INTRODUCTION Positive schizotypy has been associated with a leftward spatial bias (pseudoneglect) in different tasks and populations. We tested whether this relationship (1) can be observed for two different hemispatial tasks in the same participants, and (2) is specific to positive schizotypy. METHODS Forty right-handed men performed a conventional line(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on improving consciousness in patients with persistent unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS) (previously termed persistent vegetative state [PVS]) or in a minimally conscious state (MCS). DESIGN Prospective, case series trial with follow-up at 12 months. SETTING General(More)
Idiopathic cervical dystonia (ICD) is a movement disorder often resulting in profound disability and pain. Treatment options include oral medications or other invasive procedures, whereas intractable ICD has been shown to respond to invasive (deep) brain stimulation. In the present blinded, placebo-controlled case study, transcranial direct current(More)
The prognostic value of the dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI perfusion and its histogram analysis-derived metrics is not well established for high-grade glioma (HGG) patients. The aim of this prospective study was to investigate DCE perfusion transfer coefficient (Ktrans), vascular plasma volume fraction (vp), extracellular volume fraction (ve), reverse(More)
Subdural fluid collections (SFC) are characteristic complications of shunting for idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH). This report presents two shunted iNPH patients with clinically silent postoperative SFC, detected after abnormal neuropsychological findings. These cases highlight the value of neuropsychological assessment in the routine(More)
OBJECT Current recommendations stress the need for cognitive parameters to be integrated in the evaluation of outcomes for intracranial meningioma surgery. The aim of this prospective study was to examine neurocognitive function in meningioma patients pre- and postoperatively. METHODS Patients with skull base (anterior and middle fossa) and convexity(More)
OBJECTIVE The cerebral isthmus is the white matter area located between the periinsular sulcus and the lateral ventricle. Studies demonstrating the fiber tract and topographic anatomy of this entity are lacking in current neurosurgical literature. Hence, the authors' primary aim was to describe the microsurgical white matter anatomy of the cerebral isthmus(More)
