Autoimmune autonomic ganglionopathy (AAG) is a rare acquired channelopathy that is characterized by pandysautonomia, in which autoantibodies to ganglionic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (gAChR) may play a central role. Radioimmunoprecipitation (RIP) assays have been used for the sensitive detection of autoantibodies to gAChR in the serum of patients with(More)
In this study, the clinical features and MRI findings of 21 patients admitted for acute lateral medullary syndrome, including 10 patients with dysphagia, were examined. According to Cytoarchitecture of the Human Brain Stem (Olszewski, J & Baxter, D), MRI-identified lesions were classified into four groups based on their location (upper, middle-upper,(More)
INTRODUCTION We describe a previously unreported pitfall, spread of the stimulus at the elbow to the radial nerve, in an antidromic sensory nerve conduction study of the lateral antebrachial cutaneous (LAC) nerve. METHODS Subjects consisted of 80 healthy volunteers, and both sides were examined for each subject. Besides routine recording of the LAC nerve,(More)
INTRODUCTION The compound muscle action potential (CMAP) following ulnar nerve stimulation receives a considerable contribution from far-field potentials (FFPs), although their origin is not entirely clear. We investigated this issue using voluntary contractions. METHODS In 7 control subjects, we placed multiple recording electrodes over the motor points(More)
