  1. Hemispheric intracranial lipoma with seizure: look under the carpet.

    Neurology India 59(1):128 (2011) PMID 21339683

  2. A novel missense mutation in LIS1 in a child with subcortical band heterotopia and pachygyria inherited from his mildly affected mother with...

    Journal of Child Neurology 25(6):738 (2010) PMID 19808989

    We report a 5-year-old male who presented with seizures and global developmental delay. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated posteriorly predominant pachygyria and subcortical band heterotopia. His mother had a history of epilepsy, with onset in her teenage years. Her MRI revealed no abnorm...
  3. Disruption of a synaptotagmin (SYT14) associated with neurodevelopmental abnormalities.

    American Journal of Medical Genetics Part A 143(6):558 (2007) PMID 17304550

  4. Magnetic resonance imaging after seizures in patients with an ischemic stroke.

    Cerebrovascular Diseases 23(5-6):339 (2007) PMID 17268164

    The positive rim around the old infarct can be considered as cytotoxic edema. Recurrent acute infarction, mainly of cardioembolic origin, seems to be a significant cause of so-called late-onset seizures, making the subdivision into early- and late-onset seizures arbitrary.

  5. A randomized clinical trial of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in patients with refractory epilepsy.

    Annals of Neurology 60(4):447 (2006) PMID 17068786

    rTMS significantly decreased the number of seizures in the active compared with sham rTMS group (p < 0.0001), and this effect lasted for at least 2 months. Furthermore, there was a significant decrease in the number of epileptiform discharges immediately after (p = 0.01) and at week 4 (p = 0.03) in...
  6. Focal cerebral pathology presenting as tonic seizures.

    Journal of Child Neurology 21(9):813 (2006) PMID 16970894

    We report a case of a 14-year-old boy with a dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor and mental retardation with intractable seizures, which were demonstrated to be predominantly tonic seizures by video-electroencephalography (EEG). He did not have any electrographic evidence of Lennox-Gastaut syndro...
  7. Pediatric experience with sudden unexplained death in epilepsy at a tertiary epilepsy center.

    Journal of Child Neurology 21(9):782 (2006) PMID 16970886

    We reviewed our experience with 17 cases of sudden unexplained death in epilepsy to determine risk factors in children. The charts of all patients with onset of epilepsy at less than age 18 years who suffered sudden unexplained death in epilepsy between August 1992 and April 2004 at our epilepsy cen...
  8. Automated neonatal seizure detection: A multistage classification system through feature selection based on relevance and redundancy analysi...

    Clinical Neurophysiology 117(2):13 (2006) PMID 16376606

    This good performance in detecting newborn ictal activities has been achieved based on an optimized subset of 30 features determined by the ReliefF-based detector, which corresponds to a reduction of the number of features of up to 75%. SIGNIFICANCE: The presented approach takes into account specifi...
  9. Clinical phenotypic heterogeneity of Alzheimer's disease associated with mutations of the presenilin-1 gene.

    Journal of Neurology 253(2):139 (2006) PMID 16267640

    It is now 10 years since the first report of mutations in the presenilin genes that were deterministic for familial autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease. The most common of these mutations occurs in the presenilin-1 gene (PSEN1) located on chromosome 14. In the ensuing decade, more than 100 PSEN1...
  10. Neuroserpin: a selective inhibitor of tissue-type plasminogen activator in the central nervous system.

    Thrombosis and Haemostasis 91(3):457 (2004) PMID 14983220

    Neuroserpin is a member of the serine proteinase inhibitor (serpin) gene family that reacts preferentially with tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) and is primarily localized to neurons in regions of the brain where tPA is also found. Outside of the central nervous system (CNS) tPA is predominan...
