    • Clinical classification of strength and skill impairments in neurogenic dysphagia. 

      Ng, Karen B. (University of Canterbury, 2018)
      Swallowing is a complex, precise sequence of movements that is fundamentally mediated by brainstem mechanisms, but volitionally modulated by cortical processes. Although swallowing biomechanics are fairly well defined, ...

      Lineham, Peter James (University of Canterbury, 1974)
      In the Common Law of England, a writ of capias could be used to arrest a debtor and hold him on bail or in prison until he was brought to trial, and thereafter until he paid the debt. This thesis studies the development ...

    • The Little objet a of Anarchist Philosophy 

      Rousselle, Duane (University of Canterbury, 2019)

    • The Contemporary Disposition of the Novel 

      Armstrong, Nancy (University of Canterbury, 2019)
