It is general accepted, that nerval excitement and conduction is caused by voltage changes. However, the influx of fluid into an elastical tube releases impulses or pressure waves. Therefore an influx of ion currents, respectively fluid motions into the elastic neuronal cells and fibres also induce impulses. This motion of charge carriers are measured by(More)
Post-mortem brain regions of schizophrenics were investigated in comparison to matched controls regarding synaptosomal K+-stimulated [3H]DA release and its modulation by DA autoreceptors. Brain specimens were cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen until release experiments; synaptosomes from brain pieces preincubated with dimethylsulfoxide have unchanged ability(More)
In tissues with elastic properties, an edema causes a raised tissue pressure and therefore a diminished blood flow. The authors assume that an increased tissue pressure due to local and/or relapsing edema may be the cause for incomplete necrosis (e.g. demyelinated lesions) or seldom complete necrosis in the brain. Newly forming demyelinating lesions seldom(More)
Corresponding Author: Helmut Barz Department of Neuropathology, Dietrich-Bonhoeffer Hospital Neubrandenburg, MecklenburgWest-Pomerania, Germany Email: helmutbarz@gmx.de Abstract: A general brain edema increases the size of the brain tissue and stretches the elastic neuronal and glial fibers. Myelinated fibers are more elastic than unmyelinated fibers. The(More)
Due to the elastic properties of the human organs, tissue edema causes an increased tissue pressure. This phenomenon leads to a reduction of blood circulation or ischemia, and thus leads to the hypothesis that tissue edema can be the cause of demyelinating lesions. Even though brain edema occurs in the whole brain, the authors assume that the(More)

The concept of "the unconscious" is considered the central concept of depth psychology. While the unconscious in Freud's conception consists essentially of repressed material and through conversion can result in psychosomatic illnesses, C. G. Jung saw in the "collective unconscious", which he discovered, the source of all psychic and spiritual development.(More)
