2024 Celebration of Student Scholarship - Poster Presentations

Most people have heard the phrase "A healthy child is a happy child" but what about the phrase "A healthy brain is a well-integrated brain"? Sensory processing or integration is how our brain reads sensory input from outside stimuli in our environ1nent. Our cerebellar white matter, located in the brain, determines the efficiency of sensory integration. It has been found that brain composition presenting lower microstructural integrity of the superior and middle cerebellar peduncles have a sensory processing disorder (Narayan, 2021). Sensory Over-Responsivity (SOR) 1s a specific type of sensory disorder. Since Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and SOR typically coexist, …

2024 Celebration of Student Scholarship - Poster Presentations

Questions are surrounding the accuracy of the reported levels of nicotine contained in e-liquids. Many of the studies show significant inconsistencies in the amount of nicotine reported on e-liquid products and the amount detected in the e-liquids. The current methods rely on preparing e-liquids for analysis by performing dilutions based on volume, but due to the viscosity of the liquids this preparation technique is prone to method errors. This project aims to compare the nicotine content in samples prepared by volume to those prepared by mass. This was done by first measuring the densities of several e-liquids. Those densities were …

Acid rain has been an ongoing issue in the world since developed countries began producing emissions on a large scale. Acid rain is defined as having an average pH of 4.2-4.4, while "clean" rain is defined by the EPA as having a pH of 5.6 (Figure 1). Locations that have a history of lower pH of precipitation are places that also have higher emissions-cities with high incidence of industry, factories, mines, cattle farms, etc. As much as 70% of emissions are caused by burning fossil fuels.

Potential Of Topical Applications In Managing Navicular Disease: A Review And Exploration, Elena Verdecchia, Smita Joshi

2024 Celebration of Student Scholarship - Poster Presentations

Equine navicular disease is the chronic degradation of the navicular bone and surrounding tissues in the hoof (Tucker , 2022). Bone naturally degrades and regenerates itself at the same rate but horses with navicular disease have their navicular bone degrade at a faster rate than the body can regenerate it (Purica, 2020).

Symptoms As the navicular bone begins to disappear all aspects of the hoof are negatively impacted causing pain to radiate from the bone. The pain caused by navicular disease is the most common cause of forelimb lameness in horses.

Who is Affected? Although all horses can develop navicular …
