  1. 1. Influence of exposure patterns and oxidation in UVR-induced cataract

    Author : Marcelo Ayala; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cataract; ultraviolet radiation; lens; in vivo; rats; oxidative process; time;

    Abstract : Background: Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is one among a number of possible factors that may lead to the development of cataract. Whereas induction of cataract as the result of onetime exposure to UVR has been studied extensively, the data on lens damage resulting from repeated exposures to UVR are scarce. READ MORE

  4. 4. Designing Interactive Learning Environments to Support Learners’ Understanding in Complex Domains

    Author : Marcelo Milrad; Växjö universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interactive learning environments; complex domains; social constructivism; collaborative learning; construction kits; system dynamics simulations; collaborative modelling tools.; Information technology; Informationsteknologi; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap; Media Technology; Media Technology;

    Abstract : This dissertation focuses on the design of interactive learning environments (ILEs) to support learning in complex domains. Previous research efforts in this field indicate that we lack a well-articulated design framework with sufficient detail to take us from a socially-situated, problem-based, collaborative learning perspective to the design of a particular learning environment for a particular subject domain.

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases caused by atherosclerosis are a leading cause of mortality worldwide. Inflammation has been described as a key component in the development of atherosclerosis. Lipoxin A4 (LXA4) is a lipid mediator derived from arachidonic acid, which has anti-inflammatory and pro-resolution properties mediated through the FPR2/ALX receptor. READ MORE
