    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mobile phone; electromagnetic radiation; Blood-brain barrier; brain; rat;

    Abstract : oday about half of the world's population owns the microwave producing mobile phones. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) protects the mammalian brain from potentially harmful substances circulating in the blood. READ MORE

  3. 8. Brain Tissue Oxygenation in Traumatic Brain Injury Experimental and Clinical Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karlis Purins; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brain tissue oxygenation; Cerebral metabolism; Traumatic brain injury; Cerebral ischemia; Threshold levels; Neurovent-PTO; Microdialysis; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability. TBI is frequently followed by cerebral ischemia which is a great contributor to secondary brain damage. The main causes of cerebral ischemia are pathophysiological changes in cerebral blood flow and metabolism. READ MORE

  4. 9. Fear, Startle, and Fear-Potentiated Startle Probing Emotion in the Human Brain

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Pissiota; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; anxiety; attention; brain; fear; fear-potentiated startle; human; neuroimaging; positron emission tomography; posttraumatic stress disorder; regional cerebral blood flow; startle; startle habituation; symptom provocation; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : The present thesis explored the neurobiological basis of three aspects of defense behaviors in humans. Positron emission tomography methodology was used, and changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were measured as an index of neural activity. READ MORE

  5. 10. Intracranial Pressure in Traumatic Brain Injury

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sima Shahsavari; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Brain Swelling; Cerebral Autoregulation; Secondary Brain Injury; Traumatic Brain Injury; Cerebral Compliance; Intracranial Dynamics; Intracranial Pressure;

    Abstract : Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) continues to be a major problem worldwide. Today, intensive care of patients with TBI is mainely focused on preventing and treating secondary brain injuries. High pressure inside the intracranial cavity (ICP) has been found to be an important feature of disturbed cerebral dynamics and secondary injuries. READ MORE
