Effects of press needle technique (PN), electroacupuncture (EA), or in-situ technique (IS) on vibration-induced finger flexion reflex (VFR) were examined in 31 healthy adults. VFR, which is tonic finger flexion evoked by vibration applied to the finger tip, was induced by vibrating the volar side of the middle finger tip before and after acupuncture.(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of the Sparrow Pecking (SP) technique with that of the In-Situ (IS) technique of acupuncture on vibration-induced finger flexion reflex (VFR). Subjects were 30 healthy adults. VFR, flexion movement of the vibrated finger, was induced by vibrating the volar side of the middle finger tip. The acupuncture(More)
BACKGROUND Temporal low-voltage irregular delta-waves (TLID) are often found in elderly subjects. The physiological significance of TLID has not been clarified; however, our previous studies suggest that TLID are associated with mild cerebrovascular dysfunction. OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to reveal the origin of TLID and their neural mechanisms by(More)
The histological subtype of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a significant factor when selecting treatment strategies. However, cases are occasionally encountered that are diagnosed as 'not otherwise specified' (NOS) prior to surgery, due to an uncertain histological subtype. The present study investigated the prognostic significance of the NOS subtype(More)
Pulmonary large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) is a rare and aggressive malignant tumor, which was proposed as a novel type of neuroendocrine tumor in 1991. Although it is categorized as a non-small cell lung carcinoma, the precise pathological condition is unknown due to its rare occurrence. The present study outlines the case of a patient(More)
