  1. 1. Attractor Neural Network modelling of the Lifespan Retrieval Curve

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

    Author : Patrícia Pereira; [2020]
    Keywords : reminiscence bump; attractor neural network; Bayesian Confidence Propagation Neural Network BCPNN ; recency; synaptic plasticity; episodic memory; ”reminiscence bump”; attraktorneuronnät; Bayesian Confidence Propagation Neural Network BCPNN ; nysseffekt; synaptisk plasticitet; episodiskt mine.;

    Abstract : Human capability to recall episodic memories depends on how much time has passed since the memory was encoded. This dependency is described by a memory retrieval curve that reflects an interesting phenomenon referred to as a reminiscence bump - a tendency for older people to recall more memories formed during their young adulthood than in other periods of life.

  2. 2. HIGH-FREQUENCY OSCILLATIONS IN A MOUSE MODEL OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

    Author : Love Zachrisson; [2020]
    Keywords : 6-OHDA; Parkinson s Disease; Basal Ganglia; LID; Gamma oscillation; 80Hz; HFO; Multichannel electrode array; Parkinsons sjukdom; 6-OHDA; LID; HFO; Gamma oscillering; 80Hz; Basala Ganglierna; Elektrodimplantat;

    Abstract : Dopamine replacement therapy is the main method of treating Parkinson’s Disease (PD), however over time this treatment causes increasingly abnormal, involuntary movements. This symptom, known as Levodopa-Induced-Dyskinesia (LID) is associated with aberrant, high frequency oscillations (HFOs) in the motor cortex and basal ganglia, as demonstrated with implanted electrodes in human Parkinson’s patients as well as in a rat model of Parkinson’s Disease.

  3. 3. THE NEURODEGENERATION PROCESS IN THE STRIATUM OF MICE EXPOSED TO OBESOGENIC DIETS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Ankita Talukdar; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Obesity and diabetes are known to impact brain function and alter metabolism. Studies in rodents show that consumption of high fat and high sugar diets lead to brain dysfunction affecting memory and cognition, and increases risk of cerebro-vascular and neurodegenerative disorders.

  4. 4. Binge Eating Disorder : Neural correlates and treatments

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Malin Brundin; [2019]
    Keywords : binge eating disorder; impulsivity; reward systems; dopamine; neuromodulation;

    Abstract : Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most prevalent of all eating disorders and is characterized by recurrent episodes of eating a large amount of food in the absence of control. There have been various kinds of research of BED, but the phenomenon remains poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Neural Mechanisms of Reward and Addiction : A Review of the Role of Dopamine in Cocaine Addiction

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Hanna Nilsson; [2018]
    Keywords : neural communication; dopamine; reward; addiction; cocaine;

    Abstract : Cocaine is known for its severe addictive properties and still, there is no effective treatment for cocaine addiction. Cocaine is a powerful chemical substance. It enters the brain rapidly and cause abnormal high levels of dopamine. Dopamine is found to be the neural correlate for reward. READ MORE
