Then a great stress buster like no other, yoga, is said to work wonders for both mind and body and bring about holistic healing and increase your resistance to the stress triggers. In general, while yoga is said to calm the senses , there are certain poses or asanas of yoga that work on letting go of stress and tension. Try these out. Eagle Pose (Garudasana) This pose calls for concentration and focussing of the mind towards a single end. It is an excellent tool for managing stress. It also aids to release  shoulder stiffness and also tightness in the hips  which are the area prone to accumulation of emotional tension. Steps From Tadasana, set your feet hip-width at a distance, with arms open. Take your right arm above the left. Bending the elbows,bring together your palms. Transfer the load to the four corners of your right foot with knees bent slightly. Lift up your left thigh above the right one. If you feel okay with your  knees ,  you are able to clasp your toes at the back of the right calf, then you can do so; else, you can put down your foot as it is . Do not force yourself to perform this. Take on the middle and begin sinking down your hips as you...

This study was designed to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients with nutcracker syndrome (NCS) who were treated with three-dimensional printing (3DP) extravascular titanium stents (EVTSs). The 3DP EVTS was expected to release the hypertension of the left renal vein (LRV) produced by its compression between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the aorta without causing any complications. METHOD: The pre-operative kidney model of each patient was printed out to enable surgical planning. After that, the EVTS was designed based on the LRV's primitive physiologic structure using computer-aided de...

The process involves the fabrication of a pre-threaded hole on the Al alloy prior to the joining process, and the threading/crest-pitch profile aids mechanical interlocking. The peak temperature, cre...

ConclusionOur study revealed brain structural abnormalities in emotional regulation and sensory processing regions of anxious depression, which may suggested distinct neurobiological mechanisms of this MDD specifier and could help explain different clinical manifestations in anxious depression from pure depression.

Publication date: Available online 18 June 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Rita Pasion, Fernando BarbosaAbstractThe comorbidity between discrete clinical diagnosis occurs in higher levels than prevalence rates, indicating that mental disorders are systematically overcategorized. Dimensional models – as the Internalizing-Externalizing Spectrum – claim for a common latent structure of psychopathology. The current meta-analysis aims to evaluate whether the externalizing and internalizing latent factors of the psychopathological spectrum display common and distinctive neurobiological s...

RosembergAbstractThe ability to detect noxious stimuli is essential to survival. However, pathological pain is maladaptive and severely debilitating. Endogenous and exogenous opioids modulate pain responses via opioid receptors, reducing pain sensibility. Due to the high genetic and physiological similarities to rodents and humans, the zebrafish is a valuable tool to assess pain responses and the underlying mechanisms involved in nociception. Although morphi...

It has been reported that the expression of CaVα2δ1 increases in the dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) of animals with mechanical allodynia, and that the transcr...

In this study, we determined whether spinal SGK1 signaling contributes to the development of morphine analgesic tolerance. Chronic morphine administration markedly induced phosphorylation of SGK1 in the spinal dorsal horn neurons. Intrathecal injection of SGK1 inhibitor GSK-650394 reduced the development of morphine tolerance with a significant leftward shift in morphine dose-effect curve. Furthermore, spinal inhibition of SGK1 suppressed morphine-induced phosphorylation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) p65 and upregulation of NMDAR NR1 and NR2B expression in the spinal dorsal horn. In contrast, intrathecal administ...

We describe a case of a 70-year old man with sensorimotor chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) with small-fibre involvement resulting in severe diffuse neuropathic pain which was refractory to immunotherapy and anti-neuropathic medication. His pain was successfully treated with implantation of a spinal cord stimulation (SCS) system comprising bilateral cervical and lumbar epidural leads. Following SCS programming, he experienced a 50% reduction in average pain severity with substantial improvement in quality of life, persisting at 18 months after surgery. SCS has been employed to treat a variety of ne...

AbstractNeural injury, inflammation, or diseases commonly and adversely affect micturition reflex function that is organized by neural circuits in the CNS and PNS. One neuropeptide receptor system, pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP;Adcyap1), and its cognate receptor, PAC1 (Adcyap1r1), have tissue-specific distributions in the lower urinary tract. PACAP and associated receptors are expressed in the LUT and exhibit changes in expression, distribution, and function in preclinical animal models of bladder pain syndrome (BPS)/interstitial cystitis (IC), a chronic, visceral pain syndrome characterized by ...
