Studies with patients and functional magnetic resonance imaging investigations have demonstrated that the cerebellum plays an essential role in adaptation to visuomotor rotation and force field perturbation. To identify cerebellar structures involved in the two tasks, we studied 19 patients with focal lesions after cerebellar infarction. Focal lesions were(More)
Idiopathic cervical dystonia (CD) and benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) are the most common forms of focal dystonia. Previous autopsy and imaging studies suggested that these disorders are not accompanied by structural brain abnormalities. However, recent brain voxel-based morphometry (VBM) studies of these conditions suggest that there actually may be(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine if clinically significant signs of aphasia, neglect or extinction, which have a well-known cerebral lateralization, are present in children and adolescents with acute focal lesions following tumour surgery in the cerebellum. Eight children and adolescents with cerebellar tumours were tested within days after(More)

The aim of the present study was to examine if the most frequent cognitive disorders after cortical damage with a well-known cerebral lateralization, namely aphasia, neglect and extinction, are present in an unselected series of continuously admitted patients with acute cerebellar stroke. Twenty-two adults with acute cerebellar stroke were compared with 22(More)
BACKGROUND Spondylosis leads to an overestimation of bone mineral density (BMD) with dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) but not with quantitative computed tomography (QCT). The correlation between degenerative changes of the spine and QCT-BMD was therefore investigated for the first time. METHODS One hundred thirty-four patients (66 female and 68(More)
