In May 2016, it was proposed by the US athletes of the National Basketball Association (NBA) on television that the nociceptive-sympathetic coupling be required for pain sensations. Later, it was demonstrated that, via the activation of sympathetic outputs directly by the nociceptive neurons in laminae I and V of the dorsal spinal horn as well as those in periaqueductal grey (PAG) of brain, it was completed the nociceptive-sympathetic coupling in vertebrates. In this article, for the evolutionar...

The objective of the study was to establish the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD) on nurses’ productivity in Kakamega County. The study was a descriptive cross-sectional study and quantitative methods were adopted. The study was carried out in hospitals in Kakamega county Kenya. A self-administered questionnaire (The standardized Nordic questionnaire) was used to gather information from randomly selected nurses (n = 130). Data were presented using descriptive statistic...

The objective of the study was to investigate nurses’ awareness of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD) in Kakamega county. The study was a descriptive cross-sectional study and Quantitative methods were adopted. The study was carried out in hospitals in Kakamega county Kenya. A self-administered questionnaire was used to gather information from randomly selected nurses (n = 130). Data was presented using descriptive statistics in the form of frequencies and percentages for categorical...

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s) are any disorder in a brain’s functionality that can be caused by numerous reasons, including motor-vehicle crashes, falls, and assaults. Impractical in-vivo head injury experiments compel bio- engineers to develop a robust, accurate, and efficient computer model. In this study, bovine brain samples were tested under a confined compression testing machine. Consequently, the result from unconfined compression tests, at quasi-static strain rates of ε=0.0004...

Sub-Saharan Africa has the worst global shortage of health professionals. The use of eLearning interventions, that lead to increased interactions according to the Interaction Equivalency theorem, is a potential means of addressing this shortage of health professionals. In this audit we set out to determine the effect of an eLearning general histology and general embryology intervention on student’s summative examination scores. The audit compared the written and practical summative examination s...

In May 2016, it was suggested by the US athletes playing games of National Basketball Association (NBA) in television that the pain sensation might result from the post-sensory nociceptive-sympathetic coupling. In this re-view, it is attempted to newly delineate the underlying neural pathways for this post-sensory nociceptive-sympathetic coupling. Based on the con-temporary feedback neural circuits of pain transmission in spinal c

Background: Identification is of importance for any crime investigation. Among several other methods, lip prints, if available, should also be evalu-ated to point out the relationship between the individual and the committed crimes. Lip print evaluation is known as “cheiloscopy” and important for forensic anthropologists in identification process since they are unique for each individual as fingerprints. Sex estimation is from lip

Background: The septum pellucidum is a vertical double membrane, extending from the lower surface of the corpus callosum to the fornix. Cavum septi pellu-cidi (CSP) is a cavity formation between the two membranes that separate the septum pellucidum from the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle. Cavum vergae (CV) is the extension of the cavity between the two leaflets posterior to the splenium of the corpus callosum. In addition,

Introduction: Determination of hand skill rate is thought to be important
for the functional evaluation of nervous system. Therefore, hand skill
performance monitoring could be a reliable measure for the effect of
audio-visual medical teaching on central nervous system. The aim of this study
was to evaluate the effect of mental activity on the hand skill rate
performance ability following one hour
audio-visual medical teaching. Methods: Participants were 34 healthy screened
right handed voluntee...

Besides the medical education, simulations became an attractive
diagnostic method in some clinical cases. Recent advances in computerized image
processing bring new practices entitled as “patient specific simulation” to the
agenda. One of the successful applications which examines hemodynamic forces as
a result of the interaction between blood flow and vessel wall constitutes the
topic of this study. In this study, the terms and laws which provided a
theoretical basis for the hemodynamic forces ...
