Slow rhythmic oscillations in the human cranial cavity were studied using two noninvasive methods: the bioimpedance method (volume ratios between liquid media in the cranial cavity) and transcranial ultrasound Doppler echography (variation in the blood flow in the middle cerebral artery). The combination of these methods made it possible to estimate the(More)
This investigation shows that both intracranial liquor circulation and skull biomechanical properties evaluated by its pliability (compliance) to intracranial pressure are characterised by marked interhemisphere asymmetry. The interhemisphere differences of cerebrospinal fluid mobility were evaluated by means of asymmetry coefficient (right/left ratio of(More)
The mechanism of formation of rhythmic, slow-wave oscillations in the craniospinal cavity were studied. Synchronous bioimpedance traces were made of the head and lumbosacral part of the spine in five healthy young subjects at rest and during voluntary breath-holding; these reflect changes in the ratios of blood and CSF volumes in these parts of the(More)
Biomechanical properties of the human skull affect its dynamic tensility (pliability or compliance) at changes of intracranial volume and pressure (ΔV/ΔP). The work substantiates a possibility of noninvasive and dynamic evaluation of cranial compliance by synchronous recording of transcranial dopplerogram of middle cerebral artery and cranial bioimpedance(More)
For the last decade, owing to methods of computerized neuroradiology, it has been established that the process of the human organism natural aging is accompanied by a gradual atrophic reduction of the brain tissue volume and a decrease of the cerebral blood flow level, while the intracranial cerebrospinal fluid volume increases. The goal of the present(More)
It was found that a resistant strain R2 of C. albicans obtained as a result of passages on media containing increasing concentrations of amphotericin B differed from the initial strain by its lower pathogenicity. Treatment of the infection caused by the resistant strain on modeling of candidiasis in mice was not successful. The decrease in the average life(More)
