Hroníková, Linda ; Škvařilová, Božena (advisor) ; Popelka, Miroslav (referee) ; Tichý, Radomír (referee)
This doctoral thesis focuses on the microwear analysis applied to the neolitic chipped stone industry from the archeological sites Bylany, Miskovice, Mšeno and Tachlovice.
Self-esteem and body image in relation to somatotypes
Kernerová, Anna ; Pivoňková, Věra (advisor) ; Hroníková, Linda (referee)
This thesis focuses on the relationship between body image and somatotypes in the young Czech student population. Previous studies have shown a relationship between body image and BMI, notwithstanding, somatotypes describe body morphology in a more detailed way. Somatotypes describe the amount of body fat (endomorphy), the amount of muscle mass and the robustness of bones (mesomorphy), and the length of arms and legs relative to the rest of the body (ectomorphy). Seventy-one women and seventy men participated in our study. They completed a battery of questionnaires (The Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire; The Body Figure Scale of Dosedlová et al., 2008; Rosengerg's self-esteem scale; State-Trait Anxiety Inventory - T; and Beck's Depression Inventory - II). Then they underwent an anthropometric measure of somatotype components (endomorphy, mesomorphy, and ectomorphy) according to Carter and Heath's anthropometric method and were assigned to a certain somatotype. In our sample, there were 5 somatotypes in men (endomorph, mesomorph, ectomorphic mesomorph, mesomorph-ectomorph and ectomorph) and 6 somatotypes in women (endomorph, endomorph- mesomoroph, mesomorph, mesomorph-ectomorph, ectomorph and the central type). The questionnaires' scores were then statistically compared between...
Lithic function and its application in archeology
Krásná, Soňa ; Popelka, Miroslav (advisor) ; Květina, Petr (referee) ; Hroníková, Linda (referee)
The goal of the thesis is to find the way how to apply use-wear analysis as well as functional analysis to archaeological assemblages of selected artefacts from Central European archaeological contexts, namely lithics (chipped stone artefacts) and obtain the greatest potential from the analysis. Thesis consists of: current state in the field of functional studies research worldwide, method of use-wear application in connection with material science knowledge, especially tribology. Use-wear analysis is applied to the selected lithic artefacts from Paleolithic to Eneolithic Periods. The results of this work are based on the following microscopic approaches: low power approach (LPA), high power approach (HPA), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). There are described and stated differences in potential of above mentioned approaches in connection with specific archaeological artefacts (assemblages of artefacts). The question answered in the conclusion is how to apply the above mentioned methodological approaches in application to various archaeological materials (period, number, context etc.) to obtain the greatest informational potential from the material analysed. Work is concluded with specific terminology from the field of tribology and use-wear analysis...
Changes in Hormone Levels in Female Basketball Players and Their Relationship with Emotional state and Efficiency
Zikánová, Tereza ; Pivoňková, Věra (advisor) ; Hroníková, Linda (referee)
This thesis focuses on women's competition in female basketball players and their hormonal responses to winning and losing. We tested saliva samples of 29 female players for testosterone and cortisol which were collected in three phases: baseline samples, pregame samples and after game samples. In every collection phase we also inquired about the emotional state of mind of the respondents. Players completed a survey examining their subjective evaluation of the match result. We also used statistical data from every match, which provided an objective evidence on the players' usefulness. All the aforementioned variables were examined in relation to the testosterone and cortisol levels. The results have revealed that the cortisol levels are responsive to the match results, whereas the losing players display a significant rise of the stress hormone level after the match. The winners display only a slight increase in the cortisol levels. Testosterone levels did not prove to react to the match results. However, it was discovered that the winners exhibited higher levels of testosterone in all collection phases than their competitors. Nevertheless, the difference between the winners and the losers was not significant in any of the cases. The winners felt more positive after the match than the losers. The correlation...
