    Sammanfattning : Rolandic epilepsy (RE) is the most common focal epilepsy syndrome in the pediatric age group with an onset between 3 and 13 years. The syndrome is defined by electro-clinically typical features and has been considered benign according to seizure remission before the age of 16 years. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Neurologi; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurology; coronary artery bypass surgery; S100B; neuropsychological function; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Despite considerable research efforts, the incidence and mechanisms of diffuse cognitive impairment after coronary artery bypass surgery are not fully understood. The aim of the dissertation was to describe cognitive changes after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and the predictors and consequences thereof. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Childhood malignant disease and consequences for growth hormone secretion, intellectual function and cardiovascular risk

    Författare :Katarina Link; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone deficiency; Insulin sensitivity; Cranial radiotherapy; Neuropsychological performance; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia; diabetologi; sekretion; Endokrinologi;

    Sammanfattning : In childhood onset growth hormone deficiency (GHD) a reduction in cardiac left ventricular mass (LVMi) and impairment of cardiac systolic function, as well as in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) has been shown. In study I, we showed that a low dose of GH treatment for 10 months resulted in increased LVMi and kidney size. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Neuropsychological Function in Relation to Structural and Functional Brain Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease

    Författare :Eva Elgh; Jarl Risberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer´s disease; neuropsychological function; episodic memory; hippocampus; prefrontal cortex; brain imaging; MRI; fMRI; SPECT; LHPA-axis; cortisol; geriatrik; Geriatrics;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this doctoral thesis was to study neuropsychological function in relation to structural and functional brain changes in Alzheimer´s disease (AD). In the first study relations between hippocampal volume, neuropsychological function and limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (LHPA) axis disturbances in AD were investigated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

  5. 5. Neuropsychological outcomes and health-related quality of life of children operated for nonsyndromic craniosynostosis

    Författare :Marizela Kljajic; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nonsyndromic craniosynostosis; neuropsychological functioning; adaptive behavior skills; health-related quality of life;

    Sammanfattning : The primary aim of this thesis was to assess the intelligence quotient, attention function, adaptive behavior skills, and health-related quality of life of children operated for nonsyndromic craniosynostosis. The secondary aim was to evaluate whether surgical methods for treating sagittal synostosis were related to the outcomes. LÄS MER
