MRI study of human brain exposed to weak direct current stimulation of the frontal cortex
OBJECTIVE To determine whether weak transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), which is an interesting new tool inducing prolonged cortical excitability shifts in humans, induces brain edema,Expand

Comparison of CT, MRI and FDG-PET in response prediction of patients with locally advanced rectal cancer after multimodal preoperative therapy: Is there a benefit in using functional imaging?
The aim of this study was to compare CT, MRI and FDG-PET in the prediction of outcome of neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy in patients with locally advanced primary rectal cancer. A total of 23 patientsExpand

Long-term effects of pallidal deep brain stimulation in tardive dystonia
Objective: High-frequency stimulation of the globus pallidus internus (GPi) is a highly effective therapy in primary dystonia. Recent reports have also demonstrated almost immediate improvement ofExpand

Autosomal recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix Saguenay (ARSACS): expanding the genetic, clinical and imaging spectrum
BackgroundMutations in SACS, leading to autosomal-recessive spastic ataxia of Charlevoix-Saguenay (ARSACS), have been identified as a frequent cause of recessive early-onset ataxia around the world.Expand

Post-mortem studies in glioblastoma patients treated with thermotherapy using magnetic nanoparticles.
Patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common primary brain tumor in adults, have still a poor prognosis though new strategies of radio- and chemotherapy have been developed. Recently,Expand

Pallidal and thalamic deep brain stimulation in myoclonus‐dystonia
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the internal globus pallidus (GPi) and ventral intermediate thalamic nucleus (VIM) are established treatment options in primary dystonia and tremor syndromes and haveExpand

Gamma activity and reactivity in human thalamic local field potentials
Depth recordings in patients with Parkinson’s disease on dopaminergic therapy have revealed a tendency for oscillatory activity in the basal ganglia that is sharply tuned to frequencies of ∼70 Hz andExpand

Oscillatory pallidal local field potential activity correlates with involuntary EMG in dystonia
The pathophysiology of dystonia is unclear. The authors recorded local field potentials (LFPs) from deep brain stimulation electrodes implanted in the pallidum of 13 dystonic patients. LFP powerExpand

Early-onset ALS with long-term survival associated with spastin gene mutation
The authors report a 73-year-old patient with a natural history of early-onset ALS for 49 years presenting with limb and bulbar amyotrophy and a pyramidal syndrome. Analysis of the locus SPG4Expand

Automated Optimization of Subcortical Cerebral MR Imaging−Atlas Coregistration for Improved Postoperative Electrode Localization in Deep Brain Stimulation
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The efficacy of deep brain stimulation in treating movement disorders depends critically on electrode localization, which is conventionally described by using coordinatesExpand
