    • NAF1 and SHQ1 are involved in early events of box H/ACA RNP biogenesis 

      Roy, Sujayita (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 2009)
      H/ACA ribonucleoproteins are small complexes of four conserved proteins and a small function defining RNA called the H/ACA RNA. Depending on the specific H/ACA RNA (out of the cellular pool of about 150 H/ACA RNAs) that ...
    • Nanoscale Dielectrics 

      Blumenkopf, Joshua (Yeshiva College, 2013-05)
      The concept of a dielectric constant is ill-posed in systems at the nanoscale because the classical definition of a dielectric requires the presence of a very large number of elemental dipole particles. Here we asses ...
    • Narcissistic functioning in a character disordered population 

      Perry, Jonathan Dalton (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1989)
      Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) and narcissistic traits were examined from videotape within 107 subjects with borderline, antisocial, schizotypal and bi-polar type 2 personality. Seven subjects with NPD, and 27 ...
    • Narrative and Rhetoric in Law 

      Nagel, Meira (Stern College for Women, 2016-04)
      Telling stories has been an innate human drive since the beginning—since Adam relayed to Eve that G-d had told him not to eat from the tree of knowledge1 . Walter Fisher, a 20th century philosopher, proposed that all ...
    • Natural and engineered neutralizing antibodies for universal protection against ebolaviruses 

      Wec, Anna Z. (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 2017)
      Ebola virus (EBOV) and related filoviruses are the causative agents of sporadic outbreaks of highly lethal hemorrhagic fever in Middle and West Africa. To date, no Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved therapeutics or ...
    • Near-infrared absorption studies of conformational relaxation and binding kinetics in hemeproteins 

      Huang, Jerry Min-Jian (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1998)
      The near-infrared absorption band at about 760 nm (Band III) in hemeproteins is sensitive to the local heme conformation of equilibrium and nonequilibrium five coordinate ferrous high spin hemes. It is absent in six ...
    • Negotiating the traumatic impact of cancer 

      Bellehsen, Mayer (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 2011)
      It is well established that cancer can precipitate psychological morbidity, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), in patients. Recent research has shown that the impact extends beyond the individual to create ...
    • Neonatal oral behaviors: Their coding and organization 

      Bandman, Faigi R. (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1994)
      A comprehensive system for coding neonatal oral behaviors was developed as part of a larger investigation of neonatal imitation. A review of the literature indicated the need to interpret imitation effects with caution, ...
    • Neonatal responses to tongue protrusion and mouth opening modeling 

      Couturier-Fagan, Debra Ann (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1996)
      In order to investigate neonatal imitation, 83 newborn infants were videotaped while Tongue Protrusion and Mouth Opening were modeled. The infants were exposed to four alternating 20-second demonstration and passive intervals ...
    • Nerve injury and inflammatory cytokines regulate Schwann cell phenotype and function 

      Chandross, Karen Jeanne (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1995)
      Schwann cells subserve important functions in both normal and regenerating peripheral nerve. After nerve injury, coordinated phenotypic changes occur in Schwann cells that assist in regenerative processes. Local cytokine ...
    • Neural cell targets of HIV-1 infection in human fetal organotypic cultures 

      Hatch, William Charles (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1993)
      Children infected by HIV-1 can demonstrate nervous system dysfunction. Because some HIV-1 positive children are believed to be infected during gestation and it is thought that HIV-1 may infect neural cells, the studies ...
    • Neural correlations in the sound localization system of the barn owl and their relevance for coding 

      Beckert, Michael V. (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 2017)
      The neuron is a powerful computational unit. However, neurons do not exist in isolation, rather they are embedded within intricate networks where each neuron is wired to tens of thousands of other neurons. Because of this ...
    • NEURAL TIMING MECHANISMS AND SPEECH PERCEPTION 

      FALDA, EVA LORRAINE (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1980)
      The aim of this thesis is to explore the neuropsychological processes that underlie speech perception. The main contention is that principles of neural timing mechanisms can be directly applied to the perception of speech ...
    • NEURITIC SPECIFICITY IN RETINOTECTAL CO-CULTURES 

      SMALHEISER, NEIL RAYMOND (ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, 1982)
      Explants of fetal mouse retina and superior colliculus (tectum), alone or in co-culture, were characterized with extra-cellular electrophysiologic recordings, light microscopic examination of living culture arrays, and ...
