  1. 1. Metaheuristic Algorithms for Spatial Multi-Objective Decision Making

    Author : Olive Niyomubyeyi; Centrum för geografiska informationssystem (GIS-centrum); []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geographic Information System GIS ; Multi-Objective Optimization MOO ; Spatial Decision Making; Metaheuristic Algorithms; Disaster management; Urban planning;

    Abstract : Spatial decision making is an everyday activity, common to individuals and organizations. However, recently there is an increasing interest in the importance of spatial decision-making systems, as more decision-makers with concerns about sustainability, social, economic, environmental, land use planning, and transportation issues discover the benefits of geographical information.

  2. 2. Imaging the tumor microenvironment : the dynamics and modification of hypoxia

    Author : Anna Ljungkvist; Peggy L. Olive; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiology; tumor microenvironment; double hypoxic marker method; proliferation; hypoxia; hypoxic half-life; Radiologisk forskning; Radiological research; Radiologisk forskning; diagnostisk radiologi; Diagnostic Radiology;

    Abstract : The tumor vasculature is poor and heterogeneous which may result in inadequate oxygenation and changed energy status. In addition the balance between cell proliferation and the rate of cell death is disturbed, which results in tumor growth. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Cerebello-Olivary Feedback System

    Author : Fredrik Bengtsson; Neurofysiologi; []

    Abstract : The pathway from the deep cerebellar nuclei to the inferior olive, the nucleo-olivary pathway, is known to be inhibitory. The physiological and temporal properties, as well as the localisation, of the nucleo-olivary pathway were characterised in the decerebrate ferret. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cerebellar Control of Classical Conditioning

    Author : Magnus Ivarsson; Neurofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Associative module; Bilateral; Orbicularis oculi muscle; Inferior olive; Purkinje cell; Eyeblink; Conditioned response; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology;

    Abstract : It has previously been shown that the cerebellum is critical for classical conditioning. The experiments presented in this thesis aimed to study how the cerebellum controls conditioned eyeblink responses (CRs) and specifically the efferent path from the cerebellar cortex to the muscles.

    Abstract : This study provides a diachronic view of the interweaving of space and sexuality, their interdependency and mutually constitutive aspects, in seven South African English language novels from the early twentieth century until the first decade of the twenty-first century. A key contention is that it is precisely a co-constitutive depiction of space and sexuality that has arisen in this literature as a response to a socio-political climate which has exercised harsh regulation in these two areas.
