Resting-state (RS) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a relatively novel tool which explores connectivity between functionally linked, but anatomically separated, brain regions. The use of this technique has allowed the identification, at rest, of the main brain functional networks without requiring subjects to perform specific active tasks.(More)
BACKGROUND Most patients with multiple sclerosis without previous optic neuritis have thinner retinal layers than healthy controls. We assessed the role of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (pRNFL) thickness and macular volume in eyes with no history of optic neuritis as a biomarker of disability worsening in a cohort of patients with multiple(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the sensitivity of optic coherence tomography (OCT) and visual evoked potentials (VEPs) to visual pathway abnormalities in multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS A total of 40 MS subjects, 28 with optic neuritis (ON) at least 3 months before (bilateral in 5), underwent assessment of visual acuity, Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), OCT(More)
Correlation of the Priestley-Taylor coefficient value, α, with air humidity and wind speed for obtaining evapotranspiration (ET) values similar to those by the Penman-Monteith equation maybe justified from a strictly utilitarian viewpoint in cases when wind measurements are lacking. However, by doing so, a conflict of scale arises, which leaves ample room(More)
