This paper describes a case of a young patient who sought help because of pain in the right temporomandibular joint (TMJ). She also reported increasing of pain during chewing. Clinical examination revealed limited mouth opening with uncorrected deviation to the ipsilateral side. Palpation of the lateral pole of the right condyle discovered crepitus, and maximum assisted opening elicited a report of "familiar pain". The diagnosis of osteoarthritis of the TMJ (RDC / TMD criteria, Axis I, Group III) was confirmed by CBCT of TMJ...

PURPOSE: Mandibular advancement devices are commonly used in the treatment of patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Designed to maintain the mandible in forced protrusion while being worn, mandibular advancement devices (MADs) are intended to increase the upper airway during sleep, thereby reducing OSA symptoms. Depending on the extent of mandibular protrusion, side effects including temporomandibular joint dysfunction are frequently reported. These are likely to reduce overall treatment success by affecting therapeutic adherence...

REVIEW
Yoshiko Nakamura, Kazuhiro Nakamura
Energy homeostasis of mammals is maintained by balancing energy expenditure within the body and energy intake through feeding. Several lines of evidence indicate that brown adipose tissue (BAT), a sympathetically activated thermogenic organ, turns excess energy into heat to maintain the energy balance in rodents and humans, in addition to its thermoregulatory role for the defense of body core temperature in cold environments. Elucidating the central circuit mechanism controlling BAT thermogenesis dependent on nutritional conditions and food availability in relation to energy homeostasis is essential to understand the etiology of symptoms caused by energy imbalance, such as obesity...

Tarun Prakash Verma, Kanteshwari Iranagouda Kumathalli, Vinay Jain, Rajesh Kumar
In dental research, bite force serves as a valuable parameter to evaluate the efficacy of masticatory system. A variety of devices with different design and working principle have been used to record bite force, but no single device is capable to record all the required forces. One may find it difficult to choose a device that will fulfil the purpose of recording bite force for research. So, the present review aims to report and compare the wide range of devices and will help in describing their uses for recording bite force...
