    Sammanfattning : Spinal neurons are important in several aspects motor control. For example, the neurons essential for locomotor movements reside in the ventral spinal cord. In this thesis, different motor control functions are being related to neuronal populations defined by their common expression of a gene. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Anxiety disorders are very common and the primary feature is abnormal or inappropriate anxiety. Fear and anxiety is often mediated by the amygdala, a brain structure rich in substance P (SP) and neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptors. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Since the first successful derivation of human embryonic stem cells (hESC), rapid progress has been attained in the development of strategies in differentiation of these cells into various neural lineages, with the fundamental objective of using these cells for replacement and repair of damaged neuronal circuits in the central nervous system (CNS). Of particular interest are midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons, which play a central role in regulation of voluntary movement. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Phosphoproteomics to tackle brain disorders : Insight into the murine brain phosphoproteome

    Författare :Valentina Siino; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Nyckelord :Phosphoproteomics; mass spectrometry; brain disorders; neurobiology; phosphorylation;

    Sammanfattning : Brain disorders affect the normal functionality of the brain causing inability in controlling certain behaviours. In the last two decades, despite the technological advancement, many biological questions concerning brain mechanisms and neural networks remain still unclear. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On dopamine neurons : nerve fiber outgrowth and L-DOPA effects

    Författare :Sara af Bjerkén; Ingrid Strömberg; Kathy Steece-Collier; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; nerve fiber outgrowth; astrocytes; ventral mesencephalon; GDNF; L-DOPA; L-DOPA induced dyskinesia; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Parkinson’s disease is a disorder mainly characterized by progressive degeneration of dopamine producing neurons in the substantia nigra of the midbrain. The most commonly used treatment strategy is to pharmacologically restore the lost function by the administration of the dopaminergic precursor L-DOPA. LÄS MER
