Three areas of the left hemisphere play different roles in sentence comprehension. An area of posterior middle and superior temporal gyrus shows activation correlated with the structural complexity of a sentence, suggesting that this area supports processing of sentence structure. The lateral anterior temporal gyrus is more activated bilaterally by all(More)
Marked neuron loss in the nucleus basalis of Meynert complex (NBMC) in Alzheimer's disease has repeatedly been reported in the literature. However, most of these studies quantitated only magnocellular, hyperchromatic (putative cholinergic) neurons of just a small part of the NBMC, and counts were expressed as numerical density. Applying a(More)
The question of the superior operative technique for meralgia paresthetica is unsettled. Operative treatment by either neurolysis or transection of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve was performed in 21 patients with meralgia paresthetica after complete failure of conservative treatment; neurolysis in 10 patients and transection in 11 patients were(More)
In the literature, activation of the hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS) in normal aging has been demonstrated in rat and human. This activation might be secondary to an age-related decline in vasopressin binding sites in the kidney, or to cell loss in the supraoptic (SON) and paraventricular nuclei (PVN) and/or to an age-related decline in(More)
Unfortunately, Figs. 12, 13 and 15 are published with incorrect details in the original publication. The missing details are highlighted separately in each figure and the corrected figures are given below: Fig. 12 Boundaries between areas 43 and 40, and 72 and 88 are lacking. Boundaries between areas 89 and 160, and 128 and 163 are inconspicuous. At the top(More)
The human cerebral cortex contains numerous myelinated fibres, the arrangement and density of which is by no means homogeneous throughout the cortex. Local differences in the spatial organization of these fibres render it possible to recognize areas with a different myeloarchitecture. The neuroanatomical subdiscipline aimed at the identification and(More)
During the period extending from 1910 to 1970, Oscar and Cécile Vogt and their numerous collaborators published a large number of myeloarchitectonic studies on the cortex of the various lobes of the human cerebrum. In a previous publication [Nieuwenhuys et al (Brain Struct Funct 220:2551–2573, 2015; Erratum in Brain Struct Funct 220: 3753–3755, 2015)], we(More)
The neuropeptide galanin is known to inhibit the evoked release of acetylcholine in ventral hippocampus of the rat. Co-localization of this peptide with choline acetyltransferase in neurons of the cholinergic septal nuclei has been demonstrated in the rat and non-human primate. The severe deficiency of the cholinergic hippocampal projection system arising(More)
