  2. 2. Individual Preferences, Choices, and Risk Perceptions - survey based evidence

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Elina Lampi; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]

    Abstract : Paper 1 investigates how birth order and having siblings affect positional concerns in terms of success at work and of income. We find that only-children are the most positional, but that number of siblings increases the concern for their position among those who grew up together with siblings. READ MORE

  5. 5. The genetics of experimental arthritis in rodents

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Michael Förster; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Unravelling the genetic susceptibility to complex autoimmune diseases and understanding these pathologies on a mechanistic level are major obstacles to improve our possibilities for therapeutic intervention and an increase in the quality of life of affected patients. Studies in experimental rodent models, that can be run under stable environmental conditions, which itself can be subjected to experimental manipulation, and in cohorts of potentially unlimited size, hold significant promise for the understanding of genes and pathways involved in complex autoimmune diseases.
