Help at hand for RRMS patients

...this indicates a potential for improved electrical conduction pathways in the brain, supporting the emerging concept that, centrally, COPAXONE? may be acting as a neuroprotective agent,” said Omar Khan, M.D., associate professor of neurology and director of experimental therapeutics/clinical research, Multiple ...

More The Usage More The Growth In The Adult Brain.

... focuses on the dendrites. A dendrite helps in the conduction of electrical stimulation inside the cell. According to the research the dendrite’s growth can be attributed largely to the extent of usage. Their growth is increased when the usage of the neuron is increased. Patient suffering from spinal cord imp...

Shock Wave Therapy Increase The Risk Of Diabetes

...es are placed in a water bath. Water allows easier conduction of the shock waves through the patient’s tissue and precise focus on the kidney stone. “This is a completely new finding,” says Amy Krambeck, M.D., Mayo Clinic urology resident and lead study investigator. “This opens the eyes of the world of urolo...

Dental Amalgam Doesn't Pose Health Risks In Children

...and memory, concentration, coordination, and nerve conduction measures in the Portuguese study. All the children were subjected to annual standardized tests of memory, attention, physical coordination, and velocity of nerve conduction. Neither did the scientists detect a pattern of decline in the test scores o...

Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury with Embryonic Stem Cells

...bers and is critical for maintenance of electrical conduction in the central nervous system. When myelin is stripped away through disease or injury, paralysis can occur. In this study, as in the original one, when the rats suffering from severe spinal cord injury were injected with the oligodendrocytes seven ...

...n influence on the neural activity and permits the conduction of light, heat, radiation and kinetic energy. There are three common types of melanin. Pheomelanin is found in abundance in fair- skinned individuals. This type of melanin generates a pinkish- red color and is generously present in peopl...

Scientists Identify Critical Gene Factor in Heart Development

...They also found that miR-1-2 influences electrical conduction of the heart, which is what regulates the heart beat. Defects in the heart rhythm frequently cause sudden death in humans and are the reason for pacemakers and defibrillators. Loss of miR-1-2 also caused a breakdown of the control of cell division...

Specific Protein is Instrumental in Myelination

...ecovery of neural fibers (demonstrated through the conduction of electrical impulses). Reducing (through genetic manipulation) EGFR signaling decreases myelination and remyelination. Dr. Gallos work also reconfirmed that by enhancing EGFR receptor activity on a specific population of progenitor cells (through...
