Cell viability score (CVS) as a good indicator of critical concentration of benzalkonium chloride for toxicity in cultured ocular surface cell lines. Dynamics of cortical dendritic membrane potential and spikes in freely behaving rats.

The adaptive benefits of extended phenotypic plasticity are imprecisely defined due to a paucity of experiments examining traits that are manipulable and measurable across environments. The distribution in the cell cycle and drug efflux pump activity were measured by flow cytometry. Indirect effects showed that self-enhancement and openness to change predicted both forms of bullying through immoral behaviour.
