At what age does dendrite development cease?

At what age does dendrite development cease?

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)?

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

What is the difference between dendrite, ganglion, synapse?

What is the difference between dendrite, ganglion, synapse?

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?

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)?

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?

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,

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?

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
