Hypertrophic olivary degeneration: a comprehensive review focusing on etiology.

Hypertrophic olivary degeneration (HOD) is a rare form of trans-synaptic degeneration characterized by hypertrophy of the inferior olivary nucleus situated in the olivary body, part of the medulla obl...

Quasiperiodic rhythms of the inferior olive.

Inferior olivary activity causes both short-term and long-term changes in cerebellar output underlying motor performance and motor learning. Many of its neurons engage in coherent subthreshold oscilla...

Graded error signals in eyeblink conditioning.

Minimizing errors is an important aspect of learning. However, it is not enough merely to record if an error occurred. For efficient learning, information about the magnitude of errors is critical. Di...

Olivary hypertrophy improved by steroid treatment: Two case reports with unique presentations.

Olivary hypertrophy (OH) is the secondary degeneration of the inferior olivary nucleus (ION). It is observed one month after the onset of a primary lesion within the dento-rubro-olivary pathway and is...

Effect of Alcohol on Tremors

Tremors are involuntary movements of a part or parts of the body that occur because of alternating contraction and relaxation of muscles. The causes behind most tremors are poorly underst...

Assessment of the Changes in Cortical and Medullary Renal Blood Flow During Exercise in Healthy Subjects Using Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound

Renal parenchymal blood flow can be divided in cortical and medullary blood flow. Changes and factors affecting renal medullary blood flow have not been studied in detail previously as inv...

Degenerative Spondylolisthesis; Micro-decompression Alone vs Decompression Plus Instrumented Fusion

In many countries a majority of patients with degenerative spondylolisthesis are operated on with decompression plus instrumented fusion, but the scientific evidence for adding fusion is c...

Evaluating the User Performance and Experience of Nucleus Pen vs. Commercially Available Pen Needle

This is a multi-site, prospective, open-label, randomized, 2 period cross over study comparing the subjects' current 32G pen needle (four groups of pen needles) to the BD Nucleus pen needl...

Posterior Assisted Levitation of Dropped Nucleus

Drooping of nucleus is a common complication during cataract extraction by phacoemulsification. The investigators describe a new technique to retrieve the dropped nucleus by using an instr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The brain stem nucleus that receives the central input from the cochlear nerve. The cochlear nucleus is located lateral and dorsolateral to the inferior cerebellar peduncles and is functionally divided into dorsal and ventral parts. It is tonotopically organized, performs the first stage of central auditory processing, and projects (directly or indirectly) to higher auditory areas including the superior olivary nuclei, the medial geniculi, the inferior colliculi, and the auditory cortex.

A part of the MEDULLA OBLONGATA situated in the olivary body. It is involved with motor control and is a major source of sensory input to the CEREBELLUM.

A transition zone in the anterior part of the diencephalon interposed between the thalamus, hypothalamus, and tegmentum of the mesencephalon. Components of the subthalamus include the SUBTHALAMIC NUCLEUS, zona incerta, nucleus of field H, and the nucleus of ansa lenticularis. The latter contains the ENTOPEDUNCULAR NUCLEUS.

A nucleus in the medullary Raphe nuclei located rostral to the NUCLEUS RAPHE OBSCURUS and caudal to the NUCLEUS RAPHE MAGNUS.

An auditory brainstem structure in the pontine tegmentum that contains several nuclei associated with auditory localization and is component of ascending and descending auditory pathways.
