Adolescents’ safety on the Internet is a prime concern in society. Sexual predators use the online environment regularly to solicit adolescents for sexual purposes; however, we know very little about the experiences of adolescents who become victimized in this way. This research used a thematic...
Aquatic organisms are susceptible to waterborne nanoparticles and there is only limited understanding of the mechanisms by which these emerging contaminants affect biological processes. The unique properties of nanomaterials necessitate evaluation of standard toxicity testing techniques to...
Background: The trigeminal ganglion (TG) is a cluster of neuron bodies in the cranium that supplies the face and skull with sensory innervation. In the mouse, neurons of the TG supply the whisker pad that is important for spatial navigation and intraspecific communication. Specialized cells in...
Characterization of Human Pancreatic Beta-cell Progenitors as a Means to Alleviate the Shortage of Donor Tissue for Islet TransplantationDownload
The current shortage of islet tissue from cadaveric human donors is not sustainable and will preclude islet transplantation from becoming a widespread therapeutic treatment for those with type 1 diabetes. A potential alternative source of tissue may be through isolating, expanding, and...
Conserving cougars in a rural landscape: habitat requirements and local tolerance in west-central AlbertaDownload
Maintaining large carnivores in human-dominated landscapes poses a significant conservation challenge. Extirpation is common because of habitat loss or direct persecution. I studied cougar habitat selection and human perception of cougars in west-central Alberta to better understand...
Global citizenship education in Alberta represents multiple, conflicting frameworks. Thus, there is a great need to understand how global citizenship is constructed in real school contexts in order to attend to how global citizenship might work towards socially just aims versus promote...

Development of the Voltage-Gated Sodium and Potassium Currents Underlying Excitability in Zebrafish Skeletal MuscleDownload
Excitable cells display dynamically regulated changes in the properties of ion currents during development. These changes are crucial for the proper maturation of cellular excitability, and therefore have the potential to affect more sophisticated functions, including neural circuits, movements,...
Development, Anatomy, and Phylogenetic Relationships of Jawless Vertebrates and Tests of Hypotheses about Early Vertebrate EvolutionDownload
The origin and early evolution of vertebrates remain one of the central questions of comparative biology. This clade, which features a breathtaking diversity of complex forms, has generated profound, unresolved questions, including: How are major lineages of vertebrates related to one another?...
Structural brain changes occur in a complex manner throughout life, and understanding healthy brain development is crucial for the study of brain abnormalities in various conditions. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an advanced magnetic resonance imaging technique that provides information about...
