  1. 1. From Motion to Movements : Revelations by the Infant EEG

    Author : Pär Nyström; Claes von Hofsten; Riitta Hari; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Psychology; infant; brain; EEG; mirror neurons; ERP; ICA; MNS; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The introduction of high density EEG (hd-EEG) nets for easy application on subjects of all ages has improved the possibilities to investigate the development of the infant neurophysiology. This dissertation consists of three studies (I – III) that investigate the visual motion system and mirror neuron system of the infant, and methodological sections that outline the bioelectrical background and the characteristics of the methods used.

  2. 2. Infant gut microbiota, immune responses and allergic disease during childhood

    Author : Maria A. Johansson; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Christina West; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The early-life microbiota is important for postnatal immune maturation and implied in immune mediated diseases. The aim of this work was to study specific species of bacteria in the gut microbiota and relate them to immune function and allergic disease during childhood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Early-life gut microbiota and breast milk oligosaccharides in relation to childhood immune maturation and allergy

    Abstract : Atopic allergy is the most common chronic disease among children in the developed world. This high prevalence could be associated with low microbial exposure. The early gut microbiota appears to be important for immune maturation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Polyunsaturated fatty acids, maternal and infant immune responses and allergic disease in infancy

    Author : Kristina Warstedt; Malin Fagerås Böttcher; Karin Fälth-Magnusson; Karel Duchén; Marit Troye-Blomberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Background: The incidence of allergic diseases in industrialized countries has increased, and a relation between allergy and dietary fatty acids has been proposed. Modulation of the maternal immune function during pregnancy may have an impact on future clinical outcome in the child. READ MORE

  5. 5. Can fish oil in pregnancy and lactation alter maternal and infant immunological responses and prevent allergy in the offspring?

    Author : Catrin Furuhjelm; Karel Duchén; Karin Fälth-Magnusson; Catarina Almqvist Malmros; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Background: A connection has been proposed between the increase of allergic disease and the altered composition of fatty acids in the diet in the westernised world. Less oily fish and more vegetable oil are consumed today compared to 50-100 years ago. READ MORE
