Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Jena, Germany
Arthritis Rheum 56:351-9. 2007..Because interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a major inflammatory mediator, we investigated whether this cytokine has the potential to sensitize joint afferents to mechanical stimuli...
- Blockade of voltage-gated calcium channels in rat inhibits repetitive cortical spreading depressionFrank Richter
Department of Physiology, Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Teichgraben 8, D 07740 Jena, Germany
Neurosci Lett 334:123-6. 2002..The results suggest that cortical excitability resulting in repetitive CSD is markedly influenced by N- and P/Q-type VGCCs and less by L-type VGCCs...

Institute of Physiology, Neurophysiology, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, D 07740 Jena, Germany
J Neurophysiol 90:2163-70. 2003..Thus we demonstrate that the immature brain stem has the capacity to generate negative DC shifts, which could be relevant as a risk factor in newborn brain stem function...
- The relationship between sudden severe hypoxia and ischemia-associated spreading depolarization in adult rat brainstem in vivoFrank Richter
Institute of Physiology I Neurophysiology, University Hospital Jena, Teichgraben 8, D 07740 Jena, Germany
Exp Neurol 224:146-54. 2010..Thus, sudden severe hypoxia/ischemia evokes SDs in the brainstem, but the occurrence of the so-elicited SD does not influence the immediate cardiovascular response to SSH...
- Enhanced neuronal excitability in adult rat brainstem causes widespread repetitive brainstem depolarizations with cardiovascular consequencesFrank Richter
Institute of Physiology I Neurophysiology, Jena University Hospital, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Jena, Germany
J Cereb Blood Flow Metab 32:1535-45. 2012..Brainstem RDs did not propagate into the cerebral cortex. We propose to consider brainstem RPs as a pathophysiological mechanism whose significance for brainstem disease states should be further explored...
- Spreading depression in the brainstem of the adult rat: electrophysiological parameters and influences on regional brainstem blood flowFrank Richter
Institute of Physiology I Neurophysiology, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Jena, Germany
J Cereb Blood Flow Metab 28:984-94. 2008..These data show that proper conditioning renders the brainstem susceptible to spreading depression, and that spreading depression at this site elicits changes in local circulation and systemic blood pressure...
- Voltage-gated calcium channels are not involved in generation and propagation of spreading depression (SD) in the brainstem of immature ratsFrank Richter
Institute of Physiology I Neurophysiology, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Teichgraben 8, D 07740 Jena, Germany
Neurosci Lett 390:15-20. 2005..In summary, it is likely that K(+) initiates and propagates brainstem SDs...
- Noradrenergic agonists and antagonists influence migration of cortical spreading depression in rat-a possible mechanism of migraine prophylaxis and prevention of postischemic neuronal damageFrank Richter

- Effects of discotheque music on audiometric results and central acoustic evoked neuromagnetic responsesEdeltraut Emmerich
Department of Physiology I, Faculty of Medicine, Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Teichgraben 8, D 07740 Jena, Germany
Int Tinnitus J 8:13-9. 2002..Occurrence of tinnitus closely coincides with the changes in hearing threshold and AEF, thus, a limitation of loudness in discotheques is needed to prevent this kind of hearing hazard...
- Is the audiologic status of professional musicians a reflection of the noise exposure in classical orchestral music?Edeltraut Emmerich
Institute of Physiology I Neurophysiology, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Teichgraben 8, 07740, Jena, Germany
Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 265:753-8. 2008..A better education on the hearing hazards (use of hearing protectors) as well as sound protection in the rehearsal rooms is necessary. Hearing loss in professional musicians should be accepted as an occupational disease...

Neurosci Lett 348:9-12. 2003..357 microV*s, respectively (P=0.00071)). We conclude that deep somatic pain augments CNV. Reduced CNV amplitudes occurring during migraine attacks, however, reflect other mechanisms which may mask the effects of migraine headache on CNV...
