At What Age Does Dendrite Development Stops
It might be ongoing: While big neurological changes happen in childhood, emerging research in neurobiology indicates that dendrites and axons continue to change, adapt, and develop throughout the lifespan. Some of the studies point to age being less of a factor in cessation of neurological development, with environment (e.g., lack of ongoing learning that could promote maintenance/ growth) being more of a factor. ...Read more
How can I stop my friend from sniffing dendrite (a glue consisting toluene and other intoxicants)?
You can't: You cannot assume responsibility for another person's poor health decisions. What you CAN do is offer to share other meaningful and fun activities with this person. Don't nag or criticize, and simply hope that this person will walk away from it like most others who experiment with glue sniffing. ...Read more
Anatomy of neuron: All these are anatomy (and physiology) of neuron or nerve cell. 'dendrite' is branched projections of neuron which receives electrical signals, when a group of neurons are clumped together the site is called 'ganglion', and the ' synapse' is the junction of neuron that communicates with the target cell (or other neuron) by releasing a chemical transmitter to activate the other cell. ...Read more
I read on the NY Times website that alcohol does not kill neurons, but instead damages the dendrites. Will dendrites heal if damaged?
Dendrites = neurons: Dendrites are part of the neuron. Alcohol damages neural transmission and neurons. The cumulative effects of alcohol are largely irreversible. Medical advice shoudl comes from a physician (a neurologist in this case) instead of a newspaper. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/alcoholismandalcoholabuse. Html ...Read more
How can I prevent my friend from sniffing dendrite (a glue consisting toluene and other intoxicants)?
You can't: The best you can do is be a friend. Nagging a person to give up something they probably already know isn't wise doesn't help and gets resented. Offer that person something better to do. There is nothing good about sniffing glue, but most people don't die of it and probably don't even get seriously damaged. Don't endanger the friendship -- you may be this person's one true friend after all. ...Read more
If the immune system attacked killed the neurons cell body axons dendrites nerves throughout the body is it possible and what diagnosis would this be?
Complicated: This description is quite improbable and sounds as it the person may be deceased. If you are having neurological deficiencies stronglysuggest that you see a neurologist and be evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more
Is it possible to have ocular HSV without dendrites seen in the flueroscein blue light test? Thanks,
Ocular HSV: Can cause Herpes Simplex Keratitis (infection of the cornea) among other issues with the structures of the eye. When infecting the cornea, the virus can affect the epithelium and will have classic dendrites on corneal staining. But if the virus infects the cornea stroma, without epithelial involvement, then their will be no staining on biomicroscopy. ...Read more
Could lidocaine block the na channels at the ap or at the dendrites (before or after the axon hillock). Is it possible an ap fires?
Nonspecific: Na channell blockade is a characteristic of lidocaine, that what allows it's use not only as a local anesthetic, but as antiarrhythmic agent as well. Although I must admit that I did not completely understand your question, the answer is yes, to my opinion. Hopefully you will be helped more by my colleagues, good luck. ...Read more
Is it possible to have such mild ocular HSV that it doesn't show dendrites in the flueroscein blue light test? How to get a diagnosis in this case?
Yes: Only an ophalmologist can use high tech. Equipment to tell. ...Read more
Can you use a viral culture on ocular HSV that does not show dendrites or lesions in the fluorescein blue-light test, presenting with eyelid pain?
Will the use of Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) eye drops, for 2 days (one drop four times daily) definitely cause dendrites in non-stromal-keratitis ocular HSV?
No: Not likely but definitely wise to use prophylactic anti-viral just in case. ...Read more
Are exfoliative cheilitis and dry skin, indicates dendritic cell death on people with HIV infection? Are the two of those were HIV symptoms?
No: Hiv infects the t-helper cells and leads to their depletion. It does not affect the dendritic cells. Cheilitis or linear ulcers at corner of lips has a lot of causes including zinc deficiency and not necessarily indicative of hiv. Neither is dry skin. It's no more common in persons with HIV than the next person. ...Read more

Yes, sometimes: Methotrexate is a first line therapy for RA in the us and most other therapies are combined with Methotrexate unless it cannot be used. If inflammation is continuing the addition of a biologic agent (humira, enbrel, (etanercept) simponi) may help prevent longterm damage. They have been shown to provide added benefit. ...Read more

Varies a lot: Boys usually stop growing after their initial growth spurt where you grow the fastest. This is different depending on when you started growing and also it is important to look at your father and whether he grew early in his teens or later. Some boys continue to grow well into their college years. Look at the height of both of your parents and you can get an idea of how tall you can be ...Read more
Most females stop growing 2-3 years after they start having their menstrual periods. Most men stop growing between ages 18 and 21, though they generally don't grow much after age 18 (although there are rare instances of late growth spurts reported).
Of course I am talking about height and hopefully we all continue to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually throughout our lives. ...Read more
It depends: Everyone generally ages at a similar rate until they reach their late twenties or mid-thirties. Unless you've inherited a rare genetic disorder or have been in an accident, at thirty you're probably basically healthy and able. Men reach the peak of their performance curve in their late twenties; women, in their mid-thirties. At that point our bodies have fully matured, and we are at our strongest. ...Read more
