Neurocognitive Mechanisms of Language Processing and Control in Early Bilinguals and Late Language Learners

Suzanne Hut

The ability to speak more than one language is nowadays commonly the rule, rather than the exception. Many forms of bilingualism exist, varying from early bilingualism in which more than one language is acquired in early childhood, to late bilingualism, where another language is not learned until adulthood. Although a large amount of research has been devoted to the question of how ...

Pyhä toimijuus : Miten sosiaalityön asiakkaat ja ammattilaiset asennoituvat alkoholinkäytön puheeksiottoon ja käyttöön liittyvään neuvontaan?

Elina Renko

Yksilön valinnanvapauden kunnioittaminen on länsimaisen nyky-yhteiskunnan kulmakivi ja ulkopuolelta tulevan alkoholinkäytön kontrollin mielletään herkästi loukkaavan tätä vapautta. Yleisen hyvinvoinnin edistämiseksi alkoholin ongelmakäyttöön tulisi kuitenkin puuttua mahdollisimman varhain; mitä aikaisemmin ongelmakäyttö tunnistetaan ja siihen puututaan, sitä pienemmiksi jäävät käytön ris...

Hyaluronic acid graft copolymers as potential vehicles for intravitreal drug delivery

Tina Borke

Water-soluble polymers are promising drug carrier materials. Especially polysaccharide graft copolymers are desirable for this purpose as they combine the favorable features of biopolymers, such as biocompatibility and biodegradability, with the controlled structure and functionality of synthetic polymers. This thesis examines water-soluble hyaluronic acid (HA) graft copolymers with clea...

Stability and analysis of solid-state forms in pharmaceutical powders

Tiina Lipiäinen

The solid-state form can directly affect the quality of a pharmaceutical product and solid-state transformations can lead to altered therapeutic effects. Formulation and manufacturing processes may impact the solid-state form and stability. There is a need to detect, quantify and control the solid-state behaviour during processes and storage. Reliable analytical methods are crucial. The ...

Adulthood atopic dermatitis : Focus on the skin barrier, epidemiology, and long-term outcome

Ville Kiiski

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common inflammatory skin disease characterized by impaired epidermal skin barrier and a mainly Th2 deviated immune profile. Filaggrin is an important protein of the skin barrier, and loss-of-function (null) mutations in the filaggrin gene (FLG) are the most significant genetic risk factor of AD. Genetic factors cannot explain the rapid increase of AD, and gene...

Linkages between carbon sequestration, soil fertility and hydrology in dryland Acacia senegal plantations of varying age in Sudan

Wafa Abaker

Drylands cover some 40% of the global land area and are extensively degraded, especially in Africa, as indicated by reduced soil organic matter (SOM) contents. The loss of SOM and associated ecosystem services (e.g. prevention of erosion, carbon sequestration, soil fertility and water retention), threaten the livelihood of local communities. Management practices that increase SOM content...

The entire Hebrew text of Samuel is known today only in its Masoretic text form, which is itself the result of a standardization process that began around the onset of the Common Era. Before this standardization process, the Hebrew text was evidently fluid, and several different textua...

Role of lipids and phytate in oxidative stability of cereal beta-glucan

Yujie Wang

β-Glucan (β-(1→3),(1→4)-D-glucan) is the major non-starch polysaccharide in oats and barley, and it is well-known due to its physiological and technological benefits, which are related to the ability to increase the luminal or solution viscosity. However, cereal β-glucan is susceptible to degradation during processing and storage, which may deteriorate the product stability and/or β-gluc...
