Stereoscopic vision is based on small differences in both retinal images known as retinal disparities. We investigated the cortical responses to retinal disparities in a patient suffering from occipital epilepsy by recording evoked potentials to random dot stereograms (RDS) from subdural electrodes placed in the parieto-occipito-temporal junction, medial(More)
Infection with Leishmania infantum promastigotes (group I) and amastigotes (group II) was evaluated over 32 weeks, using Syrian golden hamsters as an experimental model. Spleen cells strongly responded to the specific antigen at 12 (group I) and 16 weeks (group II) post-inoculation (p.i.) and lower stimulation index values coincided with the parasite burden(More)
To investigate the hemifield dependence of visually evoked responses to colour in the human fusiform gyrus we recorded evoked potentials from subdural electrodes in a patient suffering from occipital epilepsy. The responses in the fusiform gyrus show a strong hemifield dependence and discriminate the onset from the offset of the stimulus. Additionally, we(More)
Catatonia is a large neuropsychiatric syndrome with multiple etiologies (psychiatric disorder, cerebral structural lesion, systemic disease, secondary to drugs and toxic agents) and varied clinical manifestations (cognitive and behavioral disorders, motor and speech disorders and vegetative disorders). The presence of disautonomy means a situation having(More)
