1. Hypothalamic neuronal circuits involved in the regulation of food intake and body weight : Histochemical studies in lean rats and obese mutant mice
Sammanfattning : Obesity is a major health problem because of its dramatic increase in prevalence and its association with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart diseases, hypertension and stroke. It is well known that signals generated in response to feeding behavior are integrated in the brain. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are the principal excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters in the central nervous system (CNS). They both can activate their ionotropic and metabotropic receptors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Humans and animals acquire the parasite Toxoplasma gondii through contaminated food or water, upon which the parasite rapidly disseminates in the host. In immunocompetent individuals, this acute phase is transient and leads to chronic colonization of preferentially the central nervous system (CNS). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Impulses coming from peripheries are modified in the spinal cord and transmitted to the brain. Several neurotransmitters have been involved in the processing of impulses in the spinal dorsal horn. Acetylcholine (ACh) is one of many neurotransmitters involved in the regulation of nociception in the spinal cord. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a common technique for imaging brain activity in humans. However, the fMRI signal stems from local changes in oxygen level rather than from neuronal excitation. LÄS MER
