    Abstract : For more than a decade it has been known that human skin is supplied with a system of slowly conducting unmyelinated afferents that respond strongly to innocuous skin deformation (Nordin, 1990; Vallbo et al., 1993). READ MORE

  3. 3. Prostate cancer sensor combining Raman spectroscopy and tactile resonance technology

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Morgan Nyberg; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2011]

    Abstract : Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common cancer type among men in Sweden. The most prevalent curative treatment for PCa is radical prostatectomy (RP), i.e., complete surgical removal of the prostate. READ MORE

  4. 4. Auditory and Olfactory Abilities in Blind and Sighted Individuals More Similarities than Differences

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm University

    Author : Stina Cornell Kärnekull; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; absolute threshold; audition; autobiographical memory; blindness; discrimination; episodic recognition; identification; imagery; judgments of learning; memory; metacognition; olfaction; onset age of blindness; reminiscence bump; sensory compensation; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Blind individuals face various challenges in everyday life because of the lack of visual input. However, since they need to rely on the non-visual senses for everyday tasks, for instance, when navigating the environment, the question has been raised as to whether perceptual and cognitive abilities in these senses may be enhanced.

  5. 5. Pedicled and free TRAM flaps in breast reconstructions : a comparative study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Åsa Edsander-Nord; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast reconstruction; TRAM; pedicled flap; free flap; microdialysis; monitoring; flap circulation; flap metabolism; glucose; lactate; glycerol; abdominal muscles; trunk muscle strength; KIN-COM; quantitative sensory testing; tactile perception threshold; thermal perception threshold; breast volume; thermoplastic; quality of life; SF-36; esthetic evaluation; applanation tonometry;

    Abstract : The transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (TRAM) flap is frequently used when autologous tissue is desired for breast reconstruction, and it can be transferred pedicled or free. The pedicled TRAM flap is elevated as a lower transverse abdominal flap with the rectus abdominis muscle attached in the epigastric area, by which means the deep superior epigastric vessels nourish the flap.
