Investigation into the Learning Assistant Experience and Related Considerations for Learning Assistant Model Implementation
Classroom dynamics that incorporate undergraduates have existed for decades and have proven beneficial in increasing students’ retention and overall class grades. In 2003, the University of Colorado, Boulder, created the ...
The Proposed Importance of Chemosensation in Mating in Aedes Species
Currently, mosquito-borne diseases are affecting billions of people worldwide and disproportionally burden the developing world. Despite control efforts, these diseases remain widespread. Studying chemosensation and mating ...
Effect of Oncomodulin on Afferent Inner Hair Cell and Efferent Outer Hair Cell Synaptopathy
Inner hair cells (IHCs) are a type of specialized sensory cell which converts the pressure gradient of the endolymph into an interpretable signal, allowing for hearing. However, there is another type of sensory cell crucial ...
Chemosensory receptor annotation and characterization in Aedes albopictus
Chemoreception in insects is modulated by receptors expressed in sensory neurons that detect chemical cues in the environment, allowing insects to make sense of the world around them. The chemosensory machinery of the Asian ...
Testing the Monitoring Capability of ATP Bioluminescence
Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) have been one of the most serious complications of healthcare in recent years, causing upwards of 98,000 deaths per year. Hospitals have started using immediate feedback instruments like ...
Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress and Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
Hearing loss is influenced by many environmental factors, and it greatly affects the quality of life. A specific sensorineural form of hearing loss is noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Excessive noise exposure causes ...
