  1. 1. Att förebygga stressrelaterad psykisk ohälsa med yoga : En systematisk litteraturstudie om yoga och stresshormonet kortisol

    Kandidat-uppsats, Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för kemi och biomedicin (KOB)

    Författare :Annica Nielsen; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Yoga; stress; mental illness; cortisol; HPA-axis; Yoga; stress; psykisk ohälsa; kortisol; HPA-axeln;

    Sammanfattning : Bakgrund: Stress samt stressrelaterad psykisk ohälsa ökar i samhället och det är viktigt att finna alternativ som bromsar utvecklingen. Stress är ett normalt fysiologiskt tillstånd men under längre tid utan återhämtning kan stress leda till psykisk ohälsa. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects on the Hippocampal Volume and Function : Stress and Depression Versus Physical Exercise

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Författare :Emelie Olson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :hippocampus; hippocampal volume; hippocampal function; memory; stress; depression; physical exercise;

    Sammanfattning : In this essay, changes in the human hippocampal volume and function induced by stress, depression and physical exercise are examined. Hippocampus is crucially involved in the acquisition and retrieval of episodic and spatial memory, and hippocampal volume correlates with episodic and spatial memory performance. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Neurobiology of opioid addiction

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Författare :Ludvig Rudén; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Opioids; reinforcement; mu opioid receptor; addiction; allostasis; cAMP; Opioider; belöning; mu opioid receptor; beroende; allostas; cAMP;

    Sammanfattning : Since the use of opioids started to emerge for analgesic reasons in the 19th century with the synthetization of morphine, opioids have been studied rigorously to better understand its effects on the brain. This thesis shows that both the analgesic effects and the reinforcing effects of opioids are mediated by the same receptor, the mu opioid receptor (MOR). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Stress : From a biological, social, and psychological perspective

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Författare :Louise Karlsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :stress; social stress; BPS model; HPA axis; coping; TSST;

    Sammanfattning : Over the years stress has been a term lacking one clear and specific definition. In general, the term stress has been used mostly as an explanation of a response or reaction to a stressor. A stressor can be of both physiological and behavioral character. The experience of stress can occur both due to a real or a perceived stressor. LÄS MER

  5. 5. How does variation in corticosterone relate to animal personality?

    Kandidat-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Författare :Viktoria Oskarsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :animal personality; correlation; corticosterone; HPA axis; personality traits; stress;

    Sammanfattning : Animal personality is a fairly new branch of biology and has been defined as a difference in behaviour between individuals that is relatively consistent across time and/or context. What researchers now are interested in is to find out what it is that creates and maintains this relatively consistent difference between individuals. LÄS MER
