There is strong evidence that commissural interneurons, neurons with axons that extend to the contralateral side of the spinal cord, play an important role in the coordination of left/right alternation during locomotion. In this study we investigated the projections of commissural interneurons to motor neurons and other commissural interneurons on the other(More)
This paper first gives a selective and critical review of conventional sociological variables included into epidemiologic and clinical studies of ischemic heart disease (IHD). In a second section, links between social and biological processes are discussed, and a conceptual sociological approach is developed which relates critical experiences of active(More)
Data of a retrospective case control study on 380 male patients with clinically documented first myocardial infarction (MI) (age 30-55) as well as findings of a follow-up over 18 months of 70% of this sample are presented. Results show first, that specific work stressors, lack of social support, and acute life changes are each significantly more prevalent(More)
The circuits that generate rhythmic locomotor activities are located in the ventromedial area of the lumbar spinal cord and comprise commissural interneurons necessary for left-right alternation during walking movements. In this study we injected biotinylated dextran amine (BDA) into the ventromedial gray matter of the lumbar spinal cord of neonatal rats to(More)
It is well established that last-order premotor interneurons in the spinal cord have crucial importance in the integration of activities generated by the spinal motor apparatus, sensory information and volleys arising from higher motor centers, indicating that they play a substantial role in spinal motor functions. Despite extensive studies, synaptic input(More)
We have previously found that unilateral labyrinthectomy is accompanied by modification of hyaluronan and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan staining in the lateral vestibular nucleus of rats and the time course of subsequent reorganization of extracellular matrix assembly correlates to the restoration of impaired vestibular function. The tenascin-R has(More)
The location specific motor pattern generation properties of the spinal cord along its rostro-caudal axis have been demonstrated. However, it is still unclear that these differences are due to the different spinal interneuronal networks underlying locomotions or there are also segmental differences in motoneurons innervating different limbs. Frogs use their(More)
The extent of coronary-prone behavior (CPB) is partially dependent upon specific, contextual characteristics of the work setting. Specific work demands reinforce a style of unrealistic cognitive appraisal which is thought to form a significant part of CPB. In order to test this assumption in a first step, we developed a questionnaire measuring this notion(More)
