While we have a fair understanding of how and where forelimb-hand manipulative movements are controlled by the neocortex, due to functional imaging studies, we know little about the control of bipedal movements such as walking because of technical difficulties. We succeeded in visualizing cortical activation patterns of human gait by measuring relative(More)
Substantial evidence indicates that brain neurons containing and secreting norepinephrine (NE) and corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) are activated during stress. The acoustic startle reflex (ASR) can be enhanced by CRH neuronal activity in the central nucleus of the amygdala. Our previous study demonstrates an augmentation of the footshock-induced ASR(More)
We investigated age-related changes in the distribution of body weight on soles of feet in 878 healthy subjects ranging from 5 to 80 years of age. By modifying Morton's Staticometer, we constructed an instrument for measuring body-weight distribution over three areas of soles of the feet, the big toe (inner forefoot), the other four toes combined (outer(More)
