The neurological consequences of COVID-19

The outbreak of Covid-19 has become a serious threat to global health. At the time of writing, over 250 million cases and 5 million deaths have been reported worldwide. Canada, like much of the world, is experiencing ...

Quantitative Electroencephalogram Assessment of Expressive Aphasia

Research has indicated that expressive aphasia results from left frontal lobe dysfunction, whereas expressive aprosodia has resulted from right frontal lobe dysfunction. The neuroanatomical localization of nonfluent aphasia has been investigated using numerous different neuroimaging procedures, such as computerized ...

Running Head: Sex Differences in Cerebral Laterality Cardiovascular Reactivity to Speech Processing and Cold Pressor Stress: Evidence for Sex Differences in Functional Cerebral Laterality

Traditionally, brain asymmetry has been demonstrated using behavioral measures of laterality. Foremost among these measures has been the evidence for language lateralization to the left hemisphere [14]. The left and right cerebral hemispheres also appear to differ in their parasympathetic ...

Rectification of Aberrant Mossy Fiber connections by DCP-LA, Selective Activator of PKC Epsilon: A Possible Target for Later-Life Mood Disorders

Development of a few but relevant connections is crucial for the proper functioning of the early hippocampus. Unnecessary and redundant sprouting can result in excessive activity leading to the anxiety-like behavior later in life. Aberrant connections observed in the female mice lacking 5-HT1A- receptor ...

A Case of Psychosis Due to Topiramate Treatment: Review of the Literature

Topiramate is a wide spectral antiepileptic agent with multiple mechanism of action effective on epilepsy, migraine, pain syndromes, and several movement disorders. As well as the most common side-effects including nausea, weight loss, fatigue, psychomotor slowing, renal calculi ...

Intrafraction Motion Management in Cyberknife SRS with 6D-Skull Tracking

Initial evaluation of intrafraction motion in patients with intracranial targets treated with frameless, mask based stereotactic radio surgery (SRS) using 6D-skull tracking on CyberKnife. ...

Systematic Review of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Signs in Patients with Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain characterized by a predisposition to produce lasting seizures. For diagnosis, imaging methods and specifically magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been used. Therefore, the aim of this research was to gather information about possible changes in brain tissue observed using MRI. ...

Effectiveness of Gastric Levodopa Infusion on Motor Fluctuations in a Series of Advanced Parkinson's Disease Cases

Enteral (duodenal or jejunal) levodopa-carbidopa gel infusion is increasingly used for the treatment of patients with fluctuating advanced Parkinson's disease (PD). It has been argued that delayed and inconsistent gastric emptying cause erratic absorption of oral levodopa and may play a role in the loss ...

Traumatic Prefrontal Encephalopathy and Amotivational Apathetic Syndrome: Revisiting the Historical Limitations of Standardized Neuropsychological Assessments

The field of neuropsychology has made significant gains regarding the development and implementation of diagnostic measures and assessment techniques for frontal lobe pathology. Nevertheless, it is becoming increasingly evident that the existing battery of tests remains relatively insensitive ...

Traumatic Prefrontal Encephalopathy and Amotivational Apathetic Syndrome: Revisiting the Historical Limitations of Standardized Neuropsychological Assessments

The field of neuropsychology has made significant gains regarding the development and implementation of diagnostic measures and assessment techniques for frontal lobe pathology. Nevertheless, it is becoming increasingly evident that the existing ...

Interictal Psychiatric Morbidity in Adult Patients with Epilepsy in South East Nigeria

Epilepsy is the commonest neurological disorder presenting to medical clinics in Africa. Psychiatric co morbidity in epilepsy has been well described as an often under-recognized but significant component of the illness. There is paucity of data from the South East region of Nigeria, the most populous African country ...

A Hypothesis about a Possible a Molecular Mechanism in Alzheimer's Disease

It has been asserted that nucleic acid triple helices might play a role in the molecular pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease. Could changes in polyamine levels drive this? Could this partially explain why the Mediterranean diet is associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease? ...

Interactions between Axon Cytoskeleton Proteins and Oligodendrocytes during Remyelination

In the central nervous system (CNS) oligodendrocytes (OL) synthesize myelin sheaths around large diameter axons. This allows the saltatory conduction of action potentials, and increases considerably the velocity of neural conduction. These cellular structures are altered during Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the most frequent demyelinating disease of the CNS. ...

Is the Cerebral Intra-Arterial Heparin Flushing (IAHF), Beneficial for the Treatment of Ischemic Stroke?

Since 2012 until now, in Indonesia, there has been an interventional medical procedure that is called brain washing. Without preceded by an in-depth study, this procedure has been applied to the community. The purpose of this procedure is to treat, both acute and chronic ischemic stroke. ...

Neurophysiological Evaluation of Hereditary Neuropathy

Hereditary Neuropathies include a wide range of syndromes, whose main symptoms and signs have chronic course, they could be are inherited through different patterns, and they are due to chromosomal abnormalities; they are not associated to a known metabolic defect. They represent ...

The Decrease of Amyloid-Beta Deposit, Increase of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor and Decrease of C-Reactive Protein Levels in the Rat Model of Dementia, Related to the Physical Exercises

Brain plasticity, also known as neuroplasticity, is a term that encompasses both synaptic plasticity and non-synaptic plasticity it refers to changes in neural pathways and synapses ...
