The aim of this study is to measure serum levels of neurotropic factor (NF) in patients with dementia. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) were determined in Alzheimer’s dementia patients without medication (AD; n: 22), Alzheimer’s dementia patients receiving cholinesterase inhibitor (CEI) treatment(More)
As some apparently idiopatic epilepsies may occasionally pose diagnostic difficulties in regard to their precise status of etiology, evoked potentials, particularly visual evoked potential (VEP), may contribute to the diagnosis of childhood epilepsy with occipital paroxysms (CEOP) as a subsidiary method of evaluation.

To investigate the association between somatosensory blink reflex (SBR) and peripheral facial palsy (PFP) severity and trigeminal blink reflex (BR) changes in cases with PFP and subsequent postparalytic facial syndrome development (PFS). One hundred and twenty subjects with peripheral facial palsy and post-facial syndrome and 44 age and gender matched(More)
Vascular changes are evident in the brains of patients with different types of dementias. Even in the first neuropathological investigation of Aguste D.'s brain, Alois Alzheimer described vascular changes besides neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles (1). The importance of vascular changes in the development of dementia is well established after the(More)
