Birth weight and long-term outcomes in a developing country

Baguet, Marie ; Dumas, Christelle

(Working Papers SES ; 465)

This paper analyzes the empirical relationship between endowment at birth and long-term outcomes. Birth weight has been shown to influence outcomes later in life, suggesting that in-utero shocks have long lasting consequences. However, traditional measures of human capital at birth (i.e. birth weight) are potentially measured with error and endogenous. We deal with such issues thanks to the use...

Optimal social insurance and health inequality

Grossmann, Volker ; Strulik, Holger

(Working Papers SES ; 464)

This paper integrates into public economics a biologically founded, stochastic process of individual ageing. The novel approach enables us to investigate the interaction between health and retirement policy in order to quantitatively characterize the optimal joint design of the social insurance system today and in response to future medical progress, and its implications for health inequality....

Le « Dieu du carnage » pourrait-il être apaisé ? : Le paradigme de la médiation à l’épreuve du film de Polanski

Bevilacqua, Alain ; Studer, Florence (Dir.)

Mémoire de Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) : Université de Fribourg, 2015.

La pratique de la médiation entre parties en conflit s’appuie souvent sur l’échelle de conflit de Glasl (comportant 9 degrés d’escalade répartis en 3 phases principales) pour juger de la pertinence d’une intervention par un tiers facilitateur tel qu’un médiateur. Ces dernières années, un consensus s’est formé pour affirmer qu’un conflit en phase extrême n’est pas propice...

Visualization of polymer deformation using microcapsules filled with charge-transfer complex precursors

Lavrenova, Anna ; Farkas Jacob ; Weder, Christoph ; Simon, Yoan C.

In: ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, 2015, vol. 7, no. 39, p. 21828–21834

The visualization of polymer deformation using microcapsules filled with charge-transfer complex precursors is reported. Poly(urea-formaldehyde) microcapsules filled with toluene and either hexamethylbenzene as donor or chloranil as acceptor were prepared by in situ polymerization of an oil-in-water emulsion. The resulting microcapsules were incorporated in a poly(dimethylsiloxane) matrix by...

Psychological adjustment to lung transplantation

Seiler, Annina Julia ; Martin Soelch, Chantal (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2015.

Lung transplantation (LTx) is an effective treatment for end-stage lung failure. Despite great advances in transplant medicine over the last few decades, LTx does not result in complete recovery of health, as transplant recipients continue to be confronted by various health problems that must be psychologically processed and overcome. Many suffer from frequent emotional distress and psychological...

Evolution développementale des mécanismes de maintien de l'information verbale en mémoire de travail entre 6 et 9 ans

Oftinger, Anne-Laure ; Camos, Valérie (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2015.

La mémoire de travail permet le stockage temporaire d'informations et leur traitement. Pour maintenir de l’information verbale en mémoire de travail nous utilisons, en tant qu’adulte, deux mécanismes, la répétition articulatoire et le rafraîchissement attentionnel. Nous sommes capables d’utiliser ces deux mécanismes indépendamment et de façon additive. Les enfants utiliseraient ces...

In: Physical Review Letters, 2015, vol. 115, no. 16, p. 162502

We describe a spin-echo method for ultracold neutrons (UCNs) confined in a precession chamber and exposed to a |B0|=1 μT magnetic field. We have demonstrated that the analysis of UCN spin-echo resonance signals in combination with knowledge of the ambient magnetic field provides an excellent method by which to reconstruct the energy spectrum of a confined ensemble of neutrons. The method...
