- ‘The contact angle dependence of the critical volume is quantitatively consistent with the experiments.’
- ‘The model demonstrates that the spherical cap solution is unstable at a contact-angle-dependent critical volume, reminiscent of the experimental findings.’
- ‘The critical volume of intravasation before symptoms are exhibited is not predictable.’
- ‘For instance, two copies of CLN3 cause a smaller critical volume than one copy, and higher doses can decrease volume still further.’
