    Abstract : The main purpose of the dissertation is to understand meaning-making practices used by people suffering from acquired brain damage with severe physical and communicative disabilities, in order to create and sustain their identity and personhood in relation to other people. The study emanates from the idea that identity and personhood, also in relation to disability, are created/sustained in ongoing interaction between people in everyday situations, and that the ability to narrate is central to such a creation of identity.

  2. 2. The Non-Invasive Brain Biopsy : Implementation and Application of Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy on Healthy and Diseased Human Brain

    Author : Anders Tisell; Peter Lundberg; Marcel Warntjes; Anne-Marie Landtblom; Örjan Smedby; Jan Weis; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Introduction: In this thesis, one of the major objectives was to implement a method for (absolute) quantitative magnetic resonance spectroscopy (qMRS) of the human brain, intended for clinical use. The implemented method was based on standard spatially selective MRS sequences. READ MORE

  3. 3. On biomarkers in traumatic brain injury

    Author : Eric Thelin; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common cause of death and disability. Unfortunately, TBI patients will be affected by secondary insults, such as hypoxia and increased intracranial pressure, which may lead to secondary brain injuries. READ MORE

  4. 4. Apoptotic mechanisms in the neonatal brain following hypoxia-ischemia

    Author : Ylva Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hypoxia-ischemia brain caspase-2 cyclophilin D MLK neonatal.;

    Abstract : Neonatal encephalopathy is often perinatally acquired and caused by hypoxia-ischemia (HI). Brain injury develops with a delay, over 12-48 hours, after the insult. Hypothermia, an established neuroprotective treatment, saves 1 infant in 9 from neurological deficits suggesting that there is room for further improvement. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inflammation, caffeine and adenosine in neonatal hypoxic ischemic brain injury

    Author : Max Winerdal; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Background: Brain injury during the neonatal period has potentially lifelong consequences for a child. Perinatal infections and inflammation can induce preterm birth and unfavorable cognitive development, Thus inflammation has received enthusiastic interest for potential therapeutic approaches seeking to protect the newborn brain.
