    Abstract : Spinal neurons are important in several aspects motor control. For example, the neurons essential for locomotor movements reside in the ventral spinal cord. In this thesis, different motor control functions are being related to neuronal populations defined by their common expression of a gene. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neural circuits engaged in mastication and orofacial nociception

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Tuija Athanassiadis; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rhythmical jaw movements; central pattern generator; trigeminal system; rabbit; Rat; c-Fos; nociceptors; muscle pain; muscle spindle afferents; glutamate; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Neurophysiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Neurofysiologi; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : A deeper understanding of both movement control and the effects of nociceptor inputs on our motor systems is critical for proper clinical diagnosis of musculo-skeletal dysfunctions and for development of novel rehabilitation schemes. In the jaw system, masticatory movements are produced by a central pattern generator (CPG) located in the brainstem. READ MORE

  3. 3. EMG and strength in trunk and hip muscles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Eva A Andersson; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Neurophysiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Neurofysiologi; abdominal muscles; biomechanics; electromyography; erector spinae; iliacus; iliopsoas; hip flexor muscles; locomotion; motor control; normalization; posture; psoas; quadratus lumborum; rehabilitation; running; sit-ups; strength; training exercises; u;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the myouelectric activity of all major muscles involved in the movements and stabilization of the trunk, pelvis and hips during training exercises, postures, motor tasks, maximal strength performance and locomotion. By use of ultra-sound, EMG electrodes could be guided safely and accurately into muscles situated even close to the spinal column, such as psoas, quadratus lumborum and deep parts of erector spinae.

  4. 4. Celluar and Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Regulation of Skeletal Muscle Contraction in Health and Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mingxin Li; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Morphological changes, genetic modifications, and cell functional alterations are not always parallel. Therefore, assessment of skeletal muscle function is an integral part of the etiological approach. READ MORE

  5. 5. How the past becomes present neural mechanisms governing retrieval from episodic memory

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Kristiina Kompus; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
