Paper Abstract

In the dynamic OCT of mental sweating, we have found internal mental sweating without ejection of excess sweat from the spiral lumen to the skin surface. Internal sweating occurs more often in the case where mental stress is applied to a volunteer, and it is more useful for evaluation of activity of the sympathetic nerve. Furthermore, the MIP imaging has been proposed for quick 3-D imaging of the spiral lumen of sweat glands. Using time-sequential MIP images with the frame spacing as short as 1.4 sec, several sweat glands can be tracked simultaneously to quantify sweating stimulated by a mental stress.
