    Abstract : This thesis deals with the engineering of novel nanomaterials, particularly nanocomposites and nanostructured surfaces with enhanced functionalities. The study includes two parts; in the first part, an in situ sol-gel polymerization approach is used for the synthesis of polymer-inorganic hybrid material and its exceptional transparent UV-shielding effect has been investigated.

  2. 2. Non-linear synaptic integration on dendrites of striatal medium-spiny neuron : a computational study

    Author : Kai Du; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Striatum is the main input nucleus of basal ganglia. Medium-spiny neurons (MSNs), the principal neurons of the striatum, receive convergent excitatory inputs from cortex and thalamus, thus “gate” the information flow to the basal ganglia. READ MORE

  3. 3. Synaptic organization of nociceptive relay nuclei in the cat and primate thalamus

    Author : Ann-Charlott Ericson; Per Brodal; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The fine structure of two thalamic nociceptive relay nuclei, the nucleus submedius (Sm) in the cat, and the posterior region in the owl monkey, was investigated using anatomical tract tracing techniques, immunohistochemical staining for neuroactive substances, and threedimensional reconstructions of synaptic circuitry. Ascending lamina I axons, labeled by anterograde transport of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin, gave rise to two different types of termination in Sm: large, compact clusters of numerous boutons were predominant in the dense focus of the terminal field after a tracer injection at the site of nociceptive-specific neurons in lamina I, and boutons-of-passage type terminations were conspicuous in the periphery of a lamina I terminal field in Sm and predominant following a tracer injection at the site of thermoreceptive-specific neurons in lamina I.

  4. 4. Mucosal Immunity in Mycobacterial infections

    Author : Anna Tjärnlund; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Andrzej Pawlowski; Anders Örn; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : More than a century after the identification of the tubercle bacillus and the first attempts at vaccination, tuberculosis (TB) still remains one of the world’s most serious infectious diseases. TB, caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is typically a disease of the lung, which serves both as port of entry and as the major site of disease manifestation. READ MORE
