  • 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

  • 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 ...

    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 to enmity : Turkey-Syria relations since the Syrian Uprising 

    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 ...
  • The background and development of 'Evangelical Catholicism' and its expression in the ministry of William Augustus Muhlenberg 

    Cooper, Francis Marion (University of St Andrews, 1981) - Thesis
    William Augustus Muhlenberg (1796-1877) is considered by many historians of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America to have been its most significant leader of the nineteenth century. During the course of ...
  • Backward wave cyclotron-maser emission in the auroral magnetosphere 

    Speirs, D. C.; Bingham, R.; Cairns, R. A.; Vorgul, I.; Kellett, B. J.; Phelps, A. D. R.; Ronald, K. (2014-10-07) - Journal article
    In this Letter, we present theory and particle-in-cell simulations describing cyclotron radio emission from Earth's auroral region and similar phenomena in other astrophysical environments. In particular, we find that the ...
  • Bacterial polysaccharide synthesis and export 

    Woodward, Laura Suzanne; Naismith, James H. (2016-10) - Journal article
    All domains of life make carbohydrate polymers and by anchoring them to lipid molecules they can decorate the outside of the cell. Polysaccharides are linked to proteins by glycosylation, a process found in both bacteria ...
  • Balance, gravity waves and jets in turbulent shallow water flows 

    Shipton, Jemma (University of St Andrews, 2009) - Thesis

  • A balanced approach to modelling rotating stably stratified geophysical flows 

    Dritschel, David Gerard; Viúdez, Alvaro (2003-08-10) - Journal article
    We describe a new approach to modelling three-dimensional rotating stratified flows under the Boussinesq approximation. This approach is based on the explicit conservation of potential vorticity, and exploits the underlying ...
  • Balanced solutions for an ellipsoidal vortex in a rotating stratified flow 

    Mckiver, William J.; Dritschel, David G. (2016-09) - Journal article
