A degeneration of the ARTICULAR CARTILAGE of the PATELLA, caused by a decrease in sulfated MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDES in the ground substance. When accompanied by pain, it is sometimes considered part of or confused with PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME.
The flat, triangular bone situated at the anterior part of the KNEE.
Pathological processes involving the chondral tissue (CARTILAGE).
A condition in which one or more of the arches of the foot have flattened out.
A synovial hinge connection formed between the bones of the FEMUR; TIBIA; and PATELLA.
A protective layer of firm, flexible cartilage over the articulating ends of bones. It provides a smooth surface for joint movement, protecting the ends of long bones from wear at points of contact.
A highly glycosylated and sulfated phosphoprotein that is found almost exclusively in mineralized connective tissues. It is an extracellular matrix protein that binds to hydroxyapatite through polyglutamic acid sequences and mediates cell attachment through an RGD sequence.
The longest and largest bone of the skeleton, it is situated between the hip and the knee.
Lack of stability of a joint or joint prosthesis. Factors involved are intra-articular disease and integrity of extra-articular structures such as joint capsule, ligaments, and muscles.
A number of ligaments on either side of, and serving as a radius of movement of, a joint having a hingelike movement. They occur at the elbow, knee, wrist, metacarpo- and metatarsophalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and distal interphalangeal joints of the hands and feet. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the TRACHEA and the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy non-rigid airway making patency difficult to maintain.
Surgical techniques used to correct or augment healing of chondral defects in the joints (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR). These include abrasion, drilling, and microfracture of the subchondral bone to enhance chondral resurfacing via autografts, allografts, or cell transplantation.

Endoscopic examination, therapy and surgery of the joint.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.

A syndrome characterized by retropatellar or peripatellar PAIN resulting from physical and biochemical changes in the patellofemoral joint. The pain is most prominent when ascending or descending stairs, squatting, or sitting with flexed knees. There is a lack of consensus on the etiology and treatment. The syndrome is often confused with (or accompanied by) CHONDROMALACIA PATELLAE, the latter describing a pathological condition of the CARTILAGE and not a syndrome.
A heterogeneous group of disorders, some hereditary, others acquired, characterized by abnormal structure or function of one or more of the elements of connective tissue, i.e., collagen, elastin, or the mucopolysaccharides.
A heterogeneous group of autosomally inherited COLLAGEN DISEASES caused by defects in the synthesis or structure of FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN. There are numerous subtypes: classical, hypermobility, vascular, and others. Common clinical features include hyperextensible skin and joints, skin fragility and reduced wound healing capability.

Autologous chondrocyte implantation at the knee using a bilayer collagen membrane with bone graft. A preliminary report. (1/9)

Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is a technique used for the treatment of symptomatic osteochondral defects of the knee. A variation of the original periosteum membrane technique is the matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) technique. The MACI membrane consists of a porcine type-I/III collagen bilayer seeded with chondrocytes. Osteochondral defects deeper than 8 to 10 mm usually require bone grafting either before or at the time of transplantation of cartilage. We have used a variation of Peterson's ACI-periosteum sandwich technique using two MACI membranes with bone graft which avoids periosteal harvesting. The procedure is suture-free and requires less operating time and surgical exposure. We performed this MACI-sandwich technique on eight patients, five of whom were assessed at six months and one year post-operatively using the modified Cincinnati knee, the Stanmore functional rating and the visual analogue pain scores. All patients improved within six months with further improvement at one year. The clinical outcome was good or excellent in four after six months and one year. No significant graft-associated complications were observed. Our early results of the MACI-sandwich technique are encouraging although larger medium-term studies are required before there is widespread adoption of the technique.  (+info)

Second-look arthroscopy of cartilage changes of the patellofemoral joint, especially the patella, following acute and recurrent patellar dislocation. (2/9)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to clarify some pathogenesis of the cartilage changes of the patellofemoral joint in patellar dislocation knees. METHODS: A first arthroscopy was performed in a total of 60 knees, including 30 knees of acute patellar dislocation (APD) and 30 knees of recurrent patellar dislocation (RPD). At the time of the first arthroscopy, 58 knees sustained open medial patellofemoral ligament repair/reconstruction, and 2 knees had only arthroscopy examination. In APD knees, the second-look arthroscopy was performed 16.7 months after the first arthroscopy, and in RPD knees, 25.2 months after the first arthroscopy. RESULTS: In most APD knees, cracking primarily on the central dome of the patella did not have a remarkable change but in several knees that had a high number of cracking or interlaced cracking, cracking became worse with fibrillation. Osteochondral defect site primarily on the medial facet showed fibrillation and/or ulceration (erosion). In most RPD knees, fissuring primarily on the central dome did not have a remarkable change, and fibrillation and/or erosion mainly on the medial facet also did not have a remarkable change. However, in four knees with the continuation of patellar dislocation, the patellar cartilage changes had definitely worsened. On the other hand, in the first and second-look arthroscopy, most APD and RPD knees had no remarkable cartilage lesions or cartilage changes of the femoro-trochlear aspect. CONCLUSIONS: One of the pathogenesis of fissuring in RPD knees seems to be cracking occurring at the time of APD. Two of the pathogenesis of fibrillation may result from the reparative reaction of the cartilage in osteochondral defect site and the cartilage change due to a high degree of cracking damage mainly on the central dome in APD injury. The continuation of patellar dislocation definitely makes the patellar cartilage lesions worse.  (+info)

Who is the ideal candidate for autologous chondrocyte implantation? (3/9)

We investigated the prognostic indicators for collagen-covered autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI-C) performed for symptomatic osteochondral defects of the knee. We analysed prospectively 199 patients for up to four years after surgery using the modified Cincinnati score. Arthroscopic assessment and biopsy of the neocartilage was also performed whenever possible. The favourable factors for ACI-C include younger patients with higher pre-operative modified Cincinnati scores, a less than two-year history of symptoms, a single defect, a defect on the trochlea or lateral femoral condyle and patients with fewer than two previous procedures on the index knee. Revision ACI-C in patients with previous ACI and mosaicplasties which had failed produced significantly inferior clinical results. Gender (p = 0.20) and the size of the defect (p = 0.97) did not significantly influence the outcome.  (+info)

Chondromalacia patellae treated by warming needle and rehabilitation training. (5/9)

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of warming needle combined with rehabilitation training on chondromalacia patellae in a randomized controlled trial. METHODS: The 92 cases were randomly divided into a treatment group treated by warming needle plus rehabilitation training (47 cases) and a control group treated by medication plus rehabilitation training (45 cases), and the therapeutic effect was compared after 20 sessions. RESULTS: The pain was relieved more obviously in the treatment group than in the control group (P < 0.05), and the total effective rate was 91.8% and 71.1% respectively (P < 0.01). CONCLUSION: Warming needle plus rehabilitation training was superior in the therapeutic effect and duration of producing relief of pain to medication plus rehabilitation training in treating chondromalacia patellae.  (+info)

On the basis of MR images, chondromalacia and its grade were determined in each of five articular cartilage regions (total, 105 regions) and then the results were compared to arthroscopic findings. The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of MRI were 70%, 99%, and 93%, respectively. MR images depicted 7 of 11 lesions of arthroscopic grade 1 or 2 chondromalacia, and seven of nine lesions of arthroscopic grade 3 or 4 chondromalacia. The cartilage abnormalities in all cases appeared as focal ...
Pain level: Mild to severe. Chondromalacia patella is a condition in which the cartilage underneath the kneecap wears down, typically due to the constant stress that occurs when runners repeatedly pound the pavement. Most people whove had some sort of athletic career when they were younger have a mild form of chondromalacia patella, says Holland.. There are varying levels of soreness associated with chondromalacia patella, from a mild ache when squatting to pain so severe that running is impossible. The pain is felt underneath the kneecap in a larger surface area than you see with patellofemoral pain syndrome, and you may occasionally hear crackling sounds.. In mild cases, physical therapy will help correct the issues and ease the pain, while severe cases typically call for cortisone injections or surgery. ...
Chondromalacia (otherwise known as chondromalacia patellae, anterior knee pain syndrome, patellofemoral disorder or runners knee) is caused by improper tracking of the kneecap over the femur. As a result, the cartilage under the kneecap becomes roughened and pain results when the knee is bent or straightened while bearing weight.

Researchers have confirmed that physiotherapy intervention is a very effective short and long-term solution for kneecap pain.. Over 90% of patellofemoral syndrome sufferers will usually respond favourably to exercise-based treatment. Becoming pain-free within six weeks of starting a physiotherapist guided rehabilitation program is commonplace.. For those who fail to respond, surgery may repair associated injuries such as severely damaged or arthritic joint surfaces.. Treatment aims to reduce your pain and inflammation in the short term and then, more importantly, correct the cause to prevent it from returning in the long term.. There is no specific time frame for when to progress from each stage to the next. Many factors will determine your injury rehabilitation during your physiotherapists clinical assessment.. Youll find that in most cases, your physiotherapist will seamlessly progress between the rehabilitation phases as your clinical assessment and function improves. It is also important ...
A) In my particular instance, I dont think I have any major muscular imbalances. My personal theory is that the notion of strengthening the posterior chain for knee pain doesnt solely help because of muscle imbalance, but rather that people who have strong posterior chains usually have better biomechanic (ie. dont leg press a squat) and dont let their anterior chains get overworkedand tight (through indirect anterior stretching; you cant finish full hip extension if your anterior chain is out of wack).. B) I was tight in the first place because I was running 4-5 times a week, swimming 3 days a week, and fin swimming 2 days a week (Air Force). I neglected stretching. I wasnt as strict on my biomechanics either. Thats the first change to make. No knee valgus, no excessive knees over toes, etc.. C) You need to stretch/mobilize to not get tight. But you need to break up all that stiffness with the myofascial work to aid the mobilization. Its like peanut butter and jelly.. 3) The barbell, and ...

Regular exercise with Powerball® can help maintain muscle tone and health from finger to shoulder, thanks to its rhythmic movement and non-impact nature. When your muscles respond to the demands placed upon them from exercising with Powerball®, blood flow increases and joint health is promoted by stimulating the production of synovial fluid (the fluid that lubricates and nourishes joints). The gripping action required to hold Powerball® activates the finger flexor muscles and the wrist extensor muscles. Activating the wrist extensors prevents wrist flexion, thereby enhancing grip strength. With the wrist extensors activated by the gripping action, the rotatory movements necessary to maintain the gyroscopic movement of Powerball® exert forces on a wide range of muscles.. ...

Chondromalacia Patella is considered as the main cause of anterior knee pain. Get excellent and most reasonable treatment with us, North Sydney Physiotherapy.
Episodic or lifelong knee pain is increasingly familiar to a greater number of people. Amongst young adults, the most common pain is of the lower fraction, just below the patella (knee cap), and towards the inner side of the knee. Clinically this is referred to as Prepatellar Bursitis, common diagnoses are; patella tendonitis, Osgood-shlatter disease, chondromalacia patellae or even plica syndrome.. Yet it is comforting to recognize that what manifested the same in its clinical stage is often treated the same, and non-invasively; surgery is only sponsored in the more extreme cases, and only when propped up with an initial exploratory arthroscopy. The common non-invasive treatment is referred to as RICE; Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.. The proprioceptive idiom is a basic instrument of injury rehabilitation and sports specific training. Though the proprioceptive organ in humans still remains unsolved, many are in agreement that the phenomenon is endorsed at all levels and all body systems; ...
Introduction: Stroke survivors develop substantial disability such as weakness, spasticity, increased stiffness, and reduced range of motion in lower limbs, contributing to reduced quality of life. It is important to stretch impaired ankle and knee to increase range of motion and reduce spasticity, and to conduct active movement training to improve balance and locomotion.. Hypothesis: We addressed the hypotheses that robot-aided ankle and knee training will reduce motor impairments and improve balance and gait functions, and the improvements will maintain to the 6-weeks follow-up.. Methods: Seven male stroke survivors participated in the robot-guided ankle and knee rehabilitation training using a pair of ankle and knee rehabilitation robots over 18 training sessions (3 sessions/week for 6 weeks). Three evaluations were done before and after training, and 6 weeks follow-up. Each session involved passive stretching under intelligent control and active movement training under real-time, audiovisual ...

The educational-behavioral program included 2 educational meetings and 12 rehabilitation exercise sessions (stretching, strengthening, chest and spine/hip joint flexibility exercises), which patients then performed at home. Outcome assessment at the end of rehabilitation training (T1) and at T2 was based on spinal pain intensity in the previous 4 weeks by self-report visual analog scale (VAS; 100 mm: 0 = no pain, 100 = maximum pain), BASMI, BASFI, BASDAI, and on chest expansion and the active range of motion of the cervical and lumbar spine measured by a pocket goniometer. ...

Background: To compare fat-suppressed three-dimensional gradient echo (3D-GRE) and two-dimensional gradient echo (2D-GRE) techniques for hepatic magnetic resonance imaging. Methods: For 107 patients with suspected focal hepatic lesions, unenhanced 2D-GRE multislice in-phase and opposed-phase images and 3D-GRE images were obtained. Two radiologists independently and in random order reviewed the images. Quantitative analysis compared contrast-to-noise ratio (C/N) of liver masses and of the liver to spleen and signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) of the liver. Subjective grading of lesion conspicuity, confidence for lesion detection, artifacts, and overall image quality were also evaluated. Results: Conspicuity and confidence for focal lesions was statistically significantly higher on 3D-GRE than on 2D-GRE images. Liver-to-spleen C/N was higher on 3D-GRE images than on in-phase and opposed-phase 2D-GRE images (p | 0.01). Liver S/N was higher on in-phase 2D-GRE images than on 3D-GRE and opposed-phase 2D-GRE images

The incidence and prevalence of chronic musculoskeletal pain disorders (MSDs) in the United States is rising at an unprecedented rate. With the paradigm shift of diseases affecting the human population in developed countries switching from infectious diseases to non-communicable diseases, the prevalence of chronic MSDs is steadily increasing. The Global Burden of Disease identified low back pain, neck pain, and other musculoskeletal conditions as three of the top ten leading causes for years lived with disability worldwide.1 According to a forthcoming report from the United States Bone and Joint Initiative2, more than 78% of people age 18 years and older who reported having a disabling condition named a musculoskeletal disorder. The updated report also said more than one-half of the US population who live with a musculoskeletal condition experience decreases in both their quality of life and ability to perform activities of daily living. This was especially true for those who have back pain or ...
There are many different knee conditions, including Osteoarthritis, Chondromalacia Patella syndrome, Collateral ligament injuries, Joint instability, Osgood-Schlatter syndrome and Patellar Tendonosis (Runners knee). All of these conditions have been improved using prolotherapy. Let us consider Chondromalacia Patella syndrome. There is a small, but strong study showing the beneficial results of treatment with prolotherapy. If you are interested, you can read the details in the medical article. Let me break down what is in the article.. The authors treated 61 patients (69 knees) in both men and women. After prolotherapy, 97% of patients had little to no pain with activity; a vast improvement, considering that 33% had severe pain after activity before treatment. Stiffness was also improved. Before treatment, 11 of the knees had extreme stiffness; zero were reported to be so following treatment. In fact, 95% of the knees had little to no stiffness following treatment. The treatment improved range ...
Big name, small problem. Everyday problem. Everybodys problem. Chondromalacia patellae is the medical name of that knee problem, the knee pain you have after returning from a vacation in the mountains, or after that trek with friends, and also after that dance drama you staged for the school function. It may appear to be a complicated disease by the name of it, but it is so simple and innocuous a disease that most people would have cured themselves while they waited for the doctors appointment.. Technically speaking, the bones in our joints are covered with firm spongy layer of tissue called cartilage. This tissue takes the entire load that passes through the joint & cushions the bones against the impact. Because their essential purpose is to absorb the joint impact forces, they undergo repetitive wear & tear. Nature compensates for this by healing it as fast as it wears down. But sometimes, when we suddenly over exert our knees - like when we do on vacations, on treks and during dance ...

Articular cartilage lesions occur commonly. Cartilage is relatively avascular and is unable to self-repair. A chondral lesion may become symptomatic. It may lead to osteoarthritis and increased morbidity. The aim of cartilage repair is to restore hyaline cartilage. There are many types of cartilage repair surgery, most of which result in fibrocartilage repair tissue that is suboptimal. Autologous chondrocyte implantation has been shown to produce hyaline-type repair tissue. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is performed preoperatively to define the ulcer and postoperatively to evaluate the technical success of implantation and the state of cartilage healing and to identify potential complications. Features of the autologous chondrocyte implantation graft that are assessed include the degree of filling by repair tissue, its integration with native cartilage and subchondral bone, the character of the graft substance and surface, and the underlying bone. MR arthrography is superior to unenhanced MR ...

Anterior knee pain is also known as chondromalacia patella, patellar chondritis, and patello-femoral syndrome.. Pain felt at the front of the knee is usually due to problems with the patello-femoral mechanism (the kneecap). It is usually caused by softening of the joint surface underneath the kneecap. This causes pain as the knee bends and straightens and is particularly noticeable when the kneecap is under most strain such as climbing or descending stairs, kneeling and squatting.. It most commonly affects young individuals and is more common in females. It frequently appears without any obvious cause such as injury or overuse..

Combining intensive group exercise with an educational-behavioral program can provide promising results in the management of patients with clinically stabilized ankylosing spondylitis (AS) on tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor treatment, say authors of an article available online April 1 in Journal of Rheumatology. Sixty-two outpatients (49 men, 13 women, mean age 47.5 ± 10.6 yrs) were randomized to rehabilitation plus an educational-behavioral (n = 20) program, to an educational-behavioral program only (n = 20), or to a control group (n = 22). The educational-behavioral program included 2 educational meetings and 12 rehabilitation exercise sessions (stretching, strengthening, chest and spine/hip joint flexibility exercises), which patients then performed at home. Outcome assessment at the end of rehabilitation training at 2 and 6 months was based on spinal pain intensity in the previous 4 weeks by self-report visual analog scale, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI), Bath ...
His research interests are 1) designing and developing a real-time biofeedback technology to prevent and reduce falls by leveraging fall recovery performance in individuals with a high risk of falling, 2) designing and developing a cell phone based platform for home-based balance rehabilitation and fall prevention applications, 3) designing and developing a wearable sensory augmentation system via vibrotactile biofeedback for conveying motion instructions based on motion error between an expert and a trainee (patient) for potential clinical and home-based balance rehabilitation training applications, and 4) characterizing non-volitional human motor behavior (postural responses) to torso-based vibrotactile stimulation. ...
Downloadable! This paper formulates an econometric framework for studying the impact of interventions on discrete outcomes when responses to treatment vary among observationally identical persons. Using a latent variable model that can be linked to well-posed economic models, we show how to define and interpret the average treatment effects, the average effect of treatment on the treated, the marginal treatment effect and the distribution of treatment effects for discrete outcomes. To estimate these parameters and the distribution of treatment effects, we formulate and estimate a discrete choice model with unobservables generated by a factor structure model. We apply our methods to evaluate the effect of Norwegian Vocational Rehabilitation training programs on employment outcomes for women. We find that applicants to these programs who participate in active training have a 4.6% higher employment rate than nonparticipants. When we control for the observable characteristics of applicants, we find that the

To observe the effect of Triple Acupuncture Therapy, 50 SCI patients meeting study criteria were randomly assigned to a treatment group (n=25) and a control group (n=25). Both groups received rehabilitation training; the treatment group was added with triple acupuncture therapy and the control group was added with regular meridians acupuncture therapy once a day and a month as a course. All patients received three courses of treatment. Besides, 25 healthy subjects were enrolled as a normal control group. It was found out that the CGRP content in two groups were lower significantly than that in the normal control group before treatment. However, after one month of treatment, the CGRP content in treatment group was higher significantly than that in the control group. After three months of treatment, the ASIA motor score and the ASIA feel score were significantly increased in both groups. After two months, three months of treatment, the MBI scales in the two groups were also increased significantly ...
CNIB was incorporated on March 30, 1918[2] to provide food, clothing and sheltered residences for blind veterans returning from World War I as well as the 850 people blind by the Halifax Explosion in 1917,[3], the largest mass blinding in Canadian history.[4] It began with 27 employees serving 1,521 people who were blind, primarily in Toronto, with two home teachers providing rehabilitation training in other parts of Canada.[5]. During the 1920s, CNIB operated a job placement program with limited success, also creating jobs through its own factories, broom shops and concession stands. The organization also appointed a special nurse responsible for vision health and sight preservation.. In 1923, a Dominion Charter was obtained to establish a Home Nursery Hospital and Kindergarten for the Blind under 6 years of age in Ottawa.[6] Mothers of blind babies from any Province in the Dominion, were encouraged to place their charges in the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association for proper care and ...

NICE guidance is designed and developed for the NHS in England and is therefore not automatically applicable to Northern Ireland. On 1 July 2006 the Department established links with NICE whereby all technology appraisals and clinical guidelines published from that date are locally reviewed for applicability to Northern Ireland and, where appropriate, are endorsed for implementation in health and social care. THE LOCAL REVIEW DOES NOT REASSESS THE CLINICAL AND COST EVIDENCE USED BY NICE IN FORMING ITS ADVICE. This link has ensured that Northern Ireland has access to up-to-date, independent, professional, evidence-based guidance on the value of health care interventions.
20/02/2015 Maquet Medical Systems announces today study results showing a significant cost benefit of the endoscopic vessel harvesting (EVH) technique compared to traditional open vessel harvesting (OVH). Data of the study that was conducted at New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton, UK were presented Tuesday, Oct 14th at the 28th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgeons (EACTS) in Milan, Italy.. In Europe, more than 200,000 patients require a CABG procedure each year. For many of these patients, the saphenous vein from the leg or radial artery from the arm is harvested for use to bypass a blockage in the heart. Endoscopic vessel harvesting has been shown to reduce infections, postoperative pain, recovery time and scarring compared with open vessel harvesting surgery.. In the presentation entitled Cost-benefit of endoscopic vein harvest in patients at high-risk for wound complications, researchers compared the costs of EVH and OVH for a non-randomized propensity matched ...

A patella drill guide includes a base portion rotatably mounted on a bone-gripping component. A trial portion with a contoured articulation surface is above the base portion. The base portion and trial portion have aligned drill guide bores. The base portion and trial portion can be rotated together on the bone-gripping component to optimize the positions of the drill guide bores with respect to the patella surface, thereby optimizing the locations of the mounting pegs of the patella implant component on the patella to optimize the orientation of the patella implant component. The base and the bone-gripping component may be unitary so that the entire assembly rotates on the patella about the central longitudinal axis of the bone-gripping component.

The substance of the patella The substance of the patella in older persons is quite hard and solid, notwithstanding Galens assertion that it is cartilaginous on the outside; 11 Marinus likewise, among other prominent anatomists, independently called it a cartilaginous bone and devoted a chapter to it in a book which he wrote, On Cartilaginous Bones. 12 These authors were perhaps thinking of the material of the tendons to which the patella is attached, which when boiled resembles soft cartilage, like the parts from which the sinewy heads of the muscles or the ligaments take their origin or into which they are inserted. But when the patella is properly cleaned of tendons 13 it is seen to be in no way cartilaginous, but quite solid and strong not only in humans but also in cattle, sheep, and other quadrupeds. Before their knee joint, as well, the Maker of things placed a patella, much longer and narrower than in humans, as in most birds it is wider and shorter. 14 ...
When neurons oscillate in synchrony, their electrical activity adds together so that measurements of field potential can pick them up. SWRs are one of the most synchronous oscillations in the brain.. The name derives from their characteristic trace when measuring local field potential: the slow sharp waves have a triangular shape with ripples, or fast field oscillations, added on. SWRs have been suggested to play a key role in making memories permanent. In this study, the researchers wanted to identify whether ripples are caused by a temporal modulation of excitation or of inhibition at the synapse, the connection between neurons.. For Professor Jozsef Csicsvari, a pooling of expertise was crucial in answering this question: ...
Chiefs: The Chiefs have found a passing game in the last month to match their running attack and their home field makes them dangerous. They continue to improve and compete at the highest level. They are for real -- and when they have offensive balance and get the lead, their defense, especially at home, is even better. They seem to be peaking at the right time and will be a factor the next five games, three of which are at home. They have to play in San Diego and St. Louis in Weeks 14 and 15. If they take care of their homes games, they are a 10-win team. Welcome to the playoffs Kansas City.. Eagles: Philadelphia needs a fast field and they must play with a lead. When they get behind, their defense is not good enough to go toe-to-toe with anyone. Then they make mistakes, and also it brings Andy Reids inability to manage the game into play.
