• impulses
  • This was the long sought after mechanism by which the nose transforms chemical signals (odor molecules) into electrical ones (nerve impulses). (firstnerve.com)
  • The measurement of a temperature pulse and the claimed absence of heat release during an action potential were the basis of the proposal that nerve impulses are an adiabatic phenomenon much like sound waves. (wikipedia.org)
  • bulbs
  • Are you sure you want to remove Comparison of the number nerve cells in the olfactory bulbs of domesticated albino and wild Norway rats from your list? (openlibrary.org)
  • If the problem persists or causes significant discomfort, a doctor might recommend nasal saline drops, antidepressant or anticonvulsant medications, anesthesia to parts of the nose, or in very rare circumstances, surgical procedures to remove the olfactory nerves or bulbs. (wikipedia.org)
  • There, it migrates to the olfactory bulbs and subsequently other regions of the brain, where it feeds on the nerve tissue, resulting in significant necrosis and bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • optic nerve
  • Glaucoma is the term used to describe a group diseases characterised by a specific type of damage to the optic nerve head (ONH) known as cupping and a characteristic type of visual field loss. (bl.uk)
  • We injected OEC into glaucomatous rat eyes to study the effects of OEC on optic nerve damage. (bl.uk)
  • The presence of OEC in the vitreous cavity of the glaucomatous rat eye significantly reduced the optic nerve damage in glaucomatous eyes. (bl.uk)
  • Injury
  • This project was aimed at investigating olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC), a population of radial glia proven to be neuroprotective in central and peripheral nerve injury models, and their potential to protect the retinal ganglion cells in glaucoma. (bl.uk)
  • occur
  • Lesions to the olfactory nerve can occur because of "blunt trauma", such as coup-contra-coup damage, meningitis, and tumors of the frontal lobe of the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • Naegleria fowleri propagates in warm, stagnant bodies of freshwater (typically during the summer months), and enters the central nervous system after insufflation of infected water by attaching itself to the olfactory nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • system
  • Taken together, N. meningitidis is able to pass directly from nasopharynx to meninges through the olfactory nerve system. (diva-portal.org)
  • The nasal olfactory nerve system may be a novel target for disease prevention that can improve outcome and survival. (diva-portal.org)
  • Olfactory information is further processed and projected through a pathway to the central nervous system (CNS), which controls emotions and behavior as well as basic thought processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • The olfactory system does not interpret a single compound, but instead the whole odorous mix, not necessarily corresponding to concentration or intensity of any single constituent. (wikipedia.org)
  • results
  • An action potential traveling along a mixed nerve results in a slight increase in temperature followed by a decrease in temperature. (wikipedia.org)
  • navigation
  • It was here where he first started his research on pigeon homing, which led him to the discoveries of the effects of the earth's magnetic field, the position of the sun, as well as olfactory navigation and visual cues involved in the process that pigeons use to find their way home. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many scientists speculated ideas about the devices pigeons were using including the use of the position of the sun, the earth's magnetic field, and landmark recognition and olfactory navigation. (wikipedia.org)
  • several
  • Ichiji Tasaki pioneered a thermodynamic approach to the phenomenon of nerve pulse propagation which identified several phenomena that were not included in the Hodgkin-Huxley model. (wikipedia.org)
