    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Big Data; Apache Spark; Virtual Screening; EEG; Cloud Computing; Life Sciences; Machine Learning; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : We are experiencing a deluge of data in all fields of scientific and business research, particularly in the life sciences, due to the development of better instrumentation and the rapid advancements that have occurred in information technology in recent times. There are major challenges when it comes to handling such large amounts of data. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neurogenic and angiogenic actions of electroconvulsive seizures in adult rat brain

    Abstract : In the current thesis, the neurogenic and angiogenic response to electroconvulsive seizure (ECS)-treatment was investigated in the adult rat brain. ECS-treatment is an animal model for the antidepressant treatment electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), which is considered to be the most effective antidepressant treatment modality today, however with not yet fully understood modes of action.

  3. 3. Temperature management after cardiac arrest, postanoxic injury and neurological recovery

    Author : Anna Lybeck; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac arrest; target temperature mangement; outcome; neuroprognostication; seizures; EEG; Cardiac arrest; target temperature mangement; outcome; neuroprognostication; seizures; EEG;

    Abstract : In patients admitted alive to hospital after cardiac arrest the most common mode of death is withdrawal of life sustaining therapy due to brain injury. This decicion is preceeed by multimodal neuroprognostication, which includes clinical examination, neurophysiological tests, imagning and serum markers of braininjury. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lithium and brain plasticity - studies on glial cell changes and electroconvulsive treatment-induced amnesia in rats

    Author : Karin Orre; Enheten för psykiatrisk neuromodulering (PNU); []

    Abstract : When anti-epileptic drugs fail, and epilepsy surgery is found unfeasible or ineffective, there remains a group of at least 25% of children with epilepsy in whom seizure control cannot be achieved. Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is an adjunctive treatment for medically refractory epilepsy. READ MORE
