BACKGROUND Behavioral and cognitive problems are frequently encountered in juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). The underlying mechanisms are unknown. Based on previous data showing that the dopamine system is involved in motor as well as cognitive functions, we tested whether JME may be associated with changes in this system, and if such changes are linked(More)
BACKGROUND Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is classified as primarily generalized epilepsy and as such is assumed to lack an anatomic substrate. Although neurochemical abnormalities are probable, few studies have investigated whether they exist in JME. Animal data and the high incidence of myoclonic seizures in serotonin-intoxicated patients suggest that(More)
The recent availability of inexpensive hardware such as CMOS and CCD cameras has enabled the new research field of wireless multimedia sensor networks. This is a network of interconnected devices capable of retreiving multimedia content from the environment. In this type of network the nodes usually have very limited resources in terms of processing power,(More)
Remacemide hydrochloride is a low-affinity, non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor channel blocker, under investigation in epilepsy. This double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre study assessed the safety and efficacy of remacemide hydrochloride or placebo, as adjunctive therapy, in 252 adult patients with refractory epilepsy who were(More)
This thesis presents a brief investigation into the concept of using PDAs as wearable computers. The main focus is to find out that, do PDAs provide a hardware platform for wearable computing? Another important part of the investigation is to find out the suitable software platform (operating system) for proposed PDA based wearable computers. Different(More)
