2013-04-05 11:23:20

Watch the video "Measuring a Crocodile's Smile" redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The ultra-sensitive nerves in the faces of crocodilians could help biologists understand how both modern and ancient animals interact with their environment, according to a new study in this month´s edition of The Anatomical Record. These nerves are so sensitive that they can detect changes in a pond when a single droplet of water hits the surface several feet away....

Research work drawn up by specialists from the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at the University of Navarra Hospital has shown that, after surgical treatment for facial paralysis through using muscular transplant and nervous transposition (connection of facial muscle to a nerve different from the injured facial nerve), the brain of a woman — in comparison to that of a male - manages to adapt itself better, recovers the spontaneous smile and has a greater time...

Years after injury, intensive exercise brings improvement A research study conducted at Washington State University Spokane offers hope to those suffering from facial nerve damage. According to the study, which was published online this week in the journal Developmental Neurohabilitation, muscle weakness resulting from facial nerve damage incurred during childhood can improve with intensive facial exercise, years after injury. "Our study shows that there isn't just a one-year window for...

Surgeons from UC Davis Medical Center have demonstrated that artificial muscles can restore the ability of patients with facial paralysis to blink, a development that could benefit the thousands of people each year who no longer are able to close their eyelids due to combat-related injuries, stroke, nerve injury or facial surgery. In addition, the technique, which uses a combination of electrode leads and silicon polymers, could be used to develop synthetic muscles to control other parts of...

Nov. 22, 2005 - A recent study in the journal Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound presents the first description of the anatomy of a dog's cranial nerves (CN), a once difficult procedure now made possible by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a diagnostic modality. "By knowing the normal MRI anatomy of cranial nerve emergences in the dog, the clinician will better recognize lesions affecting those nerves, such as inflammatory or neoplastic diseases, thus allowing earlier recognition...

Midbrain
2013-07-25 15:13:23

The midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon is the part of the brain most responsible for vision, motor control, arousal, temperature regulation, alertness and hearing. Formation and Orientation The midbrain is found under the cerebral cortex and above the hindbrain. The mesencephalon is not divided into any other portions of the brain unlike the other two vesicles that stem from the neural tube. There are four separate lobes on the side of the cerebral aqueduct within the...

Salivary glands
2013-03-04 15:44:29

Salivary glands are glands that produce both saliva and the enzyme that turns starch into maltose, called amylase. Formation and Orientation There are five separate glands that make up the salivary gland system. First, the parotid gland is the largest of the salivary glands, secreting saliva through Stensen’s ducts to help with the breakdown of food in the mouth (mastication). The submandibular glands are situated beneath the lower jaws over the digastric muscles. This gland secretes...
