  1. 1. Neural Correlates of Parkinson’s Disease Motor Symptoms : A pipeline for exploration of correlation between neural and kinematic data

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Evelyn Steinbrück; [2022]
    Keywords : Parkinson’s Disease; neural modulation; neurodegenerative disorders; DBS; DCS; closed-loop neural stimulation;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, within this categoryof diseases it is among the most prevalent worldwide. The etiology of PD isbased in progressive deterioration of neural tissue in the basal ganglia (neuronalnuclei located at the base of the cerebrum) and their related structures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Delusions of body ownership : A systematic review of somatoparaphrenia

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Robin Johansson; [2022]
    Keywords : Somatoparaphrenia; mri; ct; ownership;

    Abstract : Somatoparaphrenia (SP) is a disorder where patients deny ownership of their limb and display delusional ideas regarding it. In a review by Vallar and Ronchi (2009), they systematically reviewed the SP literature, and made several conclusions regarding the neural correlates of SP. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dopamine Waves Lead to a Swift and Adaptive Reinforcement Learning Algorithm

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

    Author : Gergö Gömöri; [2021]
    Keywords : Reinforcement Learning; Dopamine; Basal Ganglia; Successor Representation; förstärkningsinlärning; dopamin; basala ganglierna; successionsrepresentation;

    Abstract : Accumulating evidence suggests that dopaminergic neurons show significant task-related diversity. Curiously, dopamine concentration and dopamine axon activity show spatio-temporal wave patterns in the dorsal striatum. READ MORE

  4. 4. The positive effect of exercise on mood, as a non-motor symptom, in Parkinson's disease

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för organismbiologi; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Marina Sammils Baleiro; [2021]
    Keywords : parkinson s disease; parkinson s; mood; depression; anxiety; apathy; exercise;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s Disease is a degenerative neurological disease where dopaminergic neurons in the basal ganglia degenerate and die. This leads to dopamine deficiency in the basal ganglia, affecting both motor and non-motor systems, giving both motor and non-motor symptoms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impact of using different brain layer amounts on the accuracy of Convolutional Neural networks trained on MR-Images to identify Parkinson's Disease

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

    Author : Benjamin Ronneling; Marcus Dypbukt Källman; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease and brain disorder which affects the motor system and leads to shaking, stiffness, impaired balance and coordination. Diagnosing PD from Magnetic resonance images (MR-images) is difficult and often not possible for medical experts and therefore Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are used instead. READ MORE
