  1. 1. Spinal Control of Locomotion Developmental and Functional Aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nadine Rabe; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuronal network; commissural interneuron; developmental interneuron subtypes; V3; mouse genetics; Pitx2; axon guidance; netrin-1; DCC; EphA4; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi; Developmental Neurosciences; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Neuronal networks are the central functional units of the nervous system. Knowledge about the identity of participating neurons and the assembly of these during development is crucial for the understanding of CNS function. READ MORE

  2. 2. Magnitude Processing in Developmental Dyscalculia A Heterogeneous Learning Disability with Different Cognitive Profiles

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Kenny Skagerlund; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Developmental Dyscalculia; mathematical learning disabilities; number sense; Dyskalkyli; matematiksvårigheter; antalsuppfattning;

    Abstract : Developmental dyscalculia (DD) is a learning disability that is characterized by severe difficulties with acquiring age-appropriate mathematical skills that cannot be attributed to insufficient education, language skills, or motivation. The prevalence rate is estimated at 3-6%, meaning that a substantial portion of the population struggles to learn mathematics to such a large degree that it affects overall well-being and academic prospects.

  3. 3. Translational research of the quaking gene Focusing on the conjunction between development and disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bryn Farnsworth; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; QKI; glia; oligodendrocyte; Alzheimer s; schizophrenia; zebrafish; statistics; morpholino; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär organismbiologi; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Organismal Biology;

    Abstract : Quaking (QKI) is an RNA binding protein involved in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Originally identified as the cause of hypomyelination in a mouse mutant, it has since been consistently implicated in a wide range of neurological diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. GDNF and alpha-synuclein in nigrostriatal degeneration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Maria Chermenina; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parkinson s disease; GDNF; ventral mesencephalon; lateral ganglionic eminence; alpha-synuclein; medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi; Developmental Neurosciences;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease is a common neurological disorder with a complex etiology. The disease is characterized by a progressive loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra, which leads to motor function and sometimes cognitive function disabilities. READ MORE

    Abstract : Spinal neurons are important in several aspects motor control. For example, the neurons essential for locomotor movements reside in the ventral spinal cord. In this thesis, different motor control functions are being related to neuronal populations defined by their common expression of a gene. READ MORE
