  • A MTW lunch seminar with Michael Schöll, now home from Berkeley

    Two harmful proteins that accumulate in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients are β-amyloid (Aβ) as amyloid plaques, and hyperphosphorylated forms of the microtubule-associated protein tau assembling into neurofibrillary tangles (NFT). Neuropathological studies have repeatedly demonstrated that these proteins also accumulate in the brains of cognitively healthy older people. Tau rather than Aβ pathology has been shown to be closely related to cognitive impairment, predominantly memory decline, in post…

    Master thesis presentation: Creatine Cest in Human Muscle by Esaú Poblador Rodríguez

    On Thursday, November 19th at 11.15 am. Esaú Poblador Rodríguez will be presenting his master thesis “Creatine Cest in Human Muscle”. The examiner is Fredrik Kahl. The presentation will take place in Lunnerummet (room 3311), Hörsalsvägen 11, 3rd floor at Chalmers. Abstract: Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) imaging is a relatively recent technique that allows the detection of endogenous and exogenous compounds (protons or molecules) with enhanced sensitivity. Its application…

    MedTech West seminar on Nov 23: An overview of the current and possible future applications of TMS by Magnus Thordstein

    Since the first report in 1985 of its practice in human subjects, the use of the technique Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for non-invasive, safe investigation of the nervous system has greatly expanded. Initially, TMS was used for exploration of the central parts of the motor system. Later, its practice has revealed various physiological and pathophysiological aspects of central nervous (CNS) functioning in humans. Not the least, it’s come to be…

    Lunch seminar with Simon Skau on Nov 30: Principles behind fNIRS and its applicability

    Functional Near-InfraRed Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is an in vivo functional neuroimaging technique. It takes advantage of the fact that human tissues are relatively transparent to light in the near infrared spectra, to detect hemodynamic changes within the cortex. Even though the fNIRS technique has been known for several decades we have in recent years seen major advances in terms of both temporal and spatial resolution and usability. fNIRS has several advantages…

    Visual Forum 2015

    We are on the brink of a visual revolution. Picture this, five years from now displays will be everywhere. There will be holograms and smart materials that provide us with visual presentations both in public and private environments, and Virtual realities allows us to create private environments when and where we wish. The smart textiles in our clothes will be able to change to reflect things about us as well…
