The definitive diagnosis of the type of epilepsy, if it exists, in medication-resistant seizure disorder is based on the efficient combination of clinical information, long-term video-electroencephalography (EEG) and neuroimaging. Diagnoses are reached by a consensus panel that combines these diverse modalities using clinical wisdom and experience. Here we… (More)
The application of machine learning to epilepsy can be used both to develop clinically useful computer-aided diagnostic tools, and to reveal pathologically relevant insights into the disease. Such studies most frequently use neurologically normal patients as the control group to maximize the pathologic insight yielded from the model. This practice yields… (More)
The treatment of a case of quinine amblyopia by stellate ganglion blockade is described. The degree of restoration of vision confirms the experience of other workers and is attributable to relief of retinal vasoconstriction. The possibility is discussed that earlier and more prolonged use of the technique might improve results.
