  1. 1. Priming of carbon and nitrogen mineralization in forest soils

    University dissertation from Biologiska institutionen, Lunds universitet

    Author : Saeed Alaei; [2019-01]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soil organic matter; C:N imbalance; root exudates; priming; Extracellular enzymes; Soil organic matter; C:N imbalance; root exudates; priming; Extracellular enzymes;

    Abstract : Decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) contributes significantly to the global carbon (C) cycle and climate feedbacks. SOM decomposition depends on soil microbial activities, and these activities are driven by the availability of C and other nutrients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Eliciting information in intelligence interviews through priming: An examination of underlying mechanisms

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Psykologiska institutionen, Göteborgs universitet

    Author : David Amon Neequaye; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; disclosure; priming; helpfulness; investigative interviewing; human intelligence gathering;

    Abstract : An emerging body of research in human intelligence interviewing suggests that subtle influence tactics, such as priming, could be used to increase informants’ disclosure of sensitive information. However, the mechanisms that elicit such subtle influences on disclosure are not fully understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sacred Games - Becoming Gods Priming digital game ethics

    University dissertation from Karlshamn : Blekinge Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Anders Falk; Lena Trojer; Jenny Brusk; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Digitisation; digital games; media-technologies; medium; game ethics  Rite of passage; Agential cut; difference; rhizome; feminist technoscience; technoscience ;

    Abstract : The point of departure for my research is a perceived breach and resulting dissonance between how digital games and other parts of society that are similar in form, enact certain aspects of life. This shift was made especially clear in massive multiplayer games in 2004 with the release of World of Warcraft, the design of which panders to cultural weak points, rather than attempting to mimic them.

  4. 4. The oxidative metabolism by eosinophils Effects of allergen exposure and interleukin-5

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Charlotte Woschnagg; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Eosinophils; allergy; asthma; rhinitis; oxidative metabolism; IL-5; priming; signal transduction; protein phosphorylation; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis the oxidative metabolism by blood eosinophils from birch pollen allergic subjects was studied and compared to that by eosinophils from healthy controls, during and out of the pollen season. The effects and mechanisms of in vitro IL-5 priming on blood eosinophils were investigated and compared to the effects of in vivo priming during pollen exposure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Identification of galectins as novel inflammatory mediators

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Jenny Almkvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human neutrophils; NADPH-oxidase; Galectin-1; Galectin-3; priming; degranulation;

    Abstract : The human neutrophils play important roles in the host defence against invading microorganisms. To eliminate bacteria or other invaders the neutrophils have to leave the bloodstream and cross the endothelium, migrate through the extracellular matrix towards the site of infection and phagocytose the prey to ultimately kill it.
