Using evolutionary artificial neural networks to design hierarchical animat nervous systems. (2001)
Thesis
MCMINN, D. 2001. Using evolutionary artificial neural networks to design hierarchical animat nervous systems. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The research presented in this thesis examines the area of control systems for robots or animats (animal-like robots). Existing systems have problems in that they require a great deal of manual design or are limited to performing jobs of a single typ...

Nursing perspectives on women, health and work in the socio-cultural context of poor communities in Northeast Thailand. (2001)
Thesis
JONGUDOMKARN, D. 2001. Nursing perspectives on women, health and work in the socio-cultural context of poor communities in Northeast Thailand. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Women from poor communities in Northeast Thailand can be considered as a disadvantaged group who have struggled against several problems in their daily living and who have worked hard to sustain their lives through unskilled labour. In such a strong... Read More about Nursing perspectives on women, health and work in the socio-cultural context of poor communities in Northeast Thailand..

Digestive metabolism of glucosinolates: a novel approach using urinary markers for estimating the release of glucosinolate breakdown products in the gastro-intestinal tract of mammals. (2001)
Thesis
ROUZAUD, G.C.M. 2001. Digestive metabolism of glucosinolates: a novel approach using urinary markers for estimating the release of glucosinolate breakdown products in the gastro-intestinal tract of mammals. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Glucosinolates have been implicated as a mediator of the cancer-protective properties of cruciferous vegetables. Enzymatic hydrolysis of glucosinolates by plant or microbial myrosinase yields a range of metabolites including beneficial isothiocyanate...
