Design and <em>in silico</em> screening of analogs of rilpivirine as novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) for antiretroviral therapy

Design and in silico screening of analogs of rilpivirine as novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) for antiretroviral therapy

Njoo et al. | Mar 22, 2021

In this study, the authors use high-throughput virtual screening to design and evaluate a set of non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors for binding affinity to the protein reverse transcriptase. These studies have important applications toward HIV therapies.

Effect of mass and center of gravity on vehicle speed and braking performance

Effect of mass and center of gravity on vehicle speed and braking performance

Whitfield et al. | Mar 16, 2021

In this study, the authors test whether a gravity vehicle, which is a vehicle powered by its own gravity on a ramp, could be designed to move faster when mathematical calculations for optimal mass and center of gravity were applied in the design.

Exploring a Possible Link Between ADHD and Inattentional Blindness

Exploring a Possible Link Between ADHD and Inattentional Blindness

Bowen et al. | Dec 21, 2020

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is characterized by impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention. The authors hypothesized that people with ADHD would display more inattentional blindness in perceptually simple tasks and less inattentional blindness in perceptually complex tasks....

The Effect of School Climate and Parenting Style on Academic Achievement

The Effect of School Climate and Parenting Style on Academic Achievement

Scott et al. | Dec 16, 2020

Research suggests that less effective styles of parenting tend to negatively affect grades, and more effective styles tend to produce higher grades. In this study, the authors verify previous research and confirm such relationships in a sample of African American students in a college preparatory...
