One interesting point is the extensive contralateral connectivity of these neurons, demonstrating that motor outputs are coordinated on right and left sides by significant direct innervation, even though many buccal motor neurons are both ipsi- and contralaterally coupled by electrical networks.
The cue ONSET can elicit facilitatory or inhibitory effects on MRT to targets appearing ipsilaterally as compared to targets appearing contralaterally to the cue location.
Graft effects were evident bilaterally but were more prominent contralaterally to the grafted putamen.
Although there is consensus on the issue that the facial nerves of the pyramidal tracts are contralaterally distributed to the lower region of the face (Borod & Koff, 1984; Campbell, 1986), it is unclear as to the nature of the connection with the upper part.
found that facet joint load (FJL) increased ipsilaterally during lateral bending, and contralaterally during axial rotation after disc prosthesis implantation.
We conclude that the IJV becomes more superficial when head was rotated 45[degrees] contralaterally in comparison with neutral head position which makes cannulation easy but if our sole objective was to cannulate the IJV while reducing the likelihood of the CA puncture then neutral was the best head position which reduces overlapping between the IJV and CA.
Candidates for hemiablative therapy are those patients with unifocal lesions and unilateral disease or patients with bilateral cancer and insignificant disease contralaterally.
Type C1 fractures are unilaterally unstable, type C2 fractures are comprised of an unstable pattern on one side of the pelvis and a partially stable (type B injury) contralaterally, and type C3 fractures are bilaterally unstable.
A developmental study also depicted nerve fibers that extend contralaterally and seem to produce the asymmetric innervation in the oral region (Kaji et al.
If there is unilateral premature contact between the posterior teeth, a posterior open bite will occur contralaterally.
Because of its U-shape, fractures of the mandible often are bilateral, creating one fracture at the site of the injury and another contralaterally.
The early immuno-reactive pedal ganglion neurons that are paired contralaterally and send axons to the ciliated pedal sole epithelium are labeled here as el through e7 in the order of their appearance.
