  1. 1. Insomnia and fear extinction : Review and analysis of the evolutionary emotional hypothesis

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Sofia Wachtmeister; [2021]
    Keywords : Sleep; insomnia; hyperarousal; fear conditioning; fear extinction; evolutionary-emotional hypothesis;

    Abstract : Insomnia is one of the most common health issues, with occasional symptoms affecting up to 50% of the general population. Lack of sleep is associated with many negative health effects. A new evolutionary hypothesis has been proposed to explain the mechanism behind insomnia symptoms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Applying automatic operant boxes for studies on behavioral flexibility in zebrafish

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Winberg: Beteendeneuroendokrinologi

    Author : Anna Åberg; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In neuroscience, zebrafish can be used as a model organism to study cognitive deficits and human physiology. Previous methods to study behavior in animal models have relied on manual observations, which can lack repeatability, until recently when automatic operant boxes have been developed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neural response of a Neuron population : A mathematical modelling approach

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Avdelningen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Henrik Podéus; [2021]
    Keywords : Neurovascular coupling; The brain; Mathematical modelling; Systems Biology; Neural communication;

    Abstract : The brain – the organ that allows us to be aware of our surroundings – consists of a complex network of neurons, which seemingly allows the human brain to be able of abstract thinking, emotions, and cognitive function. To learn how the brain is capable of this, the two main branches of neuroscience study either neurons in detail, or how they communicate within neuronal networks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Well-Being and Self-Compassion : A study on the relationship between well-being and self-compassion in a Cuban sample

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Petra Westberg; [2020]
    Keywords : Well-being; Self-compassion; Compassion; Hedonic well-being; Eudaimonic well-being; Cuba;

    Abstract : Well-being is a human goal globally and has been considered so since the early days of philosophical thought. As the science of well-being has grown the last decades, well-being has widely been agreed to consist of two core components: Hedonic well-being and Eudaimonic well-being. READ MORE

  5. 5. Body Ownership : An Activation Likelihood Estimation Meta-Analysis

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Martin Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Body ownership; fMRI; ALE meta-analysis; Region of interest; Multisensory integration;

    Abstract : How is it that we feel that we own our body? And how does the brain create this feeling? By manipulating the integration of multisensory signals, researchers have recently begun to probe this question. By creating the illusory experience of owning external body-parts and entire bodies, researchers have investigated the neurofunctional correlates of body ownership. READ MORE
