  • Medium-term performance and maintenance of SUDS: a case-study of Hopwood Park Motorway Service Area, UK 

    Heal, K. V.; Bray, R.; Willingale, S. A. J.; Briers, M.; Napier, F.; Jefferies, Christopher; Fogg, P. (IAHR/IWA, 2008-08)
    One of the main barriers to implementing SUDS is concern about performance and maintenance costs since there are few well-documented case-studies. This paper summarizes studies conducted between 2000 and 2008 of the ...

    Background The melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) is a highly polymorphic G protein-coupled receptor. Inheritance of various MC1R alleles has been associated with a red hair/fair skin phenotype, increased incidence of skin ...
  • Meme transmission in artificial proto-cultures 

    Guest, Andrew K. (Abertay UniversityScience Engineering and Technoloy, 2014-10)
    "I daresay you haven’t had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." Lewis Carroll, ...
  • A memory aid with remote communication using distributed technology 

    Szymkowiak, Andrea; Morrison, Kenny; Gregor, Peter; Shah, Prveen; Evans, Jonathan J.; Wilson, Barbara A. (Springer Verlag, 2005-01)
    Electronic memory aids have been used successfully to give reminders to individuals with memory problems. These aids usually present short action reminders that are acknowledged by the user. The recent enhancement of ...
  • A memory aid with remote communication: preliminary findings 

    Szymkowiak, Andrea; Morrison, Kenny; Gregor, Peter; Inglis, Elizabeth A.; Shah, Praveen; Evans, Jonathan J.; Wilson, Barbara A. (Elsevier, 2005)
    Memory problems are often associated with ageing and are among the most common effects of brain injury. Such problems can severely disrupt daily life and put huge strain on family members and carers. Electronic devices ...
  • Memory conformity and the perceived accuracy of self versus other 

    Allan, Kevin; Midjord, J. Palli; Martin, Doug; Gabbert, Fiona (Psychonomic Society/Springer Verlag, 2012-02)
    Here, we demonstrate that the decision to conform to another person’s memory involves a strategic trade-off that balances the accuracy of one’s own memory against that of another person. We showed participants three household ...
  • Memory conformity: can eyewitnesses influence each other's memories for an event? 

    Gabbert, Fiona; Memon, Amina; Allan, Kevin (John Wiley & Sons, 2003-07)
    The current study investigated memory conformity effects between individuals who witness and then discuss a criminal event, employing a novel procedure whereby each member of a dyad watches a different video of the same ...
  • Memory conformity: disentangling the steps toward influence during a discussion 

    Gabbert, Fiona; Memon, Amina; Wright, Daniel B. (Psychonomic Society, 2006-06)
    When two people see the same event and discuss it, one person's memory report can influence what the other person subsequently claims to remember. We refer to this as memory conformity. In the present article, two factors ...
  • Menstrual cycle, pregnancy and oral contraceptive use alter attraction to apparent health in faces 

    Jones, B. C.; Perrett, D. I.; Little, A. C.; Boothroyd, L.; Cornwell, R. E.; Feinberg, D. R.; Tiddeman, B. P.; Whiten, S.; Pitman, R. M.; Hillier, S. G.; Burt, D. M.; Stirrat, M. R.; Law Smith, M. J.; Moore, Fhionna R. (The Royal Society, 2005-02)
    Previous studies demonstrating changes in women's face preferences have emphasized increased attraction to cues to possible indirect benefits (e.g. heritable immunity to infection) that coincides with periods of high ...
  • Menstrual cycle, trait estrogen level, and masculinity preferences in the human voice 

    Feinberg, D. R.; Jones, B. C.; Law Smith, M. J.; Moore, Fhionna R.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Cornwell, R. E.; Hillier, S. G.; Perrett, D. I. (Elsevier, 2006-02)
    Men with low testosterone (feminine men) invest in relationships and offspring more than men with high testosterone (masculine men). Women’s attraction to testosterone dependent traits (e.g. masculine face shape) is ...
  • A mental health worker's experiences of a patient’s suicide - John 

    Haith, Mark P. (Chellehead Works, 2010)
  • Mental object rotation and egocentric body transformation: two dissociable processes? 

    Jola, Corinne; Mast, F. (Taylor & Francis, 2005)
    An important question in studies on mental rotation is whether the mental object rotation and the egocentric body transformation rely on dissociable mechanisms. We tested non-dancers and professional dancers as experts in ...
  • Meta-heuristic combining prior online and offline information for the quadratic assignment problem 

    Sun, Jianyong; Zhang, Qingfu; Yao, Xin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-03)
    The construction of promising solutions for NP-hard combinatorial optimization problems (COPs) in meta-heuristics is usually based on three types of information, namely a priori information, a posteriori information learned ...
  • A method for resolving security vulnerabilities through the use of design patterns 

    Walker, Nick; Coull, Natalie J.; Ferguson, R. Ian; Milne, Allan C. (Springer, 2014-05-14)
    Most software development companies conduct in-house testing of their code prior to releasing their product, yet software vulnerabilities are still found every single day in the most prevalent of applications. Memory ...
  • Method to quantify short-term dynamics in carbon dioxide emission following controlled soil deformation 

    Otten, Wilfred; Watts, Chris W.; Longstaff, Dave (American Society of Agronomy, 2000)
    Tillage of soils often decreases soil organic matter content and increases CO2 emission. Enhanced CO2 emission induced by tillage may provide an early indication of the likely consequences of soil management on soil organic ...
