    Abstract : Kaffe är en av de dryckerna som konsumeras mest av människor dagligen. Kaffe innehåller koffein som ursprungligen kommer från löv, frön och olika frukter. Den här studien har utgått från olika metoder för att se hur koffein påverkar kroppen. READ MORE

  2. 2. Study of brain imaging correlates of Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease with machine learning

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Canal Garcia Anna; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Accurate diagnosis in the early stages is an important challenge for the prevention and effective treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). This work proposes a method of analysis of the correlation of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) subtypes and its progression to AD using neuroimages such as structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

  3. 3. Fluorescent fusion proteins as probes to characterize tau fibril polymorphism

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Kemi

    Author : Max Lindberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease AD ; amyloids; FRET; tau; MAPT; fibrillation kinetics; seeding; fusion protein; EGFP; ECFP; EYFP; ThT; X-34; BTD14;

    Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a large and growing problem and while we today lack a full understanding of this disease, we know that the protein tau and the amyloid fibrils it forms play a central role in its development. We also know that these fibrils can have different morphologies in different diseases and that fibrils produced in vitro not necessarily adopt any of the morphologies found in patients. READ MORE
