Chronic manganese poisoning: A neuropathological study with determination of manganese distribution in the brain
The continuance of neurological disorders in CMP is not linked to an elevated manganese concentration itself in the brain, and CMP appears to be different from PD in neuropathology andManganese behavior in brain.

The age-dependent changes in unmyelinated nerve fibres thus mainly consist of an increased production of processes by Schwann cells in the absence of cell multiplication, which is considered to be useful and superior to the conventional assessment of un myelinated axon density and diameter distribution.
Visuospatial processes of line bisection and the mechanisms underlying unilateral spatial neglect.
The left hemisphere has the ability to estimate the midpoint of the line through the right visual field and that visuospatial disorder in the line bisection test is attributable to the pathological change in the right hemisphere.
Characteristics of parkinsonian and ataxic gaits: a study using surface electromyograms, angular displacements and floor reaction forces
Hereditary generalized amyloidosis with polyneuropathy. Clinicopathological study of 65 Japanese patients.
Immunohistochemical study revealed that the amyloid fibril proteins in the patients with all four unusual clinical phenotypes were related to plasma prealbumin, indicating clinical heterogeneity of hereditary amyloidsosis with polyneuropathy.
Sleep-related periodic leg movements (nocturnal myoclonus) due to spinal cord lesion
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy in the aged
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy was found in 57% of 123 autopsy brains removed from patients aged 59–101 years and was significantly correlated with the number of senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 6: CAG repeat expansion in α1a voltage‐dependent calcium channel gene and clinical variations in japanese population
Ataxia is the most common initial symptom found in 45 of the 48 patients, and patients with a prolonged disease course showed other accompanying clinical features including dystonic postures, involuntary movements, and abnormalities in tendon reflexes.

The case of a 56 year old Japanese male with pure agraphia of kanji (the Japanese morphograms) due to haemorrhagic infarction of the left temporal lobe caused by the rare condition of cortical vein thrombosis of Labbé indicates the necessity for considering thromBosis of the labbé vein when a subcortical haematoma is detected in a temporal lobe on computed tomography of the brain.
