  1. 1. Neuron-glial Interaction in the Developing Peripheral Nervous System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Corell; Åsa Fex Svenningsen; Klas Kullander; Helgi Schöith; Heape Anthony; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Schwann cell; nonmyelinating Schwann cell; myelinating Schwann cell; development; proliferation; differentiation; myelin; neural stem cell; central nervous system; peripheral nervous system; enteric nervous system; N-cadherin; GABA; GAD; GABA B receptor; baclofen; CGP55485; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is the most sophisticated organ in the mammalian body. In such a complex network, neuron-glial interaction is essential and controls most developmental processes, such as stem cell fate determination, migration, differentiation, synapse formation, ensheathment and myelination.

  2. 2. Aspects of the human enteric nervous system : A study of the normal development and of Hirschsprung's disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tomas Wester; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; enteric nervous system; Hirschsprung s disease; intestinal neuronal dysplasia; neuron density; nitric oxide; bcl-2; interstitial cells of Cajal; c-kit; human; fetal; development; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Thirty patients with Hirschsprung's disease (HD) who underwent Rehbein's anterior resection, using a circular stapler to perform the anastomosis, were evaluated retrospectively. The postoperative complication rate and long-term functional outcome were similar to those reported by other investigators using the same and other techniques. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Enteric Nervous System, Plasticity and Survival

    University dissertation from Katarina Sandgren, Department of Physiological Sciences, Neuroendocrine Cell Biology, BMC F10, 22184 Lund

    Author : Katarina Sandgren; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; Nitric oxide synthase; Neuropeptides; Neuronal survival; Lethal spotted mice; Interstitial cells of Cajal; Hirschsprung s disease; Cell cultures; Enteric nervous system; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with plasticity in terms of neurotransmitter expression and survival of neurons in the adult enteric nervous system (ENS). Several motility disorders have been suggested to originate in developmental defects, neurodegeneration, or insufficient innervation by the ENS. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adapt, Survive or Die - Metabolic Imbalances and the Enteric Nervous System

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Ulrikke Voss; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; enteric nervous system; high fat diet; neuropathy; neuroplasticity; metabolic imbalance;

    Abstract : Abstract: In this thesis the questions “do enteric neurons adapt to survive in conditions of obesity/type 2-diabetes (T2D) related metabolic imbalances? Or do they die?” are asked. Obese and T2D patients have high rates of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. READ MORE

  5. 5. The enteric nervous sytem and infectious diarrhoea. An experimental study in mouse and rat

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Shirin Kordasti; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rotavirus; cholera; secretion; potential difference; enteric nervous system;

    Abstract : Aim: To evaluate the role of the enteric nervous system in one of the most common types of infectious diarrhoea worldwide, rotavirus infection, and to further clarify the mechanisms behind neurally mediated intestinal secretion. Methods: The experiments were performed on neonatal and adult mice and adult rats. Experimental setups: In vitro: 1. READ MORE
