  1. 1. Blood Flow in Human Skeletal Muscle : The Effect of Adrenaline and the Influence of a Small Muscle Injury

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Torbjörn Vedung; Jan Henriksson; Jan Lundvall; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adrenaline; blood flow; blood redistribution; ischemia; muscle injury; skeletal muscle; strain-gauge plethysmography; sympathetic tone; transmural pressure; 99mTechnetium clearance; tennis elbow; venous compliance; venous occlusion plethysmography; 133Xenon clearance;

    Abstract : A variety of vasoregulatory systems are involved in the complex control of blood flow inhuman skeletal muscle. The interaction between these systems where one system canoverride or modify the other makes blood flow regulation complicated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Muscle Thixotropy Implications for Human Motor Control

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hans Axelson; Karl-Erik Hagbarth; Mikael Elam; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Motor control; Skeletal muscle; Thixotropy; History-dependent; EMG; Voluntary contractions; Neurovetenskap; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Neurology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Neurologi;

    Abstract : Human skeletal muscles possess thixotropic, i.e. history-dependent mechanical properties. This means that the degree of passive muscle stiffness and resting tension is dependent on the immediately preceding history of contractions and length changes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human Skeletal Muscle : a basic proteomic approach

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of Integrative Medical Biology, Section for Anatomy, Umeå University and Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, University of Gävle, Sweden

    Author : Jenny Hadrevi; Fatima Pedrosa-Domellöf; [2009]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The trapezius is a muscle of clinical interest due to its susceptibility to chronic work related musculoslteletal disorders. The mechanisms underlying these conditions are not fully understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Satellite cells in human skeletal muscle molecular identification quantification and function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Mona Lindström; Lars-Eric Thornell; Hannu Kalimo; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; satellite cell markers; NCAM; Pax7; MyoD; myogenin; DLK1 FA1; c-Met; human skeletal muscle; immunohistochemistry; muscle growth; muscle hypertrophy; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle satellite cells located between the plasma membrane and the basal lamina of muscle fibres, could for many years, only be studied in situ by electron microscopy. The introduction of immunohistochemistry and the discovery of molecular markers of satellite cells then made them accessible for light microscopic studies and a wealth of information is today available.

  5. 5. Muscle function in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis A two-year follow-up

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Hans Lindehammar; Lars Larsson; [2004]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; arthritis; juvenile rheumatoid; physiopathology; muscle; skeletal; pathology; physiopathology; Muscular atrophy; etiology; physiopathology; arthritis; juvenile rheumatoid; complications; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Abstract : This is a study of muscle function in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease that primarily affects the synovial membrane of joints. Muscle weakness, atrophy and pain occur in adult RA. This may be a consequence of joint pain, stiffness and immobility. READ MORE
