  • Citing the Institutional Repository 

    Angelo, Anton F; Walsh, Lucy-Jane; Thomson, Christoper (2016)
    We found over 1000 unique items in New Zealand Institutional Repositories gIRs) cited almost 2000 times in articles indexed by SCOPUS. Theses and grey materials are becoming mainstream scholarly communication.
  • Non-metallic ultrasound probe holder for co-collection and co-registration with EMA 

    Derrick, D.; Best, C.T.; Fiasson, R. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
    Co-collection and co-registration of ultrasound images of the tongue and articulometry data requires the stabilization of the ultrasound probe relative to the head using a non-metallic system. Audio, ultrasound, and ...
  • Perceived object continuity and spontaneous retrieval of features from an inhibited object 

    Chen, Z.; Yeh, Y-Y (University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2013)
    Previous research has shown that attention to an object can trigger the retrieval of features of a preceding object. The present study investigates whether such retrieval would occur to a recently inhibited object. In ...
  • Collaborative Governance and Accountability 

    Jenkins, B.R. (University of Canterbury. Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management, 2014)
  • A history of the environmental impact of NZ’s only mainland base: Vanda Station 

    Webster-Brown, J.G.; Hawes, I. (University of Canterbury. Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management, 2015)
    Vanda Station was built beside Lake Vanda in the Wright Valley, Victoria Land in 1968. It was occupied every summer field season, and occasionally over winter. In 1993 it was removed when the rising level of Lake Vanda ...
  • The influence of tongue position on trombone sound: A likely area of language influence 

    Heyne, M.; Derrick, D. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
    This paper builds on initial evidence of First Language influence on brass playing presented in Heyne and Derrick (2013) [13] by indicating how tongue positioning might affect trombone timbre. Ultrasound imaging ...
  • Examining speech production using masked priming 

    Davis, C.; Shaw, J.; Proctor, M.; Derrick, D.; Sherwood, S.; Kim, J. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)
    The time to initiate naming a printed target word is reduced when preceded by an identical masked prime (match prime) or by one that has the same initial letter (onset prime) compared to an all letter different control. ...
  • The Environmental Management of Whaingaroa/Raglan Harbour with a Focus on the Period Since 1970 

    Fisher, M. (University of Canterbury. Ngai Tahu Research Centre, 2014)
    The claims issues of relevance to this study of Whaingaroa Harbour generally focus on the management, environmental degradation and alleged cultural desecration of the Harbour by the Crown and its delegated local ...
  • Phosphorous from Agricultural Run-off: New insights from Monitoring and Modelling 

    Webster-Brown, J.G.; Waters, A.S. (University of Canterbury. Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management, 2014)
    The management of phosphorous (P) in agricultural run-off currently focuses on trapping P-bearing sediment in riparian zones or settlement ponds. This is based on the common assumption that P is almost entirely bound to ...
  • On the inter-dependence of tonal and vocalic production goals in Chinese 

    Shaw, J.; Wei-rong, C.; Proctor, M.I.; Derrick, D.; Dakhoul, E. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2014)
    We studied tone-vowel coproduction using Electromagnetic Articulography (EMA). Fleshpoints on the tongue and jaw were tracked while native Chinese speakers (n = 6) produced three vowels, /a/, /i/, /u/, combined with ...
  • Some initial findings regarding language influence on playing brass instruments 

    Heyne, M.; Derrick, D. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2014)
    This paper presents some initial findings regarding the influence of First Language on playing brass instruments. Using ultra- sound imaging of the tongue, vowel production and sustained trombone notes were compared for a ...
  • Coordination of tongue tip and body in place differences among English coronal obstruents 

    Derrick, D.; Fiasson, R.; Best, C.T. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2014)
    Using electromagnetometry tracking of the tongue, Best et al. (2010, 2014) have demonstrated that Wubuy, an Australian language with four coronal stop places, shows significant differences in tongue tip vs. tongue body ...
  • The Environmental Management of Pirongia Forest Park with a Focus on the Period Since 1970 

    Fisher, M. (University of Canterbury. Ngai Tahu Research Centre, 2014)
    This research commission is comprised of five documents instead of one: an environmental overview (together with the three topic-studies), and separate case studies on Whaingaroa Harbour, the Mokau River mouth, the Waipa ...
  • Canterbury Water Management Strategy 

    Jenkins, B.; Friend, J.; Midgley, G. (University of Canterbury. Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management, 2014)
  • A numerical study into minimal conditions of arterial vasomotion 

    Johny, J.P.; David, T. (University of Canterbury. BlueFern Super Computer, 2013)
    The occlusion of arteries during ischeamia causes a state of insufficient blood supply and hypoperfusion in downstream to keep the brain functioning. Hypoperfusion in human brain is a critical event which leads to ...
  • Using complexity thinking to foster a games of chase curriculum in a New Zealand early childhood setting 

    Hussain, H. (University of Canterbury. Early Years Care and Education, 2013)
    This paper presents an example of how complexity thinking was used to foster a local curriculum related to games of chase at an EC setting. It shows how activities, teaching and children’s learning interacted in an on-going ...
  • An evolving business model for scholarly publishing: exploring the payment of article processing charges (APCs) to achieve open access 

    Angelo, Anton; Lund, P. (University of Canterbury. Library, 2014)
    In terms of scholarly publishing the academic library’s role in Kaitiakitanga is changing. Open access is growing in importance as library budgets contract. There are two main routes to open access: the green route through ...
  • On-chip analysis of C. elegans muscular forces and locomotion patterns in microstructured environments 

    Johari, S.; Nock, V.; Alkaisi, M.M.; Wang, W. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2013)
    The understanding of force interplays between an organism and its environment is imperative in biological processes. Noticeably scarce from the study of C. elegans locomotion is the measurement of the nematode locomotion ...
  • Solving the Dirichlet problem constructively 

    Bridges, D.S.; McKubre-Jordens, M. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2013)
    The Dirichlet problem is of central importance in both applied and abstract potential theory. We prove the (perhaps surprising) result that the existence of solutions in the general case is an essentially nonconstructive ...
