Neurotransmitter patterns in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS)

Ничего нового: как проявляется химически склонность к сколиозу:
Review of the completed urinalyses revealed a trend towards
— elevated histamine,
— elevated norepinephrine and
— decreased serotonin in the AIS patients as compared to non-scoliotics.

Since these neurotransmitters are typically expressed in specific cortical areas, this pattern of imbalance may manifest as a functional hemisphericity, causing asymmetrical efferent responses to peripheral, afferent muscular inputs, and altering firing thresholds in their respective pathways.
