Intertemporal Choice In Lemurs, Jeffrey R. Stevens, Nelly Mühlhoff 2012 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Intertemporal Choice In Lemurs, Jeffrey R. Stevens, Nelly Mühlhoff

Faculty Publications, Department of Psychology

Different species vary in their ability to wait for delayed rewards in intertemporal choice tasks. Models of rate maximization account for part of this variation, but other factors such as social structure and feeding ecology seem to underly some species differences. Though studies have evaluated intertemporal choice in several primate species, including Old World monkeys, New World monkeys, and apes, prosimians have not been tested. This study investigated intertemporal choices in three species of lemur (black-and- white ruffed lemurs, Varecia variegata, red ruffed lemurs, Varecia rubra, and black lemurs, Eulemur macaco) to assess how they compare to other primate species ...

Investigating Motor Training In People Who Stutter Using Fnirs, Kristen Michelle Johnson 2012 James Madison University

Investigating Motor Training In People Who Stutter Using Fnirs, Kristen Michelle Johnson

Masters Theses

This pilot study investigated motor learning and neuroplasticity in persons who do and do not stutter before and after participation in a phonation onset training protocol. Outcomes included phonation onset time and percent change in oxygenation level of hemoglobin using fNIRS in prescribed brain areas as a result of training. The authors hypothesized that people who stutter (PWS) would 1) exhibit a breakdown in auditory perception to motor production interactions, 2) demonstrate a difference in the way in which they perceive and learn motor information compared to someone who does not stutter (nPWS), and 3) exhibit reduced brain activity correlations ...


Gene Mapping Of Monogenic Disorders And Complex Diseases Via Genome Wide Association Studies, Xia Zhao 2012 Iowa State University

Gene Mapping Of Monogenic Disorders And Complex Diseases Via Genome Wide Association Studies, Xia Zhao

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Inherited rickets, lower motor neuron disease and chondrodysplasia were recently reported genetic disorders that had been identified on sheep farms in New Zealand. Animals with rickets showed softening and weakening bone, and were characterized by decreased growth rate, thoracic lordosis and angular limb deformities. Sheep diagnosed with lower motor neuron disease were characterized by poor muscle tone and progressive weakness from about one week of age, leading to severe tetraparesis, recumbency and muscle atrophy. Chondrodysplasia in Texel sheep was characterized by dwarfism and angular deformities of the forelimbs. These three disorders were determined likely simple autosomal recessive by backcross breeding ...


Essays On The Economics Of Disease, With Particular Reference To Livestock, Tong Wang 2012 Iowa State University

Essays On The Economics Of Disease, With Particular Reference To Livestock, Tong Wang

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Optimal design of government policies in private sector livestock disease control is of great importance due to increasing social cost of the disease. This dissertation analyzes and evaluates relevant policy issues with a series of four essays, each emphasizing a different facet of the problem.

While common uncertainty is not uncommon when it comes to livestock industry, it has not been incorporated in the optimal livestock indemnity design. Using a principal multi-agent framework, my first paper suggests that relative performance evaluation (RPE) method is most justified either when high correlation exists between farmers' disease prevalence rate or when the effectiveness ...


Development And Implementation Of Acoustic Feedback Control For Scanning Probe Microscopy, Rodolfo Fernandez Rodriguez 2012 Portland State University

Development And Implementation Of Acoustic Feedback Control For Scanning Probe Microscopy, Rodolfo Fernandez Rodriguez

Dissertations and Theses

A remote-sensing acoustic method for implementing position control feedback in Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) is presented. The capabilities of this feedback control using the new Whispering Gallery Acoustic Sensing (WGAS) method is demonstrated in a Shear-force Scanning Probe Microscope that uses a sharp probe attached to a piezoelectric Quartz Tuning Fork (QTF) firmly mounted on the microscope's frame. As the QTF is electrically driven its mechanical response reaches the SPM frame which then acts as a resonant cavity producing acoustic modes measured with an acoustic sensor strategically placed on the SPM head. The novelty of the WGAS resides in ...


Efficacies Of Fenbendazole And Albendazole In The Treatment Of Commercial Turkeys Artificially Infected With Ascaridia Dissimilis, Jessica Perkins, Tom Yazwinski, Chris Tucker 2012 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Efficacies Of Fenbendazole And Albendazole In The Treatment Of Commercial Turkeys Artificially Infected With Ascaridia Dissimilis, Jessica Perkins, Tom Yazwinski, Chris Tucker

Discovery, The Student Journal of Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences

The goal of this research was to determine the extent of resistance that turkey roundworms, Ascaridia dissimilis, have developed to anti-parasitic chemicals used in commercial poultry operations. Roundworm infections in turkeys have resulted in monetary losses for the poultry industry for years, generally due to poor feed conversion. The infection itself is subclinical and many turkeys have a light to moderate worm burden. Since parasitisms are light, this leads to the infections being noticed only during processing. Ascaridia dissimilis infections consist of adult worms and developing larvae with the latter comprising most of the worm burden and causing the most ...

Objective: To determine whether exposure to repetitive head impacts over a single season negatively affects cognitive performance in collegiate contact sport athletes.

Methods: This is a prospective cohort study at 3 Division I National Collegiate Athletic Association athletic programs. Participants were 214 Division I college varsity football and ice hockey players who wore instrumented helmets that recorded the acceleration-time history of the head following impact, and 45 noncontact sport athletes. All athletes were assessed prior to and shortly after the season with a cognitive screening battery (ImPACT) and a subgroup of athletes also were assessed with 7 measures from a ...


The Toxicity Of Acetaminophen, Caffeine And Carbendazim In Earthworms (Eisenia Fetida), Matthew M. Bulman 2012 Eastern Illinois University

The Toxicity Of Acetaminophen, Caffeine And Carbendazim In Earthworms (Eisenia Fetida), Matthew M. Bulman

Masters Theses

There has been a need for the assessment of ground water contamination risk on terrestrial organisms. One terrestrial organism, Eisenia fetida, was chosen as a test species and exposed to three common pharmaceutical and/or pesticide related contaminants: acetaminophen (CAS#103-90-2), caffeine (CAS#58-08-2) and carbendazim (CAS#10605-21-7), respectively. Levels of contamination varied from grams per liter to micrograms per liter (ppb) using distilled water as the solvent. Eisenia fetida was examined through a 28 day range/index toxicity test. A Benchmark Dose (BMD) dichotomous probit analysis, using a 95% confidence interval, was calculated for all three contaminants. All three ...

From Service Provision To Function Based Performance - Perspectives On Public Health Systems From The Usa And Israel, F. Douglas Scutchfield, Ehud Miron, Richard Ingram

Preventive Medicine and Environmental Health Faculty Publications

If public health agencies are to fulfill their overall mission, they need to have defined measurable targets and should structure services to reach these targets, rather than offer a combination of ill-targeted programs. In order to do this, it is essential that there be a clear definition of what public health should do- a definition that does not ebb and flow based upon the prevailing political winds, but rather is based upon professional standards and measurements.

The establishment of the Essential Public Health Services framework in the U.S.A. was a major move in that direction, and the model ...
