    Author : Emil Bojsen-Møller; Maria Ekblom; Jonna Nilsson; Carl-Johan Boraxbekk; Teresa Liu-Ambrose; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Movement behavior; Physical activity; Sedentary behavior; cognitive functions; neuroplasticity; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : The lifetime trajectories of movement behavior and cognitive functioning depend on complex interactions between genetic and environmental factors. There is substantial evidence suggesting that physical activity benefits cognitive functions. However, how sedentary behavior and the composition of movement behaviors (i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adapt, Survive or Die - Metabolic Imbalances and the Enteric Nervous System

    Author : Ulrikke Voss; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; enteric nervous system; high fat diet; neuropathy; neuroplasticity; metabolic imbalance;

    Abstract : Abstract: In this thesis the questions “do enteric neurons adapt to survive in conditions of obesity/type 2-diabetes (T2D) related metabolic imbalances? Or do they die?” are asked. Obese and T2D patients have high rates of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. READ MORE

  3. 3. Endogenous and treatment-induced neuroplasticity in mouse models of Parkinson's disease

    Author : Francesco Bez; Basala gangliernas patofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Parkinson´s disease (PD) is an age-related neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a loss of nigral dopamine (DA) neurons that project their axons to the striatum. Striatal DA depletion causes the typical motor symptoms of PD. READ MORE

  4. 4. Neuroplasticity and neurorestoration in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease: Experimental studies in the mouse

    Author : Veronica Francardo; Basala gangliernas patofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Neuroplasticity is the brain´s capacity to respond to inner and outer challenges with functional and structural reorganizations. An aberrant activation of neuroplasticity pathways may contribute to the development of neurological disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Balance and gait in Parkinson’s disease : from perceptions to performance

    Author : Hanna Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to explore perceptions and performance of balance and gait in people with Parkinson’s disease (PwPD), and to evaluate both the current evidence for exercise-induced neuroplasticity and the feasibility of investigating exercise-induced neuroplastic changes among PwPD. This thesis includes four papers of different designs; a qualitative interview study (paper I), a systematic review and meta-analysis (paper II), a pilot RCT (paper III) and a crosssectional study (paper IV).
