Presynaptic inhibition of Ia terminals and postactivation depression at the Ia fibre-motor neuron (MN) synapses were compared in the upper and lower limbs of both sides in subjects from different populations: 49 spastic patients with hemiplegia [mainly with a lesion in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) area], two tetraplegics and 35 healthy subjects.(More)
An important function of lithium as a neuroprotective agent has been documented previously. 1 Significant reduction in infarct size and DNA damages with the corresponding improvement of neurological scores were reported as results of post stroke lithium administration. In the current study, therapeutic efficacy of chronic lithium treatment 2 was assessed by(More)
This study examined the validity and reliability of the Neuropsychiatric Inventory Questionnaire version (NPI-Q), a proxy-reported format of the interview-based NPI, in assessing neuropsychiatric symptoms in 173 patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) having cognitive impairment. The NPI-Q was validated against the NPI as a gold standard.(More)
BACKGROUND Anatomical and functional differences between Asian and Caucasian populations have been described and are important in treatment of wrist pathology. The purpose of this study was to establish and compare normal values in an Asian and Caucasian population. We hypothesized that a normal Asian population will have greater wrist ROM and reduced grip-(More)
BACKGROUND Leisure activity participation has been shown to lower risks of cognitive decline in non-stroke populations. However, effects of leisure activities participation upon cognitive functions and risk of dementia after stroke are unclear. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of recent past leisure activities participation upon cognitive(More)
BACKGROUND The objectives of this study are 1) to examine the frequencies of neuropsychiatric symptom clusters in patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) by cognitive level and stroke subtype; and 2) to evaluate effect of demographic, clinical, and neuroimaging measures of chronic brain changes and amyloid upon neuropsychiatric symptom(More)
