To investigate human corticobulbar projections, electromyographic responses from orbicularis oculi and orbicularis oris muscles were recorded in 11 healthy subjects after transcranial magnetic stimulation. Selective activation of lower facial motoneurones of one hemisphere was reached with the round coil 4 cm lateral to the vertex on a line to the external(More)
AIM To determine the stimulation site of both facial and hypoglossal nerves after transcranial magnetic stimulation. METHODS After surgical exposure of the brainstem in 22 patients with intrinsic pontine (n=9) or medullary (n=13) tumors, the facial colliculus and the hypoglossal triangle were electrically stimulated. The EMG responses were recorded with(More)
Behavioural disturbances are prominent in frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a focal, non-Alzheimer type of dementia. Although most patients with FTD present with socially inappropriate behaviour, compulsive-like acts, poor insight and disinhibition, the presence of psychiatric features including delusions, hallucinations, and paranoia can lead to a(More)
Frontotemporal dementias (FTD) are the second most common type of presenile dementias, considered to be clinically and pathologically different from Alzheimer's dementia (AD). FTD differs clinically from AD because memory loss is rarely an early symptom. Instead, FTD is usually denoted by behavioural and language difficulties, and may co-occur with motor(More)
The effects of chronic exposure to xylene on cognitive ability were studied in a group of 35 medical workers occupationally exposed to low-level concentrations of xylene for at least five years by using event-related potentials (ERPs), and compared with a control group of 21 subjects. The exposure to xylene was confirmed through determination of(More)
Brainstem auditory evoked responses (BAERs) were recorded in 30 patients with brainstem lesions. The aim of the study was to find the correlation between an abnormal BAER and the adequate level of a brainstem lesion. The correlation noted between an abnormal BAER and level of a brainstem lesion (medulla, pons, midbrain) was not statistically significant (p(More)
