Functional neuroimaging studies of cue-elicited craving in smokers have identified a distributed system of brain activation which includes the frontal cortex. As electroencephalographic (EEG) activity recorded from frontal brain regions indexes emotive functions, which are believed to play a key role in craving processes, this study examined frontal EEG in(More)
Using sophisticated recording equipment and two fine copper wire electrodes introduced through the cystoscope into the bladder muscle of conscious patients at cystoscopy, reproducible electromyographic recordings were obtained from the normal and the neuropathic bladders of a group of patients. By means of simultaneous recording of the electromyographic(More)
The usefulness of rapid anti-epileptic drug assay in a paediatric neurology clinic was assessed. Compared with a method in which results were not available for seven to 10 days, there was an increased likelihood that levels would be within the target range, particularly for carbamazepine. Increased parental discussion, and therefore involvement with dosage,(More)
Simultaneous electromyographic (EMG) recordings from the bladder detrusor muscle and the inferior rectus abdominis muscle were made in six normal subjects, in four patients with lower motor neuron bladder disease and in two patients with an upper motor neuron type of bladder lesion. Results of the study demonstrate that the bladder electrodes do not record(More)
