• #### Comparison of ventricular drain location and infusion test in hydrocephalus ﻿

(Wiley-Blackwell, 2016)
OBJECTIVES: Suspected cerebrospinal fluid shunt (CSF) dysfunction in hydrocephalic patients poses a diagnostic uncertainty. The clinical picture can be non-specific and CT imaging alone is not always pathognomonic. Infusion ...
• #### Comparison of ventricular drain location and infusion test in hydrocephalus ﻿

(Wiley, 2017-03)
Objectives: Suspected cerebrospinal fluid shunt (CSF) dysfunction in hydrocephalic patients poses a diagnostic uncertainty. The clinical picture can be nonspecific and CT imaging alone is not always pathognomic. Infusion ...
• #### Comparisons of intra-tablet coating variability using DEM simulations, asymptotic limit models, and experiments ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-03-26)
Discrete element method (DEM) computer simulations are used to investigate intra-tablet coating thickness variability. Two new post-processing algorithms are presented. The first algorithm uses an image-based method to ...
• #### Compartmental residence time estimation in batch granulators using a colourimetric image analysis algorithm and Discrete Element Modelling ﻿

(2017-09-01)
In this paper we present an experimental technique and a novel colourimetric image analysis algorithm to economically evaluate particle residence times within regions of batch granulators for use in compartmental population ...
• #### The Compelling Case for Indentation as a Functional Exploratory and Characterization Tool ﻿

(Wiley, 2015-07-30)
The utility of indentation testing for characterizing a wide range of mechanical properties of brittle materials is highlighted in light of recent articles questioning its validity, specifically in relation to the measurement ...
• #### Competing charge transfer pathways at the photosystem II-electrode interface. ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-12)
The integration of the water-oxidation enzyme, photosystem II (PSII), into electrodes allows the electrons extracted from water-oxidation to be harnessed for enzyme characterization and driving novel endergonic reactions. ...
• #### Competing risk models of stillbirth inform populations but not individuals ﻿

(Wiley, 2016-02-29)
• #### Competing three-dimensional mechanisms in compressor flows ﻿

(ASME, 2016-10-04)
Three-dimensional design is central to all modern compressor design systems, but many of these methods still rely on a two-dimensional and sectional view of aerodynamics at their core. This paper argues that this view ...
• #### Competition between Burkholderia pseudomallei and B. thailandensis ﻿

(2015-03-03)
Abstract Background Burkholderia pseudomallei is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes melioidosis, an often fatal disease in tropical countries. Burkholderia ...
• #### Competition between movement plans increases motor variability: evidence of a shared resource for movement planning ﻿

(American Physiological Society, 2016-06-29)
Do movement plans, like representations in working memory, share a limited pool of resources? If so, the precision with which each individual movement plan is specified should decrease as the total number of movement plans ...
• #### Competition can lead to unexpected patterns in tropical ant communities ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016)
Ecological communities are structured by competitive, predatory, mutualistic and parasitic interactions combined with chance events. Separating deterministic from stochastic processes is possible, but finding statistical ...
• #### Competition for light and water play contrasting roles in driving diversity-productivity relationships in Iberian forests ﻿

(Wiley, 2014-06-16)
Mixed-species forests generally sequester and store more carbon in above-ground woody biomass compared to species-poor systems. However, the mechanisms driving the positive relationship between diversity and above-ground ...
• #### Competitive Contagion in Networks ﻿

(Elsevier, 2014-10-05)
We develop a game-theoretic framework for the study of competition between firms who have budgets to “seed" the initial adoption of their products by consumers located in a social network. We identify a general property ...
• #### Competitive Disinhibition Mediates Behavioral Choice and Sequences in $\textit{Drosophila}$ ﻿

(Elsevier (Cell Press), 2016-10-06)
Even a simple sensory stimulus can elicit distinct innate behaviors and sequences. During sensorimotor decisions, competitive interactions among neurons that promote distinct behaviors must ensure the selection and maintenance ...
• #### Competitive growth in a cooperative mammal ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
• #### Complement C1q is hydroxylated by collagen prolyl 4 hydroxylase and is sensitive to off-target inhibition by prolyl hydroxylase domain inhibitors that stabilize hypoxia-inducible factor ﻿

Complement C1q is part of the C1 macromolecular complex that mediates the classical complement activation pathway: a major arm of innate immune defense. C1q is composed of A, B, and C chains that require post-translational ...
• #### Complementary spin-Hall and inverse spin-galvanic effect torques in a ferromagnet/semiconductor bilayer ﻿

(NPG, 2015-03-31)
Recently discovered relativistic spin torques induced by a lateral current at a ferromagnet/paramagnet interface are a candidate spintronic technology for a new generation of electrically controlled magnetic memory devices. ...
• #### A Complete ALMA Map of the Fomalhaut Debris Disk ﻿

(2017-06-10)
© 2017. The American Astronomical Society. All rights reserved. We present ALMA mosaic observations at 1.3 mm (223 GHz) of the Fomalhaut system with a sensitivity of 14 μJy/beam. These observations provide the first ...
• #### Complete Bilayer Adsorption Of C16TAB On The Surface Of Mica Using Neutron Reflection ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2015-05-05)
In this work we present neutron reflection data from an alkylammonium surfactant (C16TAB) at the mica/water interface. The system is studied in situ in a non-invasive manner and indicates the formation of a complete adsorbed ...
• #### The complete connectome of a learning and memory center in an insect brain ﻿

Associating stimuli with positive or negative reinforcement is essential for survival, but a complete wiring diagram of a higher-order circuit supporting associative memory has not been previously available. Here we ...
