Resonance in thalamocortical networks is critically involved in sculpting oscillatory behavior in large ensembles of neocortical cells. Neocortical oscillations provide critical information about the integrity of thalamocortical circuits and functional connectivity of cortical networks, which seem to be significantly disrupted by the neuronal death and(More)
We retrospectively analyzed six cases of abdominal cystic lymphangiomas (CL), who had undergone surgical resection. These cases had been evaluated by several modalities: ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), angiography and fine needle aspiration. No age predilection was found. All patients were symptomatic. The most common presenting symptoms(More)
Neuropathological studies suggest that the basal forebrain cholinergic system (BFCS) is affected in Alzheimer's disease (AD), but there is no in vivo evidence of early damage to this system in subjects at high risk of developing AD. Here, we found that mild cognitive impairment (MCI) patients exhibited significant volume reduction of the nucleus basalis of(More)
The aim of this work is to describe the image findings of renal hydatid disease, especially on MR. Four cases of echinococcal involvement of the kidney were retrospectively reviewed. All patients had intravenous urography (IVU) and US performed. Computed tomography examination was available in three patients and MR in two cases. Intravenous urography(More)
The use of intracarotid propofol procedure (IPP) when assessing musical lateralization has not been reported in literature up to now. This procedure (similar to Wada Test) has provided the opportunity to investigate not only lateralization of language and memory functions on epileptic patients but also offers a functional mapping approach with superior(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate a training course on acute ischemic stroke (AIS) for hospital physicians, part of a regional strategy on AIS patient care. The course comprised an initial self-study (e-Learning) stage and 1-day theoretical-practical course on initial AIS management for Critical Care and Emergency physicians in the Andalusian(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency, associated factors and outcome of dementia previous to a stroke. DESIGN Cross-sectional study of a cohort of 324 consecutive unselected stroke patients (mean age 70.9 years, range 20-98; 255 ischaemic, 46 haemorrhagic and 25 indefinite). METHODS Cognitive and functional status prior to stroke were assessed by means(More)
The diagnosis of urethral diverticula in women can be difficult. Several imaging modalities have been described for evaluating this entity: urethrography; transabdominal, transrectal, transvaginal, and transperineal ultrasonography; computed tomography (CT); and magnetic resonance (MR) can be helpful in evaluating a diverticulum and its relationship to the(More)
