  1. 1. Glutamate for metabolic intervention in coronary surgery with special reference to the GLUTAMICS-trial

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Mårten Vidlund; Örebro universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; myocardial ischemia; coronary artery bypass; cardiac surgery; acute coronary syndrome; glutamate; metabolic intervention; postoperative heart failure; myocardial recovery; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Myocardial ischemia is a major cause of postoperative heart failure and adverse outcome in coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). Conventional treatment of postoperative heart failure with inotropic drugs may aggravate underlying ischemic injury. READ MORE

  2. 2. Glutamate Turnover and Energy Metabolism in Brain Injury Clinical and Experimental Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carolina Samuelsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Neurosciences; glutamate; glutamine; lactate; pyruvate; microdialysis; GLT-1; energy metabolism; intracranial pressure; cerebral perfusion pressure; subarachnoid hemorrhage; ischemia; epilepsy; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : During brain activity neurons release the major excitatory transmitter glutamate, which is taken up by astrocytes and converted to glutamine. Glutamine returns to neurons for re-conversion to glutamate. This glutamate-glutamine cycle is energy demanding. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plasticity of the developing glutamate synapse in the hippocampus

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Therése Abrahamsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; synaptic plasticity; long-term potentiation; short-term potentiation; silent synapse; development; hippocampus; glutamate;

    Abstract : Synapses are highly plastic, i.e. they have the ability to change their signaling strength both in the short- and long-term (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Creating Ultrafast Biosensors for Neuroscience

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Yuanmo Wang; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acetylcholine esterase; brain slice; exocytosis; amperometry; adsorption; Biosensor; quantification; gold nanoparticles; glucose oxidase; enzyme monolayer; enzymatic activity; artificial cell; acetylcholine; glutamate oxidase; glucose; choline oxidase; enzyme stability; glutamate; deformation;

    Abstract : Neuronal communication is the basis for all our brain function and relies on regulated exocytosis, a cell function that involves release of quantal amounts of neurotransmitters into the gap space between interconnected neurons to serve as chemical signals. To study exocytosis, which is a fast process that occurs on the timescale of sub-milliseconds to milliseconds, a toolbox of analytical methods has been developed where the electrochemical based techniques offer quantitative and sufficient high temporal recording speed.

  5. 5. GABA-, glycine- and glutamate-induced currents in rat medial preoptic neurons functional interactions and modulation by capsaicin

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Urban Karlsson; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medial preoptic nucleus; synaptic transmission; glutamate; GABA; glycine; TRPV1; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The medial preoptic nucleus (MPN) of the hypothalamus plays a major role in many functions involved in maintaining bodily homeostasis, such as thermoregulation and osmoregulation, as well as in the control of complex behaviours, e.g. sexual behaviour. READ MORE
