  1. 1. On VEGF and related factors in neurotrauma

    Author : Mattias Sköld; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Spinal cord; brain; motoneuron; VEGF; VEGFR1; VEGFR2; Np1; Np2; Sema3A; HIF1alpha;

    Abstract : At present, there is no cure for traumatic spinal cord and brain injuries. Therapies in use have only modest effect on outcome. Therefore, the need to better understand the biology of traumatic CNS injuries, making development of new therapies possible, is huge. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pharmacological and Developmental Aspects on Neuronal Plasticity

    Author : Lisa Bjartmar; Jan Marcusson; Elias Eriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Neuronal plasticity means the ability of the brain, its cells and networks to adapt and adjust to new challenges, a process which is ongoing throughout life. The goal of this thesis was to gain better understanding of the molecular events that follow different types of stimulations of brain structures such as the hippocampus, a key region for cognitive functions with overriding control on the corticosteroid system.
