    • IDENTIFYING CORE CONSCIOUSNESS IN ANIMALS 

      Stevens, Nicholas Stamer (2006-06)
      Proving whether animals are either capable or incapable of feeling (i.e. core consciousness) is a problem that is difficult to address because mental states cannot be directly observed. Many animals exhibit behavior ...
    • A Novel Method for Investigation of Postembryonic Neural Reorganization in the Tobacco Hornworm, Manduca sexta 

      Patterson, Kelly McNamara (2006-06)
      The tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta, provides a model system for examining the reorganization of neural circuits during metamorphosis. The larval tobacco hornworm exhibits a pre-ecdysis behavior which serves to loosen the ...
    • Peripheral Visuospatial Attention: An fMRI Study 

      Dugan, James Patrick (2005-09-30)
      We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to demonstrate the effects of directing sustained attention to near and far peripheral locations ( <12 and >20 degree eccentricities, respectively) on blood oxygen level ...
    • The role of uxs1 in chondrocyte organization, morphogenesis, and signaling pathways during skeletogenesis 

      Smith, Gabriel (2007-07-13)
      The role proteoglycans play in molecular-genetic mechanisms of skeletogenesis is not completely understood. UDP-glucuronic acid decarboxylase 1 (Uxs1) converts UDP-glucuronic acid to UDP-xylose which is used by ...
    • The subtidal Bryozoan fauna off Cape Arago, Oregon 

      Cottrell, Dylan (2013-05)
      The subtidal marine biodiversity off the Oregon coast is poorly studied and not well understood. The few subtidal studies in Oregon have focused on vertebrates with little regard to invertebrate assemblages. Oregon’s ...
    • A TALE OF TWO TRNAS: TRANSLATING THE SAME CODON DOES NOT IMPLY REDUNDANCY 

      Murrill, Elizabeth (University of Oregon, 2004-08)
      A transfer RNA (tRNA) can form codon-anticodon interactions either by standard Watson-Crick base pairing or by forming a wobble base pair between the first position of the anticodon and the third position of the codon. ...
    • Traumatic Brain Injury & Acidosis 

      Force, Lisa (Robert D. Clark Honors College, 2006-11)
      Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a significant cause of death in the United States, and is the leading cause of disability in children and young adults. Acidosis is one of the most frequent secondary brain injuries and is ...
