  1. 1. Remembering in Alzheimer's disease utilization of cognitive support

    Author : Agneta Herlitz; Lars-Göran Nilsson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; Dementia; Memory; Episodic memory; Semantic memory; Severity of dementia; Alzheimers sjukdom; demens; minne;

    Abstract : The aim of the present doctoral thesis was to investigate the ability of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) to utilize cognitive support in order to improve episodic remembering. A review of previous research indicated that most studies have failed to find beneficial effects of encoding support on memory in AD patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer's disease Focus on NF-κB and C/EBP transcription factors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Neurochemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Veronica Ramberg; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Josep Saura; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; neuroinflammation; NF-κB; C EBP; apoptosis; caspases; FRET; neurokemi och neurotoxikologi; Neurochemistry and Neurotoxicology;

    Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia among elderly. The disease is characterized by amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, loss of synapses and neurons and chronic neuroinflammation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mitochondria in Alzheimer's Disease : The Presequence Protease and Mitochondria-Associated ER Membranes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Catarina Moreira Pinho; Elzbieta Glaser; Paolo Bernardi; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Alzheimer s Disease; Mitochondria; Mitochondria-associated ER membranes; human Presequence Protease; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most prevalent age-related neurodegenerative disorders and the accumulation of the amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) in the temporal lobe has been implicated in the pathology of AD. Synaptic transmission in neuronal cells is a highly energy dependent process, which relies on the presence and proper function of mitochondria. READ MORE

  4. 4. Amyloid-β Protofibril Formation and Neurotoxicity Implications for Alzheimer’s Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann-Sofi Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Neurosciences; Amyloid-β; Neurotoxicity; Aggregation; Protofibrils; Alzheimer s disease; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. A characteristic feature of AD is the presence of amyloid plaques in the cortex and hippocampus of the brain. The principal component of these plaques is the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide, a cleavage product from proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). READ MORE

  5. 5. Cognitive erosion and its implications in Alzheimer’s disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Selina Mårdh; Thomas Karlsson; Anders Wallin; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; longitudinal study; mixed methods design; semantic memory; awareness; metacognition; central coherence; emotions; Alzheimers sjukdom; longitudinell studie; mixed methods design; semantiskt minne; medvetande; metakognition; central koherens; emotioner;

    Abstract : The aim of the present thesis was twofold, first to map the semantic memory decline in Alzheimer patients over time, second to take the patient’s perspective and create a multifaceted picture of the individual with Alzheimer’s disease through the study of memory, awareness, central coherence and emotions. Further issues concerned how Alzheimer individuals handled their cognitive erosion in everyday life and if they were well calibrated with their spouse in disease related matters. READ MORE
