Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Computers in Human BehaviorAuthor(s): Marlena R. Fraune, Benjamin C. Oisted, Catherine E. Sembrowski, Kathryn A. Gates, Margaret M. Krupp, Selma ŠabanovićAbstractAs robots become prevalent, people are increasingly interacting with multiple robots at once. Thus, it is important to not only examine how robot behavior toward humans affects interaction, but how robot behavior toward other robots affects interaction. We examine this in two studies. In Study 1, 630 participants from the USA and Japan viewed a video of one or more minimally social robots interactin...

However, emotions can be expressed in the vocal channel too, yet the relationship between trust and vocally expressive agents has not yet been investigated. We use a game theory paradigm to examine the influence of smiling in the v...

In the brief statement regarding the Kelsey departure from the ADHA we read the following. "During [Kelsey's] time, the agency has done much to be proud of, particularly working with stakeholders and the community to provide more than 22 million Australians with an online summary of their key health information through their My Health Record, and to support the introduction of e-prescri bing," ADHA said in a statement.” I think a small fact check of his actual achievements is in order. In his 3 year tenure. 1. He managed one of the worst Government policy implementations of a major initiative that left...

The obscure enigma in host-dermatophyte immunopathogenic interactions is the T regulatory (Treg) and T-helper (Th) 17  cell role in maintaining immune homeostasis. We attempted to understand the regulation and recognition of lineage-specific r...

It is a common immunosuppressive disease in mink farms worldwide, which seriously endangers the development of the mink farming industry. Strengthening the understanding of the positive serum rate and spatial distribution of AMD is of great significance for the prevention and control of disease caused by the Ale...

In this study, we compared the transcriptional response of virulence-associated genes in high (PMPAN001) and low (PMPAN007) virulence P. multocida capsular type A strains in lung tissues and in vitro. These clinical isolates differ in their organ bacterial loads, mRNA abundance of the same virulence genes between lung and culture medium, and extent of lung damage. Among the eight virulence-associated genes (fimA, tbpA, exbD, fur, oma87, pmHAS, nanH, and tonB), seven genes showed higher expression in lung compared with in vitro at 16 h (P ≤ 0.05) in PMPAN001, but not in PMPAN007. FimA, exbD, fur, oma87, pmHAS, an...

Infection of eukaryotic cells with influenza A viruses triggers the induction of innate immune system through the interaction between pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) and pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), which culminate in the induction of interferons (IFNs). Consequently, IFNs bind...

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of a diet supplemented with beta-glucan from yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Sc-βG), on the stress response of Oreochromis mossambicus (Tilapia) to ammonia. Fish were divided into four groups, including a control fed a basal diet and three experimental groups fed diets supplemented with Sc-βG at 2, 5 and 10 mg/g respectively. After 8 weeks, experimental groups were exposed to ammonia at 100 mg L−1 for 1 week. Growth was measured after the 8-week feeding trial and serum, mucus, and liver tissue were sampled before and after the ammonia challenge. Compared with ...
