    • Humans use a unique mechanism to stabilize the head during running 

      Lieberman, Daniel; Bramble, Dennis M.; Raichlen, David A. (Oxford University Press, 2006)
      Mammals must stabilize the head during running to keep angular accelerations of head within the operating range of the vestibulo-ocular (VOR) reflexes. However, several unique aspects of the human body plan and locomotor ...

    • Humor as Epiphanic Awareness and Attempted Self-Transcendence 

      Shonkwiler, Curt (2015-02-03)
      The starting premise of this dissertation is that the formal techniques of comedy make the comic novel a distinct form within the category of the novel, not just in terms of content, the way one novelistic genre is distinct ...
    • Humoral Immune Pressure Selects for HIV-1 CXC-chemokine Receptor 4-using Variants

      Although both C-C chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5)- and CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4)-using HIV-1 strains cause AIDS, the emergence of CXCR4-utilizing variants is associated with an accelerated decline in CD4 + T cells. It ...
    • Humphrey Dyson and his collections of Elizabethan proclamations

    • Hunger in America: A History of Public and Private Responses 

      Ellison, Jon (2004)
      This paper surveys the variety of public and private hunger relief programs in America, reviewing the history of these programs in order to enable an informed analysis of their effectiveness in fighting domestic hunger.
    • Hunger in Conflict: A Quantitative Analysis of the Effects of Armed Conflict on Food Security in West Africa and Afghanistan 

      Cook-Pellegrin, Kathryn Ream (2022-09-21)
      Half of the world’s undernourished population lives in a country experiencing armed conflict or violence (FAO, 2021). As the main driver of food insecurity, conflict has pushed some 99.1 million people into acute food ...
    • Hunting for Happiness: Aristotle and the Good of Action 

      Tontiplaphol, Don (2014-02-25)
      The starting point of the dissertation is a special kind of intentional action -- Aristotelian praxis, or, in a more metaphysical register, energeia -- a kind whose agent's intention in acting must be expressible as the ...
    • Hunting Galaxies to (and for) Extinction 

      Foster, Jonathan B.; Roman-Zuniga, Carlos G.; Goodman, Alyssa A.; Lada, Elizabeth A.; Alves, Joao (American Astronomical Society, 2008)

    • Huntingtin Facilitates Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 

      Woda, Juliana M.; Song, Ji-Joon; Lloret, Alejandro; Abeyrathne, Priyanka D.; Gregory, Gillian; Lee, Jong-Min; Conlon, Ronald A.; Seong, Ihn Sik; Woo, Caroline; Wheeler, Vanessa Chantal; Walz, Thomas; Kingston, Robert Edward; Gusella, James Francis; MacDonald, Marcy Elizabeth (Oxford University Press, 2009)
