    Sammanfattning : Glucose and oxygen supply to the brain is critical for its proper function and when it is restricted as during a stroke, neurons and glial cells quickly become necrotic leading to structural damage as well as functional impairment and even death. To date there are few effective therapies that inhibit the neurodegenerative process and improves the outcome for the affected individual. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Introduction. Abnormalities in brain cannabinoid subtype-1 (CB1) receptor concentrations and/or signaling pathways may be involved in a variety of psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. There is a strong need to image and quantify brain CB1 receptor concentrations in living humans under baseline and diseased conditions. LÄS MER
