  1. 1. Visual influences on vestibular compensation and postural control

    Author : Anna Hafström; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; Medicin människa och djur ; Vestibular schwannoma; Alcohol intoxication.; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Vestibular deafferentation; Visual-vestibular interactions; Subjective visual horizontal and vertical; Visual dependence; Utriculus; Balance; Vision; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to investigate visual-vestibular interactions in healthy subjects and in patients with a well defined unilateral vestibular lesion (vestibular schwannoma before and six months after translabyrinthine surgery). Visual information is particularly important for balance control during perturbed stance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prognostic factors for outcome of benign skull base lesions: The vestibular schwannoma model

    Author : Abdul Rahman Mohummad Al-Shudifat; Neurokirurgi; []
    Keywords : Skull base tumors; Vestibular schwannoma; Prognostic factors;

    Abstract : Skull base tumors comprise different pathological entities, making establishment of management guidelines challenging. All trials to define the ideal outcome measurement which can be reflected on treatment and prognosis improvement, are not conclusive with a lot of methodological criticism. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Human Vestibular Aqueduct, Endolymphatic Duct and Sac : A Morphological Study Using Micro-CT, Super Resolution Immunohistochemistry and Synchrotron Phase Contrast Imaging

    Author : Charlotta Kämpfe Nordström; Helge Rask-Andersen; Göran Laurell; Claes Möller; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endolymphatic sac; endolymphatic duct; vestibular aqueduct; Meniere s disease; LVAS; micro-CT; synchrotron phase contrast imaging; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The inner ear lies sheltered in the temporal bone and consists of basically three parts: the cochlea (the hearing organ), the vestibular (the balance organ), and the endolymphatic duct (ED) and endolymphatic sac (ES). The ES and ED are located in a bony canal, the vestibular aqueduct (VA), located on the medial side of the vestibule. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of Genetic Alterations in Patients Affected with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 and its Associated Tumors

    Author : Caisa Marie Hansson; Jan P. Dumanski; Juha Kere; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Neurofibromatosis type 2; schwannoma; schwannomatosis; meningioma; array-CGH; chromosome 22; DNA copy number variation; methylation; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is an autosomal dominant disorder with the clinical hallmark of bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VS). Patients affected by a severe NF2 phenotype also presents with peripheral schwannomas, meningiomas and ependymomas. The closely related disorder schwannomatosis also displays multiple schwannomas, but never VS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adaptation and learning in postural control

    Author : Fredrik Tjernström; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Postural control; Adaptation; Learning; Sensory reweighting;

    Abstract : The importance of the ability to use bipedal stance and gait in everyday life cannot be underestimated. Bipedal stance is learned during childhood and constantly adapted to changing circumstances throughout life. Failure to attain and maintain the control of upright posture can have catastrophic consequences. READ MORE
