BACKGROUND Recent preclinical work strongly suggests that vagus nerve stimulation efficiently modulates nociception and pain processing in humans. Most recently, a medical device has offered a transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve (t-VNS) without any surgery. OBJECTIVE Our study investigates whether t-VNS may(More)
Producing a global and comprehensive description of atmospheric aerosols requires integration of ground-based, airborne, satellite and model datasets. Due to its complexity, aerosol monitoring requires the use of several data records with complementary information content. This paper describes the lessons learned while developing and qualifying algorithms(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the ability of diffusion-tensor imaging (DTI) and T2 to help detect the mildest nerve lesion conceivable, that is, subclinical ulnar neuropathy at the elbow. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study was approved by the institutional ethics board. Written informed consent was obtained from all participants. Magnetic resonance(More)
Recent evidence points to an overlap in the neural systems processing pain and social distress. In this functional MRI study we focus on the possible interplay between the processing of a psychosocial stressor and somatic pain within pain responsive brain regions, the latter being identified in an independent localizer experiment. A paradigm based on(More)
