The effects of musical training on movement pre-programming and re-programming abilities : an event-related potential investigation
(2015-03) - Journal article,
Two response precuing experiments were conducted to investigate effects of musical skill level on the ability to pre- and re-programme simple movements. Participants successfully used advance information to prepare forthcoming ...
Fluorinated cyclohexanes : synthesis of amine building blocks of the all-cis 2,3,5,6-tetrafluorocyclohexylamine motif
(2017-04-19) - Journal article,
This paper reports the synthesis of three amine stereoisomers 5a–c of the tetrafluorocyclohexyl ring system, as building blocks for discovery chemistry programmes. The synthesis starts from a Birch reduction of benzonitrile, ...
Changes in cardiac Na+/K+-ATPase expression and activity in female rats fed a high fat diet
(2017-12) - Journal article,
The aim of this study was to investigate whether the presence of endogenous estradiol alters the effects of a high-fat (HF) diet on activity/expression of the cardiac Na+/K+-ATPase, via PI3K/IRS and RhoA/ROCK signalling ...
The rhizoferrin biosynthetic gene in the fungal pathogen Rhizopus delemar is a novel member of the NIS gene family
(2017-08) - Journal article,
Iron is essential for growth and in low iron environments such as serum many bacteria and fungi secrete ferric iron-chelating molecules called siderophores. All fungi produce hydroxamate siderophores with the exception of ...

The Figueira Branca Suite is a layered mafic-ultramafic complex in the Jauru Terrane, southwest Amazon Craton. New lithological, geochemical, gamma-ray and potential field data, integrated with geological, isotope and ...
Variations in judgments of intentional action and moral evaluation across eight cultures
(2017-07) - Journal article,
Individuals tend to judge bad side effects as more intentional than good side effects (the Knobe or side-effect effect). Here, we assessed how widespread these findings are by testing eleven adult cohorts of eight highly ...
