  1. 1. Effects of Orexins, Guanylins and Feeding on Duodenal Bicarbonate Secretion and Enterocyte Intracellular Signaling

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Magnus Wilhelm Bengtsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :Physiology; alkaline secretion; carbohydrates; central nervous system; cholinergic stimulation; duodenum; enteric nervous system; enterochromaffin cell; fasting; feeding; glucose; guanylyl cyclase C; humans; hypocretin; intra-arterial; in situ; intracerebroventricular; luminal acid; luzindole; orexin-B; SB-334867; Fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The duodenal epithelium secretes bicarbonate ions and this is regarded as the primary defence mechanism against the acid discharged from the stomach. For an efficient protection, the duodenum must also function as a sensory organ identifying luminal factors. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Modeling disturbances of cholinergic systems : Possible relevance for schizophrenia

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Författare :Anna Mattsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cholinergic; nucleus basalis; 192 IgG-saporin; schizophrenia; locomotor activity; dopamine; microdialysis; memory; MRI;

    Sammanfattning : Schizophrenia is a severe, chronic mental disorder. The etiology remains unknown but alterations in cholinergic neurotransmission is one, among other, disturbances in the brain that have been implicated in schizophrenia. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Nerve Injury Induced Pain and Spinal Cord Stimulation

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Författare :Camilla Ultenius; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuropathic pain;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic neuropathic pain caused by injury to or disease in the nervous system is relatively common and results in major suffering, poor quality of life and incapacity. Such pain is a therapeutic challenge because a considerable portion of the patients fails to benefit from pharmacotherapy. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Secretory and anti-inflammatory actions of some gastro-intestinal hormones in salivary glands

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Författare :Hülya Çevik Aras; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; salivary glands; protein secretion; synthesis; inflammation; β-defensins; myeloperoxidase; cholecystokinin; gastrin; melatonin; nitric oxide; nerve stimulation;

    Sammanfattning : Textbooks generally state that the secretory activity of salivary glands is solely regulated by nerves. This view is challenged in the present Thesis, using the parotid gland of the anaesthetized rat as experimental in vivo model. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Drug-enhanced spinal cord stimulation for neuropathic pain : Studies on neurochemical mechanisms and clinical applications

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Författare :Gastón Schechtmann; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acetylcholine; baclofen; cholinergic analgesia; clonidine; gabapentin; neuropathic pain; nerve injury; pregabalin; spinal cord stimulation; intrathecal drug;

    Sammanfattning : Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an effective surgical treatment for neuropathic pain refractory to pharmacological therapy. For many patients suffering from this type of chronic pain, SCS is in fact the ultimate treatment option. LÄS MER
