    • Single-cell RNA Sequencing Analysis and Experimental Designs to Investigate the Role of Nitric Oxide Signaling in Progenitor Cell Survival in Ciona 

      Gurgis, Alexandra Marie
      The tunicate Ciona is a marine chordate whose biphasic life cycle, relatively simple transcriptome, and ability to be genetically manipulated via electroporation makes it an ideal model for studying phenomena of neurodevelopment ...
    • Single-Job Dynamic Parallelism Scaling through Lock Contention Monitoring 

      Khanwalkar, Mahesh
      Harnessing available parallelism resources is an important but complicated task. Lock contention is one such factor that complicates this task and is of major concern, since locks and locking constructs are used heavily ...
    • Six Feet Apart: Online Payments During the COVID-19 Pandemic 

      Shaikh, Omar
      Since the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have faced unprecedented challenges when trying to remain open. Because COVID-19 spreads through aerosolized droplets, businesses were forced to distance their services; in some ...
    • Size Switching in Multi-agent Formation Control 

      Coogan, Samuel (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-05-12)
      Formation control among a team of mobile robots is a common problem considered in multi-agent research, yet there are still formation control applications in which no control technique exists. In particular, motion planning ...
    • Sleep and Quasi-Periodic Patterns During Rest 

      Karkare, Maya C.
      In this preliminary study, researchers attempted to determine the relationship between sleep and quasi-periodic pattern strength. Three participants wore actigraphy watches for three nights prior to a resting-state functional ...
    • Sleep Disruption in a Mouse Model of Medial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy 

      Rosenberg, Lucie
      While not typically a recognized comorbidity of epilepsy, sleep disorders are common in epilepsy, particularly medial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). However, consistent and severe sleep disruptions have a potentially ...
    • Sleep-based Memory Consolidation and Aging 

      Lee, Claire
      It is a known phenomenon that older adults tend to get less sleep and lower sleep quality compared to their younger counterparts, getting worse with age. They also often have difficulty falling asleep, which can be described ...
    • Small Animal Model of Osteochondritis Dissecans 

      Cobb, Destiny August (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-07-18)
      Juvenile Osteochondritis Dissecans (JOCD) is a joint disorder that predominantly affects athletic children and adolescents. It is characterized by the formation of osteochondral loose bodies which cause pain and swelling ...
    • Smart Shin Guard 

      Mirzazadeh, Ali
      Fatigue assessment is a highly subjective yet important marker for high-performance athletes as they strive to maintain fitness and avoid injuries during the season. Fatigue and overexertion is the leading cause of muscular ...
    • Snow Coverage Prediction using Machine Learning Techniques 

      He, Ziming
      Snow coverage is often predicted through analysis of satellite images. Two of the most common satellites used for predictions are MODIS and Landsat. Unfortunately, snow coverage predictions are limited either by MODIS ...
    • The socio-cultural implications of artificial intelligence through the study of emerging technologies in modern society 

      Rao, Nikita (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-08)
      The purpose of this project to develop an understanding of popular representations of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics by researching the philosophy of AI, science fiction, and the practices of current AI/Robotics ...
    • Sorption of Rare Earth Elements onto Kaolinite 

      Wise, Paige
      Rare earth elements (REEs), defined as yttrium (Y), scandium (Sc), and the 15 lanthanides, have become prominent areas of focus in the geochemistry field. REEs are used in many alternative energy technologies and as ...
    • A sparse coding model of V1 produces surround suppression effects in response to natural scenes 

      Del Giorno, Allie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-08)
      Recent electrophysiology research has made significant advancements toward revealing the neural basis of early visual processing. The brain is optimized to draw conclusions from natural scenes, and models of the human ...
    • Spatial Distribution of Serotonergic Raphespinal Neurons in the Neonatal Mouse Brainstem 

      Bumgardner, Luke
      Descending serotonergic (5-HT) neurons located in the brainstem are known to influence mammalian locomotion. Neonates have poorer locomotor abilities than adults. Theoretically, a lesser contribution from 5-HT descending ...
    • Spatial Variation of Picoplankton Community Structure in the Northern Gulf of Mexico 

      Geddes, Barbara Katelyn (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-08)
      Marine microbes are responsible for over half of global primary productivity; Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus are the most abundant of these microbes, accounting for over a trillion trillion of the single-celled organisms ...
