Characteristic movement disorders were observed in two siblings who had neuroacanthocytosis syndrome with normal serum lipoprotein levels. The disorders included orolingual tic-like movements associated with vocalization, biting of the lip and tongue, peculiar dysphagia with bird-like drinking, and postural lapse with abrupt buckling of the knees.

In six patients with CT evidence of posterior thalamic hemorrhage, we found the following signs: saccadic hypometria away from the lesion; defective pursuit toward the lesion with corresponding opticokinetic abnormalities; mild ipsilateral ptosis; ipsilateral miosis; unilateral sensory neglect; and sensorimotor hemiparesis. This distinct syndrome has a(More)
Event-related desynchronization (ERD) of the electroencephalogram (EEG) from the motor cortex is associated with execution, observation, and mental imagery of motor tasks. Generation of ERD by motor imagery (MI) has been widely used for brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) linked to neuroprosthetics and other motor assistance devices. Control of MI-based BCIs(More)
Event-related desynchronization/synchronization (ERD/ERS) is a relative power decrease/increase of electroencephalogram (EEG) in a specific frequency band during physical motor execution and mental motor imagery, thus it is widely used for the brain-computer interface (BCI) purpose. However what the ERD really reflects and its frequency band specific role(More)
Recently there has been an increase in the number of stroke patients with motor paralysis. Appropriate re-afferent sensory feedback synchronized with a voluntary motor intention would be effective for promoting neural plasticity in the stroke rehabilitation. Therefore, BCI technology is considered to be a promising approach in the neuro-rehabilitation. To(More)
Localized polymorphic delta wave activity appears ipsilaterally in patients with intracerebral hematoma without a shift of midline structures, regardless of the location of hematoma. Appearance of delta wave slowing after thalamic bleeding is quite variable, however, and may produce localized slowing or unilateral diffuse polymorphic delta wave activity.(More)
