  1. 1. Vestibular control of body orientation in lamprey

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    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.

  2. 2. Neural mechanisms for the visual control of spatial orientation and locomotion : Electrophysiological and behavioural studies of the supraspinal control of posture and steering in the lamprey central nervous system, with reference to visuo-motor mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Fredrik Ullén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Neural mechanisms for the supraspinal control of posture and steering, in particular visuo- motor control and visuo-vestibular interaction in postural control, were investigated, using the lamprey as a model system. Behavioural experiments on intact and chronically lesioned animals, intra- and extracellular recordings in vitro and retrograde staining of neurons with horseradish peroxidase were utilized. READ MORE
