  1. 1. Modulation of a model ligand-gated ion channel by amphetamine derivatives

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Strukturbiologi

    Author : Emelia Karlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; sTeLIC; electrophysiology; psychostimulants; amphetamine derivatives;

    Abstract : Pentameric ligand-gated ion channels are critical mediators of electrochemical signal transduction in neurons and other excitable cells, causing them to be important targets of psychoactive drugs. Structural data for these complex proteins are limited, particularly among eukaryotic family members and for the functionally critical open state. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of Alcohol Modulation of a Pentameric Ligand-gated Ion Channel with Electrophysiology and Molecular Dynamics Simulations

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad fysik

    Author : Sabina Gutheim; [2021]
    Keywords : Biophysics; Electrophysiology; MD simulations; Ligand-gated ion channels; GLIC; Ethanol modulation; Biofysik; Elektrofysiologi; MDsimuleringar; Pentameriska ligandstyrda jonkanaler; GLIC; Etanolmodulering;

    Abstract : Pentameric ligand-gated ion channels (pLGICs) are membrane receptors that play a crucial role in every living organism. The pLGIC protein structure forms a pore through the membrane of a cell that can let specific ions pass through, upon activation by endogenous agonists. READ MORE

  3. 3. Whole-Cell Patch Clamp Investigations on Rapid Synaptic Scaling of Mouse CA1 Pyramidal Neurons under Optogenetic Stimulation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Leonard Groth; [2021]
    Keywords : Patch clamp; Electrophysiology; Optogenetics; Epilepsy; Voltage clamp; Current clamp; Neuroscience; Applied Biochemistry; Tillämpad biokemi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The brain consists of billions of neurons forming intricate contiguous networks. The connective strength in these networks change throughout life in response to experience and environmental stimuli. READ MORE

  4. 4. To see or not to see the error of one´s ways : Consciousness and the Error-Related Negativity

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Noah Kaufman; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The error-related negativity (ERN) is a widely-used electrophysiological measure of error processing in the brain. Whether the ERN supports conscious awareness of erring has yet to be determined. READ MORE

  5. 5. Threatening Measures, at Face Value : Electrophysiology Indicating Confounds of the Facial Width-to-Height Ratio

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Carl Lindersson; [2019]
    Keywords : threat perception; evolutionary cues; fWHR; LPP; overgeneralisation hypothesis;

    Abstract : Previous studies support that the relative width of the upper face (facial width-to-height ratio; fWHR) has evolved to signal threat, but these studies rely greatly on subjective facial ratings and measurements prone to confounds. The present study objectively quantifies threat perception to the magnitude of the observers’ electrophysiological reaction, specifically the event-related potential (ERP) called the late positive potential (LPP), and investigate if brow height and jaw width could have confounded previous fWHR studies.
