Post-hatch heat warms adult beaks: irreversible physiological plasticity in Japanese quail
(Royal Society Publishing, 2013-08)
Across taxa, the early rearing environment contributes to adult morphological and physiological variation. For example, in birds, environmental temperature plays a key role in shaping bill size and clinal trends across ...
Asymmetries of Influence: Differential Effects of Body Postures on Perceptions of Emotional Facial Expressions
The accuracy and speed with which emotional facial expressions are identified is influenced by body postures. Two influential models predict that these congruency effects will be largest when the emotion displayed in the ...
Evaporative respiratory cooling augments pit organ thermal detection in rattlesnakes
Rattlesnakes use their facial pit organs to sense external thermal fluctuations. A temperature decrease in the heat-sensing membrane of the pit organ has the potential to enhance heat flux between their endothermic prey ...

Group-invariant solutions of semilinear Schrodinger equations in multi-dimensions
(AIP Publishing, 2013-12)
Symmetry group methods are applied to obtain all explicit group-invariant radial solutions to a class of semilinear Schr¨odinger equations in dimensions n = 1. Both focusing and defocusing cases of a power nonlinearity ...
Interpreting Quantifier Scope Ambiguity: Evidence of Heuristic First, Algorithmic Second Processing
The present work suggests that sentence processing requires both heuristic and algorithmic processing streams, where the heuristic processing strategy precedes the algorithmic phase. This conclusion is based on three ...
