  1. 1. Preference Effects in the Treatment of Panic Disorder

    Författare :Martin Svensson; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Preference effects; Doubly randomised controlled preference trial; ; Panic disorder; Cognitive behavioural therapy; Psychodynamic therapy;

    Sammanfattning : Patient preferences have drawn considerable attention as a potential moderator of treatment outcome. The Doubly Randomised Controlled Preference Trial (DRCPT) in which patients are randomised to a choice between two or more treatments or random assignment to one of these same treatments is considered one of the most rigorous tests of the effects of patient preferences on outcomes.

  2. 2. Valence-Level Dependent Presentation-Order Effects in Preference Judgments

    Författare :Mats P. Englund; Åke Hellström; William M. Petrusic; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Preference judgment; order effects; stimulus valence; sensation weighting; feature matching; comparison direction; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : Reversal of the stimulus-presentation order often affects the outcome in paired stimulus comparison. Psychophysicists have found that the size and direction of the order effects depend on the compared stimuli’s magnitudes, but this magnitude dependence does not seem to have been recognized previously in cognitive research on preference judgment.

  3. 3. The value of preserving nature : Preference uncertainty and distributional effects

    Författare :Thomas Broberg; Runar Brännlund; Susana Mourato; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with valuation of nonmarket goods using contingent valuation and consists of four papers and an introduction to the research area. Paper [I] examines the public benefits from preserving old-growth forest in the sub-mountainous region in Sweden. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Non-target Effects of Genetically Modified Trees

    Författare :Patrik Blomberg; Anders Wennström; Jan Stenlid; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetically modified; GM trees; secondary metabolism; phytochemistry; Populus; transgenic; non-target effects; natural enemies; plant-pathogen herbivore interaction; environmental effects; parasitic fungi; herbivorous insect; Terrestrial ecology; Terrestisk ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : To date, few studies have focused on the effects of genetically modified trees (GM trees) on the environment. One concern with GM trees is that they may have unanticipated effects on non-target organisms, i.e. effects on organisms that are not direct targets of the genetically modified trait. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Issues in Urban Travel Demand Modelling : ICT Implications and Trip timing choice

    Författare :Maria Börjesson; Staffan Algers; Kay Axhausen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Journey; Mathematical model; Origin traffic ; Time; Telecommuting; Journey time; Variability; Stated preference; Delay; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; 11 Road: Personal transport; 11 Road: Personal transport; Travel Demand; ICT; Tele-substitution; Revealed Preference; Stated Preference; Mixed Logit; Unobserved Heterogeneity; Travel Time Uncertainty; Schedule Delay;

    Sammanfattning : Travel demand forecasting is essential for many decisions, such as infrastructure investments and policy measures. Traditionally travel demand modelling has considered trip frequency, mode, destination and route choice. This thesis considers two other choice dimensions, hypothesised to have implications for travel demand forecasting. LÄS MER
