Following ingestion of marine fish in Thailand this patient complained of gastrointestinal and neurological disturbances, marked by severe, mainly motor, demyelinating polyneuropathy, which worsened on her return to Italy a few days later. The clinical pattern, electromyography, cerebrospinal fluid test and sural nerve biopsy by electronmicroscopy permitted… (More)
Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is a well-known clinical syndrome associated with the typical magnetic resonance imaging findings of pachymeningeal enhancement, downward cerebral displacement and subdural fluid collections. Atypical clinical presentations are not infrequent and often misdiagnosed. We report a case of SIH presenting with… (More)
We present the results of a search for ν µ → ν e oscillations in the NOMAD experiment at CERN. The experiment looked for the appearance of ν e in a predominantly ν µ wide-band neutrino beam at the CERN SPS. No evidence for oscillations was found. The 90% confidence limits obtained are ∆m 2 < 0.4 eV 2 for maximal mixing and sin 2 (2θ) < 1.4 × 10 −3 for large… (More)
A case of sporadic, idiopathic, paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis is described. The frequent attacks triggered by the initial phase of voluntary movement responded well to treatment with diphenylhydantoin. The nosological, etiopathogenetic, clinical and therapeutic aspects of paroxysmal choreoathetosis are discussed and the literature reviewed.
2 The NOMAD Collaboration presents a study of opposite sign dimuon events in the framework of Leading Order QCD. A total of 2714 neutrino-and 115 antineutrino-induced opposite sign
2 Abstract Bose-Einstein Correlations in one and two dimensions have been studied, with high statistics, in charged current muon-neutrino interaction events collected with the NOMAD detector at CERN. In one dimension the Bose-Einstein effect has been analyzed with the Goldhaber and the Kopylov-Podgoretskii phenomenologi-cal parametrizations. The Goldhaber… (More)
