Of 421 veterans who had penetrating brain wounds in Vietnam 15 years ago, 53% had posttraumatic epilepsy, and one-half of those still had seizures 15 years after injury, and Phenytoin therapy in the first year after injury did not prevent later seizures.
Language dominance in partial epilepsy patients identified with an fMRI reading task
An fMRI reading paradigm can identify language dominance in frontal and temporal areas and clinical visual interpretation is comparable to quantitative ROI analysis.
Botulinum toxin A and chronic low back pain
Pavertebral administration of botulinum toxin A in patients with chronic low back pain relieved pain and improved function at 3 and 8 weeks after treatment.

The molecular features of breast cancers most likely to develop brain metastases and the potential use of these predictive molecular alterations for patient management and future therapeutic targets are addressed.
Brain metastasis from ovarian cancer: a systematic review
Factors that significantly increased the survival were younger age at the time of ovarian cancer diagnosis and brain metastasis diagnosis, lower grade of the primary tumor, higher KPS score and multimodality treatment for the brain metastases.

Congenital mirror movements. Abnormal organization of motor pathways in two patients.
Study of patients with congenital mirror movements finds abnormalities in maps of motor and premovement potentials and in PET scans are consistent with aberrant organization of motor representation areas and corticospinal pathways with ipsilateral as well as contralateral control of voluntary movement.
