Electrical stimulation as a therapeutic option to improve eyelid function in chronic facial nerve disorders. (1/564)

PURPOSE: To establish whether it is possible to improve orbicularis oculi muscle function in the eyelids of patients with a chronic seventh cranial nerve palsy by using transcutaneous electrical stimulation to the point at which electrical stimulation induces a functional blink. METHODS: Ten subjects (one woman, nine men) aged 36 to 76 with chronic, moderate to severe facial nerve palsy were recruited into the study. Voluntary and spontaneous eyelid movements were assessed, using an optical measuring system, before, during, and after a 3-month treatment period. Voluntary and spontaneous lid velocities were also measured and compared with eyelid kinematic data in normal subjects (12 women, 18 men; age range, 22-56 years). RESULTS: Therapeutic electrical stimulation applied over 3 months produced improvement in eyelid movement (>2 mm) in 8 of 10 patients during voluntary eyelid closure. However, there was no significant improvement recorded in spontaneous blink amplitudes or peak downward-phase velocity of the upper eyelid. This regimen of stimulation failed to recover function well enough that a functional blink could be induced in the paretic eyelid by electrical stimulation. CONCLUSIONS: Electrical stimulation using transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators units can improve voluntary eye closure, apparently because of a reduction in stiffness of eyelid mechanics, rather than an improvement of muscle function. Investigation of alternative stimulation regimens is warranted.  (+info)

Discharge profiles of abducens, accessory abducens, and orbicularis oculi motoneurons during reflex and conditioned blinks in alert cats. (2/564)

The discharge profiles of identified abducens, accessory abducens, and orbicularis oculi motoneurons have been recorded extra- and intracellularly in alert behaving cats during spontaneous, reflexively evoked, and classically conditioned eyelid responses. The movement of the upper lid and the electromyographic activity of the orbicularis oculi muscle also were recorded. Animals were conditioned by short, weak air puffs or 350-ms tones as conditioned stimuli (CS) and long, strong air puffs as unconditioned stimulus (US) using both trace and delayed conditioning paradigms. Motoneurons were identified by antidromic activation from their respective cranial nerves. Orbicularis oculi and accessory abducens motoneurons fired an early, double burst of action potentials (at 4-6 and 10-16 ms) in response to air puffs or to the electrical stimulation of the supraorbital nerve. Orbicularis oculi, but not accessory abducens, motoneurons fired in response to flash and tone presentations. Only 10-15% of recorded abducens motoneurons fired a late, weak burst after air puff, supraorbital nerve, and flash stimulations. Spontaneous fasciculations of the orbicularis oculi muscle and the activity of single orbicularis oculi motoneurons that generated them also were recorded. The activation of orbicularis oculi motoneurons during the acquisition of classically conditioned eyelid responses happened in a gradual, sequential manner. Initially, some putative excitatory synaptic potentials were observed in the time window corresponding to the CS-US interval; by the second to the fourth conditioning session, some isolated action potentials appeared that increased in number until some small movements were noticed in eyelid position traces. No accessory abducens motoneuron fired and no abducens motoneuron modified their discharge rate for conditioned eyelid responses. The firing of orbicularis oculi motoneurons was related linearly to lid velocity during reflex blinks but to lid position during conditioned responses, a fact indicating the different neural origin and coding of both types of motor commands. The power spectra of both reflex and conditioned lid responses showed a dominant peak at approximately 20 Hz. The wavy appearance of both reflex and conditioned eyelid responses was clearly the result of the high phasic activity of orbicularis oculi motor units. Orbicularis oculi motoneuron membrane potentials oscillated at approximately 20 Hz after supraorbital nerve stimulation and during other reflex and conditioned eyelid movements. The oscillation seemed to be the result of both intrinsic (spike afterhyperpolarization lasting approximately 50 ms, and late depolarizations) and extrinsic properties of the motoneuronal pool and of the circuits involved in eye blinks.  (+info)

HPLC analysis of closed, open, and reflex eye tear proteins. (3/564)

Changes in the closed, open and reflex eye tear proteins of normal subjects were compared and analysed. Tear proteins were resolved by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) utilising both gel filtration (P-300 SW) and reverse-phase (C-18) columns and the HPLC fractions were further analysed by sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) under reducing and non-reducing conditions. The protein composition of the closed-eye tear was significantly different from that of the open and reflex-eye tear. Secretory IgA (sIgA) was the predominant protein in closed eye tears constituting 49% of the total protein compared to 11% in reflex tears, whereas lysozyme was the predominant protein (53%) in reflex tears. Levels of lactoferrin, lipocalin and lysozyme were relatively constant in both open and reflex tears. HPLC profiles of the closed-eye tears, upon continuous stimulation of lacrimal glands indicated that sIgA was significantly reduced whereas lactoferrin, lipocalin, and lysozyme were significantly increased. These results indicate that the tear composition upon waking attains that of the open eye within 4 to 5 minutes, and upon continuous stimulation this reflects the reflex-eye tear composition. It also indicates that mechanisms responsible for changes in concentration of constitutive and regulated tear protein with stimulus can be studied successfully using non-invasive methods to collect human tears.  (+info)

Midazolam effects on prepulse inhibition of the acoustic blink reflex. (4/564)

AIMS: The eye-blink response following sudden acoustic noise bursts is part of the startle reflex. The magnitude of the startle response can be attenuated by presentation of a weak stimulus before the 'startle-eliciting' stimulus (prepulse inhibition, PPI). PPI is a stable finding in awake humans but may be altered by anaesthetic drugs. We investigated whether the application of benzodiazepines altered the magnitude of PPI in healthy male volunteers. METHODS: In an open-label noncontrolled investigation, the effect of the benzodiazepine agonist midazolam on PPI was assessed in the absence and presence of the antagonist flumazenil. After an initial control period of 60 min three consecutive periods, each of 60 min, with progressively increasing concentrations of midazolam were studied (0. 02, 0.06, 0.14 mg kg-1 h-1 ). A final 60 min period during the administration of flumazenil (0.004 mg kg-1 h-1 ) and while the agonist was still present was also studied. Drug was administered intravenuously as a combination of bolus, 50% of total dose and continuous infusion over the 60 min period. Electromyographic (EMG) response of the right orbicularis oculi muscle was used to assess the startle response to noise bursts of 50 ms duration (95 dB(A)). Noise bursts were randomly preceded by nonstartling prepulses (800 Hz sinus, 50 ms duration, 65 dB(A), prepulse to noise interval 120 ms). The magnitude of PPI was calculated by dividing the EMG response to nonprepulsed stimuli by the response to prepulsed stimuli for each individual and period. Eleven subjects participated in the study, two of them were excluded from the statistical analysis because startle responses could not be reliably elicited (final sample size n=9). RESULTS: The magnitude of PPI was inversely related to the concentration of midazolam. This relationship was described by a sigmoidal Emax model, giving an Emax of 0.65+/-0.13, an ED50 of 33.9+/-10.9 ng ml-1 and gamma of 3.5+/-1.0. During infusion of flumazenil and in the presence of midazolam, the magnitude of PPI increased by 0.11 (95% CI, 0-0.22, P+info)

Effects of paired and unpaired eye-blink conditioning on Purkinje cell morphology. (5/564)

This experiment addressed (1) the importance of conjunctive stimulus presentation for morphological plasticity of cerebellar Purkinje cells and inhibitory interneurons and (2) whether plasticity is restricted to the spiny branches of Purkinje cells, which receive parallel fiber input. These issues were investigated in naive rabbits and in rabbits that received paired or unpaired presentations of the conditioned stimulus (CS) and unconditioned stimulus (US). To direct CS input to the cerebellar cortex, pontine stimulation served as the CS. Air puffs to the cornea served as the US. Paired condition rabbits received pontine stimulation for 350 msec paired with a coterminating 100-msec air puff. Unpaired condition rabbits received the same stimuli in a pseudorandom order at 1- to 32-sec intervals. Rabbits were trained for a mean of 12 days. Naive rabbits received no treatment. In Golgi-stained Purkinje neurons in lobule HVI, total dendritic length, main branch length, total spiny branch length, and number of spiny branch arbors were all greater in the naive group than in the paired and unpaired groups, which did not differ. No differences were found between the hemispheres ipsilateral and contralateral to the trained eye. The dendritic length and number of branches for inhibitory interneurons did not differ across groups. The Purkinje cell morphological changes detected with these methods do not appear to be uniquely related to the conjunctive activation of the CS and US in the paired condition.  (+info)

Learning in Parkinson's disease: eyeblink conditioning, declarative learning, and procedural learning. (6/564)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the degree of learning ability in Parkinson's disease. METHODS: Three different learning tasks: eyeblink classical conditioning with delay and trace paradigms, the California verbal learning test (CVLT), and a serial reaction time task (SRTT) were studied in patients with Parkinson's disease and normal (control) subjects. RESULTS: In the eyeblink conditioning tasks, both patients and normal subjects showed significant learning effects without between group differences. In the CVLT, patients remembered significantly fewer words than normal subjects in both short term and long term cued recall tasks. In the SRTT, normal subjects had significantly reduced response time and error rates across blocks of repeated sequence trials, whereas patients had significantly reduced error, but not response time rates. CONCLUSION: Impairment of nigrostriatal pathways selectively affects performance in complex learning tasks that are competitive and require alertness such as the SRTT, but not in simple learning procedures such as eyeblink conditioning.  (+info)

New treatment of dry eye: the effect of calcium ointment through eyelid skin delivery. (7/564)

AIM: To demonstrate the efficacy of a petrolatum based calcium ointment applied to the lower lid skin in the management of dry eye. METHODS: In a controlled double masked study, the effects of water free petrolatum ointment containing calcium carbonate (10% w/w) on tear functional factors and ocular surface vital staining in dry eye patients were observed. Petrolatum without calcium carbonate served as control. Patients were instructed to place ointment to the lower lid skin twice a day. Evaluation of subjective complaints, fluorescein and rose bengal staining patterns, blink rate, tear evaporation and tear break up time (BUT) were performed before and 3 months after treatment. In order to demonstrate the movement of petrolatum from the skin to the tear film, petrolatum containing 1% sodium fluorescein was placed on the lower lid of four healthy volunteers, and the concentration of fluorescein in the tear film was followed up to 6 hours using an anterior fluorometer. RESULTS: Subjective symptoms significantly improved in both the calcium group (p=0.001) and control (p=0.012), while only the calcium group demonstrated a significant improvement in fluorescein (p=0.043), rose bengal (p=0.021) scores, and blink rate (p=0.004). Tear evaporation also significantly decreased in both the calcium group (p=0.0004) and control (0.043). BUT did not improve in either group. CONCLUSION: Petrolatum based calcium ointment significantly improved symptoms, tear dynamics, and ocular surface staining in dry eye patients. However, some of the therapeutic effects may be due to lipids in the petrolatum vehicle. Petrolatum applied to the lower lid skin is an effective drug delivery system for slowly releasing drugs to the ocular surface.  (+info)

Impaired eye-blink conditioning in waggler, a mutant mouse with cerebellar BDNF deficiency. (8/564)

In addition to their trophic functions, neurotrophins are also implicated in synaptic modulation and learning and memory. Although gene knockout techniques have been used widely in studying the roles of neurotrophins at molecular and cellular levels, behavioral studies using neurotrophin knockouts are limited by the early-onset lethality and various sensory deficits associated with the gene knockout mice. In the present study, we found that in a spontaneous mutant mouse, waggler, the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) was selectively absent in the cerebellar granule cells. The cytoarchitecture of the waggler cerebellum appeared to be normal at the light microscope level. The mutant mice exhibited no sensory deficits to auditory stimuli or heat-induced pain. However, they were massively impaired in classic eye-blink conditioning. These results suggest that BDNF may have a role in normal cerebellar neuronal function, which, in turn, is essential for classic eye-blink conditioning.  (+info)

Another interesting way to formally test the hypodopaminergic state hypothesis of ADHD is by examining the frequency of spontaneous eye blinks. Early work in non-human primates demonstrated that dopamine-stimulating medications produce increases in blink rate whereas dopamine-inhibiting medications produce decreases in blink rate (see Groen et al., 2015). Further, patients with PD have two times lower blink rates than healthy individuals (Deuschl & Goddemeier, 1998). Sometimes they even suffer from medical eye problems because their eyes are no longer sufficiently protected from dehydration and filth.Spontaneous blink rate can thus be regarded as a reliable marker of the integrity of the dopamine system in the brain. We recently examined spontaneous eye blink rates in children with ADHD (Groen et al., 2015) and in contrast to the hypodopaminergic state hypothesis we found no reductions; neither did previous studies. Therefore, if it exists, the hypodopaminergic state in ADHD thus is much less ...
Eye blink rate, as well as eyelid twitches, have been used as an indicator of stress in humans but has not been examined in horses until now.
You can easily protect your eyes from eye strain, irritation and blink rate if youre not able to limit your digital device use.
In this paper, we present evidence for a temporal relationship between eye blinks and smile dynamics (smile onset and offset). Smiles and blinks occur with high frequency during social interaction, yet little is known about their temporal integration. To explore the temporal relationship between them, we used an Active Appearance Models algorithm to detect eye blinks in video sequences that contained manually FACS-coded spontaneous smiles (AU 12). We then computed the temporal distance between blinks and smile onsets and offsets. Our data shows that eye blinks are correlated with the end of the smile and occur close to the offset, but before the lip corners stop moving downwards. Furthermore, a marginally significant effect suggests that eye blinks are suppressed (less frequent) before smile onset. For computer-generated characters, this model of the timing of blinks relative to smiles may be useful in creating compelling facial animations ...
Previous researchers have reported that the ocular discomfort experienced by computer users may be associated with an increase in the percentage of incomplete blinks, rather than with an actual reduction in SEBR.17,18 Therefore, the advantage offered by the expanded display in terms of SEBR may not result in an actual reduction in ocular discomfort, particularly when considering the percentage of incomplete blinks observed with this reading condition. In effect, in contrast with hard-copy reading, reading in electronic format led to an increase in the percentage of incomplete blinks. In addition, this difference was particularly significant when comparing the expanded 330% display (13.5% of incomplete blinks) and the tablet (14.5% of incomplete blinks) with all hard-copy texts (from 0 to 5% of incomplete blinks), as well as with electronic reading at 100% (9% of incomplete blinks). These findings are in agreement with a recent investigation,17 although the difference in incomplete blinks between ...
List of 9 disease causes of Absent corneal reflex, patient stories, diagnostic guides. Diagnostic checklist, medical tests, doctor questions, and related signs or symptoms for Absent corneal reflex.
The corneal reflex, also known as the blink reflex, is an involuntary blinking of the eyelids elicited by stimulation of the cornea (such as by touching or by a foreign body), though could result from any peripheral stimulus. Stimulation should elicit both a direct and consensual response (response of the opposite eye). The reflex occurs at a rapid rate of 0.1 seconds. The purpose of this reflex is to protect the eyes from foreign bodies and bright lights (the latter known as the optical reflex). The blink reflex also occurs when sounds greater than 40-60 dB are made. The reflex is mediated by: the nasociliary branch of the ophthalmic branch (V1) of the 5th cranial nerve (trigeminal nerve) sensing the stimulus on the cornea only (afferent fiber). the temporal and zygomatic branches of the 7th cranial nerve (Facial nerve) initiating the motor response (efferent fiber). the centre (nucleus) in the pons of brain stem. Use of contact lenses may diminish or abolish the testing of this reflex. The ...

Piggy backing in my left is giving me tolerable vision at the moment but my eyes do get very dry, probably though the reduced oxygen levels as a result of two sets of lens, coupled with a poor tear production. Im told that you need to keep your blink rate up as high as possible to help overcome this but using a computer makes your blink rate lower as you tend to stare at the screen. So very regular breaks away from the screen are essential. And I can feel my lenses all the time too - they dont hurt but are quite uncomfortable and irritating at times.

Researched eye movements:. The eye allows light to enter since it is translucent. It has lids that open and close, becoming a barrier at times, but sometimes clear as day. This motion of barrier is sometimes slow, sometimes fast, frequent and even random. The micro-movement extends to how the pupil dilates and contract, something we can feel but not see. There could be controlled and uncontrolled actions, how an eye blink to wash away dust, and how an eye blink because it senses an imminent threat of fight or flight.. The radial composition references to the way the eyes function, with a circular system that funnels light into the iris that allows the eyes to work. There is a strong sense of direction into the center that brings out that idea. The sound of shutter also reminds me of the blinking of eyelids. The central twirl of paper reminds me of the decentralised veins of the iris. The eye is also a translucent organ that uses light to function, hence, the design is filled with holes to allow ...
In a previous study, we have shown that salt-sensitive normotensive subjects display an increased pressor and heart rate response to mental stress. In the present study, we extend these findings by demonstrating that these subjects also display an enhanced affective modulation of the startle-induced blink responses during presentation of standardized pictures selected from the IAPS.22 Thus, the present study is the first to demonstrate that central factors, which are involved in affective modulation, may play a role in the blood pressure response to changes in dietary salt intake and perhaps contribute to the development of hypertension in salt-sensitive normotensive individuals.. The modulation of startle-induced blink reactions during appetitive and aversive affective states is believed to reflect the modulating influence of the amygdaloid body on emotional reflex autonomic and somatomotor functions.27,28 Projections of the central nucleus of the amygdala to autonomic circulatory centers in ...
This variety of brief experiences immediately following cardiac arrest definitely point to defining death more robustly than the perceptible conditions of the circulatory system. After all, if swimmers can train themselves to hold their breath for five minutes (record is 22 minutes by Stig Severinsen), and beheaded people can still blink responses to questions, its fairly obvious that oxygenated blood and cellular activity dont altogether cease because the heart/lungs have stopped (systemic failure is a failure of function, not a complete description of total cell death). I would certainly expect passive systems like hearing and dreaming to continue for minutes after someone has been declared dead. As far as these accounts of experiences hinting at a consciousness independent of the body, its problematic to say the least when these people recount factually incorrect details of their hospital room they explored in their out-of-body experience... or recount religious experiences incompatible ...
Brains are pattern machines. (Hawkins and Blakeslee, 2004) These patterns make blink moments possible. But, if you are a marketer looking to capitalize on a blink phenomenon, be aware the brain cannot command itself to go into think blink mode. Instead, it involuntarily retrieves from memory the feelings that drive blink encounters. Our brain does not remember exactly what it sees, hears or feels. We dont remember or recall things with complete fidelity-not because the cortex and its neurons are sloppy or error-prone, but because the brain remembers the important relationships in the world, independent of details. (Hawkins, 2004). The relationships we feel are important in our world are stored as images in our unconscious mind and are linked directly to our emotions. In fact, we dont really think in words, but more in pictures or images. The brain is elegantly designed to store whole concepts within an image. We store memories as images because they are more meaningful and easier to access ...

In well-trained animals, infusion of the GABA-B agonist baclofen into the cerebellar interpositus nucleus and overlying cortex abolished the conditioned response (CR) with no effect on the unconditioned response (UR) with doses at or above 5.0 mM. Infusion of the GABA-B antagonist CGP 5584-5A alone had no effect on the CR or UR. However, administration of 5 mM baclofen soon after infusion of CGP 5584-5A (15 min) resulted in no reduction of percent CR and only partial reduction of CR amplitude. Naive animals given interpositus infusions of baclofen during training showed no learning, yet learned normally in postinfusion training. The distribution of (radiolabelled) baclofen was localized and remained within the cerebellum. The results presented here are consistent with a growing body of literature supporting the hypothesis that the memory trace for eyeblink conditioning is formed and stored in the cerebellum and may involve GABAergic mechanisms.
A pair of studies examined how cortical intracerebellar stimulation (ICS) affects eyeblink conditioning in the rabbit. Rabbits were implanted with chronic bipolar stimulating electrodes in the cell body layers of cerebellar lobule H-VI. Brief (40 ms) trains of intracranial stimulation (100 Hz, 250 microA) were delivered during training trials [forward pairings of a tone-conditioned stimulus (CS) with an air puff unconditioned stimulus (US)]. In Experiment 1, the onset of ICS varied randomly within sessions. US-onset-coincident ICS proved detrimental to the maintenance of conditioning [measured as the percentage of trials on which conditioned responses (CRs) were made] compared to ICS that ended 60 ms before US onset. Based on these findings, a second experiment compared a group trained with ICS consistently delivered at US onset to groups trained with ICS consistently delivered either at CS onset or between the two stimuli, as well as to unstimulated control subjects. Animals receiving CS- or US
The idea that memory is encoded by means of synaptic growth is not new. However, this idea has been difficult to demonstrate in the mammalian brain because of both the complexity of mammalian behavior and the neural circuitry by which it is supported. Here we examine how eyeblink classical conditioning affects synapse number within the cerebellum; the brain region essential for long-term retention of the conditioned response. Results showed eyeblink-conditioned rats to have significantly more synapses per neuron within the cerebellar interpositus nucleus than both explicitly unpaired and untrained controls. Further analysis showed that the increase was caused by the addition of excitatory rather than inhibitory synapses. Thus, development of the conditioned eyeblink response is associated with a strengthening of inputs from precerebellar nuclei rather than from cerebellar cortex.

There is a lot of evidence for the impact of acute glucocorticoid treatment on hippocampus-dependent explicit learning and memory (memory for facts and events). But there have been few studies, investigating the effect of glucocorticoids on implicit learning and memory. rnWe conducted three studies with different methodology to investigate the effect of glucocorticoids on different forms of implicit learning. rnIn Study 1, we investigated the effect of cortisol depletion on short-term habituation in 49 healthy subjects. 25 participants received oral metyrapone (1500 mg) to suppress endogenous cortisol production, while 24 controls received oral placebo. Eye blink electromyogram (EMG) responses to 105 dB acoustic startle stimuli were assessed. Effective endogenous cortisol suppression had no effect on short-term habituation of the startle reflex, but startle eye blink responses were significantly increased in the metyrapone group. The latter findings are in line with previous human studies, which ...

Eyeblink is a complex solution to dry eye syndrome. Eyeblink measures your blink rate using webcam. Eyeblink trains you to blink more using interactive reminder, which rolls out of the upper right corner of the screen and go away after you blink. Eyestrain, dryness, itchiness, burning, red eyes or blurred vision are common symptoms of dry eye syndrome. Healthy human blinks 10 to 15 times per minute. In front of the computer screen 70% of users, blink up to 60% less. One of the main reason ...
Essential blepharospasm is a debilitating disorder of progressive involuntary spasms of the eyelid muscles. Other muscles in the face or neck may be involved as well. Terms that sometimes are used in the description of this problem include dystonia (impaired or disordered muscle tone) and dyskinesia (a defect in voluntary movement). The onset of blepharospasm is typically in the fifth to sixth decade and is more common in women than in men. Although the cause of essential blepharospasm is incompletely understood, it is thought to be a result of miscommunication in the area(s) of the brain responsible for control of the involved muscles.. The onset of essential blepharospasm usually is heralded by an increase in blinking or squinting with progression toward repetitive forceful closure and difficulty opening the eyelids. Blepharospasm is often made worse by stress, fatigue, bright lights, watching television or driving, and social interactions. Functional blindness in the presence of an ...
Trace eyeblink conditioning is useful for studying the interaction of multiple brain areas in learning and memory. The goal of the current work was to determine whether trace eyeblink conditioning could be established in a mouse model in the absence of elicited startle responses and the brain circuitry that supports this learning. We show here that mice can acquire trace conditioned responses (tCRs) devoid of startle while head-restrained and permitted to freely run on a wheel. Most mice (75%) could learn with a trace interval of 250 ms. Because tCRs were not contaminated with startle-associated components, we were able to document the development and timing of tCRs in mice, as well as their long-term retention (at 7 and 14 days) and flexible expression (extinction and reacquisition). To identify the circuitry involved we made restricted lesions of the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and found that learning was prevented. Furthermore, inactivation of the cerebellum with muscimol completely ...

My research focuses upon delineating processes of developmental change, creating explanatory models of how biological, behavioral, and social-cultural factors act together in development, and detailing how developing organisms own modes of functioning shape their subsequent paths of development. I address these issues mainly through the study of how human newborns become transformed into three-year-olds who have mastered several of the basic forms of cooperative action valued within their culture (e.g., social games, verbal conversations, cooperative problem-solving). Four interrelated lines of inquiry are ongoing. The first relates differences among very-prematurely-born infants in early central nervous system development to their paths of social-communicative development over the first two years of life. The second uses classical eyeblink conditioning paradigms to better characterize the behavioral differences between preterm and full-term infants in terms of cognitive, attentional, and ...

The researchers found that patients showed a significantly reduced number of conditioned eyeblink responses before alcohol administration versus controls.
We have studied a simple form of motor learning in the human brain so as to isolate activity related to motor learning and the prediction of sensory events. Whole-brain, event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to record activity during classical discriminative delay eyeblink conditioning. Auditory conditioned stimulus (CS+) trials were presented either with a corneal airpuff unconditioned stimulus (US, paired), or without a US (unpaired). Auditory CS- trials were never reinforced with a US. Trials were presented pseudorandomly, 66 times each. The subjects gradually produced conditioned responses to CS+ trials, while increasingly differentiating between CS+ and CS- trials. The increasing difference between hemodynamic responses for unpaired CS+ and for CS- trials evolved slowly during conditioning in the ipsilateral cerebellar cortex (Crus I/Lobule HVI), contralateral motor cortex and hippocampus. To localize changes that were related to sensory prediction, we compared trials
Classical conditioning of motor responses, such as the eyeblink response, is an experimental model of associative learning and of adaptive timing of movements. A conditioned blink will have its...
3) Schedule study sessions starting early in the morning rather than late night. The common concept is, At night I concentrate better. For an exam it is not how much you read but what you can remember on call. Studying in daytime is better as you will study faster with a far better reproducible memory than the same amount at night when fatigue causes loss of ability to concentrate.. 4) Adjust the lighting in your study area. Though you want the area in your study to be well lit, make sure the room has enough ambient lighting. Studying in a dark room leads to eye strain as the contrast between the lighted and unlighted areas is too much. Light coming from a lamp at your side and back is easier on the eyes.. 5) When we concentrate hard, the blink rate of the eyes drops significantly. This leads to dryness, blurring and diffused vision. Blink frequently whenever you study for long periods at a time. Blinking helps to keep eyes moist. Dry eyes leads to tired eyes. Using tear lubricants is also a ...
In this study, we characterized the pharmacological effects of dexmedetomidine on the basis of increasing steady-state plasma concentrations using defined stimulus-response and continuous effect measurements in rats. Table 2 demonstrates that dexmedetomidine, when administered alone, can be typified as a drug that creates bradycardia, sedation/hypnosis (absence of whisker and righting reflexes), sympathoadrenal blocking effects, and a blood pressure-increasing effect at plasma concentrations below 2.5 ng/ml. Higher plasma concentrations are needed to loose the startle reflex, tail-flick, tail clamp, and corneal reflex responses. The EC50value for loss of corneal reflex could not be determined accurately because the measure was lost in only a few rats. This indicates that even higher plasma concentrations of dexmedetomidine should have been targeted to abolish this measure. At the estimated EC50 for loss of response to tail clamp, only mild ventilatory depressant effects were observed, which is ...
Even if all external circumstances are kept equal, the oculomotor system shows intra-individual variability over time, affecting measures such as microsaccade rate, blink rate, pupil size, and gaze position. Recently, some of these measures have been associated with ADHD on a between-subject level. However, it remains unclear to what extent these measures constitute stable individual traits. In the current study, we investigate the intra-individual reliability of these oculomotor features. Combining results over three experiments (,100 healthy participants), we found evidence for intra-individual reliability over different time points (repeatability) as well as over different conditions (generalization). Furthermore, we correlated oculomotor variability with self-assessed ADHD tendencies, mind wandering, and impulsivity, and found evidence against such correlations. As such, the oculomotor system shows reliable intra-individual reliability, but its use for distinguishing self-assessed individual ...

The corneal reflex test (blink test) examines the reflex pathway involving cranial nerves V and VII. Classically the provider lightly touches a wisp of cotton on the patients cornea. This foreign body sensation should cause the patient to reflexively blink.. This maneuver always makes me a little worried about causing a corneal abrasion, especially if you are examining a very somnolent patient. You are wondering - Is there no blinking because youre not touching the cornea hard enough? You apply harder pressure but still no blink. You repeat the test and now the patient finally blinks. Thats 3 times youve just scraped against the cornea.. Whats an alternative approach?. ...
Humans blink 20 times every minute. But even 3 times is enough to moisten our eyes. So why do we blink so frequently? The answer is still a huge mystery.

Medium to large Cichlids have, in general, a reputation of aggression towards tankmates, intolerance to others of their kind, and just a bad attitude in the aquarium. To dispel those myths, in this post well study what I call the mellow fellows; that is, the medium to large Cichlids that, to a lesser or greater extent, are completely passive in the aquarium. Some, of course, are more passive than others, and one or two can suddenly turn from Dr. Jeckle to Mr. Hyde in an eye blink, or will
That hasnt happened yet. But the clear focus of sexual-orientation research has shifted to biological causes, and there hasnt been much science produced to support the old theories tying homosexuality to upbringing. Freud may have been seeing the effect rather than the cause, since a father faced with a very feminine son might well become more distant or hostile, leading the boys mother to become more protective. In recent years, researchers who suspect that homosexuality is inborn - whether because of genetics or events happening in the womb - have looked everywhere for clues: Prenatal hormones. Birth order. Finger length. Fingerprints. Stress. Sweat. Eye blinks. Spatial relations. Hearing. Handedness. Even gay sheep ...

In a previous UI Design Blink, I pointed to the design practice of arranging figures and explanatory text closely together, and justified it with the contiguity effect described by the cognitive load theory. However, the same theorys redundancy effect implies that this practice can be detrimental for users for whom a figure is self-explanatory (I will call them expert users in the following). Therefore, I asked the obvious questions: How can designers know in advance if their users are experts, casual users, ore mere beginners? And if designers do not know their audience, how can they address this dilemma? In this UI Design Blink, I primarily focus on the second question and revive an - admittedly, old - design proposal. Please note that the topic of designing for different user groups in general is a huge field in itself, which would definitely exceed the scope of this article. When designers know their audience, they can act appropriately. For example, they can place descriptive text ...

  • It is well established that cognitive system overload is reflected in the attentional blink (AB), the failure to report a second target when it closely follows detection of a first target within a rapid series of stimuli. (
  • Attention training through meditation can reduce the duration of the "attentional blink" - in which detection of a first rare target causes people to be unaware of a second target presented soon after the first - according to research by Slagter et al from PLoSBiology. (
  • Slagter et al administered pre- and post-training tests of the attentional blink to a control group of subjects interested in meditation, as well as an experimental group who underwent a 3 month Vapissana meditation retreat. (
  • Only the experimental group showed post-test increases in their ability to detect the second target, indicating a shortened attentional blink. (
  • This did not reflect a general increase in vigilance, as the meditation-related improvement did not occur outside of the time window in which the blink is normally observed (obviously, given a certain interval between the first and second targets, no one will show an attentional blink). (
  • Nor did this reflect a pre-test difference between groups in the attentional blink, as confirmed through covariance analyses. (
  • Second, it seems that detection of the second target would rely on the ventral attentional system, involved in generating the p3 response known to occur in the attentional blink paradigm. (
