Gamma (gamma)-aminobutyric acid (GABA) acting via GABAA receptors is the brain's major inhibitory neurotransmitter system and exerts a crucial role in regulating brain excitability. A number of drugs interact with binding sites on GABAA receptors, and these include benzodiazepines, anticonvulsants, anaesthetics and neurosteroids (e.g. the progesterone(More)
This paper presents a learner-centered model for designing e-learning assignments/activities within e-learning environments. The model is based on constructivism learning theory. The model includes two categories-the learning design elements (comprised of fundamental design elements and collaborative elements) and the learning assessment elements(More)
BACKGROUND Blood pressure (BP) is a heritable trait of major public health concern. The WNK1 and WNK4 genes, which encode proteins in the WNK family of serine-threonine kinases, are involved in renal electrolyte homeostasis. Mutations in the WNK1 and WNK4 genes cause a rare monogenic hypertensive syndrome, pseudohypoaldosteronism type II. We investigated(More)
An oestrogen sensitive rat mammary tumour was grown in two groups of female and one group of male hooded rats. The male group and one of the female groups were supplemented with oestrogen. The tumours grew most rapidly in the female supplemented group. When the tumours reached 1.5 cm in diameter they were harvested and the cell cycle distribution and number(More)
An in vivo 31P NMR spectrum was obtained from each of four human breast tumours. The phosphomonoester and phosphodiester region of each spectrum consisted of a broad peak. Chemical extracts from samples of each of the tumours obtained at resection were examined on a high field strength NMR system. The phosphomonoester region in the spectrum from each(More)
Executive Summary This paper attempts to present a model for designing an IT undergraduate program that is based on the recommendations of the Association for Computer Machinery/ Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – Information Technology (ACM/IEEE – IT) Curriculum Model. The main intent is to use the ACM/IEEE – IT Curriculum Model's(More)
Ultra-wideband (UWB) systems that radiate very high-level transient waveforms and exhibit operating bandwidths of over two decades are now i n demand for a number of applications. Such systems are known to radiate impulse-like waveforms with risetimes around 100 picoseconds (ps) and peak electric field values of 10s of kV/m. Such waveforms, if properly(More)

Biochar's high porosity and negative surface charge allows for numerous soil and plant benefits such as increased water retention, high nutrient availability, and plant growth. By analysing biochar's effect of all of these factors, a system can be put in place in which soils can be remediated with the proper soil amendments. This report discusses and tests(More)
ii This page intentionally left blank. iii Foreword Following the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, federal, state, and municipal health and environmental agencies initiated numerous studies to assess environmental conditions in the area. A multi-agency task force was specifically formed to evaluate indoor environments for the(More)
