    Abstract : Pain is a major public health issue throughout the world. Increased understanding of the different forms of pain and identification of susceptibility genes could contribute to improved treatments. READ MORE

  2. 2. On genes involved in common neurological disorders : focus on Parkinson's disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Caroline Ran; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease and migraine are complex neurological disorders and it is likely that a combination of genetic risk factors are involved in the etiology of both these diseases. Papers in this thesis investigate candidate genes in the search of genetic risk factors contributing to disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genotype-phenotype characterization of familial hyperkinetic movement disorders : emphasis on ataxia and brain calcifications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Martin Paucar; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Differential diagnosis of familial chorea encompasses Huntington’s disease along with a group of conditions referred to as Huntington’s disease-like (HDL). One such HDL is an inherited prion disorder (IPD) caused by pathological insertions of 8 additional OPRIS in the prion protein gene (PRNP). READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic analysis and software development for studies on complex human traits

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Lisette Graae; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Rapidly advancing genotyping and genome sequencing technologies have recently given us the opportunity to watch evolution at work. It turns out that the genome, like so many other workplaces, is rather messy. The sequences of no two humans are exactly alike, not even those of “identical” twins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Candidate genes and the dopamine system : Possible implications in complex neurological and psychiatric disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Silvia Buervenich; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetic; linkage; association; dopamine; Parkinsons disease; schizophrenia; bipolar disease; retinoid; aldehyde; toxicity.;

    Abstract : The mesencephalic dopamine (DA) system is strongly involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinsons disease (PD), where symptoms occur after the loss of the vast majority of DA neurons. An involvement of this system also in schizophrenia (SZ) and bipolar disease (BD) is suggested by the fact that DA receptor antagonists are among the most potent drugs in clinical use for the treatment of these conditions.
