  1. 1. Muscle Thixotropy Implications for Human Motor Control

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hans Axelson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Motor control; Skeletal muscle; Thixotropy; History-dependent; EMG; Voluntary contractions; Neurovetenskap; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Neurology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Neurologi;

    Abstract : Human skeletal muscles possess thixotropic, i.e. history-dependent mechanical properties. This means that the degree of passive muscle stiffness and resting tension is dependent on the immediately preceding history of contractions and length changes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human muscle spindles complex morphology and structural organisation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jing-Xia Liu; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : human; muscle spindIe; intrafusal fiber; aging; biceps brachii; deep muscles of the neck; MyHC; mATPase; SERCA; Human Anatomy; anatomi; muscle spindle;

    Abstract : Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental studies of spinal mechanisms associated with muscle fatigue

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ivana Kalezic; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : Muscle fatigue; Monosynaptic reflex; Presynaptic Inhibition; Recurrent Inhibition; Fusimotor System; Fos-immunoreactivity; Referral Pain; kirurgi; Surgery; muscle fatigue; monosynaptic reflex; presynaptic inhibition; recurrent inhibition; fusimotor system; referral pain;

    Abstract : Muscle fatigue is ubiquitous in every day life.Muscle fatigue might be considered as an altered state of motor behaviour, which impairs motor performance. By contrast, muscle fatigue could also be considered a positive phenomenon, which protects muscle tissue from damage that might be incurred to it by overuse. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cross transfer effects after unilateral muscle overuse an experimental animal study about alterations in the morphology and the tachykinin system of muscles

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Yafeng Song; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Triceps surae; overuse; contralateral; muscle; muscle fiber; MyHC; capillary; tachykinin; substance P; NK-1R; inflammation; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Unilateral exercise can produce certain contralateral strength effects. Deleterious events can be cross-transferred as well, as illustrated by a strict symmetry in some chronic inflammatory diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. Laminins and Congenital Muscular Dystrophy - From a Mouse Model to Gene Therapy of Laminin alpha2 chain deficiency?

    University dissertation from Faculty of Medicine, Department of Experimental Medical Science

    Author : Kinga Gawlik; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; laminin; muscular dystrophy; gene therapy; Histology; cytochemistry; histochemistry; tissue culture; Histologi; cytokemi; histokemi; vävnadskultur; Genetics; cytogenetics; cytogenetik; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muskelsystem; reumatologi; Genetik;

    Abstract : Gene therapy holds great promise for treating many genetic diseases, including muscular dystrophies. Mutations in the gene encoding laminin alpha2 chain ? an extracellular protein prominently expressed in the neuromuscular system ? cause a severe neuromuscular disorder: congenital muscular dystrophy type 1A (MDC1A).
