(University of Plymouth, 2013)The present study sought to investigate the effects of aging on interhemispheric transfer time (IHTT). Poffenberger (1912) devised a behavioural paradigm thought to be a measure of IHTT. In this paradigm IHTT is estimated ...
The medicinal and pharmacological screening of wheatgrass juice (Triticum aestivum L.): an investigation into chlorophyll content and antimicrobial activity (University of Plymouth, 2013)Plant products are of increasing interest in the search for new drugs and medicines in the treatment of disease; and the discovery of new alternatives to existing antibiotics is an important area of this research due to ...
(University of Plymouth, 2013)We present an overview of the laws governing the bending of beams and of beam theory. Particular emphasis is put on beam stiffness associated with different cross section shapes using the concept of the second moment of area.
(University of Plymouth, 2013)This comprehensive report conveys the nature, characteristics and causes of landsliding along the south east coast of the Isle of Wight. Landsliding is a major geohazard worldwide and is a major land shaping process on ...
(University of Plymouth, 2013)To begin to examine how non-specific therapy factors, in particular expectations, may impact on treatment outcomes for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for the treatment of chronic pain, an investigative analogue study ...
Feeding strategies in sympatric red howler monkeys (Alouatta seniculus), saddleback tamarins (Saguinus fuscicollis) and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis), in the Pacaya-Samiria national reserve, Peru (University of Plymouth, 2013)This study investigated the feeding strategies of sympatric red howlers (Alouatta seniculus), saddleback tamarins (Saguinus fuscicollis) and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis) in the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, ...
(University of Plymouth, 2013)The release of pollutants such as metals into the aquatic environment has raised concerns over the health of coral reefs, as elevated concentrations of metals are known to cause oxidative stress and bleaching. This is an ...
(University of Plymouth, 2013)To those that are not specialists in the area, audio analysis can seem a daunting subject. This is particularly the case when creating software which draws upon the subject. There are many frameworks available which aid ...
(University of Plymouth, 2013)The coral holobiont is a complex and diverse composition of organisms including algae, bacteria and viruses. A number of factors suggested as vital in shaping these communities are considered here. The anthozoan host ...
