    • Avalanche criticality during compression of porcine cortical bone of different ages 

      Baró, Jordi; Shyu, Peter; Jasiuk, Iwona M.; Vives, Eduard; Salje, Ekhard K. H.; Planes, Antoni (American Physical Society, 2016-05-02)
      Crack events developed during uniaxial compression of cortical bones cut from femurs of developing pigs of several ages (4, 12, and 20 weeks) generate avalanches. These avalanches have been investigated by acoustic emission ...
    • Avatars and Arrows in the Brain 

      Catmur, Caroline; Santiesteban, Idalmis; Conway, Jane R.; Heyes, Cecilia; Bird, Geoffrey (Elsevier, 2016)
      In this Commentary article we critically assess the claims made by Schurz, Kronbichler, Weissengrubler, Surtees, Samson and Perner (2015) relating to the neural processes underlying theory of mind and visual perspective ...
    • Avaz-e kalaki 

      Wright, Susan (World Oral Literature Project, 1976-07-03)
      Materials collected during field research for a D.Phil (Oxford University) in Iran in 1974 and 1975/6, and during short return visits in 1992, 1995, 1996. Audio recordings include: folk stories, music and songs, rituals, ...
    • Avian Models for Human Cognitive Neuroscience: A Proposal 

      Clayton, Nicola S.; Emery, Nathan J. (Elsevier, 2015-06-17)
      Research on avian cognitive neuroscience over the past two decades has revealed the avian brain to be a better model for understanding human cognition than previously thought, despite differences in the neuroarchitecture ...
    • An Avian Perspective on Simulating Other Minds 

      Emery, Nathan J.; Clayton, Nicola S. (Springer, 2016)
      An exciting new study on ravens by Bugnyar, Reber and Buckner (Nature Communications, 7, 10506, 2016) raises important questions about whether non-human animals are capable of simulating other minds, rather than theorising ...
    • Avoidance of an aposematically coloured butterfly by wild birds in a tropical forest 

      Dell’Aglio, Denise Dalbosco; Stevens, Martin; Jiggins, Chris (Wiley, 2016)
      1. Birds are considered to be the primary selective agents for warning coloration in butterflies, and select for aposematic mimicry by learning to avoid brightly coloured prey after unpleasant experiences. It has long been ...
    • Avoiding impacts on biodiversity through strengthening the first stage of the mitigation hierarchy 

      Phalan, B; Hayes, G; Brooks, S; Marsh, D; Howard, P; Costelloe, B; Vira, B et al. (Cambridge University Press, 2017-01-11)
      The mitigation hierarchy is a decision-making framework designed to address impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services through first seeking to avoid impacts wherever possible, then minimizing or restoring impacts, and ...
    • Awaiting the Royal arrival 

      Unknown (Royal Commonwealth Society Library. Cambridge University Library. University of Cambridge., 2004-11-05)
    • Awareness of Rhythm Patterns in Speech and Music in Children with Specific Language Impairments 

      Cumming, Ruth; Wilson, Angela; Leong, Victoria; Colling, Lincoln J.; Goswami, Usha (Frontiers, 2015-11-30)
      Children with specific language impairments (SLIs) show impaired perception and production of language, and also show impairments in perceiving auditory cues to rhythm (amplitude rise time [ART] and sound duration) and in ...
    • The axial behaviour of piled foundations in liquefiable soil 

      Stringer, Mark (2012-07-03)
      Understanding the mechanisms by which any engineering structure resists load is an essential requirement for its consistent and reliable design. The axial resistance which can be mobilised by piled foundations in liquefiable ...
    • Axial compressor stability enhancement 

      Houghton, Timothy Oliver. (2010-06-08)
      Aircraft jet engines must operate in a stable manner at all times. One source of instability is compressor stall. Stall problems can be reduced by machining cavities into the compressor casing adjacent to the rotor blades. ...
    • Axial compressor stall. 

      Day, Ivor John. (1976-10-26)
      This dissertation describes the experimental investigation of rotating stall in compressors of high hub-tip ratio. Measurements were obtained in builds of one to four stages, covering a wide range of design flow rates and ...
    • Axioms for Modelling Cubical Type Theory in a Topos 

      Orton, Ian; Pitts, Andrew M. (Schloss Dagstuhl, 2016-08-25)
      The homotopical approach to intensional type theory views proofs of equality as paths. We explore what is required of an interval-like object I in a topos to give a model of type theory in which elements of identity types ...
    • Axonal plasticity underpins the functional recovery following surgical decompression in a rat model of cervical spondylotic myelopathy 

      Dhillon, Rana S.; Parker, John; Syed, Yasir A.; Edgley, Steve; Young, Adam; Fawcett, James W.; Jeffery, Nick D. et al. (BioMed Central, 2016-08-23)
      Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the most common spinal cord disorder and a major cause of disability in adults. Improvements following surgical decompression are limited and patients often remain severely disabled. ...
    • Azasugar Inhibitors as Pharmacological Chaperones for Krabbe Disease 

      Hill, Chris H.; Viuff, Agnete H.; Spratley, Samantha J.; Salamone, Stéphane; Christensen, Stig H.; Read, Randy J.; Moriarty, Nigel W. et al. (RSC, 2015-03-23)
      Krabbe disease is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder characterized by rapid demyelination of nerve fibers. This disease is caused by defects in the lysosomal enzyme b-galactocerebrosidase (GALC), which hydrolyzes ...
