Plastic changes in motor cortex capillary structure and function were examined in three separate experiments in adult rats following prolonged exercise. The first two experiments employed T-two-star (T(2)*)-weighted and flow-alternating inversion recovery (FAIR) functional magnetic resonance imaging to assess chronic changes in blood volume and flow as a(More)
The authors present this study of proximal anterior cerebral arteries in the normal human to provide a clearer basis for strategy in aneurysm surgery. They describe patterns of origin of branches, their subarachnoid course, and parenchymal distribution. Branches that originate from the anterior cerebral artery at the internal carotid bifurcation perfuse the(More)
PURPOSE To compare the performance of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurement obtained with diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the characterization of non-fat-containing T1 hyperintense renal lesions with that of contrast material-enhanced MR imaging, with histopathologic analysis and follow-up imaging as the reference(More)
TWENTY CONSECUTIVE PATIENTS were treated for symptomatic thoracic disc herniation with the transpedicular approach. Most patients had severe, incapacitating local or radicular pain. Myelopathy was uncommon as magnetic resonance imaging allowed an early diagnosis. Computed tomography, after myelography, provided further information necessary for surgical(More)
Using an immunocytochemical method for the localization of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) synthesizing enzyme, glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), we have observed GABAergic nerve terminals distributed throughout all layers of normal monkey sensorimotor cortex. These terminals displayed ultrastructural characteristics that suggested that they arose from(More)
This study provides a semiquantitative description of the migration of the extracellular space marker, horseradish peroxidase (HRP), through the cerebral cortex. Following a continuous subarachnoid infusion of HRP, this marker was fixed rapidly within the cortical extracellular space (ECS) by intravascular aldehyde perfusion fixation. Microscopic(More)
A case of lipomatous (lipoblastic) meningioma is described. Atypical radiographic features of low density on computed tomography scanning and high intensity on T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging corresponded to the presence of adipose tissue within the tumor. A review of the literature indicates few similar reported cases.
Thiopentone was administered in bolus doses (1.5–3.0 mg/kg) 26 times to 18 neurosurgical patients undergoing craniotomy. Intracranial pressure and blood pressure responses to thiopentone were evaluated and the cerebral perfusion pressure calculated. Thiopentone given 21 times to treat chronic or acutely elevated intracranial pressure significantly reduced(More)
