Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)‐positive astrocytes with radial processes [radial glia (RG)‐like cells] in the postnatal dentate gyrus share many of the characteristics of embryonic radial… Expand
Electroconvulsive therapy: a novel hypothesis for the involvement of purinergic signalling
It is proposed that ATP is released from both neurons and glia during electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and that this leads to reduction of depressive behaviour via complex stimulation of neurons and… Expand
Pituitary apoplexy can mimic acute meningoencephalitis or subarachnoid haemorrhage
Pituitary apoplexy is an uncommon but life-threatening condition that is often overlooked and underdiagnosed. We report a 45-year-old man who presented to our emergency department with a sudden onset… Expand
Variability in selecting patients to manage in the community: a service evaluation of community matron's case-finding strategies.
BACKGROUND Community-based case management of high-frequency health service users, also termed 'high-intensity users' may reduce the demand on secondary care. In the UK, experienced senior nurses… Expand

Ventral Lumbar Synovial Cyst Causing Cauda Equina Compression: Case Report and Literature Review.
BACKGROUND Juxtafacet spinal cysts are cystic synovial lesions that often are indistinguishable clinically or radiologically and require histopathology analysis to confirm the diagnosis. Lumbar… Expand
