The scientists induced a form of neuropathic pain in the rodents by severing a nerve near the spinal cord, an injury that throws the animals' nervous systems into disorder and causes the same kind of hypersensitivity to temperature and touch experienced by people with neuropathy.
People think the government would warn them if these widely sold chemicals were known to damage their nervous systems, harm fetuses or give them cancer.
It specifically targets cellular, molecular, and genetic mechanisms that act in vivo to influence stem cell survival, homing/migration, adhesion, differentiation, plasticity, and tumorigenicity in both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
Ephedra, also known as ma huang, stimulates the sympathomimetic and central nervous systems and suppresses appetite.
The treated lab animals had fewer immune cells in their central nervous systems, less myelin damage, and fewer symptoms compared to a control group not given the antibody.
215-218), in their review of the entire spectrum of the pathology of congenital rubella, mention the prolonged persistence of rubella virus in the nervous systems of affected children.
Recently, this class of signalling molecules and receptors has been found to mediate communication between neurons and non-neuronal cells (glia) in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
The invertebrate has only a diffuse net of nerve cells, one of the simplest nervous systems of any animal.
It specifically targets cellular, molecular and genetic mechanisms that act in vivo to influence stem cell survival, homing/migration, adhesion, differentiation, plasticity and tumorigenicity in both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
Under a Canadian MS Society grant, they were studying mice which have defects in myelin production in their nervous systems as a result of a genetic mutation, and attempting to remyelinate by transplanting healthy cells into them.
Hulsebosch's research objectives interests are to investigate the development and plasticity of central and peripheral nervous systems, investigate the responses of the central and peripheral nervous systems to various growth factors, and understand basic molecular principles that provide the proper microenvironment for neural sprouting.
The researchers found a perfect test bed for this idea: Some sensory nerve cells extend fibers, or axons, into both the peripheral and central nervous systems.
