(15) Other kids were out there playing at whatever; I was off making something blow up and filming it, or making a mould of my sister's head using alginating plaster.
(16) This carnival of camera phones, caressing and even groping (the waxen men do have "moulds" where their private parts would be so that their trousers hang properly, but no, nothing too realistic down there) is the celebrity world were we in control.
(17) A soluble cytochrome was isolated and purified from the slime mould Physarum polycephalum and identified as cytochrome c by room-temperature and low-temperature (77 degrees K) difference spectroscopy.
(18) The use of fibrin as a resorbable biological adhesive permits moulding of HA granules into individually shaped implants.

(20) As related to the control lot, the addition of these acid results, in the first two doses, in a decrease and slowing-down of the growth of the mould and the production of its two mycotoxins (patulin and byssochlamic acid).
(n.) A plate forming an exact faximile of a page of type or of an engraving, used in printing books, etc.; specifically, a plate with type-metal face, used for printing.

(1) Isolates showed a decrease in the intensity of apomorphine-induced stereotyped behaviours but no change in stereotypy induced by AMPH.
(2) When S+ followed cocaine, stereotyped bar-pressing developed with markedly increased responding during the remainder of the session.
(3) The media's image of a "gamer" might still be of a man in his teens or 20s sitting in front of Call of Duty for six-hour stretches, but that stereotype is now more inaccurate than ever.
(4) Adult crickets have stereotyped patterns of motor output which are generated by the central nervous system, and which serve as a standard against which emerging nymphal patterns can be measured.
(5) Global 'abnormality', hunching (rigid arching of back), hindlimb abduction, forepaw myoclonus, stereotyped lateral head movements, backing, and immobility occurred significantly only in drug-treated rats.
(6) High-frequency, stereotyped behavior may interfere with the acquisition of appropriate behavior.
(7) These results support the hypothesis that amphetamine-induced stereotyped behavior functions to reduce stress or arousal and additionally suggest that this effect is largely independent of underlying dopaminergic mechanisms.
(8) injections in the rat, whereas serotonin activity was assayed by measuring drug-induced inhibition of 5-hydroxytryptophan accumulation, and DA activity was assessed by quantifying stereotyped behavior after both i.p.
(9) These experiments were designed to examine the time course of development of the enhanced stereotyped behavioral response to amphetamine after withdrawal from chronic pretreatment with amphetamine and to determine whether this time course correlates with that of the enhancement in the amphetamine-induced stimulation of the release of dopamine (DA) from striatal slices.
(10) For children in the early years this will be about learning right from wrong, learning to take turns and share, and challenging negative attitudes and stereotypes."
(11) Specifically, the study attempted to determine if there were differences in perceptions of sex-stereotypic attributes among four groups of individuals: male medical students, female medical students, male allied health students, and female allied health students.
(12) A 6-year-old boy's stereotypic mouthing was assessed during high vs low response activities, familiar vs novel activities and avoidance vs partial-avoidance conditions.
(13) Three-quarters of the sample was impaired on at least one of four discourse tests (knowing the alternate meanings of ambiguous words in context; getting the point of figurative or metaphoric expressions; bridging the inferential gaps between events in stereotyped social situations; and producing speech acts that express the apparent intentions of others).
(14) In La Shish, the beloved local halal restaurant where Wanda Beydoun has worked a minimum wage managing job for 16 years, these stereotypes are a source of amusement.
(15) His study finds that the differences are a result of stereotyping, as opposed to other factors, and are particularly pronounced in areas where there are fewer black children – or fewer children from very poor estates.
(16) (4) alpha and beta-adrenoceptor blocking agents and alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine failed to reduce the hyperactivity induced by 2-amino-5,6-dihydroxytetralin or the stereotyped behaviour induced by 2-(N,N-dipropyl)-amino-5,6-dihydroxytetralin.
(17) The stereotypical view of the historian is that of a stodgy, bespectacled individual poring over tomes of printed text, dusty manuscripts, and thousands of index cards.
(18) What we do know about Snowden suggests he doesn't easily fit into any of those categories, or indeed, any stereotype.
(19) From an analysis of the findings it is clear that different types of defence mechanisms operate in patients according to their hemodialysis status and that there is a more stereotyped use of these mechanisms in patients with no possibility of escape-except of death-seems to provoke rigid and stereotyped defence mechanisms in these patients.
(20) The activity of oxytocin neurones was differentiated from that of vasopressin cells on the basis of their stereotyped activity in suckling.
