  • Brain Circulation diaspora and international competitiveness
    European Management Journal, 2008
    Co-Authors: Rosalie L. Tung

    Abstract:

    Summary Drawing upon findings of several studies, this paper examines the interrelationships between Brain Circulation or “triangular human talent flow”, ethnic diasporas (specifically, the Chinese and Indian diasporas), and a country’s international competitiveness. Globalization, the lowering of immigration and emigration barriers to the movement of people, and the emerging concept of boundaryless careers have all contributed to the phenomenon of Brain Circulation. Brain Circulation replaces the traditional concepts of Brain drain versus Brain gain because of the growing mobility of human talent across international boundaries. Implications, both theoretical and practical, are then discussed.

  • Brain Circulation to the UK? Knowledge and Investment Flows from Highly Skilled British Expatriates in Vancouver
    Journal of Management Development, 2012
    Co-Authors: William S. Harvey

    Abstract:

    Purpose – This paper seeks to address two research questions: first, to what extent do highly skilled migrants intend to make personal business and financial investments in their home countries, and second, what factors influence them to invest in their home countries?Design/methodology/approach – The results are based on face‐to‐face and telephone interviews which took place between September, 2008 and March, 2009 with 64 highly skilled British migrants working in Vancouver, Canada. Respondents were asked a combination of open‐ and closed‐ended questions.Findings – The results of this study find that the vast majority of respondents are not investing in or intending to return to their home country, which indicates that they contributing to Brain Circulation in a limited extent.Practical implications – The paper argues that governments and organisations in the home country can play an important role in facilitating Brain Circulation in Europe.Originality/value – Much of the academic literature suggests th…

  • Brain Circulation? British and Indian Scientists in Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Asian Population Studies, 2008
    Co-Authors: William S. Harvey

    Abstract:

    This article argues that despite the growing emphasis on Brain Circulation, most British and Indian scientists working in Boston, Massachusetts, USA are still contributing to a Brain drain in their home countries. I show that although the majority of respondents have regular, albeit different kinds of business contacts with their home countries, this has yet to translate into significant personal investments. Although most British and Indian scientists do not forge social contacts with professionals in their home countries, I suggest that such links could help induce investment in the UK and India in the future.

  • Serotonin 5-HT2 receptors and Brain Circulation.
    Journal of cardiovascular pharmacology, 1990
    Co-Authors: Nicolas F. Wiernsperger

    Abstract:

    Most evidence in the literature concerning the role of serotonin in ischemia originates from Brain research. This is partly because the central nervous system is particularly prone to accumulation of 5-HT, due to the neuronal sources of the amine in addition to circulating 5-HT from platelets. In ischemia, platelet invasion, rupture of the blood-Brain barrier, liberation of 5-HT from nerve terminals inside the vessel wall, and necrosis of serotonergic neurons favor local increases of the transmitter in the Brain. The pathophysiological consequences include amplifications of processes such as vasoconstriction of major and collateral arteries, edema formation, platelet aggregation, and blood sludging. 5-HT2 receptors appear to be the major effector of these actions of serotonin, judging from experimental and clinical pharmacology data with specific or partial 5-HT2 serotonergic antagonists. This review summarizes current knowledge on the key role serotonin plays in the induction or consequences of Brain ischemia.
