Research interviews require a fact-based, neutral inquiry style that contrasts markedly from the empathic style of clinical interviews in psychiatric practice. In fact, the research interview generally seeks to gather information and specifically avoid any therapeutic benefit. This article describes the purpose of these opposing interview styles and provides some guidelines for beginning clinicians conducting research.

In the mammalian testis, coexisting tight junctions (TJs), basal ectoplasmic specializations, and gap junctions (GJs), together with desmosomes near the basement membrane, constitute the blood-testis barrier (BTB). The most notable feature of the BTB, however, is the extensive network of actin filament bundles, which makes it one of the tightest blood-tissue barriers. The BTB undergoes restructuring to facilitate the transit of preleptotene spermatocytes at stage VIII-IX of the epithelial cycle. Thus, the F-actin network at the BTB undergoes cyclic reorganization via a yet-to-be explored mechanism. Rictor, the key component of mTORC2 that is known to regulate actin cytoskeleton, was shown to express stage-specifically at the BTB in the seminiferous epithelium. Its expression was down-regulated at the BTB in stage VIII-IX tubules, coinciding with BTB restructuring at these stages. Using an in vivo model, a down-regulation of rictor at the BTB was also detected during adjudin-induced BTB disruption, illustrating rictor expression is positively correlated with the status of the BTB integrity. Indeed, the knockdown of rictor by RNAi was found to perturb the Sertoli cell TJ-barrier function in vitro and the BTB integrity in vivo. This loss of barrier function was accompanied by changes in F-actin organization at the Sertoli cell BTB in vitro and in vivo...

At a seminar in the Bell Communications Research Colloquia Series, Dr. Richard W. Hamming, a Professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, and a retired Bell Labs scientist, gave a very interesting and stimulating talk, "You and your research" to an overflow audience of some 200 Bellcore staff members and visitors at the Morris Research and Engineering Center on March 7, 1986. This talk centered on Hamming's observations and research on the question "why do so few scientists make significant contributions and so many are forgotten in the long run?" From his more than forty years of experience, thirty of which were at Bell Laboratories, he has made a number of direct observations, asked very pointed questions of scientists about what, how, and why they did things, studied the lives of great scientists and great contributions, and has done introspection and studied theories of creativity. The talk is about what he has learned in terms of the properties of the individual scientists, their abilities, traits, working habits, attitudes and philosophy.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The US Department of Defense is currently pursuing the most comprehensive transformation of its forces since the early years of WWII. This transformation is a holistic approach to update both the equipment that the forces will fight its conflicts with and the way in which they will fight. This transformation relies heavily on fully networked air, ground and space based platforms. While many experts agree that in the course of the next 10 years communications equipment will emerge to support the networking of these systems, there remains much uncertainty on how operations will be effected if the technology does not mature enough to meet expectations. This research shows that even a 25 percent degradation in communications range could pose significant challenges for this Future Force. Additionally, even small delays (latencies greater than one minute) and constraints on network throughput can increase the Future Force casualties and the duration of battle. While the end result in all analysis shows that the Future Force is a superior element with the same battle end state-victory, the cost of that victory depends significantly on effective communications.; Captain, United States Army

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; The U.S. Army is transforming into a network-centric modular force. Developed by the Army Research Laboratory's Survivability/Lethality Analysis Directorate, in conjunction with New Mexico State University's Physical Science Laboratory, the System of Systems Survivability Simulation (S4) is a detailed, agent-based, Monte Carlo simulation designed to conduct survivability, lethality, and vulnerability assessments of military platforms connected via communications networks to other platforms on the battlefield. This thesis explores key parameters that make up S4's communications environment, using design of experiments and data farming tools to determine if any or all are having unintended interactions. This thesis concludes that the explored parameters generally perform as intended, decreasing or increasing communication performance as the environment becomes respectively more or less restrictive. However, the level of influence of the parameters varies greatly, questioning either the level of realism to how the parameters are modeled or their necessity to the simulation. In addition, the variation across input settings and replications demonstrates the value of being able to efficiently explore multiple factors and take many replications. As a pilot study...

An increasing number of population studies are assessing epigenetic variation in relation to early-life outcomes in tissues accessible to epidemiologic researchers. Epigenetic mechanisms are highly tissue specific, however, and it is unclear whether the variation observed in one of the tissue types is representative of other sources or whether the variation in DNA methylation is distinct, reflecting potential functional differences across tissues. To assess relations between DNA methylation in various samples from newborns and children in early infancy, we measured promoter or gene-body DNA methylation in matched term placenta, cord blood, and 3–6 mo saliva samples from 27 unrelated infants enrolled in the Rhode Island Child Health Study. We investigated 7 gene loci (KLF15, NR3C1, LEP, DEPTOR, DDIT4, HSD11B2, and CEBPB) and global methylation, using repetitive region LINE-1 and ALUYb8 sequences. We observed a great degree of interlocus, intertissue, and interindividual epigenetic variation in most of the analyzed loci. In correlation analyses, only cord blood NR3C1 promoter methylation correlated negatively with methylation in saliva. We conclude that placenta, cord blood, and saliva cannot be used as a substitute for one another to evaluate DNA methylation at these loci during infancy. Each tissue has a unique epigenetic signature that likely reflects their differential functions. Future studies should consider the uniqueness of these features...

This study investigates the phases of development of synchronous and asynchronous virtual communication produced in a community of inquiry (CoI) by analyzing the internal structure of each intervention in the forum and each chat session to determine the evolution of their social, cognitive and teaching character. It also analyzes the participating higher education students??? satisfaction with the activities, with the professors??? actions, and with themselves. We use a mixed methodology that includes content analysis of the virtual communications by crossing two categorization systems: (1) type of communication according to the model adopted from Garrison, Anderson and Archer (social, cognitive and teaching presence) and (2) phases in the evolution of the communication (initiation, proposal, development, opinion/closing and good-byes). The data are relevant to the students??? satisfaction and grades earned. The results suggest differences in the quantity and content of the communication in each phase and an evolution from social to cognitive elements, ending with social contributions. The students are satisfied with the virtual communications related to both the activities and the professors and evaluate themselves positively.

The traditional workplace is evolving; the way in which businesses communicate today is different than it was in the past and yet is likely to change again in the future. The current state of the economy and globalization has forced every organization to review its future business plans and cut costs everywhere including communications. Organizations are seeking out technology in hopes of finding new ways to reduce their bottom-line communication costs. Today, many enterprise business infrastructures are comprised of separate networks - voice, data, and mobile - yet most of the time these networks never interact. The ability to link business applications from various networks with communications proves to be valuable and is known as convergence. Convergence is defined as the combining of one or more elements into one. Unified Communications is a concept that looks to build on convergence, although it is not a new technology. Unified Communications is the term coined by the communications industry that signifies the comprehensive integration of various communication networks for reasons of increased revenue and reduced costs. Unified Communications will fundamentally transform the way in which people work - from decreased carrier costs to increased response times...

In this chapter we shall cover five general topics. First, we give a very brief history of the early social and behavioral science disaster studies both in the United States and elsewhere. One of our major points will be that, while the work has come far in the last three and a half decades, the initial research was rather uneven and many areas remained little examined or almost unexplored, including the operation of mass communication systems in disasters. A few reasons for this selective in attention are suggested.; National Science Foundation grant ECE-8504423

The primary focus of this study is to focus on the response of organizations to crisis. Organizations are the primary social units which respond to major crisis, whether at the community, national or international level. In particular, two major areas of organizational functioning are singled out for attention --decision making and communication. Both of these areas point to a range of behavior rather than to a single entity. Decision making involves the consideration of alternative outcomes, setting goals, deciding on means to chosen ends, etc. One important element in the present study is that decision making is viewed in an environment which is uncertain. The very notion of crisis implies uncertainty. In this context of uncertainty, organizations have to make decisions as to the allocation of resources for the accomplishment of goals. An integral part of the decision making process is communications, a process through which an organization sends a signal or message over a channel to another part of the organization (intraorganizational) or to another organization (interorganizational). The parts which are linked in this process create a communication structure. Obviously, communication is an essential part of the decision making process. The intent of the study is to use the cumulative research of DRC to build a set of propositions concerning organizational decision making communication. Outline of the Report Chapter 11 indicates the sources of materials covered in developing the propositions. Chapter III discusses the types of propositions which were developed. (A complete list is found in the Appendix.) Chapter IV discusses a reconceptualization of organized behavior in disaster which allows the propositions to be placed in a more realistic context. Chapter V provides a conclusion.

PatientsLikeMe is an organization that is developing a social networking platform with the aim of collecting patients’ self-reported medical data. The organization exploits the resulting data for research purposes. The data and the information transactions researchers engage in with patients are the only research context for PatientsLikeMe staff. How does PatientsLikeMe manage to produce real-world medical evidence from the data voluntarily contributed by dispersed patients? In order to produce information, the organization needs to cater to the needs of a myriad of local contexts while still collecting data in sufficient quantity and richness. In this study, I show how such an enterprise requires a complex and continuous exercise of balancing between the conflicting demands of patient engagement, necessary for collecting data on such a scale, and semantic context, necessary for collecting data that are sufficiently expressive. The study adds new insight to previous research efforts regarding how information stems from data that translate across contexts in variably standardized forms.
