• Methods and Materials: One hundred fifty-two NPC patients with no evidence of erosion of the base of the skull and sphenoid, nor extension to the nasal fossa and ethmoid sinuses were randomized to receive standard radiotherapy covering the whole sphenoid sinus or radiotherapy using a modified technique that shields the pituitary and the anterior part of the hypothalamus.

  • Chapter 2 presents a systematic literature review of studies of the association between habitual sleep duration and/or sleep efficiency and markers of neuro-endocrine systems: HPA and ANS. (columbia.edu)
  • IIn this module, we return our attention to the endocrine system and its role in the maintenance of homeostasis. (coursera.org)
  • Then, later in lesson 3, we turn our attention to the simple reflex loop by which the endocrine pancreas regulates metabolism in both the fed and fasted states and the failures of this system (diabetes mellitus). (coursera.org)
  • The things to do this week are to watch the 6 videos, to answer the in-video questions, to read the notes, and to do the two problem sets (endocrine system and fuel homeostasis). (coursera.org)
  • Research reports and other news headlines related to the endocrine system, including its disorders. (dmoztools.net)
  • The vagus nerve represents the main component of the parasympathetic nervous system, which oversees a vast array of crucial bodily functions, including control of mood, immune response, digestion, and heart rate. (frontiersin.org)
  • Glucocorticoids also play an important, although not fully defined, role in several metabolic and behavioral systems, having an impact on body weight and food intake control. (jneurosci.org)
  • We demonstrate that central nervous system (CNS)-delimited interleukin 1β (IL-1β) signaling alone can evoke a catabolic program in muscle, rapidly inducing atrophy. (rupress.org)
  • There is increasing, but largely indirect, evidence pointing to an effect of commensal gut microbiota on the central nervous system (CNS). (pnas.org)
  • In this course, students learn to recognize and to apply the basic concepts that govern integrated body function (as an intact organism) in the body's nine organ systems. (coursera.org)
  • E xhaustion: Long/"chronic" stress eventually exhausts body's response systems. (getrevising.co.uk)
  • ABSTRACT: Mathematical modeling has proven to be valuable in understanding of the complex biological systems dynamics. (physiomeproject.org)
  • One hypothesized explanation for this association has been that sleep loss is a type of chronic stress that induces dysregulation of biological systems that ultimately increase the risk of CVD. (columbia.edu)
