  • Occupational science: the study of occupation

    Wright-St Clair, VA; Hocking, C (2011-10-16)

    Book item

    This chapter explores how occupational science is informing occupational therapy practice. Firstly the discussion looks at occupational science as a basic science underpinning occupational therapy knowledge, before recent developments in occupational science are show-cased as a way of illustrating its growth as an applied science. Along the way, real world international examples are offered. Each highlights how the ‘science’ of occupational science is guiding evidence-based occupational therapy practice. Each example, in its own way, illustrates occupational science ‘in play’ within the everyday practice worlds of occupational therapists.

  • Data provenance and management in Radio Astronomy: a stream computing approach

    New approaches for data provenance and data management (DPDM) are required for mega science projects like the Square Kilometer Array, characterized by extremely large data volume and intense data rates, therefore demanding innovative and highly efficient computational paradigms. In this context, we explore a stream-computing approach with the emphasis on the use of accelerators. In particular, we make use of a new generation of high performance stream-based parallelization middleware known as InfoSphere Streams. Its viability for managing and ensuring interoperability and integrity of signal processing data pipelines is demonstrated in radio astronomy. IBM InfoSphere Streams embraces the stream-computing paradigm. It is a shift from conventional data mining techniques (involving analysis of existing data from databases) towards real-time analytic processing. We discuss using InfoSphere Streams for effective DPDM in radio astronomy and propose a way in which InfoSphere Streams can be utilized for large antennae arrays. We present a case-study: the InfoSphere Streams implementation of an autocorrelating spectrometer, and using this example we discuss the advantages of the stream-computing approach and the utilization of hardware accelerators.

  • Roles of cardiac stretch-activated channels beyond mechano-electric coupling: stretch-enhanced force generation and muscular dystrophy

    Allen, DG; Ward, Marie-Louise (2011)

    Developed force in cardiac muscle increases in two phases following stretch; a rapid component due to increased overlap of thick and thin filaments coupled to an increase in calcium sensitivity; a slow phase caused by increased calcium-activated force. We have proposed that increased calcium entry through a calcium-permeable stretch-activated channel is responsible for the slow phase. In this chapter we discuss candidate genes that may encode this stretch-activated channel focusing on TRPC1, TRPC6 and TRPV2. While stretch-activated channels were first recognised by their increased activity when stretched in a patch-pipette, this does not appear to be the dominant physiological pathway of activation. Instead complex pathways including integrins, angiotensin, NADPH oxidase and ROS appear to be involved. Stretch-activated channels may also have roles in disease. For instance stretch-activated channels are over-active in skeletal muscle in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and appear to have role in the calcium entry which is a central pathological pathway of this disease. Cardiac muscle is also affected in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and stretch-activated channels may have a role in the dilated cardiomyopathy which develops.

  • Supervision as a Signature Pedagogy in Studio: Some preliminary findings from the Te Ara Kakena project

    Brown, Deidre; Bywater, J; Rakena, TO; Airini (2011)

    The student experience of studio learning at postgraduate levels determines not only the development of graduates with a specialised perspective and skill-set but also the direction of future tertiary research and teaching. Yet this experience has not been adequately captured in tertiary teaching research projects, which are often informed by research assumptions that perpetuate institutionally-ascribed definitions of academic success and have their analytical foundations in ‘lecture-based’ undergraduate teaching research. Postgraduate learning in studio,however, primarily takes place in small groups of less than fifty students where there is much more direct contact with teachers (and their teaching practices) and in physical contexts that do not resemble theatrical learning forums. The Te Ara Kakena:1 Quality Teaching in Postgraduate Studies research project centralises the postgraduate student experience of learning in studio contexts for the purposes of creating teaching interventions that will enhance ‘success,’ according to student definitions of that term.

  • Behaviour of invader ship rats experimentally released behind a pest-proof fence, Maungatautari, New Zealand

    Six ship (roof, black) rats (Rattus rattus) were cage-trapped adjacent to a pest-proof fence and released with radio transmitters inside the 65 ha pest-free exclosure at Maungatautari, North Island, New Zealand, to mimic reinvasion. Unexpectedly, four of the six rats climbed back out of the exclosure and returned to their original home ranges after periods ranging from a few hours to seven days. All six rats travelled along the fence top at some time during follows, and only three of the six used tracking tunnels set on a 50 m grid inside the exclosure to detect invaders. The rats that remained inside the fence stayed within C. 100m of the release point for about three days, then made increasingly large (to 1100m) movements into the reserve. Resultant range lengths greatly exceeded those of four other rats radio-tracked outside the fence where rat density was higher. This behaviour is very similar to that reported for experimentally released house mice (Mus musculus) and Norway rats (R. norvegicus) on islands. These results suggest that a) some invading ship rats may themselves vacate a fenced sanctuary without encountering efforts to detect and remove them; b) rats at low density have much larger movements than occur in home ranges at typically higher mainland densities, and c) managers should target rat invaders with detection and killing devices within 100 m of a fence breach for at least three days, and some traps should be set on top of the fence.
