    • Narrative Development in Collaborative Pretend Object Play 

      Guzdial, Matthew J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-05-02)
      We have investigated the experience of individuals at play to better understand how narrative is constructed by collaboration in pretend object play. Our study was conducted with dyads that would play together in two ...
    • Native parasite combating an invasive species: an oomycete vs. Echinogammarus ischnus 

      van Rensburg, Karla (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-12-20)
      In the context of invasions in ecology, parasites can play an important role in mediating the outcomes of competition between the native and invasive species. For example, a native parasite in the upper St. Lawrence River ...
    • Natural Language Processing with Assemblies of Neurons 

      Jung, Seung Je Je
      The Assembly Calculus is a novel framework intended to bridge the gap between the level of neuron and synapses, and that of cognition. The Assembly Calculus is a computational system entailing a basic data item called an ...
    • Natural product synthesis via indium catalyzed Friedel-Crafts alkylation 

      Grzybowski, Paul Lawrence (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-05-07)
      Natural products are becoming an increasingly valuable resource in the design and development of new drug candidates. Since 2009 natural products have grossed over $16 billion (U.S. dollars) producing 10 out of the top 20 ...
    • The Navajo Concept of Wind 

      Hall, Della (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-09)
      Wind – in Navajo language – is most commonly referred to as nilch’i. In simple terms, nilch’i may be translated as “the wind,” or as “holy wind.” But that simple translation does not capture the word’s full meaning. For ...
    • Nematic Order in Spherical Geometries 

      Devaiah, Sharan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-05-11)
      Nematic Liquid crystals (NLC) are rod like molecules that in the absence of external influences arrange themselves parallel to each other and hence tend to point in a given direction. The average orientation of these ...
    • Neural Activation During Dual-task Processing with Simultaneous Stimulus Presentation 

      Alfonso, Juliana
      Despite extensive literature regarding response time cost in dual-task processing, the predominant procedures do not isolate task-processing from stimulus processing. The purpose of this study was to investigate the neural ...
    • Neural Activation Patterns Arising From Gesture Recognition 

      Basunia, Sumia
      The human brain is composed of a complex network of neurons that create a representation of the world through sensation and perception. This representation facilitates interacting with the environment and is thus vital ...
    • The Neural Correlates of Within Category Competition for Visual Representation 

      Chung, Andy (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-09)
      Electroencephalography (EEG) was used to study the mechanisms of categorical perception in neurologically-normal participants. Inferring from previous studies, the N1 component of the event related potential (ERP) was ...
    • Neural Network for Eye Contact Detection 

      Li, Heng
      Eye contact is fundamental to understanding many psychology and cognitive science questions. Human gaze plays an important role in social interaction as it conveys a lot of information in face-to-face communication. Thus, ...
    • Neurobehavioral Patterns during Action Observation and Execution of Complex Goal-Directed Movements 

      Atawala, Neel
      The production and mastery of complex action begins with action understanding, a process which arises from the observation of others. The mechanisms through which humans engage in action understanding are still debated, ...
    • The Neurochemical Mobile: Analysis of Dynamic Interactions between Six Neurotransmitters 

      Fieni, David (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-08)
      A mobile, typically seen in an infant’s crib, is an eloquent representation of the balance between multiple items. The neurochemical mobile is a tool used to visualize the balance between six major neurotransmitters in the ...
    • NeuroMapper: Using UMAP to visualize the training dynamic of neural network 

      Zhou, Zhiyan
      Deep neural networks are often considered as black box models. One of the reasons is that they have a large number of parameters. Understanding the model through these parameters is often a hard task. Recent advances in ...
    • Neuron-SpecificC Enolase as a Diagnostic Biomarker for TBI in Preclinical Trials: A systematic review 

      Sofia, Connor J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-05-16)
