The aim of this review is to discuss the existing evidence supporting different processes of visual brain plasticity after early damage, as opposed to damage that occurs during adulthood. There is initial evidence that some of the neuroplastic mechanisms adopted by the brain after early damage to the visual system are unavailable at a later stage. These(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to explore the predictive value of quantitative assessment of hand movements in 3-month-old infants after neonatal stroke. METHOD Thirteen infants born at term (five females, eight males; mean gestational age 39.4wks, SD 1.19, range 37-41wks; mean birthweight 3240g, SD 203, range 2900-3570g) with neonatal arterial ischaemic(More)
During the perinatal period, the nervous system is very vulnerable to insult. At this time, the brain undergoes fast and complex maturational processes such as synaptogenesis, arborization, and apoptosis, and the response to the insult is highly dependent on its exact timing. There is evidence that some of the neuroplastic mechanisms adopted by the young(More)
Defective prostacyclin bioavailability seems to play a role in the pathogenesis of thrombotic microangiopathy, including thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura and hemolytic uremic syndrome. Eight consecutive patients with a proven diagnosis of thrombotic microangiopathy were treated by Iloprost, a recently developed stable prostacyclin analogue; during(More)
The ultrastructural comparison between E and EA rosettes showed that, in the former, the rosetting lymphocytes are mostly round in shape and their interaction with sheep erythrocytes only consists of limited areas of membrane contact, in the latter, rosetting lymphocytes are mostly in the shape of uropods and surrounding ox red cells show pseudopods(More)
Psychostimulants are the recommended first-line pharmacological treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Methylphenidate is one of the most commonly used psychostimulants worldwide. Given that immediate-release and/or tablet/capsule formulations may decrease adherence to methylphenidate treatment, several drug companies have been(More)
BACKGROUND Task-based functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies of adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have revealed various ADHD-related dysfunctional brain regions, with heterogeneous findings across studies. Here, we used novel meta-analytic data-driven approaches to characterize the function and connectivity profile of(More)
