Cocaine blocks the initiation or conduction of nerve impulses following local application by blocking depolarization via sodium influx inhibition.
The results show a dislocation of the nanotube indicative of a possible disassembly process that may influence the channel conduction .
Carbon nanotubes, unmodified (pristine) and modified through charged atoms, were simulated in water, and their water conduction rates determined.
After nerve conduction tests the diagnosis was peripheral sensory neuropathy.
A hot copper cube in contact with a cold iron cube would, for example, heat it primarily by conduction .
In a subset of patients monitored by serial testing, abnormalities in phrenic nerve conduction and diaphragmatic excursion normalized by 9 months after surgery.
This is achieved by the propagation of the chemotactic signal, in a manner rather similar to the conduction of a nerve impulse.
Physical examination was supplemented by laboratory tests, which included pulmonary function and peripheral nerve conduction .
Now physicists at Northwestern University show that, using the fact that electrons carry heat as well as charge, the conduction of heat may be similarly tuned.
Deafness, therefore, is caused by conduction deafness.
