      Sciolino, Natale Rose (uga, 2014-05)
      Exercise is effective treatment for symptoms of mental disorders such as anxiety and substance abuse. However, the neural mechanisms that support these benefits are only beginning to be identified and dissected. Our ...
    • Galectin-1 binding to LacNAc and 3'-O-substituted LacNAc ligands 

      Ford, Michael Garrett (uga, 2004-05)
      Galectins are a class of carbohydrate binding proteins, initially characterized by their affinity for galactose terminating ligands, that play important roles in cellular adhesion and development. There are considerable ...
    • Games of truth and imagination 

      King, Joshua (uga, 2015-08)
      Using the structure of the game as a guiding metaphor and area of inquiry, the dissertation proposes a model for understanding rhetoric as an oscillating pattern of interpretation called “rhetorical play.” Rhetorical play ...
