Phase synchronization between the firing of the crayfish caudal photoreceptor (CPR) and an applied periodic hydrodynamic stimulus is investigated. It is shown that the CPR firing synchronizes with a periodic stimulus over a range of frequencies corresponding to the known sensitivity range of the crayfish to hydrodynamic stimuli. This synchronization is(More)
Two neuroradiologists reviewed MRI studies of 34 patients with neuro-Behcet's disease (NBD), 22 with multiple sclerosis (MS) and 7 with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with central nervous system involvement, masked to the clinical diagnosis, age and sex of the patients. Of the patients with NBD 12 were in an acute attack; the others had chronic disease.(More)
Both multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuro-Behcet's disease (NBD) can cause a cognitive dysfunction mainly involving the executive functions. We conducted this study to clarify the probable differential cognitive/behavioral profiles of MS and NBD. Twenty consecutive cases with parenchymal NBD (13 male, seven female), and 20 cases with MS (five male, 15 female)(More)
Our aim was to test the reliability of interpreting MRI studies in neuro-Behçet's disease (NBD) and to determine the sensitivity and specificity of different MRI findings. We prospectively studied 50 patients: 24 had chronic NBD, 12 multiple sclerosis, 5 vasculitis other than Behçet's disease (BD) and 9 patients had BD without neurological involvement. MRI(More)
Although its primary function is monovalent anion exchange, the band 3 protein also cotransports divalent anions together with protons at low pH. The putative proton binding site, Glu-681 in human erythrocyte band 3, is conserved throughout the anion exchanger family (AE family). To determine whether or not the monovalent anion binding site is located near(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate gender differences in Turkish stroke patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Demographics, risk factors, clinical and etiologic subtypes, laboratory findings, clinical course, and in-hospital prognosis of 1 522 patients with ischemic stroke (IS) and 320 patients with intracerebral hemorrhage prospectively registered in the(More)
In mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), the fiber tracts that connect the frontal cortex with the cerebellum may suffer shear damage, leading to attention deficits and performance variability. This damage also disrupts the enhancement of eye-target synchronization that can be affected by cognitive load when subjects are tested using a concurrent eye-tracking(More)
Akinetic mutism is characterized by profound apathy and a lack of verbal and motor output for action, despite preserved alertness. The condition usually follows bilateral damage to the medial frontal subcortical circuits. We report a 59-year-old right-handed woman who was admitted to the neurology ward with sudden-onset akinetic mutism. Her medical history(More)
Spinal subdural hematoma (SDH) is a rare condition and can be caused by several factors. Concomitant cranial and spinal SDH is even much less common. We present a 77-year-old male patient with lower back pain, paraparesis, and urinary retention following a sudden onset headache. Imaging revealed concomitant cranial and spinal SDH related to cerebral venous(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, a T/C polymorphism in the Kozak sequence of glycoprotein Ib-alpha (GPIb-alpha) gene at position -5 from the initiator ATG codons, has been identified. The presence of -5C allele increases the surface expression of GPIb-IX-V complex in a gene dosage-dependent manner. It has been suggested that higher receptor levels might increase the(More)
