Editor Fibrous papule of the face (FPF) is a benign lesion commonly located on the lower nose in middle-aged adults. It appears as a solitary, skin-coloured or erythematous, dome-shaped papule, and measuring 3–5 mm in diameter. Histologically, it is an angiofibroma and spindle or stellate cells are scattered throughout the lesion. 1 Two unusual variants(More)
The effect of topical application of human recombinant interleukin-1 beta (IL-1) on afferent sensory transmission to the neurones in the primary somatosensory (SI) cortex was determined in anesthetized rats. Quantitative determination of the effect of IL-1 was made by generating post-stimulus time histograms of unit responses to the stimulation of receptive(More)
Bombesin was intracisternally administered to determine the effects on the neuronal activities of the dorsal column nuclei (DCN) of anesthetized rats. Although averaged afferent somatosensory transmission through 22 DCN neurons did not appear to be altered by bombesin (-1.11 +/- 3.5%), 12 of them were actually augmented (+17.15 +/- 2.7%) and 10 of them were(More)
Input for fully implantable hearing devices (FIHDs) is provided by an implantable microphone under the skin of the temporal bone. However, the implanted microphone can be affected when the FIHDs user chews. In this paper, a dual implantable microphone was designed that can filter out the noise from mastication. For the in vivo experiment, a fabricated(More)
