  1. 1. Promote neuroprotection and axonal outgrowth in the central and peripheral neural system

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk cellbiologi

    Author : Elin Petersson; [2021]
    Keywords : Spinal cord injury; interleukin-1 receptor antagonist; excitotoxicity; qPCR; dorsal root ganglion.;

    Abstract : Acute spinal cord injury is often caused by collisions with motor vehicles, falls or violence. This injury could potentially lead to paraplegia or tetraplegia, causing great economic and personal loss. The patophysiology is biphasic, with primary and secondary mechanisms. READ MORE

  2. 2. An investigation of the relationships between electrotactile stimulus parameters, primary afferent response, and perceived sensation

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

    Author : Jessica Sofie Louise Vidmark; [2018]
    Keywords : electrotactile stimulation; psychophysical sensation; primary afferent response; sensory feedback; prosthetics; elektrisk hudstimulering; psykofysisk respons; primärafferent respons; sensorisk återkoppling; proteser;

    Abstract : Sensory feedback possesses the possibility of adding a new dimension to many applications, including, but not limited to, prosthetics and surgical robots for improved control, virtual reality for incorporation of another sense, and phantom limb pain reduction for amputees. Electrotactile stimulation provides a compact, light-weight, energy efficient, highly responsive, and non-invasive option for sensory feedback; however, it has been found to commonly elicit unnatural or uncomfortable sensations for the user.

  3. 3. Development and application of a multidomaindynamic model for direct steamgeneration solar power plant

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Anthony Rousset; [2017]
    Keywords : Concentrated Solar Power CSP ; Direct Steam Generation DSG ; dynamic modelling; co-simulation; thermal-hydraulic calculation; two-phase flow; Ledinegg instabilities; control-command; regulation; PID controller.; Koncentrerad solenergi CSP ; Direkt ånggenerering DSG ; dynamisk modellering; co-simulering; termisk hydraulisk beräkning; tvåfasflöde; Ledinegg instabiliteter; kontrollkommando; reglering; PID-kontroller..;

    Abstract : Nowadays, one of the solutions considered in order to face the issue of global warming and to move towards a carbon neutral society relies on the use of solar energy as a renewable and bountiful primary source. And, if photovoltaic technologies account for a large part in the solar energy market, recent years have witnessed the growth of non-concentrated and concentrated solar thermal technologies.

  4. 4. CO2 absorption in power plants : Emphasizing on CO2 absorption in biphasic solvent

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för bygg- energi- och miljöteknik

    Author : Athina Kouneli; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Carbon dioxide, the famous and vital to life gas, is also an important greenhouse gas. Since the combustion of fuels leads to the production of carbon dioxide it had to be expected that since the industrial revolution the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was to be rapidly increased.

  5. 5. Novel Insulin Delivery Profiles for Mixed Meals in Basal-Bolus and Closed-Loop Artificial Pancreas Therapy for Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Asavari Srinivasan; [2013]
    Keywords : type 1 diabetes; insulin pump therapy; insulin dosage; artificial pancreas; particle swarm optimization; biomedical control; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Traditional basal-bolus and closed-loop artificial pancreas therapy for type 1 diabetes mellitus were studied in the present work and novel insulin delivery profiles have been identified. Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition resulting from autoimmune destruction of the pancreatic insulin producing β-cells. READ MORE
