Sensory testing, by providing stimuli for nociceptors of the foot, is a popular method of evaluating sensory regeneration after damage to the sciatic nerve in the rat. In the following study, 20 rats were submitted to double transection of the sciatic nerve. The subsequent 14 mm gap was repaired...
Following stepping in place on a rotating treadmill, subjects inadvertently rotate when asked to step in place without vision. This response is called podokinetic after-rotation (PKAR). The purpose of this study was to determine whether PKAR transfers across tasks with different lower limb...
Considerable information about the texture of objects can be perceived remotely through a probe. It is not clear, however, how texture perception with a probe compares with texture perception with the bare finger. Here we investigate the perception of a variety of textured surfaces encountered...
C- fos is an immediate-early gene whose expression in the spinal cord has been extensively used as a marker of peripheral noxious stimulation. The Fos protein accumulates in the nuclei of spinal neurons, reaching detectable levels 2 h after stimulation. The ERK pathway is an important signalling...
The longstanding question of whether temperature is sensed via separate sensory systems for warmth and cold was investigated by measuring individual differences in perception of nonpainful heating and cooling. Sixty-two subjects gave separate ratings of the intensity of thermal sensations...
To assess if multiple sclerosis patients with proprioceptive impairment are specifically affected during quiet standing with eyes open and how they can develop motor compensatory processes, 56 patients, classified from sensory clinical tests as ataxo-spastic (MS-AS) or only having spasticity...
Many children with autistic spectrum disorders have unusual reactions to certain sensory stimuli. These reactions vary along a hyper- to hypo-responsivity continuum. For example, some children overreact to weak sensory input, but others do not respond negatively to even strong stimuli. It is...
The role of the capsule encasing the Pacinian corpuscle's (PC's) neurite, where mechanotransduction occurs, may be more than mechanical. The inner core of the PC's capsule consists of lamellar cells that are of Schwann-cell origin. Previously, we found both voltage-gated Na + and K + channels in...
