    • Some Remarks on Wave Function Monism 

      Allori, Valia (2010-10)
      Is wave function monism, the view that the wave function completely describes physical objects, a sensible view? GRW, one candidate to solve the measurement problem, might be taken to be an example of such view. I argue ...

      Dangerous sounds can be encountered throughout activities in everyday life. One of the biggest leisure activities done by college-aged people is going out to local bars and restaurants. The purposed of this study was to ...
    • Sound pressure level and noradrenergic influences on audiogenic seizures in DBA mice 

      Mayall, Alice (Northern Illinois University, 1988)
      In Experiment 1,21-day-old DBA mice (N = 38) were exposed to different levels of sound intensity (100,110,120 dB SPL) in order to determine the relationship between sound intensity and audiogenic seizure (AGS) activity, ...
    • Sound radiation from bass handbells 

      Mansell, Edward R. (Northern Illinois University, 1996)
      The sound intensity patterns of two G1 handbells were investigated. One bell is aluminum and the other is traditional bronze. The results indicate that the aluminum bell has a better radiation efficiency for the (2,0) mode ...
