BACKGROUND Reversible focal lesions in the splenium of the corpus callosum (SCC) or reversible splenial lesion syndrome are rare and little is known about their pathophysiology. CASE SUMMARY The authors describe a case of a 65-year-old female who presented with fever, abnormal behaviour and mild hypernatremia. She was on neuropsychiatric treatment for(More)
AIMS/INTRODUCTION The changes in metabolic parameters in type 2 diabetic patients who fast during Ramadan have not been studied in Singapore. This study aimed to examine the trends of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), systolic blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides in diabetic patients with varying degrees of glycemic control and(More)
24 Startling acoustic stimuli (SAS) induce the early release of prepared motor responses. 25 The current study used SAS, in conjunction with a classical conditioning paradigm, to examine 26 advanced motor preparation of conditioned postural responses (PRs). After inducing generalized 27 startle responses, standing posture was perturbed in 2 blocks of 15(More)
24 Postural responses (PR) to a balance perturbation differ between the first and subsequent 25 perturbations. One explanation for this first trial effect (FTE) is that perturbations act as startling 26 stimuli, that initiate a generalized startle response (GSR) as well as the PR. Startling stimuli, 27 such as startling acoustic stimuli (SAS), are known to(More)
