The corpus callosum is the largest fiber bundle in the central nervous system and it takes part in several cognitive pathways. It can be affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) early in the disease. DTI is capable of infering the microstructural organization of the white matter. The vectorial analysis of the DTI offers the more specific indices of axial(More)
Causes, effects and connectivity changes in MS-related cognitive decline 2 2 Cognitive decline in MS and MRI Rimkus et al. ABSTRACT. Cognitive decline is a frequent but undervalued aspect of multiple sclerosis (MS). Currently, it remains unclear what the strongest determinants of cognitive dysfunction are, with grey matter damage most directly related to(More)
BACKGROUND Despite growing literature on posterior vascular disease, specific information about the cognitive and functional profiles of patients with basilar artery occlusion disease (BAOD) is scarce. The aims of this study were (1) to compare the cognitive statuses of BAOD survivors versus healthy controls and (2) to correlate the functional capacity(More)
A 44-year-old man presented with severe right visual loss. The right fundus examination showed marked optic disc oedema associated with partial macular star. Serological blood tests for infectious agents were all negative. Serum aquaporin-4 antibody was negative but anti-MOG (myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein) was positive. Magnetic resonance revealed(More)
OBJECTIVE The spinal cord-injured patients begin to present a new configuration of forces on the joints. The hip joint is one of the most affected, because these patients generally use a wheelchair as a means of locomotion. Osteoarticular changes, such as heterotopic ossification, can be found in these patients, as evidenced by radiographic studies. This(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the shoulder of this group of patients using magnetic resonance imaging to detect clinical and subclinical disorders and establish a rehabilitation program. METHODS Nine patients with spinal cord injury followed in the Laboratory of Biomechanics and Rehabilitation of the Locomotive System at HC/UNICAMP were divided into two groups(More)
