  1. 1. Functional Recovery after Experimental Stroke in Mice- Involvement of Enriched Environment, BDNF and Cell Genesis

    Author : Josefine Nygren; Sektion IV; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; neurophysiology; Neurologi; Neurology; neuropsychology; functional recovery; focal ischemia; cell genesis; BDNF; enriched environment; mice;

    Abstract : Stroke is caused by an obstruction of blood flow to a part of the brain, resulting in brain damage. Stroke is the third most common cause of death in the industrialized world, and the primary cause of adult-onset disability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Enriched, task specific therapy in the chronic phase after stroke

    Author : Sara Vive; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; enriched environment; rehabilitation; intense training; qualitative research; gait analysis; gait speed; function; activity; participation; health;

    Abstract : Recovery and improvement of motor functions and abilities after stroke depend on the spontaneous recovery process but also on the reorganization of neural mechanisms. In animal studies, an Enriched Environment (EE) has proved to be an effective intervention for boosting brain plasticity and recovery after stroke. READ MORE

  3. 3. Designing guidance along audio-haptically augmented paths in a city environment

    Author : Delphine Szymczak; Certec - Rehabiliteringsteknik och Design; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Activity theory; Cultural historical; design; evaluation; iterative design; user-centered design; audio-tactile; multimodal; mobile; pedestrian navigation; scanning; tourist guide; vibration; in-use; focus; environment;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this thesis is to show in a case study how it is possible to inform, with Activity Theory, the design and evaluation of a pedestrian navigation system that uses audio-tactile feedback. The case study consists of an iterative design process that results in a tourist guide application used in a mobile phone. READ MORE

  4. 4. Virtual Reality for Enriched Rehabilitation of Stroke Patients with Spatial Neglect : Diagnostics and the Rehabilitation Effect on Spatial Attention and Neuronal Activity

    Author : Helena Fordell; Jan Malm; Anders Eklund; Hanne Krarup Christensen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stroke; spatial neglect; rehabilitation; virtual reality; enriched environment; fMRI;

    Abstract : Background: Approximately a third of all stroke patients develop spatial neglect, a debilitating symptom associated with poor outcome. Spatial neglect is clinically defined as a deficit in processing and responding to stimuli presented on the contralesional side of the body, or the space surrounding that side of the body. READ MORE

  5. 5. A room designed for caring : Experiences from an evidence-based designed intensive care environment

    Author : Fredrika Sundberg; Maria Henricson; Högskolan i Borås; []
