Pantomimes of object use require accurate representations of movements and a selection of the most task-relevant gestures. Prominent models of praxis, corroborated by functional neuroimaging studies, predict a critical role for left parietal cortices in pantomime and advance that these areas store representations of tool use. In contrast, lesion data points(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the potential relationship between fatigue following strokes and poststroke mood, cognitive dysfunction, disability, and infarct site and to determine the predictive factors in the development of poststroke fatigue (PSF) following minor infarcts. METHODS Ninety-nine functionally active patients aged less than 70 years with a first,(More)
BACKGROUND The supplementary motor area (SMA) plays a key role in motor programming and production and is involved in internally-cued movements. In neurological populations, SMA syndrome following a lesion to the "SMA proper" is characterized by transient impairment of voluntary movements and motor sequences. This syndrome is assumed to follow on from an(More)
We are reporting 16 cases of toxocariasis found in a two year period. Mean age was 2 years and 9 months. Sex distribution was 1:1. Thirteen (81%) children presented pica, 8 (50%) had pets at home, 10 (62.5%) presented anemia and long standing fever, and all eosinophilic leukocytosis. Fundoscopy was normal in all. Toxocara antibodies (Through ELISA) were(More)
Aphasia in bilingual patients is a therapeutic challenge since both languages can be impacted by the same lesion. Language control has been suggested to play an important role in the recovery of first (L1) and second (L2) language in bilingual aphasia following stroke. To test this hypothesis, we collected behavioral measures of language production (general(More)
Based on findings for overlapping representations of bilingual people's first (L1) and second (L2) languages, unilingual therapies of bilingual aphasia have been proposed to benefit the untrained language. However, the generalisation patterns of intra- and cross-language and phonological therapy and their neural bases remain unclear. We tested whether the(More)

Translation is a demanding process during which a message is analyzed, translated and communicated from one language to another. Despite numerous studies on translation mechanisms, the electrophysiological processes underlying translation with overt production remain largely unexplored. Here, we investigated how behavioral response patterns and(More)
