Effects of prenatal nicotine exposure on the morphogenesis of somatosensory
The SOT is a central aspect of the CDP protocol, as it helps the physician objectively evaluate how visual, somatosensory
, and vestibular inputs affect a patient's ability to maintain functional balance, The SOT measures the extent of a patient's sway while standing on a force platform during six conditions:
All primates have a calcarine fissure that enlarges the visual cortex of the medial occipital lobe and a lateral sulcus that expands the cortex devoted to somatosensory
processing (that is, the sense of body position, pain, temperature, and so on--rather than senses such as vision and hearing).
Dennison proposed that the use of some simple specific body movements called Brain Gym[R] can assist the integration and organization of the CNS, thereby enhancing performance in somatosensory
integration, organisation and quality of movement, as well as academic performance (7).
However, workers standing close to roof edges may have to rely mainly on vestibular and somatosensory
inputs to maintain balance.
One problem is that, compared to visual, auditory and somatosensory
function, there is no obvious vocabulary for describing the psychological experience of abnormal vestibular sensations, and this makes diagnosis of vestibular disorders difficult.
When someone else did the tickling there was much more activity in the somatosensory
cortex, the part of the brain that processes tactile sensations.
Phasic discharges in GPi/SNr after passive movement increase and become less specific, indicating an increase in the gain of somatosensory
For instance, The amplitude of an eeg response to a fixed external stimulus on the wrist could act as a biomarker quantifying the number of active cells in the primary somatosensory
In contrast, patterns of empathic distress overlapped with systems in the brain known for mirroring, such as the premotor cortex and the primary and secondary somatosensory
cortices, which help an individual simulate or imagine what another person is feeling or thinking.
Methods: A total of 90 patients with major depressive disorder who met The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders- Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) diagnostic criteria were administered the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS), Beck Depression Inventory, Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90), Somatosensory
Amplification Scale, and Symptom Interpretation Questionnaire.
The visual, vestibular, and somatosensory
senses provide essential information to the central nervous system (CNS).
To test this, I will use two-photon microscopy and calcium indicators to study the effects of callosal input on the somatosensory
cortex of mice that are trained to perform a tactile discrimination task.
cortex is an important component in the acquisition of new motor skills.
