  1. 1. An Investigation of The Link Between Endocrine Disruption and Developmental Neurotoxicity Induced by Environmental Pollutants : In Zebrafish Embryos

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för cell- och molekylärbiologi; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Maria Revenikioti; [2023]
    Keywords : Endocrine-disrupting chemical EDC ; Environmental pollutants; Endocrine disruption ED ; Developmental neurotoxicity DNT ; Development; Zebrafish embryos; Estradiol; DHT; BPF; PFOS.;

    Abstract : Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are known to cause endocrine disruption (ED), developmental neurotoxicity (DNT), infertility and impaired embryo development. EDCs do therefore impose a threat to humans, wildlife and the environment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring the perspectives of current and future sibling caregivers to a person with a neurodevelopmental disorder – implications for occupational therapy. A scoping review.

    University essay from Jönköping University

    Author : Kayleigh Tudor; [2023]
    Keywords : Adults; Brothers; Intellectual Disability; Learning Disability; Occupational Therapy; Sisters;

    Abstract : Introduction: Numerous studies have examined caregiver burden and stress, yet few represent the perspective from the sibling caregiver of a person with a neurodevelopmental disorder within the context of occupational therapy practice. Therefore, this scoping review provides a review of current evidence. READ MORE

  3. 3. Actin filaments as an indicator of impaired neuronal differentiation mediated by disruption of the retinoic acid signalling pathway

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Hanin Salloum; [2022]
    Keywords : Retinoic acid; actin; cytoskeleton; neural progenitor C17.2 cells; neuron; Coronin 1C; Cdc42 Cdc42 effector protein 4 gene ; Fn1 Fibronectin ; Wnt pathway.;

    Abstract : Retinoic acid (RA) is a well-known neurodevelopmental signaling molecule. It is reported to induce effects on neurite formation in differentiating neurons and to interfere with the actin cytoskeleton. Therefore, this project aimed to investigate the mechanisms behind effects of RA on the actin cytoskeleton of developing neurons using the C17. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sex Differences in Adolescent Depression

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Emma Hammarsten Yder; [2018]
    Keywords : sex differences; adolescent depression; female adolescent depression; neurodevelopmental changes; sex differences in brain maturation; 2:1 ratio;

    Abstract : At the age of 13, the 2:1 ratio becomes evident. It entails the fact that after puberty, twice as many females as compared to males suffer from depressive episodes. Much research has been conducted to highlight key contributing factors that aid in the onset and the timing of the 2:1 ratio. READ MORE
