Integrative physiology to internal stimuli

This section is no longer accepting submissions.

The section aims to publish articles studying the physiological response elicited by an internal agent, action, or condition and the consequences of these stressors on all aspects of integrative physiology including neurobiological, immunological, endocrine, cardiovascular and circadian. Internal stimuli include development, ageing, stress and pathophysiological conditions. The section will also welcome neuro-immunology and integrative immunology submissions.

  1. Iodine-based solutions have long been known to be effective in aiding the differentiation among soft tissues in both fundamental anatomical research and for clinical diagnoses. Recently the combination of this...

  6. This work tests the hypothesis that bladder instillation with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) modulates sensory and motor nerve plasticity, and, consequently, bladder function and visceral sensitivity.
