We present the response pattern of intracranial event-related potentials (ERPs) recorded from depth-electrodes in the human amygdala (four patients) to faces or face parts encoding fearful, happy or neutral expressions. The amygdala showed increased amplitude ERPs (from 200 to 400 ms post-stimulus) in response to the eye region of the face compared to whole(More)
A case of focal inferior limb sensory-motor status epilepticus as the only manifestation of a multiple sclerosis (MS) relapse is described. To obtain evidence of the relationship between the seizures, the cortical plaque and the left foot motor area, an EEG-fMRI co-registration study was undertaken demonstrating that seizure-related BOLD signal(More)
Seven years after left hemicolectomy and radical lymph nodal dissection followed by adjuvant chemotherapy for colorectal cancer (histotype, adenocarcinoma; stage, pT3N2M0; grading, G2), a slight increase in carcinoembryonic antigen levels (6.2 ng/mL; range, 0-5 ng/mL) was detected in a 79-year-old man. He was a heavy smoker with history of an interstitial(More)
Orthopantomograms (OPT) are used to assess the anatomical relationship between the inferior alveolar nerves (IAN) and the roots of third molars and the related risk of postextraction iatrogenic neurological lesions. When the risk is high, computed tomography (CT) or conebeam CT may be warranted. We investigated how dentists judged the need for CT from OPT(More)
The Authors carried out a methodological study about the way of expressing in mIU/ml the antibody to HBV surface antigen (anti-HBs) titer. The results showed that Hollinger's formula seems to provide a good accuracy when enzyme immunoassay is employed (AUSAB EIA, Abbott). Moreover, moderate variations in the commercial anti-HBs kits studied (AUSAB, AUSAB(More)
Here we describe a 77-year-old man with a solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura showing increasing tracer uptake at Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT, demonstrating that solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura may overexpress somatostatin receptors, therefore mimicking neuroendocrine tumors at somatostatin receptor PET/CT.
