  1. 1. Cursed complexity. Computational properties of subcortical neuronal microcircuitry in sensorimotor control

    Author : Anton Spanne; Hjärnans sensorimotoriska funktioner; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spike firing statistics; spontaneous activity; sensorimotor control; tactile processing; cuneate nucleus; sparse coding; spinal border cells; cerebellum;

    Abstract : One of the big obstacles for understanding the nervous system is its inherent complexity. It poses problems when interpreting both experimental and theoretical studies since we are currently forced to consider only reduced variants of the actual circuitry of the brain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cerebellar pathways and mechanisms in classical conditioning

    Author : Pär Svensson; Neurofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; Climbing Fibers; Conditioned Response; Mossy Fibers; Ferret; Eyeblink; Cerebellum; Classical Conditioning; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : It has been suggested that the cerebellar mossy fibre afferents transmit the conditioned stimulus (CS) information to the cerebellum. Several studies are consistent with this suggestion but alternative explanations have not been excluded. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Cerebello-Olivary Feedback System

    Author : Fredrik Bengtsson; Neurofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; neurophysiology; Neurology; neuropsychology; Fysiologi; Physiology; Cerebellum; Purkinje cell; Inferior olive; Neurologi; Nucleo-olivary; Climbing fibre.; Deep cerebellar nuclei;

    Abstract : The pathway from the deep cerebellar nuclei to the inferior olive, the nucleo-olivary pathway, is known to be inhibitory. The physiological and temporal properties, as well as the localisation, of the nucleo-olivary pathway were characterised in the decerebrate ferret. READ MORE

  4. 4. Distribution of CGRP and CGRP receptor in the trigeminovascular system and CNS

    Author : Sajedeh Eftekhari; Lund Medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CGRP; CLR; RAMP1; migraine; trigeminovascular system; pain; cerebellum;

    Abstract : Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) has a key role in the pathophysiology of migraine and is associated with activation of the trigeminovascular system. Recently, CGRP receptor antagonists have been developed with clinical efficacy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ontogenetic and comparative aspects of cerebellar and motor development

    Author : Maria Christensson; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurologi; neurophysiology; Neurology; neuropsychology; Medicine human and vertebrates ; time-translation; cross-species; cerebellum; motor adaptation; development; ferret; external granular layer; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : During the course of development the motor repertoire of animals and humans alike go through dramatic changes. New motor patterns arise; movements become coordinated, improve in precision and are at the same time continuously calibrated to the changing body dimensions. The cerebellum is critical for movement coordination and adaptation in adults. READ MORE
