Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction: Prevalence, laryngeal findings and evaluation of treatment
Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is one of many different causes for adolescents to experience dyspnoea during exercise. Objective exercise-testing with continuous video laryngoscopy is crucial for a correct diagnosis since it is difficult to differentiate EILO from other exercise related conditions in the airways only on the symptomatology.

Static and time-dependent mechanical behaviour of preserved archaeological wood: Case studies of the seventeenth century warship Vasa
Wooden objects have been widely used in the history of humanity and play an important role in our cultural heritage. The preservation of such objects is of great importance and can be a challenging task. This thesis investigates the static and time-dependent mechanical behaviour of archaeological oak wood from the Vasa warship.

A Cross-Cultural Approach to Psychological Mechanisms Underlying Emotional Reactions to Music
Music plays a crucial role in everyday life by enabling listeners to seek individual emotional experiences. To explain why such emotions occur, we must understand the underlying process that mediates between surface-level features of the music and aroused emotions. This thesis aimed to investigate how musical emotions are mediated by psychological mechanisms from a cross-cultural perspective.

The Origin of Tooth Replacement: Three-dimensional Synchrotron Histology Visualizes the Dental Development of Silurian Stem Osteichthyans
Mechanisms of tooth replacement distribute incongruently among extant gnathostomes (jawed vertebrates): a permanent tooth-generating dental lamina exists in chondrichthyans (cartilaginous fish) and tetrapods but not teleosts, whereas tooth shedding by basal hard tissue resorption occurs in tetrapods and teleosts but not chondrichthyans.

Annealing of Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 Thin Films: A Study of Secondary Compounds and Their Effects on Solar Cells
Kesterite Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) is interesting as a sustainable photovoltaic technology due to its earth-abundant elements and suitable semiconducting properties. To date, a record efficiency of 12.6% has been achieved but further improvements are required to reach high efficiency for industrial implementation.
