Experience-induced plastic changes in the cerebral cortex are accompanied by alterations in excitatory and inhibitory transmission. Increased excitatory drive, necessary for plasticity, precedes the occurrence of plastic change, while decreased inhibitory signaling often facilitates plasticity. However, an increase of inhibitory interactions was noted in(More)
Although the commercial availability and implementation of virtual reality interfaces has seen rapid growth in recent years, little research has been conducted on the potential for virtual reality to affect consumer behavior. One unaddressed issue is how our real world attitudes are affected when we have a virtual experience with the target of those(More)
OBJECTIVES Autoimmune thyroid diseases (ATDs) frequently accompany myasthenia gravis (MG) and may influence its course. We aimed to determine the association and impact of ATD with early- (<50 years), late-onset MG, or thymoma-MG. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prevalence of ATD was measured in a cross-sectional study of 343 consecutive patients with MG (236 F,(More)
In spite of the prevalence of frustration in everyday life, very few neuroimaging studies were focused on this emotional state. In the current study we aimed to examine effects of frustration on brain activity while performing a well-learned task in participants with low and high tolerance for arousal. Prior to the functional magnetic resonance imaging(More)
x-ray microcomputed tomography, bone mineral density, mechanical strength The article describes the concept of measurement of the mechanical strength of trabecular bone dissected from human femoral head. When the studies are performed based on the human trabecular bone, there is a risk that correlation can be not achieved due to high discrepancy in the(More)
Introduction: A growing body of research findings has implicated aberrant white matter connectivity in the neuropathophysiology of bipolar disorder (BD). While the extent to which such abnormalities are related to disease onset and course is yet uncertain, recent findings support the validity of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) as a means of exploring the(More)
The authors describe a suggested scale for quantitative evaluation of the clinical condition of patients with acute ischaemic-hypoxaemic hemispheric syndrome supporting the objective value of the scale with the results of arteriographic investigations done in 340 patients. An advantage of the proposed scale is seen by the authors in its simplicity which(More)
