    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 ...
  • Mao, Dun (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2017)
    By virtue of its anatomical connections, the retrosplenial cortex (RSC) is well suited to mediate bidirectional communication between the hippocampal formation and the neocortex. However, what information is encoded in the ...
  • Schwindel, C. Daniela (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2014)
    Episodic memory formation and spatial navigation are core functions of the hippocampus. Embedded in a path integration based navigational system, the hippocampus generates orthogonal codes for different environments. To ...
  • Hogg, Theresa M.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Pyschology, 2002)
    This thesis used a rodent model of skilled forelimb training and intracortical microstimulation to examine the relationship between learning and cortical reorganization. This thesis examines how reorganization is related ...
  • Zhu, Yunpu; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer Science, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2010)
    The evolution of wireless networks and mobile device technologies has increased concerns about performance and security of mobile systems. We propose a new secured applicationlevel architecture for a two-party mobile ...
  • Deshpande, Sushant; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer Science, c2009Arts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2009)
    Even though lambda calculus (λ-calculus) and combinatory logic (CL) appear to be equivalent, they are not. As yet we do not have a reduction in CL which corresponds to β-reduction in λ-calculus. There are three proposals ...

  • Witharana, Wing Kar Li (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2011)
    Activity-induced immediate-early gene (IEG) transcription foci can be labelled with fluorescent probes, permitting high temporal and spatial resolution in mapping neuronal circuits. Previous quantification approaches have ...
  • Nielson, Kayleigh (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2017)
    This thesis investigates the factors that affect non-native plant occurrence at freshwater springs in southern Alberta, Canada, with special focus on the effect of human disturbance, and the life history traits of ...
  • Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biomolecular Sciences, [c2010]Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2010)
    The classical paradigm of radiation biology is based on the notion that ionizing particle has to traverse a nucleus of a living cell in order to damage genetic material either directly or via production of short living ...
  • Demchuk, Aubrey Marissa (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2014)
    Early immediate-early gene (IEG) studies and electrophysiological data support the “uniform random sample with replacement” (URSWR) model for the orthogonalization of memory representations in the rodent hippocampus. This ...
  • da Costa Araujo, Juliana; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2017)
    Arginine vasopressin and oxytocin influence many aspects of behavior, including sociality. However, there are only a few studies of non-reproductive social relationships. Richardson’s ground squirrel (Urocitellus richardsonii) ...
