The aim of this study was to determine the effects of alpha neurofeedback and EMG biofeedback protocols for improvement of musical performance in violinists. The sample consisted of 12 music students (10 violinists and 2 viola players) from the Faculty of Music, Skopje (3 males, mean age of 20 +/- 0 and 9 females, mean age = 20.89 +/- 2.98). Six of them had(More)
To date, many different approaches have been used to study the impairment of motor function in Parkinson's disease (PD). Event-related potentials (ERPs) are averaged amplitude fluctuations of the ongoing EEG activity that are time locked to specific sensory, motor or cognitive events, and as such can be used to study different brain processes with an(More)
Writer's cramp is frequently associated with hand tremor and with other focal dystonias. Sometimes brain infarction, haemorrhage, arterio-venous malformations or tumors are found to cause symptomatic focal dystonias. A 44-year-old man came to our attention due to writer's cramp of his right hand and postural 6-8 Hz tremor. About three months after the onset(More)
The previously reported prevalence of multiple sclerosis in Bulgaria is considerably lower than that reported for neighbouring countries. The aim of this study was to perform a detailed epidemiological investigation in well-defined populations in this country to obtain an accurate estimate of the frequency of multiple sclerosis. An epidemiological study was(More)
The article reflects the fact, that concepts like decision making and free will have entered the field of cognitive neuroscience towards the end of 20 century. It gives an overview of brain structures involved in decision making and the concept of free will; and presenting the results of clinical observations and new methods (functional neuroimaging,(More)
BACKGROUND Othello syndrome (OS) is an organic delusional disorder with prevailing jealousy symptoms presumably appearing as side effect of antiparkinsonian therapy. The clinical spectrum of psychiatric symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD) is very wide, including symptoms of depression and anxiety, hallucinations, delusions, with prevalent paranoid(More)
BACKGROUND The speed-accuracy trade-off (SAT) refers to the balancing of speed versus accuracy during decision-making. SAT is very commonly investigated with perceptual decision-making tasks such as the moving dots task (MDT). The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and the pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA) are two brain regions considered to be(More)
This investigation estimated the mechanisms of tizanidine action on spasticity using a battery of neurophysiological methods. Thirty patients with old post-stroke spastic hemiparesis took part in the investigation. They were treated with tizanidine-mean daily dose 15.8 +/- 5.6 mg for a mean of 23.3 +/- 4.8 days. A questionnaire for assessment of subjective(More)
BACKGROUND The central nervous system is often involved in Behcet's disease. Most common are meningoencephalitic and brain stem syndromes. Although basal ganglia involvement is not an uncommon finding on necropsy, there are only single reports on extrapyramidal syndromes-dyskinesia, chorea and Parkinsonism in patients with Behcet's disease.
