  1. 1. Thermo-effector responses to a 5-day high-intensity cold-acclimation procedure

    University essay from KTH/Omgivningsfysiologi

    Author : Frederick Wilkins; [2020]
    Keywords : Hypothermia Acclimation procedure thermo effector response;

    Abstract : Long-term, repeated exposures to cold might lead to cold adaptation. The study examined, in a small homogeneous group of non-acclimatised men, the inter-individual response to a short-term, high-intensity cold acclimation regimen. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of cold treatment on Arabidopsis thaliana : a study in the change of gene expression levels in some selected COR-genes and composition of important cell membrane lipids of A. thaliana

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Artur Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Arabidopsis thaliana; cold stress; membrane lipids; gene expression; quantification; PCR; extraction;

    Abstract : The effect of cold stress in Arabidopsis thaliana, mouse cress, was examined. The object was to investigate how gene expression and membrane lipid configuration was affected in seedlings when being treated with low temperature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of repeated whole-body cold stress on finger temperature responses to localized cooling

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

    Author : Pit Gäng; [2020]
    Keywords : CIVD; whole-body cold acclimation; cutaneous blood flow; immersion; thermal perception;

    Abstract : The study aimed to assess whether a short-term, high-intensity cold acclimation protocol would modulate finger vasomotor [i.e., finger temperature (TF), cold induced vasodilation (CIVD)] responses and regional thermo-perception to localized cooling. READ MORE

  4. 4. Binary classification of HRV signals

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Rebecca Lütz; [2019]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Heart rate variability, commonly abbreviated as HRV, displays the variance between consecutive heartbeats. This variance occurs naturally but can change due to stress and problems with the cardiac system. HRV is therefore widely used for medical research. READ MORE

  5. 5. Green Roof Performance in Cold Climates : A study on how different plants suited for the subarctic climate in northernSweden affects the performances of green roofs

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Jonathan Hjelm; [2019]
    Keywords : Stormwater; Green roofs; Cold climate; Stormwater management;

    Abstract : Increased urbanization leads to an increasing amount of impervious surfaces and a decrease ofthe natural hydrological function. Urban stormwater does thus risk to create high surface flows which could damage the receiving water bodies (e.g. erosion) or the urban area itself (flooding). READ MORE
