Electrophysiological Features of Neurons in the Mesencephalic Trigeminal Nuclei.

Electrophysiological Features of Neurons in the Mesencephalic Trigeminal Nuclei. Neurosignals. 2015 Jan 9;22(2):79-91 Authors: Xing JL, Hu SJ, Yang J Abstract Mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus (Mes V) neurons represent an uncommon class of primary sensory neurons. Besides receiving somatosensory information, Mes V neurons are also involved in regulating multisensory information. The present review first describes the passive features as well as three important currents, followed by a distinct excitability classification and a description of the excitability transition of Mes V neurons. Furthermore, their resonance property, the existence of membrane oscillation and electrical coupling which may promote strong synchronization, as well as their function in controlling stretch reflex activity, are discussed. © 2015 S.

AlFaris, Ghasan Elhissi, Aziza Chedrawi, Mohammad Al-MuhaizeaAbstractRecessive congenital methemoglobinemia (RCM) is a rare neurological disorder caused by a deficiency in NADH-CYB5R. RCM has two main types I&II, with cyanosis being the hallmark feature in both. Type-I is a mild form, with cyanosis being the only feature. While type-II is the severe form with prominent neurological symptoms including, dystonia and spasticity. However, the cyanosis is subtle and difficult to appreciate. The...

Focusing attention on biological markers of acute stressor intensity: empirical evidence and limitations. NEUROSCIENCE AND BIOBEHAVIORAL REVIEWS. The availability of biological markers that objectively quantify stress is a highly relevant issue. However, experimental evidence suggests that most physiological changes elicited by emotional stressors do not reflect their intensity and are not useful for this purpose. Thus, we review exp...

Authors: Fontes MAP, Marzano LAS, Silva CC, Silva ACSE Abstract Despite the current availability of safe and efficient drugs for treating hypertension, a substantial number of patients are drug-resistant hypertensives. Aiming this condition, a relatively new approach named catheter-based renal denervation was developed. We have now a clinically relevant time window to review the efficacy of renal denervation for treating this form of hypertension. This short review addresses the physiological contribution of renal sympathetic nerves for blood pressure control and discusses the pros and cons of renal denervation pro...

In conclusion, ivabradine does not exhibit anti-arrhythmic properties in CPVT, which indicates that this blocker cannot be used as a plausible treatment for CPVT ventricular arrhythmias.

Conclusion: This is the first report of any pathogenic splice variant at first exon/intron boundary implicated in RPA and suggests another mechanism through which RDH5 variants could be associated with eye phenotype. This study also highlights the importance of a thorough phenotypic evaluation of heterozygous mutation carriers who may exhibit milder symptoms. PMID: 31933420 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Sacral reflexes are important to allow the SCI practitioner to gain information about the state of the sacral spinal cord segments. The presence of the bulbocavernosus and/or the anal wink reflex indicate an intact spinal reflex arc and reflex conal autonomic function (as part of the upper motor neuron syndrome); their absence defines a lower motor neuron syndrome. The assessment of sacral reflexes helps predict the type of bladder, bowel and sexual functions and the related therapeutic interventions. We suggest adding the sacral component of the International Standards for the Assessment of Autonomic Fun...
