Seismic Imaging of the Solar Interior using space-based data
ID: 210949
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-01-31
The broad science objective of this proposal is to search for the root causes of solar magnetic activity by establishing connections and physical relationships between internal solar properties and the various components of magnetic activity in the solar interior and atmosphe...

Nineteenth-Century Euclid: Geometry and the Literary Imagination from Wordsworth to Wells
ID: 210934
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2011-10-31
This radically interdisciplinary project aims to bring a substantially new field of research – literature and mathematics studies – to prominence as a tool for investigating the culture of nineteenth-century Britain. It will result in three kinds of outcome: a monograph, two ...

Generative Models of Human Cognition
ID: 210922
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
A fundamental issue in the study of human cognition is what computations are carried out by the brain to implement cognitive processes. The connectionist framework assumes that cognitive processes are implemented in terms of complex, nonlinear interactions among a large numbe...

Social Insurance and Welfare-to-Work Programs: Optimal Design and Structural Evaluation
ID: 210908
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2011-06-30
This project has three main goals. First, to improve the theoretical understanding of the design of optimal social insurance and Welfare-to-Work (WTW) programs. Second, to provide a new structural framework for the evaluation of existing policies. The framework is integrated ...

The role of RNA silencing in immunity and development in eukaryotes
ID: 210890
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2012-07-31
RNA silencing is a pan-eukaryotic gene regulation process that involves RNA molecules 19-30nt in length. These molecules are produced by RNAse-III proteins in the Dicer family and engage into sequence-specific regulation of complementary DNA or RNA upon their incorporation in...

Seeds of life - analysis of seed growth and development
ID: 210867
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Flowering plants have evolved as one predominant life form on earth. One common principle of flowering plants and probably one of the main reasons for this evolutionary success is the rapid development of an embryo along with a nourishing tissue, called the endosperm. Embryo ...

Quantum optics in nanostructures
[PROJECT] OPTNANO - Quantum optics in nanostructures
ID: 210642
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
Nanomaterials are intriguing structures for quantum optics. Their color depends on their size and shape; they are very selective in the wavelengths they absorb and emit. Although nanostructures have been used to color windows and surfaces since the Middle Ages, we lack the un...

Compartmentalization and dynamics of Nuclear functions
ID: 210508
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-05-31
The eukaryotic genome is packaged into large-scale chromatin structures that occupy distinct domains in the nucleus and this organization is now seen as a key contributor to genome functions. Two key functions of the genome can take advantage of nuclear organization: regulate...

Towards a Gaussian Network-on-Chip
ID: 210389
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2012-07-31
As chip multi-processor architectures are replacing single-processor architectures and reshaping the semiconductor industry, chip designers can hardly use their old models and benchmarks anymore. While designers were used to deterministic and reliable performance in the chips...

On the other hand: the linguistic impact of having two symmetrical articulators in sign language
ID: 210373
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
Deaf people communicate with two hands. Hearing people communicate with only one mouth. What are the implications of this difference for our view of human language? The proposed research aims to approach this central issue by addressing a number of new and concrete questions,...
