Hyperbaric oxygen restores the antioxidant defence mechansim following exercise in patients with intermittent claudication (2001)
Journal Article
Abidia, A., Kuhan, G., Laden, G., Bahia, H., Chetter, I., Greenman, J., & McCollum, P. (2001). Hyperbaric oxygen restores the antioxidant defence mechansim following exercise in patients with intermittent claudication. Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society meeting abstracts, 28(32), 0 - 0

BACKGROUND: Intermittent claudication represents a minor ischaemia reperfusion episode. Exposure to hyperbaric oxygen during such episodes is a concern to many vascular surgeons because of the theoretical risk of generating excess free radicals. We a... Read More

Samples were collected from six pools in order to examine the distribution, body length, base colour and phenotypic diversity (chromatophore pattern) of Idotea granulosa populations on five different species of algae (Ceramium, Corallina, Chondrus, F... Read More

Control states and complete agent architectures (2001)
Journal Article
Davis, D. N. (2001). Control states and complete agent architectures. Computational Intelligence, 17(4), (621-650). doi:10.1111/0824-7935.00167. ISSN 0824-7935

This paper presents a developing concept of mind defined in terms of external and internal niches. This perspective on mind is described primarily in terms of the niche space of control states and the design space of processes that may support such p... Read More

Women's reproductive lives as a symbolic resource in Central and Eastern Europe (2001)
Journal Article
Hockey, J., & Alsop, R. (2001). Women's reproductive lives as a symbolic resource in Central and Eastern Europe. European Journal of Women's Studies, 8(4), 454-471. doi:10.1177/135050680100800404

When Communism collapsed in Central and Eastern Europe women seemed to lose the control they had gained over their reproductive lives. Abortion rights became more limited as did access to childcare and maternity benefits. The authors argue that this... Read More

The possibility of using inverse scattering for reverse time modeling of thermal diffusion problems using the transmission line matrix is discussed. Consideration is given to network parameterization via a series of numerical experiments. A three-dim... Read More

Outpatient hand held manometry: comparison of techniques (2001)
Journal Article
Bollard, R. C., Gardiner, A., & Duthie, G. S. (2001). Outpatient hand held manometry: comparison of techniques. Colorectal Disease, 3(1), 13-16. doi:10.1046/j.1463-1318.2001.00219.x

Objective. Anorectal manometry is an established important investigation in a number of disorders. The specialist ano-rectal laboratory is not always available, and a hand held manometer may be a useful tool in the outpatient setting to avoid an unne... Read More

Monte Carlo simulation scheme for dendrimers satisfying detailed balance (2001)
Journal Article
Wallace, E. J., Buzza, D. M., & Read, D. J. (2001). Monte Carlo simulation scheme for dendrimers satisfying detailed balance. Macromolecules, 34(20), 7140-7146. doi:10.1021/ma0104130

A lattice Monte Carlo scheme for simulating dendrimers that is widely referenced in the literature is that of Mansfield and Klushin (Macromolecules 1993, 26, 4262). However, we show that this scheme does not obey a detailed balance and propose a modi... Read More
