Methodological innovations in psychological research
Frollová, Nikola ; Vranka, Marek (advisor) ; Fabianová, Ivana (referee)
The year 2012 opened an intense debate about the methodological problems of psychological research that lead to excessive publication of unreliable and nonreplicable results. The proposed improvements consist of conducting more replication studies, sharing data openly, limiting the "degrees of researcher freedom ", and improving the understanding and application of statistical methods for data analysis. This bachelor thesis aims to map the aforementioned problems, proposed solutions, as well as possible criticisms and problems with their implementation in practice. The research proposal consists of measuring the prevalence of questionable scientific practices among psychologists in Czech Republic.
From adenoma to colorectal cancer: The study of DNA methylation profiles
Fabianová, Ivana ; Vymetálková, Veronika (advisor) ; Šmahel, Michal (referee)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major public health problem worldwide and is one of the most common types of cancer in advanced countries. Recent statistics still present that the Czech Republic has a high incidence of CRC worldwide, especially in Czech men. CRC is known to be a disease that is caused not only by genetic and chromosomal abnormalities but also by epigenetic changes with the best-known DNA methylation. Changes in DNA methylation are the most prominent mechanisms that alter gene expression. Loss of gene function by epigenetic silencing of critical genes plays a key role in the development and progression of sporadic human tumors, including CRC. CRC usually develops from a harmless protrusion, known as an adenoma. However, little is known about the exact timing of DNA methylation changes in the transition from a healthy colon, through an adenoma to a malignant state. This bachelor thesis aims to summarize in detail the aberrant changes in DNA methylation in people with adenoma and in patients with CRC and at the same time to summarize the currently used methods of DNA methylation detection. Keywords: colorectal cancer, DNA methylation, adenoma, CpG island methylation phenotype, hypermethylation, hypomethylation
The effect of sociomapping based team coaching
Fabianová, Ivana ; Bahbouh, Radvan (advisor) ; Buriánek, Jiří (referee) ; Höschlová, Eva (referee)
(in English): This dissertation seeks to verify the impact of sociomapping-supported team coaching on team climate and performance. Sociomapping, created in the 1990s to visualize team communication, plays here a role simultaneously as the main diagnostic and intervention tool. The theoretical part focuses on the teams and psychological analysis of such team aspects as size, roles, composition and the formation and development of teamwork. Attention is further paid to team coaching and sociomapping-based intervention. One chapter analyzes the relevant team processes according to available concepts, with a subsequent analysis of team performance and climate as two teamwork outputs relevant to the study. Due to the specificity of team data analysis, the last chapter discusses teamwork analysis models. The empirical part presents a study of 103 respondents divided into and conducted on nine intervention and 12 control teams. The teams worked together on team projects for about three months. The intervention groups were supported by team coaching that involved sociomapping, while the control groups only attended meetings to discuss current work topics. The teams in both the control and intervention groups were sociomapped a total of three times, but only the intervention teams were presented with these...
