  • In order to understand how each nerve cell integrates into the functional organization of a neural circuit, it is necessary to obtain the complete wiring diagram (connectome) of the circuit by tracing out all the neural processes in the sample. (blogspot.com)
  • Fibres
  • Axons in the connectomes of the left and right interscutularis muscles of a 1-month old animal were colour-coded based on the rank-order of their motor unit sizes (the number of muscle fibres innervated by each axon) in each connectome. (blogspot.com)

  • joints
  • Thyroid problems are associated with a variety of conditions that cause pain to your nerves, muscles, and joints. (healthcentral.com)
  • Hypothyroidism ― a condition of insufficient thyroid hormone ― is linked to a variety of general pain-related muscle and joint symptoms, including stiffness, aches, and pains in joints (known as arthropathy) and fluid retention, leading to swelling and pain in muscles (known as hypothyroid myopathy). (healthcentral.com)
  • In their study, researchers saw that the virus invades tissues in the nervous system, reproductive and urinary tracts, lymph nodes, muscles and joints. (hon.ch)
  • The painful condition that is only seen in 3-6% of the general population and affects the muscles and joints is commonly known as fibromyalgia. (medicinesnaturally.com)
  • There are many muscles attached to the radius that aid in movement of the elbow, wrist, and finger joints. (healthline.com)
  • elicit
  • With Ringer-soaked preparations from frogs kept at 14-18°C for some days before use the minimum interval at which two shocks applied to the nerve could elicit a summated muscular response was about 20% longer than the absolute refractory period of the nerve. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • muscular
  • Some nerve and muscle disorders that start early in life (before age 25), like some forms of muscular dystrophy, can run in families. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Individuals at least 4 weeks old with childhood-onset muscular and nerve disorders, including those who have a later onset of a disorder that typically has childhood onset. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Affected and unaffected family members of the individuals with muscular and nerve disorders. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • cells
  • We examined the effect of Con A on nerve-induced receptor accumulation and on the mobility of ACh receptors in cultured Xenopus muscle cells. (jneurosci.org)
  • rats
  • Curiously, the connectome of the mouse interscutularis - a muscle also found in dogs, rats, and other mammals that readily move their ears - reveals that some of its neurons are as much as 25 percent longer than is necessary. (blogspot.com)
  • weakness
  • Hyperthyroid myopathy causes weakness in the muscles and causes your muscles to easily fatigue, making it difficult to climb stairs, hold or grip objects, or reach your arms above the head. (healthcentral.com)
  • Such changes give muscle weakness and have been previously found only in genetic muscle diseases. (eurekalert.org)
  • genetic
  • Researchers want to learn more about genetic nerve and muscle disorders that start in childhood by studying affected people and their family members, as well as healthy volunteers. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • fatigue
  • You would have to have a phrenic nerve eval, but it is unlikely you are a candidate for a pacer, since your nerve seems to be working fine, other than fatigue. (rutgers.edu)

  • Applying pressure on muscle knots can trigger pain in the neck, shoulder or arm. (hubpages.com)
  • repetitive
  • A stretched tendon will eventually heal on its own in few weeks, but if you have myofascial pain with muscle knots you might need to change the way how you sit or quit some repetitive exercise, for example. (hubpages.com)
  • Myofascial pain syndrome includes pain and palpable muscle knots in the upper back caused by bad posture during sitting or repetitive movements with arms (assembly workers) or repetitive hard exercise. (hubpages.com)
  • Serratus anterior pain syndrome is chronic pain arising from the muscles on one or both sides of the chest (below the armpits) and around the shoulder blades caused by repetitive sprints, lifting heavy objects sideways or chronic coughing. (hubpages.com)
  • Biology
  • "We had expected to find a great degree of neural symmetry in the same mouse's two interscutularis muscles, but this isn't even close to true," says Jeff W. Lichtman , professor of molecular and cellular biology in Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences. (blogspot.com)
