  • Mirror Writing in Children 

    Anderson, Eilidh (The University of Edinburgh, 2012-06-27)
    A recent study by Fischer (2011) found that children independently choose the direction that letters and digits face during literacy development when lacking explicit knowledge of directionality. In explanation of this ...
  • Mirror-writing in children and the right-writing rule: critically testing the implicit writing rule using novel stimuli. 

    Henderson, Rowena (The University of Edinburgh, 2012-06-27)
    Mirror-writing is the phenomenon in which letters, words or digits are written in reverse direction and can be read normally when held to a mirror. Unintentional mirror-writing is frequently observed in young children ...
  • Misfeasance in Public Office: An Emerging Medical Law Tort? 

    Laurie, Graeme; Mason, J K (Oxford University Press, 2003)
    The authors draw on two notable cases, Akenzua v. Secretary of State for the Home Department, and Palmer v Tees Health Authority, to which the outcome has prompted the article discussing misfeasance as an emerging medical ...
  • The missing Scottish dimension in social care policy: a commentary on the Griffiths Report on community care and the Wagner Report on residential care 

    Titterton, Mike (Unit for the Study of Government in Scotland, University of Edinburgh, 1989)
  • MITF in melanoma progression, pathology and survival in vivo 

    Capper, Amy (The University of Edinburgh, 2014-11-28)
    MITF is the master melanocyte transcription factor and has a complex role in melanoma. Both gain- and loss-of function mutations in MITF have been identified in melanoma, although its’ role in melanoma development and ...
  • Mixed micelles system: equilibrium and kinetics 

    Salonen, Anniina M (The University of Edinburgh: College of Science and Engineering: School of Physics, 2005-11)
    Lipid-detergent systems are interesting to study, as the two amphiphiles have very different spontaneous curvature, however readily form mixed micelles in solution. These micelles can be shorter cylindrical micelles ...
  • Mixed Speculative Multithreaded Execution Models 

    Xekalakis, Polychronis (The University of Edinburgh, 2010)
    The current trend toward chip multiprocessor architectures has placed great pressure on programmers and compilers to generate thread-parallel programs. Improved execution performance can no longer be obtained via traditional ...
  • Mixed-ability grouping policy in Taiwan: influences on policy and practice 

    Lu, Ling-Ying (The University of Edinburgh, 2010-11-25)
    This research aims to explore the attempted implementation of mixed ability grouping in junior high schools in Taiwan and the challenges generated by individuals and groups to this policy. The mixed-ability grouping ...
  • Mixed-Initiative Natural Language Dialogue with Variable Communicative Modes 

    Ishizaki, Masato (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 1997-07)
    As speech and natural language processing technology advance, it now reaches a stage where the dialogue control or initiative can be studied to realise usable and friendly human computer interface programs such as computer ...
  • Mixing the Elements 

    Scaltsas, Dory (2007)
    All bodies in the sublunary word are composed of mixtures of all the primary elements – fire, air, earth, and water. Aristotle argues for the primacy of these four elements in the constitution of objects in our word. He ...
  • Mixture density networks, human articulatory data and acoustic-to-articulatory inversion of continuous speech. 

    Richmond, Korin (Institute of Acoustics, 2001)
    Researchers have been investigating methods for retrieving the articulation underlying an acoustic speech signal for more than three decades. A successful method would find many applications, for example: low bit-rate ...
  • Mixture of beamformers for speech separation and extraction 

    Dmour, Mohammad A. (The University of Edinburgh, 2010)
    In many audio applications, the signal of interest is corrupted by acoustic background noise, interference, and reverberation. The presence of these contaminations can significantly degrade the quality and intelligibility ...
  • Mobile Computation with Functions 

    Kırlı, Zeliha D (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2002-07)
    The practice of computing has reached a stage where computers are seen as parts of a global computing platform. The possibility of exploiting resources on a global scale has given rise to a new paradigm -- the mobile ...
  • Mobilising knowledge in public health : analysis of the functioning of the Scottish Public Health Network 

    Pankaj, Vibha (The University of Edinburgh, 2014-07-04)
    The extent to which the knowledge mobilisation potential of public health networks is actually achieved in their functioning has not been previously studied. There are prescriptions from policy documents and from research ...
  • Mobilome and antibiotic resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii 

    Opazo, Andres Felipe (The University of Edinburgh, 2014-11-28)
    Acinetobacter baumannii is an important microorganism involved in hospital-acquired infections with a remarkable ability to develop resistance to multiple antibiotics (multidrug-resistance, MDR) which makes it a highly ...
  • Modality Effects on Perceiving and Acting on Time 

    McDougall, Catriona (The University of Edinburgh, 2010-06-30)
    The modality effect of visual and auditory stimuli has been widely studied in the perception of time. Auditory intervals are consistently perceived more accurately and an auditory interval will more often be judged longer ...
  • Model building in neural networks with hidden Markov models 

    Wynne-Jones, Michael (University of Edinburgh. College Science and Engineering. Scool of Informatics, 1994-07)
    This thesis concerns the automatic generation of architectures for neural networks and other pattern recognition models comprising many elements of the same type. The requirement for such models, with automatically ...
  • Model checking infinite-state systems: generic and specific approaches 

    To, Anthony Widjaja (The University of Edinburgh, 2010)
    Model checking is a fully-automatic formal verification method that has been extremely successful in validating and verifying safety-critical systems in the past three decades. In the past fifteen years, there has been ...
