    This research looks at the potential of community film-making as an acculturation resource for use by resettling refugees. It explores the questions: How does participatory filmmaking affect intergenerational tension ...
  • Bannerman, Brittany A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of EducationEducation, 2016)
    This study investigated co-researchers’ accounts of mystical and transcendent exceptional human experiences (EHEs) and integration processes in the context of two music festivals (i.e., Shambhala and Burning Man). Six ...
  • Nixon, Gary (SpringerHealth SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2012)
    In this article, we look at how an addicted person can through the therapeutic process replace the addiction “short cut” counterfeit quest for wholeness with an authentic quest for wholeness using Wilber’ transpersonal ...
  • Gaetz, Cindy L. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, c2013Education, 2013)
    A phenomenological-hermeneutic method of research was employed to determine the nature of the lived experiences of adults as they transformed past-life trauma into wholeness in this life and the associated meanings attached ...
  • Boyko, Alex; Blevins, Todd; Yao, Youli; Golubov, Andrey; Bilichak, Andriy; Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; Hollunder, Jens; Meins, Frederick; Kovalchuk, Igor (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeFriedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical ResearchGhent University, 2010)
    Epigenetic states and certain environmental responses in mammals and seed plants can persist in the next sexual generation. These transgenerational effects have potential adaptative significance as well as medical and ...
  • Rahavi, Mohammad Reza; Migicovsky, Zoë; Titov, Viktor; Kovalchuk, Igor (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2011)
    Exposure to abiotic and biotic stress results in changes in plant physiology and triggers genomic instability. Recent reports suggest that the progeny of stressed plants also exhibit changes in genome stability, stress ...

    Previously, we reported the generation of a virusinduced systemic signal that increased the somatic and meiotic recombination rates in tobacco mosaic virus (TMV)-infected tobacco plants. Here, we analyzed the progeny ...
  • Babenko, Olena M.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2015)
    Recent human and animal studies indicate that stressful experiences in utero may have long-term consequences on the future mental wellbeing of the offspring across several generations. Epigenetic mechanisms, such as microRNA ...
  • Migicovsky, Zoë (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2012)
    Abiotic stresses are one of the major limiting factors of plant growth and thus crop productivity. Exposure to these stresses, including temperature and UV, cause physiological and epigenetic changes in plants. Such ...
  • Ambeskovic, Mirela; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2013Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2013)
    Exposure to adverse environmental factors such as prenatal stress (PS) can have longlasting effects on brain health and disease. Through direct and transgenerational genetic and epigenetic influences on healthy development ...
