Investigation into the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying self-regulatory processes in eating behaviours (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-19)Prior research has demonstrated that the integrity of the executive control system is correlated with obesogenic behaviour tendencies in a theoretically meaningful way. However, due to the paucity of experimental evidence ...
Partial Characterization of Yeast Hydrolysates for Insights on Chemically Defined Media for Sf-9 Insect Cells (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-18)Yeast extract, or other varieties of yeast hydrolysate, have been used in combination with a lipid supplement to completely eliminate the need for fetal bovine serum during in vitro cultivations of insect cells. This has ...
(University of Waterloo, 2017-10-18)Quantum field theory is so far the best description of the fundamental laws of Nature, yet it does not fully incorporates gravitation. The first attempt toward unifying the quantum field theory and gravity is a semi-classical ...
Impacts of Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) on the Travel Behavior of its Residents in Shenzhen, China (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-18)Rapid urbanization in cities across the world has generated a number of issues including urban sprawl, segregation of land uses, traffic congestion and negative environmental impacts. Transit-oriented development (TOD) has ...
