Limbic encephalitis (LE) associated with glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies (GAD-Ab) is rare. We describe a 30-year-old male with acute LE and GAD-Ab, with follow-up during 2 years of cognitive status including verbal episodic memory, number of seizures recorded by high-resolution video-EEG, brain MRI, 2-[18F]-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose PET and GAD-Ab(More)
BACKGROUND Memory for the past has been much less explored than anterograde memory in temporal lobe epilepsy. No data are available about the course after surgical treatment. Moreover, case-reports showing isolated memory deficit for publics events with preserved autobiographical memory are notorious for their paucity. METHODS We report the case of a(More)
The aims of the present study were (i) to explore autobiographical memory and episodic future thought in multiple sclerosis (MS), using Levine's Autobiographical Interview; (ii) to investigate the influence of the Interview's high retrieval support condition (the specific probe phase) on MS patients' past and future simulations and (iii) to obtain the(More)
Refined investigation of infrequent dissociations within remote memory, such as preservation of autobiographical episodic memory and selective impairment of public semantic memory could provide some insight on the interactions of long-term memory systems and their underlying brain correlates. Combining clinical neuropsychological and neuroimaging methods in(More)
We analyzed the outpatient otologic surgery experience at our institution to identify those factors that are associated with a high risk of postoperative complications that require an unplanned hospital admission. We found that among a group of 662 patients who underwent group II otologic procedures (i.e., tympanoplasty with or without mastoidectomy,(More)
INTRODUCTION Several studies have assessed the impact of surgery on both anterograde and remote memory in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). The majority of results have shown an extensive memory deficit in patients after temporal resection (TL). However, few protocols have used a prospective longitudinal design. Moreover, the postoperative delays(More)
PURPOSE Seizure frequency, although considered as an important factor in memory impairment in mesial temporal epilepsy (mTLE), is mostly confounded with other clinical variables, making it unclear to what extent recurrent seizures actually interfere with memory. The present study focuses on the influence of seizure frequency, studied as a main variable, on(More)
This preliminary study tackles the assessment and treatment of autobiographical memory (AbM) in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RR-MS) patients. Our aim was to investigate cerebral activation changes, following clinical improvement of AbM due to a cognitive training based on mental visual imagery (MVI). We assessed AbM using the Autobiographical(More)
The multifocal nature of lesions in multiple sclerosis hints at the occurrence of autobiographical memory (AbM) impairment. However, the dearth of studies on AbM in multiple sclerosis is noticeable, notwithstanding the importance of AbM in everyday life. In the first section of this study, 25 multiple sclerosis patients and 35 controls underwent a detailed(More)
Our aim was to investigate the functional underpinnings of autobiographical memory (AM) impairment in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. To that end, 18 patients and 18 controls underwent the autobiographical interview (AI). Subsequently, the 36 participants underwent a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) session designed to assess the construction(More)
