    Alavian, Kambiz N.; Li, Hongmei; Collis, Leon P.; Bonanni, Laura; Zeng, Lu; Sacchetti, Silvio; Lazrove, Emma; Nabili, Panah; Flaherty, Benjamin; Graham, Morven; Chen, Yingbei; Messerli, Shanta M.; Mariggio, Maria A.; Rahner, Christoph; McNay, Ewan; Shore, Gordon; Smith, Peter J. S.; Hardwick, J. Marie; Jonas, Elizabeth A. (2011-06)
    Anti-apoptotic BCL-2 family proteins such as Bcl-xL protect cells from death by sequestering apoptotic molecules, but also contribute to normal neuronal function. We find in hippocampal neurons that Bcl-xL enhances the ...

  • Beaked whales echolocate on prey 

    Johnson, Mark P.; Madsen, Peter T.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2004-12-07)
    Beaked whales (Cetacea: Ziphiidea) of the genera Ziphius and Mesoplodon are so difficult to study that they are mostly known from strandings. How these elusive toothed whales use and react to sound is of concern because ...
  • Beaked whales respond to simulated and actual navy sonar 

    Tyack, Peter L.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Moretti, David J.; Southall, Brandon L.; Claridge, Diane E.; Durban, John W.; Clark, Christopher W.; D'Amico, Angela; DiMarzio, Nancy A.; Jarvis, Susan; McCarthy, Elena; Morrissey, Ronald; Ward, Jessica; Boyd, Ian L. (Public Library of Science, 2011-03-14)
    Beaked whales have mass stranded during some naval sonar exercises, but the cause is unknown. They are difficult to sight but can reliably be detected by listening for echolocation clicks produced during deep foraging ...
  • A beam pattern design procedure for multidimensional sonar arrays empolying minimum variance beamforming 

    Richards, Randall G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    This paper develops a beam pattern design procedure for general multidimensional irregular sonar arrays that incorporates the not well understood effects of array geometry into the design process. The procedure is ...
  • A beamforming video recorder for integrated observations of dolphin behavior and vocalizations 

    Ball, Keenan R.; Buck, John R. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-03)
    In this Letter we describe a beamforming video recorder consisting of a video camera at the center of a 16 hydrophone array. A broadband frequency-domain beamforming algorithm is used to estimate the azimuth and elevation ...
