    Abstract : Today, dementia such as, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), vascular diseases and motor neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), represent a major public health problem. For instance, PD affect to more than 10 million people worldwide and almost 50 million people are affected by dementia. READ MORE

  2. 2. Serotonergic aspects on high consumption of alcohol in humans. Experimental and clinical studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Matts Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]

    Abstract : In animal studies an association between alcohol intake and central serotonergic function has been demonstrated. There are also evidence for altered serotonergic neurotransmission in subgroups of alcohol-dependent subjects. READ MORE

  3. 3. The diagnostic challenge of Parkinsonian syndromes. Clinical and laboratory evaluation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Björn Holmberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parkinson s disease; MSA; PSP; autonomic tests; differential diagnosis; levodopa test; NFL; GFAP;

    Abstract : Background: The differentiation between Parkinson's disease (PD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) may be difficult, but it is important for prognostic and therapeutic purposes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the differential diagnostic capacity of laboratory tests in a population of patients fulfilling strict clinical criteria for these disorders. READ MORE

  4. 4. Calcium signaling in astroglial cells. Noradrenergic effects and regulation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Håkan Muyderman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Astrocytes; Neurons; Noradrenaline; Glutamate; Fluorometry; Fura-2; Fluo-3; PBFI; Digital imaging; Voltage-patch-clamp; Whole-cell currents; Calcium; Potassium; Intercellular communication; Glutamate release; Neuron-glial interactions.;

    Abstract : Astroglial cells are the most common cell type in the central nervous system and express a wide array of ion channels and neurotransmitter receptors. The cells organize into multicellular networks and exhibit a calcium-based excitability in which receptor-mediated calcium elevations propagate as intercellular waves over considerable distances.
