  1. 1. Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Tractography of the Visual Pathways

    Author : Ylva Lilja; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diffusion tensor imaging; Visual pathways; Tractography; Temporal lobe resection; Pituitary adenomas;

    Abstract : The visual pathways are essential for human vision, stretching from the retinas of the eyes, via the anterior visual pathways and the optic radiations, to the primary visual cortex in the occipital lobe. Injury to these structures will lead to visual impairment – from small deficits to blindness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biologically-Based Interactive Neural Network Models for Visual Attention and Object Recognition

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Mohammad Saifullah; Arne Jönsson; Christian Balkenius; Anders Lansner; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biologically-Based Models; Object Recognition; Visual Attention; Interactive Neural Network; Occlusion; Overlapping;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is to develop biologically-based computational models for object recognition. A series of models for attention and object recognition were developed in the order of increasing functionality and complexity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Visual evoked potentials in the horse

    University dissertation from ; Department of Clinical Sciences, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Lena Ström; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Vision is an important sense for horses, both for survival in the wild and when horses are used for work, sport or recreation. However, it is often difficult to diagnose visual impairment in this species. READ MORE

  4. 4. Visual outcome, ocular findings, and visual processing skills after allogeneic stem cell transplantation in children

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

    Author : Alba Lucia Törnquist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Stem cell transplantation (SCT) offers a chance of cure in children with leukaemia and other life-threatening haematological, immunological, and metabolic diseases that do not respond to conventional treatment. Pre and post SCT, these children receive irradiation, and/or chemotherapy and immunosuppressive agents which like the primary disease may adversely affect the eye, the central nervous system as well as the posterior visual pathways and potentially threaten vision.

  5. 5. The Serotonin Transporter and the Vesicular Monoamine Transporters During Development

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

    Author : Stefan R Hansson; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; whiskers; lateral geniculate; infraorbital nerve; neural crest; merkel; somatosensory cortex; Key wordscitalopram; thalamus; visual cortex; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : In the present study, the mRNA encoding the serotonin transporter (5-HTT) and two isoforms of the vesicular monoamine transporters (VMAT1 and VMAT2) have been mapped in the rat throughout gestation and early postnatal development using in situ hybridization, RT PCR and immunohistochemistry. 5-HTT mRNA was found in serotonergic neurons and VMAT2 mRNA in all monoaminergic neurons from early gestation.
