Response properties of neurons in the monkey's granular insula (Ig) were examined with somatic, auditory, visual, and gustatory stimuli. Results indicate that a major portion of Ig is a somatic processing area exclusively, with units that have large and often bilateral receptive fields, consistent with the view that this area serves as a higher-order,(More)
We report the seventh case of a self-limiting syndrome of brain, inner ear and retinal microangiopathy which affects adult women producing mild to moderate mental status and personality changes, mild pyramidal and cerebellar dysfunction, patchy and asymmetrical visual loss secondary to non-inflammatory retinal infarctions, and asymmetrical neurosensory(More)
A family had a dominantly inherited amyloid angiopathy that involved the meninges of the brain and spinal cord, retina, vitreous humor, peripheral nerves, and systemic organs. Clinical features included hemiplegic migraine, periodic obtundation, psychosis, seizures, intracerebral hemorrhage, myelopathy, visual impairment, deafness, and peripheral(More)
A 45-year-old man had bilateral complete ptosis attributed to damage to the central caudal nucleus in the nuclear complex of the third cranial nerve, the other subnuclei being spared. Many discrete inflammatory foci were found in the midbrain and brainstem, a picture resembling that seen in subacute encephalitis. The findings are related to Warwick's(More)
