The administration of methamphetamine (METH) to experimental animals results in damage to nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. We have demonstrated previously that the excitatory amino acids may be involved in this neurotoxicity. For example, several compounds which bind to the phenyclidine site within the ion channel linked to the N-methyl-D-aspartate(More)
Concern regarding the occurrence of chemicals that disrupt endocrine system functions in aquatic species has heightened over the last 15 years. However, little attention has been given to monitoring for estrogenic endocrine disrupting chemicals (EEDCs) in California's freshwater ecosystems. The objective was to screen surface water samples for estrogenic(More)
AIMS To determine if a job exposure matrix (JEM) could be developed using the California Department of Pesticide Regulation Pesticide Usage Database in conjunction with crop, time, and county specific self reported work history and to determine if this was a feasible method to obtain exposure estimates to triazine herbicides. METHODS Agricultural work(More)
Increased globalisation and competition are drivers for process analytical technologies (PAT) that enable seamless process control, greater flexibility and cost efficiency in the process industries. This research is carried out in collaboration with a project which aims to introduce an integrated process control approach, embedding novel sensors for(More)
The intention of this research is to establish a relationship between dairy cattle diseases with various non-invasive sensors for the development of a health monitoring system. This paper expands on the conference paper titled " Sensor technology for animal health monitoring " published in the International Journal on Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems(More)
Increased globalisation and competition are drivers for process analytical technologies (PAT) that enable seamless process control, greater flexibility and cost efficiency in the process industries. The paper will discuss process modelling and control for industrial applications with an emphasis on solutions enabling the real-time data analytics of sensor(More)
The human auditory system perceives sound in a much different manner than how sound is measured by modern audio sensing systems. The most commonly referenced aspects of auditory perception are loudness and pitch, which are related to the objective measures of audio signal frequency and sound pressure level. Here we describe an efficient and accurate method(More)
