Computational criteria for establishing reflex from plasticity to hardwiring

Computational criteria for establishing reflex from plasticity to hardwiring

Date: July 20, 2010
Creator: Tam, Nicoladie D.
Description: This article accompanies a poster presentation on computational criteria for establishing reflex from plasticity to hardwiring. The role of synaptic plasticity in associative learning has been explored extensively computationally. Yet, the computational mechanism for hardwiring of the neural circuit has only been addressed recently using a systems approach of whole-animal behavior based on an evolutionary process for survival. In this paper, the authors will explore the computational criteria needed to establish the hardwiring of reflex.

Peer Review and the Ex Ante Assessment of Societal Impacts

Peer Review and the Ex Ante Assessment of Societal Impacts

Date: 2011
Creator: Holbrook, J. Britt & Frodeman, Robert
Description: This article discusses peer review. Funding agencies and research councils around the world rely on peer review to assess the potential impacts of proposed research. This article compares the procedures of two major public science agencies - the US National Science Foundation and the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme - for evaluating ex ante the potential societal impact of research proposals. In this paper the authors survey the state of the art and discuss some of the conceptual questions that arise in using ex ante peer review to assess the societal impact of scientific research.

[Review] Tempting Fate: The Ethics of Dual-Use Research

[Review] Tempting Fate: The Ethics of Dual-Use Research

Date: March 20, 2009
Creator: Briggle, Adam
Description: This review is of the book Tempting Fate: The Ethics of Dual-Use Research by Seumas Miller and Michael J. Selgelid. The dual-use dilemma, which Miller and Selgelid argue arises from the fact that "one and the same piece of scientific research sometimes has the potential to be used for harm as well as for good".

High-Valent Transition-Metal Alkylidene Complexes: Effect of Ligand and Substituent Modification

High-Valent Transition-Metal Alkylidene Complexes: Effect of Ligand and Substituent Modification

Date: 1992
Creator: Cundari, Thomas R., 1964- & Gordon, Mark S.
Description: This article discusses the effects of ligand and substituent modification on the metal-carbon double bond. The main conclusion drawn from this work is that the intrinsic nature of the metal-carbon double bond can typically be changed only within certain limits by modification of the electronegativity of the ligands (L) and substituents (Z).
