Empirical Essays on Preference Formation and Economic Decision Making

Tyahlo, Svitlana ; Eichenberger, Reiner (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

This dissertation consists of four independent papers on economically relevant topics that cap- tured my attention because of personal background and professional experiences, such as coming from Ukraine, being an educated woman, living in a bilingual Swiss region and observing people delaying their work. Throughout my papers, I empirically analyze the determinants of individual attitudes ...

Design, synthesis and in vivo evaluation of 3-arylcoumarin derivatives of rhenium(I) tricarbonyl complexes as potent antibacterial agents against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

Sovari, Sara Nasiri ; Vojnovic, Sandra ; Bogojevic, Sanja Skaro ; Crochet, Aurelien ; Pavic, Aleksandar ; Nikodinovic-Runic, Jasmina ; Zobi, Fabio

In: European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2020, vol. 205, p. 112533

We have prepared a series of ten 3-arylcoumarin molecules, their respective fac- [Re(CO)3(bpy)L]+ and fac-[Re(CO)3(L⁀L)Br] complexes and tested all compounds for their antimicrobial efficacy. Whereas the 3-arylcoumarin ligands are virtually inactive against the human-associated pathogens with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) > 150 μM, when coordinated to the fac-[Re(CO)3]+ core,...

Better roads, better off? : Evidence on improving roads in Tanzania

Dumas, Christelle ; Játiva, Ximena

(Working Papers SES ; 518)

Spatial isolation is considered as one of the main determinants of poverty. Therefore, many transport investments are undertaken with a stated objective of poverty reduction. In our paper, we evaluate a Tanzanian program that rehabilitated 2500km of major roads between 2008 and 2013. We deal with endogenous placement issues with a household fixed-effect strategy combined with a propensity score...

Les centres de loisirs lausannois : Des tensions entre 1971 et 1982

Rosselat, Fabrice

Mémoire de bachelor : Université de Fribourg, 2018.

L'attitude des adultes envers les jeunes oscille entre volonté d'encadrement et promotion de leur autonomie. L'histoire des centres de loisirs de Lausanne constitue un très bon exemple de cette ambivalence, car leur fonctionnement incarne différentes visions de la jeunesse et du rôles des autorités à leur égard. La recherche s'intéresse tout particulièrement aux débats qui ont marqué...

Does long-term memory affect refreshing in verbal working memory?

Camos, Valerie ; Mora, Gérôme ; Oftinger, Anne-Laure ; Mariz Elsig, Stéphanie ; Schneider, Philippe ; Vergauwe, Evie

In: Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition, 2019, vol. 45, no. 9, p. 1664-1682

Attentional refreshing allows the maintenance of information in working memory and has received growing interest in recent years. However, it is still ill-defined and several proposals have been put forward to account for its functioning. Among them, some proposals suggest that refreshing relies on the retrieval of knowledge from semantic long-term memory. To examine such a proposal, the present...
