In this study, ability to recognize auditory and visual expressions of emotion was investigated in people with asymmetrical amygdala damage (AAD) and temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). METHODS Recognition of five emotions was tested across three participant groups:(More)
OBJECTIVE A cohort of pituitary tumour patients, who had undergone definitive treatment within a 15-year period at a single neuroscience centre, were investigated as to whether there were differences in psychological well-being and psychosocial functioning, dependent on endocrine pathology and treatment variables.

In a ten-year study of Machado-Joseph-Azorean disease (MJAD), three distinct syndromes emerged: ataxia syndrome (11 patients), ataxia-motor neuron-extrapyramidal syndrome (four), and ataxia-motor neuron-extrapyramidal syndrome (two). Three patients had such advanced disease that classification was not possible. These syndromes more accurately describe(More)
Contrast enhancement computed tomography (CT) in a patient with central nervous system (CNS) sarcoidosis revealed increased densities particularly in the frontal and temporal areas. Treatment with prednisone improved the condition, and the CT abnormality disappeared. These previously undescribed findings can be of help in establishing the diagnosis and in(More)
Electro-oculographic recordings (EOG) were made on 26 patients with Machado-Joseph disease or at genetic risk for that disease. All patients with clinically apparent disease (ataxia, dysarthria, spasticity, or ophthalmoparesis) had abnormal eye movements. Defects in caloric response, sinusoidal tracking, opticokinetic nystagmus (OKN), refixation saccades,(More)
Among 60 femur fractures not amenable to fixation by simple intramedullary nailing, 30 were treated with balanced skeletal traction followed by cast bracing or spica casting, and 30 were treated with closed interlocking nailing. The criteria for using an interlocking nail were fractures with less than 50% cortical contact or fractures with rotationally(More)
