The solitary tract nucleus (NTS) is the termination site for cranial visceral afferents-peripheral primary afferent neurons which differ by phenotype (e.g. myelinated and unmyelinated). These afferents have very uniform glutamate release properties calculated by variance mean analysis. In the present study, we optical measured the inter-terminal release(More)
Prognostication of patients who remain comatose following successful resuscitation after cardiac arrest has long posed a challenge for the consulting neurologist. With increasing rates of early defibrillation, out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and expanding use of therapeutic hypothermia, prognostication in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy has(More)
OBJECTIVES In this 2-center study, we assessed the technical feasibility and reliability of a low cost, tablet-based mobile telestroke option for ambulance transport and hypothesized that the NIH Stroke Scale (NIHSS) could be performed with similar reliability between remote and bedside examinations. METHODS We piloted our mobile telemedicine system in 2(More)
