Essential Head Tremor Is Associated with Cerebellar Vermis Atrophy: A Volumetric and Voxel-Based Morphometry MR Imaging Study
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our aim was to investigate the presence of brain gray matter (GM) abnormalities in patients with different forms of essential tremor (ET). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We usedExpand

Bilateral transverse sinus stenosis and idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema in chronic tension-type headache
Previous MR studies have established that bilateral transverse sinus stenosis (BTSS) predicts idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema (IIHWOP) in migraine. However, it is uncertainExpand

A novel Angiogenin gene mutation in a sporadic patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis from southern Italy
Mutations in the Angiogenin gene (ANG) linked to 14q11.2 have been recently discovered to be associated with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in Irish and Scottish populations. In our study weExpand

The nicotinic receptor beta 2 subunit is mutant in nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy.
Clustered attacks of epileptic episodes originating from the frontal lobe during sleep are the main symptoms of autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (ADNFLE, MIM 600513). Despite theExpand

Hippocampal and thalamic atrophy in mild temporal lobe epilepsy
Background: Patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) often have mild drug-responsive epilepsy which is frequently associated with MRI detectable mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS), indicating that MTSExpand

NACP-REP1 polymorphism is not involved in Parkinson's disease: a case-control study in a population sample from southern Italy
Contradictory evidence has been reported on the role of the polymorphic mixed dinucleotide repeat (NACP-REP1) of the alpha-synuclein gene as a risk factor for sporadic Parkinson's disease (PD). InExpand

Autosomal recessive hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy with focally folded myelin sheaths: clinical, electrophysiologic, and genetic aspects of a large family.
We describe 10 patients from a large family with early onset motor and sensory neuropathy. Six were still living at the time of the study. In all cases, early motor milestones had been achieved. MeanExpand

The subacute levodopa test for evaluating long‐duration response in parkinson's disease
The clinical relevance of a long‐duration response (LDR) to levodopa therapy in Parkinson's disease (PD) has not been widely recognized. In 25 patients with moderate PD, we measured LDR on motorExpand

The spectrum of Notch3 mutations in 28 Italian CADASIL families
Background: Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leucoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is a cause of hereditary cerebrovascular disease. It results from mutations in theExpand
