    1. As part of global efforts to reduce dependence on carbon-based energy sources there has been a rapid increase in the installation of renewable energy devices. The installation and operation of these devices can result ...
  • The awareness of novelty for strangely familiar words : a laboratory analogue of the déjà vu experience 

    Urquhart, Josephine; O'Connor, Akira Robert (2014-11-11) - Journal article
    Déjà vu is a nebulous memory experience defined by a clash between evaluations of familiarity and novelty for the same stimulus. We sought to generate it in the laboratory by pairing a DRM recognition task, which generates ...
  • An axiomatic functionalist analysis of the phonology of Yulu 

    Gabjanda, James Dahab (1976) - Thesis
    This thesis is concerned with the description of Yulu, a language which has not previously been subjected to modern linguistic analysis. Thus this thesis has two important aspects. Firstly, however remote a Language, ...
  • Axonal localization of integrins in the CNS is neuronal type and age dependent 

    Andrews, Melissa Renee; Soleman, Sara; Cheah, Menghon; Tumbarello, David; Mason, Matthew; Moloney, Elizabeth; Verhaagen, Joost; Bensadoun, Jean-Charles; Schneider, Bernard; Aebischer, Patrick; Fawcett, James (2016-07) - Journal article
    The regenerative ability of CNS axons decreases with age however this ability remains largely intact in PNS axons throughout adulthood. These differences are likely to correspond with age-related silencing of proteins ...
  • The Ba-Pb-O system and its potential as a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) cathode material 

    Sharp, Matthew David (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-30) - Thesis
    The Ba-Pb-O system was investigated as a possible cathode material in a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). Metallic oxides with a perovskite structure form a large family that displays a wide variety of properties such as ...
  • "Back from the brink: stories of churches which refused to die" by Heather & Pat Wraight

    Hinnebusch, Raymond (2015-01) - Journal article
    Examines the drivers of the return of Turkey-Syria relations to enmity, specifically the Turkish response to the Syrian Uprising. Looks also at Turkish policy in Syria, notably its support for radical Islamists fighting ...
  • Back to the future : the Arab uprisings and state (re) formation in the Arab world 

    Saouli, Adham (2015) - Journal article
    This article contributes to debates that aim to go beyond the “democratization” and “post-democratization” paradigms to understand change and continuity in Arab politics. In tune with calls to focus on the actualities of ...
  • Backbone tuning in indenylidene-ruthenium complexes bearing an unsaturated N-heterocyclic carbene 

    Urbina-Blanco, Cesar A.; Bantreil, Xavier; Clavier, Herve; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Nolan, Steven P. (2010-11) - Journal article
    The steric and electronic influence of backbone substitution in IMes-based (IMes = 1,3-bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene) N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC) was probed by synthesizing the [RhCl(CO)(2)(NHC)] series ...
