Brain imaging findings in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD)-a systematic review on potential biomarkers for neurodegeneration-, This is a PDF file of an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of the manuscript. The manuscript will undergo copyediting,(More)
Adrenoleukodystrophy is an X-linked metabolic disorder with very-long-chain fatty acid (VLCFA) accumulation and multifocal nervous system demyelination, often with early involvement of visual pathways. Dietary therapy with glycerol trioleate and glycerol trierucate (Lorenzo oil) diminishes VLCFA levels. In a study of patients with the adrenomyeloneuropathy(More)
A number of gender differences have been documented in the incidence and symptomatology of the second most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder, idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD). Overall, previous reports suggest a less frequent incidence and a more benign phenotype in women mainly in Western populations, which is thought to be mediated by(More)
Neuroborreliosis, a tick-borne spirochaetosis of the central nervous system, is diagnosed by the presence of intrathecally synthesized Borrelia burgdorferi-specific antibodies. Multiple sclerosis and neuroborreliosis can show similarities in clinical symptoms as well as lymphocytic cell reactions and oligoclonal bands in the isoelectric focusing of(More)
A typical feature of Parkinson's disease (PD) is pathological activity in the subthalamic nucleus (STN). Here, we tested whether in patients with PD under dopaminergic treatment functional connectivity of the STN differs from healthy controls (HC) and whether some brain regions show (anti-) correlations between functional connectivity with STN and motor(More)
BACKGROUND Idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (iRBD) has been increasingly acknowledged to be an initial specific manifestation of alpha-synucleinopathies such as Parkinson's disease (PD), multiple system atrophy (MSA) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Recent findings suggest that cutaneous abnormalities like small fiber(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of maturity, assessed as difference between chronological age and age at peak height velocity, on heart rate (HR) responses to maximal and submaximal laboratory and field exercises. Twenty-eight postpubescent female volleyball players participated in the present study (age 13.8 (0.6) yr, body mass 62.5 (8.2)(More)
