  1. 1. Death mechanisms compromising hippocampal neurogenesis after status epilepticus

    University dissertation from Christine Ekdahl Clementson; [email protected]

    Author : Christine Ekdahl Clementson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; minocycline; lipopolysaccharide; microglia activation; status epilepticus; epilepsy; cysteinyl aspartate-specific proteases; apoptosis; neurogenesis; progenitor cell progeny;

    Abstract : Status epilepticus (SE) leads to neurodegeneration as well as neurogenesis in the adult rat hippocampus. This thesis demonstrates that even if the neurogenic response initially is very pronounced, with a several-fold increase in cell proliferation, the survival of the newly formed neurons is compromised by a death mechanism involving mitochondria-related caspases.

  2. 2. The influence of status epilepticus on adeno-pituitary hormone secretion in man : with special reference to prolactin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Ulla Lindbom; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epilepsy; status epilepticus; prolactin; growth hormone; cortisol; thyroidstimulating hormone TSH ; thyrotropin-releasing hormone TRH ; hypothalamic-pituitary axis;

    Abstract : Epileptic seizures as well as antiepileptic drugs (AED) may interfere with the hypothalamicpituitary axis (HPA) and have neuroendocrine effects. A transient increase of prolactin (PRL) and cortisol in serum after generalised tonic-clonic or complex partial seizures has been one of the most consistent findings, although absences and myoclonic seizures, as well as seizures of very short duration, do not seem to affect PRL levels.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Personer som drabbas av hjärtstopp riskerar grava hjärnskador p.g.a. brist på blodflöde till hjärnan. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gene therapy in epilepsy: neuropeptides and neurotrophic factors

    University dissertation from Section of Restorative Neurology, Division of Neurology, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Irene Kanter Schlifke; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Normal hjärnaktivitet är beroende på en delikat balans mellan inhibitorisk och excitatorisk nervcellssignallering. Om denna balans störs och lutar mer åt en ökad excitering uppstår epileptiska anfall. READ MORE

  5. 5. Acute Symptomatic Seizure : Clinical and Experimental Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala University

    Author : Imad Halawa; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]

    Abstract : Epilepsy is defined as a condition with recurrent unprovoked seizures. When seizures are believed to be provoked they fall into another category of situation related seizures, i.e. acute symptomatic seizures (ASS). READ MORE
