The role of the primary somatosensory cortex in thermal pain perception has been established. However, the cortical circuitry that mediates the thermo-nociceptive information processing has not been elucidated. The aim of present study was to investigate the intracortical synaptic currents in primary somatosensory cortex evoked by short laser pulses and to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of static magnetic field (SMF) exposure on the synaptic transmission in a tail-flip circuit of crayfish. MATERIALS AND METHODS An O-shaped permanent magnet (35 mT intensity) was placed under the isolated nerve cord of crayfish to provide static magnetic field exposure. Using electrophysiological methods, the excitatory(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether exposure to static magnetic field (SMF) affects the passive properties of neurons that mediate tail-flip escape behavior in crayfish. MATERIALS AND METHODS A permanent magnet was placed under the isolated nerve cord of crayfish to experience SMF at 4.74 to 43.45 mT intensity for various period of time (20 seconds to 3(More)
INTRODUCTION Wall shear stress (WSS) is critically important in both vascular remodeling and atherosclerosis. Carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and deformation parameters have been used as relevant indicators of carotid atherosclerosis. This study aimed to investigate the relationships between hemodynamic parameters in the common carotid artery (CCA) and(More)
