  1. 1. Tendon autografts for bridging nerve defects

    University dissertation from Jerker Brandt Department of Experimental ResearchMalmö University HospitalSE 205 02 MalmöSweden

    Author : Jerker Brandt; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; Surgery; orthopaedics; cell culture; graft; rat; collagen; tendon; Schwann cells; axons; Peripheral nerve regeneration; axonal outgrowth; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Bakgrund En skada i en extremitet, som innebär att en perifer nervstam blir avskuren, medför ofta ett betydande handikapp med förlust av muskelkraft och känsel för patienten och därtill stora samhällskostnader, eftersom sådana skador i stor omfattning drabbar den arbetsföra delen av befolkningen. Det bästa behandlingsalternativet vid en sådan skada är att direkt sy ihop de avskurna nervändarna. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neuromuscular injuries and pharyngeal dysfunction in snorers and sleep apnea patients a study on pathological changes in the human soft palate and its relationship with swallowing dysfunction

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Farhan Shah; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Axons; BDNF; desmin; dystrophin; obstructive sleep apnea; OSA; pharyngeal function; muscle; myopathy; neuropathy; Schwann cells; swallowing dysfunction; upper airway; Medical Cell Biology; medicinsk cellbiologi; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi; Pathology; patologi; molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent progressive sleep disorder with serious negative health consequences. Although several risk factors such as obesity can make an individual vulnerable to develop OSA, the pathophysiological mechanism for the collapse of the upper airway is unclear. READ MORE

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability in the Western world. especially in young people. Understanding the pathophysiology of traumatic brain injury is the basis for further development of better therapeutic strategies for such patients. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dendritic and axonal ion channels supporting neuronal integration From pyramidal neurons to peripheral nociceptors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Marcus Petersson; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ion channels; computational modeling; simulations; dendrites; axons; TRP; hippocampus; C-fiber nociceptors; pain;

    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is a complex network with billions of complex neurons. Ion channels mediate the electrical signals that neurons use to integrate input and produce appropriate output, and could thus be thought of as key instruments in the neuronal orchestra. READ MORE

  5. 5. Targeting of viral proteins to axons and dendrites

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Katarzyna Weclevicz; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Tn the thesis distribution of different proteins of enveloped and non-enveloped viruseswas studied in neurons, which are polarized cells with an axonal and a somatodendriticdomain. Such studies may give better insight not only into virus spread withinneuronal populations and selective changes in infected neurons as a consequence of thespread, but they may also contribute to an understanding of the basic sortingmechanisrns, which are responsible for asymmetric targeting of macromolecules to thepre- and postsynaptic regions in a nerve cell.
