  • In conclusion, copy number variation of the 16p13.3 locus seems to be an important parameter for prediction of disease recurrence in colon cancer. (nih.gov)
  • Gain of the 16p13.3 locus (including the RNA binding protein, fox-1 homolog gene, RBFOX1) was linked with a worse recurrence-free survival in our patient cohort. (nih.gov)
  • So the team decided to map the mutation in the mass1 locus in detail and to identify the nature of the protein in order to cast light on the epileptic disorder. (unisci.com)
  • In a related preview, Daniel Burgess of the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston discusses the potential functional roles of the mass1 protein and lays out the important future questions in determining how mutations at this locus lead to audiogenic epilepsy. (unisci.com)
  • The locus coeruleus , a small nucleus located in the pons, is the main source of noradrenaline in the forebrain. (scholarpedia.org)
  • Individuals with a strong internal locus of control believe events in their life derive primarily from their own actions: for example, when receiving exam results, people with an internal locus of control tend to praise or blame themselves and their abilities. (wikipedia.org)

  • A person's "locus" (plural "loci", Latin for "place" or "location") is conceptualized as internal (a belief that one can control one's own life) or external (a belief that life is controlled by outside factors which the person cannot influence, or that chance or fate controls their lives).

  • 1995). The transient locus coeruleus activation is closely associated with the overt reaction to the salient stimulus (autonomic response to stressful stimuli, orienting response to novel or intense stimuli) and locus coeruleus responses disappear when the behavioral responses habituate Figure 3 . (scholarpedia.org)
  • Brain stem inputs are thought to have the strongest influence on locus coeruleus neurons, because they directly target their cell bodies. (scholarpedia.org)

  • Careful distinctions should also be made between locus of control (a concept linked with expectancies about the future) and attributional style (a concept linked with explanations for past outcomes), or between locus of control and concepts such as self-efficacy . (wikipedia.org)
  • Bernard Weiner argued that rather than ability-versus-luck, locus may relate to whether attributions are made to stable or unstable causes. (wikipedia.org)
