Levetiracetam as a treatment option in non-convulsive status epilepticus
Non-convulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) is characterized by continuous or recurrent, generalized or focal epileptiform activity on the electroencephalogram and diverse clinical symptoms withExpand

Rapid weather changes are associated with increased ischemic stroke risk: a case-crossover study
Observational studies focusing on absolute meteorological values suggest an association between meteorological parameters and stroke risk but these results are inconsistent and conflicting. SinceExpand

Role of catecholamines in maternal-fetal stress transfer in sheep.
OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate whether in addition to cortisol, catecholamines also transfer psychosocial stress indirectly to the fetus by decreasing uterine blood flow (UBF) and increasing fetalExpand

Spreading depression can be elicited in brain stem of immature but not adult rats.
Spreading depression (SD), a neuronal mechanism involved in brain pathophysiology, occurs in brain areas with high neuronal density such as the cerebral cortex. By contrast, the brain stem is thoughtExpand

Effects of early- and late-gestational maternal stress and synthetic glucocorticoid on development of the fetal hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal axis in sheep
Prenatal maternal stress (PMS) programs dysregulation of the hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPAA) in postnatal life, though time periods vulnerable to PMS, are still unclear. We evaluated inExpand
