  1. 1. Neural Correlates of Parkinson’s Disease Motor Symptoms : A pipeline for exploration of correlation between neural and kinematic data

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

    Author : Evelyn Steinbrück; [2022]
    Keywords : Parkinson’s Disease; neural modulation; neurodegenerative disorders; DBS; DCS; closed-loop neural stimulation;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, within this categoryof diseases it is among the most prevalent worldwide. The etiology of PD isbased in progressive deterioration of neural tissue in the basal ganglia (neuronalnuclei located at the base of the cerebrum) and their related structures. READ MORE

  2. 2. One last time: A systematic review comparing gambling and opioid addiction in the brain

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Linnea Nyström; [2022]
    Keywords : opioids; gambling; decision-making; neural correlates;

    Abstract : Gambling disorder is today a common disorder causing lives to shatter. As this disorder activates the reward system and increases the need of dopamine, recovering from gamling disorder can be hard. Research has shown that gambling addiction appears to have similarities to substance abuse, but no substance has been named. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of a Novel Tubular Carbon Fibre Based Electrode for Dopamine Detection with Fast Scan Cyclic Voltammetry

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

    Author : Sofia Hansson; [2022]
    Keywords : FSCV; Carbon Fibre Microelectrodes; Electrode development; Dopamine; Parkinson’s disease; In-vitro; FSCV; Kolfibermikroelektroder; Elektrodutveckling; Dopamin; Parkinsons sjukdom; In-vitro;

    Abstract : Fast Scan Cyclic Voltammetry (FSCV) is an electrochemical technique, based on ramping a voltage through a microelectrode and measuring the resulting redox current to obtain information about an electroactive molecule. FSCV can be used for the detection of dopamine, which is a vital neurotransmitter. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fjäderplockning hos sällskapspapegojor : en enkätstudie med fokus på prevalens och användningen av psykofarmaka

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Linnéa Wester; [2022]
