  • Kamruzzaman, Md (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2015)
    The Earth’s outer core is a rotating ellipsoidal shell of compressible, stratified and self-gravitating fluid. As such, in the treatment of geophysical problems a realistic model of this body needs to be considered. In ...
  • Zhang, Zhao; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Kinesiology and Physical EducationArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiololgy and Physical Education, 2015)
    One of the dominant skills in badminton is the forehand overhead smash. This technique accounts for twenty percent of all attacks during a game. Unfortunately, no existing research has used full-body three-dimensional ...
  • Zelinski, Erin Lynn; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : Department of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2016)
    This thesis examines naturally occurring variability in the performance of spatial tasks in order to shed light on the neurobiology that underpins human experience. It tests the theory that differences in performance of ...
  • Wong, Scott; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2016)
    Animals are thought to learn from reinforcement by a dopamine-dependent reward prediction error, based on the difference between the expected and actual value of a reward. Here we demonstrate that this learning signal can ...
  • Hallworth, Jillian R.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Kinesiology and Physical EducationArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical Education, 2016)
    Exercise is a known contributor to fat loss, its efficacy increasing when combined with an energy-restricted diet in order to create an energy deficit. Claims exist that exercise intensity may influence one’s hunger and ...
  • Brinkmann, Lars (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2015)
    This project investigated the influence of community structure in reservoirs on trophodynamics, growth and mercury biomagnification in the apex consumer and fisheries target species northern pike (Esox lucius). Where lake ...
  • Willms, Chad Ryan; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2005)
    This study investigated the influence of geomorphic context and flow regulation on cottonwood (Populus) age structure, stand size, recruitment rates, and annual radial growth patterns along the Oldman River in southern ...
  • Walz, Paul S (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biology, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biology, 2011)
    Most bacterial infections can be correlated to contamination of consumables such as food and water. Upon contamination, boil water advisories have been ordered to ensure water is safe to consume, despite the evidence that ...
  • Boyko, Oleksandr; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2004)
    The genome of living organisms is constantly subjected to the environmental influences that result in different negative, negligible or positive impacts. The ability to maintain the genome integrity and simultaneously ...
  • Versoza, M. L. Sophia; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Kinesiology, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology, 2010)
    Symptoms associated with menopause are known to negatively affect quality of life for many women. Moreover, concern about risks associated with hormone replacement therapy can prompt women to seek non-pharmacological ...
  • Amlin, Nadine M.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2000Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Scinces, 2000)
    Cottonwoods (Populus sp.) and willows (Salix sp.) are generally limited to riparian landscapes in semi-arid regions of western North America. Water availability is a major determining factor for the establishment, growth ...
  • Ortiz de Guinea Lopez de Arana, Ana; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Management (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Management, 2003Management, 2003)
    This study examines the validity of the Thong et al. (1996) model of Information Systems effectiveness in Canadian small businesses. The model evaluates the importance of managerial support and external expertise (vendors ...
  • Spicer, Garry; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Management (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Management, 2004Management, 2004)
    Modern societies rely on Information Systems (IS), yet their protection has long been considered ineffective. Researchers and practitioners have struggled to understand the persistence of this phenomenon, but both agree ...
  • Nie, Yimin (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2014)
    This dissertation explores a novel statistical technique—information geometric method for theory and its application in analysis of multiple neuronal spike data. The previous studies have indicated that information-geometric ...
  • Smith, Graeme John; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2000Arts and ScienceDepartment of Physics, 2000)
    The performance of existing and planned millimeter and submillimeter astronomical arrays is limited by fluctuations in the amount of atmosperic water vapor along the atenna's line of sight. Correcting the resulting phase ...
  • Esteki, Koorosh; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2016)
    I present the results of three spectroscopic projects. First, we analysed spectra of acetylene diluted by carbon dioxide (CO2) in the R-branch region of the v1+v3 combination vibrational band (6470-6618 cm-1). The spectra ...
  • Aladedunye, Adekunle F. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2011)
    The present study sought for practical ways to improve the frying performance of oils without compromising the availability of the essential fatty acids and nutraceuticals. To this end, the influence of temperature, ...
  • Fischer, Jeffrey J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2007)
    Protein synthesis is a highly conserved process across all domains of life, both structurally and functionally. This cyclic process is catalyzed by numerous soluble protein factors that interact with the ribosome to ...
  • Stratulat, Cynthia; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, c2012Education, 2012)
    This is a story of a life lived as an artist and teacher. This is a story of living and writing inside dramatic space while activating creative pedagogy. What does it mean to create inside a theatrical collaborative ...
  • Coatham, Mackenzie Leigh (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and BiochemistryArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2014)
    The functional roles of the two universally conserved bacterial GTPases, HflX and YchF, are poorly understood. Both proteins associate with 70S ribosomes as well as 30S and 50S ribosomal subunits. Understanding exactly how ...
