Cerebellar climbing fibres originate in the inferior olive (IO). Temporary IO inactivation produces movement deficits. Does permanent inactivation produce similar deficits and, if so, do they recover? The excitotoxin, kainic acid, was injected into the rostral IO of three cats. Behaviour was measured during reaching and locomotion. Two cats were injected(More)
BACKGROUND Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is a catastrophic childhood cryptogenic or symptomatic epilepsy. Hypothalamic hamartomas cause refractory epilepsy often consistent with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. METHODS Children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome were defined by a triad of multiple generalized seizure types, slow spike-and-wave on EEG, and mental retardation.(More)
Falls are an important adverse event in an epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU). We identified patterns of falls in an EMU and compared them with risk factors for inpatient falls. Twenty-six patients with 26 falls (2.3% of admissions) in the EMU were compared with 50 general neurology inpatients with 56 falls over a 4-year period. In the EMU, the majority (62%)(More)
We aimed to describe the effects of high-voltage electricity on the scalp, meninges, brain parenchyma, and venous sinuses of a 10-year-old girl with an accidental high-voltage electrical burn of the head who presented with an area of full-thickness scalp loss. Magnetic resonance venography demonstrated that the anterior third of the superior sagittal sinus(More)
Background: Falls are a major risk for Parkinson disease patients (PD). Single falls, in older people may be related to the underlying disease or may be accidental. Recurrent falls are more likely to be related to the underlying disease. Objectives: To predict falls in patients with Parkinson disease. Patients and Methods: Between July 1, 2011 and June 30,(More)
Purpose/Aim of the study: To study finger displacement in patients with Parkinson disease dementia (PDD) and in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). METHODS We examined 56 patients with PDD and 35 with AD. Patients were examined during their regular outpatient clinic visit. Finger displacement was measured by observers not actively involved in the study(More)
In 18 months, 850 patients were referred to Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center (MAPC). Among them, 810 patients had typical Parkinson disease (PD) and 212 had PD for ≤5 years. Among the 212 patients with early PD, 27 (12.7%) had freezing of gait (FOG). Forty of the 850 had atypical parkinsonism. Among these 40 patients, all of whom had symptoms for ≤5 years, 12(More)
