  • Leptin reverses long-term potentiation at hippocampal CA1 synapses 

    Moult, Peter R.; Milojkovic, Bogdan; Harvey, Jenni (Wiley, 2009-02)
    The hormone leptin crosses the blood brain barrier and regulates numerous neuronal functions, including hippocampal synaptic plasticity. Here we show that application of leptin resulted in the reversal of long-term ...
  • Letting go: the client's experience of relational depth 

    McMillan, Maria; McLeod, John (PCCS Books Ltd, 2006)
    The concept of relational depth represents a significant development within counseling and psychotherapy theory and practice. However, until now, comparatively little attention has been given to the distinctive perspective ...
  • Lexical and phonological effects on syntactic processing: evidence from syntactic priming 

    Santesteban, Mikel; Pickering, Martin J.; McLean, Janet F. (Elsevier, 2010-10)
    We investigated whether phonological relationships at the lexical level affect syntactic encoding during sentence production. Cleland and Pickering (2003) showed that syntactic priming effects are enhanced by semantic, but ...
  • Lexical preference and global structure contributions to syntactic choice in sentence production 

    Huxley, Clare J.; McLean, Janet F.; Branigan, Holly P.; Pickering, Martin J. (Springer Netherlands, 2012)
    When people decide how to express a message, they have to choose among different sentence structures. These choices are affected by lexical factors (such as whether a verb is more commonly associated with one structure ...
  • Lexical repetition and syntactic priming in dialogue 

    McLean, Janet F.; Pickering, Martin J.; Branigan, Holly P. (MIT Press, 2004)
  • Life cycle analysis and sewer solids 

    Gouda, H.; Ashley, R. M.; Gilmour, Daniel J.; Smith, H. (IWA Publishing, 2003)
    The search for sustainable ways of living has necessitated a new look at the way in which water services are provided. The new paradigm includes whole-system perspectives for each of the primary criteria groups: social, ...
  • Lifelong endurance training attenuates age-related genotoxic stress in human skeletal muscle 

    Cobley, James N.; Sakellariou, George K.; Murray, Scott; Waldron, Sarah; Gregson, Warren; Burniston, Jatin G.; Morton, James P.; Iwanejko, Lesley A.; Close, Graeme L. (BioMed Central, 2013-07-12)
    The aim of the present study was to determine the influence of age and habitual activity level, at rest and following a single bout of high-intensity exercise, on the levels of three proteins poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 ...
  • Lifelong training preserves some redox-regulated adaptive responses after an acute exercise stimulus in aged human skeletal muscle 

    Cobley, James N.; Sakellariou, G.K.; Owens, D.J.; Murray, S.; Waldron, S.; Gregson, W.; Fraser, W.D.; Burniston, J.G.; Iwanejko, L.A.; McArdle, A.; Morton, J.P.; Jackson, M.J.; Close, G.L. (Elsevier, 2014-05)
    Several redox-regulated responses to an acute exercise bout fail in aged animal skeletal muscle, including the ability to upregulate the expression of antioxidant defense enzymes and heat shock proteins (HSPs). These ...
  • Light Sheet Tomography (LST) for in situ imaging of plant roots 

    Yang, Zhengyi; Downie, Helen; Rozbicki, Emil; Dupuy, Lionel X.; MacDonald, Michael P. (Optical Society of America, 2013-07-15)
    The production of crops capable of efficient nutrient use is essential for addressing the problem of global food security. The ability of a plant's root system to interact with the soil micro-environment determines how ...
  • Lignocellulose to fuel alcohol: current trends 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Society for General Microbiology, 2013-11)
  • Like father, like self: emotional closeness to father predicts women's preferences for self-resemblance in opposite-sex faces 

    Watkins, Christopher D.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Smith, Finlay G.; Jones, Benedict C.; Vukovic, Jovana; Fraccaro, Paul (Elsevier, 2011-01)
    Kin recognition is an essential component of kin-directed adaptive behavior. Consequently, potential mechanisms of kin recognition, such as learning a kin phenotype from family members (familial imprinting) or self ...
  • Linear system reduction by continued-fraction expansion about s = 0 and s = a alternately 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1983-03)
    A method of reduction is given which uses the concept of expanding the system transfer function about the origin and about a general point. This results in good overall responses, and families of reduced models of the same ...
  • Linear system reduction by continued-fraction expansion about three points 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1984-01)
    The method of model reduction by continued-fraction expansion about s = 0 and s = a is extended to include the point s = à ¿ also. This achieves more accurate transient approximations and thus highlights further the ...
  • Linear system reduction by impulse energy approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1985-08)
    A method is given for linear system reduction which is a more general form of the Routh method. The reduced models retain stability, and a fuller contribution is made to the impulse response energy of the reduced system ...
  • Linear system reduction by the modified factor division method 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1986-11)
    A novel method of linear system simplification is presented based on a modified factor division approach. It is seen to be more flexible than most model reduction methods in that families of reduced models may be easily ...
  • Linear system reduction using Schwarz canonical form 

    Davidson, A. M.; Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1976-06)
    A system reduction method based on Schwarz canonical form has recently been observed to have certain moment-matching properties. By reformulating the method, these properties are proved and extended and the stability of ...
  • Linear-system reduction by continued-fraction expansion about a general point 

    Davidson, A. M.; Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1974-07)
    Capacity requirements for multiple-access demand-assigned communication systems are broken down into information, demand and assignment signalling. A simultaneous-transmission scheme for demand signalling greatly reduces ...
  • Linguistic alignment between humans and computers 

    Branigan, Holly P.; Pickering, Martin J.; Pearson, Jamie; McLean, Janet F. (Elsevier, 2010-02-06)
    There is strong evidence that when two people talk to each other, they tend to converge, or align, on common ways of speaking (e.g., Pickering and Garrod, 2004). In this paper, we discuss possible mechanisms that might ...
  • Linking individual behaviour to community scale patterns in fungi 

    Falconer, Ruth E.; Bown, James L.; White, Nia A.; Crawford, John W. (Elsevier, 2011-02)
    The fungi comprise a separate kingdom of life and epitomise the indeterminate growth form. Very little is known about the factors that influence the nature of fungal diversity and the link between individual behaviour and ...
  • Linking recorded data with emotive and adaptive computing in an eHealth environment 

    Ball, Leslie D.; Bradley, David A.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Brownsell, Simon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-29)
    Telecare, and particularly lifestyle monitoring, currently relies on the ability to detect and respond to changes in individual behaviour using data derived from sensors around the home. This means that a significant aspect ...
