    McCrone, J E; Tallon, J L; Cooper, J R; MacLaughlin, A C; Attfield, J. Paul; Bernhard, C (©2003 The American Physical Society, 2003)
    RuSr2GdCu2O8, in which magnetic order and superconductivity coexist with Tmag>Tc , is a complex material which poses new and important questions to our understanding of the interplay between magnetic and superconducting ...
  • Making Moral Space: A Reply To Churchland 

    Clark, Andy (University of Calgary Press, 2000)
    Like those famous nations divided by a single tongue, my paper (this volume) and Professor P.M. Churchland's deep and engaging reply offer different spins on a common heritage. The common heritage is, of course, a connectionist ...

  • Maps and Journeys: an Ethnomethodological Investigation 

    Brown, Barry; Laurier, Eric (University of Toronto Press, 2005)
    The notion of the ‘cognitive map’ has long been central to studies of maps, wayfinding and navigation. In this paper we provide an alternate approach to what are often mistakenly taken to be private mental processes which ...
  • The MATCH Corpus: A Corpus of Older and Younger Users' Interactions With Spoken Dialogue Systems. 

    Georgila, Kallirroi; Wolters, Maria K.; Moore, Johanna D.; Logie, Robert (Springer, 2010-03)
    We present the MATCH corpus, a unique data set of 447 dialogues in which 26 older and 24 younger adults interact with nine different spoken dialogue systems. The systems varied in the number of options presented and the ...
  • Material Properties that Control Ignition and Spread of a Fire in Micro-Gravity Environments 

    Torero, Jose L (The 34th National Heat Transfer Conference (USA), 2000-08)
    A study of the different mechanisms controlling the initial stages of a fire in a micro-gravity environment is presented. Three different processes are deemed important for evaluation of material flammability, piloted ...
  • Material Symbols 

    Clark, Andy (Taylor and Francis, 2006)
    What is the relation between the material, conventional symbol structures that we encounter in the spoken and written word, and human thought? A common assumption, that structures a wide variety of otherwise competing ...
  • Maximising children's interests after parental separation: the australian experience

    This briefing gives an overview of policy developments in Australia aimed at maximising the interests of children when their parents separate. It touches on issues common to a number of countries, in particular attempts ...
  • MBD2 is a transcriptional repressor belonging to the MeCP1 histone deacetylase complex 

    Ng, Huck-Hui; Zhang, Yi; Hendrich, Brian; Johnson, Colin A; Turner, Bryan M; Erdjument-Bromage, Hediye; Tempst, Paul; Reinberg, Danny; Bird, Adrian P (Nature Publishing Group, 1999-09)
    Mammalian DNA is methylated at many CpG dinucleotides. The biological consequences of methylation are mediated by a family of methyl-CpG binding proteins (1–4). The best characterized family member is MeCP2, a transcriptional ...
  • Me and my befriender: exploring adult/child befriending relationships

  • Meaning and Other Non-Biological Categories 

    Toribio, Josefa (1998)
    In this paper I display a general metaphysical assumption that characterizes basic naturalistic views and that is inherited, in a residual form, by their leading teleological rivals. The assumption is that intentional ...
  • Meaning, Dispositions, and Normativity

  • MeCP2 Repression Goes Nonglobal 

    Klose, Robert; Bird, Adrian P (AMER ASSOC ADVANCEMENT SCIENCE, WASHINGTON, 2003)
    Methylation of CpG islands in gene promoters results in silencing of those genes. Mutation of a methyl-CpG binding domain protein called MeCP2 that contributes to the maintenance of methylation-mediated gene silencing is ...
  • Medicine and public health in a multiethnic world 

    Bhopal, Raj (2009)
