Fiber refractometry revisited

Response of three sensors across three different RI Zones.

The refractive index (RI) n of a substance is generally defined as the ratio of the speed of an electromagnetic wave in vacuum c to its velocity in that substance v, or n = c/v. Refractive index

Dysfunction of cellular analgesic control in neuropathic pain

Neuropathic pain in small-fiber neuropathy was traditionally considered a consequence of injury to nociceptors and sensitization. An alternative view has also been put forward: there may be a loss of the neuronal analgesic control system, paralleling the
