Authors: Sohn WM, Na BK Abstract We are going to describe the female soboliphymid nematodes, which were recovered from the stomach of a Asian badger, Meles leucurus (Mammalia: Mustelidae), in Geochang-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea. In February 1998, we found 2 peculiar nematodes with a cup-like organ in the anterior end from the stomach of badger. Recovered worms were fixed with 10% formalin, cleared in glycerin-alcohol solution and observed under a light microscope with a micrometer. They were 34.46 (33.43-35.50) mm long by 2.13 mm at maximum width. Cephalic sucker cup-like, 3.34 (3.13-3.55) mm wide, 2.40 (2.25-2.5...

Authors: Kummerfeld E, Anker JA, Rix A, Kushner MG Abstract Research in the domain of psychopathology has been hindered by hidden variables-variables that are important to understanding and treating psychopathological illnesses but are unmeasured. Recent methodological advances in machine learning have culminated in the ability to discover and identify the influence of hidden variables that confound the observed relationships among measured variables. We apply a combination of traditional methods and more recent advances to a data set of alcohol use disorder patients with comorbid internalizing disorders, and find ...
