OBJECTIVE Relative cerebral blood flow has rarely been studied as part of the preoperative assessment of tumor grade, although relative cerebral blood volume is known to be useful for this assessment. The purpose of our study was to determine the usefulness of relative cerebral blood flow in assessing the histopathologic grade of cerebral gliomas. (More)
We studied the neural correlates of rapid eye movement during sleep (REM) by timing REMs from video recording and using rapid event-related functional MRI. Consistent with the hypothesis that REMs share the brain systems and mechanisms with waking eye movements and are visually-targeted saccades, we found REM-locked activation in the primary visual cortex,(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate pathophysiological changes at an early stage of clinical Huntington's disease (HD) using a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study and a serial reaction time task paradigm. Mildly affected and presymptomatic HD subjects (n = 8) and healthy normal controls (NC, n = 12) were studied. A group behavioral(More)
