BACKGROUND Brain tumor patients often associated with losses of the small-world configuration and neurocognitive functions before operations. However, few studies were performed on the impairments of frontal lobe low-grade gliomas (LGG) after tumor resection using small-world network features. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS To detect differences in the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether interictal magnetoencephalography (MEG) concordant with other techniques can predict surgical outcome in patients with lesional and nonlesional refractory neocortical epilepsy (NE). METHODS 23 Patients with lesional NE and 20 patients with nonlesional NE were studied. MEG was recorded for all patients with a 275 channel(More)
This case report is about the combined use of modified electroconvulsive treatment and an atypical antipsychotic drug, olanzapine, in the treatment of a 20-year-old man with chronic and refractory catatonic stupor. This patient, with a preexisting diagnosis of autism, posturing, nonverbal communication, and contracture of lower extremities, displaying(More)
— This paper focus on the testbed experimentation of a meshed tree routing algorithm with local link state for Wireless Personal Area networks (WPANs) based on current IEEE 802.15.4 MAC and PHY. The meshed tree uses a block addressing scheme based on tree structure and local link state information for mesh routing. Our approach exploits the information from(More)
PURPOSE This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that patients with epilepsy have abnormal imaginary coherence compared with control subjects. METHODS Thirty patients with seizures underwent magnetoencephalography (MEG) recording using a whole cortex MEG system. Conventional equivalent current dipoles (ECDs) and synthetic aperture magnetometry(More)
Temporal plus epilepsies (TPE) are rare and there are few sporadic reports on this topic. 1–3 Clinically, TPE and temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) are often difficult to differentiate simply by using only general clinical features and MRI data. 2,3 Ryvlin et al. suggested that the presence of early ictal signs and symptoms implying the initial involvement of(More)
BACKGROUND Microsurgery is an option of choice for large vestibular schwannomas (VSs). Anatomical and functional preservation of facial nerve (FN) is still a challenge in these surgeries. FNs are often displaced and morphologically changed by large VSs. Preoperative identification of FN with magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion tensor tracking (DTT) and(More)
