  1. 1. On the evolutionary origin of the vertebrate cortex

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Shreyas M Suryanarayana; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to dissect out the minimalistic ancestral neural hardware, which has been conserved in homologue structures of the cerebral cortex and in particular the neocortex, across vertebrates. For this purpose, we utilise the lamprey - a cyclostome (jawless vertebrate), and we compare its anatomical homologue of cortex, the lateral pallium (LPal), in terms of its connectivity, cytoarchitecture and sensory organisation with that of the mammalian neocortex.

  2. 2. Treatment wetlands in a tropical climate

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Hristina Bojcevska; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The decrease of water resources values as a result of eutrophication is a major problem in numerous lakes around the world, including the Great African Lakes. One of the most important tasks to limit this eutrophication, is to decrease the nutrient input from land-based activities. READ MORE

  3. 3. A new technique to assess dermal absorption of chemical vapor in vitro by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Matias Rauma; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : There is a huge lack of dermal uptake data for chemicals, and it is frequent with large variations in reported permeability coefficients for chemicals with more than one data set, showing the need for a new and standardized in vitro method. The overall aim of this thesis was to develop the new method of measuring dermal absorption of chemical vapor using the TGA method. READ MORE

    Abstract : EFFECTS OF AGEING ON CONTRACTILITY AND MYOSIN COMPOSITION OF RAT AND MAN SKELETAL MUSCLE AND MUSCLE CELLS With special reference to muscle adaptability Xiaopeng LiDissertation from the Neurophysiology Section, Department of Clinical Neuroscience Karolinska Hospital and Institute, S-171 76 Stockholm, Sweden The aims of this thesis were to characterize the effects of ageing on the contractile and biochemical propertiesof fast- and slow-twitch skeletal muscles at the whole muscle amd single fibre level in an anempt to improve our understandingof the mechanisms underlying the age-related impairments of muscle fimcdon. Specific mterest was in the adaptabiliy ofskeletal muscle amd the regulation of speed of shonening at single-cell level in tbe rat and m man. READ MORE
