The aim of this 1-year longitudinal fMRI study was to compare hand motor activation patterns between cerebrovascular paretic patients with a subcortical infarction and healthy elderly subjects and to evaluate the changes between the subacute phase and the chronic phase of recovery. We studied eight right-handed patients with pure motor hemiparesis due to a(More)
OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that a single dose of methylphenidate (MP) would modulate cerebral motor activation and behavior in patients having suffered a subcortical stroke. METHODS Eight men with a single stroke on the corticospinal tract resulting in a pure motor hemiparesia were included in a randomized, cross-over, double-blind, placebo-controlled(More)
INTRODUCTION Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is now recognized to be an emerging autochthonous disease in several countries. There have been several reports of neurological manifestations associated with HEV infections. Immunocompromised patients seem to be particularly vulnerable. CASE REPORT We report a 73-year-old man who presented with an acute(More)
BACKGROUND In Parkinson's disease (PD), chronic pain is a common symptom which markedly affects the quality of life. Some physiological arguments proposed that Deep Brain Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN-DBS) could improve pain in PD. METHODS We investigated in 58 PD patients the effect of STN-DBS on pain using the short McGill Pain(More)
To this day, no parameter can really monitor the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS). In this study, an index the skewness (S) derived from parameters calculated in diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been tested on MS patients for its ability to monitor the disease course. Eighteen patients underwent two examinations within 3 months consisting of a(More)
OBJECTIVES Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a key feature of multiple system atrophy (MSA), a fatal progressive neurodegenerative disorder associated with autonomic failure, parkinsonism and ataxia. This study aims (1) to determine the clinical spectrum of OH in a large European cohort of patients with MSA and (2) to investigate whether a prolonged postural(More)
