  1. 1. Cooling and dopamine

    University dissertation from Roger Roscher, Dept. of Anaesthesiology, Rikshospitalet, N-0027 Oslo, Norway

    Author : Roger Roscher; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaesthesiology; electrophysiology; cooling; Hypothermia; swine; lung transplantation; organ preservation; dopamine; circulation; contractility; oxygenation; intensive care; Anestesiologi; intensivvård;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Syftet med denna studie var att försöka kartlägga effekterna av ytkylning och dopamins effekter på hjärta och blodcirkulation samt på syrgastransport och syrgasförbrukning efter ytkylning. Faran för att bli oavsiktligt nedkyld är störst om immobiliserande skador har uppstått samtidigt som man exponeras för kyla, speciellt om kylan är kombinerad med väta. READ MORE

  2. 2. On dopamine neurons nerve fiber outgrowth and L-DOPA effects

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Sara af Bjerkén; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; nerve fiber outgrowth; astrocytes; ventral mesencephalon; GDNF; L-DOPA; L-DOPA induced dyskinesia; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Neurobiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease is a disorder mainly characterized by progressive degeneration of dopamine producing neurons in the substantia nigra of the midbrain. The most commonly used treatment strategy is to pharmacologically restore the lost function by the administration of the dopaminergic precursor L-DOPA. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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 : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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.

  4. 4. Aerobic fitness and healthy brain aging cognition, brain structure, and dopamine

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Lars Jonasson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aerobic exercise; VO2; working memory; executive function; freesurfer; striatum; dopamine; D2-receptors; [11C]raclopride;

    Abstract : Background: Performing aerobic exercise and maintaining high levels of aerobic fitness may have positive effects on both brain structure and function in older adults. Despite decades of research however, there is still a rather poor understanding of the neurocognitive mechanisms explaining the positive effects of aerobic exercise on cognition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Dopamine D2 and D3 receptors. Studies on transduction mechanisms and on the role of a D3 gene polymorphism

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Monika Hellstrand; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; dopamine D2 receptor; dopamine D3 receptor; transduction; CHO cells; partial agonism; inverse agonism; arachidonic acid; prostaglandin E2; cAMP; haloperidol; -3-PPP; PNU-99194A; polymorphism; personality;

    Abstract : The neurotransmitter dopamine has been implicated in the pathophysiology of, e.g., Parkinson s disease and schizophrenia, and dopamine receptor-active compounds are commonly employed therapeutically in these and other disorders. READ MORE
