Visceral Sensory Neuroscience: Interoception by Oliver G. Cameron M.D. Ph.D., W.D. Hamilton, Jonathan PDF

It's been identified for over a century that there's an afferent(body-to-brain), in addition to an efferent(brain-to-body), component of the visceral-atonomic fearful method. regardless of the elemental significance of physically afferent info- also known as interoception- to principal fearful procedure keep an eye on of visceral organ functionality, emotional-motivational tactics, and disorder of those tactics, together with psychosomatic issues, its position didn't obtain a lot recognition until eventually really lately.

Example text

Specific Aim 1 will examine the impact of repetitive intermittent hypoxia during sleep on carotid body function in a novel, murine model of sleep disordered breathing. Specific Aim 2 will investigate the pattern of acetylcholine and other neurotransmitter release from the carotid body, as well as recording carotid sinus nerve activity, in response to repetitive intermittent hypoxia. Specific Aim 3 will use immunohistochemical and patch clamp analyses to determine if neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) can account for differential hypoxic responsiveness between mouse strains with differential hypoxic responsiveness and determine whether repetitive intermittent hypoxia upregulates expression of subtypes of nAChRs.

A second dog model as well as human patients with chronic heart failure will be studied to address the mechanisms of Cheyne-Stokes respiration, with specific emphasis on the effects of the added stimulus to hyperventilation originating from the lungs of the patient in congestive heart failure. Finally, we will use dogs and humans-with and without innervated lungs-to address the role of non-chemical, mechanoreceptor inhibitory feedback effects during sleep on upper airway and pump muscles; a) influences from high frequency low amplitude pressure oscillations in the upper airway; b) the effects of amplitude, timing and duration of normocapnic mechanical ventilation on the resetting of inherent respiratory rhythm and on the "shortterm inhibition" of respiratory motor output following cessation of phasic inhibitory sensory input.

Because up to 30% of patients with epilepsy continue to have seizures despite appropriate treatment with antiepileptic medications, additional interventions to improve seizure control are needed. One approach to improving seizure control is to treat coexisting sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may exacerbate seizures via sleep fragmentation, sleep deprivation, or other pathophysiological processes that have not yet been determined. The investigators recently documented that OSA is common in epilepsy patients with seizures refractory to medical treatment.
