We used voltage-sensitive-dye-based imaging techniques to identify and characterize the insular auditory field (IAF) in mice. Previous research has identified five auditory fields in the mouse auditory cortex, including the primary field and the anterior auditory field. This study confirmed the existence of the primary field and anterior auditory field by(More)
This study aimed to identify the parietal ventral (PV) area of the somatosensory cortex in mice and to determine whether auditory cortex and somatosensory cortex overlap. Using high resolution, voltage-sensitive dye-based imaging, we identified the PV area, which exhibited strong responses to stimulation of distal body parts but weak responses to(More)
BACKGROUND Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) have been established for primary and secondary prevention of fatal arrhythmias. However, little is known about the influence of ICD indications on quality of life (QOL) and psychological disturbances. This study aimed to examine whether there were differences in QOL and psychological distress in(More)
