EEG Analysis in Adults with Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity-Disorder. Resting state and behavioural data analysis
(The University of Bergen, 2015-05-31)
Introduction: Adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are examined by electroencephalography (EEG). EEG is a non-invasive method to measure brain activity indirectly, by measuring voltage changes on the ...
Lowering of tumor interstitial fluid pressure reduces tumor cell proliferation in a xenograft tumor model
High tumor interstitial fluid pressure (TIFP) is a characteristic of most solid tumors. TIFP may hamper adequate uptake of macromolecular therapeutics in tumor tissue. In addition, TIFP generates mechanical forces affecting ...
Enhanced gene expression from retroviral vectors
(BioMed Central, 2008-02-25)
Background: Retroviruses are widely used to transfer genes to mammalian cells efficiently and stably. However, genetic elements required for high-level gene expression are incompatible with standard systems. The retroviral ...
Integrating protein structural dynamics and evolutionary analysis with Bio3D
(BioMed Central, 2014-12-10)
Background: Popular bioinformatics approaches for studying protein functional dynamics include comparisons of crystallographic structures, molecular dynamics simulations and normal mode analysis. However, determining how ...
Tunneling nanotubes: Diversity in morphology and structure
(Taylor & Francis, 2014-02-06)
Tunneling nanotubes (TNTs) are recently discovered thin membranous tubes that interconnect cells. During the last decade, research has shown TNTs to be diverse in morphology and composition, varying between and within cell ...
Enhanced cognitive function and antidepressant-like effects after krill oil supplementation in rats
(BioMed Central, 2013-01-25)
Background: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of krill oil (KO) on cognition and depression-like behaviour in rats. Methods: Cognition was assessed using the Aversive Light Stimulus Avoidance Test ...
Assessment of Image Quality of a PET/CT scanner for a Standarized Image situation Using a NEMA Body Phantom. “The impact of Different Image Reconstruction Parameters on Image quality”
(The University of Bergen, 2013-09-01)
Radiologists and medical practitioners are working daily with images from integrated Positron Emission Tomography/ Computed Tomography (PET/CT) scanners in order to detect potentially lethal diseases. It is thus very ...
Investigation of tumour characteristics and treatment strategies in animal models using multiparametric MRI and novel contrast agents
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-21)
The apoptosis-inducing activity towards leukemia and lymphoma cells in a cyanobacterial culture collection is not associated with mouse bioassay toxicity
Cyanobacteria (83 strains and seven natural populations) were screened for content of apoptosis (cell death)-inducing activity towards neoplastic cells of the immune (jurkat acute T-cell lymphoma) and hematopoetic (acute ...
An eGFP expressing immunodeficent mouse model with dsRED transfected mammary tumours, and the effect of hyperbaric oxygen treatment
(The University of Bergen, 2009-11-20)
Previous studies have shown significant anti-tumour effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment on chemically induced mammary tumours. Thus, to answer whether HBO has a general anti-tumour effect on mammary tumours, the ...
