  1. 1. Discovery of Novel Receptors for Lipid Mediators - a study leading to the identification of receptors involved in metabolism and the immune system

    Author : Niclas Nilsson; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk biologi; Clinical biology; Thiazolidinedione; SCFA; FFA; FFA2R; FFA1R; GPR43; GPR41; GPR40; BLT2; GPCR; Orphan; Receptor;

    Abstract : Intercellular communication is of crucial importance in regulating physiology and G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) have evolved as an important mechanism in this process. Of the approximately 800 human GPCRs, about 160 are still considered to be “orphan” receptors for which an endogenous ligand remains to be identified. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mast Cell Migration in Inflammatory Diseases

    Author : Niclas Olsson; Gunnar Nilsson; Jaroslaw Dastych; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; Mast cells; chemotaxis; inflammation; Patologi; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : Mast cells (MCs) are forceful multifunctional effector cells of the immune system. MCs are normally distributed throughout connective and mucosal tissues, but in several pathological conditions accumulation of MCs occur. READ MORE

  3. 3. Robust design : Accounting for uncertainties in engineering

    Author : David Lönn; Larsgunnar Nilsson; Niclas Strömberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Robust optimisation; robust design; robustness; meta model; sensitivity analysis; Solid mechanics; Fastkroppsmekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns optimization of structures considering various uncertainties. The overall objective is to find methods to create solutions that are optimal both in the sense of handling the typical load case and minimising the variability of the response, i.e. robust optimal designs.

  4. 4. Blindness and Second Language Acquisition : Studies of Cognitive Advantages in Blind L1 and L2 speakers

    Author : Helena Smeds; Niclas Abrahamsson; Lars-Göran Nilsson; Loraine Obler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Early blindness; late blindness; L1 speakers; L2 speakers; cognitive advantages; second language acquisition; phonological short-term memory; recognition memory; episodic memory; speech perception in noise; accentedness in L2 speech; tvåspråkighet; Bilingualism;

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to investigate whether blind individuals display cognitive advantages over sighted individuals with regard to second language acquisition. Previous studies from neuropsychology have indicated that this is the case. READ MORE
