  1. 1. Sensory integration : success & failure

    Författare :Tamas Jantvik; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technology - Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Teknikvetenskap - Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik; Industriell elektronik; Industrial Electronics;

    Sammanfattning : The convergence of sensory signals plays an important role in perception. Two cases of convergence are examined in this thesis by means of modelling; the case when the converging signals are congruent, which leads to combination and an enhancement of perception, and the case when they are incongruent.

  2. 2. Flotation-REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique) in the age of anxiety : Exploring the role and treatment applications of sensory isolation in the modern world

    Författare :Kristoffer Jonsson; Anette Kjellgren; Torsten Passie; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Flotation-REST; Sensory isolation; Sensory deprivation; Anxiety; Generalized anxiety disorder; Complementary and alternative medicine; Flyt-REST; sinnes-isolation; sensorisk deprivation; generaliserat ångest syndrom; komplementär och alternativ medicin; Psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : Anxiety and the use of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), such as flotation-REST, have increased markedly during the last decades. Anxiety is reportedly a prevalent incentive for the use of CAMs, despite the present low state of knowledge about their safety and efficacy. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Pain, its assessment and treatment using sensory stimulation techniques : Methodological considerations

    Författare :Iréne Lund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Evaluation of pain; pain; pain rating; pain threshold; sensory stimulation;

    Sammanfattning : Pain is a worldwide clinical problem that causes great suffering for the individual and costs for society. The assessment and evaluation of perceived pain is necessary for diagnosis, choice of treatment, and for the evaluation of treatment efficacy. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Physiological properties of unmyelinated low-threshold tactile (CT) afferents in the human hairy skin

    Författare :Katarina Wiklund Fernström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Human; microneurography; mechanoafferent; unmyelinated; sensory; touch; temperature; capsaicin;

    Sammanfattning : For more than a decade it has been known that human skin is supplied with a system of slowly conducting unmyelinated afferents that respond strongly to innocuous skin deformation (Nordin, 1990; Vallbo et al., 1993). LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the present thesis was to investigate hormonal and physiological effects in mothers during a breastfeeding session and in dogs and their owners in response to short-term interaction. In study one, sixty-six mothers receiving either exogenous oxytocin infusion and/or epidural analgesia (EDA) during labor or intramuscular oxytocin injection post partum were studied. LÄS MER
