Single neurones were recorded in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (d.l.g.n.) of adult cats anaesthetized with a mixture of halothane, nitrous oxide and oxygen. The multibarrel-glass micro-electrodes were filled with sodium acetate, L-glutamate, acetylcholine (ACh), gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and bicuculline. In normally innervated, spontaneously(More)
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging and single slice FLASH technique, we investigated reorganization of the hand representation of the primary sensorimotor cortex (SMC) in 16 patients with upper extremity amputation. Patients were asked to perform finger tapping with the intact hand, repetitive eye closing and anteflexion of the amputation stump or(More)
OBJECTIVES Our objectives were to determine if: (1) patients with migraine have B wave abnormalities in comparison to normal controls and patients with chronic tension headache and (2) patients with chronic tension headache have an imbalance in autonomic activity that is reflected in differences in Mayer wave activity in comparison to normal controls.

We performed both a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study using single slice FLASH technique and an investigation with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in a 21-year-old patient. He had suffered a left upper extremity amputation at age 7. Anteflexion of the amputation stump produced an unusual, broad activation contralateral to the(More)
1. Adult cats were anaesthetized with a mixture of halothane, nitrous oxide and oxygen to record from single neurones of the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (d.l.g.n.) with five-barrel glass micro-electrodes. Periphery effects (shift effects) were elicited by large-field phase-reversing gratings presented in the visual field outside the conventional(More)
OBJECTIVE Intervention trials for stroke caregivers after the early poststroke period are lacking. To address this gap, we examined the effectiveness of a problem-solving intervention (PSI) for stroke caregivers who provided care for at least 6 months and who experienced significant strain in their role. METHOD One hundred twenty-two family caregivers(More)
Brainstem-mediated antinociceptive inhibitory reflexes of the temporalis muscle were investigated in 82 patients (47 F, 35 M, mean age 28.3 years, SD 9.4) with acute posttraumatic headache (PH) following whiplash injury but without neurological deficits, bone injury of the cervical spine or a combined direct head trauma on average 5 days after the(More)
