Electrical stimulation (ES) of injured peripheral nerves accelerates axonal regeneration in laboratory animals. However, clinical applicability of this intervention has never been investigated in human subjects. The aim of this pilot study was to determine the effect of ES on axonal regeneration after surgery in patients with median nerve compression in the(More)
The Moberg Pick-Up Test is a standardized test for assessing hand dexterity. Although reduction of sensation in the hand occurs with aging, the effect of age on a subject's performance of the Moberg Pick-Up Test has not been examined. The primary goal of this study was to examine the impact of aging and, secondarily, the impact of gender and handedness, on(More)
In the adult mouse, the antiserum to nerve growth factor (NGF) induced marked atrophic changes of the ganglionic cell bodies in the superior cervical ganglion (SCG) and a disappearance of adrenergic nerve terminals in several peripheral tissues. By fluorescence histochemistry a lower-than-normal content of the noradrenaline (NA) transmitter was observed(More)
1. Quantitative histological analysis has been made of the effects of nerve growth factor (NGF) from mouse submaxillary gland and from the venom of Vipera russelli on superior cervical ganglia of neonatal mice. 2. The hypertrophic and hyperplastic effects reported by other workers have been confirmed. 3. The hypertrophic effect arises from an increase in(More)
