  1. 1. The subthalamic nucleus in health and disease

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : yu zhang; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder in the world. PD is caused by degeneration of the dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc). READ MORE

  2. 2. Feature Extraction and Classification of Medication-Induced Hyperkinesia During Treatment of Parkinson's Disease

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Erik Liljeroth; [2020]
    Keywords : Parkinson s disease; neural network; autoencoder; classification; feature extraction; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The recent progress in wearable sensor technology, signal processing and machine learning enables novel applications in fields such as automatic disease symptom tracking and classification. In this project, data from an ongoing Parkinson’s disease study at the Lund University Hospital is gathered and analyzed, and classification models of varying complexity for symptom severity are evaluated.

  3. 3. Conquering Chemical Space : Optimization of Docking Libraries through Interconnected Molecular Features

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Leonard Sparring; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Copied selected text to selection primary: The development of new pharmaceuticals is a long and ardous process that typically requires more than 10 years from target identification to approved drug. This process often relies on high throughput screening of molecular libraries. READ MORE

  4. 4. Low dimensional representations of neuronal activity in Parkinson’s disease

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

    Author : Gustav Röhss; Míriam Vall; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This project has been concerned with developing methods for dimensionality reduction and feature extraction of brain activity in the basal ganglia in parkinsonian brains. Dimensionality reduction of local field potential activity was based on feature vectors produced from the discrete Fourier transform of activity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Differences in Whisker Movement in Mouse Models of Parkinson's Disease & Healthy Mice

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

    Author : Hrafndís Brá Heimisdóttir; Jill Skärby; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Analysing differences in whisking movement between Parkinson’s Disease (PD) modeled mice and healthy control mice can help us to better understand active sensing and the sensorimotor system. In this thesis whisking data obtained from de Voogel’s (2020) master thesis was analysed with the goal to identify differences in whisking movement. READ MORE
