Optic ataxia is a disorder associated with posterior parietal lobe lesions, in which visually guided reaching errors typically occur for peripheral targets. It has been assumed that these errors are related to a faulty sensorimotor transformation of inputs from the 'ataxic visual field'. However, we show here that the errors observed in the contralesional(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the functional organization of the auditory cortex for pure tones of 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 kHz. Ten subjects were tested with a whole-head magnetometer (151 channels). The location, latency and amplitude of the generators of the N1m (the main component of the response, peaking approximately at 100 ms) were(More)
The aim of our study was to evaluate the role of proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy and MR perfusion in the follow-up of low-grade gliomas, since conventional MR imaging (MRI) is not reliable in detecting the passage from a low- to high-grade tumor. Twenty-one patients with a World Health Organisation (WHO) grade II glioma were followed up using(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the anatomic substrates underlying the beneficial effect of prism adaptation in five patients with persistent left neglect following right stroke. METHODS In a functional imaging PET study, we used a covariation analysis to examine linear changes of regional cerebral blood flow over sessions as a function of left neglect(More)
BACKGROUND One of the diagnostic imaging hallmarks of MS is the uptake of IV administered contrast material in new lesions in the brain, signaling blood-brain barrier breakdown and active inflammation. Many clinical drug trials are designed based on the assumption that lesion enhancement on MRI remains visible on average for 1 month. For practical reasons,(More)
The complex anatomy of the larynx is a consequence of its various airway functions. The aim of the present study was to evaluate which anatomical structures of the larynx soft tissues could be defined using MRI, and to investigate the feasibility of using this technique to assess the dynamic functions of the larynx. MRI images of the larynx of six healthy(More)
Prostatic neoplasms are the second cause of mortality due to cancer in men. Brain metastases are a rare presentation, whereas epidural localizations are relatively frequent. However both occur late in the evolution of the cancer. Thus a reliable, fast and non-invasive diagnosis would be useful in this setting. Regarding the prognosis of such disease,(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of the present work was to report two new clinical cases on Charcot spinal arthropathy (Charcot spine) and to identify and review all cases reported in the literature since 1978. METHOD In parallel with a description of the clinical and radiological features of two new cases, we performed a detailed literature review after searching the(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) provide greater sensitivity than conventional MRI to detect diffuse alterations in normal appearing white matter (NAWM) of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients with different clinical forms. Therefore, the goal of this study is to combine DTI and MRSI measurements to analyze the relation between(More)
