163. Laser Temperature-Jump Technique for Relaxation Studies of the Ionic Conductances in Myelinated Nerve Fibers Full Text available with Trip Pro

Laser Temperature-Jump Technique for Relaxation Studies of the Ionic Conductances in Myelinated Nerve Fibers A temperature-jump technique for single nodes of Ranvier has been developed using a pulsed laser system. The temperature perturbation was accomplished by firing the laser beam obtained from a neodymium rod through the solution surrounding a single node. The temperature step was achieved within 1 msec using the laser in the normal mode of operation. During the voltage-clamped steady-state (...) current a temperature jump from 4 degrees C increased the current to a new steady-state value within the time course of the T-jump. This finding suggests that the maximum potassium permeability P(K) has a rapid relaxation time and that the steady-state value of n (the value of potassium permeability divided by its maximum value) is relatively independent of temperature. T-jumps applied during the voltage-clamped sodium currents showed that the sodium permeability changed with a relaxation time

169. Treatment of anxiety: a comparison of the usefulness of self-hypnosis and a meditational relaxation technique. An overview. (Abstract)

Treatment of anxiety: a comparison of the usefulness of self-hypnosis and a meditational relaxation technique. An overview. We have investigated prospectively the efficacy of two nonpharmacologic relaxation techniques in the therapy of anxiety. A simple, meditational relaxation technique (MT) that elicits the changes of decreased sympathetic nervous system activity was compared to a self-hypnosis technique (HT) in which relaxation, with or without altered perceptions, was suggested. 32 patients (...) , was designed as the control group. Patients were instructed to practice the assigned technique daily for 8 weeks. Change in anxiety was determined by three types of evaluation: psychiatric assessment; physiologic testing; and self-assessment. There was essentially no difference between the two techniques in therapeutic efficacy according to these evaluations. Psychiatric assessment revealed overall improvement in 34% of the patients and the self-rating assessment indicated improvement in 63

172. Effects of progressive muscle relaxation on cerebral activity: An fMRI investigation. (Abstract)

Effects of progressive muscle relaxation on cerebral activity: An fMRI investigation. Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) is one of the self-management relaxation techniques that can be used in the general population and patients with specific issues. However, no study to date has revealed the brain activity associated with PMR. Therefore, we assessed the changes in brain activity induced by PMR using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).We conducted an intervention study with PMR (...) and control sessions. The subjects were twelve healthy adult men who had no prior experience of PMR.Subjects performed a control session in which muscles were repeatedly simply tensed and relaxed. Subsequently, a PMR session took place, during which muscle tension was reduced through a systematic procedure of tensing and relaxing of muscle groups combined with structured breathing.We identified and visualised brain activity based on individual and group-level analysis of fMRI data.Eleven subjects' data

180. Adsorbate-induced lifting of substrate relaxation is a general mechanism governing titania surface chemistry Full Text available with Trip Pro

and dissociation of molecules on oxidic substrates. For a specific example, methanol adsorbed on the rutile TiO2(110) single crystal surface, we demonstrate by using a combination of experimental and theoretical techniques that strongly bonding adsorbates can lift surface relaxations beyond their adsorption site, which leads to a significant substrate-mediated interaction between adsorbates. The result is a complex superstructure consisting of pairs of methanol molecules and unoccupied adsorption sites (...) Adsorbate-induced lifting of substrate relaxation is a general mechanism governing titania surface chemistry Under ambient conditions, almost all metals are coated by an oxide. These coatings, the result of a chemical reaction, are not passive. Many of them bind, activate and modify adsorbed molecules, processes that are exploited, for example, in heterogeneous catalysis and photochemistry. Here we report an effect of general importance that governs the bonding, structure formation
