  1. 1. Making Head or Tail of the Hippocampus : A Long-Axis Account of Episodic and Spatial Memory

    Author : Jonas Persson; Hedvig Söderlund; Tomas Furmark; Asaf Gilboa; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hippocampus; fMRI; episodic memory; spatial memory; gender differences; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : While episodic and spatial memory both depend on the hippocampus, opposite gender differences in these functions suggest they are partly separate, with different neural underpinnings. The anterior and posterior hippocampus differ  in structure and whole-brain connectivity, and studies point to the posterior hippocampus being more involved in spatial memory while the anterior hippocampus’ role in episodic memory is less clear.

  2. 2. Reducing Long Tail Latencies in Geo-Distributed Systems

    Author : Kirill Bogdanov; Dejan Kostic; Gerald Q. Maguire Jr.; Marc Shapiro; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cloud Computing; Geo-Distributed Systems; Replica Selection Algorithms; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : Computing services are highly integrated into modern society. Millions of people rely on these services daily for communication, coordination, trading, and accessing to information. To meet high demands, many popular services are implemented and deployed as geo-distributed applications on top of third party virtualized cloud providers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Criminal Careers in the Long Run : Patterns and Predictions of Criminal Convictions across Age, Time, and Gender

    Author : Fredrik Sivertsson; Anders Nilsson; Olof Bäckman; Torbjørn Skardhamar; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Criminal career; Recidivism; Life course; Longitudinal; Birth cohort; Gender; kriminologi; Criminology;

    Abstract : Why is it that a small proportion of the population accounts for the majority of crime? This question has stimulated a great deal of theoretical and methodological controversy in criminology. In essence, the debate is rooted in different theoretical underpinnings of continuity and change in crime, and the extent to which it is possible to foresee a life of crime by zeroing in on at-risk juvenile offenders.

  4. 4. Birds in the Flow: Flight Mechanics, Wake Dynamics and Flight Performance

    Author : Mikael Rosén; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Eleonora s falcon.; hunting; optimum wingspan; tail posture; wingbeat kinematics; wake topology; DPIV; flight performance; wake dynamics; flight mechanics; wind tunnel; Flight; bird;

    Abstract : I share my fascination of bird flight with many others, and here I summarise my thesis on the subject. This thesis emphasises the mechanics of bird flight by focusing on flight mechanics, wake dynamics and flight performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. A tale of tails : prevention of tail biting by early detection and straw management

    Author : Torun Wallgren; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : -Pigs in their natural environment spend the majority of their time exploring their surroundings through rooting, sniffing and chewing to find food and resting places. Rooting under commercial conditions is often fully dependent on the provision of rooting material. READ MORE
