Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry
We perform research, teach and inform about animal structure and function in health, stress, disease and production, from molecular mechanisms to whole animals.
On the 28th of February Emma Persson-Sjödin nailed her theses entitled "Evaluation of vertical movement asymmetries in riding horses- relevance to equine orthopaedics.
The thesis investigates the clinical significance and interpretation of vertical movement asymmetries in riding horses under different circumstances. Pain medication proved ineffective in reducing movement asymmetries in riding horses in training while 'rising trot' induced movement asymmetries. The challenging discrimination between true forelimb lameness and compensatory head movement asymmetry could be facilitated by concurrent evaluation of withers movement symmetry. The public defence will take place on september 25th.
