In order to evaluate the roles of the vestibular system in controlling arterial pressure (AP) during exposure to a short period of microgravity (microG), the AP was measured in conscious free-moving rats having intact vestibular systems and those having vestibular lesions (FM-Intact and FM-VL groups, respectively). During free drop-induced microG, the AP(More)
To investigate the mechanism of arterial pressure (AP) regulation during hypergravity, the AP response to gravitational force was examined in conscious rats and the AP was found to increase, depending on the degree of gravity load induced by centrifugation. At 20 s after application of 2, 3, or 5 G, the AP increased by 9+/-2, 20+/-3, or 24+/-3 mm Hg,(More)
In order to define the sequence of forebrain activation involved in osmoregulation, central activation in response to intracerebroventricular injection of NaCl solution (10 microl of 0.15, 0.5, or 1.5 M) was detected using manganese-contrasted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in anesthetized rats. Changes in renal sympathetic nerve activity (RNA) were also(More)
There has been recent interest in the concept of connecting a computer to the brain to control brain functions. However, there are challenges that must be overcome in developing such a computer-brain interface, including a selection of nucleus that is stimulated, and an implantable electrode and electrical stimulator. Another important issue is the(More)
Pulmonary thromboembolism induced by deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is known as economy-class syndrome, is one of sudden death in psychiatric patients under physical restraint. (1) A decrease in venous blood flow, (2) damage to vessel walls, and (3) the enhancement of blood clotting are the major risk factors for DVT (Virchow triad). It has been(More)
