  • Neuronetics Case Study

    Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy, where magnetic fields are used for therapeutic applications in disorders related to central nervous system. In 2003, they licensed a revolutionary patented coil design from Emory University and conducted the largest clinical trials on TMS therapy to date. With continuous research and development, a high quality, efficient, user friendly and cost effective unit-NeuroStar TMS therapy system has been developed, for treating Major Depressive Disorder. TMS Therapy is a non-invasive, non-systemic computerized medical device that treats depression using a highly focused, pulsed magnetic field…

  • Electro Diagnostic Testing Essay

    Nerves and muscles in the body send electrical signals throughout the body- sending and receiving messages to the brain. Electro diagnostic testing helps the doctor to get a better understanding of how those electrical signals are functioning in the body. There are two types of electro diagnostic testing; Electromyography, more commonly known as an EMG, and Nerve Conduction Studies, or NCS. An EMG allows the doctor to monitor and understand the electrical action that takes place within the body.…

  • Sciatic Nerve Experiment

    differences and the relationships of the isolated sciatic nerve in regards to the compound action potential and the neuromuscular junction stimulations of the Rana pipens gastrocnemius. A total of five exercises were used to identify the effects on the stimulation of the sciatic nerve and the gastrocnemius. A dissection for both labs were performed to isolate the nerve and to isolate the gastrocnemius. Both experiments used LabChart to perform various stimulations on the sciatic nerve and the…

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    A nerve cell is also called a motor neuron, which is made from a cell body, an axon and axon terminals. The cell body contains a nucleus and dendrites that receive the signals and send it down the axon that is covered in myelin sheath. The axon terminals are connected to the muscles creating a neuromuscular junction. This is where the signal is relayed to the muscle. There are two groups of motor neurons: upper and lower. Upper motor neurons are those found in the brain and lower motor neurons…
