    Sammanfattning : In design of bridges and for estimation of dynamic properties and load carrying capacity Finite Element Method (FEM) is often used as a tool. The physical quantities used in the Finite Element (FE) model are often connected to varying degrees of uncertainty. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Train your brain : updating, transfer, and neural changes

    Författare :Erika Dahlin; Lars Nyberg; Anna Stigsdotter Neely; Torkel Klingberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; cognitive training; executive functioning; transfer; fMRI; brain system; young adults; elderly; practice; neural correlates; individual differences; Experimental brain research; Experimentell hjärnforskning; Cognitive science; Kognitionsforskning; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : An initial aim of this thesis was to determine whether training of a specific executive function (updating) produces improvements in performance on trained and transfer tasks, and whether the effects are maintained over time. Neural systems underlying training and transfer effects were also investigated and one question considered is whether transfer depends on general or specific neural overlap between training and transfer tasks.

  3. 3. Railway bridge response to passing trains : Measurements and FE model updating

    Författare :Johan Wiberg; Raid Karoumi; Lennart Elfgren; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : Today’s railway bridges are analysed in more detail for moving loads due to the increase in speeds and axle loads. However, these numerical analyses are very time consuming as they often involve many simulations using different train configurations passing at different speeds and many considerations to take into account.

  4. 4. Exploring Cognitive Spare Capacity : Executive Processing of Degraded Speech

    Författare :Sushmit Mishra; Mary Rudner; Stefan Stenfelt; Jerker Rönnberg; Thomas Lunner; Mithell S. Sommers; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Working memory; cognitive spare capacity; updating; inhibition; Arbetsminne; kognitiv reservkapacitet; uppdatering; inhibition;

    Sammanfattning : Cognitive resources, specifically working memory capacity are used for listening to speech, especially in noise. Cognitive resources are limited, and if listeners allocate a greater share of these resources to recovering the input signal in noise, fewer resources are available for interpreting and encoding its linguistic content.

  5. 5. Cognitive training in young and old adults : Transfer, long-term effects, and predictors of gain

    Författare :Petra Sandberg; Anna Stigsdotter Neeyl; Michael Rönnlund; Boo Johansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Cognitive training; aging; old adults; executive function; life-span; individual differences; episodic memory; inhibition; shifting; updating; cognitive control; strategy training; mnemonics; predictors; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Aging, also in the absence of pathological conditions, is associated with cognitivedecline, especially in so called fluid abilities, such as episodic memory andexecutive functions. Due to an ongoing demographic shift, a larger part of thepopulation will reach higher ages, and more people will be affected by age-relatedcognitive decline. LÄS MER
