Low-intensity electrical current (or mild electrical stimulation; MES) influences signal transduction and activates phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway. Because insulin resistance is characterized by a marked reduction in insulin-stimulated PI3K-mediated activation of Akt, we asked whether MES could increase Akt phosphorylation and ameliorate(More)
[Purpose] This study investigated the relationship between toe grip strength and foot posture in children. [Subjects and Methods] A total of 619 children participated in this study. The foot posture of the participants was measured using a foot printer and toe grip strength was measured using a toe grip dynamometer. Children were classified into 3 groups;(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate which spatial and temporal parameters of the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test are associated with motor function in elderly individuals. METHODS This study included 99 community-dwelling women aged 72.9 ± 6.3 years. Step length, step width, single support time, variability of the aforementioned parameters,(More)
We report on a 14-month-old boy who had acute multiple infarcts in the posterior circulation due to an extremely early onset of spontaneous vertebral artery dissection. Despite the absence of clinical signs of connective tissue disorders, an ultrastructural change of collagen fibrils and elastic fibers indicated connective tissue abnormalities. Arterial(More)
The three-dimensional architectures of the perigemmal cells and their keratin bundles in the rat circumvallate papillae were studied by transmission and scanning electron microscopy. The perigemmal cells were classified into three layers: basal, middle and upper. The basal layer consisted of polygonal cells located close to the basal lamina, the middle(More)
