  1. 1. United in Diversity A Physiological and Molecular Characterization of Subpopulations in the Basal Ganglia Circuitry

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Thomas Viereckel; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Glutamate; Optogenetics; Amperometry; Histology; Midbrain; Subthalamic Nucleus; Parkinson s disease; Ventral Tegmental Area; Substantia Nigra; Co-release;

    Sammanfattning : The Basal Ganglia consist of a number of different nuclei that form a diverse circuitry of GABAergic, dopaminergic and glutamatergic neurons. This complex network is further organized in subcircuits that govern limbic and motor functions in humans and other vertebrates. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mechanisms controlling midbrain dopaminergic neuron development

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Författare :Shanzheng Yang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The degeneration of midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons accounts for some of the main motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Efforts during the last decades have focused on understanding how mDA neurons are generated and maintained with the hope of developing novel stem cell-based replacement therapies. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Wnts in development : Focus on midbrain

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Författare :Emma Rakel Andersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Studies in the field of embryonic development reveal the temporal and spatial requirement of specific genes/proteins in the formation of a given tissue. The specific knowledge of which genes/proteins regulate development of the ventral midbrain (VM) provides a guideline for the in vitro differentiation of specific cell types therein, such as dopaminergic (DA) neurons.

  4. 4. Wnt/beta-catenin signaling in midbrain dopaminergic neurons

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Författare :Nina Rawal; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dopamine; neuron; development; beta-catenin; Writ; Parkin; Parkinson s disease;

    Sammanfattning : Parkinson's disease (PD) is caused by a progressive degeneration of the dopaminergic (DA) neurons of the substantia nigra. However, the mechanisms underlying the degeneration remain elusive and there is no cure for P1) at present. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Wnt pathway in ventral midbrain dopaminergic differentiation

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Författare :Diogo Ribeiro; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a debilitating neurodegenerative disease in which dopaminergic (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra are lost. Current treatments such as administration of levodopa (L-DOPA) are initially effective but the disease eventually progresses, highlighting the need for a treatment that restores and maintains the otherwise lost functions.
