  1. 1. Embodied psychoacoustics: Spatial and multisensory determinants of auditory-induced emotion

    Author : Ana Tajadura; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ecological psychoacoustics; multisensory perception; emoacoustics; vibrotactile; auditory-induced emotion; embodiment; peripersonal space; self-representation;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis focuses on auditory perception, bringing together traditional psychoacoustics, emotion, embodiment and multisensory research. In particular, the current research explored how sound, and the interpretation the listener makes of it, induces emotions in people. READ MORE

  2. 2. Football on mobile phones : algorithms, architectures and quality of experience in streaming video

  5. 5. Nerve conduction and vibrotactile perception thresholds in female computer workers and hand-arm vibration-exposed male manual workers

    Author : Helena Sandén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Computer use; Hand-arm vibration; Chronic upper limb pain; Nerve conduction; Vibrotactile perception threshold; Mood; Bicycle ergometer test; Temperature;

    Abstract : Upper limb pain and disability are common problems, especially among working populations. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate peripheral nerve function in the upper limb by nerve conduction test and vibration threshold test in working populations including female computer users (n = 82), hand-arm vibration-exposed male manual workers (n = 116), and female workers with chronic diffuse upper limb pain (n = 35).
