Morphological and functional retinal impairment in Alzheimer's disease patients
TLDR
It is suggested that in AD patients, there is a reduction of NFL thickness evaluated in vivo by OCT and this morphological abnormality is related to a retinal dysfunction as revealed by abnormal PERG responses. Expand
Balance Dysfunction in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
The complex ways in which PD impairs posture and balance are described, collecting and reviewing the available experimental evidence. Expand
Long-term practice effects on a new skilled motor learning: an electrophysiological study.
TLDR
The findings demonstrated the existence of a relationship between pre-programming and performance control, as suggested by decrease of BP amplitude and increase of SPP amplitude in presence of high levels of performance. Expand
P300 variations in parkinsonian patients before and during dopaminergic monotherapy: a suggested dopamine component in P300.
TLDR
There was an increase in the P300 latency of parkinsonian patients before therapy, which recovered during dopaminergic monotherapy, and in 11 voluntary healthy subjects the same therapy did not produce a reduction of the P 300 latency. Expand
Phasic alertness in a cued double-choice reaction time task: A Contingent Negative Variation (CNV) study
TLDR
The data suggest that the continuous recruitment of attentional resources does not undergo habituation when it is related to the brain activity required in the maintenance of working memory when the mental model of the stimulus environment is updated. Expand
L‐Dopa decreases cutaneous nociceptive inhibition of motor activity in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The findings show that L‐Dopa decreases the cutaneous nociceptive inhibition of motor activity in PD patients and may be useful to assess L‐ Dopa responsiveness during the clinical course of PD. Expand
Muscular cramps: proposals for a new classification
TLDR
The purpose of the present study is to propose a simple classification to provide a framework to better recognize the full spectrum of phenomenology of muscle cramps. Expand
Preprogramming and control activity of bimanual self-paced motor task in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The view that PD patients may allocate more attentional resources, as suggested by the increased BP amplitude, the decreased SPP amplitude and the low correct performances, in order to perform a new skilled motor act. Expand
Genetic Architecture of MAPT Gene Region in Parkinson Disease Subtypes
TLDR
The results may support the hypothesis that MAPT H1 clade and a specific H1 subhaplotype influence the risk of PD and modulate the clinical expression of the disease, including motor phenotype. Expand
The Role of the Right Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex in Phasic Alertness: Evidence from a Contingent Negative Variation and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Study
TLDR
The results suggest that the right DLPFC plays a crucial role in the genesis and maintenance of the alerting state and learning processes. Expand
