  • endocrine signal
  • The gastrointestinal tract also harbors an extensive endocrine signaling system, and many gastrointestinal functions are under dual neuronal and endocrine control (Furness et al. (scholarpedia.org)
  • occur
  • Malfunction of the nervous system can occur as a result of genetic defects, physical damage due to trauma or toxicity, infection or simply of ageing. (wikipedia.org)
  • The parasympathetic system is responsible for stimulation of "rest-and-digest" or "feed and breed" activities that occur when the body is at rest, especially after eating, including sexual arousal, salivation, lacrimation (tears), urination, digestion and defecation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Brain
  • Different forms of glial cells have different functions, some acting almost as scaffolding for neuroblasts to climb during neurogenesis such as bergmann glia, while others such as microglia are a specialized form of macrophage, involved in the immune system of the brain as well as the clearance of various metabolites from the brain tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Those are then subdivided into other areas and are also linked to ANS subsystems and nervous systems external to the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • The latter could be either for understanding the brain and the nervous system better or to apply the knowledge gained from the total or partial nervous system to real world applications such as artificial intelligence, Neuroethics or improvements in medical science for society. (wikipedia.org)
  • neuron
  • Once an approach based on the perspective and connectivity is chosen, the models are developed at microscopic (ion and neuron), mesoscopic (functional or population), or macroscopic (system) levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • ganglia
  • The Stomatogastric Nervous System (STNS) is a commonly studied neural network composed of several ganglia in arthropods that controls the motion of the gut and foregut. (wikipedia.org)
  • The system is composed of the stomatogastric ganglion (STG), oesophageal ganglion and the paired commissural ganglia. (wikipedia.org)
  • organ
  • The nervous system is by far the most complex organ in C. elegans . (sfu.ca)
  • Borrelia burgdorferi, the organism responsible for the multisystem infectious disease known as Lyme disease, appears to preferentially affect several organ systems. (uptodate.com)
  • failure
  • This work is a prelude to the full-length album (Nervous System Failure), released through Casket, sub label of Copro, in June 2009. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nervous System Failure is the third full-length album by the Italian band Infernal Poetry (fifth studio-album), released on 25 June 2009 through Casket Records, sub-label of Copro. (wikipedia.org)

  • rhythmic
  • The stomatogastric nervous system of decapod crustaceans, which controls aspects of feeding, has contributed significantly to the general principles guiding our present understanding of how rhythmic motor circuits operate at the cellular level. (wikipedia.org)
  • These networks remain rhythmic in the completely isolated nervous system, even in the absence of all rhythmic neuronal input, including feedback from sensory systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • ANS is counted as one of the main neurohormonal systems that regulate cardiovascular function, including smooth muscle tone. (wikipedia.org)
  • immune system
  • In the late-1990s I, as director of the UW MS Center, collaborated with Dr. Keith Sullivan in developing a research plan to treat patients with MS by 1) harvesting and cryopreserving their blood stem cells, 2) suppressing their immune system using irradiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.

  • central nervou
  • It was found in 2015 that, after an apparent complete cure, with the bloodstream, saliva and organs such as the liver free of the Ebola virus, it can linger on in parts of the body not protected by the immune system, including fluid in the eye, the central nervous system and, in men, the testes and semen. (wikipedia.org)
  • Doctors discovered that, after she had been deemed cured, the virus had remained in her cerebrospinal fluid and feared that it might be in her central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • This suggests a possible systemic component of this disease, despite the predominance of central nervous system features. (wikipedia.org)
  • in 2003 and were introduced in the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of Central Nervous System (CNS) in 2007. (wikipedia.org)
  • Papillary tumors of the central nervous system and particularly of the pineal region are very rare and so diagnosing them is extremely difficult. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, it has a small (1%) risk of seizures and has central nervous system side effects like anxiety and insomnia due to off-target inhibition of the GABAA receptor that the first-generation NSAAs do not have. (wikipedia.org)
  • Very similar to enzalutamide, but with reduced central nervous system distribution and hence is expected to have a reduced risk of seizures and other central side effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Relative to enzalutamide and apalutamide, shows greater efficacy as an AR antagonist, improved activity against mutated AR variants in prostate cancer, little or no inhibition or induction of cytochrome P450 enzymes, and little or no central nervous system distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similar to enzalutamide and apalutamide, but with increased efficacy as an AR antagonist, little or no central nervous system distribution, and no induction of seizures in animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some Phalaris species contain gramine, which can cause brain damage, other organ damage, central nervous system damage and death in sheep although Phalaris aquatica is said to be non-toxic. (wikipedia.org)
  • organ
  • It should also not be confused with multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (sometimes referred to as multiple organ failure), or with multiple organ system failure (an often-fatal complication of septic shock or other very severe illnesses or injuries). (wikipedia.org)
  • people
  • Many people affected by multiple system atrophy experience dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, which commonly manifests as orthostatic hypotension, impotence, loss of sweating, dry mouth and urinary retention and incontinence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Over the course of the novels, Tally struggles to maintain her sense of self within a society that literally alters how people think and ultimately succeeds in undoing the system of mind alteration. (wikipedia.org)
  • sound
  • While growing up, he saw and heard the sound systems of neighborhood parties called dance halls, and the accompanying speech of their DJs, known as toasting. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been suggested that the sound material used by the shaman constitutes a system of sounds. (wikipedia.org)
