    Sammanfattning : Identification of modifiable risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is crucial in order to diminish suffering from this devastating disease. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if different aspects of glucose metabolism, insulin, fatty-acid composition or other vascular risk factors predict the future development of AD and dementia.

    Sammanfattning : An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is one of the most common injuries to the knee joint. It is also one of the most researched areas within sports medicine, orthopedics and physical therapy. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cognitive training in young and old adults Transfer, long-term effects, and predictors of gain

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Petra Sandberg; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Cognitive training; aging; old adults; executive function; life-span; individual differences; episodic memory; inhibition; shifting; updating; cognitive control; strategy training; mnemonics; predictors; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Aging, also in the absence of pathological conditions, is associated with cognitivedecline, especially in so called fluid abilities, such as episodic memory andexecutive functions. Due to an ongoing demographic shift, a larger part of thepopulation will reach higher ages, and more people will be affected by age-relatedcognitive decline. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Long-term treatment response, predictors and biochemical markers in Alzheimer’s disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Åsa Wallin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; treatment response; cholinesterase inhibitor; CSF-biomarkers; pre-treatment progression; predictors; Alzheimer’s disease;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is clinically characterised by an insidious onset with progressive symptoms of memory impairment, dysphasia, dyspraxia, dygnosia and visuospatial difficulties. Degeneration of neurons in specific regions of the brain, formation of senile plaques and neurofibrillary changes are some of the neuropathological features of the disease. LÄS MER
