  1. 11. Traditional lime mortar and plaster : Reconstruction with emphasis on durability

    Author : Kristin Balksten; Tor Broström; Britt-Marie Steenari; Thorborg Konow von; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lime plaster; lime mortar; masonry; craftsmanship; pore structure; frost resistance; historic mortar; Conservation HGO ; Kulturvård HGO ;

    Abstract : Lime mortar and plaster have been investigated with the aim to improve the knowledge on how to make them as durable as before the cement technology was developed. The background was the durability problems experienced for newly produced lime plaster on the medieval churches on the island of Gotland, Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 12. The Rarebit fovea test : a new measure of visual function

    Author : Maria Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Rarebit Fovea Test; Rarebit Perimetry; foveal function; fixation; diabetes; cataract; binocular summation;

    Abstract : Visual acuity (VA) measurement by the use of letter charts is the most frequently used method for testing foveal function. However, since a decimal visual acuity of 1. READ MORE

  3. 13. Perceptual Surface Reconstruction

    Author : Jens Månsson; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; system; kontroll; Psychology; Psykologi; numerisk analys; Datalogi; systems; control; numerical analysis; Surface; Contour; Depth; Vision; Binocular; Computer science;

    Abstract : How does the brain transform the 2-D light arrays in our eyes into a meaningful 3-D description of surfaces around us? What assumptions does the visual system make about the world when information is incomplete? And how are these assumptions computationally expressed in this perceptual reconstruction process? These questions, and other aspects of binocular depth perception are analysed from a theoretical and computational perspective, as well as through empirical investigations. In paper one, the fundamentals of stereopsis are briefly reviewed, and the difficulties related with resolving the (stereo) correspondence problem are particularly discussed. READ MORE

  4. 14. Human periodontal mechanoreceptors : functional properties and role in jaw motor control

    Author : Skjalg E Johnsen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Periodontal mechanoreceptors signal information about tooth loads to the central nervous system and are considered to be important for the control of oral motor behaviors, like biting and chewing. Surprisingly, very little is known about the functional properties of periodontal mechanoreceptors at posterior teeth. READ MORE

  5. 15. Decision-making and risk responsibility related to the use of food biotechnology

    Author : Ashkan Pakseresht; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis contributes to knowledge about consumer decision-making and risk perception related to the use of biotechnology in food production. Paper I presents a meta-analysis that examined the systematic evidence from existing research on consumers’ evaluation of biotechnology in food products. READ MORE
