OBJECTIVE To determine the prognostic value of multimodal evoked potentials (EPs) and event-related (ERPs) potentials in coma (Glasgow Coma Score <8), after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). DESIGN Prospective, longitudinal study of neurophysiological responses recorded during traumatic coma. SETTING Intensive Care Unit, Frenchay Hospital, Bristol,(More)
A teased fibre and electron-microscopical study was carried out on the sciatic nerves of mice affected with the peripheral neuropathy in dystonia musculorum. Widespread segmental demyelination was present in all the nerves. Focal axon swellings were also seen, but were relatively scarce and similar in appearance to post-traumatic reactive swellings. The(More)
Frozen samples from 92 malignant astrocytomas were stained with a panel of monoclonal antibodies directed against macrophages and lymphocytes. A follow-up to death was available on 68 cases which form the basis of this study. Large numbers of macrophages were found in all cases; T lymphocytes, mostly of the CD8 phenotype were also seen in moderate numbers(More)
Following unilateral sciatic nerve crush in mice, changes in the neurofilament content of neuronal perikarya were studied, using a monoclonal antibody to neurofilament protein (RT97). In the spinal cord, anterior horn motor neurones, normally unstained, showed a positive staining reaction with immunoperoxidase on the operated side. This reaction was short(More)
Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality after traumatic brain injury (TBI), and its severity is therefore a major determinant of outcome. There have been suggestions that the extent of DAI may be reflected in quantitative measures of cerebral function, including the electroencephalogram (EEG) and brain-stem auditory(More)
Several hereditary small vessel diseases (SVDs) of the brain have been reported in recent years. In 1977, Sourander and Wålinder described hereditary multi-infarct dementia (MID) in a Swedish family. In the same year, Stevens and colleagues reported chronic familial vascular encephalopathy in an English family bearing a similar phenotype. These disorders(More)
Three methods were compared to find a reliable method for demonstrating neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and neuritic plaques (NPs) in brain tissue stored for long periods in formalin or as paraffin blocks. The short-term fixation of tissue, e.g. up to 6 months in formalin does not usually present a problem using any of the three methods tried, e.g. Gallyas,(More)
Surgical biopsy material from four cases of symptomatic fourth ventricle subependymoma, all with typical light microscopic features, was studied by electron microscopy. The ultrastructural appearance of each case was similar, with small groups of tumour cell perikarya widely separated by a meshwork of cell processes containing glial filaments. Large cells(More)
The distribution of neurons expressing the receptor for beta-nerve growth factor has been examined immunohistochemically in serial coronal sections of basal forebrain from aged normal human subjects. Neurons expressing the receptor were observed in the nucleus of the diagonal band of Broca and in the anterior, the intermediate, and the posterior portions of(More)
We have studied frozen tissue from 19 oligodendrogliomas with a panel of antibodies to lymphocytes and their subsets, macrophages, natural killer cells, and HLA-Dr antigens. Macrophages were detected in moderate numbers in 60%-100% of tumors depending on the antibody used. T lymphocytes were fewer in number than macrophages and were present in 62% of cases.(More)
