Sub-100 nm resolution microscopy based on proximity projection grating scheme (2015)
Journal Article
Hu, F., Somekh, M. G., Albutt, D. J., Webb, K., Moradi, E., & See, C. W. (2015). Sub-100 nm resolution microscopy based on proximity projection grating scheme. Scientific Reports, 5, https://doi.org/10.1038/srep08589

Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) has been widely used in life science imaging applications. The maximum resolution improvement of SIM, compared to conventional bright field system is a factor of 2. Here we present an approach to structured il...

Optimal similarity judgments in intertemporal choice (and beyond) (2020)
Journal Article
Adriani, F., & Sonderegger, S. (2020). Optimal similarity judgments in intertemporal choice (and beyond). Journal of Economic Theory, 190, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jet.2020.105097

We use a simple cost-benefit analysis to derive optimal similarity judgments – addressing the question: when should we expect a decision maker to distinguish between different time periods or different prizes? Our key premise is that cognitive resour... Read More about Optimal similarity judgments in intertemporal choice (and beyond).

Confound modelling in UK Biobank brain imaging (2020)
Journal Article
Alfaro-Almagro, F., McCarthy, P., Afyouni, S., Andersson, J. L., Bastiani, M., Miller, K. L., …Smith, S. M. (2021). Confound modelling in UK Biobank brain imaging. NeuroImage, 224, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroimage.2020.117002

Dealing with confounds is an essential step in large cohort studies to address problems such as unexplained variance and spurious correlations. UK Biobank is a powerful resource for studying associations between imaging and non-imaging measures such... Read More about Confound modelling in UK Biobank brain imaging.

What do scientists mean when they talk about research animals "volunteering"? (2020)
Journal Article
Palmer, A., Greenhough, B., Hobson-West, P., Davies, G., & Message, R. (in press). What do scientists mean when they talk about research animals "volunteering"?. Society and Animals,

This paper examines discourses around "volunteering" in animal research. Through a qualitative textual analysis of the scientific literature using animals in behavioral and psychological research, we demonstrate that "voluntary" and related terms are...

An ex vivocystic fibrosis model recapitulates key clinical aspects of chronic Staphylococcus aureus infection (2019)
Other
Sweeney, E., Hassan, M. M., Harrington, N. E., Smyth, A. R., Hurley, M. N., Tormo-Mas, M. Á., & Harrison, F. (2019). An ex vivocystic fibrosis model recapitulates key clinical aspects of chronic Staphylococcus aureus infection

Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most prevalent organisms isolated from the airways of people with cystic fibrosis (CF), predominantly early in life. Yet its role in the pathology of lung disease is poorly understood. Clinical studies are limited...
