Major depressive disorder is a debilitating disease in the Western World. A western diet high in saturated fat and refined sugar seems to play an important part in disease development. Therefore, this study is aimed at investigating whether saturated fat or sucrose predisposes mice to develop behavioral symptoms which can be interpreted as depression-like,(More)

Location based or " context aware " computing is becoming increasingly recognized as a vital part of a mobile computing environment. As a consequence , the need for location-management middleware is widely recognized and actively researched. Location-management is frequently offered to the application through a " location API " (e.g. JSR 179) where the(More)
Over the last two decades, simulation of construction operations has gained momentum in its ability to provide solutions and understand complex problems. However, there still remains a distinct gap between its role in academia and industry. This gap is not necessarily due to the strategy --- process interaction or activity scanning --- but in the(More)
Transferring gut microbiota from one individual to another may enable researchers to "humanize" the gut of animal models and transfer phenotypes between species. To date, most studies of gut microbiota transfer are performed in germ-free mice. In the studies presented, it was tested whether an antibiotic treatment approach could be used instead. C57BL/6(More)
The importance of the gut microbiota (GM) in disease development has recently received increased attention, and numerous approaches have been made to better understand this important interplay. For example, metabolites derived from the GM have been shown to promote atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and to increase CVD(More)
