So, the Utah electrode array is built out of silicon and it's a very delicate, small device. It's a quarter of an inch on a side. It's composed of a hundred little microneedles that are about an eighth of an inch long that project out from this silicon substrate. Each one these little needles is electrically isolated from its neighboring needles by a mode of glass, so each of these needles serves as an independent electrode. When this device is implanted into the central nervous system or into the peripheral nervous system,.
Each one of these microneedles talks to, or listens to, a group of neurons around the tip of the needle and, so, when the 100electrode array, which contains 100 of these mirconeedles is implanted in the cortex, this device can listen selectively to the neural activity in hundreds of neurons with unprecedented selectivity. Not only can it be used for understanding how the brain processes information, but there are many clinical applications that this technology could be suited for. Historically, neurologists and neurosurgeons see patients who have disorders of the nervous system,.

What are Treatment Options for an Injury
Frequently, I also get asked when I see initial encounter with a patient as to what the treatment options are and how do we progress in the proper direction, and I explain to the patient that our clinical exam is the first thing as to whether we're examining whatever limb it is upper extremity, lowerextremity, knee, shoulder, hand, etc. After we do a clinical physical examination of the location of the patient's complaint, I will frequently send the patient to obtain plain Xrays of the This helps to determine, by doing an Xray, to showing the bony.
Structures. It does not show soft tissue structures due to the fact that the Xrays themselves penetrate through the soft tissue. Xrays are very good at showing bony changes, including fractures, dislocations, arthritic changes in the actual particular joint, if it is a joint. The Xrays also help to show some infectious changes, and they also can bring out tumors, and one of those things is very common sometimes you can see it incidentally on a regular Xray. So, if you do have an injury, whoever you're seeing whether emergency room or the orthopedic surgeon.
You should always have an Xray of that particular aspect in order to determine the aforementioned. Once we have the Xrays, we can add that and incorporate that into a treatment plan. It's very important for the patient to realize that Xrays are just basic data collection tools. Another datacollection tool is an MRI or a PET scan, in which the MRI is looking more specifically at soft tissue. It's very good for looking at tendons, nerves, blood vessels, muscles, and ligaments. It also can show some arthritic changes in the joints when it.
Looks at the actual cartilage. The problem with Xrays and the problem with MRIs is they are indirect views of the tissue and they're subject to interpretation. Just because an MRI says there's nothing wrong doesn't mean there's absolutely nothing wrong, and sometimes it can miss stuff because of the way the actual technique is utilized. I also explain to the patient that the MRI, again, is a datacollection tool. It is not a treatment option. It helps to aid in the treatment, but it doesn't specifically treat you. Similar studies, such as a CAT scan or a bone.
Scan, again, are datacollection tools, and they also aid in the treatment option. One of the most important things to remember as far as obtaining an MRI is that it is a one, specific, static test, meaning the limb cannot be moved and it's only taken in one point in time and one point in space. The physical examination helps to correlate with the actual testing, as far as the radiographs and the MRIs, because this is a dynamic testing, meaning I'm able to move the limb and I'm able to stretch the ligaments. It is ironic sometimes that people think that an MRI.
Chronic pain after breast cancer surgery can last for years
BETTER EFFORTS ARE NEEDED TO PREVENT AND TREAT OBESITY. WHEN A WOMAN UNDERGOES BREAST CANCER SURGERY, THE NUMBER ONE GOAL OBVIOUSLY IS TO ELIMINATE THE DISEASE, BUT SOMETIMES A DEBILITATING SIDE EFFECT OCCURS. CHRONIC PAIN THAT CAN LAST FOR YEARS. MEGAN PRINDLE EXPLAINS IN TONIGHT'S WOMAN'S DOCTOR. MEGAN BETH WHITE IS A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR. SHE HAD A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY IN 2006, BUT WHAT SHE DIDN'T EXPECT AFTERWARDS WAS THE SHOOTING PAIN ON BOTH HER RIGHT AND LEFT SIDES THAT NEVER WENT AWAY. IT FEELS LIKE AN ICE PICK, A HEATED ICE PICK, STABS YOU IN.
YOUR IN YOUR ARMPIT. THE HEAT THE PAIN GOES DOWN TO HEAR. IT GOES FROM THE ARMPIT AND OVER HERE. MEGAN BETH ISN'T ALONE. DR. DAVID MAINE SAYS MANY WOMEN EXPERIENCE WHAT IS CALLED POSTMASTECTOMY PAIN SYNDROME, CHRONIC PAIN AFTER BREAST CANCER SURGERY. IT'S NOT REALLY JUST MISSED ECTOMY'S. REALLY ANY TREATMENT ERECTED TOWARDS THE BREAST, EVEN IF IT IS BREASTCONSERVING THERAPY, CAN RESULT IN CHRONIC PAIN. THE NERVES AROUND THE BREAST OR IN THAT SURROUNDING TISSUE GET INJURED. IT CAN BE ONE NERVE OR MULTIPLE NERVES, AND THAT CAN CAUSE A.
BURNING SENSATION. I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS NATURAL PAIN AND THOUGHT I HAD TO LIVE WITH IT. MEGAN DR. MAIN SAYS YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT. DOCTORS CAN TREAT THE NERVES CAUSING THE PAIN. SOMETIMES, THOSE ARE MEDICATION. SOMETIMES, THOSE ARE SMALL NERVE PROCEDURES. BY PUTTING ANTIINFLAMMATORY ON THAT NERVE AND LOCAL ANESTHETIC AND MAKING SURE THE PAIN GOES AWAY, THAT GIVES US THE DIAGNOSTIC CLARITY WE NEED. SOMETIMES, WE DO MORE PERMANENT PROCEDURES, WHICH CAN INCLUDE CHEMICAL, DESTRUCTIVE PROCEDURES, OR IN SOME CASES, SURGERY. MEGAN SURGERY TO REMOVE DAMAGED.
Difficulty Walking and Loss of Balance Causes and Treatments

2Minute Neuroscience Kneejerk Reflex
Welcome to 2 minute neuroscience, where I simplistically explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this installment I will discuss the kneejerk reflex. The kneejerk reflex, also known as the patellar reflex, is a wellknown example of a simple reflex arc that allows us to maintain posture and balance. Most of us have had our kneejerk reflex tested at a doctor's visit when the doctor taps the tendon just below your kneecap, which is the patellar tendon, with a small hammer. This causes your lower leg to automatically kick outward. If this doesn't happen, or if it happens excessively, it can be an indication.
Of a disorder or of damage to the nervous system. The kneejerk reflex is a simple reflex arc that occurs at the level of the spinal cord in other words, the associated movement occurs without the involvement of the brain the brain receives information about the movement after it has been initiated. When the patellar tendon of the quadriceps muscle is stretched, the stretch is detected by stretch receptors known as muscle spindles that are found in the quadriceps muscle.The muscle spindles stimulate sensory neurons that travel to the spinal cord, where they synapse with motor.
Neurons that control the contraction of the quadriceps muscle. These motor neurons cause immediate contraction of the quadriceps muscle to produce movement of the leg. The kneejerk reflex is considered a monosynaptic reflex because it involves direct connections between sensory neurons and motor neurons, without any neurons in between. Although the reflex is often simplified in diagrams to show only one sensory and one motor neuron, in reality the reflex involves many neurons stretching the quadriceps muscle activates several hundred sensory neurons, each of which makes contact with around 50 motor neurons.
