Recovering a neuronal network: Stroke affects the brain and entire nervous system, requiring an integrated treatment plan to recover impaired functionality

(Natural News) Medical advances have yet to design a proper treatment and management plan for stroke recovery that is truly effective. It is estimated that while a majority of patients recover from their initial stroke, a massive 60 percent are left with a diminished arm or leg, and another 15 percent are unable to re-enter...

Authors: Umemoto G, Furuya H Abstract Various methods of rehabilitation for dysphagia have been suggested through the experience of treating stroke patients. Although most of these patients recover their swallowing function in a short period, dysphagia in Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson-related disorder (PRD) degenerates with disease progression. Muscle rigidity and bradykinesia are recognized as causes of swallowing dysfunction, and it is difficult to easily apply the strategies for stroke to the rehabilitation of dysphagia in PD patients. Disease severity, weight loss, drooling, and dementia are important ...

ConclusionThe stroke presented large inter-swimmer variability, reflecting individual characteristics and severity of the impairment. The swimmers who combined shallow and narrow stroke movements produced a shorter trajectory. This study provides swimmers and coaches with an overview of the kinematic characteristics of a range of physically impaired swimmers.RésuméIntroductionCette étude a eu pour objectif d’évaluer les paramètres tridimensionnels de la cinématique du mouvement crawlé chez des nageurs présentant des limitations fonctionnelles de différent...

Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...

Excessive alcohol consumption leads to alcohol use disorder. Alcohol is metabolized to acetaldehyde, which is then oxidized to acetic acid by aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH), a class of enzymes that facilitate the conversion of aldehydes to their corresponding acids. Among ALDHs, mitochondrial ALDH2 is the primary enzyme involved in the metabolism of acetaldehyde. In addition to its well-known role in ethanol metabolism, recent studies have suggested that ALDH2 dysfunction is associated with a variety of human diseases including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, cancer, anemia, pain, osteoporosis and aging.

In this study, we propose a deep convolution neural network for stroke magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) segmentation. The main structure of our network consists of two symmetrical deep sub-networks, in which dense blocks are embedded for extracting effective features from sparse pixels to alleviate the over-fitting problem of deep networks. We use the multi-kernel to divide the network into two sub-networks for acquiring more receptive fields, and the dropout regularization method to achieve an effective feature mapping. For the post-processing of the soft segmentation, we use image median filtering to alleviate noises and ...
