  1. 1. Brain functional near infrared spectroscopy in human infants : cerebral cortical haemodynamics coupled to neuronal activation in response to sensory stimulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Marco Bartocci; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Near infrared spectroscopy; newborn; infant; brain; sensory stimulation; cortical activation;

    Abstract : The assessment of cortical activation in the neonatal brain is crucial in the study of brain development, as it provides precious information for how the newborn infant processes external or internal stimuli. Thus far functional studies of neonates aimed to assess cortical responses to certain external stimuli are very few, due to the lack of suitable techniques to monitor brain activity of the newborn.

  2. 2. Enabling Scalable Data Analysis on Cloud Resources with Applications in Life Science

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marco Capuccini; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cloud computing; bioinformatics; Big Data; microservices; containers; MapReduce; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Over the past 20 years, the rise of high-throughput methods in life science has enabled research laboratories to produce massive datasets of biological interest. When dealing with this "data deluge" of modern biology researchers encounter two major challenges: first, there is a need for substantial technical skills for dealing with Big Data and; second, infrastructure procurement becomes difficult.

  3. 3. Cellular and molecular roles for CDC42 in angiogenesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marco Castro; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CDC42; angiogenesis; endothelial cell; vascular malformation; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is the physiological process by which new blood vessels grow and critically depends on the interplay between the major vascular units: endothelial cells, pericytes and smooth muscle cells. Dysfunction and mispatterning of blood vessels are associated with the progression of many vascular complications, and therefore, understanding the causes of vascular dysmorphia is a central question in vascular biology.

  4. 4. Interactive computer-aided expressive music performance Analysis, control, modification and synthesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Marco Fabiani; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Acoustics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Akustik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the design and implementation process of two applications (PerMORFer and MoodifierLive) for the interactive manipulation of music performance. Such applications aim at closing the gap between the musicians, who play the music, and the listeners, who passively listen to it. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental study on turbulent boundary-layer flows with wall transpiration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Marco Ferro; KTH.; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbulent boundary layer; boundary-layer suction; boundary-layer blowing; wall-bounded turbulent flows; self-sustained turbulence; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Wall transpiration, in the form of wall-normal suction or blowing through a permeable wall, is a relatively simple and effective technique to control the behaviour of a boundary layer. For its potential applications for laminar-turbulent transition and separation delay (suction) or for turbulent drag reduction and thermal protection (blowing), wall transpiration has over the past decades been the topic of a significant amount of studies.
