BACKGROUND This study assessed the impact of DaTscan on clinical management, diagnosis, confidence of diagnosis (CoD), quality of life (QoL), health resource use (HRU) and safety during a 1-year follow-up in patients with clinically uncertain parkinsonian syndromes (CUPS). METHODS A total of 19 university hospital centres in Europe and the USA(More)
Resting electroencephalograph (EEG) asymmetry is a biological marker of the propensity to respond affectively to, and a measure of change in affect associated with, acute aerobic exercise. This study examined the EEG-affect-exercise relationship. Twenty participants performed each of three randomly assigned 30-min conditions: (a) a nonexercise control, (b)(More)
Serum antibodies against such major glycolipids as GM1, GD1b, and LM1 have been reported in patients in the acute phase of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Because minor unidentified glycolipids also may be targets of antibodies in GBS sera, we assayed serum antibody against a crude ganglioside fraction using thin-layer chromatogram immunostaining. Antibody(More)
Little is known regarding effects of components of the exercise stimulus (e.g., intensity, duration) on affective responses. The effect of varying levels of exercise intensity was examined for state anxiety (SA), positive affect (energetic arousal; EA), and negative affect (tense arousal; TA). Twenty subjects (M age = 22.6 years; M VO2 max = 47.8(More)
BACKGROUND An accurate diagnosis is important for timely and adequate treatment in patients with clinically uncertain parkinsonian syndrome (CUPS). OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess safety and changes in clinical management, diagnosis and quality of life (QoL) at 4 and 12 weeks following DaTscan (ioflupane [(123)I] injection) imaging in(More)
Based on Solomon's Opponent-Process theory (1980), it was predicted that individuals involved in a regimen of regular aerobic exercise (active; n = 18) would respond to an acute bout of exercise with reduced negative and/or increased positive affect compared to nonactive counterparts (nonactive; n = 12). State Anxiety (SA), positive affect (PA), negative(More)
To reveal contributions of different subdivisions of the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) to visuomotor behavior, segments of either layer A or the C layers were inactivated with microinjections of gamma-aminobutyric acid while cats made saccades to retinally stabilized spots of light placed either in affected regions of visual space or mirror-symmetric(More)
