    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 ...
  • Booth, Evan L. J (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Geography, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2011)
    This thesis is focused on determining the rate at which the climate of western North America (WNA) has changed in recent history, and looks at the impact that projected future climatic changes will have on a large ...
  • Larson, Robert; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2008)
    A modelling approach focused on snow hydrology was developed and applied to project future changes in spring streamflow volumes in the St. Mary River headwaters basin, Montana. A spatially distributed, physically-based, ...

    The plant hormone auxin is involved in a wide range of developmental phenomena in plants. It carries out many of its effects through a signalling network involving the regulation of specific genes, including those involved ...
  • Davis, Reed (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Geography, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2012)
    Forest disturbances significantly affect snowmelt dominated watersheds. Given that snowmelt from mountain regions provides up to 80% of the annual stream ow in the North American west, disturbances in these watersheds will ...
  • MacDonald, Ryan J; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Geography, c2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2008)
    Climate change poses significant threats to mountain ecosystems in North America (Barnett et al., 2005) and will subsequently impact water supply for human and ecosystem use. To assess these threats, we must have an ...
  • Sheppard, Dennis Leslie; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1996Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 1996)
    A characteristic of alpine drainage basins is the very sparse distribution of meteorological recording stations. This study models a contiguous distribution of microclimate and snowpack accumulation in the upper Oldman ...
  • Chen, Xin; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Management (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Management, 2005Management, 2005)
    Cause Related Marketing has grown tremendously as a marketing tool since the 1980s. Numerous studies have been conducted in North America, Europe and Australia with mostly consumers of European Descent, but no such study ...
  • Gidyk, Darryl C (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2011)
    The present thesis examines the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation and forelimb rehabilitation on motor recovery after stroke in rats. Post-stroke motor outcomes were quantified using an innovative battery ...
  • Kirkland, Scott; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2007)
    Stress has been shown to exacerbate cell death and cognitive deficits after ischemic injury in rodents, however, little is known of the effects of stress on motor recovery. The objective of this present thesis is to ...
  • Costa, Estela; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2010)
    The novel hypothesis that antimicrobial growth promoters (AGP) function by modulating the mammalian immune system was tested. Sampling methods to characterize the mucosa-associated microbiota of the murine intestine by ...
  • Huff, Phillip W.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2003)
    Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPARy) is a transcription factor that regulates adipogenic genes and preadipocyte factor-1 (pref-1) is a transmembrane protein that regulates preadipocyte differnetiation. The ...
  • Bondaruk, Mandy; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2003)
    Brassica napus is known to contain an endogenous and soluble stearoyl-acyl carrier protein (^918:0-ACP) desaturase, but does not express a palmitic (16:0)-ACP desaturase. Levels of 16:0 are low in canola oil and are ...
  • Koturbash, Igor; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2008)
    Ionizing radiation (IR), along with being an important diagnostic and treatment modality, is a potent tumor-causing agent, and the risk of secondary radiation treatment-related cancers is a growing clinical problem. Now ...
  • Babenko, Olena Mykolayivna; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2010)
    Previous findings showed that mild chronic restraint stress causes motor impairments in rats. These behavioural impairments might be related to molecular changes in brain areas that regulate motor functions, such as the ...
  • Entz, Susan Carol; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2005)
