The Role of Hippocampally-synthesized Estradiol in Learning and Memory in Female Mice

The objectives of this study are to better understand the role that hippocampally-synthesized estradiol plays in regulating hippocampal learning and memory. The project will use female mice to...   Details

The Structure of Wild-Type Human Renalase in Complex with Catechols

In 2006 Desir et al., discovered a enzyme that is produced in kidney, brain and heart tissue. This enzyme, named renalase, has the ability to lower blood pressure for sustained periods. In vitro data...   Details

The Theory of Sectoral Clashes Revisited

The recent volatility in oil prices has brought into the limelight the importance of the mineral sector in shaping global economic welfare.This project examines the interactions between economics and...   Details

The Tiger Behavior Analysis Research Labratory

My lab is involved in clinical research related to the assessment and treatment of behavior disorders exhibited by children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These disorders include...   Details

The development of reasoning in early childhood

This project examines the development of generalization: How do children use information they learn in one context (e.g., a classroom) to make broader generalizations? We ask this question by...   Details

The effect of age on force-time curve parameters of isometric grip strength trials

The Force-Time Curve (F-T Curve) Test includes the slopes of force-generation phase and force-decay phase of force-time curve generated when performing a 10-second isometric grip contraction....   Details

The molecular basis of thymoquinone protection against beta-amyloid peptide toxicity

Beta-amyloid (Abeta) is central to Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathogenesis. Thymoquinone (TQ) has been shown to reduce Abeta toxicity in cell culture. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms...   Details

The relative roles of competition and facilitation in structuring plant communities

We are looking for a full-time field assistant, from May to late August, 2011. The research project examines how both competition and facilitation operate in plant communities, and at what point each...   Details

Theory Development for the Optimized Hierarchical Microstructures of Composites

The objective of the proposed research is on the robust evaluation, prediction, and identification of the performance of metallic composites. Specifically, we focus on the structural and mechanical...   Details

Time-resolved spectroscopic studies of nitrite reduction by the enzyme ccNiR

We are interested in the enzymes that some bacteria use to catalyze ammonia-nitrite interconversion, an ecologically important process. In the bacterium S. oneidensis, Nitrite reduction to ammonia...   Details
