New approach for identification pHFO networks to predict epilleptogenesis

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "New approach for identification pHFO networks to predict epilleptogenesis." About 40% of epilepsy patients fail to control seizures after treatment, and currently there is no treatment that can prevent epilepsy. The goal of this study is to perform multi-scale electrophysiological investigations combine with advanced computational algorithm development to understand the characteristics of the pathological brain networks during the latent period of epilepsy. The findings of this project will lead to a better understanding of the network mechanisms of epileptogenesis and suggest novel approaches to prevent the process of epileptogenesis.

Connecting Galaxies and Supermassive Black Holes: Meso-scale Simulations of Multiphase Accretion Flows

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "Connecting Galaxies and Supermassive Black Holes: Meso-scale Simulations of Multiphase Accretion Flows." It proposes to study how gas flows onto the supermassive black holes in massive galaxies and galaxy clusters. They will perform numerical simulations with a nested zoom-in technique, focusing on the mesoscale accretion flows from the Bondi radius to hundreds of Schwarzschild radii. They will predict the mass flux of different phases, as well as their angular momentum and magnetic flux.

Acoustic Metasurface-Aided Broadband Noise Reduction in Automobile Induced by Tire-Pavement Interaction

Description: Article demonstrating a technique utilizing acoustic metasurfaces (AMSes) with high reflective characteristics using relatively lightweight materials for noise reduction without any change in mechanical strength or weight of the tire. The proposed design can significantly reduce the noise arising from tire–pavement interaction over a broadband of acoustic frequencies under 1000 Hz and over a wide range of vehicle speeds using a negative effective dynamic mass density approach.

Making space for visual literacy in literacy teacher preparation: Preservice teachers coding to design digital books

Description: Article exploring preservice teachers’ coding in the design of a visually-enhanced digital book to reduce the lag between highly visual texts in elementary classrooms and a lack of emphasis on visual literacy in teacher preparation. Findings call for a shift to acknowledge and incorporate visual literacy theories and practices into teacher preparation programs to prepare preservice teachers for digitally literate classrooms.

Cataloging for Makerspaces

Description: Poster on cataloging items for makerspaces. Makerspace items may be difficult for library users to find if they are not fully cataloged. Cataloging not only facilitates discovery but also provides information needed to track usage, create programming, generate recommendations, and support collection development. Attend this poster presentation for an overview of descriptive and subject cataloging for makerspace items. It was presented at the Cross Timbers Library Collaborative (CTCL) 2021 conference held virtually on July 23, 2021.

Scaling of axial muscle architecture in juvenile Alligator mississippiensis reveals an enhanced performance capacity of accessory breathing mechanisms

Description: Article describing the anatomy of the trunk muscles, their properties that determine muscle performance (mass, length and physiological cross-sectional area [PCSA]) and investigating their scaling in juvenile Alligator mississippiensis spanning an order of magnitude in body mass (359 g–5.5 kg). Findings support existing anecdotal evidence that crocodilians shift their breathing mechanics as they increase in size.
