OBJECTIVE To identify the possible anatomic sites and risk factors for the development of confusion or delirium in patients with posterior cerebral arterial (PCA) infarction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-nine patients aged 34-86 years with PCA infarction were divided into two groups: one with and the other without perturbed mentation. The clinical and(More)
We report the clinical features and dopamine transporter [2-[[2-[[[3-(4-chlorophenyl)-8-methyl-8-azabicyclo[3.2.1]oct-2-yl]methyl](2-mercaptoethyl)amino]ethyl]amino]ethanethiolato(3-)-N2,N20,S2,S20]oxo-[1R-(exo-exo)]-[99mTc] technetium([99mTc]TRODAT-1) image finding in an 86-year-old woman with akinetic mutism due to infarction of bilateral anterior(More)
OBJECTIVE Essential tremor (ET) is an involuntary postural oscillation. It is unclear to which extent motor cortical activity in preparation of volitional movement is abnormal in ET. We measured the Bereitschaftspotential (BP) to address this question. METHODS Given the known influence of the cerebello-dentato-thalamo-cortical projection in the generation(More)
OBJECTIVE Movement-related cortical potentials (MRCP; nomenclature of MRCP components according to Shibasaki and Hallett (Shibasaki H, Hallett M. What is the Bereitschaftspotential? Clin Neurophysiol 2006;117:2341-56) were studied in patients with Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) to elucidate the pathophysiology of voluntary movement. METHODS We studied nine(More)
Short-term exposure to a high concentration (TWA > 100 ppm) of toluene can cause hepatotocixity and neurotoxicity in humans. Data on the effects of exposure to low levels of toluene, however, are controversial. In addition, few studies on the effects of toluene exposure on the autonomic nervous system have been conducted. Urine samples from 34 male factory(More)
