    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by a depletion of the dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. The cause of the disease is yet unknown but age, oxidative stress, and neuroinflammation are some of the features involved in the degeneration. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish I hjärnan finns många olika typer av nervceller. De använder sig av olika signalsubstanser, kallade neurotransmittorer, för att kommunicera med andra nervceller. En viss typ av nervceller använder neurotransmittorn dopamin. READ MORE

  3. 3. Parameters affecting the survival of cultured and grafted embryonic neurons

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Abstract : The extent of behavioral recovery following neural transplantation in part depends on the amount of surviving graft tissue. The main objective of this thesis was to study parameters affecting the survival of embryonic striatal and mesencephalic neurons in experimental models of Huntington's and Parkinson's disease.
