  • Can bank boards prevent misconduct? 

    Nguyen, Duc Duy; Hagendorff, Jens; Eshraghi, Arman (2016) - Journal article
    We study regulatory enforcement actions issued against US banks to show that both board monitoring and advising are effective in preventing misconduct by banks. While better monitoring by boards prevents all categories of ...
  • Can dietary intake influence perception of and measured appearance? A systematic review : dietary intake and appearance 

    Pezdirc, Kristine; Hutchesson, Melinda; Whitehead, Ross David; Ozakinci, Gozde; Perrett, David Ian; Collins, Clare (2015-03) - Journal item
    Appearance-based interventions have had some success in reducing smoking and sun exposure. Appearance may also motivate dietary behavior change if it was established that dietary improvement had a positive impact on ...
  • Can exosomes be used as drug delivery vesicles? 

    Cooke, Fiona Ghina Mary (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-29) - Thesis
    The inflammatory arthritis Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is linked to the human leucocyte antigen HLA-B27. HLA-B27 is thought to drive AS because it misfolds during assembly in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), inducing ER ...
  • Can fear conditioning repel California sea lions from fishing activities? 

    Schakner, Zachary A.; Götz, Thomas; Janik, Vincent M.; Blumstein, Daniel T. (2017-10) - Journal article
    Marine mammal interactions with fisheries create conflicts that can threaten human safety, economic interests and marine mammal survival. A deterrent that capitalizes on learning mechanisms, like fear conditioning, may ...
  • Can females choose to avoid mating failure in the seed bug Lygaeus simulans? 

    Greenway, E. V. (Ginny); Balfour, Vicki L.; Shuker, David M. (2017-07) - Journal article
    It is becoming increasingly clear that copulation does not necessarily always lead to offspring production in many organisms, despite fertilization success presumably being under both strong natural and sexual selection. ...
  • Can human experts predict solubility better than computers? 

    Boobier, Samuel; Osbourn, Anne; Mitchell, John B. O. (2017-12-13) - Journal article
    In this study, we design and carry out a survey, asking human experts to predict the aqueous solubility of druglike organic compounds. We investigate whether these experts, drawn largely from the pharmaceutical industry ...
  • Can macrophyte harvesting from eutrophic water close the loop on nutrient loss from agricultural land? 

    Quilliam, R.S.; van Niekerk, M.A.; Chadwick, D.R.; Cross, P.; Hanley, N.; Jones, D.L.; Vinten, A.J.A.; Willby, N.; Oliver, D.M. (2015-04-01) - Journal article
    Eutrophication is a major water pollution issue and can lead to excessive growth of aquatic plant biomass (APB). However, the assimilation of nutrients into APB provides a significant target for their recovery and reuse, ...
  • Can methods applied in medicine be used to summarize and disseminate conservation research? 

    Fazey, Ioan Raymond Albert; Salisbury, J G; Lindenmayer, D B; Maindonald, J; Douglas, R (2004-09) - Journal article
    To ensure that the best scientific evidence is available to guide conservation action, effective mechanisms for communicating the results of research are necessary. In medicine, an evidence-based approach assists doctors ...
  • Can people experience posttraumatic growth after committing violent acts? 

    Blackie, Laura E R; Roepke, Ann Marie; Hitchcott, Nicki; Joseph, Stephen (2016-11) - Journal article
    The concept of post-traumatic growth refers to the positive psychological changes that some people experience as a result of their struggle with highly stressful and often traumatic circumstances. Research into post-traumatic ...
  • Can planet formation resolve the dust budget crisis in high-redshift galaxies? 

    Forgan, D. H.; Rowlands, K.; Gomez, H. L.; Gomez, E. L.; Schofield, S. P.; Dunne, L.; Maddox, S. (2017-12) - Journal article
    The process of planet formation offers a rich source of dust production via grain growth in protostellar discs, and via grinding of larger bodies in debris disc systems. Chemical evolution models, designed to follow the ...
  • Can Punishment Bring Peace? Penal Substitution Revisited 

    Holmes, Stephen Ralph (2005-02) - Journal article
  • Can quantum gas microscopes directly image exotic glassy phases? 

    Thomson, Steven John; Walker, Liam S.; Harte, Tiffany L.; Bruce, Graham David (2016-08-30) - Conference poster
    With the advent of spatially resolved fluorescence imaging in quantum gas microscopes (see e.g. [1]), it is now possible to directly image glassy phases and probe the local effects of disorder in a highly controllable ...
  • Can reassurance hurt? 

    Zhou, Yuefang; Humphris, Gerald Michael (2014-11) - Journal article
    Can you remember how many times your dentist has reassured you, for example, during an anaesthetic injection? Do you suspect that the phrase from the dentist ‘It won’t hurt’ only serves as a warning that it is going to be ...
  • Can substorm particle acceleration be applied to solar flares? 

    Birn, Joachim; Battaglia, Marina; Fletcher, Lyndsay; Hesse, Michael; Neukirch, Thomas (2017-10-20) - Journal article
    Using test particle studies in the electromagnetic fields of three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of magnetic reconnection, we study the energization of charged particles in the context of the standard ...
