An EEG finding of temporo-occipital or temporo-parieto-occipital spike-wave complexes, suppressed by eye opening, coexisting with classical migraine, was observed in 14 children; in 13 of these patients, seizures were present. Classical migraine, visual phenomena and seizures coexisted in different clinical patterns.
A correlation was found among the degree of memory loss, intellectual impairment, the quantity of senile plaques, and a decrease in choline acetyltransferase and acetylcholinesterase activity in patients affected by senile dementia of the Alzheimer type. In this study, patients were subjected to a series of computerized electroencephalographic (EEG)(More)
Thirty one patients were treated with either S-Adenosylmethionine or Imipramine in a double-blind clinical trial comparing S-Adenosylmethionine (25 mg i.m. three times daily) with Imipramine (25 mg i.m. three times daily) administered for a period of three weeks. Hamilton Rating scores showed no significant differences between treatments, but such slight(More)
Autoregulation of cerebral blood flow (constant perfusion despite variations in blood pressure) was studied in 15 control subjects and in 24 patients with cerebral vascular lesions. Thirteen patients were studied within the first 2 days of an episode of cerebral ischemia ("acute" group); 11 were studied from 15 days to several months after an ischemic(More)
The changes induced by phenobarbital in cerebral enzymatic activities of the Krebs' cycle (citrate synthase, malate dehydrogenase) and electron transfer chain (total NADH-cytochrome c reductase and cytochrome oxidase) were studied. In addition, the activity of lactate dehydrogenase of acetylcholine esterase and of glutamate dehydrogenase was also studied.(More)
Gli AA presentano i risultati ottenuti con la fotoscintigrafia con Hg203 e Tc99 in 244 casi. Dopo aver osservato l'elevata positività con cui vengono diagnosticati i tumori cerebrali (64 casi su 65), gli autori considerano come sia più difficile con la scintigrafia rispetto alla gammaencefalografia porre una diagnosi di natura del tumore. I risultati(More)
On the long term Parkinson Disease (PD) treatment is often complicated by the occurrence of motor fluctuations. To find out whether early treatment of PD with levodopa, dopaminoagonists or 1-deprenyl is associated with any difference in motor fluctuations occurrence, the Italian Parkinson Study Groups initiated a multicenter, randomized study. Since(More)
A case is presented of an alcoholic woman aged 46, with a progressive impairment of cranial nerves, bilateral pyramidal signs and involvement of deep sensation, clouding of the sensorium and loss of orientation. The disease run a fatal course in seven months. Histological examination disclosed a polioencephalopathy with argyrophilic plaques, neurofibrillary(More)
