Concepts and Concept Learning in Physics - The systemic view

Tommi Kokkonen

Research in science education has long been concerned with a problem that students acquire conceptions which are unsatisfactory from the scientific point of view. These conceptions are also often robust and slow to change. The learning process whereby the students’ conceptions undergo a change is often viewed from the point of view of conceptual change. In this thesis, this traditional p...

Haemodynamic Effects of MK-467 in combination with Medetomidine and Selected Sedative and Anaesthetic Agents in Dogs

Kati Salla

Medetomidine (MED), an 2-adrenergic agonist, is widely used in veterinary practice as a sedative and premedication agent, as it provides reliable sedation. However, the marked haemodynamic changes limit its use to only healthy patients. MK-467, a peripheral 2 -adrenoceptor antagonist, has been demonstrated to attenuate the early haemodynamic disturbances induced by MED with intravenous c...

Obesity, sirtuins, cardiorespiratory fitness, and metabolic health - modeling acquired environmental effects

Sakari Jukarainen

Subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) dysfunction has been theorized to drive some of the effects of obesity on metabolic health. Sirtuin (SIRT) proteins and their activity have recently been proposed as possible mediators of subcutaneous adipose tissue dysfunction in obesity. SIRTs are NAD+-dependent deacylases that regulate various cellular functions (e.g. transcription factors) according ...

Bisphosphonate treatment in children with osteogenesis imperfecta : Benefits and concerns

Ilkka Vuorimies

Osteogenesis imperfecta is an inherited disorder of connective tissue characterized by bone fragility and low bone mass. It is caused by quantitatively or structurally abnormal type I collagen. Bisphosphonates, a group of anti-resorptive drugs, are commonly used as a medical therapy in children with osteogenesis imperfecta. A large number of studies have demonstrated their beneficial eff...

European bat lyssavirus type 2 in Finland - Surveillance, evolutionary analysis, and prevention with vaccination

Tiina Nokireki

European bat lyssavirus type 2 (EBLV-2) was first isolated in Finland from a Daubenton’s bat (Myotis daubentonii) in 2009. Rabies in bats was already suspected in 1985, when a Swiss biologist died in Finland of lyssavirus infection, later identified as EBLV-2 infection. However, the origin of the infection could not be confirmed at that time. In 2010–2011, during active surveillance stud...

Neuropsychiatric symptoms in dementia and delirium

Eeva Hölttä

Dementia with neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPSs) and delirium are the two most important and challenging neurocognitive disorders among frail, older, multimorbid patients. Both disorders manifest with cognitive decline and multiple NPSs. Dementia patients are prone to delirium, and a large proportion of patients with delirium develops dementia in a few years. However, little is known about...

Bioluminescence of Toxic Dinoflagellates in the Baltic Sea - From Genes to Models

Anniina Le Tortorec

Phytoplankton constitute the basis of food webs and are responsible for almost all photosynthesis in the open sea. Occasionally, given suitable conditions, one phytoplankton species can increase in abundance and form a mass occurrence known as a bloom. Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), in turn, can have adverse effects on the ecosystem, for example causing oxygen depletion, clogging of fish g...

Solid-phase microextraction based sampling techniques for the analysis of volatile organic compounds in the atmosphere

Luís Miguel Feijó Barreira

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) comprise a large diversity of species that are emitted into the atmosphere from both biogenic and anthropogenic sources. These species play a key role in atmospheric photochemistry, due to their high reactivity with atmospheric oxidants, and in the formation and growth of secondary organic aerosols. The trace levels usually found in ambient air and the e...

Actors' roles and perceptions on the opportunities to increase nature conservation effectiveness: A study of interaction between knowledge and policy process

Anna Salomaa

Scientific knowledge shows compelling evidence of intensifying global environmental problems such as biodiversity loss and climate change. Unfortunately, this knowledge has not been directly translated into actions that would have reversed these worrying trends. The effectiveness of conservation, i.e. its ability to produce a desired result, is the outcome of interaction between knowledg...

The conundrum of pre-eclampsia - from candidate genes to complement system

A. Inkeri Lokki

The human pregnancy is a unique immunological process. The foetus is tolerated and nourished through the complex yet transient organ, placenta, which bears the genetic fingerprint of the developing baby. Human placentation involves several waves of invasion, whereby the placenta is deeply attached to layers of the uterine wall, through the mucosal lining of the uterus, the decidua and in...

FUR ANIMAL EPIDEMIC NECROTIC PYODERMA PATHOLOGY, ETIOLOGY, AND EPIDEMIOLOGY

Heli Nordgren

In 2007 Finnish fur farmers detected new kind of signs in farmed mink, foxes and raccoon dogs (Finnraccoon). Mink had severe pyoderma in the head around eyes, mouth or ears or in the feet around the nailbeds. Finnraccoons developed painful abscesses in the paws between the toes. Foxes had severe keratoconjunctivitis that occasionally spread to the eyelids and to facial dermatitis. The ...
