  1. 1. Brain processing of experimental muscle pain and its interrelation with proprioception and muscle fatigue : positron emission tomography study

    Author : Alexander Korotkov; Docent Tomas Graven-Nielsen; A Korotkov; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movement; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tomography; Regional cerebral blood flow; Movernent; Positron emission tornography; Regional cerebral blood - flow;

    Abstract : Chronic muscle pain is a significant medical and social problem and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved is an important requirement for further development of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation methods. Experimental imaging studies have investigated functional neuroanatomy of different pain components. READ MORE

  2. 2. Imaging fear and anxiety in the human brain : Positron emission tomographic studies

    Author : Håkan Fischer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; fear; anxiety; panic; conditioning; human; brain; neuroimaging; positron emission tomography; PET; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Fear and anxiety are central human experiences. However, the relation between aspects of these aversive emotional states and brain function have previously been studied mostly in animals. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigation of Nuclear Materials with Positron Measurements

    Author : Petty Bernitt Cartemo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : depth profiling; positron beam; nuclear materials; radiation damage; positron lifetime measurements;

    Abstract : Positron Annihilation Lifetime Spectroscopy can be used to characterize radia- tion-induced material defects to subsequently optimize nuclear materials with respect to radiation damage. Nuclear Systems of the future such as Generation IV and fusion concepts demand high performance from structural materials, comprising a material's stability in highly-radiative and hot environments.

  4. 4. Search for Biomarkers in ALS and Parkinson's Disease : Positron Emission Tomography and Cerebrospinal Fluid Studies

    Author : Anders Johansson; Håkan Askmark; Lennart Persson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; ALS; Parkinson’s disease; cerebrospinal fluid; positron emission tomography; vascular endothelial growth factor; fibroblast growth factor 2; proteomics; Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry; deprenyl-D2; PIB; FDG; L-[β11C]-DOPA; Neurology; Neurologi; Neurology; neurologi;

    Abstract : New biomarkers are needed to improve knowledge about pathophysiology, in order to provide earlier correct diagnosis and to follow disease progression of the neurodegenerative diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). The aim of this thesis was to find new biomarkers for these diseases. READ MORE
