There is currently a lack of evidence-based guidelines to guide the pharmacological treatment of neurobehavioral problems that commonly occur after traumatic brain injury (TBI). It was our objective to review the current literature on the pharmacological treatment of neurobehavioral problems after traumatic brain injury in three key areas: aggression,(More)
Ethanol is known to impair cognitive and psychomotor function in high doses. We studied the impairment of cognitive, psychomotor and behavioral responses in controlled environment in a group of healthy young social drinkers at below and above legal limit for presumption of intoxication (100 mg/dl). Attention, concentration, auditory-verbal memory and memory(More)
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) is a neurological condition that challenges differential diagnosis, as the symptoms -- cognitive and gait impairment and urinary incontinence -- are similar to those of many aging disorders, including Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

Thrombosis of the deep cerebral venous system is usually fatal, and patients are frequently stuporous or comatose at presentation. This report describes serial radiological and neuropsychological observations in an 18-year-old woman who remained alert and survived this disorder. In association with diencephalic edema seen on computed tomographic scan, she(More)
We investigated the effect of pretreatment with a prostaglandin synthetase inhibitor, ibuprofen, on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ethanol in six fasting subjects. Ibuprofen caused a 10% decrease in the maximum rate of elimination of ethanol. Visual memory, which is a function primarily mediated by the right cerebral hemisphere, was measured(More)
