Most of knowledge on muscle radicular innervation was from explorations in root/spinal cord pathologies. Direct and individual access to each of the lumbar-sacral -ventral and dorsal- nerve roots during dorsal rhizotomy for spastic diplegia allows precise study of the corresponding muscle innervation. Authors report the lumbo-sacral segmental myotomal organization obtained from recordings of muscle responses to root stimulation in a 20-children prospective series.

Pulsed radiofrequency stimulation at the dorsal root ganglion is used for treatment of radicular pain; however, its mechanism for neuropathic pain treatment has not been fully elucidated. Here, we inv...
The insular cortex plays a key role in the integration of multimodal information and in interoceptive and exteroceptive processing. For instance, neurons in the central dorsal insula that are active d...
Electrical stimulation to segmental dorsal cutaneous nerves (DCNs) activates a nociceptive sensorimotor reflex and the same afferent stimulation also evokes blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) res...
Descending neuromodulators from the brainstem play a major role in the development and regulation of spinal sensorimotor functions. Here, the contribution of serotonergic signaling in the lumbar spina...
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) for faecal incontinence (FI) at sub-sensory amplitude as low as 50% of sensory threshold has been found to be effective at 3-months follow-up. Furthermore, alternative p...
In this study, we try to evaluate the effect of using ALA as an adjuvant treatment in patients scheduled for pulsed radiofrequency treatment (PRFT) of the affected dorsal root ganglion (DR...
The aim of the study is to evaluate the feasibility and validity of conventional radiographs of the lumbo-sacral spine when the patient is lying on a special table which facilitates maxima...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of sacral nerve magnetic stimulation on the colonic motility in healthy subjects, in incontinent and constipated patients.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of PRF treatment adjacent to the lumbar dorsal root ganglion (DRG) of L5 or S1 in patients with a chronic lumbosacral radicular syndrome ...
Despite much popularity among the public, magnetic devices used for the treatment of various musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain syndromes have been the subject of few randomized controll...
Prolonged failure of muscle relaxation after contraction. This may occur after voluntary contractions, muscle percussion, or electrical stimulation of the muscle. Myotonia is a characteristic feature of MYOTONIC DISORDERS.
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.
A nerve which originates in the sacral spinal cord (S2 to S4) and innervates the PERINEUM, the external GENITALIA, the external ANAL SPHINCTER and the external urethral sphincter. It has three major branches: the perineal nerve, inferior anal nerves, and the dorsal nerve of penis or clitoris.
The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.
Learned expectation that one's responses are independent of reward and, hence, do not predict or control the occurrence of rewards. Learned helplessness derives from a history, experimentally induced or naturally occurring, of having received punishment/aversive stimulation regardless of responses made. Such circumstances result in an impaired ability to learn. Used for human or animal populations. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)

Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
