Pax6 encodes a specific DNA-binding transcription factor that regulates the development of multiple organs, including the eye, brain and pancreas. Previous studies have shown that Pax6 regulates the entire process of ocular lens development. In the developing forebrain, Pax6 is expressed in ventricular zone precursor cells and in specific populations of(More)
Introduction of short-term disturbances into the biomechanical structure of the human gait with simultaneous recording of the muscle electrical activity has been used to demonstrate that the human body has an intraspinal locomotor program consisting of an inhibition period, when afferent stimuli cause no response, and an excitation period, when the(More)
The main functions of a method of functional electrical stimulation of muscles (FES) are described: diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic. The main indication for using the FES method is a deficiency of muscle function, which may be organic (due to lesions to neuromuscular structures) or functional (associated with relaxation of the muscular apparatus).(More)
The Research Institute of Prosthesis and Prosthesis Making, Moscow, has developed a method for artificial movement correction (AMC) and designed a programmable muscle electrostimulation device (PMED) for its application. The essence of the AMC method is that to use a multichannel PMED in a good agreement with the natural programme of muscle excitation and(More)
In recent years electric stimulation of the lower limbs muscles in man while walking, particularly for cases of infantile cerebral paralysis, has found wide application. The device implementing correction of the pace components in walking must be carried directly by man. Therefore, it should be of a minature size, light weight, cheap and contain an(More)
Mammalian external genitals show sexual dimorphism [1, 2] and can change size and shape upon sexual arousal. Genitals feature prominently in the oldest pieces of figural art [3] and phallic depictions of penises informed psychoanalytic thought about sexuality [4, 5]. Despite this longstanding interest, the neural representations of genitals are still poorly(More)
A technique for investigation of biomechanical and electromyographic parameters of gait in patients with diplegic form of children cerebral palsy (CCP) was described. Peculiarities of biomechanical and innervation structure of locomotor act in such patients were found. Recommendations for muscle electrostimulation during gait were specified. The best(More)
