OBJECTIVES The proposal of the present study is based on mobilizing the nervous system of the upper hemiplegic limb of stroke victims using the Upper Limb Neurodynamic Test (ULNT 1) and electromyographic analysis of the biceps brachii muscle. METHODS A pre-experimental study was carried out with pretest and posttest repeated measurements on five stroke(More)
INTRODUCTION Orofacial pain and pain in the muscles of mastication are frequent symptoms of temporomandibular disorder. The masseter is the closet masticatory muscle to the surface and has the function of raising and retracting the mandible. This muscle has considerable strength and is one of the main muscles involved in the shredding of food It is(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypertonia is prevalent in anti-gravity muscles, such as the biceps brachii. Neural mobilization is one of the techniques currently used to reduce spasticity. OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to assess electromyographic (EMG) activity in spastic biceps brachii muscles before and after neural mobilization of the upper limb(More)
Excessive Aβ deposition in the brain is associated with the formation of senile plaques, and their diffuse distribution is related to Alzheimer's disease. Thirty rats (EG) were irradiated with light-emitting diode (photobiomodulation (PBM)) in the frontal region of the skull after being inoculated with the Aβ toxin in the hippocampus; 30 rats were used as(More)
Resumo: O presente estudo avaliou a influência da administração, aguda e subaguda, em diferentes doses de sacarose e do extrato aquoso da Uvarana sobre processos hiperalgésicos induzidos por capsaicina, através do teste de retirada de cauda (tail-flick). Utilizou-se 24 animais divididos em grupos experimentais, grupo controle, grupo sacarose e grupo(More)
medicamentos sintéticos [1,2]. A uvarana, Cordyline dracaenoides Kunth (Agavaceae), única espécie neotropical do gênero, é uma planta monocotiledônea do porte de uma árvore pequena (até 9m de altura, no Brasil) [3]. Os efeitos farmacológicos produzidos pela Uvarana estão de acordo com a parte da planta utilizada. Efeito anestésico, redução locomotora,(More)
