  1. 1. Simulating Facilitation in a Spiking Neural Network

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Alexander Kuzmin; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Many insects are able to detect, isolate and track small targets that move quickly against a dynamic background. This ability is enabled by a group of neurons called small target motion detectors (STMD). These neurons, among other properties, have a type of short term memory called response facilitation.

  4. 4. Degradation of pesticides by the ligninolytic enzyme Laccase : optimisation of in vitro conditions, immobilisation and screening for natural mediators

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Microbiology

    Author : Naomi Farragher; [2013]
    Keywords : White rot fungi; Laccase; Bioprophylaxis; Diffuse sources; Co-formulation; Degradation; Mediators; Pesticides; Glyphosate; AMPA; Isoproturon; Enzyme encapsulation; Enzyme immobilisation; Natural mediators;

    Abstract : Pesticides are widely used in many industries but the majority reaches non-target organisms or locations through point or diffuse sources. Understanding conditions for their degradation is therefore important. The degradation of glyphosate, its metabolite AMPA and isoproturon using the ligninolytic enzyme laccase was studied. READ MORE
