    Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Nucleation in ElectrocrystallizationIn: Electrochimica Acta, ISSN 0013-4686, E-ISSN 1873-3859Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The belief amongst most electrochemists that the appropriate models, representing “homogeneous” and “heterogeneous” nucleation in the context of electrocrystallization, are spherical and spherical-cap shapes, respectively, is challenged. A proper foundation for modelling heterogeneous nucleation is introduced. The free energy required for the formation of a nucleus within an indent is derived and compared with that required for the formation of a nucleus onto a flat surface of an electrode. It is shown for the first time, using the classical theory of nucleation, that a much smaller free energy is required for nucleating within an indent on the surface of an electrode than nucleating onto a flat electrode surface. The applicability of the model, with the corresponding equations, to nucleation in the context of electrocrystallization is established.

    E-handel: En jämförande studie om upplevda risker mellan män och kvinnor2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Risker vid handel på nätet är större än vid handel i fysiska butiker och är ett stort hinder till varför konsumenter väljer att inte handla på nätet. Ett sätt att minska upplevd risk vid e- handel är genom tillit till återförsäljare. Dock är det svårt för en konsument att avgöra om en återförsäljare på nätet är pålitlig eller ej. Då e-handel blir alltmer utbrett och många företag erbjuder varor som är riktade enbart till män eller kvinnor blir vår frågeställning: Hur skiljer sig upplevd risk med e-handel mellan män och kvinnor, och vilken betydelse har tillit till återförsäljare för hantering av dessa risker? För att besvara vår frågeställning diskuterades begreppen upplevd risk och tillit i en manlig och kvinnlig fokusgrupp där olika dimensioner av upplevd risk och påverkande faktorer till tillit togs upp. Dimensionerna av upplevd risk som undersöktes var finansiell-, produkt-, leverans-, social och tidsrisk samt risk med informationssäkerhet. Tillitsfaktorerna som undersöktes var återförsäljar- och hemsideegenskaper, erfarenhet med återförsäljare, tredje part och opportunistiskt beteende. Resultaten från vår studie pekar på att det finns små skillnader mellan män och kvinnor gällande upplevd risk, och att produktrisk är den mest betydande för kvinnorna och den enda risken som männen upplevde. Vidare visade det sig att alla tillitsfaktorer var av betydelse för respondenternas upplevda risk och att erfarenhet var den viktigaste för båda grupperna, men att tredje part var viktigare för kvinnorna än för männen.

    FODMAP i praktiken: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om dietisters uppfattning och erfarenheter av FODMAP2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    BAKGRUND FODMAP är en behandlingsmetod för IBS som kommer från Australien och som är relativt ny i Sverige. FODMAP betyder Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Monosacharides and Polyols och går ut på att begränsa mängden fermenterbara kolhydrater i kosten. Dessa kolhydrater har i studier visat sig kunna orsaka många av de symptom som IBS-patienter lider av och att så många som 3 av 4 av de patienter som testar behandlingen får reducerade symptom.

    SYFTE Syftet med studien var att undersöka och belysa dietisters erfarenheter, uppfattning och hantering av FODMAP.

    METOD Kvalitativa intervjuer baserade på en semistrukturerad frågeguide genomfördes. Totalt 12 dietister intervjuades och samtalen skedde via personliga besök eller telefon. Intervjuerna spelades in för att sedan transkriberas. Samtalen analyserades genom kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

    RESULTAT Dietisterna hade olika lång erfarenhet av att jobba med FODMAP. Metoden beskrevs som strukturerad och tydlig och kan ge goda resultat. De flesta hade kommit i kontakt med metoden via praktik, jobb eller föreläsningar. Dietisterna jobbar antingen med enskilda samtal eller med grupper. Problem kan uppstå med att metoden kan uppfattas som krånglig för patienten, att den endast fokuserar på kolhydrater och inte på andra möjliga orsaker såsom stress och andra näringsämnen som kan ge symptom samt med att dietisterna själva inte kallar patienten utan får dem remitterade från läkare. Inga problem ses med näringsintag så länge strikt behandling enbart sker på kort sikt. Få dietister tittade på ett vidare hälsoperspektiv. Den viktigaste faktorn för en lyckad behandling var motivation och följsamhet från patienten.

    SLUTSATS Vid arbete med FODMAP behövs goda kunskaper och erfarenhet samt god tillgång till fungerande rutiner och resurser. För att kunna utföra en adekvat behandling krävs även en stark motivation och följsamhet hos patienten. En lyckad behandling ökar motivationen hos dietister att arbeta med behandlingen. Vår studie ger indikationer om att de dietister som har goda kunskaper, hög motivation samt erfarenhet av FODMAP är positiva till behandlingen och har lättare för att hitta lösningar på de problem som uppstår. Övergripande hälsoaspekter och probiotika behöver lyftas fram och tillföras som en del av behandlingen. Mer forskning och utbildning behövs för en klarare bild av hur FODMAP bäst ska tillämpas som behandlingsmetod.

    Development of the infant's ability to retrieve food through a slit2002In: Infant and Child Development, ISSN 1522-7227, E-ISSN 1522-7219, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 43-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of the present study is to explore infants' ability to comprehend task manipulation, and whether they can feed themselves with a spoon when food has to be retrieved through a slit in a lid placed over a plate. To access the food, the infant has to align the bowl of the spoon with the slit. The orientation of the slit is manipulated, and certain orientations require more elaborate modifications of the feeding action than others. The infants are observed at monthly intervals, from 12 to 17 months of age. The presence of the lid affects the behaviour of the infants at all ages. Some behaviours become more immature. The infants grasp the spoon with more primitive grasp configurations, they grasp the spoon less consistently at the top of the handle, and they orient the spoon less consistently, with its bowl facing upwards. These differences decrease with age. The infants also make attempts to adjust to the constraints of the task, mainly by inclining the spoon more vertically, and rotating the hand in such a way as to align the spoon with the orientation of the slit. These adjustments improve with age.

    Prediction in Typical and Atypical Development2020Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Forming predictions about what is going to happen next is a crucial ability that develops early in life. Theory and some empirical evidence suggest that predictive abilities may be impaired in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The overarching aim of this thesis is to investigate early measures of prediction in relation to concurrent and later outcomes in typical and atypical development, with a particular focus on ASD and related behavioral problems.

    In Study I, we used motion capture technology to examine prospective motor control and its relationship to executive functions in typically developing 18-month-olds. Our findings showed that motor control is associated with executive functioning in infancy.

    Study II investigated motor control in infants at low and elevated likelihood for ASD and examined how these measures relate to later development. We found group differences as well as similarities in motor control in 10-months-olds with and without a familial history of ASD. Early motor measures were related to general developmental level, but not ASD symptomatology in toddlerhood.

    Using eye tracking, Study III examined how infants with later ASD and neurotypical infants form predictions about visual object motion. Our findings indicated that infants with later ASD were able to form predictions about object motion and adapt to simple changes in motion patterns, and that their performance did not differ from the performance of neurotypical infants.

    In Study IV, we surveyed parents about their experiences during participation in an infant sibling study of ASD as a first step to understanding the benefits and risks associated with this type of research. Parents were generally positive about their experiences both from their own perspective as well as, the child’s perspective.

    This thesis illustrates the potential of using advanced technology, such as motion tracking and eye tracking, to study and compare prediction in typical and atypical development. It points to the important role of prediction and motor control for child development, but fails to find a specific link to ASD.

    Abstract [en]

    The importance of executive functioning for later life outcomes, along with its potential to be positively affected by intervention programs, motivates the need to find early markers of executive functioning. In this study, 18-month-olds performed three executive-function tasksinvolving simple inhibition, working memory, and more complex inhibitionand a motion-capture task assessing prospective motor control during reaching. We demonstrated that prospective motor control, as measured by the peak velocity of the first movement unit, is related to infants' performance on simple-inhibition and working memory tasks. The current study provides evidence that motor control and executive functioning are intertwined early in life, which suggests an embodied perspective on executive-functioning development. We argue that executive functions and prospective motor control develop from a common source and a single motive: to control action. This is the first demonstration that low-level movement planning is related to higher-order executive control early in life.

    Abstract [en]

    Background:

    Prospective longitudinal studies of infant siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) play an important role in advancing our knowledge about early developmental pathways in ASD. Despite this clear benefit, currently little is known about potential risks or disadvantages for participating families. As a first step in addressing this issue, we asked parents about their experiences from participating in an infant sibling study.

    Method:

    Eighty-eight families responded to a questionnaire examining parents' experiences from participating in an infant sibling study. The questions assessed parents' satisfaction with the study, the child's perceived satisfaction, and the parents' motivation for participating. The study included parents of two groups, (1) infants with an older sibling diagnosed with ASD (HR, high risk, n = 43) and (2) infants with no familial history of ASD (LR, low risk, n = 21).

    Results:

    The results indicated that parents are generally positive about study participation and few disadvantages were reported. This pattern was mirrored when splitting parents' responses into the two groups. There was no indication for group differences between parents of infants at high risk and low risk for ASD.

    Conclusion:

    Our findings present a first step into understanding parents' experiences from participating in an infant sibling study. Most parents were satisfied with participation in the study and only few disadvantages were reported. Our results have implications for ethical discussions about benefits and risks regarding infant sibling studies in various fields.

    Motor atypicalities in infancy are associated with general developmental level at 2 years, but not autistic symptoms2020In: Autism, ISSN 1362-3613, E-ISSN 1461-7005Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Atypical motor development has frequently been reported in infants at elevated likelihood for autism spectrum disorder. However, no previous study has used detailed motion capture technology to compare infant siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder and infant siblings with no familial history of autism spectrum disorder. We investigated reaching movements during an interceptive action task in 10-month-old infants using kinematic data with high spatiotemporal resolution. The results indicated that several measures were different in infants at elevated likelihood. However, longitudinal analyses revealed that while specific infant motor measures (e.g. number of movement units) were related to broad measures of general developmental level in toddlerhood, the associations with later autism spectrum disorder symptomatology were not significant. These findings confirm that some aspects of motor functioning are atypical in infants at elevated likelihood for autism spectrum disorder, but provide no support for the view that these issues are specifically linked to autism spectrum disorder symptoms, but may rather reflect neurodevelopment more generally.Lay abstractAtypicalities in motor functioning are often observed in later born infant siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder. The goal of our study was to investigate motor functioning in infants with and without familial history of autism spectrum disorder. Specifically, we investigated how infants catch a ball that is rolling toward them following a non-straight path, a task that requires both efficient planning and execution. Their performance was measured using detailed three-dimensional motion capture technology. We found that several early motor functioning measures were different in infants with an older autistic sibling compared to controls. However, these early motor measures were not related to autistic symptoms at the age of 2 years. Instead, we found that some of the early motor measures were related to their subsequent non-social, general development. The findings of our study help us understand motor functioning early in life and how motor functioning is related to other aspects of development.

    SOFTWARE PATENTS: A study on the patentability of software inventions2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The primary objective of the thesis will be to focus on patent protection of software under the European Patent Convention, by analyzing the different approaches that the European Patent Office has taken into consideration since the mid-1980s. These approaches are derived from the different decisions that emanate from the Technical Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office. The thesis will examine the most relevant decisions illustrating the juridical tendencies and basis that have been utilized to decide over the patentability of computer programs. The analysis will conclude with the latest approach taken by the Technical Board of the European Patent Office. The study will examine the patentability requirements of inventions in general established within the European Patent Convention. Sources that will be utilized to carry out this research will include case law, legislation, specialized legal commentary; journals and books. The present study sustains that computer programs may be patented as long as they comply with all the general requirements of an invention prescribed under the European Patent Convention together with the condition established by case law called the technical character requirement. Nevertheless, due to the fact that the Technical Boards of Appeal are not bound by previous case law, the current position could keep evolving as it relies on the stance of  the European Patent Office on patentability of computer programs which is seems to be influenced by the changes in the technological world

    Ethical web design: An audit of municipality websites in Europe2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    All municipalities have a website. This thesis examined the websites of 24 towns in 6 EU member countries in terms of their ethical design. This study found that there are websites that are in the stage of providing contact information only, while other are more detailed with advanced techniques allowing openness and participation. The study found also that there is no code of ethics or EU / country laws that regulate the design or content of a municipality website, as far as their ethical aspect is concerned. What is regulated by the EU and the countries of the municipalities studied in this thesis, is the existence and use of cookies in municipality websites.  The study found that due to lack of control, the websites’ ethical design mainly depends on the local authorities’ interest and initiative. Even for cookies where laws exist, citizens are not informed correctly.

    Gelebte Mehrsprachigkeit im Plattenbau: Untersuchungen von Narrativen und Praktiken russlanddeutscher junger Erwachsener2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on the lived multilingualism of a group of young Russian-German adults who as children migrated together with their families from post-Soviet states to the Federal Republic of Germany during the 1990s. Today these adults live in a ‘Plattenbau’ housing estate in a small town in one of the new federal states of Germany. The large pre-fabricated concrete-slab system-built housing estates that were built during the GDR-era are today generally considered as deprived areas due a combination of decreasing population and high unemployment.

    This thesis shows how young Russian-Germans create a multilingual community of practice and use various aspects of language and non-linguistic resources for identity construction. The data analysed in this thesis comes from ethnographic studies conducted during three phases of fieldwork between Spring 2011 and Spring 2012. The data was collected at a youth centre where the group of young Russian-German adults regularly met.

    Combining intensive participant observation, field notes, photos, and narrative interviews the thesis is a mixed-method investigation. Underpinning the analysis of the research data are theoretical models of the relationship between language, identity, and space. Methodologically this study combines linguistic ethnography, narrative analysis, and membership categorization analysis.

    The thesis argues that an ethnographical-narrative approach is a powerful tool that is able to highlight the role of language(s) and non-linguistic resources for identity construction in social spaces, illustrates how young Russian-Germans construct a web of multilingual identities by using social categories to position themselves and others, and shows how the lived multilingualism of  young Russian-German adults influences all aspects of their social lives. For example, the thesis shows the maintenance of Russian as a heritage language within Russian-German families, yet and an avoidance of visible signs of the Russian-German heritage in public spaces.

    IAS 40 – förvaltningsfastigheter: Utformningen av redovisningen till verkligt värde2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I resultaträkningen tycks praxis utvecklas mot att värdeförändringarna redovisas som en del av rörelseresultatet och att realiserade och orealiserade värdeförändringar redovisas som separata poster. När det gäller beräkningen och presentationen av värdeförändringar är en central fråga om de realiserade värdeförändringarna skall tas med i beräkningsuppställningen över fastighetsbeståndets värdeförändringar. Här är det dock svårt att se utvecklingen av praxis. En annan central fråga är oklarheterna kring redovisade investeringar. En bra lösning är att redovisa separata kolumner för sålda och helårsägda fastigheter. Man kan också konstatera att praxis tycks gå mot årsvis värdering av fastigheterna. Begreppsanvändningen kring beräkningen och presentationen av värdeförändringar upplever vi som mer enhetlig än begreppsanvändningen i resultaträkningarna.

    Street Music, City Rhythms: The urban soundscape as heard by street musicians2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The soundscape plays a key, if often overlooked, role in the construction of public urban space. Street music – a conscious deliberate propagation of sound in public space – opens an entryway into comprehending the role of sound in the city, and what it reveals about the city’s inhabitants. Ethnographic fieldwork in Brussels and Stockholm focuses on street musicians of all kinds, exploring how their music is shaped by their personal motivations, how their practices negotiate meaning in sound and in space, and how their rhythms shape, and are shaped by, the city. These explorations give reason to question R. Murray Schafer’s philosophies on soundscape studies, particularly in the urban context. Drawing from Henri Lefebvre’s notions of the production of space, and rhythmanalysis as an analytical tool, the urban soundscape is understood as an ongoing negotiation of individual actions, where dynamics of power, identity, and ideology become audible. Street musicians and their sound cultures feature not just as a topic worthy of study, but also as a guide of how and why to listen to and analyze the rhythms of the city.

    Goal saliency boosts infants' action prediction for human manual actions, but not for mechanical claws2016In: Infant Behavior and Development, ISSN 0163-6383, E-ISSN 1879-0453, Vol. 44, p. 29-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research indicates that infants' prediction of the goals of observed actions is influenced by own experience with the type of agent performing the action (i.e., human hand vs. non-human agent) as well as by action-relevant features of goal objects (e.g., object size). The present study investigated the combined effects of these factors on 12-month-olds' action prediction. Infants' (N=49) goal-directed gaze shifts were recorded as they observed 14 trials in which either a human hand or a mechanical claw reached for a small goal area (low-saliency goal) or a large goal area (high-saliency goal). Only infants who had observed the human hand reaching for a high-saliency goal fixated the goal object ahead of time, and they rapidly learned to predict the action goal across trials. By contrast, infants in all other conditions did not track the observed action in a predictive manner, and their gaze shifts to the action goal did not change systematically across trials. Thus, high-saliency goals seem to boost infants' predictive gaze shifts during the observation of human manual actions, but not of actions performed by a mechanical device. This supports the assumption that infants' action predictions are based on interactive effects of action-relevant object features (e.g., size) and own action experience.

    Kommunal platsmarknadsföring och invånarnas roll: En studie om Knivsta kommun2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie behandlar kommunal platsmarknadsföring med utgångspunkt i Knivsta kommun. Flera teorier om platsmarknadsföring tas upp. Bland annat om invånarnas betydande roll i platsmarknadsföringen och tidigare exempel på lyckade och mindre lyckade platsmarknadsföringskampanjer. Genom att intervjua representanter för Knivsta kommun och ett antal av kommunens invånare, skapades en överblick av platsmarknadsföringen i området. Resultatet visar att Knivsta kommun har en tydlig vision om vart de vill komma i framtiden, vilket innebär en del förändringar som till exempel att växa från att vara en liten pendlarkommun och villastad, till att bli mer av en småstad. Dessutom framhävs en vilja att etablera flera företag inom kommunen. Om Knivsta kommuns planer på förändring inte får stöd av kommunens egna invånare riskerar planerna att misslyckas. De tillfrågade invånarna i Knivsta kommun ger indikationer på en positiv inställning till kommunens framtidsplaner. Men i vissa frågor som Knivsta kommuns planerade förändring till att bli en småstad är stödet mindre och en mer grundläggande undersökning av kommunens invånare vore därför intressant.

    Smoking and the risk of leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma (Sweden)1998In: Cancer Causes and Control, ISSN 0957-5243, E-ISSN 1573-7225, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 49-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While several epidemiologic studies have indicated a link between smoking and the risk of developing hematolymphoproliferative cancers (chiefly leukemias, lymphomas, and multiple myelomas), in particular myeloid leukemia, the role of tobacco in the etiology of these neoplasms remains unclear. To evaluate the potential impact of tobacco use on development of leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma, we conducted a cohort study of 334,957 Swedish construction workers using prospectively collected exposure-information with complete long-term follow-up. A total of 1,322 incident neoplasms occurred during the study period, 1971-91. We found no significant association between smoking status, number of cigarettes smoked, or duration of smoking and the risk of developing leukemias, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma. There was a suggestion of a positive association between smoking and the risk of developing Hodgkin's disease, although the rate ratios were not significantly elevated, except for young current smokers. No positive dose-risk trends emerged. Our study provides no evidence that smoking bears any major relationship to the occurrence of leukemias, non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

    Dependency Parsing and Dialogue Systems: an investigation of dependency parsing for commercial application2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, we investigate dependency parsing for commercial application, namely for future integration in a dialogue system. To do this, we conduct several experiments on dialogue data to assess parser performance on this domain, and to improve this performance over a baseline. This work makes the following contributions: first, the creation and manual annotation of a gold-standard data set for dialogue data; second, a thorough error analysis of the data set, comparing neural network parsing to traditional parsing methods on this domain; and finally, various domain adaptation experiments show how parsing on this data set can be improved over a baseline.  We further show that dialogue data is characterized by questions in particular, and suggest a method for improving overall parsing on these constructions.

    Learning with learner corpora: Using the TLE for native language identification2017In: Proceedings of the joint workshop on NLP for Computer Assisted Language Learning and NLP for Language Acquisition, 2017, p. 1-7Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the usefulness of the Treebank of Learner English (TLE) when applied to the task of Native Language Identification (NLI). The TLE is effectively a parallel corpus of Standard/Learner English, as there are two versions; one based on original learner essays, and the other an error-corrected version. We use the corpus to explore how useful a parser trained on ungrammatical relations is compared to a parser trained on grammatical relations, when used as features for a native language classification task. While parsing results are much better when trained on grammatical relations, native language classification is slightly better using a parser trained on the original treebank containing ungrammatical relations.

    The article comprises an introduction to and an edition and translation of an Old Swedish sermon fragment found in the Hannaas Collection at the Ethno-Folkloristic Archive, University of Bergen, Norway (Hannaas 66). This previously unpublished paper fragment is one of the missing parts of the Old Swedish Homily Book (known as Svensk järteckens postilla), dating from the second half of the fifteenth century and now housed at the Royal Library in Stockholm, Sweden (Cod. Holm. A 111). The text in Hannaas 66 comprises a sermon for the 8th Sunday after Trinity based on Matthew 7. 15–16 and includes a miracle exemplum that illustrates the importance of acting justly and following the will of God.

    Birgitta and Bernard: Five Old Swedish Fragments in the Danish National Archives2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Danish National Archives in Copenhagen houses several thousand manuscript fragments, the remains of numerous works that were cut up and used in the bindings of later books. The majority of these fragments are written in Latin, Middle Low German, or Danish, although a few in Old Swedish also survive. Five of these Old Swedish fragments are published and discussed in this article. They contain parts of two of St Birgitta’s Revelations (Liber Caelestis) and of St Bernard’s A Rule of Good Life (Ad sororem modus bene vivendi in christianam religionem), known in Old Swedish as Ett gudhelikt lifwærne. The Birgittine texts are from an early stage of the retranslation process when compared to other extant versions and include several unique wordings that demonstrate the specific use of the original manuscript in a monastic environment. The Bernard fragments are one of just two extant versions and appear to predate the version in Stockholm, Royal Library, A 9; as such, they are an important witness to the propagation of the saint’s writings in Sweden.
