Effect of gender on P-wave dispersion in asymptomatic populations (2013)
Journal Article
Garrett, A., & Faulkner, A. (2013). Effect of gender on P-wave dispersion in asymptomatic populations. International sportmed journal for FIMS ISMJ, 14(4), 236-244

Background: Exercise testing is a diagnostic tool for evaluating the induction of stress-induced paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). Resting P-wave dispersion has been suggested to be greater in males versus females but if used by clinicians, gende... Read More

A preliminary evaluation of the effects of opioids on innate and adaptive human in vitro immune function (2013)
Journal Article
Graham Pockley, A., Foulds, G. A., Ahmedzai, S. H., & Boland, J. W. (2014). A preliminary evaluation of the effects of opioids on innate and adaptive human in vitro immune function. BMJ supportive & palliative care, 4(4), (357-367). doi:10.1136/bmjspcare-2013-000573. ISSN 2045-435X

Background: Studies have demonstrated that whereas some opioids have little effect on immunity (eg, buprenorphine), others can be immunosuppressive (eg, morphine) or immunostimulatory (eg, tramadol). However, a variety of approaches have been used, e... Read More

Facial emotion modulates the neural mechanisms responsible for short interval time perception (2013)
Journal Article
Tipples, J., Brattan, V., & Johnston, P. (2015). Facial emotion modulates the neural mechanisms responsible for short interval time perception. Brain topography, 28(1), 104-112. doi:10.1007/s10548-013-0350-6

Emotionally arousing events can distort our sense of time. We used mixed block/event-related fMRI design to establish the neural basis for this effect. Nineteen participants were asked to judge whether angry, happy and neutral facial expressions that... Read More

Market reforms and commodity price volatility: the case of East African Coffee Market (2013)
Journal Article
Lukanima, B., & Swaray, R. (2014). Market reforms and commodity price volatility: the case of East African Coffee Market. The World economy, 37(8), 1152-1185. doi:10.1111/twec.12124

The goal of this paper is to examine the impact of commodity market reforms on producer price volatility using evidence from the East African coffee market. The results, based on time-varying volatility models and key summary statistics, show that co... Read More

© 2013, Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation. Following widespread deterioration of coastal ecosystems since the 1960s, current environmental policies demand ecosystem recovery and restoration. However, vague definitions of recovery and untested... Read More

Expanding the understanding of local community assembly in adaptive radiations (2013)
Journal Article
Wollenberg, K. C., Veith, M., & Lötters, S. (2014). Expanding the understanding of local community assembly in adaptive radiations. Ecology and Evolution, 4(2), 174-185. doi:10.1002/ece3.908

Communities are thought to be assembled by two types of filters: by the environment relating to the fundamental niche and by biotic interactions relating to the realized niche. Both filters include parameters related to functional traits and their va... Read More

Origin and genetic diversity of diploid parthenogenetic Artemia in Eurasia (2013)
Journal Article
