Recent neuroimaging studies show that brain abnormalities in neuromyelitis optica (NMO) are more frequent than earlier described. Yet, more research considering multiple aspects of NMO is necessary to better understand these abnormalities. A clinical feature of relapsing NMO (RNMO) is that the incremental disability is attack-related. Therefore, association(More)
This article, based on personal experiences with a network of organizations of small and medium agricultural producers in Central America, aims to present the views of peasant organizations concerning agrarian problems in the region. The 3 major sections of work define the place of peasant agriculture in the traditional agrarian structure and the new(More)
Identification and localization of epileptogenic zone (EZ) is vital in patients with medically-intractable focal epilepsy, who may be candidates for potentially curative resective epilepsy surgery. Presence of a lesion on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) influences both diagnostic classification and selection for surgery. However, the implications for(More)
BACKGROUND Voxel-based morphometric (VBM) studies in neuromyelitis optica (NMO) have shown limited reproducibility. A previous study suggests that the number of optic neuritis (ON) attacks may be a confounding factor when comparing NMO patients with controls if it is not taken into account during VBM analysis. PURPOSE To investigate the potential(More)
To optimize spatial resolution in single photon emission tomography (SPET), it is essential to minimize the radius of rotation. In brain studies, different methods have been used to avoid shoulder interference when the radius of rotation is minimized: rectangular fields of view, modifications to the shielding around circular detectors and fan or cone beam(More)
