The origins of preganglionic vagal neurons which slow the heart in the rabbit have been examined with standard neurophysiological stimulation and recording techniques. The activity of 216 neurones projecting to the right cervical vagus nerve have been recorded in localized areas of the brain stem. Thirty-six of these neurones were classified as cardiomotor(More)

An Empty Sella occurs due to herniation of the arachnoid through an incompetent diaphragma sellae. Over time, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pulsations may enlarge the sella and compress the gland against the floor of the sella. Empty Sella Syndrome is a considered a less common entity and is usually asymptomatic and an incidental finding. However, it can be a(More)
In this case report, we present a rare complication of cortical blindness which is Anton Babinski syndrome. Patients with this syndrome usually disaffirm their blindness and confabulate to fill in missing visual information.

Intracranial hypotension (ICH) is a benign syndrome which is often under-diagnosed. It is characterized by orthostatic headache which is predominantly occipital. ICH is diagnosed in the presence of a typical history and characteristic imaging findings. Further confirmation by lumbar puncture to document low CSF pressure might be necessary in some cases.(More)
