  1. 1. Ethanol-induced modulation of dopamine transmission and synaptic activity in striatal subregions - focus on inhibitory receptors

    Author : Rhona B. C. Clarke; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; ethanol; acetaldehyde; striatum; glycine receptor; GABA A receptor;

    Abstract : Background: Alcoholism is a chronic brain disease, affecting neurocircuitries involved in reward and learning. The rewarding effects of alcohol (ethanol) are believed to result from increased dopamine levels in the nucleus accumbens (nAc) via the mesolimbic system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Circadian rhythm dysfunction in the suprachiasmatic nucleus : Effects of Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection and inflammatory cytokines

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Gabriella B Lundkvist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Suprachiasmatic nucleus; slice; Trypanosoma brucei; sleeping sickness; spontaneous firing; rhytm; synaptic activity; GABA; glutamate; AMPA cytokines; sleep regulation; interferon-gamma; tumor necrosis factor-alpha;

    Abstract : Alterations in the mammalian circadian pacemaker, the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN), were studied in an experimental rat model of African trypanosomiasis, or sleeping sickness, caused by infections with subspecies of Trypanosoma brucei (T b). Characteristic signs of the disease are marked disturbances in circadian rhythms, such as a fragmentation of the sleep-wake cycle. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neuron-glial Interaction in the Developing Peripheral Nervous System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Corell; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Schwann cell; nonmyelinating Schwann cell; myelinating Schwann cell; development; proliferation; differentiation; myelin; neural stem cell; central nervous system; peripheral nervous system; enteric nervous system; N-cadherin; GABA; GAD; GABA B receptor; baclofen; CGP55485; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is the most sophisticated organ in the mammalian body. In such a complex network, neuron-glial interaction is essential and controls most developmental processes, such as stem cell fate determination, migration, differentiation, synapse formation, ensheathment and myelination.

  4. 4. Cyanide and central nervous system a study with focus on brain dopamine

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Gudrun Cassel; Umeå universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CNS; cyanide; dopaminergic system; convulsions; receptor binding; tyrosine hydroxylase; monoamine oxidase; extracellular release; inositol phosphate; GABA; GAD;

    Abstract : The brain is a major target site in acute cyanide intoxication, as indicated by several symptoms and signs. Cyanide inhibits the enzyme cytochrome oxidase. This inhibition causes impaired oxygen utilization in all cells affected, severe metabolic acidosis and inhibited production of energy. READ MORE

  5. 5. GABA signaling regulation by GLP-1 receptor agonists and GABA-A receptors modulator

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Omar M. Babateen; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) is the main neuroinhibitory transmitter in mammalian brains.  It binds to GABA-A and GABA-B receptors. The GABA-A receptors are ligand-gated chloride channels. A variety of GABA-A receptor agonists and antagonists have been developed to study the GABA-mediated inhibition and to explore new medications. READ MORE
