    Abstract : The aim of the current thesis is to investigate the conceptualisation of giftedness in educational discourse within Sweden. In the thesis, this is studied through an account of giftedness and the ’formation of the gifted subject’. READ MORE

  2. 2. Single fluid inclusion analysis using ToF-SIMS : Implications for ancient Earth biodiversiy and paleoenvironment studies

    Author : Sandra Siljeström; Jukka Lausmaa; Andrew Steele; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ToF-SIMS; time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry; fluid inclusions; biomarkers; hopanes; steranes; early life; paleoenvironment; oil; eukaryotes; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : When and how life first emerged on the Earth is an area of intense research. Signs of the first life on Earth, including morphological fossils, are scarce and hard to interpret. An alternative approach is to study organic biomarkers, which are molecular fossils commonly considered as bona fide biosignatures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dissociative recombination of organic molecular ions of relevance for interstellar clouds and Titan's upper atmosphere

    Author : Erik Vigren; Wolf D. Geppert; Ian Sims; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dissociative recombination; Astrochemistry; Physics; Fysik; kemisk fysik; Chemical Physics;

    Abstract : This thesis presents experimental studies on the dissociative recombination (DR) of the organic molecular ions CD3CND+, CH2CHCNH+, CH3CH2CNH+, CD3CDO+, CH3CHO+ and DCOOD2+. The experiments were all performed at the heavy ion storage ring CRYRING at the Manne Siegbahn Laboratory in Stockholm, Sweden. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spatial analysis of lipids in tissue samples applying mass spectrometry imaging

    Author : Masoumeh Dowlatshahi Pour; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SIMS; MALDI; Mass spectrometry imaging; Lipid; ME-SIMS; Sample preparation;

    Abstract : Lipids are important naturally occurring components in all living cellular organisms. They serve as the main building blocks of cellular membranes, participate in many signaling pathways and are also stored as an energy source. READ MORE

  5. 5. Values in Play – Interactional Life with the Sims

    Author : Louise Peterson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; open-ended games; sandbox games; game play; The Sims; interaction analysis; video analysis; sociocultural theory; fantasy and creativity; role distance; learning; values;

    Abstract : This study arises from pedagogical discussion about learning potential with computer games – more precisely, that one game genre called open-ended (sandbox) games can make players explore the game content in such a way that they learn about a specific content or phenomenon while playing. These arguments are strong in the constructionist tradition but are seldom backed up by empirical results. READ MORE
