Breathing Dynamics for Non-speech and Speech Tasks Following Intensive Voice and Speech Treatment in Children with Motor Speech Disorders Secondary to Cerebral PalsyDownload
Introduction. Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most frequently occurring cause of movement disorders in children. It has a prevalence of 2-2.5 cases per 1000 live births and is a chronic condition, requiring lifelong rehabilitation. The ability to communicate is a primary factor in positive...
The hippocampus is a brain structure responsible for memory, learning, and the stress response; it is also used as a model for major depressive disorder (MDD) in preclinical studies. Preclinical models have shown that the hippocampal subfields are differentially affected by chronic stress....
Inhibitory feedback from sensory pathways is important for controlling movement. In this thesis we characterize a long-latency inhibitory spinal pathway to ankle flexors that is activated by low-threshold, homonymous afferents. In non-injured participants, this pathway was activated by both...
Physical training can affect the excitability of spinal reflexes in a training-specific manner in uninjured humans. Therefore, the first part of this thesis examined the changes in the excitability of a polysynaptic and a monosynaptic reflex in an ankle plantarflexor, after contrasting forms of...
Sex Differences in Central Nervous System Plasticity and Pain in Experimental Autoimmune EncephalomyelitisDownload
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative autoimmune disease with many known structural and functional changes in the central nervous system (CNS). A well-recognized, but poorly understood, complication of MS is chronic pain. Little is known regarding the influence of sex on the development...
Algorithms are increasingly present in our lives and responsible for many aspects of society – but are hidden from inspection. As codified instructions they require design (unless simplistic) and this design emerges from a web of social factors. Web sites and video games contain decision-making...
