  1. 6. Novel approaches to explore mechanisms of epileptic seizures - optogenetic and chemogenetic manipulation of hippocampal circuitry

    University dissertation from Experimental Epilepsy Group

    Author : Fredrik Berglind; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Seizure; epileptogenesis; optogenetics; NpHR; ChR2; DREADD; hippocampus; in vivo; mouse;

    Abstract : Epilepsy comprises a family of neurological disorders characterized by recurrent seizures, which can be highly debilitating. Up to 30% of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy, the most common form of the disorder in adults, arising in the hippocampus, cannot be effectively treated by current pharmaceuticals. READ MORE

  2. 7. Neuromodulation via endocannabinoids and nitric oxide in the lamprey spinal cord

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Alexandros Kyriakatos; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The overall objective of this thesis is to increase our understanding of neural networks generating locomotion. These networks called Central Pattern Generators (CPG), are localized in the spinal cord and can generate the basic locomotor pattern in the absence of sensory or supraspinal inputs. READ MORE

  3. 8. Masticatory function in people with dental implants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Dental Medicine

    Author : Anastasios Grigoriadis; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In use, since the 1960´s, dental implants have been reported to allow chewing that is as efficient as with natural dentition. However, input from periodontal mechanoreceptors (PMRs) around the tooth is important for sensorimotor regulation of biting and chewing. READ MORE

  4. 9. Glutamate and GABA signalling components in the human brain and in immune cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Amol K. Bhandage; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are the principal excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters in the central nervous system (CNS). They both can activate their ionotropic and metabotropic receptors. READ MORE

  5. 10. Modulation of cellular mechanisms in a spinal locomotor network

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Jesper Tegnér; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuronal Network; Calcium Channels; Calcium-DependentPotassium Channels; Neuronal Oscillator; Neuromodulation; GABAg receptors; Lamprey; Locomotion; Spinal Cord; Computer Simulation;

    Abstract : Neuronal networks generate behaviour. Thus, to understandbehaviour requires information on how neuronal networks work in termsof their cellular cornponents. The overall aim of this work has beento link proccsses occuring at an ionic level to the operation of aneural network specialized for undulatory locomotion. READ MORE
