    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movement; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tomography; Regional cerebral blood flow; Movernent; Positron emission tornography; Regional cerebral blood - flow;

    Abstract : Chronic muscle pain is a significant medical and social problem and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved is an important requirement for further development of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation methods. Experimental imaging studies have investigated functional neuroanatomy of different pain components. READ MORE

    Author : Cecilia Fridén; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Estrogen; progesterone; muscle strength; kinesthesia; coordination; postural control;

    Abstract : Several studies have demonstrated a higher incidence of sports related knee injuries among female athletes compared to their male counterparts regardless of exposure time and activity level. Different intrinsic and extrinsic factors have been proposed as risk factors in women. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neural correlates of skilled movement : Functional mapping of the human brain with fMRI and PET

    Abstract : Humans have unique abilities to perform certain types of skilled voluntary movements. In this thesis we examine the neural substrates of. (i) fine digit actions, in particular the control of fingertip forces during manipulation, and (ii) the coordination of voluntary movements of different limbs. READ MORE
