  1. 1. Visual Flow Display for Pilot Spatial Orientation

    Author : Lars Eriksson; Claes von Hofsten; David Lee; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Optic flow; visual flow; peripheral vision; spatial orientation; spatial disorientation; postural control; somatogravic illusion; human centrifuge; flight displays; head-up display; head-mounted display; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Pilot spatial disorientation (SD) is a significant cause of incidents and fatal accidents in aviation. The pilot is susceptible to SD especially in low visibility when the visual system is deprived of information from outside the cockpit. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. Metacognition and Confidence : Mood, Individual Differences, Developmental and Social Aspects

    Author : Anna-Carin Jonsson; Institutionen för psykologi; []

  4. 4. Child molesters and children as witnesses : spatial behaviour, modus operandi and memory recall

    Author : Jessica Ebberline; Carl Martin Allwood; Ulf Holmberg; Pekka Santtila; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Geographical offender profiling; spatial behaviour; modus operandi; memory recall; Psychology; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Dragnet; child molesters; geographical profiling; Modus operandi; confidence; child witnesses; accuracy;

    Abstract : Offenders who target children are a negative phenomenon in our society. These offenders are often seen as the worst of the worst of criminals and are therefore a priority for investigators trying to solve these crimes as fast as possible. READ MORE

  5. 5. Getting a Feel for Tactile Space : Exploring Haptic Perception of Microtexture

    Author : Martin Arvidsson; Birgitta Berglund; Steven Hsiao; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Haptic; fine texture perception; multidimensional scaling; tactile; roughness; vibrations; spatial; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : The present thesis is based on three studies that research different aspects of fine texture perception. The goal is to better understand the mechanisms involved in haptic perception of textures below 200 µm, also known as microtextures. READ MORE
