  • Disease
  • If TPP has not been diagnosed and the patient has a surgical procedure during general or regional anesthesia, symptoms of the disease may be confused with other adverse perioperative events such as delayed recovery from neuromuscular paralysis. (scribd.com)
  • Because many of the symptoms of Lyme disease involve the nervous system, it was speculated that the spirochete produced a toxin that disrupted normal nerve function. (samento.com.ec)
  • A disease in which antibodies made by a person's immune system prevent certain nerve - muscle interactions. (nih.gov)
  • However, peripheral nerves are particularly resistant to the effects of hypoglycemia and peripheral neuropathy has not been associated with any other disease that results in hypoglycemia. (vin.com)
  • Disorder
  • Certain muscles such as those that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, chewing , talking, and swallowing are often, but not always, involved in the disorder. (nih.gov)
  • An idiopathic inflammatory disorder primarily involving both axons and myelin of ventral nerve roots occurs in dogs, and is probably one of the most common polyneuropathies in this species. (vin.com)
  • biopsies
  • In addition to the idiopathic inflammatory myopathies, other entities may be associated with inflammation in muscle biopsies such as sarcoidosis, granulomatous myositis, focal myositis, orbital myositis, macrophagic myofasciitis (a myositis associated with aluminum deposition), some muscular dystrophies, viral myositis, and statin myopathy.

  • Depending on your symptoms, your physician may recommend neuromuscular ultrasound, biopsies, or genetic testing. (aanem.org)
  • roots
  • Demyelination is thought to be most severe in the ventral nerve roots in dogs, with minimal myelin loss in the major nerve trunks. (vin.com)
  • spasms
  • Cicada is said to prevent or reduce muscle spasms by reducing the tension of the striated muscles. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Tetanus causes convulsive muscle spasms and rigidity that can lead to respiratory paralysis and death. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Trismus is often followed by stiffness of the neck and other muscles throughout the body as well as uncontrollable spasms. (encyclopedia.com)
  • People with localized tetanus experience pain and tingling only at the wound site and spasms in nearby muscles. (encyclopedia.com)
  • nervous system
  • While the nervous system is widely recognized for its role in coordination, its role in determining the performance characteristics of aged skeletal muscle has largely been understudied. (frontiersin.org)

  • travels
  • As an action potential (nerve impulse) travels down an axon there is a change in polarity across the membrane of the axon. (wikipedia.org)
  • axon
  • A typical nerve cell consists of a long filament or axon, the terminal end of which lies in close proximity to another nerve cell. (samento.com.ec)
  • Cells
  • 2 They all contain zinc and perform the same proteolytic function, namely, cleaving the chemical (covalent) bond between two specific amino acids in a particular protein found in nerve cells. (samento.com.ec)
  • Action potentials occur in several types of animal cells , called excitable cells , which include neurons , muscle cells , endocrine cells, and in some plant cells . (wikipedia.org)
  • The researchers created what they called an "artificial neuromuscular junction" composed of muscle cells and a nano-sized polymer placed on a biological scaffold. (eurekalert.org)
  • It occurs when normal communication between the nerve and muscle is interrupted at the neuromuscular junction-the place where nerve cells connect with the muscles they control. (nih.gov)
  • neck
  • Relaxation begins in the muscles of the toes, ears , and eyes and progresses to the muscles of the neck and limbs and, finally, to the muscles involved in respiration. (britannica.com)
  • The muscles that control breathing and neck and limb movements may also be affected. (nih.gov)
  • degrees
  • Unfortunately, conventional neuroprosthetic techniques are limited by a myriad of factors that include, but are not limited to, a lack of characterization of non-linear input/output system dynamics, mechanical coupling, limited number of degrees of freedom, high power consumption, large device size, and rapid onset of muscle fatigue.

  • brain
  • The identification of new migraine-associated genes, the visualisation of brain regions that are activated at the earliest stages of a migraine attack, a greater appreciation of the potential role of the cervical nerves, and the recognition of the crucial role for neuropeptides are among the advances that have led to novel targets for migraine therapy.
