Effects of mental imagery training combined electromyogram-triggered neuromuscular electrical stimulation on upper limb function and activities of daily living in patients with chronic stroke: a randomized controlled trial.

Previous studies have suggested that electromyogram-triggered neuromuscular electrical stimulation is beneficial in enhancing the upper limb function of patients with stroke. However, mental imagery t...

Adaptation effects of medial forebrain bundle micro-electrical stimulation.

Brain micro-electrical stimulation and its applications are among the most important issues in the field of brain science and neurophysiology. Deep brain stimulation techniques have been used in diffe...

Contralateral Segmental Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation Inhibits Nociceptive Flexion Reflex in Healthy Participants.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive treatment to relieve pain. Contralateral TENS (i.e., TENS administered to the contralateral side of a painful body part) is benefic...

Proteomics and Transcriptomics Analysis Reveals Clues into the Mechanism of the Beneficial Effect of Electrical Stimulation on Rat Denervated Gastrocnemius Muscle.

The aim of this study was to confirm the beneficial effects of electrical stimulation on denervated skeletal muscle and explore a novel underlying mechanism.

Awake Testing during Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery Predicts Postoperative Stimulation Side Effect Thresholds.

Despite substantial experience with deep brain stimulation for movement disorders and recent interest in electrode targeting under general anesthesia, little is known about whether awake macrostimulat...

Relief From Side Effects: Clinical Use of Electrodes With Direction

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) uses electrical pulses sent through a lead (insulated wire) to help stop unwanted symptoms in a variety of brain diseases, including the tremor seen in patient...

Transcutaneous Electrical Diaphragmatic Stimulation and Inspiratory Muscle Training in Patients With COPD Exacerbated

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterized by chronic airflow limitation, a qualification of impairment of respiratory muscle function, including hyperinflation and musc...

CCFES + tDCS for Motor Control

This pilot study for stroke patients with chronic upper limb hemiplegia will examine the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation and neuromuscular electrical stimulation on hand motor co...

Facial Function Reanimation by Electrical Pacing in Unilateral Facial Paralysis.

Purpose of the trial is to study the activations of paralyzed facial muscles in a unilateral facial nerve palsy with a multi-channel electrical stimulator. The principle of the device is t...

Transabdominal Electrical Stimulation for Constipation

Several transabdominal electrical stimulation studies have been reported for constipation in childhood. This study aims to assess the efficacy of this technique in adults with chronic cons...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

An antihelminthic drug that has been tried experimentally in rheumatic disorders where it apparently restores the immune response by increasing macrophage chemotaxis and T-lymphocyte function. Paradoxically, this immune enhancement appears to be beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis where dermatitis, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia, and nausea and vomiting have been reported as side effects. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p435-6)

Biphasic dose responses of cells or organisms (including microorganisms) to an exogenous or intrinsic factor, in which the factor induces stimulatory or beneficial effects at low doses and inhibitory or adverse effects at high doses.

A potent second-generation histamine H1 antagonist that is effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, chronic urticaria, and pollen-induced asthma. Unlike many traditional antihistamines, it does not cause drowsiness or anticholinergic side effects.

A long-acting, non-sedative antihistaminic used in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis, and chronic idiopathic urticaria. The drug is well tolerated and has no anticholinergic side effects.
