  1. 1. Ischemic Cell Death in the CNS - applications of a new in vitro model

    Author : Tobias Cronberg; Sektion IV; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; Neurology; astrocyte; stroke; adenosine; hyperglycaemia; glucose; free radicals; calcium; in vitro; brain ischemia; slice; neuropsychology; neurofysiologi; neurophysiology;

    Abstract : Ischemic brain damage is a common cause of death and disability. A global ischemic insult is usually the result of a transient cardiac arrest while occlusion of cerebral blood vessels leads to focal ischemic lesions, commonly termed stroke. READ MORE

  2. 2. Variations in Functional Lateralization

    Author : Peter E Wendt; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; posterior association cortex; prefrontal; DLPFC; regional cerebral blood flow; normal subjects; lateralization; asymmetry; performance; creativity.; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi; cognitive; ethanol; activation; visual stimulation; functional; verbal; divergent; spatial;

    Abstract : The general aim of this thesis was to study asymmetric activation of the neocortex in normal subjects, using the rCBF technique and different cognitive tasks. The aim was also to study individual and group variations of asymmetric activation, as well as factors pertaining to these variations. The thesis is based on four investigations. READ MORE

  3. 3. ´Personality in action.´ Strategy measurement in computerized neuropsychological tests

    Author : Ann Wirsén Meurling; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; computerized tests; strategy; personality; neuropsychology; Neurology; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : "Personality determines very largely the use a person makes of his intellectual gifts" (Eysenck, 1988). Computerization of neuropsychological tests has made possible a detailed analysis of both quantitative and qualitative aspects of a person´s test performance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Targeted gene transfer in the developing central nervous system using viral vectors

    Author : Simon Stott; Brain Repair and Imaging in Neural Systems (BRAINS); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; gene transfer; in utero; neonatal; GDNF; nigrostriatal; dopamine; AAV; retrovirus; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Dopamine (DA) is a neurotransmitter that plays a fundamental role in many aspects of normal brain function. The majority of DA neurons in the brain reside in one region ? the midbrain ? and project axonal connections to specific areas. One of the main target regions of the DA system is the striatum.

  5. 5. PACAP in adult sensory neurons - implications in injury and pain

    Author : Helen Jongsma Wallin; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peripheral nerve injury; PAC1; PACAP; neurotrophin; neuropeptide; inflammatory pain; inflammation; gracile nuclei; DRG; formalin test; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; trk;

    Abstract : The data presented in this thesis deal with the neuropeptide pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) in adult sensory neurons. We have used different injury and pain models to determine the involvement of PACAP during such conditions. The role of neurotrophins for PACAP expression was also investigated. READ MORE
