Prior experiments have shown that a region of the medial and inferior vestibular nuclei contributes to cardiovascular and respiratory regulation. In addition to labyrinthine inputs, the majority of neurons in this region of the vestibular nuclei receive signals from the skin, muscle, and viscera, although the pathways conveying these nonlabyrinthine inputs(More)
Visuospatial learning impairment in Parkinson Disease. Despite the fact that different mnesic processes have been found to be impaired in Parkinson's disease, spatial learning is still an unstudied aspect. The aims of the present study were to evaluate visuospatial and verbal learning in nondemented patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) (N= 20), and to(More)
Cognitive deficit in Parkinson's disease has been traditionally considered as being mainly related to executive dysfunction secondary to frontostriatal affectation. However, this traditional consideration has recently been challenged. Forty-three nondemented PD patients (mean age = 59.19; SD = 9.64) and twenty control group subjects (mean age = 60.85; SD =(More)
INTRODUCTION The <<7- Minute Screen>> is a neurocognitive screening test for the detection of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients in primary care settings. It consists of 4 brief subtests (orientation, memory, visuoconstruction and verbal fluency) and provides a broader neuropsychological profile than other widely used screening tests, The aim of the present(More)
INTRODUCTION Mild cognitive impairment is common in nondemented Parkinson disease patients (PD-MCI) and is considered as a risk factor for dementia (PDD). Recently, the Movement Disorder Society (MDS) published guidelines for PD-MCI, although the studies available are still limited. The aim of this work was to characterize PD-MCI and its progression to(More)
Xanthogranulomas of the choroid plexus in the lateral ventricle are usually asymptomatic lesions found incidentally at autopsy. Symptomatic cases are rare. We present the case of a 30-year-old woman with a xanthogranuloma of the right lateral ventricle who showed intracranial hypertension and visual disturbance. Plain T1-weighted magnetic resonance images(More)
