Final discussion and looking forward

The current book provides an extensive view of theoretical and methodological approaches in autobiographical memory research. Chapters in this volume elucidate research findings and theoretical ideas for various aspects of autobiographical memory development. At the same time, they bring out the gaps and limitations in our understanding of how children begin to form a memory of experienced events that are linked to their selves, and how as adults, our memory of our childhood is molded by our experiences and the context of reminiscing about these events. We discuss here a number of limitations and unanswered questions with the expectation and prediction that these will be topics of inquiry in the near future.


Risky Play in Early Childhood Education: A Risk Worth Taking
Yalçın, Fatma; Erden, Feyza (2018-12-01)
This paper aimed to present a literature review, examine relevant studies and present their common aims and findings. Based on this review, the study also intended to discuss and evaluate the current status of risky play in Turkish early childhood education. The literature was chosen through online sources, including several books, reports and many articles in the journals. A comprehensive research was conducted through data bases including ERIC, SCOPUS, ULAKBIM and Complementary Index using the key words s...
Stochastic optimal control theory: new applications to finance and insurance
Akdoğan, Emre; Yolcu Okur, Yeliz; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Department of Financial Mathematics (2017)
In this study, the literature, recent developments and new achievements in stochastic optimal control theory are studied. Stochastic optimal control theory is an important direction of mathematical optimization for deriving control policies subject to timedependent processes whose dynamics follow stochastic differential equations. In this study, this methodology is used to deal with those infinite-dimensional optimization programs for problems from finance and insurance that are indeed motivated by the real l...
Material Processuality: Alternative Grounds for Design Research
Tönük Kruıthof, Damla (Informa UK Limited, 2020-01-01)
This article opens discussion on the positivist epistemology underlying the understandings of materials in design research that have been brought along as a result of theory and methods inherited from engineering and psychology. Examining the ambitions of work that seeks to operationalize knowledge created by these methods in the design process, we propose that attending to the processuality of material forms is a more adequate way for design research to capture the multiplicity of materials. We develop thi...
Rational choice theory: its merits and limits in explaining and predicting cultural behavior
Kılınç Adanalı, Yurdagül; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2016)
The main goal of this dissertation is to examine whether instrumental rationality can predict and explain successfully human behavior in all walks of life. I have chosen Rational Choice Theory and Public Choice Theory as the focus of my investigation, since they are considered as the best models of instrumental rationality in philosophy and social sciences, and in particular in economics and politics. To see their merits and to determine their limits, I have applied Rational Choice Theory and Public Choice ...
Almost Periodic Solutions of Recurrent Neural Networks with State-Dependent and Structured Impulses
Akhmet, Marat; Erim, Gülbahar (2023-01-01)
The subject of the present paper is recurrent neural networks with variable impulsive moments. The impact activation functions are specified such that the structure for the jump equations are in full accordance with that one for the differential equation. The system studied in this paper covers the works done before, not only because the impacts have recurrent form, but also impulses are not state-dependent. The conditions for existence and uniqueness of asymptotically stable discontinuous almost periodic s...
