      Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the second most common form of degenerative dementia. Siblings of affected individuals are at greater risk of developing DLB, but little is known about the underlying genetic basis of the ...
    • Exotic origins: the emblematic biogeographies of early modern scaly mammals 

      Lawrence, Natalie (Cambridge University Press, 2015)
      Exotic natural objects brought to Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were mutable and malleable things. They were constructed and assimilated into European world-views in a reciprocal process of change as ...
    • Expanding DP4: application to drug compounds and automation 

      Ermanis, Kristaps; Parkes, Kevin E. B.; Agback, Tatiana; Goodman, Jonathan M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-03-23)
      The DP4 parameter, which provides a confidence level for NMR assignment, has been widely used to help assign the structures of many stereochemically-rich molecules. We present an improved version of the procedure, which ...
    • The Expanding Scope of the Data Protection Directive: The Exception for a “Purely Personal or Household Activity 

      Butler, Oliver (University of Winchester, 2016)
      This case note comments on the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in C-212/13 Ryneš v Úrad pro ochranu osobních údaju. It argues that the CJEU has imposed a spatial logic on the interpretation ...
    • The expanding territories of condensin II

    • Expanding the definition of addiction: DSM-5 vs. ICD-11 

      Grant, Jon E.; Chamberlain, Samuel R. (Cambridge University Press, 2016-05-06)
      While considerable efforts have been made to understand the neurobiological basis of substance addiction, the potentially “addictive” qualities of repetitive behaviors, and whether such behaviors constitute “behavioral ...
    • Expanding the Solvent Chemical Space for Self-Assembly of Dipeptide Nanostructures 

      Mason, Thomas O.; Chirgadze, Dimitri Y.; Levin, Aviad; Adler-Abramovich, Lihi; Gazit, Ehud; Knowles, Tuomas P. J.; Buell, Alexander K. (ACS, 2014-01-14)
      Nanostructures composed of short, noncyclic peptides represent a growing field of research in nanotechnology due to their ease of production, often remarkable material properties, and biocompatibility. Such structures have ...
