The Entertainization of Childhood: An Etiology of Risks and Opportunities
ID: 249488
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Never before has media entertainment been so abundantly accessible to children. In this project, I propose an entirely new theoretical model to understand entertainment processing and effects. The model enables us to simultaneously investigate: (a) how and why certain types o...

Exploring Morphospaces in Adaptive Radiations to unravel Ecological Speciation
ID: 250325
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2016-06-30
150 years from the Origin and we have yet to unravel how ecological speciation works, and how it leads to spectacular adaptive radiations. The process has two components: adaptation to ecological niches and production of new species. My aim is to make breakthroughs in underst...

The balance of ubiquitin conjugation and deconjugation
ID: 249997
Start date: 2010-02-01, End date: 2015-01-31
Ubiquitin conjugation is one of the most important signaling systems in the eukaryotic cell. Different types of mono- and polyubiquitin chains determine the fate of target proteins by redirecting them for degradation, relocalization or interaction with new partners. The type ...

Epigenetic challenges in centromere inheritance during the cell cycle
ID: 249994
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Studies concerning the mechanism of DNA replication have advanced our understanding of genetic transmission through multiple cell cycles. Recent work has shed light on possible means to ensure the stable transmission of information beyond just DNA and the concept of epigeneti...

Determining the roles of the nuclear periphery in mammalian genome function
ID: 249956
Start date: 2010-03-01, End date: 2016-02-29
DNA sequence and epigenetic chromatin maps are important in understanding how genomes are regulated. However, these maps are linear and do not account for the three-dimensional context within which the genome functions in the cell. The spatial organisation of the genome in th...

Gene networks controlling embryonic polarity, regulation and twinning
ID: 249892
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2016-02-29
Much of what we know about how embryos determine their axes of symmetry comes from research in invertebrates (mainly Drosophila) and cold-blooded vertebrates (mainly Xenopus). In both cases, polarity is set up by the localisation of maternal determinants in the cytoplasm of t...

From Software Verification to Everyware Verification
ID: 246967
Start date: 2010-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
In the words of Adam Greenfield, the age of ubiquitous computing is here: a computing without computers, where information processing has diffused into everyday life, and virtually disappeared from view . Conventional hardware and software has evolved into everyware sensor-en...

Asset Bubbles and Economic Policy
ID: 249588
Start date: 2010-04-01, End date: 2015-03-31
Advanced capitalist economies experience large and persistent movements in asset prices that are difficult to justify with economic fundamentals. The internet bubble of the 1990s and the real state market bubble of the 2000s are two recent examples. The predominant view is th...

Microeconomic Analysis of Prices, Food and Nutrition
ID: 249529
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2016-02-29
Diet-related chronic diseases are a major public health concern. Addressing this concern is a key government policy objectives. Poor diet is one important cause, and a number of policies are aimed at improving diet. The impact of these policies on diet, and thus on health out...

Syllables and the Timing of Speech
ID: 249440
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2016-11-30
Project summary: The project develops an integrative symbolic-dynamical framework for gaining a fundamental understanding of the relation between qualitative spoken language form, also known as phonological form, and the continuous speech movements and acoustics in which this...
