BACKGROUND: Objective acoustic analysis is a key component of multidimensional voice assessment. OperaVOX is an iOS app which has been shown to be comparable to Multi Dimensional Voice Program for most principal measures of vocal function. As a relatively cheap, portable and easily accessible form of acoustic analysis, OperaVOX may be more clinically useful than laboratory-based software in many situations. This study aims to determine whether correlation exists between acoustic measurements obtained using OperaVOX, and perceptual evaluation of voice...

It's more than likely that a patient, their family member or a colleague may have recently asked you "Is there an app for that?" Mobile technology is inescapable. It is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life. Wherever we look, people are often hunched over and fully immersed by a small 6 x 3 inch screen, whether it be walking on the street, travelling on the bus, at the coffee shop or in the clinic waiting room. Mobile devices have infiltrated most aspects of our lives and offer quick, adaptive tech-based solutions to many previously administrative, repetitive or otherwise time-consuming tasks...

The use of emoticons and emoji is increasingly popular across a variety of new platforms of online communication. They have also become popular as stimulus materials in scientific research. However, the assumption that emoji/emoticon users' interpretations always correspond to the developers'/researchers' intended meanings might be misleading. This article presents subjective norms of emoji and emoticons provided by everyday users. The Lisbon Emoji and Emoticon Database (LEED) comprises 238 stimuli: 85 emoticons and 153 emoji (collected from iOS, Android, Facebook, and Emojipedia)...

We designed new hypoxia-activated prodrugs by conjugating (1-methyl-2-nitro-1H-imidazol-5-yl)methanol with 7-ethyl-10-hydroxy camptothecin (SN-38). Initially, we improved the method of multi-gram scale synthesis of (1-methyl-2-nitro-1H-imidazol-5-yl)methanol, which increased the yield to 42% compared to 8% by the original synthesis method. The improved method was used to synthesize evofosfamide (TH-302) and hypoxia-activated prodrugs of SN-38. Two different linkages between (1-methyl-2-nitro-1H-imidazol-5-yl)methanol and SN-38 were evaluated that afforded different hypoxia-selectivity and toxicity...

Educational software (apps) can improve science education by providing an interactive way of learning about complicated topics that are hard to explain with text and static illustrations. However, few educational apps are available for simulation of neural networks. Here, we describe an educational app, Neuronify, allowing the user to easily create and explore neural networks in a plug-and-play simulation environment. The user can pick network elements with adjustable parameters from a menu, i.e., synaptically connected neurons modelled as integrate-and-fire neurons and various stimulators (current sources, spike generators, visual, and touch) and recording devices (voltmeter, spike detector, and loudspeaker)...

BACKGROUND: In the U.S., breast cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women than any site other than lung cancer. Based upon attributable risks, about 30-35% of breast cancers could potentially be prevented by addressing obesity, physical inactivity, increased alcohol consumption, and carcinogenic exposures such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT). We need methods of reducing women's risks of this disease that are attractive and easy to use, widely accessible to diverse women, and able to be easily amended to account for new research...
