  1. 1. Dyslexia among adults: Neuropsychology and personality

    University dissertation from Department of Psychology, Lund University

    Author : Jimmy Jensen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurophysiology; Dyslexia; Personality; Psychology; Psykologi; neuropsychology; Neurology; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Reading and writing skills are of crucial importance in modern society. Therefore, dyslexia is a significant handicap, not only in respect of lexical skills and processing of language-based information - it appears to have social consequences as well, as evidenced for instance by the high frequency of dyslexics among long-term unemployed people.

  2. 2. The neuropsychology of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus

    University dissertation from Department of Psychology, Lund University

    Author : Per Hellström; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; Neuropsychology; Prospective study; Shunt treatment; Treatment outcome; iNPH scale;

    Abstract : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is characterised by an active distension of the cerebral ventricles due to inadequate absorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into the systemic circulation. The intracranial pressure is within normal limits, the passages between the ventricles and subarachnoid spaces are open, and there is an absence of identifiable antecedents known to reduce CSF absorption.

  3. 3. Stroke in geriatric patients - Aspects of depression, cognition and motor activity

    University dissertation from Med Clin, University Hospital of Lund

    Author : Berit Agrell; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; laterality; stroke; rating scales; motoractivity; aphasia; neglect; disability; depression; cognition; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Six depression rating scales, GDS, Zung, CES-D, CPRS-D and Cornell, were compared in 40 patients. The validity was good for all scales except for the Cornell scale. A comprehensive investigation was done in 116 elderly stroke patients. There was no difference in prevalence and severity of post-stroke depression in relation to side of lesion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aspects of proteinase-activated receptor-2: A sensor of enzymatic activity at the cell surface

    University dissertation from Div. of molecular neurobiology, Sölvegatan 17, SE-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Anna-Karin Alm; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; neuropsychology; endometrium.; coagulation; signalling; proteinase; G-protein; cell; receptor; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Information about extracellular proteolytic activity is transduced to the cell by a transmembrane G-protein coupled receptor subfamily. These receptors are activated by proteolytic cleavage in the extracellular amino-terminal domain and are thus termed proteinase-activated receptors (PARs). READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Causal Mechanisms of Stuttering

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Lund University

    Author : Per A Alm; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; neurofysiologi; stuttering; neuropsykologi; neurophysiology; Neurologi; dystonia; neuropsychology; Neurology; basal ganglia;

    Abstract : Stuttering is one of the most common speech disorders. However, the etiology is poorly understood, and is likely to be heterogeneous. The aim of this thesis was to clarify causal mechanisms, focusing the brain. READ MORE
