Estrogens are critical to the functioning and maintenance of a diverse array of tissues and physiological systems in mammals. The actions of estrogen on such classical targets as the reproductive tract, gonads, mamary tissue, and hypothalamic/pituitary axis have been well characterized. A role in nonreproductive tissues, such as maintenance of bone mineral density and cardiovascular health in woman, as has been described. There were ne significant differences in the average of body weights, testis weights, among the experimental groups. The lumen of rate testis began to dilate from the day 8 and continued to the 59 post-treatment. The average diameter of dilate of rate testis in ICI 182,780 treated group increased 2.3-fold compared to the control group. Epithelical cell height in the rate testis of the treated mice decreased all the time periods, compared to the control.

The purpose of this study is to reveal the effect of electrical stimulation of body composition in obese person. Subjects were 30s to 40s aged healthy workers(2004. 3. 8~4. 17) in the S general Hospital in Suwon and they were brought to manage obesity. Subjects were divided into control group(Female<0.85, Male<0.90) and study group(Female>0.85, Male>0.90) by WHR(waist-hip ratio) that is measured by Automatic body composition analyzer(InBody 3.0). And we divided the study group with randomized methods into group A(n=8) and group B(n=8). Then we compared and analyzed the change of muscle mass, body fat, abdominal girth, WHR, BMI(body mass index) after application of electrical stimulation, three times a week, for 30 minutes in each session with 50 Hz of pulse frequency,
of pulse duration. There was statistically meaningful decrement of body fat(p<0.05) and abdominal girth(p<0.05) but not of body weight, muscle mass, WHR and BMI in the control group after application of electrical stimulation with 50 Hz,
. There were meaningful change of abdominal girth(p<0.05), WHR(p<0.05) and BMI(p<0.05), but not of body weight, muscle mass and body fat after application of electrical stimulation with 50 Hz,
in group A. We applied electrical stimulation with 50 Hz,
in group B, then there were meaningful change of body weight(p<0.05), body fat(p<0.01), abdominal girth(p<0.01), WHR(p<0.05) and BMI(p<0.01) but not of muscle mass only. Consequently, the pulse duration is the main parameter of electrical stimulation that affect the body composition of obese person in this study and if we combined the diet control to reduce blood components we could have better result. So it would be more effective to manage localized obesity(in abdomen, thigh, upper arm, etc.) if you apply electrical stimulation considering the pulse duration.

The purpose of this study was compared to MTICs(maximal tolerated isometric contraction), decrement and recovery. For this, using isokinetic exercise analysis device(Biodex Medical Systems Inc., Biodex System 3PRO, USA), low rate(20 Hz) and high rate(100 Hz) NMES(neuromuscular electrical stimulation) were applied to the quadriceps muscles of fifteen patients with spastic hemiplegia caused by lesions in the central nervous system. The results were as follows: 1. It was shown to fast decrement in the middle of phase at low rate NMES and to slow decrement of MTIC response at high rate NMES(p<.01). 2. It was shown to fast recovery at high rate NMES and to slow recovery at low rate NMES in recovery tendency of MTIC(p<.01). These conclusions suggest that NMES of high rate caused to slow fatigue and fast recovery different from low rate NMES.

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of spinal motor neuron excitability by cranial electrostimulation(CES). The fifteen Sparague-Dawley adult male rats were assigned to the three groups; GroupI(control), GroupII(low rate CES), GroupIII(high rate CES). Spinal motor neuron excitability was measured to use a computerized H reflex. The results of this study was as follows; M latency, M amplitude and H latency were no significant difference in all groups on repeated measured ANOVA(p>.05) but low rate CES and high rate CES groups were lower than ether group in comparative measurement of H amplitude and Hmax/Mmax ratio(p<.05). These results lead to the conclusion that spinal neuron excitability was influenced by CES. These results suggest that CES had the capability to lower spinal motor neuron excitability used synaptic blockade in spinal segment.

This study understood measured items of significantly difference through the surface topographical comparison of dorsal trunk's surface between normal and scoliosis subjects. 300 subjects for this study were participated (middle, high school and college students). Normal 28(males 12, females 16) and scoliosis subjects 16(males 4, females 12) were chosen by assessment tools (physical examination, 3D-surface topography) among subjects at Dongshin University Oriental Hospital. The results were as follow: 1. It was shown that the significantly difference was observed by distance of peak to curve with scoliosis between two groups(p<0.001). 2. It was shown that top difference of between groups in anterior-posterior view was the significantly difference at cervicothoracic, thoracic, thoracolumbar and dorsal part of lumbar(p<0.001). These results suggest that method to use 3D-surface topography measurement would be useful diagnosis method and clinical use of physical therapy.

Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 3, 2004, Pages 65~73
In experimental method, this study was that galvanic vestibular stimulation in vestibular system influenced the excitability of spinal neuron through. H-reflex was measured by galvanic vestibular stimulation of binaural(right-negative pole and left-positive pole) at left head turning and prone position in sixteen normal subjects in their twenties age were selected. The summary of the comparison results were obtained below. 1. In the change of H reflex according to galvanic vestibular stimulation(GVS), Hmax amplitude(p<.05) increased significantly after stimulation. 2. In the change of H reflex according to galvanic vestibular stimulation(GVS), Hmax/Mmax ratio(p<.05) increased significantly after stimulation. In the conclusion, galvanic vestibular stimulation influenced the excitability of vestibulospinal tract and spinal neuron.
