Several lines of evidence suggest that low-rate repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the motor cortex at 1 Hz reduces the excitability of the motor cortex and produces metabolic changes under and at a distance from the stimulated side. Therefore, it has been suggested that rTMS may have beneficial effects on motor performance in patients(More)
A procedure is proposed to obtain confidence regions for spectral peak frequencies. The method is based on resampling the penodogram from the estimated spectrum in order to reestimate the spectrum and its peak frequency. We investigate the dependence of the results from the applied spectral estimator in three simulation studies and apply the method to(More)
Vertebral artery dissection may cause upper limb peripheral motor deficit. We report three young patients presenting with nuchal pain followed by a nearly painless proximal paresis of the arm several days later. The cause, as detected by colour-coded Duplex sonography and MRI, was an extracranial dissection of the vertebral artery. The proximity of the(More)
Two patients with 'benign' congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD) have been observed for several years. Symptoms and signs of central nervous system (CNS) disease occurred at the age of 7 and 16 years, respectively. CNS involvement in CMD may be more common than generally recognized, slowly progressive and delayed in onset. The combination of congenital(More)
