There is a little mention of cerebral blood vessel examinations in the guidelines of the American(More)
The effect of hyperthermia on cognitive function remains equivocal, perhaps because of methodological discrepancy. Using electroencephalographic event-related potentials (ERPs), we tested the hypothesis that a passive heat stress impairs cognitive processing. Thirteen volunteers performed repeated auditory oddball paradigms under two thermal conditions,(More)
An autopsied case of postencephalitic parkinsonism of von Economo type with a 71-year duration is reported. Several cases of postencephalitic parkinsonism of von Economo type have been reported in Japan but this is the first reported case from western Japan. The patient was a Japanese man who was 74 years of age at the time of death. He developed(More)
We report herein the case of a 38-year-old woman in whom a large tumor, 15 cm in diameter, was detected in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. The tumor was removed and histological examination indicated that it was an inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT). IPT is not completely understood, but according to the few documented cases of IPT of the abdomen, its(More)
We herein investigated the effects of face/head and whole body cooling during passive heat stress on human somatosensory processing recorded by somatosensory-evoked potentials (SEPs) at C4' and Fz electrodes. Fourteen healthy subjects received a median nerve stimulation at the left wrist. SEPs were recorded at normothermic baseline (Rest), when esophageal(More)
