Intra-operative neurophysiology during microvascular decompression for hemifacial spasm.
There is evidence that primary hemifacial spasm (HFS) in the majority of patients is related to a vascular compression of the facial nerve at its root exit zone (REZ). As a consequence, the hyperexcitability of facial nerve generates spasms of the facial muscles. Microvascular decomp...
Neurophysiological changes after intramuscular injection of botulinum toxin.
Botulinum toxin (BT) acts peripherally by inhibiting acetylcholine release from the presynaptic neuromuscular terminals and by weakening muscle contraction. Therefore, its clinical benefit is primarily due to its peripheral action. As a result, local injection of BT has become a succ...
Abstracts of the 136th Annual Meeting of the American Neurological Association. September 25-27, 2011. San Diego, California, USA.
Ultrafast and whole-body cooling with total liquid ventilation induces favorable neurological and cardiac outcomes after cardiac arrest in r...
We aimed to determine whether this could limit the post-cardiac arrest syndrome in a rabbit model. We especially focused on neurological, cardiac, pulmonary, liver and kidney dysfunctions. Methods and Results- Anesthetized rabbits were submitted to either 5 or 10 minutes of untreated ventricular fib...
Can neuromuscular fatigue explain running strategies and performance in ultra-marathons?: the flush model.
We are suggesting a holistic model in the second part of this article. This model can be applied to all endurance activities, but is specifically adapted to ultra-endurance running: the flush model. This model has the following four components: (i) the ball-cock (or buoy), which can be compared with...
A novel rotate-and-fire digital spiking neuron and its neuron-like bifurcations and responses.
A novel rotate-and-fire digital spiking neuron is presented. The digital neuron is a wired system of shift registers and thus it is suited to on-chip learning unlike many other analog spiking neuron models. By adjusting the wiring pattern among the registers, the digital neuron can g...
The planarian flatworm: an in vivo model for stem cell biology and nervous system regeneration.
We highlight why planarians are an exciting tool in the study of regeneration and its underlying stem cell biology in vivo, and discuss the potential promises and current limitations of this model organism for stem cell research and regenerative medicine....
The magnitude of center-surround facilitation in the discrimination of amplitude spectrum is dependent on the amplitude of the surround.
We verified if the well-known center-surround spatial interactions that operate early on in the visual processing stream influence the perception of real-world images. The results show that amplitude slope discrimination is greatly reduced (i.e., flat) when the stimulus is viewed in isolation. Howev...
The SOS pilot study: a RCT of routine oxygen supplementation early after acute stroke--effect on recovery of neurological function at one we...
Our data show that routine oxygen supplementation started within 24 hours of hospital admission with acute stroke led to a small, but statistically significant, improvement in neurological recovery at 1 week. However, the difference in NIHSS improvement may be due to baseline imbalance in stroke sev...
[Vascular endothelial growth factor].
VEGF, vascular endothelial growth factor, is a substance firstly described in 1983 as a tumor-secreted protein which causes the development of ascitic fluid in case of abdominal tumors. Its influence on angiogenesis was ascertained by many studies. The strongest stimulus for its prod...
