This volume brings together about twenty contributions on the syntax and semantics of predicates and arguments, written by international specialists in the field. The formal architecture of the predicate (verbal and nominal) and the morpho-syntactic means of marking its arguments are addressed, with particular attention to the dative. This book is mainly focused on French, while putting it in perspective with other languages, Romance (Spanish, Romanian), Germanic (Dutch, English) and Slavic (Russian), not to mention...
The Role of Time-Varying Price Elasticities in Accounting for Volatility Changes in the Crude Oil MarketChristiane Baumeister & Gert Peersman
There has been a systematic increase in the volatility of the real price of crude oil since 1986, followed by a decline in the volatility of oil production since the early 1990s. We explore reasons for this evolution. We show that a likely explanation of this empirical fact is that both the short-run price elasticities of oil demand and of oil supply have declined considerably since the second half of the 1980s. This implies that...
This dataset was used to investigate the association of volumes of habitual sedentary time and prolonged sedentary time, measured with a thigh-worn accelerometer, with a wide range of executive functions and short-term memory in 7th and 8th grade adolescents.
The current study, that is the subject of a master dissertation, is part of a larger ongoing project on the role catecholamines such as noradrenaline and dopamine. This thesis will specifically focus on the contribution of noradrenaline to patch leaving decisions in a foraging context, and will test a specific set of hypotheses. In order to maximise reward, organisms constantly have to balance what is commonly referred to as the trade-off between exploitation (of known...
Our key question is whether people will accurately predict our results received in the study about moral conformity (see preregistration: https://osf.io/832eq).
