Decision making is a hallmark of intelligence and a basic building block for cognition that is essential to almost all our mental activities. Consequently, its disruption is central to the cognitive impairments associated with a wide variety of brain disorders. Hence, delineating the key neural...
Glacier mass change is an important indicator of climate change, though long-term, spatially-distributed observations of glacier mass changes are relatively scarce. Historic DEMs based on topographic maps in regions such as Alaska have large errors, especially in the accumulation areas of...
Hydrogen fuelled vehicles are being deployed as a part of the deep decarbonisation strategy. Hydrogen fuelled cars are expected to provide the same level of experience and comfort as fossil fuel vehicles including driving range of at least 400-500 km, which requires 4-5 kg of hydrogen onboard of...
The inherently safer fuelling of a hydrogen storage container is a challenging problem. Independent on a container design, materials used, its volume, initial and nominal working pressure (NWP), temperature of delivering hydrogen, the regulation and standards require that the temperature inside...
Compressed gases energy storage technologies are widely used in different areas of our life. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG), Compressed Gaseous Hydrogen (CGH2) vehicles and buses are hitting the roads, hydrogen trains and ships are at demonstration phase. The number...
Pressure and thermal effects from large-scale deflagrations can be extremely hazardous due to the transition of initially laminar premixed combustion to the fast deflagration and finally through deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT) to detonation. The role of various flame front...
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an incertin hormone secreted postprandially from intestinal L-cells with established actions to increase glucose-dependent insulin secretion and reduce appetite [Irwin & Flatt 2015]. Similarly, neurotensin (NT), is a 13 amino acid neuropeptide secreted by...
Overview In REF 2014 the Irish and Celtic Studies Research Institute was assessed as having: 100% outstanding or very considerable impact in research 66% of overall research world-leading or internationally excellent 90% of research environment internationally excellent or world-leading The...
Overview Linguistics at Ulster University has a strong research focus and a lively research atmosphere. PhD Researchers are valued members of the research community and rapidly become part of an active research group. They take part in regular staff-student seminars where current research is...
Overview Research at Ulster in subjects related to performing arts, creative technologies, museum and heritage studies and associated cultural contexts is combined within this unit. PhD research can be pursued in the following individual subject areas: Cinematic Arts (film/moving image practice...
