The Effect Of Exercise, Diet Restriction And Aging On The Pituitary-Adrenal Axis In The Rat, Madeline Dellwo

Doctoral Dissertations

The effects of calorie restriction and exercise on feed consumption, growth, and the pituitary-adrenal axis were studied in aging male Wistar rats. The study consisted of 4 experimental groups: Sedentary, ad libitum fed controls (A); Sedentary, diet restricted by feeding on alternate days (R); Exercised by swimming on alternate days, ad libitum fed (AE); Exercised by swimming on alternate days, diet restricted by feeding on alternate days (RE).

Training effect was verified by heart weight:body weight ratio. Exercise resulted in a significantly lower body weight, in spite of the fact that exercised animals ate more than the sedentary animals ...

Impacts On Socialization Of Student Teachers: An Ethnographic Study , Kathryn Rae Petersen Jan 1989

Impacts On Socialization Of Student Teachers: An Ethnographic Study , Kathryn Rae Petersen

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Student teaching has been cited as a valuable component in teacher preparation but research conflicts on specific socializing influences. Some researchers argue that student teachers are predominantly socialized through prior life experiences and others argue that student teachers passively accept the norms of the institution. These two arguments suggest that socialization is unidirectional. Current socialization researchers argue that socialization occurs through an interaction effect. The purpose of this study is to describe the process through which student teachers selectively acquire the attitudes, values, beliefs, skills, and knowledge that are current in the teaching profession;The study setting is eight placement ...

The Transition From Natural Madder To Synthetic Alizarine In The American Textile Industry, 1870-1890 , Judith Lopez

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In the 19th century, synthetic dyestuffs replaced natural materials that had been used for thousands of years. This research examined the transition of one dyestuff, madder, found in plant roots, to its synthetic counterpart, alizarine, discovered in 1868. Records of ten American dye or print works were located in five museums, libraries, and historic associations in Delaware, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Dye inventories, color superintendent journals, swatch books, payroll records, and company correspondence of 1870 to 1890 were investigated to analyze the transition. Variables including economic factors and chemical technologies were explored to ascertain when, and possibly why, the transition ...

A Hypermedia Lesson About 1875-1885 Costume: Cognitive Style, Perceptual Modes, Anxiety, Attitude, And Achievement , Diane Kay Frey

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Cognitive theory focuses attention on mental processes involved in learning. Cognitive theory is based on the view that the human mind interprets information and the individual is central to the learning process. There are individual differences in the ways that information is initially received into the brain. One of the problems associated with the teaching-learning process is determining how learners acquire, store, and recall information;The purpose of this study was to profile students' cognitive styles and to determine relationships among variables that may be associated with how students progress through a computer and videodisc lesson. The lesson is about ...

Evaluation Of The Utilization Of The Home Economics Base Curriculum In The West Virginia Middle School, Lana J. Hardy Jan 1989

Evaluation Of The Utilization Of The Home Economics Base Curriculum In The West Virginia Middle School, Lana J. Hardy

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

The junior high school was created in the early 1900's from the eight year elementary or grammar school and a four year high school. At that time administrators and teachers believed that the needs of the middle year students were being overlooked (Jackson, 1986). The current concept of middle schools began developing in the late 1950's and was being implemented in 1963 (Kindred, Wolotkiewicz, Mickelson, & Coplein, 1981). This reorganization of the middle/junior high school started in West Virginia in the late 1970's. Home economics educators in the state wanted to provide input into the content of ...
