Using electrical finger nerve stimulation in normal human subjects, fMRI detected separate representations for all 5 fingers in the primary somatosensory cortex. Responses were located in the posterior wall of the deep central sulcus (most likely corresponding to Brodmann Area (BA) 3b), and the anterior (BA 1) or posterior crown of the postcentral gyrus (BA(More)

DESIGN Multicentre retrospective case-control study. SETTING 23 hospitals in northern Germany. PARTICIPANTS 298 adults with enterohaemorrhagic E coli induced haemolytic uraemic syndrome. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
The aim of this study was to describe the neurological syndrome in the largest cohort of adult patients with a complicated Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli infection. The recent outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli serotype O104:H4 in northern Germany affected more than 3842 patients, 22% of whom developed haemolytic uraemic syndrome. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE From May to June 2011 an outbreak of Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (EHEC) infections occurred in northern Germany leading to a great number of patients with hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS).

BACKGROUND Balancing treatment benefits and risks is part of a shared decision-making process before initiating any treatment in multiple sclerosis (MS). Patients understand, appreciate and profit from evidence-based patient information (EBPI). While these processes are well known, long-term risk awareness and risk processing of patients has not been(More)
Hemolytic uremic syndrome is a multisystem disorder that is caused by infection with Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli. HUS affects mainly children and is rare among adults. This retrospective case series analyzes clinical signs and MR imaging findings of 11 adult patients with HUS associated nervous system involvement during the epidemic EHEC outbreak(More)
We report on a 21-year-old man who developed sudden memory loss after intake of two pills of ecstasy. He was not able to remember any incident within the first 2 days after ecstasy exposure. It was reported that he repetitively asked the same questions during this time, and that he was not able to transfer information into memory at all. Before this(More)
