Fast rhythmic bursting pyramidal neuron or chattering neuron is a promising candidate for the pacemaker of coherent gamma-band (25-70 Hz) cortical oscillation. It, however, still remains to be clarified how the neuron generates such high-frequency bursts. Here, we demonstrate in a single-compartment model neuron that the fast rhythmic bursts (FRBs) can be(More)
Analysis of gait in patients with acute unilateral peripheral vestibular disorders was performed using foot switches and electromyography, with the aid of a telemetry system. Among the eight parameters set for the analysis, the occurrence rate of abnormality in the coefficient of variation (CV) was the highest (78%) for the time from heel strike to forefoot(More)
Gait analysis utilizing foot switches and electromyography of antigravity muscles was performed on 31 patients with vertigo. Twenty-one cases had peripheral vestibular lesions (such as vestibular neuronitis, Menière's disease, traumatic labyrinthitis, small acoustic neuroma), and 10 cases had central lesions (such as spinocerebellar degeneration, pontine(More)
A preparation was developed to investigate the synaptic connections of the pterygopalatine ganglion (P.P.G.) neurons of the rabbit. Many neurons received synaptic inputs from more than one preganglionic fiber in the vidian nerve (preganglionic nerve) with a wide range of conduction velocities. It is assumed that P.P.G. neurons integrate synaptic inputs from(More)
1. We examined the preganglionic splanchnic nerve activity and postganglionic renal nerve activity before and after a local injection of naloxone (20 micrograms/kg) into the coeliac ganglion of anaesthetized rabbits. This was done during graded hypertension, induced by the administration of phenylephrine (0.5-10 micrograms/kg, i.v.) and with selective(More)
