BACKGROUND Foundations and aim of the study: Right development of cognitive functions is one of the basal factors, which determines good realization of the developmental tasks, for example achievement in education. Primary headaches especially migraine can be one of the important factor disturbing cognitive functioning of children and adolescents. The aim(More)
INTRODUCTION Long latency auditory evoked potentials, especially P300, are a clinically relevant method for evaluation of the cognitive function. They are an objective and non-invasive procedure and a recommended standard for clinical evaluation of mental processing. AIM OF THE STUDY In order to evaluate the results of epilepsy treatment in children and(More)
P300 is a manifestation of activity in a limited capacity system "whose use in the service of different tasks is under relative control by instruction". It is accepted as an objective correlate of mental processing involved in the allocation of attentional resources when immediate memory is engaged. The aim of this study was to evaluate cognitive function(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to estimate the effects of Vigabatrin (VGB) as add-on therapy on visual (VEP) and brain-stem (BAEP) evoked potentials. METHOD The investigation covered 100 epileptic patients from 8 to 18 years of age. The treatment included therapy with carbamazepine (CBZ) or valproate acid (VPA) using slow release formulations of(More)
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is the most common acquired polyradiculoneuropathy in childhood. It has been conventionally regarded as a disease exclusively of the peripheral nervous system. The involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) in patients with GBS has been rarely described. The purpose of the study was to delineate the extent of subclinical(More)
The measurement of evoked potentials (EPs) may be particularly useful in clinical neuropharmacology for investigation of drug effects of afferent nerve conduction within CNS. The study aims at estimating the long term effects of conventional or slow release formulation (CR) of carbamazepine (CBZ) and valproid acid (VPA) on visual (VPA) and brainstem(More)
INTRODUCTION Headaches in children and adolescents are the most common complaints in neurological practice. More than 90% of those are diagnosed as having migraine or tension-type headache (TTH). Memory disturbances are the most frequently observed symptoms in these patients. Event related potentials ( ERP), especially P300 potential reflect the processes(More)
UNLABELLED Neurophysiological examinations, especially auditory evoked potentials which enable us to make the neurophysiological evaluation of the auditory pathway play an important role in the explanation of pathophysiology of primary headaches, especially migraine. The functional neuroimaging studies in patients with migraine during pain attacks have(More)
UNLABELLED To differentiate clinically migraine, especially without aura, from tension-type headache (TTH), especially an episodic one, in patients in the developmental age may become a difficult task. The reason is the similarities of clinical symptoms in both types of headaches. The results of examinations published so far do not explain satisfactorily(More)
Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) are responses which appear under the influence of sensory stimuli, producing a series of bioelectric changes in the peripheral and central nervous system. Particular components of SEP are recorded from the stimulation point-at the wrist--of the examined median nerve through the brachial plexus, spinal cord and(More)
