wide range of spatial frequencies. Poor contrast sensitivity has been associated with postural instability, slower walking velocity, increased step width and decreased stride length (Wood et al., 2009, 2011).
One visual component that has had little attention in the study of balance and falls is fixation stability. Although fixation is frequently targeted and trained in vision rehabilitation for central vision loss, it has yet to be investigated as a contributing factor in fall avoidance. When

The new simple technique of hot fixation and a method for processing a mass quantity of nematodes to prepare nematode collection slides for taxonomic and ecological purposes, combined with an abrupt reduction of the set of procedures caused by the ‘‘cocktail’’ principle (a stratification of layers with a gradient of glycerol concentrations), are described.

such that the distance between the VP and the device did not exceed 65 cm. Areas of interest (AOI) were identified separately for the base and each of the modified smile images. The DMLT area of interest on teeth and DMLP area of interest on the philtrum were determined on the base image. “Total Fixation Duration” (TFD), “First Fixation Duration” (FFD), and “Visit Count” (VC) measurements were selected from the metrics dataset and defined as:

In transfusion medicine, activation of the complement system results in a cascade of interactions that have two consequences: (1) certain antigen–antibody complexes cause an increase in complement binding to RBCs, resulting in hemolysis; and (2) fixation of complement can lead to opsonization and

Truffles (Tuber spp.) are ascomycete hypogeous fungi, which form ectomycorrhizae with roots of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. Their fruiting bodies are valued for their distinctive aroma. The aroma might be partially due to complex bacterial community which colonizes their fruiting bodies. Some bacterial species are also believed to promote the truffle’ fruitification due to the fixation of nitrogen inside the developing truffles. Although truffles, especially of the species Tuber

Many microorganisms associated with plants are active in the rhizosphere; those that promote plant growth, control diseases, and increase crop yield are collectively referred to as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). Sinorhizobium meliloti is an important PGPR that carries out biological nitrogen fixation through symbiosis with its hosts. This symbiosis has several benefits in agriculture, such as reducing the need for adding nitrogen fertilizers to the soil and improving

Abstract: Anguillonema amolensis n. sp. is described and illustrated based on its morphological, morphometric, and molecular characters. The new species is characterized by its 575 to 820 mm long and wide body (body width at vulva = 30 to 59 mm), irregularly ventrally curved after fixation, five to six lines in lateral fields, 6.0 to 7.5 mm long stylet with small rounded knobs, pharynx lacking median bulb, pharyngo-intestinal junction anterior to nerve ring and excretory pore, females with

(LAT). There were four discrepant results in the 1,495 donor plasmas tested by the two methods. Two of the three samples that were positive by the LAT and negative by the OHA test were also negative with the IMx enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and complement fixation test (CFT). The OHA failed to detect antibodies to CMV in a sample that was positive by the IMx ELISA, CFT, and LAT. The IMx ELISA, which was regarded as the arbiter of true positivity, yielded a sensitivity and specificity

Eye-tracking and fMRI results of PK were compared to results of control subjects. Patient PK showed atypical gaze-fixation strategy during face perception and typical patterns of brain activations in the FG and OFA. However, a significant difference between PK and control subjects was found in the left anterior superior temporal sulcus/middle

However, despite these detailed studies, microbiota’s occurrence and interaction(s) with C. cibarius are still poorly understood. Basic information related to microbial communities and their functions in distinct ecological niches needs to be supplemented. The rapid development of bioinformatics and molecular ecology has expediated core microbiome research. The core microbiome, which
