  1. 1. On the influence of dopamine-related genetic variation on dopamine-related disorders

    Author : Olle Bergman; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; dopamine; neurodevelopment; amygdala; schizophrenia; Parkinson s disease; social anxiety disorder; ADHD; PITX3; LMX1A; LMX1B; BDNF; DAT; SNP; genes; genetics; BDNF;

    Abstract : Rationale: Dopamine synthesizing neurons are involved in a wide variety of functions. The most prominent dopamine pathways originate in the midbrain. The development, function and survival of these dopaminergic neurons are under the influence of numerous transcription and neurotrophic factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sami lifestyle and health : epidemiological studies from northern Sweden

    University dissertation from the Dean of the Medical Faculty, Umeå university

    Author : Lena Maria Nilsson; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences Health Sciences Public Health; Global Health; Social Medicine and Epidemiology; Medicin och hälsovetenskap Hälsovetenskaper Folkhälsovetenskap; global hälsa; socialmedicin och epidemiologi; Sami people; traditional food; traditional lifestyle; the VIP cohort; mortality; cancer; cardiovascular disease; Public health; folkhälsa;

    Abstract : The aim of this PhD thesis was to expand the current knowledge of “traditional Sami” diet and lifestyle, and to test aspects of the Sami diet and lifestyle, specifically dietary pattern, macronutrient distribution and coffee consumption, in population-based epidemiological studies of mortality and incident cardiovascular disease and cancer in a general population.In Paper I, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 20 elderly Sami concerning their parent’s lifestyle and diet 50-70 years ago.

  3. 3. PET studies of the dopamine system in relation to cognitive functions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Nina Erixon-Lindroth; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]

    Abstract : The human brain is intricately designed to execute cognitive functions such as perception, attention, memory and learning. Deficits in cognitive functions accompany major psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Parkinson s disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder : Alterations of motor behaviour and dopaminergic transmission

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Aurelija Jucaite; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AD HD; DCD; neurodevelopmental disorder; PET; dopamine transporter; dopamine D2 receptors; raclopride; striatum; midbrain; anticipatory postural adjustments;

    Abstract : Altered catecholaminergic neurotransmission in the brain has long been thought to be of importance in the regulation of motor behavior and cognitive performance in children who had symptoms of distractability, impulsivity and clumsiness. The dopamine theory of AD/HD has mainly been substantiated by: i) the effects of psychostimulants, which target the dopamine transporter (DAT), and thereby reduce impulsiveness and inattentiveness, increase the striatal cerebral blood flow and functional activity, and ii) the evidence from linkage studies associating the AD/HD syndrome with allelic variations of genes encoding the dopamine transporter and, possibly, the dopamine D4 receptors.

  5. 5. Nuclear medicine methods in idiopathic Parkinsonism : pre- and postsynaptic dopamine SPECT

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Susanna Jakobson Mo; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences Clinical Medicine Radiology; Nuclear Medicine and Medical Imaging; Medicin och hälsovetenskap Klinisk medicin Radiologi och bildbehandling; Nuclear medicine; SPECT; 123I-FP-Cit; 123I-IBZM; dopamine; parkinsonism; Parkinson’s disease; multiple system atrophy; progressive supranuclear palsy; Radiology; radiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with dopamine transporter (DAT) and dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) ligands can visualise the integrity of the nigrostriatal dopamine system. Parkinson’s disease (PD) and the atypical parkinsonian diseases (APD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and multiple system atrophy (MSA), have similar symptoms and dopamine depletion, but differ in pharmacological response and prognosis.
