  • Multiplex lexical networks reveal patterns in early word acquisition in children 

    Stella, Massimo; Beckage, Nicole M.; Brede, Markus (Nature Research, 2017)

  • Multiplex model of mental lexicon reveals explosive learning in humans 

    Stella, Massimo; Beckage, Nicole M.; Brede, Markus; De Domenico, Manlio (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-02-02)
    Word similarities affect language acquisition and use in a multi-relational way barely accounted for in the literature. We propose a multiplex network representation of this mental lexicon of word similarities as a natural ...
  • Extended bioreactor conditioning of mononuclear cell–seeded heart valve scaffolds 

    VeDepo, Mitchell; Buse, Eric; Quinn, Rachael; Hopkins, Richard; Converse, Gabriel (SAGE Publications, 2018-01)
    The tissue-engineered heart valve may be the ideal valve replacement option but still must overcome challenges in leaflet recellularization. This study sought to investigate the potential for leaflet matrix restoration and ...
  • Mortar Constituent of Concrete in Compression 

    Maher, Ataullah; Darwin, David (American Concrete Institute, 1982-03-01)
    A study of the behavior of the mortar constituent of concrete under monotonic and cyclic uniaxial compression is summarized. Two mixes were used, with proportions corresponding to concretes with water-cement ratios of 0.5 ...
  • MicroRNA-210-mediated proliferation, survival, and angiogenesis promote cardiac repair post myocardial infarction in rodents 

    Arif, Mohammed; Pandey, Raghav; Alam, Perwez; Jiang, Shujia; Sadayappan, Sakthivel; Paul, Arghya; Ahmed, Rafeeq P. H. (Springer Verlag, 2017-12)
    An innovative approach for cardiac regeneration following injury is to induce endogenous cardiomyocyte (CM) cell cycle re-entry. In the present study, CMs from adult rat hearts were isolated and transfected with cel-miR-67 ...
  • Fabrication of hybrid crosslinked network with buffering capabilities and autonomous strengthening characteristics for dental adhesives 

    Song, Linyong; Ye, Qiang; Ge, Xueping; Misra, Anil; Tamerler, Candan; Spencer, Paulette (Elsevier, 2018-02)
    Ingress of bacteria and fluids at the interfacial gaps between the restorative composite biomaterial and the tooth structure contribute to recurrent decay and failure of the composite restoration. The inability of the ...
