Adverse Effects of Antiepileptic Drugs
The occurrence of weight change with AEDs is reviewed extensively, serving to illustrate how the principle factors can be used to avoid and manage adverse effects and where there is need for better studies of the short‐ and long‐term adverse effects of A EDs. Expand
l‐Carnitine Supplementation in Childhood Epilepsy: Current Perspectives
A panel of pediatric neurologists met in November 1996 and agreed that intravenous L‐carnitine supplementation is clearly indicated for valproate (VPA)‐induced hepatotoxicity, overdose, and other acute metabolic crises associated with carnitine deficiency. Expand
Quantitative mapping of glutamate presynaptic terminals in the supraoptic nucleus and surrounding hypothalamus
Results suggest that glutamate is the predominant excitatory transmitter used for control of vasopressin/oxytocin cells and the relative contribution of glutamate neurotransmission to a particular region will depend, in part, on the number and type of competing non-glutamate terminals. Expand
Glutamate receptors in the rat hypothalamus and pituitary.
Although several recent anatomical and physiological studies indicate that glutamate receptors are likely to play a role in the regulation of various hypothalamic functions, no attempt has yet beenExpand
Characteristics and frequency of seizure disorder in 56 patients with Prader–Willi syndrome
Characteristics and Frequency of Seizure Disorder in 56 Patients With Prader–Willi Syndrome Zheng Fan,* Robert Greenwood, Amy Fisher, Surekha Pendyal, and Cynthia M. Powell Department of Neurology,Expand
Feasibility and Acceptance of Salivary Monitoring of Antiepileptic Drugs Via the US Postal Service
Salivary and serum levels of phenobarbital, carbamazepine, and phenytoin are closely correlated and transit of saliva samples in the mail does not adversely affect accuracy of antiepileptic drug measurement. Expand
The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition
The shock absorber comprises a metal strip which includes a bend and two legs extending from said bend and including an angle at said bend. Said legs are profiled in cross-section opposite to eachExpand
Differential expression of five N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor subunit mRNAs in vasopressin and oxytocin neuroendocrine cells.
Observations in vasopressin and oxytocin cells provide the basis for a working model to investigate how differential NMDA receptor composition may shape the neurophysiological properties of neurons. Expand
Proton MR spectroscopy in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1: evaluation of hamartomas and clinical correlation.
Hamartomas have a proton MR spectroscopy pattern different from that of glioma and similar to that of normal brain, and patients who have neurofibromatosis type 1 with and without hamartomas seem to have normal intervening brain by protonMR spectroscope when compared with healthy volunteers. Expand
Morphometric and neuropsychologic studies in children with arachnoid cysts.
Patients with middle cranial fossa arachnoid cysts should undergo careful assessment of temporal lobe structure and function before any therapeutic intervention, and have significantly smaller left temporal lobes compared with the right side. Expand
