P2X7 Receptor Regulation of Hippocampal Neural Progenitor Cells

Hannah Caitlin Leeson
Adult hippocampal neurogenesis plays an essential role in the formation and consolidation of new memories, spatial processing and some forms of learning. Identifying the molecular mechanisms that regulate hippocampal neural progenitor cells as they proliferate, differentiate, and are selected for either survival or cell death will provide a fundamental understanding of how this neurogenic niche coordinates these activities. Here, the roles of P2X7 receptors are examined for their influence over neural progenitor cell biology, particularly...

Re-understanding Change: a decolonial pedagogy for empowering people to think from the margins

Monica Yadeun De Antunano
This study seeks to contribute to the unfinished project of decolonisation (Fanon, 2001) by questioning the Eurocentric knowledges we have inherited through Western academic institutions, and that stand as the only pathway for bringing about socio-environmental justice. In this dissertation I argue that the current socio-environmental crisis is, in reality, a crisis of knowledge. The universal way of thinking and understanding the world is a legacy of a global colonial history that started with the...

Addressing the prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities in Australia - PROJECT METHODOLOGY

Pooja Sawrikar
In 2016, a systematic literature review on child sexual abuse and ethnic minority communities was conducted to help address a long-standing gap in knowledge. Ethnic minorities refer to migrants in Western English-dominant multicultural countries (such as Australia, the US, UK, Canada, and New Zealand) who are non-mainstream in race, culture, language, and/or religion – the four main dimensions of ethnicity (O’Hagan, 1999). Four broad themes were explored – community awareness of child sexual abuse, culturally...

Resources for Optical Quantum Information Science and Technology

Sabine Wollmann
Quantum information science explores the foundational aspects of quantum mechanics and its ombination with information science for new information technologies. The underlying key resource is non-classical correlations. These counter-intuitive correlations between quantum systems can be used for encoding, transmitting and measuring information in quantum information tasks. Although quantum properties can be used in a variety of systems, here we explore photons. These information carriers are fast, easy to generate and manipulate and only interact weakly...

Mass and Heat Transfer in Intermetallic-Hydrogen Storage Tanks

Shahrzad Seyed Mohammadshahi
Hydrogen is a potential future energy carrier, but reliable storage of the hydrogen is required for widespread use. Metal-hydrides (MH) are suitable materials for safe, stable and long-term hydrogen storage applications such as off-grid and hybrid solar systems due to the ability to store hydrogen at moderate pressure and temperature. However, poor thermal properties of MH beds coupled with the need for managing the significant amount of heat generated during the absorption and desorption reactions,...
