PURPOSE The present study was aimed at evaluating electrocardiographic (ECG) changes associated with partial epileptic seizures without seizure activity secondarily generalized. METHODS We assessed heart rate (HR) changes occurring during 100 partial epileptic seizures, as recorded by ambulatory EEG-ECG in 50 outpatients. Consecutive R-R intervals were(More)
Possibility and necessity measures are commonly defined over Boolean algebras. This work considers a generalization of these kinds of measures over MV-algebras as a possibilistic counterpart of the (probabilistic) notion of state on MV-algebras. Two classes of possibilistic states over MV-algebras of functions are characterized in terms of (generalized)(More)
1. EEGraphic and behavioural effects of ondansetron, a 5HT3 antagonist, have been studied in the rabbit. Subsequently we tested the neurophysiological and behavioural interactions between ondansetron and L-5-HTP induced serotonergic syndrome. 2. The drug produced a dose-dependent (0.001, 0.01, 0.1 mg/kg i.v.) increase in the cortical power density spectrum,(More)
In this paper we present completeness results of several fuzzy logics trying to capture different notions of necessity (in the sense of Possibility theory) for Gödel logic formulas. In a first attempt, based on different characterizations of necessity measures on fuzzy sets, a group of logics, with Kripke style semantics, are built over a restricted(More)
The aim of this study was twofold: 1 - to identify a psychological profile of patients with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNESs) that is possibly distinct from that of subjects affected by epileptic seizures (ESs) alone; 2 - to detect the possible differences between the clinical features and psychological profile of patients affected by PNESs alone(More)
BACKGROUND Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) refers to a monophasic acute multifocal inflammatory CNS disease. However, both relapsing and site-restricted variants, possibly associated with peripheral nervous system (PNS) involvement, are also observed, and a systematic classification is lacking. OBJECTIVE To describe a cohort of postinfectious(More)
Randomized Controlled Trials have not let established the best pharmacological management of Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM). High dose steroids are usually employed with good results, but in a few cases the clinical outcome is poor. In other patients, particularly those affected by the site restricted ADEM variants (myelitis), the disease shows(More)
Cytokines and chemokines contribute to the pathogenesis of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Using a multiplex immunochemiluminescence ELISA, we measured 8 Th1/Th2 cytokines and 18 chemokines in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum of 17 ADEM patients, 14 multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, and 7 healthy controls (HCs). Relative to HCs, ADEM(More)
