AU - Fukutani, Atsuki. AU - Yanai, Toshimasa. AU - Kawakami, Yasuo. PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - Introduction: In this study we aimed to compare the extent of twitch potentiation (TP) after voluntary contraction and percutaneous electrical stimulation of muscles (neuromuscular electrical stimulation: NMES) with various stimulation frequencies at equivalent target levels. Methods: Isometric knee extensions of 10 s were performed at a 40% maximal voluntary contraction level by voluntary or NMES conditioning contractions at 20, 40, and 80 H Z of the quadriceps femoris muscle. Twitch responses were elicited by stimulating the femoral nerve transcutaneously at supramaximal intensity. Results: NMES at 80 HZ induced significantly less TP (128.7 ± 17.1%) than voluntary contraction (156.2 ± 23.1%), whereas no ...

Although initial studies suggested that the MEP in the rat arises from activation of the spinal pyramidal pathway, subsequent studies have raised doubts concerning the pyramidal origin of the MEP and have proposed that the spread of stimulation current in some of these studies resulted in activation of the extrapyramidal system. [18-24] Ryder and colleagues [24] showed that monopolar stimulation of the sensorimotor cortex activates the extrapyramidal and pyramidal tracts, and bipolar stimulation restricted to the motor cortex using low stimulus current activates only the pyramidal tract. They concluded that early and late latency spinal-evoked responses were considered to be induced by activation of extrapyramidal and pyramidal tracts, respectively. Although we used bipolar stimulation of the motor cortex in the present study, stimulus current was higher than that reported by Ryder and colleagues. [24] Both extrapyramidal and pyramidal tracts must be activated in the present study. However, it ...

A system for providing medical electrical stimulation, the system features a pulse generator, the pulse generator generating electrical stimulation pulses of a first amplitude and a second amplitude, first and second elongated leads coupled to the pulse generator, a zener diode which directs electrical stimulation pulses of a first amplitude to the first lead and directs electrical stimulation pulses of a second amplitude to the first lead and the second lead, the means for directing electrical stimulation pulses coupled to the pulse generator. In the preferred embodiment the diode is electrically coupled to one of the leads such that electrical stimulation of a first amplitude is not passed through the diode while electrical stimulation of a second amplitude is passed through the diode. Overall the adaptor permits a single channel of stimulation to be split and provided to two areas of the heart merely be adjusting the amplitude of the stimulation pulses.
Cortical stimulation mapping (CSM) is a type of electrocorticography that involves a physically invasive procedure and aims to localize the function of specific brain regions through direct electrical stimulation of the cerebral cortex. It remains one of the earliest methods of analyzing the brain and has allowed researchers to study the relationship between cortical structure and systemic function. Cortical stimulation mapping is used for a number of clinical and therapeutic applications, and remains the preferred method for the pre-surgical mapping of the motor cortex and language areas to prevent unnecessary functional damage. There are also some clinical applications for cortical stimulation mapping, such as the treatment of epilepsy. The history of cortical stimulation mapping dates back to the late 19th century. Neurologists David Ferrier and Victor Horsley were some of the first to utilize this technique. Ferrier and Horsley employed CSM to further grasp the structure and function of the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Spatial heterogeneity of transmembrane potential responses of single guinea-pig cardiac cells during electric field stimulation. AU - Sharma, Vinod. AU - Tung, Leslie. PY - 2002/7/15. Y1 - 2002/7/15. N2 - Changes in transmembrane voltage (Vm) of cardiac cells during electric field stimulation have a complex spatial- and time-dependent behaviour that differs significantly from electrical stimulation of space-clamped membranes by current pulses. A multisite optical mapping system was used to obtain 17 or 25 μm resolution maps of Vm along the long axis of guinea-pig ventricular cells (n = 57) stained with voltage-sensitive dye (di-8-ANEPPS) and stimulated longitudinally with uniform electric field (2, 5 or 10 ms, 3-62 V cm-1) pulses (n = 201). The initial polarizations of Vm responses (Vmr) varied linearly along the cell length and reversed symmetrically upon field reversal. The remainder of the Vm responses had parallel time courses among the recording sites, revealing a common ...

NEW FINDINGS. What is the central question of this study? How does peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) compare with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) used clinically to reduce muscle atrophy? What is the main finding and its importance? NMES resulted in progressive increases in M-wave duration and delay of muscle relaxation throughout a single stimulation protocol, findings not observed with PNS. This suggests PNS recruits from a wider pool of muscle fibres/motor units, providing a more favourable alternative to NMES for rehabilitation intervention.. ABSTRACT. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is increasingly viewed as a central tenet to minimise muscle loss during periods of disuse/illness - typically applied directly over a muscle belly. Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is afforded less attention, despite providing a more global contractile stimulus to muscles. We investigated NMES versus PNS in relation to performance fatigability and peripheral contributions to voluntary ...
It is the function of a pacemaker to provide electrical stimulation pulses to the appropriate chamber(s) of the heart (atria or ventricles) in the event that the heart is unable to beat of its own (i.e. in the event that either the sinoatrial node fails to generate its own natural stimulation pulses at an appropriate sinus rate, or in the event such natural stimulation pulses do not effectively propagate to the appropriate cardiac tissue). Most modern pacemakers accomplish this function by operating in a demand mode where stimulation pulses from the pacemaker are provided to the heart only when the heart is not beating of its own, as sensed by monitoring the appropriate chamber of the heart for the occurrence of a P-wave or R-wave. If a P-wave or a R-wave is not sensed within a prescribed period of time (which period of time is usually referred to as the escape interval), then a stimulation pulse is generated at the end of this prescribed period of time and delivered to the appropriate heart ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Corticospinal potentials after electrical and magnetic stimulation in man.. AU - Berardelli, A.. AU - Inghilleri, M.. AU - Cruccu, G.. AU - Manfredi, M.. PY - 1991. Y1 - 1991. N2 - The present report deals with our study of the descending volley evoked by both electrical and magnetic transcranial stimulation in man. We discuss the differences of these two techniques specifically as regards the latency and amplitude of evoked potentials. In both cases, electrodes were placed either in the epidural space or directly on the spinal cord. Following electrical stimulation, the descending volley consisted of an early wave which appeared at low stimulation intensity and increased in amplitude and decreased in latency when the strength of the stimulus was increased. At high stimulation intensities the early wave was followed by later waves which travel at the same speed as the initial wave. By delivering paired cortical stimuli, the early wave evoked by the test stimuli is present at ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Inhibition of mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake affects phasic release from motor terminals differently depending on external [Ca2+]. AU - Talbot, Janet D.. AU - David, Gavriel. AU - Barrett, Ellen. PY - 2003/7/1. Y1 - 2003/7/1. N2 - We investigated how inhibition of mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake affects stimulation-induced increases in cytosolic [Ca2+] and phasic and asynchronous transmitter release in lizard motor terminals in 2 and 0.5 mM bath [Ca2+], Lowering bath [Ca2+] reduced the rate of rise, but not the final amplitude, of the increase in mitochondrial [Ca2+] during 50-Hz stimulation. The amplitude of the stimulation-induced increase in cytosolic [Ca2+] was reduced in low-bath [Ca2+] and increased when mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake was inhibited by depolarizing mitochondria. In 2 mM Ca2+, end-plate potentials (epps) depressed by 53% after 10 s of 50-Hz stimulation, and this depression increased to 80% after mitochondrial depolarization. In contrast, in 0.5 mM Ca2+ the same stimulation ...
Electrical stimulation of the central nervous system albeit an unnatural way, has been found to be an effective way of causing neuronal excitation. Retinal prosthesis is an example of such a neuroprosthesis that strives to provide vision to people suffering from Retinitis Pigmentosa and Age-related Macular Degeneration. In these diseases, the photoreceptors in the retina undergo a progressive degeneration leaving the remaining retinal neurons relatively intact. It is by electrically stimulating these retinal neurons that a retinal prosthesis aims to elicit visual percepts.; In addition to providing effective stimulation, such a device has to do so in a manner that is safe for both the device and surrounding biological environment. Numerous studies have been performed to assess the safety limits of electrical stimulation of neurons. However, majority of these studies have been performed in structures other than the retina. The few safety studies performed in the retina have looked at the effect ...

Abstract: : Purpose: Nitric oxide is produced by many retinal neurons, however its ability to modulate synaptic activity in the inner retina is poorly understood. I examined how nitric oxide modulates the excitatory and inhibitory synaptic inputs to ganglion cells evoked by light and by focal electrical stimulation. Methods: I recorded postsynaptic currents from ganglion cells using whole-cell patch clamp techniques in retinal slices prepared under infrared illumination. Responses were elicited by a green LED (1 sec duration) and by brief focal electrical stimulation (zap; 1 msec; .1 - 1.5 µA) of the outer-plexiform layer. Strychnine (10 µM) was used to isolate the GABAergic inputs. Results: Nitric oxide has been shown to affect photoreceptor calcium currents, so I compared responses elicited by illumination with those elicited by the zap, which directly depolarizes bipolar cells to activate inputs to the inner plexiform layer. Application of the nitric oxide donor, NONOate (100 µM) rapidly ...
We tested six stimulation paradigms that consisted of either uniform trains of single pulses or patterned stimulation trains applied at variable low frequencies and either low- or high-intensity current. Low-intensity, prolonged stimulation at 1-5 Hz did not cause any changes but at 10 Hz reliably elicited homosynaptic depression, an effect that dissipated within 3 hr in every case (Figs. 1,2 A, 3 A). High-intensity, prolonged stimulation at 1 Hz still had no impact, but at 5 Hz caused a depression encompassing both pathways and recovering within 1-3 hr (Fig. 3 B). High-intensity current at stimulation of 10 Hz led to a complete and apparently permanent loss of the homosynaptic response, an effect that seemed pathological and of uncertain relevance to normal synaptic operations. Overall, the impact of uniform trains of low-frequency pulses was more pronounced the smaller interpulse intervals and the higher the current intensity. However, in no case did the depression last much longer than 3 ...

Methods and apparatus for testing of the efficacy of therapeutic stimulation of pelvic nerves or musculature to alleviate one of incontinence or sexual dysfunction are disclosed. A therapy delivery device is operable in a therapy delivery mode and a test mode and an evoked response detector is employed in the test mode to detect the evoked response to applied test stimuli. The test stimuli parameters of the test stimulation regimen are adjusted prior to delivery of each test stimulation regimen, and the evoked responses to the applied test stimulation regimens are compared to ascertain an optimal test stimulation regimen. The therapy stimulation regimen parameters are selected as a function of the test electrical stimulation parameters causing the optimal evoked response.
During initial acquisition sessions the frequency was held constant (156 Hz) and the intensity was adjusted by the experimenter to determine the lowest intensity that maintained high rates of responding (more than 40 responses/min). Once responding was established, frequency-response curves were generated. These 2-h sessions consisted of six 10-min components, which were further broken down into ten 1-min trials. Each 60-s trial consisted of a 5-s timeout, then a 5-s period during which five noncontingent stimulations were delivered, and finally a 50-s period in which lever presses resulted in stimulation and were recorded. During these sessions the intensity remained the same (unique to each animal) and 10 frequencies (156-45 Hz, 0.06 log increments) corresponding to each trial were presented in descending order. A 1-h timeout period between the third and fourth components permitted drug injections during test sessions. During test sessions when fentanyl was administered, the timeout period was ...
A computer stimulated the prefrontal cortex exactly when braking was needed. This was done using electrodes implanted directly on the brain surface.. When the test was repeated with stimulation of a brain region outside the prefrontal cortex, there was no effect on behavior, showing the effect to be specific to the prefrontal braking system.. This was a double-blind study, meaning that participants and scientists did not know when or where the charges were being administered.. The method of electrical stimulation was novel in that it apparently enhanced prefrontal function, whereas other human brain stimulation studies mostly disrupt normal brain activity. This is the first published human study to enhance prefrontal lobe function using direct electrical stimulation, the researchers report.. The study involved four volunteers with epilepsy who agreed to participate while being monitored for seizures at the Mischer Neuroscience Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center (TMC). Stimulation ...
In general, the disclosure describes implantable pulse generators (IPGs) adapted to deliver stimulation to refractory myocardial tissue. An IPG nominally delivers one to six monophasic stimulation pulses. Because monophasic stimulation tends to accumulate polarization, a programmable blanking period of between about 20 milliseconds (ms) and about 300 ms is implemented (subsequent to delivery of the last pulse in a RPS pulse train) to allow recovery from polarization. The stimulation pulse width is about 0.03 ms to about 1.6 ms and voltage amplitude of 0.5 volts to 8 volts at about 50 Hz. The amplitude of electrical current of the stimulation pulses is less than or equal to approximately 50 milliamps. The pulses are delivered to multiple sites within a cardiac chamber and device performance and/or diagnostic information can be stored within a memory structure and reviewed to confirm delivery of a desired therapy regimen.

Systems of techniques for controlling charge flow during the electrical stimulation of tissue. In one aspect, a method includes receiving a charge setting describing an amount of charge that is to flow during a stimulation pulse that electrically stimulates a tissue, and generating and delivering the stimulation pulse in a manner such that an amount of charge delivered to the tissue during the stimulation pulse accords with the charge setting.
When surgery and medication dont help people with epilepsy, electrical stimulation of the brain has been a treatment of last resort. Unfortunately, typical approaches, such as vagal nerve stimulation or responsive nerve stimulation, rarely stop seizures altogether. But a new Mayo Clinic study in JAMA Neurology shows that seizures were suppressed in patients treated with…
Systems of and methods for stimulation of neurological tissue that may generate stimulation trains with temporal patterns of stimulation is shown and disclosed herein. The temporal patterns of stimulation may include intervals between electrical pulses (the inter-pulse intervals) that change or vary over time. Compared to conventional continuous, high rate pulse trains having regular (i.e., constant) inter-pulse intervals, the non-regular (i.e., not constant) pulse patterns or trains that embody features of the invention may provide a lower average frequency.

A study of activity recorded with intracellular micropipettes was undertaken in the caudal abdominal ganglion of the crayfish in order to gain information about central fiber to fiber synaptic mechanisms. This synaptic system has well developed integrative properties. Excitatory post-synaptic potentials can be graded, and synaptic potentials from different inputs can sum to initiate spike discharge. In most impaled units, the spike discharge fails to destroy the synaptic potential, thereby allowing sustained depolarization and multiple spike discharge following single pulse stimulation to an afferent input. Some units had characteristics which suggest a graded threshold for spike generation along the post-synaptic fiber membrane. Other impaled units responded to afferent stimulation with spike discharges of two distinct amplitudes. The smaller or abortive spikes in such units may represent non-invading activity in branches of the post-synaptic axon. On a few occasions one afferent input was ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Low-frequency stimulation induces stable transitions in stereotypical activity in cortical networks. AU - Vajda, I.. AU - van Pelt, J.. AU - Wolters, P.. AU - Chiappalone, M. AU - Martinoia, S. AU - van Someren, E.J.W.. AU - van Ooyen, A.. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Reverberating spontaneous synchronized brain activity is believed to play an important role in neural information processing. Whether and how external stimuli can influence this spontaneous activity is poorly understood. Because periodic synchronized network activity is also prominent in in vitro neuronal cultures, we used cortical cultures grown on multielectrode arrays to examine how spontaneous activity is affected by external stimuli. Spontaneous network activity before and after low-frequency electrical stimulation was quantified in several ways. Our results show that the initially stable pattern of stereotypical spontaneous activity was transformed into another activity pattern that remained stable for at least ...

We induced atrioventricular dissociation and initiated ventricular pacing in intact dogs and isolated cat hearts. Left ventricular pressure, its time derivative (dP/t), and action potentials were recorded. When a test pulse was introduced at varying intervals after a period of steady pacing, an optimum contractile response was obtained at an average interval of 720 msec. A similar optimum interval was obtained after pacing at various frequencies and after paired pulse stimulation but was shortened to 560 msec after infusion of epinephrine. The magnitude of the optimum contractile response increased with an increase in the frequency of prior pacing which was accompanied by an increase in the time the cell membrane was depolarized. The optimum contractile response following paired pulse stimulation was greater than that following regular pacing, with the same number of stimuli per minute and the same time of membrane depolarization. The results are explicable in terms of intracellular calcium ion ...
Electrical Stimulation: How Does it Work and Why You May Not Need It. Electrical stimulation is a wonderful tool that physical therapists can use on a regular basis. There are different types of electrical stimulation units. These different types of units create different types of waveforms are and are used for very different reasons. Some waves help to reduce pain by stimulating certain parts of nerves that can send painful signals to the brain. Others can cause muscle contractions which can help to strength muscles. How does it work? Often patients are curious as to how electrical stimulation works. The specific wavelengths, frequencies, ramp up times and other technical aspects can be a bit overwhelming. These things are important to know if you want to get the most out of your experience with electrical stimulation. However, the basic concept of electrical stimulation is pretty simple.. Electricity is the language of our nervous system. All of our nerves, including the brain and spinal cord, ...
A method of verifying cardiac capture. A cardiac signal evoked in response to a cardiac stimulation pulse is sensed via an electrode. The sensed signal is lowpass filtered to remove noise and to pass frequencies characteristic of the evoked cardiac signal. The filtered signal is processed to render a waveform signal representing the second derivative of said filtered signal and the second derivative signal is further analyzed to detect a minimum and a maximum amplitude excursion during a selected window of time beginning at a selected time delay following delivery of the cardiac stimulation pulse. The amplitude difference between the minimum and the maximum is measured and compared to a first reference value. The amplitude of the second derivative is measured during a second selected window of time beginning at a selected time delay following delivery of said cardiac stimulation pulse, and compared to a second reference value. A capture detect signal is generated if the amplitude difference exceeds the

Another important challenge remains in our limited understanding of the specific mechanisms by which stimulation causes its effects, or in other words, what neurophysiological changes occur between the stimulation and the behavioral changes. For example, does applying direct electrical current with short pulses at a low frequency induce a low-frequency oscillation, particularly at the stimulation frequency? Studies sometimes make such implicit assumptions, but the field is lacking a fundamental insight to accept or modify such assumptions. Encouraging advances have been made on this end for TMS (Thut and Miniussi, 2009, Thut and Pascual-Leone, 2009 and Vernet et al., 2013), transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS; Fröhlich and McCormick, 2010 and Herrmann et al., 2013), and direct brain stimulation (Logothetis et al., 2010 and Tolias et al., 2005). For example, Vernet et al. (2013) used a combined TMS-EEG approach to evaluate the cortical effects of continuous theta-burst stimulation ...

The present study has three main results: (1) Processing of different shape stimuli results in activity patterns that in single trials are surprisingly well distinguishable in the local field potential of area V4. (2) Selective attention substantially enhanced the stimulus-dependent differences of these neural activity patterns for the attended stimulus. (3) Behavioral failures went along with a reduction of classification performance. The components of the signal most discriminative for different shapes were contained in the γ-band above 40 Hz and their stimulus-specific characteristics stayed similar during different stimulation periods in a trial. The attention-dependent enhancement of stimulus discriminability cannot be explained by a simple increase of the SNR, but turns out to be most strongly related to a stimulus-specific differential scaling of the frequency components. This scaling results in an enhanced separation between the characteristic frequency patterns in the γ-band for ...
We performed two classes of control experiments to validate the results. First, nontransgenic littermates (n = 9) were injected with Cre-dependent ChR2-EYFP AAV and subjected to the same stimulation paradigm as the experimental animals. Separately, TH::IRES-Cre transgenic mice (n = 9) were injected with Cre-dependent ChR2-EYFP AAV but received no optical stimulation during conditioning to further control for spontaneous preference shifts. Neither control group showed a significant CPP (Fig. 3E right, P , 0.5 by Students t test). Furthermore, we did not find any significant changes in anxiety-related behaviors (Fig. 3G) or in locomotor activity (Fig. 3H) during preference tests and in open field tests (fig. S6).. Next, we tested whether the CPP effect observed was due to an appetitive effect from 50-Hz stimulation or to an aversive effect from 1-Hz stimulation. We compared the effect of each firing modality with no stimulation in two independent cohorts. Consistent with the previous CPP ...
Intraoperative optical imaging (IOI) is a marker-free, contactless, and noninvasive imaging technique that is able to visualize metabolic changes of the brain surface following neuronal activation. Although it has been used in the past mainly for the identification of functional brain areas under general anesthesia, the authors investigated the potential of the method during awake surgery. Measurements were performed in 10 patients who underwent resection of lesions within or adjacent to cortical language or motor sites. IOI was applied in 3 different scenarios: identification of motor areas by using finger-tapping tasks, identification of language areas by using speech tasks (overt and silent speech), and a novel approach-the application of IOI as a feedback tool during direct electrical stimulation (DES) mapping of language. The functional maps, which were calculated from the IOI data (activity maps), were qualitatively compared with the functional MRI (fMRI) and the electrophysiological ...
Positive effects of tDCS in patients in MCS was showed in a recent study published in Neurology. But the effects went down after 1 or 2 hours. To increase the lasting of the effects, a new study will evaluate the effects of tDCS on the left prefrontal dorsolateral cortex for 5 consecutive days in chronic patients in MCS.. 2 sessions of 5 days of stimulation will be realized, one session will be real (anodal stimulation) and one placebo (sham stimulation). After each stimulation, behavioral improvement will be assessed with the Coma Recovery Scale Revised (CRS-R). A final assessment will be done one week after the end of the sessions to assess the long term effect of the tDCS.. Researchers expected to see an improvement of the CRS-r total score at the end of the anodal session and that this improvement persists for a week. ...

In order to have a neuro-stimulation system implanted, you must first have a successful neurostimulation trial. The trial screening procedure, or test of a short test stimulation period in the operating room and an evaluation period of several days at home. During the evaluation period, your doctor determines your response to neurostimulation and your level of pain relief. It also gives you an opportunity to experience the system and enables the doctor to assess your battery requirements.. During the trial screening, your doctor will place a lead in your back to deliver electrical stimulation to the spinal cord. The lead placement is one of the keys to successful results with a neuro-stimulation system. Your involvement is very important to proper placement, so be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully.. Typically, you will receive a local anesthetic and mild sedatives to keep you comfortable during the procedure. After that, your doctor will place the lead in your ...
Electric Muscle Stimulation Therapy is a new approach in treating various pain issues utilizing electrical muscle stimulation to reach deeper layers of the muscles. It is often used by physical therapists and your local Wesley Chapel chiropractor for localized pain relief especially for muscle pains such as fibromyalgia and muscle strains. The mechanism of the muscle stimulation is it delivers small pulsating currents directly on the muscles, which in turn promotes muscle stimulation, blood circulation and muscle healing.. The main benefit of electrical muscle stimulation therapy is pain relief. The electrical currents allow the muscles to release tension and stress relieving muscle soreness, tightness and body aches. For joint pains, electric muscle stimulation therapy also may improve joint symptoms as relaxation of the smooth muscles around a painful joint can help foster healing from joint inflammation.. Using electric muscle stimulation therapy not only provides effective muscle pain ...
We studied the effects of intense sympathetic stimulation on the chronotropic responses of the heart to subsequent test stimulations of the cardiac autonomic nerves in dogs anesthetized with alpha-chloralose. Such intense sympathetic stimulations (which we refer to as release stimulations) are known to release neuropeptide Y as well as norepinephrine. The changes in cardiac cycle length evoked by vagal and sympathetic test stimulations were progressively more attenuated as we increased the frequency and duration of the antecedent sympathetic release stimulations. We found that 2.5 minutes after a maximal release stimulation (30 Hz for 5 minutes), the mean +/- SEM chronotropic responses to the vagal and sympathetic test stimulations were diminished to 36.5 +/- 1.6% and 54.7 +/- 1.3% respectively, of the prestimulation responses. The mean times for the chronotropic responses to the vagal and sympathetic test stimulations to recover to their control values were 52.0 +/- 1.3 and 63.2 +/- 2.9 ...

To determine whether high current strength pacing at the site of origin of ventricular tachycardia (VT) could prevent induction of VT, we studied 11 VTs in 10 patients with chronic coronary artery disease. The left ventricular site of origin of all VT was determined by endocardial catheter mapping. Reproducible VT induction from the right ventricular apex or outflow tract was demonstrated with a pacing current strength equal to twice diastolic threshold (less than or equal to 2.0 mA) with single (two VTs), double (eight VTs), or triple (one VT) extrastimuli following 8 beats of a drive cycle length of 400 to 600 msec. After determination of the baseline VT induction zone (range 10 to 80 msec), repeat induction was attempted while simultaneous pacing was performed during the 8 beat drive train from the left ventricular site of origin with the use of a high current strength (10 mA [two VTs] or 20 mA [nine VTs]) and from the baseline right ventricular site with a current strength equal to twice ...
To investigate whether electrical stimulation promoted axonal regeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) after optic nerve (ON) crush in adult rats. Transcorneal electrical stimulation (TES), which stimulates the retina with current from a corneal contact lens electrode, was used to stimulate the eye. TES was applied for 1 h immediately after ON crush. Axonal regeneration was determined by anterograde labeling of RGC axons. To examine whether the axonal regeneration was mediated by insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) receptors, an IGF-1 receptor antagonist, JB3, was injected intraperitoneally before each TES application. Immunostaining for IGF-1 was performed to examine the effects of TES. To test the survival-promoting effects of TES applied daily, the mean density of retrogradely labeled RGCs was determined on day 12 after ON crush. Compared with sham stimulation, the mean number of regenerating axons significantly increased at 250 microm distal from the lesion and increased IGF-1 ...

Healthy volunteer subjects were assigned randomly to an Experimental group (n=14) that received bursts of electrical stimulation to the gastrocnemius muscle or to a Control group (n=14) that received no treatment. Using a Doppler device, pulsatility index (PI) values were determined for multivariate statistical analysis. Electrical stimulation graded to simulate isometric torques equivalent to 10% and then 30% of the subjects isometric maximum voluntary contraction resulted in respective mean increases in PI values of 20.5% and 19.6% over prestimulation PI values. We found no significant difference in PI values between the two levels of ...
Electrical Muscle Stimulation - Electric stimulation therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to injured tissues to reduce pain and promote faster healing. Patients
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2015) declared that 80% of U.S. adults do not meet exercise recommendations by ACSM. Skeletal muscle contraction has been shown to increase mitochondrial content (energy production) and glucose uptake (decreased insulin resistance). Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) utilizes electrical impulses to induce muscle contractions and can be used as an alternate strategy to induce muscle contraction in sedentary adults. However, it is not clear if NMES induced muscle contraction may improve insulin sensitivity and metabolic health. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of two weeks of NMES on insulin sensitivity, energy expenditure, and body composition in a sedentary population. METHODS: Five female participants (age 23±1 yrs, BMI 24.08±1.36 kg/m2, maximal aerobic capacity 35.4±2.80 ml/kg/min) performed six sessions (20-minutes, 3x/week) of quadriceps electrical stimulation over the course of two weeks.

Cyclosporin A administration is associated with an increased incidence of hypertension. To evaluate the direct effects of the drug on the contractile responses of vascular tissue to adrenergic stimuli, rat caudal artery ring segments were studied before and after the addition of cyclosporin A or its ethanol vehicle in vitro. In a dose-related manner, cyclosporin A augmented the contractile response to transmural nerve stimulation, with a highly significant (p less than 0.001 relative to that produced by the vehicle) lowering of the stimulation rate, a 50% of maximum contractile response (ED50) that elicited. The difference between pretreatment and treatment maximal responses to transmural nerve stimulation was also significantly greater (p less than 0.01) in the cyclosporin A-treated preparations than in those receiving the vehicle. In similar experiments, the responses to exogenous norepinephrine were not significantly affected. The effect of cyclosporin A on transmural nerve stimulation was ...
a valid model for myotonic dystrophy, was assessed, using an in vivo force assessment device, used in conjunction with EMG recording. The aim of the study was to verify whether the muscle force assessment device we developed was capable to sensitively detect the typical characteristics of myotonic muscle. To date, two wild-type and four myotonic female mice have been assessed. After anesthetic induction by isoflurane, the mice were positioned in the apparatus. Hindlimb muscles were stimulated noninvasively by electrodes placed on the muscle of the leg being stimulated. After establishing optimal muscle length, muscle force was assessed after single pulse stimulation at supramaximal voltage followed by double, triple and quadruple pulses. Both legs from each animal were tested and included in the analyses. Muscle force characteristics (peak force, half relaxation time, and area under the force curve (AUC)) and EMG data were recorded and analyzed. Peak forces generated in the myotonic mice were ...

The effects of dl-metanephrine (300 µg/kg i.v.) were determined on responses of the nictitating membrane to norepinephrine, to phenylephrine and to nerve stimulation. After the administration of metanephrine there was an increase in responses of the normal nictitating membrane to norepinephrine and to pnenylephrine in the lower part of the dose-response curve. The rest of the dose-response curve was practically superimposed on the corresponding controls. A similar pattern was observed for the denervated (2 days) nictitating membrane. Responses to pre- and to postganglionic stimulation obtained after the administration of metanephrine were increased for the range of low frequencies of stimulation. The rest of the frequency-response curve was superimposed on the control curve. The increase in responses in the lower part of the response curves was shown to be due to the additive effects of metanephrine and the injected sympathomimetic amine or the endogenously released norepinephrine. It is ...

1. Release of [3H]noradrenaline during peri-arterial nerve stimulation and its inhibition by the presynaptic α-adrenoceptor mechanism were studied in the isolated perfused kidney from spontaneously hypertensive and Wistar-Kyoto rats.. 2. A frequency related vasoconstriction as well as [3H]noradrenaline release were observed over the stimulating range of 0.25-32 Hz in both the Wistar-Kyoto and spontaneously hypertensive rats. The spontaneously hypertensive rat kidneys exhibited both an increased vasoconstrictor response and a greater [3H]noradrenaline release when compared with the Wistar-Kyoto rat kidneys.. 3. Presynaptic inhibition of [3H]noradrenaline release was evaluated at 2 Hz by using the α-adrenoceptor agonist, tramazoline. Increasing concentrations of tramazoline from 2 × 10−9 mol/l to 2 × 10−7 mol/l caused a dose-dependent decrease in the stimulus-induced release of [3H]noradrenaline in spontaneously hypertensive rats but not in Wistar-Kyoto rats. Only 2 × 10−7 mol/l ...

Currently, the study of nociception in humans relies mainly on thermal stimulation of heat-sensitive nociceptive afferents. To circumvent some limitations of thermal stimulation, it was proposed that intra-epidermal electrical stimulation (IES) could be used as an alternative method to activate nociceptors selectively. The selectivity of IES relies on the fact that it can generate a very focal electrical current and, thereby, activate nociceptive free nerve endings located in the epidermis without concomitantly activating non-nociceptive mechanoreceptors located more deeply in the dermis. However, an important limitation of IES is that it is selective for nociceptors only when very low current intensities are used. At these intensities, the stimulus generates a very weak percept, and the signal-to-noise ratio of the elicited evoked potentials (EPs) is very low. To circumvent this limitation, it was proposed that the strength of the nociceptive afferent volley could be increased through temporal ...

Adenylyl cyclases contain two conserved homologous cytoplasmic domains (C1 and C2) that form the catalytic core of the enzyme [21]. Forskolin appears to induce the assembly of these two domains by interacting with the catalytic cleft [21-23]. The affinity between C1 and C2 is also facilitated by Gαs binding. These data have been confirmed by the finding that Forskolin and Gαs stimulate synergistically the cyclase activity [22]. In the presence of Gαs the affinity of Forskolin for the dimer C1/C2 is high (Kd = 0.1 μM), which suggests a stronger affinity for the complete cyclase molecule [23]. The site of interaction of the cyclase (type I or II) for beta/gamma has been located in the C1 b region. This site is independent of the Gαs and Forskolin interaction domains[24]. These findings argue in favor of isolating the cyclase(s) and its associated proteins using Forskolin-agarose affinity chromatography although this procedure enriches indistinctly the different isoforms of the cyclase family. ...
Background: Most U.S. adults (80%) do not meet minimum exercise recommendations by ACSM (CDC, 2015). Using an in vitro primary cell culture model, we and others have shown that muscle contraction induced by electrical stimulation results in increased glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) protein, glucose uptake and mitochondrial content. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is a novel alternate strategy to induce muscle contraction, using electrical impulses. However, effectiveness of NMES induced muscle contraction to improve insulin sensitivity and energy expenditure is not clear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of four weeks of NMES on insulin sensitivity in a sedentary overweight/obese population. Methods: Sedentary overweight/obese participants (n=10; age: 36.8 ± 3.8 years; BMI= 32 ± 1.3 kg/m2) were randomized into either a control or NMES group. All participants received bilateral quadriceps stimulation (12 sessions; 30 minutes/session; 3 times/week) either using low
Electric muscle stimulation trains your muscles in a way that traditional workouts alone cant. EMS, also known as neuromuscular electric stimulation, muscle stim, or e-stim, is delivered through electronic pulses to your nerve fibers in order to create involuntary muscle contractions. Unlike TENS, EMS waveforms activate fast twitch and slow twitch muscle fibers allowing the muscles to be stimulated to the point of exhaustion (relaxation) thus healing them to become stronger. This is similar to weight training. Muscles support joints and ligaments creating better support.. ...

With just-suprathreshold current pulses, FS cells often displayed a considerable delay before the first spike, whereas GIN cells did not (cf. Fig. 2, C and D, top panels). In addition, GIN cells often displayed an afterdepolarization (ADP) following low-frequency action potentials (Fig. 2C, inset; cf. Halabisky et al. 2006). At higher levels of stimulus current, spike frequency adaptation was evident in GIN cells (Fig. 2D, bottom), but not in FS cells (Fig. 2D, bottom). Finally, at higher stimulus currents, the peak of the first action potential in GIN cells was the most positive in the train and the trough of the first afterhyperpolarization (AHP) was the most negative (Fig. 2C, bottom). By contrast, the action potential heights and AHP magnitudes of FS cells changed little under similar conditions (Fig. 2D, bottom). The firing of GIN cells also differed from that of RS cells, whose second action potential peak was substantially more negative than the first and whose first AHP was the most ...
The behavioral effects of direct electrical stimulation of the cingulum bundle, a white matter tract in the brain, were confirmed in two other epilepsy patients undergoing diagnostic monitoring. The findings are scheduled for publication in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. Videos of the effects of cingulum bundle stimulation are available, with the patients identity obscured.. Emory neurosurgeons see the technique as a potentially transformative way to calm some patients during awake brain surgery, even for people who are not especially anxious. For optimal protection of critical brain functions during surgery, patients may need to be awake and not sedated, so that doctors can talk with them, assess their language skills, and detect impairments that may arise from resection.. Even well-prepared patients may panic during awake surgery, which can be dangerous, says lead author Kelly Bijanki, PhD, assistant professor of neurosurgery. This particular patient was especially prone to it ...

Benefits and concerns. Although the chances of pregnancy with minimal stimulation and natural IVF are lower than with conventional IVF, there are some benefits to consider: Most women can undergo these procedures with conscious sedation rather than general stimulation since only a few eggs are retrieved and a very thin needle is used for retrieval, and theres a lower cost due to less medications and minimal anesthesia.. What a cycle entails. A natural cycle uses no drugs to facilitate egg production except for a single injection to trigger ovulation in anticipation of the egg retrieval. Your doctor may also prescribe an antagonist, a medication to prevent premature ovulation, as well as progesterone supplementation after retrieval in order to prepare the uterus for pregnancy.. During a minimal stimulation IVF cycle, a woman will receive an oral medication (clomiphene citrate - Clomid) in addition to low doses of gonadotropins. A small number of eggs are retrieved and premature ovulation is ...
