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)
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)
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)
The main features, namely diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic, of functional myoelectrostimulation (FMES) method are described. FMES is primarily indicated in muscle function deficit, which can be organic (neuromuscle disorders) and functional (muscle relaxation). Five most essential FMES operations include: (1) choice of correctable movements and(More)
The ideology of a method of muscle electrostimulation (MES) in walking up and down the stairs is under discussion in the paper. It is pointed out that the above locomotor acts, which are based on the central innervation program, are principally similar; periods and zones of muscle excitation and inhibition during the locomotor cycle are specified; MES is(More)
Kinematic and electromyographic parameters in conduction of rhythmic movements on the bicycle ergometer were studied in a group of healthy subjects. It is shown that these movements are characterized by a stable biomechanical and innervation stereotype consisting of two interacting synergies: flexor and extensor. Force extensor synergy plays the key role(More)
