    Sammanfattning : Persons are not just mechanical systems of instinctual animalistic proclivities, but also language-producing, existentially aware creatures, whose experiences and actions are drenched in subjective meaning. To understand a human being as a person is to understand him or her as a rational system that wants, fears, hopes, believes, and in other ways imbues the world with meaning, rather than just a mechanical system that is subject to the same chains of cause and effect as other animals.

  2. 2. Precision in neuropsychology. Four challenges when using simplified assumptions

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Jacob Stålhammar; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuropsychology; practice effects; mild cognitive impairment; dementia; second language effects; bilingualism;

    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. 3. Anatomical, neurochemical and behavioural consequences of immunotoxin lesions of the basal forebrain cholinergic system

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural transplantation; reinnervation; axon growth; functional sparing; memory; learning; cortex; hippocampus; immunolesion; acetylcholine; basal forebrain; rat; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    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. 4. Pharmacometric evaluation and improvement of models and study designs - applied in diabetes

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Moustafa M. A. Ibrahim; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    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.

  5. 5. Applied Adaptive Optimal Design and Novel Optimization Algorithms for Practical Use

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Eric Strömberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nonlinear Mixed Effects Models; Pharmacometrics; Fisher Information Matrix; Approximation; Optimality Criterion; Parallelization; Model Based Adaptive Optimal Design; Pharmaceutical Science; Farmaceutisk vetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The costs of developing new pharmaceuticals have increased dramatically during the past decades. Contributing to these increased expenses are the increasingly extensive and more complex clinical trials required to generate sufficient evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of the drugs.
