  1. 1. Planning Primates - A search for episodic foresight

    Författare :Mathias Osvath; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; language evolution; planning; the Bischof-Köhler hypothesis; comparative episodic foresight; episodic system; autonoetic consciousness; orangutans; chimpanzees;

    Sammanfattning : The ability to plan for future, not currently experienced, mental or physiological states has been regarded as unique to humans. When humans plan for such states it has been hypothesized that they make use of what has been known as episodic foresight. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Development and Applications of in vitro Models to Study Human Brain Evolution and Disease

    Författare :Daniela Grassi; Molekylär neurogenetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neural reprogramming; Neural differentiation; Brain development; Huntington s disease; Induced Neuron; Neural Progenitor Cell; Brain evolution;

    Sammanfattning : Neuroscience focusing on human development and disease has long been hampered due to ethical reasons, low tissue availability, and low translatability from animal models. To circumvent these obstacles, we have developed two methods for the investigation of human neural cells in culture. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Analysis of Nucleotide Variations in Non-human Primates

    Författare :Ann-Charlotte Rönn; Ann-Christine Syvänen; Mats Nilsson; Phillip Morin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Molecular genetics; SNP; genotyping; primate; chimpanzee; whole genome amplification; multiple displacement amplification; minisequencing; microarray; Y-chromosome; mitochondria; Genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Many of our closest relatives, the primates, are endangered and could be extinct in a near future. To increase the knowledge of non-human primate genomes, and at the same time acquire information on our own genomic evolution, studies using high-throughput technologies are applied, which raises the demand for large amounts of high quality DNA.

  4. 4. Genomic Variation and Evolution of HERV-H and other Endogenous Retroviruses (ERVs)

    Författare :Patric Jern; Jonas Blomberg; Michael Tristem; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; Endogenous Retrovirus ERV ; HERV-H; Phylogeny; Evolution; Sequence Variation; Polymorphism; Recent Integrations; Horizontal Transfer; Master Elements; Taxonomy; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases; Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar;

    Sammanfattning : An exogenous retrovirus (XRV) that integrates into a germ cell may be inherited as a Mendelian gene; it becomes an endogenous retrovirus (ERV). The human genome consists of up to 8% HERVs. The gammaretroviral (ERV class I) HERV-H, with 926 members, is the largest ERV group. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Memory for Problem Solving: Comparative Studies in Attention, Working and Long-term Memory

    Författare :Katarzyna Bobrowicz; LUCS grupp för kognitiv zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; memory; flexibility; comparative cognition; transfer; problem solving; attention;

    Sammanfattning : Living in a complex and dynamically changing environment requires accurate and timely behavioural responses that allow for adapting to such changes. Well-developed perceptual systems provide a continuous flow of abundant and up-to-date information on the changes in the environment, and, thereby, allow for tailoring behavioural responses accordingly.
