… Gravity?

Keyboard buttons. Coffee grounds. Cow farts. What do these things have in common? Over the years, they’ve all been put forward as possible sources of renewable energy. While they may seem crazy, scientists’ creativity is understandable — the search for clean, renewable energy is arguably the most pressing issue in modern science.
