  1. 1. Accommodating differences Power, belonging, and representation online

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Författare :Karin Hansson; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; e-participation; e-democracy; online identity; artistic research; visual method; participatory method; belonging; singularity; performative states; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : How can political participatory processes online be understood in the dynamic, conflicted and highly mediated situations of contemporary society? What does democracy mean in a scenario where inequality and difference are the norms, and where people tend to abandon situations in which they and their interests are not recognized? How can we accommodate differences rather than consensus in a scenario where multiple networks of people are the starting point rather than a single community?In this thesis, these questions are explored through an iterative process in two studies that have used or resulted in three prototypes and one art exhibition. The first study is of communication practices in a global interest community, which resulted in two prototypes: Actory, a groupware that takes differences rather than equality as the starting point for a collaborative tool, and The Affect Machine, a social network where differences are used as a relational capital.

    Sammanfattning : In both the private and work spheres, multitasking among three or more activities has become and is continuing to evolve as a pervasive element of everyday life, and recent technological advances only seem to be exacerbating the process. Despite attempts to understand the mental processes that let humans successfully multitask, little is known about the functional cognitive level at which these mental processes take place. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Violence risk assessment in male and female mentally disordered offenders differences and similarities

    Detta är en avhandling från Sundsvall : Mid Sweden University

    Författare :Susanne Strand; Mittuniversitetet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap; Risk assessment; HCR-20; psychopathy; PCL:SV; female offenders; mentally disordered offenders; antisocial behavior; violent recidivism;

    Sammanfattning : When assessing the risk of violence, increasing interest has been shown in bringing science and practice closer together. Moving from clinical intuition in the first generation of risk assessment via actuarial scales in the second generation to the structured professional judgments where risk assessments are today produces better, more valid results when assessing the risk of violence.

  5. 5. The aging brain and changes in cognitive performance Findings from morphometry and quantitative susceptibility mapping of iron

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stokholm University

    Sammanfattning : Brain aging is a heterogeneous phenomenon, and this thesis illustrates how the course of aging can vary within individuals over time and between individuals as a function of age, sex, and genetic variability. We used two contrasts from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), namely spin-lattice T1-weighted imaging, and quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) from gradient-echo images, to picture the aging brain, by means of morphometric measures and brain-iron concentrations.
