What's more, these glial cells were the ones that specifically build the scaffolding for the motor neurons
that were born from the same stem cells and ultimately control leg movement.
Supratentorial ischemic stroke: More than an upper motor neuron
Brooks BR, Miller RG, Swash M, Munsat TL, World Federation of Neurology Research Group on Motor Neuron
Diseases (2000) El Escorial revised: revised criteria for the diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
He said that they then built a survival gene into them, which helps the stem-cell motor neurons
to stay alive when they are transplanted inside the injured nerve and allows them to grow to connect to muscle.
ALS affects motor neurons
arising from the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord.
Ultimately, what crystallized from these experiments was a code--an organized relationship between Hox proteins, their chromosomal organization, and the differentiation and connectivity of motor neuron
Idiopathic MND is sometimes used to describe all primary degenerative lower motor neuron
and all upper motor neuron
disorders (Swash, 2000).
ALS is a progressive disease that attacks specialized nerve cells called motor neurons
, which control the movement of voluntary muscles.
Recent laboratory-based research performed at our institution has supported the hypothesis that women with complete spinal cord injuries and upper motor neuron
injuries affecting the sacral spinal segments will maintain the capacity for reflex lubrication while losing the capacity for psychogenic lubrication (Sipski and Alexander, 1995a).
sup], An electromyography (EMG) examination can be used to detect subclinical involvement of lower motor neurons
(LMNs), which is diagnostically most useful in the presence of upper motor neuron
(UMN) signs within the same territory.
INTRODUCTION: Location of motor neuron
somata supplying forelimb muscles have been studied by retrograde cell degeneration technique ,,,, and  by electrophysiological method  and by retrograde axonal transport of horse radish peroxidase (HRP) ,,, and  These studies have shown the locations of motor neuron
somata of major forelimb nerves in cervical enlargement of spinal cord.
ALS is a motor neuron
disease characterized by a non-cell autonomous neurodegeneration process, which involves neighbouring cells via an unknown mechanism.
London, May 11 (ANI): A new study has found that people with longer ring fingers relative to the index finger are much more likely to have motor neuron
The genetic defects identified in FALS have lead to the development of some useful animal models of the disease, but more models are needed to expand research on the abnormal biology of the affected motor neuron
and nonneuronal cells, on nervous system response to endogenous and environmental toxins and toxicants, and on identification of metabolic, endocrine, and immunological abnormalities.
Vagal motor neuron
cell bodies are located in the brainstem in the ambiguous nucleus and in the retrofacial nucleus.
