We describe a method for mapping the functional regions of the brain using a tran-scranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) device. This device, when placed on a subject's scalp, stimulates the underlying neurons by generating focused magnetic eld pulses. A brain mapping is then generated by measuring responses of diierent motor and sensory functions to this(More)
We describe functional brain mapping experiments using a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) device. This device, when placed on a subject's scalp, stimulates the underlying neurons by generating focused magnetic field pulses. A brain mapping is then generated by measuring responses of different motor and sensory functions to this stimulation. The key(More)
Ninety-two consecutive patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) were studied before and six weeks after treatment with either nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) (n = 46 per group). Assignment of patients to treatment was based on clinical considerations and patient preference. Patients were(More)
The normal computed tomography (CT) appearances of the posterior third ventricle and related structures are presented. Seventy-six patients with lesions directly involving this ventricle were studied by CT, and results of other neuroradiological procedures evaluated. Primary tumors, metastases, hematomas, infarcts, and cysts may be reliably distinguished by(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare surface electromyographic (EMG) activity of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles between persons with and without Achilles tendinopathy (AT) during an eccentric muscle exercise in different knee joint positions. DESIGN Repeated measures design. SETTING Research laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Participants (n = 18) diagnosed with AT and(More)
