The authors represent a cooperative group of 15 institutions that examined the feasibility of using metabolic features observed in vivo with 1H-magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy to characterize brain tumors of the glial type. The institutions provided blinded, centralized MR spectroscopy data processing long with independent central review of MR(More)
OBJECT The aim of this study was better preoperative planning and direct application to intraoperative procedures through accurate coregistration of diffusion-tensor (DT) imaging-based tractography results and anatomical three-dimensional magnetic resonance images and subsequent importation of the combined images to a neuronavigation system (functional(More)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) were performed in six subjects during self-paced finger movement performance, tactile somatosensory stimulation and binaural auditory stimulation using identical stimulation paradigms. Both functional imaging modalities localized brain activity in adjacent areas of anatomically(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we visualized the eloquent motor system including the somatosensory-motor cortex and corticospinal tract on a neuronavigation system, integrating magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and anisotropic diffusion-weighted MRI (ADWI). METHODS Four patients with brain lesions adjacent to the(More)
OBJECT There is continuous interest in the monitoring of language function during tumor resection around the frontotemporal regions of the dominant hemisphere. The aim of this study was to visualize language-related subcortical connections, such as the arcuate fasciculus (AF) by diffusion tensor (DT) imaging-based tractography. METHODS Twenty-two patients(More)
The authors describe the surgical technique of anterior cervical fusion using bone grafts obtained from cervical vertebral bodies. This series consisted of 90 patients with cervical intervertebral disc disease suffering from cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Thirty-five patients were operated on at one level, 33 at two levels, and 22 at three levels.(More)
OBJECTIVE It is known that functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) are sensitive to the frontal and temporal language function, respectively. Therefore, we established combined use of fMRI and MEG to make reliable identification of the global language dominance in pathological brain conditions. METHODS We investigated(More)
This case report describes a follow up investigation of a patient with impaired word discrimination due to mitochondrial encephalopathy with lactic acidosis and stroke-like syndrome (MELAS) using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H MRS) and auditory evoked magnetic fields (AEFs). The initial (1)H MRS showed no N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) and marked(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the 1-BuOH-soluble fraction of the MeOH extract of Alangium premnifolium resulted in the isolation of ten megastigmane glycosides, of which, two, (6R,9R)-3-oxo-alpha-ionol apiofuranosylglucopyranoside and roseoside with (6S,9R)-blumeol A as an aglycone were known. The structures of the eight new compounds were determined by(More)
The neuromagnetic activities evoked by semantic processing were localized by magnetoencephalography (MEG). We observed distinct time courses of the activities in native speaking Japanese subjects (Japanese speaker) and German subjects (German speaker) during silent reading of Japanese letters; Kanji and meaningless figures made by deforming the Arabian(More)
