  1. 1. Central vestibular compensation : the role of the GABAB receptor

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Anna Magnusson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The remarkable capacity for adaptive plastic changes in response to changed internal or external conditions is a distinctive feature of the vestibular system. Even in adults the system can be modified throughout life due to altered conditions caused by disease. trauma, medical treatment or normal ageing. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to investigate visual-vestibular interactions in healthy subjects and in patients with a well defined unilateral vestibular lesion (vestibular schwannoma before and six months after translabyrinthine surgery). Visual information is particularly important for balance control during perturbed stance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Vestibular control of body orientation in lamprey

    Author : Elena Pavlova; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Postural control; orientation; vision; vestibular system; visuo-vestibular interaction; vestibular compensation; locomotion; supraspinal control; lamprey;

    Abstract : Maintenance of body orientation (postural control) is a vital motor function of the brain. The general goal of this project was to understand the organization and operation of neuronal networks responsible for postural control. The lamprey (a lower vertebrate) was used as a model animal.
