homeless man’s good deed challenges others to be kind
This study used a RespirActTM system to deliver a repeatable isocapnic hyperoxia stimulus to investigate the independent effect of O2 on cerebral physiology, removing any potential confounds related to altered CO2. T1 independent Phase Contrast MRI was used to demonstrate that isocapnic hyperoxia has no significant effect on carotid blood flow (normoxia 201 11 ml/min, 0.3 0.8 % change during hyperoxia, p = 0.8), whilst Look Locker ASL was used to demonstrate that there is no significant change in arterial cerebral blood volume (normoxia 1.3 0.4 %, 0.5 5 % change during hyperoxia). These are in contrast to significant changes in blood flow observed for hypercapnia (6.8 1.5 %/mmHg CO2).
We find that basic behavioral patterns of cooperation and punishment in the laboratory are replicable online. The most important challenge of online interactive experiments is participant dropout. We discuss measures for reducing dropout and show that, for our case study, dropouts are exogenous to the experiment.

What causes Marfan Syndrome?Marfan Syndrome is caused by a fault in a gene on chromosome 15, which codes for the glycoprotein fibrillin. This is known as the fibrillin 1 gene, or FBN1 for short. Fibrillin is a major building block of microfibrils, which constitute the structural components of the suspensory ligament of the lens and serve as substrates for elastin in the aorta and other connective tissues throughout the body.
