Skin temperature is a relevant and effective indicator for objective evaluation of human sensations and thermal states according to the surrounding thermal stresses. Managed by skin blood flow, sympathetic nervous system (constriction and sweating), subcutaneous thermal structure and facial vein patterns, facial coetaneous temperature variability can give information non- invasively on many physiological functions. These informations are deduced from thermal ...

We propose a communication aid that uses sympathetic skin response (SSR) as the input indicator for a device that will assist the disabled. To this end, we used subjects who engaged in character selection while listening to four sounds [white noise, J-POP (Vocal), J-POP (Less-Vocal), and Classical], in order to clarify the influence of sound. Although sound had a weak ...

Power spectral analysis (PSA) of heart rate variability (HRV) is being used to assess autonomic function. We have examined the effect on HRV-PSA of subarachnoid block (SAB) and acute selective block of the vagus (parasympathetic) by intravenous atropine. Six patients, aged 64-83 years, received SAB. Atropine (0.6 mg) was given after 30 minutes. Using the electrocardiogram signal, PSA was performed ...

Typically 123I-MIBG is used for the study of innervation and function of the sympathetic nervous system in heart failure. The protocol involves two studies: first a planar or SPECT scan is performed to measure initial uptake of the tracer, followed some 3-4 hours later by another study measuring the wash-out of the tracer from the heart. A fast wash-out is ...

  • Excitable Tissue

    The nervous system includes voluntary and autonomic (sympathetic and parasympathetic) systems. This book is devoted almost entirely to the voluntary system. The system consists mostly of excitable tissue¿¿-¿¿sensory receptors, neuron cell bodies, axons, and muscle fibers. If you step on a sharp object, it stimulates sensory receptors that in turn stimulate neurons; the latter send action potentials (APs) via axons to interneurons and motoneurons in the spinal cord. The motoneurons send APs to the appropriate muscles, which contract so as to make you jump off the object. Some of the activity involves atomic dimensions and, because distances are so small, time intervals are correspondingly small. It takes a factor of about 107 to transform atomic distances into dimensions that are familiar to us. For example, most atoms and simple compounds, if magnified by 107, turn out to be 3 mm (0.12 in.) in diameter. One centimeter multiplied by 107 equals 100 km (62 mi.). In time, one second multiplied by 107 is almost equal to 4 months. Sensory receptors are usually at rest when they are unstimulated. Neuron cell bodies are at rest when they are not generating APs, while muscle fibers and axons are at rest when they are not carrying APs (that is, no APs are propagating along the muscle fiber or axon). Body tissues are bathed in fluid that has an excess of sodium and chloride ions. Internally, excitable tissue at rest has an excess of potassium and large organic negative ions. This external-internal combination forms a battery that makes the inside of the tissue 60 to 90 mV more negative than the outside. The electric field across the membrane is very high¿¿-¿¿up to 12,000 V/mm. The physiologically compatible ionic concentrations are maintained by sodium and potassium pumps.
