    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates advanced Swedish students’ development of three grammatical phenomena: subject-verb concord, prepositions and article use in compositions and translations. In order to describe the students’ development of these categories, actual errors are related to potential errors forming so called ‘error scores’. LÄS MER

  2. 2. ADHD, epilepsy, and related childhood psychopathology : understanding shared genetic risk, developmental trajectories, and pharmacological treatment safety

    Författare :Isabell Brikell; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder, affecting 5-7% of children and 2.5-5% of adults worldwide. The disorder is characterized by excessive and age-inappropriate symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, which impair everyday functioning across several settings (home, school, work).

  3. 3. Brain maturation, cognitive tasks, and quantitative electroencephalography : A study in children with attention deficit hyperactive disorder

    Författare :Eman Mohamed El-Sayed; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ADHD; twin study; twin design; case control study; maturation; developmental trajectories; maturational lag hypothesis; brain immaturity; QEEG; Vigilance Task; Delay Task;

    Sammanfattning : Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common psychiatric disorders of childhood. Despite a long history, widespread clinical acceptance, and extensive research, the diagnosis and treatment are still controversial. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Autistic-like traits

    Författare :Sebastian Lundström; Malmö Rättspsykiatri; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Autism; twin; genetics; Autistic-like traits;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by restrictions in social interaction, understanding, and communication, by stereotyped patterns of repetitive behaviors, and by narrow interests. ASDs, which affect about 1% of the population, are predominantly genetic, but no single explanation has been found. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Deformation and Fatigue Behaviour of Aluminium Alloys for High Specific Power IC Engine Applications

    Författare :Elanghovan Natesan; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :mechanical behaviour; aluminium; A356; thermo-mechanical fatigue; fatigue; constitutive models; cylinder head; ageing;

    Sammanfattning : The development towards higher specific power and lower displacement engines in recent years has placed increasingly high thermal loads on the internal combustion engine materials. Further, the advent of hybrid power trains placing higher demands on quick starts and a rapid approach to maximum power necessitates the automotive industry to move towards a more robust computational thermo-mechanical fatigue life prediction methodology to develop reliable engines and reduce developmental costs.
