    Author : Niklas Karlsson; Umeå University; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; labour supply; quantity constraint; perceived tax scale; duration; specification test; distribution;

    Abstract : Estimation and testing in labour supply and unemployment duration models are studied. In the first two papers estimation techniques designed to account for quantity constraints and perceived tax scales are developed, while the remaining three papers focus on specification tests.

  2. 2. Exploring models of time processing : effects of training and modality, and the relationship with cognition in rhythmic motor tasks

    Author : Olympia Karampela; Guy Madison; Linus Holm; Fredrik Ullén; Simon Grondin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; timing; motor timing; cogntion; dedicated models; intrinsic models; timing variability;

    Abstract : Timing can be defined as the ability to perceive temporal sequences and regulate timed behaviors. As in other animals, our ability to make accurate time estimations is crucial in order to accomplish several activities. Organisms can process time over a wide range of durations ranging from microseconds to days. READ MORE

    Abstract : This dissertation focuses on cognitive development. In papers I and II, I study a special model, the second order latent growth curve model, that can be used to study cognitive development. Algebraic expressions for the variance of the estimation of slope differences are given. READ MORE
