  1. 1. Nervous System Informed Facilitation for Strategic Sustainable Development: Integrating Polyvagal Theory in the ABCD-Process

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för strategisk hållbar utveckling

    Author : Jonas Baumgart; Cora Niemeier; Felix Bruns; [2022]
    Keywords : Sustainability; Polyvagal Theory; FSSD; Facilitation; Multi-Stakeholder Process; Nervous System;

    Abstract : The activities of modern society create an unsustainable trajectory for life on planetearth. The issues related to that, as summed up in the sustainability challenge, are interdependentand complex, thus effective solutions must be systemic and involve diverse stakeholders. READ MORE

  2. 2. Peripheral Nervous Network Simulator : A Computer Networks approach

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM)

    Author : Baha Eddine Hmidi; [2022]
    Keywords : peripheral nervous system; nerve damage; signal blockage; node; graph; network emulator;

    Abstract : The peripheral nervous system can be seen as a huge network of neurons that prop-agates signals across the human body. In fact, as seen in [1] , "All the information streaming in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) is transmitted along axons byelectro-chemical signals called action potentials". READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a Closed-loop for Measuring and Stimulating Peripheral Nervous System

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

    Author : Diego Ignacio Roy Hierro; [2022]
    Keywords : Control; Close-loop; PNI; VNS; HRV; Stimulation Protocol; Kontroll; Close-loop; PNI; VNS; HRV; Stimuleringsprotokoll.;

    Abstract : Bioelectronic medicine is an emerging discipline being a intersection of neu- roscience, immunology and electrical engineering. Chronic inflammation is linked to disorders such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, atheroscle- rosis, obesity and inflammatory bowel disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modulation of a model ligand-gated ion channel by amphetamine derivatives

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Strukturbiologi

    Author : Emelia Karlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; sTeLIC; electrophysiology; psychostimulants; amphetamine derivatives;

    Abstract : Pentameric ligand-gated ion channels are critical mediators of electrochemical signal transduction in neurons and other excitable cells, causing them to be important targets of psychoactive drugs. Structural data for these complex proteins are limited, particularly among eukaryotic family members and for the functionally critical open state. READ MORE

  5. 5. Why should 3D Gait Analysis be included in the Walking Pattern Assessment of individuals with Spinal Cord Injury? : Biomechanical analysis of gait and gait patterns in individuals with spinal cord injury

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

    Author : Chiara Pollicini; [2022]
    Keywords : Spinal cord injury; 3D gait analysis; gait features; GDI; GPS; Clinical assessments; ASIA scale;

    Abstract : Background: The yearly incidence of people with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is between250,000 and 500,000, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The injury often reduces the ability to walk. Various consequences affect the nervous system and, thus, the entire body. READ MORE
