BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has shown significant efficiency in the treatment of several psychiatric disorders. In depressive disorders, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) is the main target for rTMS, but the effects of this stimulation on cognitive functions and their neural correlates are not well known.

BACKGROUND High frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) has shown significant efficiency in the treatment of resistant depression. However in healthy subjects, the effects of rTMS remain unclear. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to determine the impact of 10 sessions of rTMS applied to the(More)
Benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) is a form of focal dystonia, characterized by excessive involuntary closure of the eyelids due to spasms in orbicularis oculi muscles. Its prevalence ranges from 5 to 13 per 100,000 individuals [1]. It preferentially affects people aged 50–70 years [2]. BEB etiology is not well known, although different hypotheses have(More)
Synovial chondromatosis is a rare metaplasia of the synovium of unknown etiology that may involve occasionally the subacromial bursa. We report a new case diagnosed by ultrasound in a 30-year-old man and we present pathogenetic, diagnostic and therapeutic features of this disease with a literature review.
Therapies based on cognitive remediation integrate psychiatric care. Cognitive remediation helps to ease cognitive disorders and enable patients to improve their day-to-day lives. It is essential to complete nurses' training in this field. This article presents the example of a patient with schizophrenia who followed the Cognitive Remediation Therapy(More)
INTRODUCTION Carotid body tumors are rare hypervascular lesions arising from neural crest paraganglion cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the imaging features of six patients with carotid body tumors to precise their imaging characteristics in order to find specific signs and elaborate a strategy for diagnosis. RESULTS Imaging(More)
Pulmonary angiosarcoma is an uncommon vascular and usually secondary tumor. Only a few primary cases of pulmonary angiosarcoma have been described. We report a case of primary pulmonary angiosarcoma in an adult man who presented with hemoptysis. Chest x-ray film and chest CT showed a right para-cardiac opacity associated with diffuse alveolar consolidation(More)
BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation has been explored in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, but with negative or conflicting results. This randomized double-blind study was designed to assess the efficacy of 1-Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation over the presupplementary area. METHODS Forty medication-resistant(More)
