Questions related to Neurourology
It is widely believed that humorous environments help students' learning by relaxing them and easing their stress. However, I would like to know whether laughter really , physically affects brain functions during learning/focusing/ memorizing etc.
All tests and imaging show patient is healthy and has no visible abnormalities. Patient has headaches once a week that are triggered by vaso-dilation type stimuli (i.e hot weather, sugar, foods with nitric oxide). Patient's headaches are mitigated by vaso-constrictive stimuli (i.e. antihistamines, caffeine) but the headaches still contribute to lower quality of life when headache occurs.
Is it possible to extend the definition of a kind of consciousness for plants, fungi and bacteria?
I am looking for any logical answer, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Is there any difference between "Resting state", "Spontaneous activity of the brain" and "Default mode network"?
there are some theories that we can get required signals by EMG from that organ when it is inuse. so we can design orbits that do that movement in the same situation.by this way perhaps we need less wires and have more beautiful thing!
I want to convert Blood perfusion unit (BPU) measured by ADinstrument Laser Doppler Flowmeter (Blood FlowMeter) into Cerebral Blood flow rate in mL/100g/Min.
Is it possible or not. If possible then how ?
In an EEG study, I am trying to compare the brain networks of 3 motor tasks while functional interactions are measured by 3 estimators coherence (Coh), imaginary part of coherence (iCoh) and partial coherence (pCoh). My results show that for task 1, more connections are achieved by Coh (denser network), for task 2 more connections are achieved by iCoh and for task 3 more connections are achieved by pCoh. Regardless of other steps and methodological considerations of this research, is there any explanation for this behavior of connectivity estimators? Is there any reference regarding this issue?
Hi, I am searching for a good protocol to measure the Blood brain barrier permeability in mice model without using the Evans blue dye.
Can any one give me a data set of a person's EEG who has experienced the process of death? (About the during of data set we mean it it must include five minutes before and five minute after the event of death).
I have a question regarding the use of control as follows:
Although it is quite usual to setup 2 groups of animals (one for experiment, and the other for control), there is some paper/studies comparing between the 2 brain hemispheres (i.e. using one side of the brain as the experimental group while the contra-lateral side used as a control).
I was wondering what would be the advantages of using the other hemisphere as the control? Wouldn't the differences between 2 hemispheres (e.g. the functional differences between 2 brain hemispheres in human) make this control invalid?
If there is a choice between using individual or contra-lateral hemisphere as the control (while the study is not mainly comparing the differences between the cerebral hemispheres), then which way would be the preferred choice?
In a study of extra-intestinal symptoms in IBS patients we found that thigh pain, muscle and joint pain, and back pain are more frequent in IBS-C than IBS-D and IBS-M. What could be the underlying mechanism for such association?
Mirror neuron and facial expressions when watching TV.
I would like to ask if there is a benchmark dataset with video samples that is shown in human subjects and induce specific emotions-moods-sentiments (happiness, sadness, anger, etc)?
The purpose of my work is to gather a group of people and monitor their reactions with a face expression software when watching specific videos.
The experiment would look like clockwork orange movie:
