Teaching portfolios have been used by faculty in postsecondary institutions for summative and formative evaluations since the early 1980s (Knapper, 1995). Despite their proliferation, there remains much to be learned about the use of teaching portfolios and whether they are perceived as being...
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?...
Parental Positive Affect, Child Negative Affect and Resiliency in Preschool: Investigating whether some children develop “for-better”Download
Using the vantage sensitivity model as a guiding framework, I examined the interactions among child negative affect, parental positive affect, and resiliency in preschoolers. The study sample consisted of 100, two-parent families and their children (50 boys, 50 girls, 2 – 5 years old, mean age =...

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...
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...
Identification of differentially expressed genes in sexed pig embryos during post-hatching development in primiparous sows exposed to differing intermittent suckling and breeding strategiesDownload
The aim of commercial pig breeding programs is to maximize the number of pigs produced per sow per year. Given that sows exhibit an estrus during lactation is a potential means of increasing productivity of a pig breeding herd without reducing in lactation length, conventionally, weaning of...
The Development and Use of Self-Compassion to Cope with Adversity in Sport in Female Varsity AthletesDownload
Self-compassion is an emotion regulation strategy that encourages the practice of mindfulness, common humanity, and self-kindness. It involves understanding adverse experiences using a broader perspective, seeking connections with others, and directing kindness towards the self (Neff, 2003a) and...
Feeding a diet enriched in docosahexaenoic acid to lactating dams improves the tolerance response to egg protein in suckled pupsDownload
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of feeding a maternal diet supplemented with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) during the suckling period on the development of the immune system and oral tolerance (OT) in offspring. Dams were randomized to consume one of two nutritionally...
