Approved Asset Pricing, Signal Type and Overconfident Investors

Project Title

2006 : $80,000

2007 : $64,000

2008 : $68,000

Primary RFCD 3503 BANKING, FINANCE AND INVESTMENT


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

Recent bubbles in financial markets and other anxieties with regard to whether financial assets are correctly valued have led

to a reduction in the confidence in financial markets. This study, by focussing upon potential biases in the price formation

process, will provide strong insights into this important topic. In covering three major equity markets, the project will provide

important guidance for the design of regulatory policies on corporate disclosure by both Governments and Stock Exchanges.

Given the increased need for funded superannuation/pension schemes, an increase in the confidence in capital market

processes will benefit the development of successful funded schemes.

2008 : $75,000

Primary RFCD 2707 ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION

APD Dr A Dussutour


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

We are investigating the properties of traffic flow in ant colonies. Ants seem to meet their transportation needs without traffic

congestion or complex centralised control. By discovering how ants accomplish this, we increase our understanding of social

behaviour in the natural world, and also provide the basic research on which applied solutions to human traffic problems can

be based.

Approved The eruption, emplacement and characteristics of extremely large volume pyroclastic flow deposits

Project Title (ignimbrites).

2006 : $132,000

2007 : $110,000

2008 : $110,000

2009 : $60,000

Primary RFCD 2601 GEOLOGY


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

Pyroclastic flows are hot, turbulent, flows of volcanic gas, pumice, rock debris and fine ash often produced during major

explosive volcanic eruptions. Most historic and researched events have been mostly small volume examples. In this research

we propose to investigate the characteristics of 3 extremely large volume (>1,000 km3) pyroclastic flow deposits in the Andes

of South America, to understand the eruption origins and the flow dynamics of such large volume and potentially far flowing

(up to 200 km from the vent) pyroclastic flows. These are potentially more destructive than the Indian Ocean tsunami event,

and eruptions of this magnitude could occur in Indonesia, PNG and New Zealand.

Approved Australia's Black Past: the shared history of transatlantic slave trading and convict transportation

Project Title to Africa and Australia

2006 : $88,000

2007 : $63,000

2008 : $62,000

2009 : $62,000

Primary RFCD 4301 HISTORICAL STUDIES

APD Dr EL Christopher


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

Every nation needs an understanding of its past the significance of this project is that it examines a part of Australia's history

that is very little understood. European settlement of the continent was implemented at a time that ideas of race, and the

relationship of skin colour to freedom, were altering significantly. These changes had a fundamental effect on the convict

colony and the relationship of the early colonists with the aboriginal people. Only by gaining knowledge of how early racial

interpretations were influenced by global events can Australia interpret her ever controversial racial history.

Approved Estrogen signalling in gonadotropes

Project Title

2006 : $150,000

2007 : $116,000

2008 : $116,000

Primary RFCD 3206 MEDICAL PHYSIOLOGY


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

Estrogen action is a normal prerequisite for cyclic function of reproduction in the female, but little is known about how this

important hormone acts in the relevant cells of the pituitary gland (gonadotropes). In order to gain information on normal

function, we will conduct studies on gonadotropes treated with estrogen in a range of paradigms. The information will be

valuable in understanding normal reproduction, but will also form the basis of further studies to investigate the effects of

drugs that affect estrogen action and environmental estrogens.


DP0664022 Dr TJ Cole; A/Prof MJ Morris


Approved Regulation of Stress Hormone Receptors in the Brain

Project Title

2006 : $76,000

2007 : $66,000

2008 : $66,000

Primary RFCD 2701 BIOCHEMISTRY AND CELL BIOLOGY


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

Our research will provide information on how the brain controls our response to stress and will allow the development of

targeted strategies to reduce the possibility during chronic stress of the development of conditions such as anxiety and

depression. This will improve mental health outcomes in Australia and add to Australia's economic and social stability.

Primary RFCD 4302 ARCHAEOLOGY AND PREHISTORY

APD Dr TP Denham


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

The Project will foster greater communication, public understanding and research links between Australia and Papua New

Guinea. The Project will also provide archaeological training for students at Australian universities and students and

practitioners in Papua New Guinea. The research seeks to understand the development of societies and subsistence

practices, particularly plant exploitation and agriculture, in New Guinea from the Pleistocene to the present. The research will

chart long term human environment relations in New Guinea, which are central to understanding the sustainability of food

production and the maintenance of biodiversity in the Australasian region.

Approved Manipulating nano fibres to control nerve regeneration

Project Title

2006 : $90,000

2007 : $70,000

2008 : $70,000

Primary RFCD 2915 BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

Diseases of the brain and mind are the most common diseases in the western world; being even more prevalent than cardiac

or malignant disease. With Australia's aging demographic, diseases of the brain and mind will continue to impact on our

productivity in the workplace, our quality of life, and the ability of the medicare and private health care systems to keep up

with the ever increasing demand for older Australians.


The research proposed here will enable us to find solutions to this serious problem by building on Australia's strong track

record in nanotechnology and biotechnology research, and help towards new and effective treatments.

Approved Probability and necessity in the physical sciences

Project Title

2006 : $55,755

2007 : $55,755

2008 : $55,755

2009 : $55,755

Primary RFCD 4401 PHILOSOPHY

APD Dr T Handfield


Administering Institution Monash University

Project Summary

This is a philosophical study of concepts that are vital to the conduct of science: namely, dispositional concepts such as force

in physics, solubility in chemistry, biological fitness, and psychological traits. By offering a radical and novel interpretation of

such concepts, this project has the potential to influence the future development of Australian science. Moreover, dispositions

are crucial to understanding our distinctively human perspective on the world. The abilities to predict, reason, communicate

meanings, and to act intentionally all involve dispositional states. This project addresses the fundamental nature of such

states, and will thus be of significance to anyone who hopes to understand these distinctively human phenomena.
