1. Neurotoxic Effects of Nicotine During Neonatal Brain Development : Critical Period and Adult Susceptibility
Sammanfattning : This thesis examined neurotoxic effects of nicotine exposure during a defined critical period of neonatal brain development in mice.In our environment there are numerous hazardous contaminants that an individual can be exposed to during its entire lifetime. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The onset and the progression of chronic liver disease involve environmental and genetic factors. Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) are important players in these processes and are the main storage site for retinol. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Conformational diseases are characterized by protein misfolding and aggregation in the affected tissue. The aim of this thesis was to find genetic support for mechanisms in common for three prevalent ... LÄS MER
4. Susceptibility effects in MRI and 1H MRS. The spurious echo artifact and susceptibility measurements
Sammanfattning : When performing magnetic resonance (MR) experiments, a strong homogeneous magnetic field is often preferred, especially in clinical applications. However, all objects that are placed in the magnetic field will disturb the field homogeneity and cause local magnetic field gradients. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder and affects over 1% of people above the age of 65. This progressive and debilitating disease is usually thought of as a motor disease, with symptoms such as muscle rigidity, slowness of movement, and tremor at rest. LÄS MER
