1. Null Ellipsometry and Protein Adsorption to Model Biomaterials
Sammanfattning : When implants are inserted into the human body cascades of events become started that will determine the outcome of wound healing and ultimately the success of the implantation. The events start with the adsorption of small molecules, and proteins that may be activated (enzymes) or are able to activate cells of the immune defense and the healing process. LÄS MER
2. Precision in neuropsychology. Four challenges when using simplified assumptions
Sammanfattning : Cognition comprises all thought processes, from perception to memory. Neuropsychological tests are the gold standard (= best way) to measure cognition. However, clinical assessment may at times have to rely on simplified assumptions. LÄS MER
3. Anatomical, neurochemical and behavioural consequences of immunotoxin lesions of the basal forebrain cholinergic system
Sammanfattning : The cholinergic hypothesis of geriatric memory dysfunction suggests that the learning and memory deficits representing the cardinal symptoms of dementia in the aged and in patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease may be attributable to a decline in the function of the cholinergic projection systems of the basal forebrain. Although many studies have addressed the issue of a causal relationship between cholinergic hypofunction and cognitive disturbance, analyses of the functional role of the basal forebrain cholinergic neuronal systems in the brain have so far been hampered by the lack of an efficient and specific cholinergic neurotoxin.

4. Age and Constraints on Language Learning : First Language Retention and Second Language Acquisition in International Adoptees
Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the influence of age of acquisition on the long-term second language development of international adoptees. Because age of acquisition typically coincides with the onset of bilingualism, the study of maturational age effects in second language acquisition has been empirically and conceptually entangled with changes in language input and use.

5. Pharmacometric evaluation and improvement of models and study designs - applied in diabetes
Sammanfattning : Pharmacometric models are increasingly used to improve the efficiency of the drug development process and increase our understanding of the studied underlying pathophysiological system. These models require assumptions for handling different types of data and the different model components, and the appropriateness of such assumptions must be carefully inspected for unbiased conclusions.
