  • Hardy, Jared C.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2007)
    Conventional cylinder test measures have limited sensitivity in determining hemiparkinson rat forelimb use asymmetry and approximating substantia nigra (SN) dopaminergic neuron loss. This thesis investigates which cylinder ...
  • Nemati, Farshad; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2008)
    Over the past five decades spatial behavior has been a subject of research interest in psychology and neuroscience, in part based on philosophical theories of mental spatial representations. In order to continue uncovering ...
  • Sacrey, Lori-Ann Rosalind (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neurosicence, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2012)
    The reach-to-eat movement, in which a hand is advanced towards a food item, shapes to grasp the food item, and withdrawals to place the food item into the mouth for eating, is a behaviour that is performed daily. The ...
  • Iwaniuk, Andrew N.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2000Arts and ScienceDepartment of Pyschology, 2000)
    Emancipating the forelimbs from locomotion for use in other activities, such as food manipulation, is a major evolutionary milestone. A variety of selective forces and evolutionary correlates may influence the evolution ...
  • Gharbawie, Omar A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2006Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2006)
    Middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke can produce chronic incapacitating motor impairments. Understanding the neural basis of the motor syndromes is complicated by the diversity of neural structures damaged but the problem ...
  • Farr, Tracy Deanne; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2003)
    Stroke is the third leading cause of death and survivors suffer motor impairments. The rodent sensorimotor system is similar to the human's, making rodents a good model to study the effects of stroke. Transgenic technology ...
  • Foroud, Afra; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2008)
    The purpose of this thesis is to describe the organization of the movements of skilled reaching. Our knowledge of reaching behaviour has been limited to an understanding of specific actions. Results from this thesis ...
  • Yim, Tonia Tan-Ling; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2007)
    This thesis investigates the role of the hippocampus in object memory. Currently, the role of the hippocampus in object recognition is unclear, with some studies demonstrating a delay-dependent impairment after hippocampal ...
  • Sacrey, Lori-Ann Rosalind; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceNeuroscience, 2008)
    The sensory control of movements has been shown to be impaired with Parkinson’s disease. I investigated the task, reach-to-eat, in which advancing of the limb towards a target is guided by vision and withdrawal of the ...
  • Coles, Brenda Louise Kay; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1996Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 1996)
    Neural changes in the forelimb cortex were studied at Postnatal (P) 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 100 days. Six biological markers of brain development, cortical thickness, Layer III pyramidal cell morphology, glial fibrillary ...
  • Gholamrezaei, Gita (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2011)
    Rats display considerable individual differences in performance of skilled reaching for food. Such variability in the normal performance of the rats intrudes upon the interpretation of many different experimental ...
  • Cooper, Stephanie A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2005)
    Changes in postural stability following sensory manipulation were investigated among Parkinson's disease patients and healthy older adults. Sixteen Parkinson's disease patients (PD; mean age 68.2 + 2.7 years) and sixteen ...
  • Wong, Yvonne; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2004)
    To understand the grasping abnormalities in Parkinson's or stroke patients, normal grasping must be examined, and whether that normality is determined by biological factors or experiential influence must also be considered. ...
  • Harker, Kenneth Troy; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2002)
    Behavioural, electrophysiological, and anatomical evidence suggests that retrosplenial (RS) cortex (areas RSA and RSG) plays a role in spatial navigation. It has been recently suggested that it is damage to the underlying ...
  • Gharbawie, Omar A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2002)
    The ascending cholinergic and serotonergic projections are central to cortical activation and normal behavior. The objective of this thesis was to determine whether unilaterally damaging both of these systems would disrupt ...
  • Hines, Dustin J; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Faculty of Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2004)
    The thesis examines the ability of animals to construct a home base. The home base is a point in space where animals rear, groom, and circle and is a primary element in organized spatial behaviour (Eilam and Golani 1989). ...
  • Field, Evelyn F.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2006Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2006)
    Whether there are sex differences in the kinematic organization of non-reproductive behaviors is rarely addressed. In this thesis, evidence is presented that male and female rats organize their posture and stepping ...
