  1. 1. Brains, genes and environment of suicide attempters

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Vang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; suicide; attempted suicide; self-injury; factor analysis; psychometrics; suicide assessment scale; cortisol; hpa-axis; hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis; depression; adjustment disorder; serotonin transporter; 5HTTLPR; adversities; negative life events; globus pallidus; caudate nucleus; SPECT; MRI; volumetry; dichotic listening; brain lateralization; functional brain asymmetry;

    Abstract : Identification of symptoms or biological abnormalities that predispose to suicide or identifies specific vulnerabilities, may one day improve allocation of resources or help tailor treatment to the patient. Paper I: We compared the predictive value of symptom-oriented questions against direct questions about suicidality in assessing risk for suicide attempts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tolerance and injury mechanisms in the developing CNS

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Malin Gustavsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hypoxia-ischemia; neonatal; brain; PARP-1; tolerance; global gene expression; apoptosis; cerebral blood flow;

    Abstract : The pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the development of hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brain injury has been the subject of extensive research yet a neuroprotective strategy to limit its progression is lacking.OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present thesis was to obtain a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in neonatal HI, specifically to study I) the involvement of Poly ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)-1 in HI, II) the effect of hypoxic PC on brain injury and function after HI in the long-term perspective, III) the effect of hypoxic PC on global gene expression, in particular the involvement of apoptosis related genes, and IV) the vascular response to hypoxic PC.

    Abstract : DEGREE OF LICENTIATE IN PSYCHOLOGY Abstract Viken, J. I. (2011). The importance of lateralized and nonlateralized sub-symptoms of visuospatial neglect as predictors of functional dependency after stroke. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure-Dynamics relationship in basalganglia: Implications for brain function

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Jyotika Bahuguna; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Computational Modeling; Basal ganglia; network dynamics; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I have used a combination of computational models such as mean field and spikingnetwork simulations to study various sub-circuits of basal ganglia. I first studied the striatum(chapter 2), which is the input nucleus of basal ganglia. READ MORE

  5. 5. Endocrine modulators and sexual differentiation in Japanese quail : With emphasis on the neuroendocrine system

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Krister Halldin; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Japanese quail; sexual behavior; endocrine disruption; sexual differentiation; estrogen; estrogen receptors; avian; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Ecotoxicology; ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Chemical disruption of the endocrine system in various animal species is currently attracting considerable interest, but avian models are not yet widely used in studying endocrine disturbances. This thesis shows the occurrence of alterations in sexual behavior and reproductive organs in adult Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) following embryonic exposure to estrogen-like chemicals.
