There is growing evidence that inflammatory processes of activated microglia could play an important role in the progression of nerve cell damage in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease which harbor features of chronic microglial activation, though the precise mechanism is unknown. In this study, we presented in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study aimed to identify predictors of acute mortality after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), including voxel-wise analysis of hematoma location. METHODS In 282 consecutive patients with acute ICH, clinical and radiological predictors of acute mortality were identified. Voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping examined spatial(More)
— These days, there are many studies on cognitive architectures, which are developed based on human cognitive models. Some other studies are focused on applying these cognitive architectures to the autonomous task execution of humanoid robots. In this paper, we have shown that a real world robot, Mahru-Z can execute a task autonomously in the Blocks World(More)
BACKGROUND Plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is used as a diagnostic marker of cardiovascular diseases. BNP is secreted mainly from the myocardium and has been detected by immunoreactivity in brain and cerebral arteries. The aim of our study was to investigate plasma BNP in patients with acute cerebral infarction according to infarction subtype and(More)
INTRODUCTION We sought to determine whether Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Scores (ASPECTS) derived from baseline noncontrast CT (NCCT) and perfusion CT (CTP) imaging maps can predict clinical outcome after recanalization therapy in acute ischemic stroke of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory and whether changes in the ASPECTS from baseline to 24 h(More)
OBJECTIVE This study analyzed the relationship between prognosis and multiple clinical factors of ruptured middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), to aid in predicting the results of surgical treatment. METHODS Enrolled subjects were 41 patients with ruptured MCA aneurysm with ICH who were treated with surgical clipping.(More)
