Event-related desynchronization to contingent negative variation and self-paced movement paradigms in Parkinson's disease.
The event-related desynchronization (ERD) to voluntary movement is an indicator of cortical activation with a high time resolution and a specific spatial representation. We have evaluated 10 patientsExpand

Brain structural and functional connectivity in Parkinson's disease with freezing of gait
To use a multimodal approach to assess brain structural pathways and resting state (RS) functional connectivity abnormalities in patients with Parkinson's disease and freezing of gait (PD‐FoG).

Brain plasticity in Parkinson’s disease with freezing of gait induced by action observation training
Gait disorders represent a therapeutic challenge in Parkinson’s disease (PD). This study investigated the efficacy of 4-week action observation training (AOT) on disease severity, freezing of gaitExpand

Axonal damage and loss of connectivity in nigrostriatal and mesolimbic dopamine pathways in early Parkinson's disease
A progressive loss of dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra (SN) is considered the main feature of idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD). Recent neuropathological evidence however suggests that theExpand

Excitatory Deep Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation With H-coil as Add-on Treatment of Motor Symptoms in Parkinson's Disease: An Open Label, Pilot Study
BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been proposed as a potential treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). H-coils, inducing deeper and wider magnetic fields compared toExpand

Clinical assessment of dysphagia in early phases of Parkinson's disease
Abstract. Dysphagia is a frequent symptom in parkinsonism, but it is less commonly reported by patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD), especially in the early phases. Sixty-five patientsExpand

Correlations between cognitive impairment, middle cerebral artery flow velocity and cortical glucose metabolism in the early phase of Alzheimer's disease.
In a previous transcranial Doppler (TCD) study, we demonstrated a decrease in blood flow velocity in the proximal tract of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD).Expand

Cause and course in a series of patients with sporadic chorea
Abstract.Objective: To identify correlations between clinical and neuroimaging features in sporadic chorea and to explicate the evolution of choreas of differing aetiologies. Methods: We analysed theExpand

Pisa syndrome in Parkinson disease
Objective: To estimate the prevalence of Pisa syndrome (PS) in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) and to assess the association between PS and demographic and clinical variables. Methods: In thisExpand
