  • Embodiment and the Philosophy of Mind 

    Clark, Andy (Cambridge University Press, 1998)
    Cognitive Science is in some sense the science of the mind. But an increasingly influential theme, in recent years, has been the role of the physical body, and of the local environment, in promoting adaptive success. No ...
  • Emergent Synchronous Bursting of Oxytocin Neuronal Network 

    Rossoni, E.; Feng, J. F.; Tirozzi, B.; Brown, D.; Leng, G.; Moos, F. (Public Library of Science, 2008)
    When young suckle, they are rewarded intermittently with a let-down of milk that results from reflex secretion of the hormone oxytocin; without oxytocin, newly born young will die unless they are fostered. Oxytocin is made ...
  • The emotional economy of housing 

    Christie, H.; Smith, S.J.; Munro, M. (2008-10-01)
    This paper offers an interpretation of the role of emotions in animating housing markets which complements more traditional economic and behavioural studies of locally based house-price inflation. Looking to debates within ...
  • Enantioselective Copper-Catalyzed Reductive Coupling of Alkenylazaarenes with Ketones 

    Saxena, Aakarsh; Choi, Bonnie; Hon, Lam Wai (Journal of American Chemical Society, 2012-05-23)
    Catalytic enantioselective methods for the preparation of chiral azaarene-containing compounds are of high value. By combining the utility of copper hydride catalysis with the ability of C═N-containing azaarenes to activate ...
  • Enantioselective Rhodium-Catalyzed Addition of Potassium Alkenyltrifluoroborates to Cyclic Imines 

    Luo, Yunfei; Carnell, Andrew J.; Lam, Hon Wai (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 2012-07-02)
    Cyclic imines, in which the C[DOUBLE BOND]N bond is constrained in the Z geometry, have been identified as highly effective substrates for enantioselective rhodium-catalyzed additions of potassium alkenyltrifluoroborates. ...
  • Enantioselective Rhodium-Catalyzed Allylation of Cyclic Imines with Potassium Allyltrifluoroborates 

    Hepburn, Hamish B.; Chotsaeng, Nawasit; Luo, Yunfei; Lam, Hon Wai (SYNTHESIS, 2013)
    This Article presents further examples of the enantioselective rhodium-catalyzed addition of potassium allyltrifluoroborates to cyclic imines. A wide range of substituted allyltrifluoroborates are compatible with this ...
  • Enantioselective Rhodium-Catalyzed Nucleophilic Allylation of Cyclic Imines with Allylboron Reagents 

    Luo, Yunfei; Hepburn, Hamish B.; Chotsaeng, Nawasit; Lam, Hon Wai (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 2012-08)
    The highly diastereo- and enantioselective title reaction of a range of cyclic imines with various potassium allyltrifluoroborates most likely proceeds via allylrhodium(I) intermediates, and represents the first rhodium-catalyzed ...
  • Endogenous opioids and attenuated hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis responses to immune challenge in pregnant rats 

    Russell, J. A.; Ochedalski, T; Meddle, S. L.; Ma, S.; Brunton, P. J.; Douglas, A. J. (2005)
    In late pregnant rats, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is hyporesponsive to psychogenic stressors. Here, we investigated attenuated HPA responses to an immune challenge and a role for endogenous opioids. ACTH ...
  • Enhanced CpG Mutability and Tumorigenesis in MBD4-Deficient Mice 

    Millar, Catherine B; Guy, Jacky; Sansom, Owen J; Selfridge, Jim; MacDougall, Eilidh; Hendrich, Brian; Keightley, Peter D; Bishop, Stefan M; Clarke, Alan R; Bird, Adrian P (AMER ASSOC ADVANCEMENT SCIENCE, WASHINGTON, 2002)
    The mammalian protein MBD4 contains a methyl-CpG binding domain and can enzymatically remove thymine (T) or uracil (U) from a mismatched CpG site in vitro. These properties suggest that MBD4 might function in vivo to ...
  • Enhancing SMM properties via axial distortion of Mn-3(III) clusters 

    Parsons S.; Brechin, E.K.; Collins A.; Karotsis G.; Jones L.F.; Inglis R.; Wernsdorfer W.; Perlepes S.P. (2008-01-01)
    Replacement of carboxylate and solvent with facially capping tripodal ligands enhances the single-molecule magnet (SMM) properties of [Mn-3(III)] triangles.
  • An enquiry into the use of numeric data in learning and teaching in UKHE 

    Rice, Robin; Fairgrieve, Joan (Radical Statistics, 2003)
    Only one-quarter of survey respondents who said they used data in the classroom had considered using the nationally funded academic data services provided by the Data Archive (at Essex), MIMAS (at Manchester), or EDINA ...
  • Epidemic of cardiovascular disease in South Asians 

    Bhopal, Raj; Usher, J (2002)
  • Eratosthenes Seamount: an oceanographic yardstick recording the Late Mesozoic-Tertiary geological history of the Eastern Mediterranean. 

    Robertson, Alastair H F; Mart, Yossi (Ocean Drilling Program, 1998)
    Three boreholes were drilled on the northern slope of the Eratosthenes Seamount during Leg 160. Lithological data were obtained back to the Early Cretaceous. Lithological correlation of shallow-marine sedimentary rocks ...
  • ERP Systems and the University as an 'Unique' Organisation 

    Pollock, N.; Cornford, J. (external) (Emerald Group Publishing Ltd, 2004-01-01)
    Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are widely used by large corporations around the world. Recently universities have turned to ERP as a means of replacing existing management and administration computer systems. ...
  • Estrogenic hormone removal from wastewater using NF/RO membranes 

    Nghiem, L.D.; Manis, A.; Soldenhoff, K.; Schäfer, Andrea (Elsevier, 2004)
    This paper investigates the separation process of two estrogenic hormones, estrone and estradiol, using eight commercial NF and low pressure RO membranes. The results indicate that the separation mechanism of estrone and ...
  • Ethnicity has overtaken race in medical science: MEDLINE-based comparison of trends in the USA and the rest of the world 

    Afshari, Reza; Bhopal, Raj (Oxford University Press, 2010)
