With hormonal treatment it is possible to produce behavior in the rat which corresponds to the mental symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), and pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Human Pheromones : Psychological and Neurological Modulation of a Putative Human Pheromone

Consequently, social security, such as aid for the sick and elderly, came to be organized through the public domain, giving rise to the welfare states. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Lighting Control Systems for Energy Saving and User Acceptance: State-of-the-art and future directions

    Sammanfattning : Lighting accounts for one-fifth of global electricity use. In Sweden, energy demand for lighting corresponds to 20% of the total electricity use in office buildings. Lighting retrofit measures are considered to be among the most cost-efficient way to reduce energy use in buildings. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Human Rationality : Observing or Inferring Reality

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the boundary of human rationality and how psychological processes interact with underlying regularities in the environment and affect beliefs and achievement. Two common modes in everyday experiential learning, supervised and unsupervised learning were hypothesized to tap different ecological and epistemological approaches to human adaptation; the Brunswikian and the Gibsonian approach.
