We describe two patients and a previously reported patient who acquired unique pendular vergence oscillations of the eyes and concurrent contractions of the masticatory muscles, i.e., oculomasticatory myorhythmia (OMM). The smooth disjunctive eye movements cycled with a frequency of 0.8 to 1.2 Hz. An analysis of peak velocities (15 to 200 degrees/sec) with(More)
Blood levels and electroencephalographic (EEG) data were collected for 2 hr after single oral doses of bromazepam (9 mg), diazepam (10 mg), and placebo in 13 male adult volunteers. Both drugs caused an increase in beta activity (above 13 Hz) and a decrease in alpha activity (9 to 11 Hz) in the EEG. Blood levels of 100 ng/ml of diazepam or 50 ng/ml of(More)
Mutant isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) is common in gliomas, and produces D-2-hydroxyglutarate (D-2-HG). The full effects of IDH1 mutations on glioma biology and tumor microenvironment are unknown. We analyzed a discovery cohort of 169 World Health Organization (WHO) grade II-IV gliomas, followed by a validation cohort of 148 cases, for IDH1 mutations,(More)
