Volumetry of hippocampus and amygdala with high-resolution MRI and three-dimensional analysis software: minimizing the discrepancies between laboratories.
TLDR
Results indicate that the advances in scanning technique, volume preparation and segmentation protocols allow a more precise definition of medial temporal lobe structures with MRI, and that results for mean volumes for hippocampus and amygdala from different laboratories will eventually become comparable. Expand
Texture analysis of medical images.
TLDR
The principles of texture analysis are clarified and examples of its applications are given, reviewing studies of the technique. Expand
Reconstruction of damaged corneas by transplantation of autologous limbal epithelial cells.
TLDR
Transplantation of autologous lim bal epithelial cells cultured on amniotic membrane is a simple and effective method of reconstructing the corneal surface and restoring useful vision in patients with unilateral deficiency of limbal epithelium. Expand
Voxel-based morphometry in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsies
TLDR
MRI voxel-based morphometry results suggest the existence of different patterns of cortical abnormalities in IGE subsyndromes, and support subtle GMC abnormalities in patients with JME and AE when compared to controls. Expand
Brain stimulation modulates the autonomic nervous system, rating of perceived exertion and performance during maximal exercise
TLDR
The findings suggest that non-invasive brain stimulation over the TC modulates the ANS activity and the sensory perception of effort and exercise performance, indicating that the brain plays a crucial role in the exercise performance regulation. Expand
Thalamic Dysfunction in Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy: A Proton MRS Study
TLDR
The aim is to investigate neuronal dysfunction in the thalami of patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy by using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to study the role of proton-proton collisions in neuronal dysfunction. Expand
Voxel-based morphometry reveals gray matter network atrophy in refractory medial temporal lobe epilepsy.
TLDR
Patients with MTLE exhibit a reduction in GMC in regions outside the temporal lobe, specifically in areas that are connected to the hippocampus and parahippocampal region, suggesting an anatomical route for atrophy. Expand
Longitudinal analysis of regional grey matter loss in Huntington disease: effects of the length of the expanded CAG repeat
TLDR
It is confirmed that brain atrophy progresses after the clinical onset of HD and that regional atrophy is related to symptom severity, and also indicates that intensity and rate of progression ofbrain atrophy are more pronounced in patients with larger, expanded CAG repeat sequences. Expand
Longitudinal analysis of gray and white matter loss in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
It is concluded that brain tissue loss associated with SLE is significant and progresses over a relatively short period of time. Expand
Can exercise shape your brain? Cortical differences associated with judo practice.
TLDR
Comparison between a group of eight internationally competitive judo players and a groups of 18 healthy controls showed a significantly higher gray matter tissue density in brain areas of judoPlayers. Expand
