  1. 1. The matter of white matter in Alzheimer's disease. -On white matter disease from neuropathology and neuroimaging to clinical presentation

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Martin Sjöbeck; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; patologisk anatomi; Patologi allmän ; pathological anatomy; General pathology; medicinsk instrumentering; tomografi; radiologi; Klinisk fysiologi; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; executive dysfunction; Clinical physics; magnetic resonance imaging; diffusion tensor imaging; neuropathology; microvascular pathology; astrocytes; myelin; oligodendrocytes; white matter disease; Alzheimer s disease; neuropsychology; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neurofysiologi; Psychiatry; clinical psychology; psychosomatics; Psykiatri; klinisk psykologi; psykosomatik; Neurology;

    Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most prevalent type of dementing disorder. The cortical pathology of AD has been recognized for almost a century. In later years, an associated pathological feature of AD has been identified which affects the white matter. READ MORE

  2. 2. Schwann cells and mesenchymal stem cells as promoter of peripheral nerve regeneration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Maria Cristina Mantovani; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peripheral nerve regeneration; Schwann cell; adult stem cell; myelin; senescence;

    Abstract : The transplantation of primary Schwann cells (SC) has been shown to improve nerve regeneration. However, to monitor the survival of transplanted cells within the host, a stable labelling method is required. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neuron-glial Interaction in the Developing Peripheral Nervous System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Corell; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Schwann cell; nonmyelinating Schwann cell; myelinating Schwann cell; development; proliferation; differentiation; myelin; neural stem cell; central nervous system; peripheral nervous system; enteric nervous system; N-cadherin; GABA; GAD; GABA B receptor; baclofen; CGP55485; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is the most sophisticated organ in the mammalian body. In such a complex network, neuron-glial interaction is essential and controls most developmental processes, such as stem cell fate determination, migration, differentiation, synapse formation, ensheathment and myelination.

  4. 4. Finding Genes for Schizophrenia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karolina Åberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; psychiatric genetics; QKI; large pedigree; haplotype investigation; mRNAexpression; genetic linkage; myelin; HTR2C; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : Schizophrenia is one of our most common psychiatric diseases. It severely affects all aspects of psychological functions and results in loss of contact with reality. No cure exists and the treatments available today produce only partial relief for disease symptoms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Clusterin and Megalin in The Spinal Cord

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Grzegorz Wicher; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Neurosciences; nerve degeneration; hypoglossal nerve; chaperone; apolipoprotein; development; transcription factor; astrocyte; glial differentiation; myelin; cell signalling; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Nerve injury induces up-regulation of the chaperone protein clusterin in affected neurons and adjacent astrocytes but the functional significance of this response is unclear. We find that motor neuron survival is significantly greater in clusterin(+/+) compared to (-/-) mice. READ MORE
