We investigated whether aspirin can significantly modulate latencies or durations of the early (ES1) and late (ES2) exteroceptive suppression periods of electrical activity in the temporal muscle. Participating in the(More)
Prevalence of cervical and thoracic disc protrusions was investigated by MRI in 24 military long-term compressed-air divers and 24 controls. A total of 26 disc protrusions (17 cervical disc protrusions) were detected in 58% of the divers whereas 18 protrusions were detected in 38 % of the controls (13 disc cervical protrusions). There was no significant(More)
