The motoneurons of the oculomotor complex responsible for controlling accommodation and pupil size of the marmoset were identified by injecting horseradish peroxidase (HRP) into the ciliary ganglion. The anatomical organization of accommodation and pupil constrictor motoneurons was determined using electrical stimulation techniques. HRP-labelled cells were(More)
Parasympathetic motoneurones in the oculomotor complex which innervate the ciliary ganglion were identified using the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) retrograde axonal tracer technique. The ciliary ganglion was located behind the eye by a lateral orbital approach and injected with HRP pellets mounted on the tips of microelectrodes. Most of the labelled cells(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of adding whole-body vibration (WBV; frequency = 35 to 40 Hz; amplitude = 4 mm) to squat training on the T-cell proliferative response of elderly patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. This study was a randomized controlled trial in which the selected variables were assessed before and after 12(More)
Hypertension is characterized by a pro-inflammatory status, including redox imbalance and increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which may be exacerbated after heat exposure. However, the effects of heat exposure, specifically in individuals with inflammatory chronic diseases such as hypertension, are complex and not well understood. This study(More)
Brain serotonin and dopamine are neurotransmitters related to fatigue, a feeling that leads to reduced intensity or interruption of physical exercises, thereby regulating performance. The present review aims to present advances on the understanding of fatigue, which has recently been proposed as a defense mechanism instead of a "physiological failure" in(More)
