Neuroscience in Nazi Europe Part II: Resistance against the Third Reich
  • L. A. Zeidman
  • Medicine, Philosophy
  • Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences…
  • 1 November 2011
TLDR
The neuroscientists who resisted had different backgrounds and motivations that likely influenced their behavior, but this group undoubtedly saved lives of colleagues, friends, and patients, or at least prevented forced sterilizations. Expand
Declining Use of the Hallervorden–Spatz Disease Eponym in the Last Two Decades
TLDR
The significant decrease in unqualified use of Hallervorden–Spatz disease is reassuring, and all recent editions of neurology textbooks using pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration instead is reassuring. Expand
Immunoglobulin for concurrent Guillain-Barré and immune thrombocytopenic purpura.
TLDR
The case provides further evidence that Guillain-Barré syndrome and immune thrombocytopenic purpura can occur simultaneously, as well as suggesting that the prompt initiation of intravenous immunoglobulin is an effective monotherapy leading to prompt resolution of both conditions and prevention of further sequelae. Expand
Peter Becker and His Nazi Past
TLDR
Peter Becker was a German neurologist who helped classify the muscular dystrophies, and described Becker muscular dystrophy and Becker myotonia, and wrote 2 books exploring the origins of Nazism and racial hygiene. Expand
Adolf Wallenberg: Giant in Neurology and Refugee from Nazi Europe
TLDR
Adolf Wallenberg became the “anatomical conscience” to at least one famed neurologist, and was known worldwide by top neurologists, despite being stripped of his research laboratory and forced to stop working when the Nazis took over his native Danzig. Expand
RE: Neuroscience in Nazi Europe Part I: Eugenics, Human Experimentation, and Mass Murder
  • L. A. Zeidman
  • Medicine
  • Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences…
  • 1 May 2012
TLDR
This review focuses on neuroscientists not well described in the neurology literature, including Scholz, Ostertag, Schneider, Nachtsheim, and von Weizsäcker, who were collaborators in the Nazis' sterilization campaign against "mental defectives". Expand
Advances in the Management of Small Fiber Neuropathy.
TLDR
Testing methods have emerged in recent years to better diagnose small fiber neuropathy, including autonomic tests and skin punch biopsy, and ongoing trials attempt to establish the efficacy of intravenous immunoglobulin in inflammatory SFN syndromes. Expand
Growth rate of non-operated meningiomas
TLDR
The mean volumetric growth rate was significantly greater than the planimetric growth rates, suggesting that volumetrical measurement conveys more information and is superior in assessing tumor growth. Expand
Susac syndrome with transient inverted vision
TLDR
A 41-year-old woman with Susac syndrome had multiple episodes of alternating hemiparesis, lasting 30 minutes, occurring infrequently during a 3-month period, and experienced the sudden perception of complete inversion of the visual world, with a sensation that her surroundings were upside down.
