    Author : Thomas Carlsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; Pharmacological sciences; pharmacognosy; pharmacy; neurofysiologi; Medicin människa och djur ; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Parkinson?s disease; Serotonin; Tyrosine hydroxylase; Ventral mesenchephalon; Motor behavior; L-DOPA; GTP cyclohydrolase 1; Gene therapy; Dyskinesias; Cell transplantation; Dopamine; toxicology; Farmakologi; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi;

    Abstract : The main pathological feature in Parkinson's disease is the progressive loss of dopamine neurons in the midbrain, which in turn leads to the appearance of motor deficits such as akinesia/bradykinesia (loss/slowness of movements), rigidity, postural imbalance and tremor. To this day, there is no cure for the disease, but there are medications to relieve the symptoms. READ MORE

  2. 17. Ontogenetic and comparative aspects of cerebellar and motor development

    University dissertation from Division of Neuroscience, Department of Experimental Medical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Maria Christensson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurologi; neurophysiology; Neurology; neuropsychology; Medicine human and vertebrates ; time-translation; cross-species; cerebellum; motor adaptation; development; ferret; external granular layer; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : During the course of development the motor repertoire of animals and humans alike go through dramatic changes. New motor patterns arise; movements become coordinated, improve in precision and are at the same time continuously calibrated to the changing body dimensions. The cerebellum is critical for movement coordination and adaptation in adults. READ MORE

  3. 18. Ischemic Cell Death in the CNS - applications of a new in vitro model

    University dissertation from Tobias Cronberg, Lab for Experimental Brain Research, Wallenberg Neuroscience Center, BMC A13, 221 84 Lund

    Author : Tobias Cronberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; Neurology; astrocyte; stroke; adenosine; hyperglycaemia; glucose; free radicals; calcium; in vitro; brain ischemia; slice; neuropsychology; neurofysiologi; neurophysiology;

    Abstract : Ischemic brain damage is a common cause of death and disability. A global ischemic insult is usually the result of a transient cardiac arrest while occlusion of cerebral blood vessels leads to focal ischemic lesions, commonly termed stroke. READ MORE

  4. 19. Neurogenesis and transplantation in stroke-damaged brain

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Vladimer Darsalia; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; Neurology; Stroke; Transplantation; Stem cells; Aging; Neurogenesis; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Stroke in young adult rodents triggers neurogenesis in the damaged striatum and intact hippocampus. as stroke happens frequently in aged individuals it is of great importance to know whether aging affects brain recovery mechanisms. READ MORE

  5. 20. Neuropsychological Function After Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

    University dissertation from Department of Psychology, Lund University

    Author : Cecilia Dautovic Bergh; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Neurologi; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurology; coronary artery bypass surgery; S100B; neuropsychological function; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Despite considerable research efforts, the incidence and mechanisms of diffuse cognitive impairment after coronary artery bypass surgery are not fully understood. The aim of the dissertation was to describe cognitive changes after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and the predictors and consequences thereof. READ MORE
