In addition, the researchers found areas inside the auditory cortex strongly to simultaneous more strongly to simultaneous impulses than to single stimuli – this is a criterion for the identification of multimodal integration. The researchers also showed that this integration takes place in the secondary auditory cortex. The scientists believe that one reason that sensory information is so early combined in the brain, that in this way false images can be avoided more easily comply such false images a single sense impression, but inconsistent across , are a series of mind? Impressions exclude the brain can can from this speculation but, among others, needs nor subject to further investigation.
The auditory cortext in action. The image was taken with the help of functional magnetic resonance imaging. The colored dots show regions with a strong activation particular respond impulses. A: tactile stimulation of the hand. B: auditory stimulation. C: simultaneous tactile and auditory stimulation. In C is more active than in B, that is, the processing of the auditory stimulus suggests influenced by the tactile stimulation. Continue reading
A study by Holick and colleagues found that vitamin D deficiency in 45 Boston residents increased steadily throughout the winter, 49 % in August to 67 % in November, 74 % in February and 78 % in May. A week.The participants in this study were all under a 400 IU daily vitamin D supplement.
To test the effectiveness of tanning beds to combat vitamin D deficiency, Holick and colleagues studied 15 people aged between 20 and 53 All participants were measured their blood levels of vitamin D at baseline and then once a week for seven weeks. They are each in a commercial solarium tanned three times a week. Continue reading

Accordingly, this research create create the cortical areas voluntary voluntary EAS contraction and the effect of two levels of sphincter contraction efforts to determine the brain activity.. ###to register for the conference or for a complete list of panelists, please visitsource: Jessica Martin Washington University in St.Accordingly,etween regions of the brain and continenceThey have also claimed that cerebral cortical control of voluntary EAS contraction is not completely understood.
These regions include the sensory / motor, cingulate gyrus, prefrontal, parietal regions sealed off and the cerebral cortex.Furthermore, we have shown that the volume of the cerebral cortex activity was to the level of to the level of effort creating two levels of contraction, that the production of higher contraction is used by setting larger volumes of the cerebral cortex accompanied exhibiting higher -fMRI activity. The researchers confirmed the crucial role of the external anal sphincter in maintaining fecal continence. Continue reading
