  1. 1. Ontogenetic and comparative aspects of cerebellar and motor development

    University dissertation from Division of Neuroscience, Department of Experimental Medical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Maria Christensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; Neurologi; Neurology; neuropsychology; Medicine human and vertebrates ; time-translation; cross-species; cerebellum; motor adaptation; development; ferret; external granular layer; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : During the course of development the motor repertoire of animals and humans alike go through dramatic changes. New motor patterns arise; movements become coordinated, improve in precision and are at the same time continuously calibrated to the changing body dimensions. The cerebellum is critical for movement coordination and adaptation in adults. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spontaneous Movements during Sleep Guide Spinal Self-organization: Formation and Expression of a Memory Trace

    University dissertation from Per Petersson, Neurophysiology, BMC F10, S-221 84 Lund

    Author : Per Petersson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsychology; Neurologi; Neurology; long-term memory; somatosensory; receptive field; learning; sensorimotor; developmental; neurophysiology; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi;

    Abstract : During development, information about the three-dimensional shape and mechanical properties of the body is laid down in the synaptic connectivity of sensorimotor systems through adaptive mechanisms. In spinal reflex systems, this enables the fast transformation of complex sensory information into adequate correction of movements. READ MORE

  3. 3. NO PAIN, STILL GAIN- cross-modality development learning guided by spinal spontaneous activity

    University dissertation from Alexandra Waldenström, Dept. of Physiological Sciences, Sect. for Neurophysiology, BMC F10, S-221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Alexandra Waldenström; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; Neurology; neuropsychology; development; spinal cord; activity-dependent learning and memory; pain; somatosensory; neurophysiology;

    Abstract : Recent studies indicate that experience dependent mechanisms shape the pain system during the development. In view of that painful stimuli are rare during development it is not clear how this is accomplished. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Cerebello-Olivary Feedback System

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Fredrik Bengtsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi; neurophysiology; Neurology; neuropsychology; Fysiologi; Physiology; Cerebellum; Purkinje cell; Inferior olive; Neurologi; Nucleo-olivary; Climbing fibre.; Deep cerebellar nuclei;

    Abstract : The pathway from the deep cerebellar nuclei to the inferior olive, the nucleo-olivary pathway, is known to be inhibitory. The physiological and temporal properties, as well as the localisation, of the nucleo-olivary pathway were characterised in the decerebrate ferret. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cerebellar Control of Classical Conditioning

    University dissertation from Department of Physiological Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Ivarsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bilateral; Associative module; Orbicularis oculi muscle; Inferior olive; Purkinje cell; Eyeblink; Conditioned response; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology;

    Abstract : It has previously been shown that the cerebellum is critical for classical conditioning. The experiments presented in this thesis aimed to study how the cerebellum controls conditioned eyeblink responses (CRs) and specifically the efferent path from the cerebellar cortex to the muscles.
