  1. 1. Neurotoxic Effects of Nicotine During Neonatal Brain Development Critical Period and Adult Susceptibility

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Emma Ankarberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; nicotine; neonatal development; behaviour; nicotinic receptors; susceptibility; cholinergic system; paraoxon; PBDE; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : This thesis examined neurotoxic effects of nicotine exposure during a defined critical period of neonatal brain development in mice.In our environment there are numerous hazardous contaminants that an individual can be exposed to during its entire lifetime. READ MORE

  2. 2. Susceptibility to chronic liver disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Antonella Burza; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic liver disease; susceptibility; human genetics; NAFLD; ALD; PNPLA3;

    Abstract : The onset and the progression of chronic liver disease involve environmental and genetic factors. Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) are important players in these processes and are the main storage site for retinol. READ MORE

  3. 3. Susceptibility genes in conformational diseases

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Malin von Otter; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Conformational disease; Alzheimer’s disease; Parkinson’s disease; Cataract Protein aggregation; Cellular transport; Oxidative stress; Susceptibility; genes; SNP; Haplotype;

    Abstract : Conformational diseases are characterized by protein misfolding and aggregation in the affected tissue. The aim of this thesis was to find genetic support for mechanisms in common for three prevalent ... READ MORE

  4. 4. Susceptibility effects in MRI and 1H MRS. The spurious echo artifact and susceptibility measurements

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Åsa Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; 1H MRS; susceptibility; spurious echo; artifact; artefact;

    Abstract : When performing magnetic resonance (MR) experiments, a strong homogeneous magnetic field is often preferred, especially in clinical applications. However, all objects that are placed in the magnetic field will disturb the field homogeneity and cause local magnetic field gradients. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Complex Genetics behind Neurodegeneration and Susceptibility to Parkinson’s disease

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Michael Jewett; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]

    Abstract : Parkinsons sjukdom (PS) är den näst vanligaste neurodegenerativa sjukdomen efter Alzheimers sjukdom och drabbar över 1 % av personer över 65 år. Även om denna progressiva och försvagande sjukdom brukar anses vara en motorsjukdom, med symtom som stelhet, långsamma rörelser och vilotremor, så påverkas också icke-motoriska funktioner som sömn, kognition och mag-tarmfunktion.
