|spinal neuron function during relaxation imagery by analyzing F-waves generated from the left thenar muscles in response to stimulation of the left median nerve at the wrist in 10 healthy subjects. F-waves were recorded in a resting position and during, immediately after, and at 5, 10, and 15 min after a 2-min relaxation imagery period. Persistence, F/M amplitude ratio, and latency were analyzed from the recorded F-waves. The F/M amplitude ratio was lower in the relaxation imagery condition than in the resting condition, whereas it either recovered or continued to decrease after relaxation imagery.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
