  1. 1. Brain Regeneration - in vitro and in vivo studies of exercise-related effects on brain plasticity

    Author : Cecilia Bull; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; brain; neural progenitor cells; stem cells; hippocampus; corpus collosum; rat; mouse; regeneration; neurogenesis; oligodendrogenesis; irradiation; exercise;

    Abstract : Neural stem and progenitor cells in the germinal regions of the adult brain, such as the hippocampus, are of great interest, because they provide the possibility for enhanced brain plasticity or can contribute to endogenous cell replacement after injury or disease. Voluntary exercise was recently shown to robustly induce cellular and structural plasticity, thereby contributing to overall brain health. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lithium and brain plasticity - studies on glial cell changes and electroconvulsive treatment-induced amnesia in rats

    University dissertation from Molecular Psychiatry Unit

    Author : Karin Orre; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lithium; electroconvulsive seizures; mood disorder; gliogenesis; amnesia; oligodendrogenesis; myelination; NG2 cells;

    Abstract : Depression and bipolar disorder, collectively known as mood disorders, are devastating, common and often chronic illnesses. Imaging studies of patients with mood disorders have demonstrated structural changes in several brain regions implicated in mood regulation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Opioids regulate proliferation of neural progenitors. A study on the effects of opioids on adult rat hippocampal progenitors in vitro and in vivo

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Anders I. Persson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Opioid; brain; hippocampus; rat; neurogenesis; progenitor; stem cell; b-endorphin; calcium; MAPK;

    Abstract : The opioid receptors were among the first pharmacologically described brain receptors. These opioid receptors have thereafter been shown to mediate effects on proliferation and differentiation in both the embryonal and adult central nervous system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Translational research of the quaking gene Focusing on the conjunction between development and disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bryn Farnsworth; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; QKI; glia; oligodendrocyte; Alzheimer s; schizophrenia; zebrafish; statistics; morpholino; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär organismbiologi; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Organismal Biology;

    Abstract : Quaking (QKI) is an RNA binding protein involved in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Originally identified as the cause of hypomyelination in a mouse mutant, it has since been consistently implicated in a wide range of neurological diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. A study of the generation of diversity in the central nervous system

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Joanna Applequist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Developmental biology is concerned with understanding the mechanisms that govern the generation of a whole organism starting from one single cell. In the central nervous system (CNS) the development of different classes of neurons and glial cells involves both extrinsic signals and intrinsic cues that together govern the specification of different cell fates dependent on position within the CNS and the time of generation.
