INTRODUCTION Middle latency evoked potentials include a series of evoked responses which encompass/include myogenic potentials (which translate the existence of sonomotor reflexes), and others which are clearly of neurogenic origin. The latter are the most useful from the clinical point of view. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of monoaural (MA) and(More)
PURPOSE Bone marrow stem cells (BMSC) were transplanted into the perilesional area in five patients bearing sequels of stroke, to evaluate the safety of the procedure and tolerance to the transplanted cells. METHODS Cells were obtained from bone marrow samples taken from the same patient and stereotactically implanted into the targets, determined using a(More)
We studied cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lesions in three women with acute attacks of recurrent longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (r-LETM), recurrent-optic neuritis (r-ON) and r-LETM-CNS. Neuromyelitis Optica -immunoglobulin (IgG) antibody was positive in all cases. Brain MRI (1.5 Tesla) was performed according to protocol from(More)
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the effects of the anterior temporal lobectomy on the functional state of the auditory pathway in a group of drug-resistant epileptic patients, linking the electrophysiological results to the resection magnitude. Twenty-seven patients with temporal lobe epilepsy and a matched control group were studied. Auditory(More)
INTRODUCTION Corpora amylacea (CoA) are present in about 60% of atrophic hippocampi resected from patients with drug resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (DRTLE). They have also been described in the lateral temporal neocortex, although less frequently. OBJECTIVE The objective is to measure the presence, distribution and density of CoA in the lateral temporal(More)
The animal model of aged monkeys is a good homologue of Alzheimer's disease in humans, in which it has been shown that there is disproportionate slowing of the EEG when compared with healthy subjects paired for age. This is found both on the conventional EEG and quantitatively. In the latter, relative energy has been the measurement most commonly used for(More)
AIMS Given the diversity of criteria regarding the use of the midlatency auditory evoked potential (MLAEP) for diagnostic purposes, we carry out a review of the subject and highlight areas such as the generators of fundamental components, the conditions in which responses are obtained, factors that can modify results and the clinical uses that have been(More)
AIM Auditory mid-latency response (MLR) has been studied in temporal lobe epileptic patients in order to evaluate the relationship between the different components of this evoked response and their probable generators in the most rostral part of auditory pathway. PATIENTS AND METHODS MLR was studied in eight patients with temporal lobe epilepsy before(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiple sclerosis (MS) has been considered to be an uncommon disorder in Cuba. In recent years many Cuban investigators have worked hard studying MS in Cuba. DEVELOPMENT We review the history, epidemiology, clinical characteristics, complementary investigations and clinical trials of recent studies published in national and international(More)
