    Abstract : Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are receiving increasing attention due to a combination of injuries related to war and sports, as well as to an increasing number of traffic accident survivors. Today the leading cause of death in young adults in industrialized nations is traumatic brain injury and in the population under 35 years, the death rate is 3. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dream Experience - Phenomenology meets Cognitive Neuroscience

    University dissertation from Lennart Karlsson, Dept. of Philosophy, Lund University

    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Philosophical logic; dream symbolism; neuroscience; delusional states; visual awareness; lucid dreaming; Phenomenology; dreaming; Teoretisk filosofi; logik;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vi tänker oss i allmänhet att vår upplevelse av drömmen är lik vår upplevelse av vår vakna verklighet i så måtto att drömmen presenterar sig som en värld som vi som drömmare tar för verklig och som vi på olika sätt interagerar med. I denna avhandling tittar jag närmare på denna uppfattning och granskar hur väl den harmonierar med vad vi nu anser oss veta om hur hjärnan/psyket fungerar under sömn och vaka. READ MORE

  3. 3. Machine learning for identification of brain activity patterns with applications in gentle touch processing

    University dissertation from Lennart Karlsson, Dept. of Philosophy, Lund University

    Author : Malin Björnsdotter Åberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Somatosensory; Machine learning; Pattern recognition; fMRI; Support vector machines; Neuroscience; Brain; BOLD; Signal processing; Artificial intelligence; Touch; Human; Unmyelinated; Sensory; Affective;

    Abstract : Since the first mention of artificial intelligence in the 1950s, the field of machine learning has provided increasingly appealing tools for recognition of otherwise unintelligible pattern representations in complex data structures. Human brain activity, acquired using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), is a prime example of such complex data where the utility of pattern recognition has been demonstrated in a wide range of studies recently (Haynes et al.

  4. 4. The reserve concept in patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment – new approaches

    University dissertation from Lennart Karlsson, Dept. of Philosophy, Lund University

    Author : Sindre Rolstad; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroscience; cognition; neuropsychology;

    Abstract : The concept of reserve stems from the observation that premorbid factors, e.g. education, result in variation in the response to any kind of brain pathology. As subjects with higher reserve tolerate more neuropathology, symptomatic expression of pathology is delayed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigating the multisensory representation of the hand and the space around it using fMRI

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Giovanni Gentile; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The human brain incessantly receives a staggering amount of information from all our senses . The dynamic integration of relevant multisensory signals is an evolutionarily optimal strategy to assist adaptive behavior. Arguably , one physical object stands out as the unique recipient of internal and external multisensory signals alike : the body. READ MORE
