  • organs
  • 3 , 4 These experiments initiated the concept of state-specific "sympathetic signatures" in that the pattern of SNA to various organs under one condition, such as hypoglycemia, was different than that observed under another condition, such as hemorrhage. (ahajournals.org)
  • While the researchers expected to find that there was no one common signal controlling the maintenance of a functional balance in organs and glands, they were surprised that they could prove it by showing that sympathetic nerve cells are heterogeneous and specialized for different functions and that the organs they control are involved in their specialization.

  • cord
  • Also known as the ganglionic cord or sympathetic chain, these structures run from the skull to the tailbone and carry a variety of signals to and from the viscera of the body. (wisegeek.com)
  • malignant
  • Malignant pheochromocytoma and sympathetic paraganglioma affect only about 100-200 people per year in the United States, but those who do develop these neuroendocrine cancers have only a 60% 5-year overall survival rate and limited options for effective treatment. (mdanderson.org)
  • Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center are conducting clinical trials of new treatments and studying the survival benefits of surgery to improve outcomes for patients with malignant pheochromocytoma and sympathetic paraganglioma. (mdanderson.org)
  • mainly
  • The witchcraft mainly relies on ' sympathetic magic ,' on perforating a clay image of an enemy with needles and so forth. (dictionary.com)
  • We assessed autonomic function from spectral powers of RRI and BP in the mainly sympathetic low- (LF, 0.04-0.15 Hz) and parasympathetic high-frequencies (HF, 0.15-0.5 Hz), and calculated the RRI-LF/HF-ratio as index of sympathovagal balance. (biomedsearch.com)
  • stress
  • This article reviews scientific evidence suggesting that, in FM, distress becomes pain through malfunction of the sympathetic component of the stress response system. (hindawi.com)

  • disease
  • In contrast, the emerging concept is that SNA is differentially regulated in a region/organ-specific manner, such that disease-specific sympathetic signatures exist. (ahajournals.org)
  • consists
  • We've shown that the sympathetic system consists of many types of neuron that regulate specific functions in the body," says the study's lead author Alessandro Furlan at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics. (medindia.net)
  • occurs
  • Sympathetic vomiting occurs when the sight, sound or smell of a person vomiting causes others to become nauseated and throw up. (wisegeek.com)
  • level
  • Saino et al 1 and Lyons et al 2 published provocative findings regarding the vascular level interaction of the sympathetic and renin-angiotensin systems. (ahajournals.org)
  • important
  • It would be important, however, to device a way to see whether this is the case also in vivo and what is the relative importance of this mechanism in the overall positive feed-back interaction between the sympathetic and the renin-angiotensin systems. (ahajournals.org)
  • subject
  • If you fear you may be subject to sympathetic vomiting, get out of the room or area if someone is vomiting or appears to be getting sick. (wisegeek.com)
