  1. 1. Aspects of Frontal and Medial Temporal Brain Functions. Neuropsychological and functional imaging studies in normals and in frontotemporal dementia

    Författare :Christina Elfgren; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; neurophysiology; regional cerebral blood flow; Neuropsychological assessment; frontotemporal dementia; normal subjects; frontal lobes; Neurologi; medial temporal lobes; neuropsychology; Neurology; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis is based on five investigations. In the first study the nature and the degree of cognitive impairment of patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is explored. The results from neuropsychological assessment are described as three levels of cognitive impairment. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Posture and brain function in dementia. A study with special reference to orthostatic hypotension

    Författare :Ulla Passant; Sektion IV; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; falls and fractures.; white matter disease; hypoperfusion; frontal lobes; regional cerebral blood flow; blood pressure; orthostatic hypotension; Organic dementia; normal subjects; Psychiatry; clinical psychology; psychosomatics; Psykiatri; klinisk psykologi; psykosomatik;

    Sammanfattning : Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is believed to be an important cause of cerebral hypoperfusion, leading to chronic fatigue, blurred vision, unsteadiness, dizziness and sometimes syncope. It may also result in episodes of confusion, falls and fractures. The coupling between OH and organic dementia is not clear. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Mind your Language, All Right? Performance-dependent neural patterns of language

    Författare :Helene van Ettinger-Veenstra; Maria Engström; Peter Lundberg; Thomas Karlsson; Anita McAllister; Karsten Specht; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Language ability; performance; fMRI; functional magnetic resonance imaging; Broca; Wernicke; temporal lobe; inferior frontal gyrus; reading; fluency; lateralization; lateralisation; right hemisphere; performance-dependent; neural activation;

    Sammanfattning : The main aim of this dissertation was to investigate the difference in neural language patternsrelated to language ability in healthy adults. The focus lies on unraveling the contributions of theright‐hemispheric homologues to Broca’s area in the inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) and Wernicke’s areain the posterior temporal and inferior parietal lobes.

  4. 4. Cerebral Blood Flow and Cognition. Clinical studies on Dementia and Cognitive Decline

    Författare :Arkadiusz Siennicki-Lantz; Geriatrik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gerontology; Gerontologi; vascular risk factors; carotid ultrasound; peripheral arterial disease; orthostatic hypotension; blood pressure; ageing; SPECT; cerebral blood flow; cognition; Dementia; Alzheimer’s disease;

    Sammanfattning : The importance of early detection of brain changes during ageing has been recognised. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a method used for estimation of cerebral blood flow (CBF) in clinical work and in research. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The morphology and evolutionary significance of the anomalocaridids

    Författare :Allison C. Daley; Graham E. Budd; Nigel C. Hughes; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anomalocaridids; Cambrian; Burgess Shale; exceptional preservation; palaeontology; Historical geology and palaeontology; Historisk geologi och paleontologi; Historical Geology and Paleontology; Historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Sammanfattning : Approximately 600 to 500 million years ago, a major evolutionary radiation called the “Cambrian Explosion” gave rise to nearly all of the major animal phyla known today. This radiation is recorded by various fossil lagerstätten, such as the Burgess Shale in Canada, where soft-bodied animals are preserved in exquisite detail. LÄS MER
