Développement de la mémoire de travail et aide au maintien du but : Investigation du rôle joué par l'indiçage du but dans le fonctionnement de la mémoire de travail verbale chez les enfants de 4 à 9 ans

Fitamen, Christophe ; Camos, Valérie (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2019.

Crucial in learning, especially academic learning, working memory develops with age during childhood. This thesis aims to broaden our knowledge of working memory functioning development between the preschool period and the school period. Previous studies have shown that goal neglect contributed to kindergarteners’ poor executive control. Hence, presenting goal cues during a task improves...

From Asia to Europe : evaluation of parasitoids for the biological control of the invasive fruit pest "Drosophila suzukii"

Girod, Pierre ; Turlings, Ted (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Agricultural processes are constantly improved to improve crop yields. However, 40% of crop productions are currently lost to pests each year. Insect pests are one of the main factors of these losses and their management is one of the top priorities that researchers are facing worldwide. An important part of these losses are caused by pest with alien origins. Globalization and climate change...

Advances in characterizing surface water-groundwater interactions : combining unconventional data with complex, fully-integrated models

Schilling, Oliver S. ; Brunner, Philip (Dir.) ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

The characterization and simulation of the interactions between surface water and groundwater require observations of hydrological state variables and flow processes. While the latest generation of physically-based flow models allows the integrated simulation of all relevant hydrological processes, the current modelling practice is not adequate to provide reliable predictions. Numerous studies...

De la coutume au code : résistances à la codification du droit civil à Neuchâtel sous l'Ancien Régime

Wyssbrod, Adrien ; Christin, Olivier (Dir.) ; Dunand, Jean-Philippe (Codir.) ; Chaix, Gérald (Codir.) ; Tappy, Denis (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Despite a seemingly strong desire to codify, successive princes of Neuchâtel were unable to get this custom written. Their dreams of codifications were totaly in accordance with the ideas of the Enlightenment and the sovereigns were supported by philosophers. Why, in a small principality like...
