  1. 1. The laryngeal mucosa and the superior laryngeal nerve of the rat : an immunohistochemical and electron microscopic study

    Author : Siw Domeij; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Superior laryngeal nerve; paraganglia; substance P; calcitonin gene-related peptide; neuropeptide Y; vasoactive intestinal polypeptide; enkephalin; mast cells; electron microscopy; immunohistochemistry;

    Abstract : Neuropeptides are present in nerve fibers of the upper and lower airways. Local release of these substances may be of importance for the pathophysiology of airway disorders and may play a role in responses to different stimuli. However, little is known about the distribution of neuropeptides in the larynx. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nano- and Micro-sized Molecularly Imprinted Polymer Materials for Analytical Application

    Author : Keiichi Yoshimatsu; Tillämpad biokemi; []

    Abstract : Specific molecular recognition materials are important in analytical applications. It has been a longstanding dream for scientific explorers to realise a versatile method to generate materials that can recognize biological and chemical substance of interests. READ MORE

  3. 3. Brain Stem Involvement in Immune and Aversive Challenge

    Author : Jakob Paues; Anders Blomqvist; Finn Hallböök; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lipopolysaccharide; Lithium Chloride; anorexia; aversion; parabrachial; brain stem; melanocortin; CGRP; enkephalin; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Activation of the immune system by e.g. bacteria induces the acute-phase-response and sickness behaviour. The latter encompasses among other things fever, lethargy, anorexia and hyperalgesia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Neurobiological Consequences of Social Conditions and Alcohol Exposure in Adolescent rats

    Author : Linnea Granholm; Ingrid Nylander; Anne-Lie Svensson; Erika Roman; Maria Ellgren; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Adolescence represents a time of extensive reorganisation and maturation of brain circuits involved in emotions, motivation and cognition and it is a period particular sensitive for external stimuli. External stimuli can be both socio-environmental factors and exposure to exogenous compounds such as drugs of abuse (e.g. alcohol). READ MORE

  5. 5. Stress, Drugs and Neuroscience : Neurobiological Effects of Social Stressors and Drug Exposure in Young and Adolescent Rats

    Abstract : Experiences early in life or during adolescence modulate neuronal networks in the immature brain and consequently lay the foundation for future susceptibility or resilience towards psychiatric disorders. The objective in this thesis is to understand, in part, how the surrounding environment shapes the brain of a young individual. READ MORE
