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...
This work seeks to expand understandings regarding the impact of occupational illnesses and injuries on development. It identifies a marked lack of attention to the safety of workplaces in international policy, which belies the importance of occupational health concerns in creating sustainable...
Understanding how populations are structured and how they use natural and anthropogenic spaces is essential for effective wildlife management. A total of 510 barren-ground (Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus), 176 boreal (R. t. caribou), 11 mountain woodland (R. t. caribou), and 39 island (R. t....
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,...
Investigating Cultures of Food Security: Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Gender in Rural Kongwa, TanzaniaDownload
This thesis examines two cultural components of food security in rural Tanzania, specifically gendered mobilities and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) in the District of Kongwa. Drawing on critical and focused ethnographic principles, intra-household data was collected from 27 households in...
THE EXPERIENCE OF CAREGIVERS OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IN A PROJECT THAT USED SMS AS A TOOL TO IMPROVE INFORMATION ACCESS AND SOCIAL INTERACTION IN AN UNDER-RESOURCED COLOMBIAN COMMUNITYDownload
The community of El Codito, an under-resourced Bogota community, has a high population density with the majority living under the poverty line. People with disabilities (PWD) and their caregivers in El Codito experience a lack of access to health information and are socially isolated. This...
The World Bank and the Knowledge for Development (K4D) Initiative: A Post-Structuralist Investigation of the World Bank’s Attempts to Govern Global Development KnowledgeDownload
In 1999, the World Bank launched the K4D initiative as part of its new development agenda. The Bank also established itself as the global development knowledge bank suggesting that these moves would yield more pro-poor development results. This thesis examines the Bank’s knowledge ventures and...
The developmental programs of maturing seed and fruit in pea (Pisum sativum L.) are tightly controlled by the interactions of several phytohormones, including gibberellins (GAs), auxins, and abscisic acid (ABA). To more fully understand these hormone networks and their roles in controlling...
Retinoic acid prevents alteration of neuronal morphology and locomotion of zebrafish embryos induced by ethanol exposure during gastrulationDownload
Ethanol (EtOH) exposure during development has been shown to lead to deficits in fine and gross motor control. In this study I used zebrafish embryos in the gastrulation stage to determine the developmental effects of a brief, 5-hour exposure to EtOH. I treated fertilized zebrafish eggs from 5.25...
The continuing use of crude oil and development of the oil industry have resulted in complex hydrocarbon mixtures becoming common environmental contaminants. These contaminants, such as oil sands process affected water (OSPW) and crude oil, are especially of concern in aquatic ecosystems. OSPW...
