Influence of containing walls on the distribution of voidage in packed beds of uniform spheres (1988)
Journal Article
Kubie, J. (1988). Influence of containing walls on the distribution of voidage in packed beds of uniform spheres. Chemical Engineering Science, 43(6), 1403-1405. https://doi.org/10.1016/0009-2509%2888%2985113-3

The distribution of voidage in the wall regions of randomly packed beds of uniform spheres is investigated. A general equation relating the local voidage to the distribution of the spheres is derived and is combined with some simple observations abou...

Distinct GABAA receptor α subunit mRNAs show differential patterns of expression in bovine brain (1988)
Journal Article
Wisden, W., Morris, B. J., Darlison, M. G., Hunt, S. P., & Barnard, E. A. (1988). Distinct GABAA receptor α subunit mRNAs show differential patterns of expression in bovine brain. Neuron, 1(10), 937-947. https://doi.org/10.1016/0896-6273%2888%2990151-1

Specific oligonucleotide probes have been used to visualize the regional and cellular distribution of the mRNAs encoding three structurally distinct GABA A receptor α subunits in bovine brain. In situ hybridization analysis showed that these transcri... Read More about Distinct GABAA receptor α subunit mRNAs show differential patterns of expression in bovine brain.

The Use of Sigmoids in Modelling and Forecasting Human Populations (1988)
Journal Article
Raeside, R. (1988). The Use of Sigmoids in Modelling and Forecasting Human Populations. Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series A, 151(3), 499. https://doi.org/10.2307/2982997

The use of sigmoid trend models, particularly the logistic model, was once popular among demographers. However, by 1940 the approach had fallen out of favour, being criticized for giving poor results and having no theoretical validity, and it was con...

Pharmacology, Cloning and Expression of Insect Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors (1988)
Book Chapter
Marshall, J., David, J. A., Darlison, M. G., Barnard, E. A., & Sattelle, D. B. (1988). Pharmacology, Cloning and Expression of Insect Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors. In Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors in the Nervous System, 257-281. Springer Verlag.

There is considerable evidence that acetylcholine is an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the insect central nervous system (Sattelle 1986). Despite the acute technical difficulties of proving that a putative transmitter exerts a functi... Read More about Pharmacology, Cloning and Expression of Insect Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors.

Brain α-Neurotoxin-Binding Proteins and Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors (1988)
Book Chapter

Clinical trial of incontinence garments: recognition of the possible influence of the Hawthorne effect (1988)
Journal Article
Hanley, J., Beveridge, M., Aitken, C., Hunter, J., Dick, T., & Prescott, R. (1988). Clinical trial of incontinence garments: recognition of the possible influence of the Hawthorne effect. Clinical Rehabilitation, 2(4), 285-290. https://doi.org/10.1177/026

The results of clinical trials must be interpreted with care, recognizing that they may be affected by factors other than the items being tested. Different garments were routinely supplied from two distribution centres in Edinburgh, Urocare to the ma...

Structural and functional basis for GABAA receptor heterogeneity (1988)
Journal Article
Levitan, E. S., Schofield, P. R., Burt, D. R., Rhee, L. M., Wisden, W., Köhler, M., …Seeburg, P. H. (1988). Structural and functional basis for GABAA receptor heterogeneity. Nature, 335(6185), 76-79. https://doi.org/10.1038/335076a0

When γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in vertebrate brain, binds to its receptor it activates a chloride channel. Neurotransmitter action at the GABAA receptor is potentiated by both benzodiazepines and barbiturates w... Read More about Structural and functional basis for GABAA receptor heterogeneity.

Experience with Adaptive Interfaces (1988)
Journal Article
