OBJECTIVE To demonstrate that amputees performing "virtual" movements of their amputated limb activate cortical areas previously devoted to their missing limb, we studied amputees with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomographic (PET) scans and compared the results with those of normal volunteers performing imaginary(More)
OBJECTIVE Very few studies have attempted to quantify the true (application) accuracy of image-guidance systems during craniotomy. This is, in part, because of the lack of millimetric intraoperative targets to allow such measurements. Few in vivo studies have compared the influence of mode of patient registration on subsequent true accuracy. METHODS Seven(More)
OBJECT Sparing optic radiations can be of paramount importance during epilepsy surgery of the temporal lobe. The anatomical heterogeneity of the Meyer's loop of the optic radiations could be assessed by means of diffusion tensor tractography. We used temporal lobe surgery as a lesion model to validate this method. MATERIAL AND METHODS We analyzed the(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic subdural haematoma is a common pathology, which can be complicated by seizures. Seizures may worsen the outcome of patients presenting with a chronic subdural haematoma. However, since the overall and postoperative incidence of seizures and their impact on patients' outcome has been diversely appreciated in the literature, the interest of(More)
BACKGROUND The risk of delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is associated with large cerebral artery vasospasm, but vasospasm is not a strong predictor for DCI. Assessment of cerebral autoregulation with transcranial Doppler (TCD) may improve the prediction of DCI. The aim of this prospective study was to assess the value of(More)
Cluster headache is included in the group of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias. Although the pathophysiology of cluster headache has not yet been sufficiently established, the theory of a central origin tells us that this headache is produced by hypothalamic dysfunction. More than 50 patients have been treated with deep brain stimulation of the posterior(More)
