    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gene expression analyses; Neurodevelopmental disorders; Intellectual disability; Schizophrenia;

    Abstract : Neurodevelopmental disorders are complex and heterogenous disorders affecting brain development. In this thesis, we study intellectual disability (ID) and schizophrenia, and we applied genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic techniques to identify and further investigate candidate variants and important genes and pathways involved in pathology of these two disorders.

    Abstract : Combining products and services into Product-Service Systems (PSS), which are often owned and even operated by the company offering them, is seen as an important element of conducting more sustainable business. The prospective environmental benefits of PSS lie mainly in the improved resource- and operational efficiency. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neuromolecular and behavioural profile of teleosts : - effects of boldness, agonistic behaviour and reproductive status

    Author : Arshi Mustafa; Svante Winberg; Per Erik Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Histamine receptor 1 hrh1 ; histamine receptor 2 hrh2 ; histamine receptor 3 hrh3 ; boldness; personality; aggression; Histaminergic activity; Serotonergic activty 5-HIAA 5-HT ; Dopaminergic activty DOPAC DA ; spiegeldanio spd ; wild caught zebrafish; AB zebrafish; behaviour; brain.;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates if boldness is reflected in the function of brain histaminergic system in zebrafish (Danio rerio). Moreover, behavioural differences in AB line, spiegeldanio (spd) line and wild caught strain of zebrafish have also been explored apart from the winner-loser effect in AB and spd fish. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adolescents' experiences of undergoing scoliosis surgery : psychological aspects and patterns of pain

    Author : Anna-Clara Rullander; Viveca Lindh; Karin Enskär; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) affects 1 – 3% of all children aged 10 – 16 years; of these approximately 80% are girls. Scoliosis surgery is a major (one of the most extensive) elective paediatric orthopaedic procedure and is known to cause severe and excruciating pain that requires advanced postoperative pain management.

  5. 5. Functional Extinctions of Species in Ecological Networks

    Author : Torbjörn Säterberg; Bo Ebenman; Kevin McCann; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Functional extinctions; Extinctions; Fisheries management; Ecologically Effective Population sizes;

    Abstract : Current rates of extinctions are estimated to be around 1000 times higher than background rates that would occur without anthropogenic impacts. These extinction rates refer to the traditional view of extinctions, i.e. numerical extinctions. READ MORE
