  1. 1. Wearable sensors for monitoring epilepsy and Parkinson´s disease

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Dongni Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epilepsy; Parkinson’s disease; Wearable sensors; Continuous and objective monitoring; End users’ perceptions; Qualitative content analysis; Machine learning algorithms; Tonic-clonic seizure detection; Dose titration; Motor state recognition;

    Abstract : Introduction: Epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease (PD) are conditions where management would benefit greatly from monitoring symptoms over longer time periods in natural everyday environments instead of only intermittent assessments at clinics. Wearable technology with built-in sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, could allow continuous and objective long-term monitoring of movement patterns. READ MORE

  2. 2. Parkinson´s disease and depression : Clinical and neurobiological studies

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

    Author : Sven E Pålhagen; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parkinson´s disease. Major depressive disorder; SSRI; rCBF; CSF-biomarker;

    Abstract : Parkinson´s disease (PD) is a progressive degenerative movement disorder. PD patients also suffer from several non-motor symptoms including autonomic disturbances, cognitive decline and neuropsychiatric conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Self-management support to handle everyday life with Parkinson´s disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Abstract : Background: Being diagnosed with Parkinson´s disease (PD) is a life-altering experience. The long-term condition requires continuous adjustments to the everyday life not only of the person affected, but also for care partners. READ MORE

  4. 4. Clusterin in brain and cerebrospinal fluidin Alzheimer s disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna-Maria Nilselid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; clusterin; apolipoprotein J; SP-40; brain tissue; cerebrospinal fluid; glycosylation; biomarker; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay;

    Abstract : The apolipoprotein clusterin is suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer¡¦s disease (AD). At the start of these studies, results had indicated that clusterin was elevated in AD brain, compared with controls. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of human dopaminergic neurons in the developing mesencephalon and upon differentiation of stem cells- for replacement therapy in Parkinson´s disease

    University dissertation from Developmental Neurobiology

    Author : Jenny Nelander Wahlestedt; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parkinson´s disease; stem cells; ventral mesencephalon; dopaminergic neurons; cell replacement therapy; human fetal tissue; radial glia; microRNA; BAC recombineering; reporter cell lines;

    Abstract : Cell-replacement therapy is a promising approach for treating patients with Parkinson ́s disease (PD). For this purpose, there is a need for developing a protocol that can generate high numbers of human transplantable mesencephalic dopaminer- gic (mesDA) neurons. READ MORE
