  1. 1. Human Pheromones Psychological and Neurological Modulation of a Putative Human Pheromone

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan N. Lundström; Mats J. Olsson; Noam Sobel; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Pheromones; Odor; Olfaction; Sensitivity; Psychophysiology; Attention; ERP; Mood; Androstadienone; Estratetraenol; Bimodal distribution; Speed of processing; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : The notion that humans have specialized chemicals used for communication between conspecifics, so-called pheromones, has attracted much attention and discussion. This thesis demonstrates in four separate studies that a human endogenous steroidal compound that is abundant in male sweat, androstadienone, affects women in several ways that differ to that of common odors.

  2. 2. Human-centred automation with application to the fighter aircraft domain

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Tove Helldin; Göran Falkman; Lars Niklasson; Amy Loutfi; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human-centred automation; fighter aircraft; design guidelines; situation awareness; information fusion; decision support.; Människo-centrerad automation; stridsflyg; designriktlinjer; situationsuppfattning; informationsfusion; beslutsstöd; Computer and Systems Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : The working situation of fighter pilots is often very challenging. The pilots are requested to perform their tasks and make decisions in situations characterised by time-pressure, huge amounts of data and high workload, knowing that wrong decisions might result in fatal consequences.

  3. 3. A Helping Hand On Innovations for Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mats Nilsson; Hans von Holst; Metin Akay; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hand function; Mechatronic system; Orthose; Neurological rehabilitation; Brain-Computer Interface; Functional Electric Stimulation;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on assistive and rehabilitation technology for restoring the function of the hand. It presents three different approaches to assistive technology: one in the form of an orthosis, one in the form of a brain-computer interface combined with functional electrical stimulation and finally one totally aiming at rehabilitating the nervous system by restoring brain function using the concept of neuroplasticity.

  5. 5. To grip and not to slip sensorimotor mechanisms in reactive control of grasp stability

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Charlotte Häger Ross; Roland S. Johansson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human; hand; precision grip; grasp force; friction; cutaneous mechanoreceptors; sensorimotor integration; motor control;

    Abstract : The reactive control of fingertip forces maintaining grasp stability was examined in man during a prehensile task. Blindfolded subjects used the precision grip between the tips of index finger and thumb to restrain an object that was subjected to unpredictable load forces. These were delivered tangential to the parallel grip surfaces of the object. READ MORE
