  1. 1. Panentheism, Panpsychism and Neuroscience In Search of an Alternative Metaphysical Framework in Relation to Neuroscience, Consciousness, Free Will, and Theistic Beliefs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Oliver Li; Mikael Stenmark; Karin Johannesson; Aku Visala; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; physicalism; dualism; neuroscience; consciousness; free will; process philosophy; panpsychism; panexperientialism; panentheism; emergence theory; science and religion; theism; Philosophy of Religion; Religionsfilosofi;

    Abstract : This thesis philosophically examines, critically discusses, and proposes how a plausible philosophical framework of consciousness and free will should be formulated. This framework takes into account contemporary scientific research on human consciousness and free will and its possible challenges; also it is examined how this framework should be related to theistic beliefs – especially those connected to human and divine consciousness and free will.

  2. 2. Brain Structure and Function in Adolescents with Atypical Anorexia Nervosa

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gaia Olivo; Helgi B. Schiöth; Christian Benedict; Jessica Mwinyi; Andreas Jansen; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; functional MRI; fMRI; magnetic resonance imaging; neuroimaging; brain imaging; anorexia nervosa; eating disorders; neuroscience; adolescents; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Atypical anorexia nervosa (AAN) has a high incidence in adolescents, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. The weight loss is generally less pronounced than that experienced in full-syndrome anorexia nervosa (AN), but the medical consequences can be as severe. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dream Experience - Phenomenology meets Cognitive Neuroscience

    University dissertation from Lennart Karlsson, Dept. of Philosophy, Lund University

    Author : Lennart Karlsson; [2002]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Philosophical logic; dream symbolism; neuroscience; delusional states; visual awareness; lucid dreaming; Phenomenology; dreaming; Teoretisk filosofi; logik;

    Abstract : This treatise examines what I call the ‘traditional view’ on the phenomenology of dreaming. According to this view, dreams are experienced in more or less the same way as waking reality – that is, our experience of “being-in-the-dream” is very much like our experience of “being-in-the-world”.

  4. 4. Machine learning for identification of brain activity patterns with applications in gentle touch processing

    University dissertation from Lennart Karlsson, Dept. of Philosophy, Lund University

    Author : Malin Björnsdotter Åberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Somatosensory; Machine learning; Pattern recognition; fMRI; Support vector machines; Neuroscience; Brain; BOLD; Signal processing; Artificial intelligence; Touch; Human; Unmyelinated; Sensory; Affective;

    Abstract : Since the first mention of artificial intelligence in the 1950s, the field of machine learning has provided increasingly appealing tools for recognition of otherwise unintelligible pattern representations in complex data structures. Human brain activity, acquired using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), is a prime example of such complex data where the utility of pattern recognition has been demonstrated in a wide range of studies recently (Haynes et al.

  5. 5. The reserve concept in patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment – new approaches

    University dissertation from Lennart Karlsson, Dept. of Philosophy, Lund University

    Author : Sindre Rolstad; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroscience; cognition; neuropsychology;

    Abstract : The concept of reserve stems from the observation that premorbid factors, e.g. education, result in variation in the response to any kind of brain pathology. As subjects with higher reserve tolerate more neuropathology, symptomatic expression of pathology is delayed. READ MORE
