  • Decision-making under risk of loss in children 

    Steelandt, Sophie; Broihanne, Marie-Helene; Romain, Amelie; Thierry, Bernard; Dufour, Valerie (2013-01-09) - Journal article
    In human adults, judgment errors are known to often lead to irrational decision-making in risky contexts. While these errors can affect the accuracy of profit evaluation, they may have once enhanced survival in dangerous ...
  • Decomposition of mutational context signatures using quadratic programming methods 

    Lynch, Andy G. (2016-06-07) - Journal article
    Methods for inferring signatures of mutational contexts from large cancer sequencing data sets are invaluable for biological research, but impractical for clinical application where we require tools that decompose the ...

    McKenna, C.; Berx, B.; Austin, William (2016-01) - Journal article
    The Faroe-Shetland Channel (FSC) is an important conduit for the poleward flow of Atlantic water towards the Nordic Seas and, as such, it plays an integral part in the Atlantic's thermohaline circulation. Mixing processes ...
  • Decomposition tables for experiments : I. A chain of randomizations 

    Brien, C. J.; Bailey, Rosemary Anne (2009-12) - Journal article
    One aspect of evaluating the design for an experiment is the discovery of the relationships between subspaces of the data space. Initially we establish the notation and methods for evaluating an experiment with a single ...

    Gut, N.K.; Winn, P. (2015-03-25) - Journal article
    The pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus (PPTg) has been proposed as a target for deep brain stimulation (DBS) in parkinsonian patients, particularly for symptoms such as gait and postural difficulties refractory to dopaminergic ...

    Agulli, I.; Aguerri, J. A. L.; Sanchez-Janssen, R.; Barrena, R.; Diaferio, A.; Serra, A. L.; Mendez Abreu, Jairo (2014-10-11) - Journal article
    We present a new deep determination of the spectroscopic luminosity function (LF) within the virial radius of the nearby and massive Abell 85 (A85) cluster down to the dwarf regime (M* + 6) using Very Large Telescope/Visible ...
  • A deep staring campaign in the Sigma Orionis cluster. Variability in substellar members 

    Elliott, P.; Scholz, A.; Jayawardhana, R.; Eisloffel, J.; Hebrard, E. M. (2017-08-23) - Journal article
    Context. The young star cluster near σ Orionis is one of the primary environments to study the properties of young brown dwarfs down to masses comparable to those of giant planets. Aims. Deep optical imaging is used to ...
  • Deep water formation in the North Pacific and deglacial CO2 rise 

    Rae, James William Buchanan; Sarnthein, Michael; Foster, Gavin; Ridgwell, Andy; Grootes, Pieter; Elliott, Tim (2014-06) - Journal article
    Deepwater formation in the North Atlantic and Southern Ocean is widely thought to influence deglacial CO2 rise and climate change; here we suggest that deep water formation in the North Pacific may also play an important ...
  • Deep-brain photoreception links luminance detection to motor output in Xenopus frog tadpoles 

    Currie, Stephen Paul; Doherty, Gayle Helane; Sillar, Keith Thomas (2016-05-10) - Journal article
    Non-visual photoreceptors are widely distributed in the retina and brain but their roles in animal behaviour remain poorly understood. Here we document a novel form of deep-brain photoreception in Xenopus laevis frog ...
  • The DeepMIP contribution to PMIP4 : experimental design for model simulations of the EECO, PETM, and pre-PETM (version 1.0)
