329 Gilbert, JohnA novel tool to capture neural activity across an entire brain using C-FOS as an indicatorImmunohistochemical staining for the expression of the immediate early gene c-Fos is a powerful tool to measure neuronal activation of neurons across an entire brain. The results of c-Fos immunostaining are often quantified by counting the number of immunolabeled cells in a region of interest (ROI) ...Brain - Localization of functions - Research; Brain - Physiology - Research; Brain mapping - Research; Memory - Research; Mice as laboratory animals - Research; Brain activity; Immunohistochemical staining2016-05
330 Gardner, KellyIndividual differences in inhibition and emotionThe objective of this study was to examine if negative emotion can play an influential role on inhibition through attentional control. Higher levels of working memory capacity (WMC) have been correlated with faster inhibition times attributed to greater tolerance of automatic processes and better...Emotion2014-12
331 Gajiwala, SnehalDetermining the variability of depressive brain circuitry among healthy subjects for deep brain stimulationDeep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is being evaluated to treat Treatment-Resistant Depression, though it has shown mixed results. We believe that variability within the fiber tracts of the brain may account for these outcome differences. In this study, we attempt to characterize this potential variation....Brain stimulation - Therapeutic use - Research; Depression, Mental - Treatment - Research; Deep brain stimulation; Depressive brain circuitry; Fiber tracts; Tractography2016-05
332 Green, AustinMeasuring occupancy and occurrence of medium and large mammals in Red Butte Canyon Research Natural Area using motion-activated camera trapsWith expanding urbanization and development, human encroachment on wilderness areas continues to increase.

333 Goller, NicholasIterative game development: What goes into making an effective game and the lessons learned from making two gamesImagine you are told you have two semesters to make a game. You have a team of over ten people ready to help out. You even have the basic idea of what the game will be about. How hard can it be? Well, it is not that hard to make "a game" in two semesters. A competent coder can hack together a game...Computer games - Design2016-04
334 Greenwood, RileyChanges in earnings distribution in Peru: 2004-2014This thesis explores the changes in earnings distribution among heads of household in Peru from 2004 to 2014 by applying Dinardo, Fortin, and Lemieux's methodology of counterfactual distributions and decompositions. Various measures indicate that earnings inequality among heads of household reduce...Wages - Peru2014-12
335 Greenberg, KevinThe effect the duration and location of rest breaks have on sustained attention and reaction timeHumans general system of sustained attention is susceptible to fatigue. The Attention Restoration Theory postulates when the system is fatigued exposure to natural environments may help to restore the fatigued resources. However, the duration and location of exposure needed is unknown, therefore the...Rest periods; Hours of labor2016-04
