OBJECTIVE Selective impairment of executive function has been shown in Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients undergoing Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) of the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN). However, some patients experience difficulties in daily life, such as dissension in interpersonal relationships or a loss of lifestyle balance, in the short term after surgery. Our(More)
BACKGROUND Although exercise is believed to reduce the risk of rupture of the myotendinous junction, exercise-induced structural changes in this region have not been studied. We examined exercise-induced ultrastructural changes in the myotendinous junction of the lower legs in rats. METHODS Ten adult male LETO rats were used. Five rats were randomly(More)
BACKGROUND : Stroke patients experience postural instability that can impede functional improvements in their gait. However, the precise functions of the dominant and non-dominant hemispheres in controlling static standing posture and weight-bearing remain unclear. OBJECTIVE : To investigate differences in balancing ability between right-handed patients(More)
Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN DBS) is an effective treatment for medically refractory Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, a minority of patients develop cognitive problems, particularly a decline of executive function in the early period after STN DBS. Although this problem is usually transient, it may cause social maladjustment. We(More)
AIM Neurological symptom severity is a prognostic factor for post-stroke activities of daily living (ADL). Recently, it has been reported that white matter lesions indicate poor functional prognosis in patients with stroke. The present study investigated the influence of white matter lesions on the ADL of older patients with stroke who have mild(More)
