  1. 1. Phosphoproteomics to tackle brain disorders : Insight into the murine brain phosphoproteome

    Author : Valentina Siino; Institutionen för immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : Phosphoproteomics; mass spectrometry; brain disorders; neurobiology; phosphorylation;

    Abstract : Brain disorders affect the normal functionality of the brain causing inability in controlling certain behaviours. In the last two decades, despite the technological advancement, many biological questions concerning brain mechanisms and neural networks remain still unclear. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mass Spectrometry-based Neuroproteomics : Deciphering the Human Brain Proteome

    Author : Sravani Musunuri; Jonas Bergquist; Ganna Shevchenko; Jean-Charles Sanchez; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brain; Proteomics; Mass spectrometry; Alzheimer s disease; Traumatic brain injury; Membrane proteins; Sample preparation; Kemi med inriktning mot analytisk kemi; Chemistry with specialization in Analytical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Mammalian brain is challenging to study due to its heterogeneity and complexity. However, recent advances in molecular imaging, genomics and proteomics have contributed significantly to achieve insights into molecular basis of brain function and pathogenesis of neurological disorders.

  3. 3. Children with visual disorders : cognitive development, developmental disorders and consequences for treatment and counselling

    Author : Ulla Ek; Michael Brambring; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; visually impaired; children; development; developmental disorders; assessment; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : The causes of visual impairment and blindness has changed over the years, in Sweden and in other industrialised countries, giving rise to a new population of visually impaired children. Damages to the posterior visual pathway and the brain are now common causes of visual impairment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of Human Brain MRI : Contributions to Regional Volume Studies

    Author : Richard Nordenskjöld; Joel Kullberg; Elna-Marie Larsson; Lars Johansson; Håkan Ahlström; Göran Starck; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MRI; Brain; Volume; Hemisphere; Intracranial volume; Image analysis; Computerized Image Analysis; Datoriserad bildanalys;

    Abstract : Many disorders are associated with regional brain volumes. The analysis of these volumes from MR images often requires sequential processing steps such as localization and delineation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Imaging Anxiety : Neurochemistry in Anxiety Disorders Assessed by Positron Emission Tomography

    Author : Andreas Frick; Mats Fredrikson; Tomas Furmark; David J Nutt; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Fear; Brain; Serotonin; Neurokinin; Substance P; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Anxiety disorders, including social anxiety disorder (SAD) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are common and disabling conditions. Largely based on animal and pharmacological studies, both the serotonergic and substance P/neurokinin-1 (SP/NK1) systems have been implicated in their underlying pathology. READ MORE
