Can portable air quality monitors protect children from air pollution on the school run? An Exploratory Study (2020)
Journal Article
Heydon, J., & Chakraborty, R. (in press). Can portable air quality monitors protect children from air pollution on the school run? An Exploratory Study. Environmental Monitoring and Assessment,

With air quality issues in urban areas garnering increasing media attention, concerned citizens are beginning to engage with the technology as a means of identifying and responding to the environmental risks posed. However, while much has been writte... Read More about Can portable air quality monitors protect children from air pollution on the school run? An Exploratory Study.

Risk assessment for hospital admission in patients with COPD; a multi-centre UK prospective observational study (2020)
Journal Article
Polkey, M. I., Wood, A. M., Wilkinson, I. B., Fermont, J. M., Fermont, J. M., Bolton, C. E., …Müllerova, H. (2020). Risk assessment for hospital admission in patients with COPD; a multi-centre UK prospective observational study. PLoS ONE, 15(2), e0228940. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228940

In chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), acute exacerbation of COPD requiring hospital admission is associated with mortality and healthcare costs. The ERICA study assessed multiple clinical measures in people with COPD, including the short...

The activation of contextually predictable words in syntactically illegal positions (2020)
Journal Article
Cutter, M. G., Martin, A. E., & Sturt, P. (in press). The activation of contextually predictable words in syntactically illegal positions. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology,

We present an eye-tracking study testing a hypothesis emerging from several theories of prediction during language processing, whereby predictable words should be skipped more than unpredictable words even in syntactically illegal positions. Particip... Read More about The activation of contextually predictable words in syntactically illegal positions.

Impact of dietetic intervention on skin autofluorescence and nutritional status in persons receiving dialysis: a proof of principle study (2020)
Journal Article
Hörner, D. V., Willingham, F. C., Selby, N. M., & Taal, M. W. (2020). Impact of dietetic intervention on skin autofluorescence and nutritional status in persons receiving dialysis: a proof of principle study. Journal of Renal Nutrition, https://doi.org/10.1053/j.jrn.2019.12.006

Objective: Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are uremic toxins that result from oxidative stress and food consumption. We have previously reported that markers of malnutrition are more important determinants of increased skin autofluorescence (S...

Ecosystem services for intensification of agriculture with emphasis on increased nitrogen ecological use efficiency (2020)
Journal Article
Sena, V. G., de Moura, E. G., Macedo, V. R., Aguiar, A. C., Price, A. H., Mooney, S. J., & Calonego, J. C. (2020). Ecosystem services for intensification of agriculture with emphasis on increased nitrogen ecological use efficiency. Ecosphere, 11(2), https://doi.org/10.1002/ecs2.3028

In weathered tropical soil, low nutrient use efficiency can lead to agricultural systems becoming unsustainable. Therefore, tropical agriculture is highly dependent on ecosystem services, such as nutrient recycling and carbon sequestration, to enhanc...
